Challenge #79 - Sport/Winter Olympics

Well, the Winter Olympics are well underway now, so what better time to use this as an excuse to craft something sport related. Of course, it doesn't have to be an Olympic sport and it doesn't have to be a card. We love seeing projects in all genres and styles and our only stipulation is that it needs to be suitable for a fella.



Our Guest Designer for this challenge is a previous winner Laurie from Stamping Up North. Check out her super cool card and go visit her blog - HERE - to be inspired by her creativity.



The Male Room DT have been getting all fired up by making sport related projects to encourage you to play along. And remember crafting is such a great hobby for keeping brains and fingers fit - well that's as close to playing sport as I'm prepared to get! Check out these gold medal-winning creations:

 Superb distressed edges and a bit of a 3D look with all those wonderful layers to this little atc card. We loved how the more you look the more you see.


The most amazing little tag - the addition of a photo makes it look like a mini scrapbook page. We loved it!


 
We couldn't resist this one with the larger than life Chaplin image. Those googly eyes brought a big smile to our faces!

Challenge #78 - Inspired by Television

Hello and welcome to the next challenge here at The Male Room.

For the next fortnight, we'd like your projects to be inspired by television. Perhaps you have a favourite programme or series? Perhaps you love to just chill out on a comfy sofa wearing a onesie? Perhaps television means playing games to you? Perhaps an art journal page describing the sort of relationship you have with television? Or maybe the whole idea of a television will inspire a 3D project? Or any other idea that pops into your head.

However, it takes your fancy just ensure it's suitable for a male and you're sorted!


Our Guest Designer for this challenge is a previous winner Zvonka from ustvarjanjepomoje. Her blog has many fabulous and inspiring posts, and she is talented at adding those interesting little touches that make a card special. Do go take a look - HERE.  And be sure to leave her some love too!



Well, Zvonka took the gaming route. Now it's time to reveal how The Male Room DT brains were working. If you have time and want to know the details go visit their blogs and maybe leave them a lovely comment while you're there.

Challenge #77 - Vintage

Hello and welcome to the next challenge at The Male Room.

What does the word VINTAGE mean to you? I found this definition:

of high quality and lasting value, or showing the best and most typical characteristics of a particular type of thing, especially from the past.

I think the most scary thing is that as I get older all the things that surrounded me as I grew up are now considered vintage! So this theme should give everyone plenty of scope to get creative and share some vintage vibes.


Our Guest Designer for this challenge is Majda - a follower from our instagram feed. Her blog is an absolute delight and filled with great creativity and artistry. Be sure to go take a peep - HERE - and leave her some love to acknowledge her talent.

Guest Designer - Majda

Do you follow us on instagram and facebook? If yes maybe you could be joining us as a future Guest Designer. If no, well what are you waiting for? Follow the links and get following!

The Male Room DT have also searched out their vintage supplies and created some truly inspirational projects to help you on your way.  You can find out more about their thought processes by popping over to their blogs.  It would be great if you left them a lovely comment while you're there.
