June 2021 Challenge

Welcome to the June 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!

June is all about DIECUTS!


This month our challenge is all about diecuts! There are so many ways to create for this challenge! You can use our metal dies or our cutfiles, but you can also you our diecut ephemera packs from our paper collections too. So many options!

We've picked colors from the new Happy Blooms collection, but you are free to use any Pinkfresh products that work for the challenge! Check out our Cutfile Shop for some great inspiration, and we also have some great freebie cutfiles that you can use on your projects 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, tags, 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!

I’ve been wanting to use Slim Braided Circles Panel die for a regular size card & finally did for the challenge. Thanks for continuing to give us a chance to win for playing with our PFS goodies!

I just purchased some new pinkfresh dies and had so much fun playing with them on my layout. I also did some fussy cutting! Thanks for the challenge

I made a card for a friend. I diecut the panel with diagonal stitched rectangle die on different colors of cardstock, then cut and pieced together. Then I diecut the flower from the dainty blossoms set and embellished with clear jewels. Stamped sentiment is from the Choose Hope set.

Hello, again! Yes, I created another layout using the Let’s Stay Home collection and the anemone washi and die set. Actually, all of my May 2020 storytelling was made with this collection and a few odds and ends of other Pinkfresh products. It includes two 12X12 pocket pages, two 8.5 X 11 layouts and some daily journalling written/stamped in a weekly page set-up. For this particular layout, I knew I wanted to use the rainbow paper, but needed to scale it down so that it would fit better in the 8.5 X 11 format. YES – Fussy-cutting to the rescue! And instead of adding white journalling strips, I opted to use some cut strips from the same paper I used above to have the same color repeated on top and on the bottom of the layout.

Hello! I am over the moon excited for all the awesome new products Pinkfresh Studios has released in the past few years. On my “Love You” layout, I mixed and matched all kinds of Pinkfresh goodies from a variety of its collections – Let’s Stay Home, My Favorite Story, Life Noted, The Mix as well as the Anemone die-cut washi tape! Thank you for making collections that coordinate with each other, but stand out on their own as well. YAY!

I love Happy Blooms! I focused mainly on the blues and pinks because they highlighted the colors in my pics!

I have a real crush on Happy Blooms, this collection is sublime!!! I’m also a fan of die-cuts, I put them everywhere in my creations, this challenge was made for me 😊
I find the Pink Fresh Studio collections presentation page so pretty every time, I decided to cut out all the little squares from the Happy Blooms one and use them for my layout.
Thanks for this challenge and thanks to the design team for the inspiration ❤

I was so excited to find a die for mini slim line cards that I bought it the day it came out. THANK you PFS. I am entering my envelope (and card) in this month’s challenge.
