Challenge #75 - Christmas/Winter Wishes/December Celebrations

Well I don't suppose there will be many of you who are surprised by our theme for the new challenge starting today! And I think we've just about got every type of December celebration covered too. And in the spirit of the season we're giving you an extra week to get your projects linked up - we know this is a busy time of year.

So all you need to do is decide whether it's to be a card, scrapbook page, 3D creation, ART journal page, ATC, canvas, or any other type of project that uses paper. Oh and of course remember it has to be suitable for a male - big or tiny, old or young as long as it's a fella.



We have a previous winner joining us as a Guest Designer for this challenge - the wonderful and very taleneted Ann Chuang. She has some fabulous Christmas projects on her blog - do go take a look - as well as this amazing card she created for The Male Room.

Guest Designer - Ann Chuang

All The Male Room DT have well and truly embraced the December theme and have created these superb projects to get you in the mood for crafting. More details about how they were achieved can be found on their blogs and it would be lovely if you left them a little December love too.

How totally fabulous is her polka dot paper pieced iconic mini car! Wouldn't we all just love to own one like this?!

We loved the clever use of dies to create the paper pieced trees. They look amazing!

We couldn't resist this cute little chappie and love the choices of paper for his clothes. Paper pieced perfection.

Another perfectly paper pieced image! We loved the adorable robin and the way this card opens up.


Just look at that enormous pile of beautifully paper pieced gifts! A perfect stamp choice  and superb attention to detail.
