Welcome to the December 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 November challenge on yesterday's post! Who knows...maybe it will be YOU this month! You never know unless you play along! :)

December's challenge is Holiday Vibes!

We can't wait to see the ways you get festive with those holiday vibes on your projects! You can document all your holiday memories memories, share holiday cards, make holiday decor or gift wrapping - the possibilities really are endless!

The following ink shades are the best matches for the colors in the challenge: Fruit Punch or Candy Apple, Slumber, Lush Forest, and Cherry Blossom. 

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:

Now it's time for YOU to play along!

I loved using the new ink colors for my holiday projects!

Love all the inspiration from the designers, alway amazing projects! A little late to the challenge but I wanted to do one. Hoping I can squeeze another one.


This is a perfect time to put my holiday stamps and stencils to good use. ❤️💚❤️

Everyone provided such beautiful inspiration for the holiday vibes challenge. I used the folk snowflake stamp and die for my cards, basic banners Christmas stamp and die, white and silver heat embossing, candy apple, slumber, and cherry blossom inks, and ice clear drops.

26 Dec 2023 Denise Bryant

I stamped the Folk Snowflake and sentiment in a gray ink, and then watercolored some of the sections in pink. Added some pink splatters and also a few gray glitter gems that I had in my stash! Used my bow die to create a pink bow to embellish my card.

It was so much FUN creating a double page layout for this Holiday Vibes Challenge! Merry Merry!

24 Dec 2023 Selena

I finally used my free stencil for this challenge. I decided red and green made it festive for Christmas.

21 Dec 2023 Karin @creakarts

I think it would be fun to have a challenge where we can only use stencils to colour everything. Happy holidays!!!

So devastated I cannot find the PINKFRESH STUDIOS ‘Holiday Dreams’ anywhere here in Australia; I can get it from New Zealand or U.S but it’s soooo expensive and postage is off the charts. I’m itching to get the whole story. I suffer from debilitating rheumatoid arthritis throughout my whole body and scrapbooking is my only joy in life besides my grandkids and my daughters. I’m just praying that CraftOnline get them soon. 😢

So fun that I got to participate in the challenge as I ordered the Folk Snowflake (stamp, dies & stencil) – it arrived just in time. I layered two snowflakes (fussy cut one for a smaller version) – loved how it turned out.

Future challenges…mix it up (create projects from two different releases or themes), opposites attract (create projects from a winter release + a summer release or fall + spring)…I guess these suggestions are the same? LOL! This is all I can think of with little coffee. HA!

Such wonderful projects from your designers! They inspire me to do some crafting!

ALWAYS love Pinkfresh Studio’s monthly challenges!!! Fingers crossed I can win this one!❤️💚Happy Holidays!!

05 Dec 2023 Cynthia Baldwin

Thanks for this challenge – I’m always in need of holiday cards and end up making at least a couple pages about holiday happenings, but life this time is always so busy. Thanks for giving me a little push to get a little creative during the craziness.

I fell in love with the Festive Ticket set the minute I saw it. The die I will use all year long. Christmas blessing to all of you at Pinkfresh!
