Challenge #96 - My Bad/Sorry

Hey! Welcome to a new challenge here at The Male Room. 

I think you might find this theme a really useful one - who hasn't had to fess up and apologise at some point in their lives? Maybe you've forgotten to do something or arrived late or totally messed up an assignment or ........ I'm sure you can fill in the gap!



All we ask is that your project - card, scrapbook page, art journal, tag, atc, 3D item etc - fits our theme and is suitable for a male.

We have a previous winner of one of our challenges joining us as a Guest Designer today. Let's welcome Lynn and perhaps pop over to her blog and leave her some much deserved love.

Guest Designer - Lynn

Now that's saying sorry with humour and style!

And it looks like I'm going to have to say a bit of a sorry too! But life happens, people get ill, time runs short and these things have a habit of all colliding at the same time. We hope you'll be understanding that some of our DT have not been able to join in today.

An amazingly creative use of those small geometric sentiment blocks. We loved the autumn colours and the camouflaged THANKS.


Now do those shapes go inwards or pop outwards? Stunning use of a geometric stencil.

A truly amazing stamp made even more awesome by the simple monochromatic colour scheme. This card just jumped out of our gallery!

Congratulations to you all!

Challenge #95 - The Great Outdoors

Hello and welcome!

Today we have a new challenge which we hope you'll enjoy playing along with. We'd like to see how you interpret The Great Outdoors theme on your masculine projects.



We have two fabulous crafters joining us for this challenge - Martina from umarti and Trina P from phamtasticdesign

Guest Designer - Martina

Oh such iconic elements on Martina's card - the triangular tent and a campfire. Bet we can all relate to that even if it's only been backyard camping!

Trina P

How atmospheric is this scene on Trina's card? Very Northern lights!

And of course our talented DT have also created the most amazing projects to inspire you to play along. Check them out!

It seems you found this a tricky one! So maybe we didn't get as many link ups, but those that did were truly inspiring. A case of quality rather than quantity.

Here's our picks:


Oh my goodness we were totally blown away by this magic slider card! It may have taken extra time and money Linda, but so worth it. Reminded me of watching a polaroid develop.

Oh wow! What an amazing layering stamp, gorgeous colours and the perfect greeting for a photography theme.


We loved all the rich colours, fabulous layers and the placement of smaller elements - the more you look the more you see. Just so gloriously masculine!


Such interesting background layers and a perfectly placed and masked photographer. And what better occasion to meet the paparazzi than on your birthday!

Well done Ana, we were all so impressed that you rose to the challenge and made a card even without camera or photography stamps or papers. You go girl!

Congratulations to you all!
