July 2020 Challenge

July 2020 Challenge

05 Jul 2020 28 Comments

Welcome to the July 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 May challenge on last week's post! Who knows...maybe it will be YOU this month! You never know unless you play along! :)

This month's challenge is SUMMER!

This month is all about SUMMER! We know that summer looks different this year, but it is still important to celebrate & document it. It's also a great time to catch up on creating layouts from summer's past.

We have picked colors from the brand new Let's Stay Home collection, but as always, you are more than welcome to use any Pinkfresh Studio products you have. It's a perfect match to last year's Out & About collection as well! The colors coordinate closest with the following premium dye inks: Aquamarine, Candy Apple, Ballet Slipper, Clementine and Ocean Breeze.

We will have a couple freebie cutfiles become available throughout the month of July in our Facebook Friends Group. We would love for you to join, hang out and grab all our freebie cutfiles to use on your projects!

The sky is the limit, and we can't wait to see your challenge 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!

Some of our designers have created amazing projects to help inspire you! Check them out:

Amanda Baldwin

 Anna Komenda

Missy Whidden

Channin Pelletier

Anett Gelencsér

Melissa Phillips

Nathalie DeSousa

Natalia Valkovskaya

Kristina Pokazanieva


One cardmaking entry and one memory-keeping 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, DIY 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.

I see I wasn’t the only one that wanted to use chevron with this awesome colour palette!!

Honestly I love the inspiration and colour challenges. They allow for a lot of freedom while still giving you that starting point!

I love all the new types of product ideas that Pinkfresh is coming out with. I have used the pop up starburst stamp, mini hello die word, and some of the bold sentiments on my card. I ink blended before clear heat embossing the starburst stamp and affixing my sentiment.
