March 2022 Challenge

March 2022 Challenge

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

March is all about FRAMES!

It's time to Frame It Up in March! There are SO many ways to interpret this fun challenge. You can use our paper embellishments, dies or create your own type of frame. The sky is the limit! Our scrapbooking team is featuring the brand new Happy Heart collection on their challenge projects this month, which is where our color inspiration was pulled from as well.

The following ink shades are the best matches for the colors in the challenge: Sweet Mustard, Peach Fuzz, Sparkling Rose, Mermaid Cove and 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:

Vicki Parker

Emily Midgett

Emilie Chamel

Channin Pelletier

Now it's time for YOU to play along!

I had a lot of fun with this month’s inspiration! thank you!

Project #69 is a scrapbooking layout featuring a picture of my husband and me visiting Catalina Island. In the photo, we’re in Two Harbors at Buffalo Campground.

This layout includes stamped imagery from the “Take Pride” set, textured stenciled stripes made using the horizontal stripes stencil, and patterned paper from the “Celebrate” collection.

It’s snowing and gloomy at my place right now, so my pics of this layout are not stellar — I plan to re-take them when I can get better lighting. I LOVE how this layout turned out and am so happy to add it to my scrapbook; thank you so much for hosting this challenge and motivating me to make this project!

You asked us to comment and share a couple details about our projects, or to mention some challenges we’d like to see in coming months. re project #66: I used a couple of different Pinkfresh patterned papers, some Pinkfresh birthday-themed stamps and some old-school scalloped scissors to create a pretty birthday card with a scalloped oval frame.

re challenges I’d like to see in the coming months, that’s a great question. I LOVED this challenge theme! Maybe another one along these lines, where people could incorporate a certain shape, like a star, teardrop, heart or triangle…or Maybe a sketch challenge?

Thanks so much for hosting this challenge. I really appreciate having the bit of extra motivation to add to my card stash.

Entry #61 I used 2 different floral stamps to frame the pattern paper! And embellished with a mix of older collections! Thanks for another fun challenge

Better late than never. Entry 60. I cut up die cuts from the Dainty Blossoms die set to make this bouquet. Can’t decide whether it’s for Mother’s Day or birthday, so no sentiment. Not sure where it would go anyway. I love the sketchy nature of these flowers.

Entry 51 – I used the My Favorite and Grateful Heart papers from Days of Splendor to create a gallery on my project. It’s actually a double page for an extra wide gallery – thanks for this opportunity!

Entry 47. I really enjoyed this challenge! Used the known and loved set with the diamond background.

Great challenge and contributions by both designers and entrants. I used a variety of stand alone frame dies both for A4 cards and slim line cards to create this layout. Some stencilling with the plaid stencil, hand stitched details and groups of blue brads complement my page.

This is a fun challenge! I used the Beautiful blooms, heat embossed Folk Garden and stitched scalloped circle frame. I had extra flowers and did a second card on black card base using a Folk Edge rectangle on it. I think I need more frames.

SO happy to have found your challenge! I used your Just A Hello Floral stamps and dies for my friendship card (along with all the colors in the inspiration photo). I created my own oval frame from black glitter cardstock. All of your DT inspiration samples are gorgeous! ;)

Yes, I’m back! I found a way to use the negative leftover from the mini butterflies! My frame? Back to Basics Label Frames – Hexagon!

I found a very pretty way to ‘frame’ my sentiment on my card today! I hope you think so, too! Those mini foiled butterflies found a pretty colorful place to perch!
Thanks, Pinkfresh for such beautiful products to play with!

This is a fun challenge! I made a best wishes card using the Playful Animal Friends 1 stamp set and the Frame Builder: Botanical Triangles set.

I just found a set of Pinkfresh slimline frames that I purchased and forgot about. Going to open them up and start making some cards.

I love the colours chosen for this challenge! And I know you guys have a ton of great frames to use for this! I can’t wait to get my entries in! I’ve been watching a lot of water-coloring with Emily Midgett so I’m definitely going to have to try that and Frame It Up for this challenge!

Totally love everything about stenciling. You can get such effortless results and yet you can still be very creative. Hoping to play along with your challenges more as I am always inspired when I drop by! Love your DT!

I used the “Just a Hello” stamp set. Sparkling Diamonds cover plate and Folk Edge Rectangles. I love the stencils they make it so easy to add color.
