New Beginnings in The Male Room

Golly it's cold this morning in my little cottage. The garden is looking very bleak and the wind is making the trees sound very spooky indeed - I can't wait for Spring!
Meanwhile we have a new challenge this morning in The Male Room - the theme for the next two weeks is - NEW BEGINNINGS.
I didn't make a card this time but another desk calendar -take a look

I cannot take credit for this as I followed the video tutorial over on Paula's blog HERE -it's a lovely clear tutorial and very easy to make so do have a go!

I have used Soft Suede and Early Espresso card stock for this with a little Very Vanilla too and the image is from the Traveler set. The base has also been stamped with the World Map stamp - it's huge and perfect for manly backgrounds such as this.

Don't forget that this is a very special time at Stampin' Up - if you want FREE goodies take a look at my post HERE and drop me an email to place your orders.


  1. I think your vintage desk calendar is a perfect take on our challenge. I do like that image and the colours are perfect!

    I have to tell you that it's very, very cold over here in Northville - at the time of writing this message it's -14C (that's 7F for my American friends). I still convert to centigrade all the time!!

  2. A lovely vintage-style image for your calendar Jacqueline! Hope it warms up soon! Vicky x

  3. Another fab idea for a man, I'm glad I have you as a crafty friend!
