Monthly Challenges

October 2019 Challenge

October 2019 Challenge

Welcome to the October 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!

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

This month's challenge is CIRCLE ELEMENTS!

We've deemed October all about circles!! We've given you a color palette that is a combination from Just A Little Lovely & Office Hours, but it will work with many past paper collections as well. It's a great month to break out some of your favorite Essentials dies, or your favorite circle embellishments from our paper collections!

The sky is the limit, and we can't wait to see your circle interpretation. As always, you are welcome to use just the theme, just the colors or mix them together and use both!

Some of our designers have created projects using the challenge to inspire you and help you get started! Check them out:

Ashlea Cornell

Ashley Horton

Heather Hoffman

Jung AhSang

Missy Whidden

Kathleen Graumüller

Amanda Baldwin

Nathalie DeSousa

Natalia Valkovskaya

Anett Gelencsér

TaeEun Yoo

Jana Maiwald-McCarthy

Kristina Pokazanieva


One cardmaking entry and one memory-keeping entry will receive a $50 gift card to the Pinkfresh Studio Store! The two winners will be randomly selected based on these two categories.

Now it's time for YOU to play along!


  1. Create a new card, layout, journal/notebook page, mini album, DIY or any paper project using the challenge graphic posted above. While it is fine if you use items from other companies, the focus should be on Pinkfresh Studio product.

I love the interesting color palette. That mustard and navy with a spruce green. Soft water color just spoke to me. Thanks for the fun challenge!

I’m gonna play along with this challenge from Pinkfresh for the very first time. Sadly I only have one stamp set from Pinkfresh, and the one from STAMPtember with Simon Says Stamp, so I have to be very creative 😊

Love circles! Great challenge

Do we have to incorporate all of the colours from the palette or which we want?

How exciting… I just started collecting some Pinkfresh stamps, and got the watercolors. Can’t wait to join the fun!
