Monthly Challenges

August Challenge

August Challenge

Welcome to the August 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 July 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 SUMMER!

We are right in the middle of summer, and you surely have some amazing summer memories to document! If that's you right now, then this challenge is for you! Now - we aren't leaving our cardmaking friends out. As always, you can create with just the theme, just the colors, or mix them up and use both! So, if you aren't keen on creating summer cards, then feel free to use just the colors!

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

Zsoka Marko


Stephanie Dagan


Heather Hoffman


Elsie Robinson


Natalia Valkovskaya


As always, there are prizes up for grabs!

One cardmaking entry will receive a $50 gift card to the Pinkfresh Studio Store and one scrapbook/memory keeping entry will win the pictured Pinkfresh Studio prize package, valued at $50! 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, 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. If posting to your blog, 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 Friday, August 31st at 5:00 PM CST. Winners will be announced on Saturday, September 1st.

Such gorgeous projects! Will be looking forward to submitting an entry to this Challenge – we are still freezing here in Australia so will be nice to get out the summer colours and themes.
