July 2021 Challenge

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 June challenge on yesterday's post! Who knows...maybe it will be YOU this month! You never know unless you play along! :)

July is all about BUTTERFLIES!

You will find beautiful butterflies in our latest collection, Happy Blooms. We've also got some fantastic Butterflies options in our stamps, hot foil plates, stencils & dies as well! There is also a freebie butterfly cutfile in our Facebook Friends Group. Join today to download all the freebies!

The following ink shades are the best matches for the colors in the challenge: Ocean Breeze, Passion Fruit, Coral Reef, Sweet Mustard, & Tidal Pond.

As always you can use just the theme, just the colors, or use both for your projects! Here is some inspiration for you from our amazing team:

Sophie Delorme

Raquel Arribas

Erica Andersson

Emilie Chamel

Carissa Wiley

Nathalie DeSousa

Now it's time for YOU to play along!

I love this challenge! Who doesn’t love butterflies and it was fitting for the layout I did of my gf beating stage 4 BC! I think butterflies represent a new birth or look on life and she got one!

Perfect excuse to try out my new Dainty Blossoms die set, although I had to pull the butterflies from my stash. New color combo for me too. Thanks for the challenge.

I used turquoise butterfly paper and a die for slim line cards to create a layout of the image of a butterfly popping out of the picture. Thank you for the fun challenge!

I see a card with just the colors, so assume that’s OK to enter. Butterflies are on my wishlist—love the latest release! Could be fun to have a challenge to use various shapes—like squares, triangles, etc. Thanks for continuing to give us a chance to win with these challenges!
