Monthly Challenges

April 2019 Challenge

April 2019 Challenge

Welcome to the April challenge at Pinkfresh Studio! You all created such amazing projects for last month's challenge, and we can't wait to see what you create this month! This challenge is for ALL papercrafters - including scrapbooking, cardmaking, minis, journals & notebooks!

If you haven't checked it out yet, I featured our Top 3 Cards & Layouts, plus the prize winners from the March challenge on yesterday's post! Who knows...maybe it will be YOU this month! You never know unless you play along! :)

This month's challenge is all about FRAMES & SHAKERS!

We have picked some really bright & fun colors from our Out & About collection for you this month, and challenged you to use frames & shakers on your projects! There are so many great options in our travel collection that can be used to frame your favorite photos, but they can also be turned into shaker elements as well. So many options, and we can't wait to see what you create! As always, you are free to use just the colors, just the theme, or mix them together and use both.

Some of our designers have created projects using the challenge to inspire you and help you get started! Check them out:

Heather Hoffman

Amanda Baldwin


Erum Tasneem

Zsoka Marko

Amy Jo Vanden Brink


One cardmaking entry and one scrapbooking entry will receive a $50 gift card to the Pinkfresh Studio Store! The two winners will be randomly selected based on these two categories.

Now it's time for YOU to play along!


  1. Create a new card, layout, journal/notebook page, mini album or any paper project using the challenge graphic posted above. While it is fine if you use items from other companies, the focus should be on Pinkfresh Studio product.
  2. Post your project to your personal blog, Instagram or online gallery. Please make sure you link back directly to the challenge.
  3. Add a direct link to your project using the InLinkz below.
  4. Please make sure to leave a comment on this post! We would love your input on what you would like to see for future challenges.

Get your creations linked up by Tuesday, April 30th at 11:59pm CST. Winners & the Top 3 will be announced on Saturday, May 4th.
