I forgot to post..whoopsie! I created a page to document my parent’s 51st anniversary in 2018. I love to scrapbook pics of them. They are so cute together!

Thanks for making this challenge so flexible! I went with April- Flowers because I adore the big floral in Nothing But the Best set. I used words from Beyond Happy. I love that you have matching dies for that wonderful sentiment set.

I always like January with all the challenges. Mostly because I sometimes play along but never photograph my cards or upload them. It gives me a 2nd chance. I like the challenge more than the posting part. Love the inspiration from everyone! So pretty! I think some themes in the future that would be fun are, wreaths, butterflies, nature, sympathy, birthday.

I was guided by a sketch in creating my layout. The stamp-die-foiling plate-stencil (although I didn’t use the stencil on my layout) set is very helpful in creating a cohesive design for my layout. I love the PFS patterned papers’ subtle color. Makes me want to add more of their patterned papers to my stash.

I am excited that I can use my favourite floral stencils and dies to make a very beautiful card with Pink Fresh Studio products.

What a great year was 2023 and how fun is this months challenge! My card is based on several months, March/April/August/September/October.

Hi! That was hard work to figure out how to do this but I’m thinking I’ve done it all now. I posted a set of cards I made for my pastors wife on instagram for the April flowers challenge using painted peony mix. I posted a second entry making valentines cards in a box using painted dalhias, tuberose and painted peony mix. On instagram I have more pictures but couldn’t link more than one. I hope I can remember how I did this so I can do it again another month.

Some ideas for challengings would be Washi tape, other than a card, fancy fold cards and press plates. Thanks!

It’s always fun to review all the challenges and pick one to use for a January entry. I used a couple of my all time favorite PFS products: Lush Vines and Dainty Blossoms. Thank you for the continued challenges!

Can you mix the challenges, e.g. use the March theme and November colors on a project? Thank you.
