October Challenge

October Challenge

07 Oct 2018 20 Comments

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, I featured our Top 3 Cards & Layouts, plus the prize winners from the September 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 all about being FUSSY CUTTING/DIECUTTING!

We've chosen some beautiful colors from Indigo Hills 2 as your color inspiration, and the prompt is to include fussy cutting or diecutting on your project! As always, you can use just the colors, just the challenge prompt, or use them together.

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

One cardmaking entry will receive a $50 gift card to the Pinkfresh Studio Store and one scrapbook/memory keeping entry will win an Indigo Hills 2 prize package, valued at $50! 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, 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.
  2. Post your project to your personal blog, Instagram or online gallery. If posting to your blog, please make sure you link back directly to the challenge.
  3. Add a direct link to your project using the InLinkz below. 
  4. Please make sure to leave a comment on this post! We would love your input on what you would like to see for future challenges.

Get your creations linked up by Wednesday, October 31st at 11:59pm CST. Winners & the Top 3 will be announced on Saturday, November 3rd.

This was a fun challenge and I really appreciated the inclusion of fussy cutting as I’m a new crafter who does not own a die cutting machine.
