January 2022 Challenge

January 2022 Challenge

09 Jan 2022 51 Comments


Welcome to our first challenge of 2022! We do things a little differently for the first challenge of the year.

January 2022 is a 2021 challenge review!

We think January is a perfect time to take a look back on all the amazing challenge prompts we gave you in 2021! You can use one of your favorites, or circle back to a challenge that you maybe didn't get to participate in. It's also a perfect time to use up any bits & pieces you might have left of our 2021 collections as we wait for all the new collection to arrive!

We have created a PDF where you can see the collection of challenge graphics a bit easier. It's is available for viewing/downloading via Dropbox:

Feb: Alphas/Words
Mar: Flowers
Apr: Gold
May: Anything Goes
Jun: Diecuts
Jul: Butterflies

I created a last minute 3rd layout! Using the Dec challenge creating a Christmas layout it is #127. I had so much fun creating with my pinkfresh stash this month!

01 Feb 2022 Manny

I’d love to see an “inspired by..” challenge. Could be inspired by our favorite crafter, our everyday life, our garden, our fav color combo and etc….pretty much another “anything goes”

31 Jan 2022 Sara Lihz Staroska

This is my first time entering a Pinkfresh Card Challenge. I’ve been making cards for over a decade and many of my products were from an MLM and I really hadn’t branched out of that space. As I started exploring other brands, Pinkfresh was the first company that caught my eye. Your products are gorgeous, and I now have a small stash of Pinkfresh products I go to over and over.

This month was a great way for me to begin your challenges with a range of options, so I made three cards:

March: Floral
April: Gold
August: Stripes

I can’t wait to do it again!

Love these challenges. I chose May 2021 challenge- Anything goes.

31 Jan 2022 Karen Hasheck

Thanks for the great challenge and the opportunity to participate! I love creating with your layered stencils and washi tape so any challenge with those as a theme I would love!

31 Jan 2022 Andreea Raghina

My first PF project and thought I would also join the challenge, since it is such a creativity free theme :) Looking forward to joining some more.

31 Jan 2022 Danielle Vincent

I love the January 2022 options! I’ve actually been able to make 3 cards for this challenge – whoo hoo! The creations are so beautiful and inspiring. I chose the March Flowers, the April Gold and the Nov Wreath themes for my entries. Thanks so much!

30 Jan 2022 Claudia Ressler

Love these challenges, especially the January one where you can just let your creativity flow out…😀

thanks for a year of great challenges! looking forward to seeing what new challenges you have in store.

30 Jan 2022 Carol Guy

Thanks for the January challenge. I especially liked the “Anything Goes” category and used that for my entries. My favorite is the last one, made with the new "Floral Envelope,‘’ and “Sparkling Diamonds.” I just love them. I don’t know how Pinkfresh Studio keeps coming up with all these great offerings! In the Floral Envelope entry, I foiled the “Radiating Background 2” and used the negative behind the Sparkling Diamonds. Foiling is surely a happy addiction for me!

29 Jan 2022 Connie Newell

Excited to enter another card for the challenge. Fun that we get to pick from a lot of categories.

29 Jan 2022 SSchmidt

Love the chance to use my Dainty Blossoms die set.

29 Jan 2022 Győri Erika

Challenge: Nov -wreaths :)

28 Jan 2022 Lisa Moen

It’s been awhile since I played along with the monthly challenge. I did lots of fussy cutting and hand stitching on my layout.

28 Jan 2022 Caitlin Davenport

Card #2 is entry 85. I was wanting to delicate look to send to Mom to let her know I was thinking about her.

27 Jan 2022 Amber Bissonnette

Created a 2nd layout inspired by both the “anything goes” & “die cut” challenges.

26 Jan 2022 Luanne Ford

The monthly challenges are my favorite! This month was great as we had lots of choices, thank you!

25 Jan 2022 Caitlin Davenport

My entry is #74. I made mine for my sister to remind her that even though middle school is hard, we all love her.

25 Jan 2022 Debbie Frank

Pink Fresh is the best company to bring out the glimmer,stencil,die and stamp product. I love how they all work together!
My first time doing a Pink Fresh challenge!

24 Jan 2022 Amber Bissonnette

I made a 12×12 scrapbook layout! It is #70 and I went with flowers!

24 Jan 2022 Jen K

Hi, this is my first time entering the PFS challenge. My entry is #68. I chose the month of December for winter holidays. My card is a Valentine’s card with red flowers. Red goes with Christmas and Valentine’s Day is a winter holiday – perfect! I really enjoy working with your products.

23 Jan 2022 Eulanda Silvey

I love this challenge!! I was thinking of a new challenge for this year some time. Now that you have foil die cuts and everyone seems to be foiling that would make a great challenge. Foil! I am so addicted it’s absurd!!! LOL! Great DT projects. Your team is amazing! 😀

18 Jan 2022 Alexandra Y

This is such a fun challenge for the start of the year! I just got a bunch of new products from Pink Fresh so I am using this as an excuse to get inky right away! I’ve already submitted one card for the Leaves and Greenery challenge and I have some fun ideas for the Stripes challenge and the Flowers challenge!

18 Jan 2022 Greta H

Always look forward to the January challenge! Loved making my first card which I made for the April Gold challenge, but it actually fits several others as well. Hoping to get at least 1 more entry made using a set I recently got, but haven’t opened yet. Thanks for continuing your generosity in having the challenges for us!

18 Jan 2022 Amy Moore

Added another card using a technique I made myself. Fits in the gold, flowers or anything goes category.

17 Jan 2022 Patricia Manhire

I have finally got some Pink Fresh Studio products and can’t wait to use them!

17 Jan 2022 debbie d

Just posted my second card for this challenge using the Anything Goes theme from May.

17 Jan 2022 Terri Armstrong

Loved this challenge – I submitted my three cards already! Thanks for so much beautiful inspiration!

17 Jan 2022 Kelsey Thomas

Just submitted my entry using the July butterflies theme. :)

16 Jan 2022 Erin T

What fun! Thanks for all the inspiration, diving on in with my grab bag goodies.

16 Jan 2022 Karen S Day

I love seeing what everyone creates each month! Hope to play along often in 2022.

16 Jan 2022 SandyC

Decisions, decisions, decisions! 🤗

14 Jan 2022 Sue Symens

The braided circles dies leave room for fun stitching and the diamond stencil creates a bold stripe background. Thanks for the challenge. I would love to see a sketch challenge.

14 Jan 2022 debbie d

I chose June die cuts for my challenge card. I die cut the color block stripes background and colored the strips with PFS inks and then did some weaving to create the woven background. added a die cut frame. heat embossed the blooming branch floral on vellum.

13 Jan 2022 Maree Crozier

I was inspired by the colors in the September challenge and the prompt of leaves/greenery. I used a combination of Happy Blooms and Keeping it real collections.

13 Jan 2022 Terri Armstrong

I’m so excited to participate in some of the pink fresh challenges this year! I’m adding my first submission now, following the March 2021 prompt of flowers. I am addicted to all the washi tape now!

12 Jan 2022 roxanne tellini

Lol. It looks like I goofed a bit. I hope it is ok if I used September’s color scheme with August’s theme.

12 Jan 2022 Lisa E.

So much beautiful inspiration! I’m playing along for the first time!

11 Jan 2022 Shelly

Beautiful projects and another fun challenge!! :)

10 Jan 2022 Lisa Scott

Today is my birthday so I want to start my year off on the right foot with a PFS challenge (love this idea btw so many possibilities) ! I’d love to see challenges with specific die cuts (the essentials line), florals, vellum, and still loving the color ones:) fingers crossed 🤞 🥰💕💕

10 Jan 2022 Jess K

Hello, this is my 1st time doing a PFS challenge. I used one of the sets I received in the grab bag (Full Bloom and followed the Gold theme from April). Love seeing all the other creations too. Can’t wait to see what future challenges you come up with.

10 Jan 2022 Michele F

Starting my year on the best foot: with Pinkfresh Studio products in the house! I was inspired by a recent video from Channin – but didn’t have the coordinating stencils… you’ll have to come by to see how I got around that issue!
March in Michigan doesn’t include many flowers, but they sure were my inspiration today!

09 Jan 2022 Sharron Hoff

It’s only been only a few months since I entered my first Pinkfresh challenge, so I missed most of the 2021 challenges. For my entry this time, I’ve chosen the March theme, Flowers. :)

09 Jan 2022 Xochitl I Martinez

I learned about this challenge the morning after I began my back to in person school layout. The papers were from office hours and the stickers and ephemera were from office hours, some days, keeping it real, let’s stay home and noteworthy. I was very pleased with how all the pinkfresh stuff gave me a not so childish and not so primary colors school layout!

09 Jan 2022 Amy Moore

Love the monthly challenge. This fits into several categories…anything goes, striped background, and others. I foiled with silver aurora foil and love the sparkling effects. Stenciled with Pinkfresh inks. Any chance of getting a bundle for reinkers? Thanks again! Hope you enjoy my card.

09 Jan 2022 Dorothy Ayotte

I just received the fabulous grab bag sets of stamps and can’t wait to make something for this challenge. That is, if I can get some help in loading the images onto my instagram, linking it so it can show up on the Pinkfresh site or wherever it goes! Being 60+ doesn’t make these things easy LOL!

09 Jan 2022 Eva Walker

Just purchased some pink fresh for Holiday. Haven’t opened yet. Found out about pink fresh from SCT.

09 Jan 2022 Kelly Daye

What a beautiful year at PFS. I’ve love the collections, inspirations and started to collect all the dies, stencils and stamps. Thanks for the win last month, I know it’s a random thing but it prompts me to use my collection of pretty PFS goodies and I really appreciate the opportunity. Cheers!

09 Jan 2022 Deb

Exciting! I am going to partake for the first time ever! When is the submission due by?
