Monthly Challenges

January 2021 Challenge

January 2021 Challenge

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 & more!

If you haven't checked it out yet, we 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 is a 2020 Challenge in Review!

We think it's so fun to take a look back at the previous year of challenges, and take them on with fresh eyes! It's the perfect time to play along with a challenge you didn't get around to, or to use up some leftover goodies from all our paper collections, or products that you didn't have a chance to create with in 2020.

The sky is the limit, and we can't wait to see your challenge review projects. This can include layouts, cards, notebook spreads, mini albums, DIY decor...anything that is papercrafting related. As always, you are welcome to use just the theme, just the colors or mix them together and use both! Just be sure to mention which month you were inspired by in your post!

You can view/download a larger version of the challenge graphic at this Dropbox Link - this might make it a little easier to see the challenge graphics a bit larger!
