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!
