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 Layers! 

We can't wait to see the ways you add layers on your projects! From paper or die cut layers, to floral ephemera and photo layers, to ink and stencil layers - there are so many possibilities!

The following ink shades are the best matches for the colors in the challenge: Coral Reef, Lemon Whip, Apricot, Sky Blue or Ocean Breeze, & Meadow or Olive.

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:

Lobed this challenge! Played with lots of layers.

30 Mar 2023 Jael

Dropping another layout, using lots of layers.

30 Mar 2023 Jenna Chapman

This is my first time posting something in a challenge. I posted my scrapbook page on Instagram. I used the Spring Vibes collection. I love how it turned out. I chose pinks, blues, and greens mainly for my pallet and tried to do lots of layering. Thanks for a fun challenge!

29 Mar 2023 Cynthia Baldwin

Thanks for these challenges! I LOVE interpretations of the challenge! I do love layers, but I do also need to have my pages fit in a page protector in my albums. ;-)

28 Mar 2023 Greta H

Love having themes that aren’t limited to certain products, so everyone can enter. Layers was a good one with so many options, as seen in the beautiful projects made by the team!

28 Mar 2023 Claire Hawkins

As always, great challenge! Love the inspiration from the Pinkfresh Team x

27 Mar 2023 Michelle

Pulling out paper scraps is perfect for a layers challenge!

27 Mar 2023 Deborrah Cannizzaro

Hi again – I made a third entry. I was inspired by a layout I saw on your blog and by a card we made in the February Create and Connect Event. Thanks so much for all you do!

26 Mar 2023 Mel Davis

I love to layer all the things! Really enjoyed this one. I love to see creative ways of using supplies – especially things designed for cardmaking in scrapbooks.

Hey. I had to repost one of mine, so my entries are Nos. 68 and 69.

using a lot of the March release items. I just love that spiral circle and the Happy for You set is fast becoming one of my favorites. I love the images and those beautiful sentiments with coordinating dies. The card has 7 layers – beginning with the scallop plate cover die and finishing with the sentiment popped up on the internal circle. I love the dimension! uses a lot of oldies but goodies, including the Daisy Chain cover plate, Ornate Circle die and the wonderful Butterflies Collection. I love embossing a stamped outline, then using the coordinating stencil to create beautiful colors.

Oh my goodness! I forgot to leave a comment – I’ve played twice, I love all the new goodies I have been blessed with!

21 Mar 2023 Megan N

Oooohhh… layering stencils! I love Pinkfresh’s awesome layering stencils! I’m in for this month’s challenge :)

21 Mar 2023 Debra Nielsen

I love layers! The more the better! Different textures too! Thanks for the challenge!

17 Mar 2023 Vicki Davis

I absolutely love the Detailed Leaf product suite. I used gold to hot foil the outline and then a pretty combination of orange and red Pinkfresh inks. The card base is ivory and I used 2 of the diagonal stitched rectangles to cut out another ivory panel and a brown striped paper. The sentiment is also from same set and stamped with Gathered Twigs ink. A striking card for any time of year. 💖

17 Mar 2023 Vickie Z

Love playing with layers and, of course, Pinkfresh products!!

16 Mar 2023 Samantha Pfrimmer

Layers are a challenge for me. I love the look of layers but I tend to be a clean and simple. This is fun!

15 Mar 2023 Dee

First time playing along with a Pinkfresh Challenge. I LOVE to layer on my cards so that wasn’t much of a challenge for me but lets just say the color inspiration was definitely a challenge – not my typical go-to color palette!
I’d love to see a challenge using alphabet dies. I just used the Jeff dies for the first time today for another project and they are fast becoming my favorite alphabet dies.

14 Mar 2023 Avra Williams

My first time entering a Pinkfresh challenge! I hope it’s ok that I have 4 (similar) cards in one Instagram post. I’m going enter two more (groups of) cards when I get them posted.


Love layouts with layers! Thanks for a great challenge.

13 Mar 2023 Sherri Levinton Thompson

Layers? I tried a scrapbook page, but I wasn’t happy, so I made a card and just love it. I always create with layers but creating with my PF items had me thinking. I kept thinking until it hit me, and then I couldn’t stop. I love the challenges, because I love PINK FRESH. Visit me at

13 Mar 2023 Vicki Davis

I love entering your monthly challenges. My entry is #29. It’s a mini slimline card and I used the diagonal stitched mini rectangles for the 2 bottom layers. I splattered gold paint on the rectangles before adding the foiled and stenciled butterflies. The sentiment is from one of the packs you sell. 💖

12 Mar 2023 Terriann Wilkinson

So excited to play along this month!

11 Mar 2023 Nicole Martel

Love playing with layers!! Great challenge!

09 Mar 2023 Jael

Fun challenge, love layers!! Hoping to get another layout done!

09 Mar 2023 Lacey Robin

I played along! Such a fun challenge!

08 Mar 2023 Debbie D

Loved the tip about using bubble mailers to help with die cutting. Have been bringing out dies that I hadn’t been using because I couldn’t get clean cuts and have much better cuts now. It’s like getting new goodies!

07 Mar 2023 Natasha Polite

I love using layers on my projects.

05 Mar 2023 Pamela Schultz

I always use layers on my cards. They’re more interesting with dimension. The stamp set I used was part of The Stamping Village birthday collaboration.

05 Mar 2023 SSchmidt

Layers challenged me to make an inked layer from die cuts using stamping foam. And then why not emboss another layer and add a piece of vellum for good measure? Thanks for fun challenge!

05 Mar 2023 Amberly Hoffman

Love layers

05 Mar 2023 Andreea R.

Layers are fun, the same way “dimension is life” ;) Loving the spring colors too.

05 Mar 2023 Erin

Oh layers! As a clean and simple girl this should be a unique challenge.
