Monthly Challenges

April 2020 Challenge

April 2020 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 & more!

If you haven't checked it out yet, we 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 a Sketch!

This month design team member, Cristina Sales, created a lovely sketch for you to be inspired by! You can interpret this sketch to match your crafty style, all we ask is that we can tell you've used it as inspiration. For our cardmaking friends, it's a perfect time to grab the Essentials: Basic Label Frames, and use some of your favorite Pinkfresh floral stamps!

We have picked colors from the beautiful Noteworthy collection, but as always, you are more than welcome to use any Pinkfresh Studio products you have. The colors coordinate closest with the following premium dye inks: Seaside, Olive, Coral Reef, Sweet Mustard and Candy Violet.

We will also have some coordinating freebie cutfiles become available throughout the month of April in our Facebook Friends Group. We would love for you to join, hang out and grab all our freebie cutfiles!

The sky is the limit, and we can't wait to see your challenge projects. This can include layouts, cards, notebook spreads, mini albums, DIY decor...anything that is papercrafting related. As always, you are welcome to use just the theme, just the colors 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:

Now it's time for YOU to play along!

Thank you for the inspiration with these challenges! I am just beginning to participate. I look forward to participating in more challenges. A suggestion would be to use pastel shades in future sketches.

Congrats winners, great sketch & colors for April challenge. But I am confused, I just saw another post where the sketch is different and the end date is May 4. Which is correct?

I haven’t been able to join for ages, but this gorgeous sketch and your circle frame botanicals and the leaf dies from the hello botanicals seemed like the perfect combination 🙂
