04 Feb 2023 16 Comments

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

February is all about Stripes and Plaid! 

We can't wait to see the ways you incorporate stripes and plaid on your projects! From paper strips, to die cutting, to stenciling, to pattern paper - there are so many possibilities!

The following ink shades are the best matches for the colors in the challenge: Ballet Slipper, Apricot, Lemon Whip or Sunshine, Mint, & Meadow.

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!

Posting on the 27th. I only just realized that I do not have any PFS happy birthday stamp sentiments. That is next on my wish list.

Just added card #2…. I did say I love plaid/stripes, right?? LOL Couldn’t resist challenging myself again, any excuse to use my growing hoard of Pinkfresh products :)

23 Feb 2023 Natasha Polite

I enjoyed this month’s challenge. Beautiful colors to work with.

21 Feb 2023 Cristina

Such a pretty color scheme, puts me in the mood for some spring cardmaking!

20 Feb 2023 Jennifer K

I’m very new to layered stencils but really cannot resist your beautiful designs. I fussy cut the best results I inked using a Folk Art Print set my sister gifted me last year. I’m glad to check out the inspiration here to get better at this fun hobby!

14 Feb 2023 Jennifer Leonard

I’m new to Pink Fresh, but not new to scrapbooking! loved the theme of this challenge! I’m all about stripes and plaids! Especially when your focus is on a single photo! Lots of layering with your beautiful papers! For future challenges, I love anything beach/summer themed!

12 Feb 2023 rae kryc

LOVED this challenge – I’m a sucker for plaids and stripes, so I used both on my card! I challenged myself with my ink blending technique within this challenge too (I tend to be very heavy handed) … so this was a great challenge all around, thank you!

I’ve already reordered ‘Flower Market’ , I love it so much. The Design Team inspirations are just beautiful.

11 Feb 2023 Claire Hawkins

Love these challenges and am thoroughly enjoying Flower Market! Perfect fit for plaid and stripes x

I really had to think about this one. I made a card and decided it just didn’t do it for me. I cut apart what I could and just tried to re-invent the wheel. I now have a scrapbook page. I used all the colors mentioned, but as I am not a fan of orange, I used the least amount of it, but used it more for blending. The colors are soft so i tried to keep my layout very subdued and use stripes and plaid in as many ways as I could. Also, there is a lot more white space than I am used to leaving, but again the colors seemed to be more balance with the white. This was definitely a fun challenge; all my dies and colors are PINK FRESH because I love the products.

Hi, went for the colors and did the strips but kinda made my own plaid. Great challenge!

07 Feb 2023 Claudia Ressler

I opted for the plaid for my monochromatic layout. Love this challenge- again!

06 Feb 2023 Samantha Pfrimmer

Love this challenge theme. I can never get too much plaid!
