January 2022 Challenge

January 2022 Challenge

 

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:

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!

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!

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

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.

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.

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.

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!

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

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 🤞 🥰💕💕

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.

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!

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. :)

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!

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.

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!

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!
