Pinkfresh Studio's January Challenge



I was so happy to be reminded about the Pinkfresh Studios January Challenge... I had made a plan to play!  you know the one about the 'best laid plans', right?

For January, they've given us our choice of Challenges from 2018 … I went right for December - they didn't say anything about the 'holiday' being Christmas!  Right?


I have so much love for the December Days set of papers - even though they came out in 2017, I bought two pads so I'd have plenty to play with!  Amongst the snippets [I can never let go of] I found two little hearts … it's a perfect time to use them, as I've chosen Valentine's Day as my holiday... using my newest love Pretty Paisley! stamps, and coordinating dies


This little die makes the perfect little gift tag... or tiny sweet Valentine for someone who always makes me feel good about my cards … even when they aren't so great!!  lol  xx

Oh it's so gorgeous, Michele! I love the paisley shape and the vellum with the hearts! And I'm all about nontraditional colors for a Valentine, LOVE!

Oh how sweet, Michele! I really like the look of paisleys, even though I don't use them too often. I love how you white heat embossed on the vellum. Such a great look and fun to see the polka dots peeking through. The pattern paper is sweet. Just such a fun card idea. Thanks so much for sharing! Hugs!

I think you're on to something, my friend! This darling paisley shaped die IS the perfect tag! I love how you layered them with vellum and white embossing, and your charming hearts are the perfect touch...what a great sentiment, too! LOVE this project, Michele!

I said it on IG and I'll repeat myself here....such a darling Valentine. So clever to use the paisl5y shape and the vellum for delicacy. Sweet, sweet, sweet.

Michele, I was just wondering what stamp you used for the beautiful sympathy card you sent to me. Now the stamp & die set are in my shopping cart. :-D
This tag is so darling and has a fun atmosphere. You used the same stamp & die set and made two completely different projects. I'm very impressed but not surprised because it's YOU!

So fun! I don’t blame you for wanting to hold on to every bit of that paper. PS I read your feature on EH. I didn’t see where I could comment, but I was all prepared to share with the world how absolutely amazing I think you are and how much I love you. :)

OMGoodness, this card/tag is just the sweetest Michele! I love the paisley shape, the paper and vellum you used and those sweet little hearts. And that sentiment, how perfect that is!!! And just for the record, I've never seen a card that wasn't amazing from you! Hugs, Brenda
