April 2021 Challenge

April 2021 Challenge

**Due to all the events going on with iNSD on Saturday, May 1, we will be postponing all monthly challenge posts by a week. The April winners will post on Saturday, May 8th. Our May challenge will go live on Sunday, May 9th. Thanks for your understanding & flexibility!**

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! :)

April is all about GOLD!

This month our challenge is all about gold! There are SO many possibilities for this challenge, and SO many different products you can use! If you picked up any of our recently release gold foil washi tapes, these are PERFECT for the challenge. You can also use gold paint or ink, diecut from gold paper, or do some hot foiling with our brand new hot foil plates!

We've picked colors from our recent washi tape release, but there are plenty of other paper products that we have released that will match these colors perfectly! Stampers can use shades of our 48 premium dye inks to match these happy & fun colors. Check out our Cutfile Shop for some great options, and we also have some great freebie cutfiles that fit the theme in our Facebook Friends Group. We would love for you to join, hang out and grab all our freebie cutfiles to use on your projects!


The sky is the limit, and we can't wait to see your challenge projects. This can include layouts, cards, tags, 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 amazing projects to help inspire you! Check them out:

I love colour challenges as it forces me to use the colour combinations that I would not normally use together. My usual go to colour combinations are blues and greens and sometimes I throw in a yellow. I found this challenge a little difficult as I have very limited Pinkfresh Studio products – need to rectify that real soon. Love the inspiration provided by the team….

Hi. I used the only two stamp sets that I have. Used the flowers from the Keep going stamp set and the quote from the Folk Hummingbird stamp set. I have never created anything like this, so thank you for this interesting challenge <3

Thanks for the challenge, I used the Some Days collection to create my page. I added a touch of gold with sequins.
I love all the possibilities of Some Days, graphic or floral, it’s great!

Super inspired by the projects! I made a layout with my parents’ wedding cake picture. Thought they looked so happy and these colors were perfect!

My first time entering here… Absolutely love your products and this was a fun theme! I added some gold accents and golden hues to my project, hope you like! Using stencils would be a fun challenge idea, I just bought some from your brand. xx
