Monthly Challenges

January 2019 Challenge

January 2019 Challenge

06 Jan 2019 17 Comments

Welcome to the January 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 December 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 a little different - we are doing a 2018 review!

We thought this was a perfect time to use up your Pinkfresh goodies from 2018, and play along with some challenges that were your favorite, or that you didn't get a chance at last year! I have created a PDF that you can print out with all of the challenges included. Download it HERE from Dropbox. As always, you can use just the colors, just the challenge prompt, or use them together. And be sure to let us know which challenge you are playing along with!

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

Up first is our January card guest, Ankita Gupta! We will be sharing her full post this week where you will get to know her better, but for is the gorgeous card she created for the challenge!

Ankita Gupta - Watercolor challenge

Kathleen Graumüller - Fussy Cutting/Diecutting

Heather Hoffman - Bows

Amanda Baldwin - Holiday Everything!

Erum Tasneem - Fussy cutting/diecutting

Zsoka Marko - Fussy cutting/diecutting

Lea Lawson - Rainbow colors


One cardmaking entry and one scrapbooking entry will receive a $50 gift card to the Pinkfresh Studio Store! 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, mini album 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. 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 Wednesday, January 30th at 11:59pm CST. Winners & the Top 3 will be announced on Saturday, February 2nd.

For even more inspiration and amazing projects, make sure to follow Pinkfresh Studio on all our social media sites!

We want to see your projects on Instagram! Please add the hashtags #pinkfreshstudio & #pinkfreshchallenge, and tag @pinkfreshstudio to your uploads so we can see them too!

Well, totally motivated to play with Oh Joy revisiting the December challenge… I conveniently missed the deadline! Here’s my link anyhoo. Thanks for the inspiration.

I entered #47, Unicorn ATC, using your challenge on Fussy cutting/Diecutting.

27 Jan 2019 Shelly

Beautiful inspiration and another fun challenge! It was so hard to choose, though after some thinking I was able to decide on a month to do! Yay! :)

26 Jan 2019 Kelly Schirmer

Oh, I was all in for the August summer challenge this week! Yay for the Sweet Lemonade set to get me feeling all sunny!!

25 Jan 2019 Beverly Jordan

I love your challenges but don’t own all of your products like your Puffy stickers so am limited when those products are required for the challenge. I like the colors, crafting method requirements the best! And with all the wonderful stamps and dies Pinkfresh offers, I have more of those than the scrapbooking supplies.
I do like the idea of Mix or Match with colors and theme!!!

24 Jan 2019 Alexandra

This ist my first time. I love these Challenge! Can’t wait for the next
Greetings from Germany!

I love that this challenge allows you to use any collection. I wanted to take part in the December one and now I am in! Yay! :) (Virginia, the Crafter Suitcase)

I’ve missed the December Challenge, so thanks for the opportunity to use my Holiday Vibes stash in January! Yay!

I liked the October challenge and love the Indio Hills 2 Collection, but at that time I did not have time to take part in the challenge. I like fussy cutting too, so here is my entry this month. You are doing a fantastic job with the challenges, so I let you surprise me with what you figure out for the next 11 months.

I am soooooooooo excited to participate in your challenges for the first time!!! I had so much fun playing along. I only have a few Pinkfresh products, so I am keeping my fingers crossed to maybe win some! :)

Thank you for letting us choose any of the challenges from last year. That made it easy for a newbie like me to play along! I would appreciate wide options in future challenges, also, so I can participate again soon, even with my limited PF supplies.

Thank you for the inspiration and this fun challenge!! Happy New Year!!!

I love most challenges but sketch challenges are my favorite. I really love this “round up” style challenge, where you have lots of different ideas to pick from. Thanks!

18 Jan 2019 Sue Symens

So much inspiration it is hard to choose. Thank you!

15 Jan 2019 Yui

I will join in the challenge also this year♡
I enjoyed from September,so this month,I will try another challenge!!

15 Jan 2019 Mirella Rogan (HandmadeByMirella)

I’m new to your products and your challenge, but looking through your previous ones – you are doing a fantastic job with the challenges! I like the fact that there are guidelines in terms of either the theme or the colour scheme, or a mix of both – this gives plenty of space for creativity! Keep it up!

I love this challenge. It gave me a good reason to think over my last year’s achievements and to make scrap-plans for this year.

11 Jan 2019 Natalie

Thank you for doing these awesome challenge’s !
