Scrapbooking with at least a little pink

scrapbook page

Pink is such a controversial colour at times. At first it is the colour for all things baby girl, then that can go so over the top that even the girliest of girls can turn against the colour pink. And what on earth the poor pink ever do? I think I’ll have to keep doing my part for the promotion of pink… Like your next challenge!

Your challenge is to create a scrapbook page, card or another project using pink! Use a little pink, a lot of pink, pink on something obvious or pink where it’s unexpected.

Post your project on your blog or an online gallery and leave a link in the comments on this post. One randomly chosen entry will win a prize pack of pink scrapbooking supplies!

    Oh Wow Shimelle that LO is stunning absolutely stunning just had to leave you a comment before I start on this challenge.

  2. Mary Bainbridge Says:

    Pretty in pink

    I just love pink, thank you for this challenge!

  5. Jennifer Says:

    Had to laugh when I saw this challenge, as I read it just after I uploaded my entry to ‘scrapbook with circles’, and my page for that is OTT on pink! I won’t cheat and use it for both though, I might try and challenge myself to use pink on a layout that isn’t about my daughter as all my pink supplies get used up on pages about her! xx

  6. Helen Overton Says:

    I love using pink:

  10. Caz Says:

    As soon as I saw this pic of my niece from their hols I knew I needed raid the stash for the PP… as it pretty much matches her dungarees!
    … and with pink! It was my NY resolution for 2009 to use more pink in LOs as I’m an anti-pink girl!

  11. Karen Says:

    there is only a little pink on this, i think I use too much so i restrained myself

  12. Katy Says:

    My pages do not usually involve a lot of pink, but this one does! I have blogged here.

  13. Lisa O Says:

    i am adding this layout although i ended up with a much more muted pink tone than i originally thought i would:

  14. Lizzie Says:

    Yay for Pink! I’ve been soo busy today and not at home. I will have to see what I can do with some challenges tomorrow… so far it’s photos of feet, nature, manmade objects and a close-up… then scrapping with a sketch, aqua, white & red and now a layout with lots of pink! I will be busy…
    I heard something interesting the other day, about pink… Apparently, up until some time in C19, girls were dressed in blue and boys in pink. Pink was seen as a strong colour, so it was used for boys. (another one of my useless but interesting facts!).

    a card in pinks.

  16. Leah Says:

    I had a really hot pink of cardstock in my stash so used it on this challenge. Here is my LO

  17. Julie Says:

    I did a pink page, which also covers the circles and the B&W photos challenge. I think I’ll check the prizes and post the link in the challenge with the prize I’d most like to win!!!

  18. Gemma Says:

    hooray for pink! mine’s HERE

  20. Lynetta Says:

    my pink effort :-)

  21. Jenny Pitcairn Says:

    A very pink card here!

  22. Hazel Says:

    This started out as one of the sketch challenges but I ended up moving things around as it wasn’t working – anyway I’ve realised it qualifies for entry into the pink category instead!

  23. Kirsteen Says:

    I don’t need to be asked twice to use a little bit of pink:

  24. Lynetta Says:

    my effort for the pink challenge. Another page completed in my document 2010 album. Thanks for all the inspiration Shimelle :-)
    title hand cut – yes I know so retro!
    and a close up


  25. AlliR Says:

    I love pink but with 2 boys I don’t use it that much. Here’s my LO for this challenge:

  26. Cate Says:

    That is a lovely layout! I have gone for a less pink card, you can see it here.

  27. Lizzie Says:

    Definitely Yay for Pink! I did manage to do just this one page challenge this weekend. I have posted it on my blog – it’s a post with all 4 of the challenges I was able to do. Look for the Pink Page towards the end of the Post!

  28. Kirsty Smith Says:

    I’ve gone for little pink accents and my finished LO is here: A Day at the Spa

  29. rinda Says:

    Made some pink bunting shaped flags for a mini album; sprayed with glimmer mist. You can see them here:

  30. Manda Says:

  31. Joanne Says:

    Here is my layout on my blog:

  32. kate Says: Pink is my favourite!!!!

  33. Liz Says:

    Only a little pink here- I tried to put in more, but I just couldn’t make it work for me!

    3rd layout down.

  34. Alison M Says:

    With three boys I don’t use pink very often. Here’s mine with the boys by a pink ice cream sign!

  35. Carolyn Phillips Says:

    I don’t use pink a lot, or so I though, but I used it in abundance on various LO this weekend. However the card I did for this challenge has just a hint of pink on the flower. A thanks you card.

  36. Kitty Scrapper Says:

    I love using pink in my crafting and created a cute card which can be seen on my blog

  37. luluuk Says:

    Having 3 boys, I rarely use pink – but I’ve used throughout these challenges – I could have entered several pages in this category.

  38. Lisa-Jane Johnson Says:

    Something else I finished this weekend

  39. Sinead Says:

    Love using pink though I have to admit I don’t do it half enough! Here is my layout ‘You & I’:

  40. Natalie Williams Says:

    Here’s my layout (it’s the 3rd one in my post). I combined this with one of the sketches – not sure if that’s allowed but I liked the result anyway :)

  41. Lou Says:

    I actually enjoyed making this card..and it only took 5 mins!

  42. Catherine Says:

    I used pink on a birthday card for my mum, only the third card I have attempted!

  43. Olivia Says:

    Love pink so this wasn’t a difficult challenge for me!

  44. CoCo Says:

    A ‘little’ pink! I have scrapbooks full of it! So I made a card…just to challenge myself.
