Seeing as today is a celebration in many places, fireworks is appropriate theme. Have fun creating your masculine firework themed projects.

Here are some inspiration projects from the Design Team:

Winners Challenge #61 Stash

Huge apologies for the late posting, some of our DT have had gremlins to deal with.  We had lots of gorgeous projects for our DIE CUTS challenge which made it hard to choose a winner, but we got there in the end and here they are:


An out of this world pop up box card flew to the top of our list
with its red rocket and star filled backing paper.

(in order of submission)

We loved the colours in this along with the underground map.

A perfect collection of interests on one beautifully masculine card.

Who doesn't love to see Dolphins splashing about, gorgeous.

We loved this idea, so clever and effective.

Congratulations to you all - these were fabulous. Do pick up your badges from the side bar and display them on your blogs.

Before I go, there's just time to remind you of our current challenge - TMR#62 - OFF THE EDGE . Already the thumbnail is looking fantastic. You've still got time to join in - deadline is midnight (BST) Tuesday 20th June (that's 7.00pm EDT). Have fun!!

Winners - Challenge #60 - Theme

Oh dear! I am so, so sorry everyone. I've done it again and am late with the winners post. The thumbnail display looked amazing with so many fabulous creations for our Stars challenge.


Yes, there really are lots of stars on this wonderful birthday card.
A brilliant take on the challenge and I'm sure, much appreciated by the recipient too!

A lovely clean, crisp and CAS card.
Love the pop of neon pink and the super way you've incorporated the design and word star!

Great to see a 3D Exploding box - such a lovely bold, bright star.
Super way to give a gift too! Great work.

This is a fabulously grungy card! Lots of lovely texture here too.
Love the colours and the layout.

Congratulations everyone, do pick up your badges from the sidebar and display them on your blogs.

Before I go, a quick reminder that our current challenge is a Stash Challenge - TMR#61 to use DIE CUTS on your masculine projects.
