June 2023 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!

If you haven't checked it out yet, we featured our Top 3 Cards & Layouts, plus the prize winners from the March challenge on yesterday's post! Who knows...maybe it will be YOU this month! You never know unless you play along! :)

June is all about Sunshine on my Mind! 

We can't wait to see the ways you add Sunshine to your projects! You can scrap sunny summer photos, create a sunny scene, use bright summery colors...the possibilities are endless!

The following ink shades are the best matches for the colors in the challenge: Coral Reef, Sparkling Rose, Sunshine, Storm, & Meadow.

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:

It was a bit of a challenge using a specific rainbow like this. I like how it turned out.

While I don’t like the heat in summer I love all the summery inspired craft projects. I like the muted sunny colors featured & tried a new wrap design.

I really enjoy these challenges – they help me focus. I’d love to see a challenge that is black & white with a POP of color.

I love these challenges. It gives me an incentive to use my stuff, while giving me inspiration on where to start!

I like this challenge. I love the colors and super fun picture of my daugters was perfect.
I enjoyed using the colors of the background even in the details, the flowers and the wonderful writings.
the next challenge? something summery of course but also something that talks about complicity and chats between friends … Thanks Lucia
