April 2023 Challenge

02 Apr 2023 28 Comments

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 Flowers! 

We can't wait to see the ways you add flowers on your projects! From paper or stamped, stenciled, or die cut florals, to floral ephemera and washi tape - there are so many possibilities!

The following ink shades are the best matches for the colors in the challenge: Coral Reef, Sparkling Rose, Lemon Whip, Clementine, & Olive.

As always you can use just the theme, just the colors, or use both for your projects! Here is some inspiration for you from our amazing team:

Please check our Shipping Rates page for all the info you need before entering a giveaway for a gift card code.

Now it's time for YOU to play along!

Please look at my instagram where this goes to because it is an interactive card.

26 Apr 2023 Nelya

Yay, I played along twice! The “congrats” 12×12 layout screamed for some hand stitching on the floral paper. And the TN spread (happy memories) has flowers that I made with a heart punch.
Some future challenge ideas: monochromatic, or paper only!

26 Apr 2023 Vickie Z

So, I finally played with the Magnolia set I have had for a while. A bit monochromatic with a touch of gold…. had fun creating it!! Love all the inspiration from the team!!

24 Apr 2023 Lee Murphy

So fun with all the flowers for this challenge… I love patterned paper that was a collab with Altenew and the entire Chrysanthemum suite remains one of my all time faves although I love all the things!! lol
