If you’re new to paper crafts and wondering where to buy the best floral papers, stickers, clear stamp sets, ink pads, reinkers, embellishments, layering stencils, and coordinating dies, check out Pinkfresh Studio! Floral designs are their specialty, but they also offer other themes including travel, Christmas / holiday, and many others.

Pinkfresh Studio is one of my all-time favorite manufacturers of paper craft supplies. They produce papers, stickers, packaged die cuts, embellishments, washi tapes, ink pads, reinkers, stamps, dies, stencils and other paper craft supplies. I have made some of my best planner layouts, scrapbooking layouts and handmade greeting cards using Pinkfresh Studio’s craft supplies.


Pinkfresh Studio is manufacturing some, but not all, of their products in the United States including many of their papers, ink pads and stamps (To the best of my knowledge, their other product types are mostly imported). I try to buy products made in the USA to the greatest extent possible, so to me, this is a huge selling point; I often seek out Pinkfresh’s papers and stamps over competitors’ products because of this.

Often, you will find that craft supplies made in the USA are more expensive than craft supplies made oversees. However, that has not been my experience with Pinkfresh Studio’s products at all. Their products are affordably priced, and the quality is amazing; they did not compromise on quality whatsoever to arrive at their affordable prices.


Read on to check out some of your options for Pinkfresh Studio’s Supplies — and also for project ideas you can make using Pinkfresh Studio’s papers, dies, stamps, stencils and other supplies.

Pinkfresh Studio Papers

Pinkfresh Studio’s paper collections are consistently exquisite. They produce paper collections in a variety of themes, with some consistent motifs emerging repeatedly: florals, botanical motifs, holiday collections released in time for Christmas, and travel themes.

Pinkfresh Studio Dies

As of 2-15-2024, I currently own 2 die sets and one standalone die by Pinkfresh Studio Crafts. I love, use, and enthusiastically recommend all of them. They are as follows:

Curvy Leaves Die Set — This three-piece die set cuts shapes that resemble leafy foliage.

Lacey Edgers Die Set — This die set cuts scalloped edge pieces you can use to make your handmade greeting cards and other paper craft projects look extra special. If you have a full-sized die cutter, you will have lots of options for how big you can make your scallop-edged papers. If you have a compact die cutter, your options for sizes will be limited to the size of your die cutter.

I have a compact die cutter with an opening measuring 3” wide, and I don’t let this limitation stop me from utilizing this die set to its fullest potential. I use these dies by cramming as many of them as I can manage into the 3” space I have to work with and running them through the die cutter; then I use scalloped decorative scissors to cut the other sides of the edgings, which creates usable border designs. This wasn’t necessarily how the die was designed to be used, but it totally works.

Here’s an example project you can check out; I made the lacy borders you see on this page using Pinkfresh Studio’s Lacey Edgers dies set. If you want to see other project ideas for these dies, please scroll down to the projects section at the bottom of this page.


Mini Slimline Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frame Die

This metal die is only one piece, but it cuts two pieces – an inner frame and an outer frame that you can use together or independently. I am totally, completely enchanted by this die, and I use it constantly. My top two uses for it: Every month, at the beginning of the month, I create a two to four-page spread in my planner that includes a list of my top goals for the month. I make a frame using this die, and inside the frame is where I list my highest priority, must-do goals for the month. There are usually more goals than I can fit inside the frame, so the rest of my goals get fit onto the pages outside the frame.

I used two different Pinkfresh Studio dies to make this planner layout. I used the Scalloped Mini Slimline Frame die to make the frame around my goals list, and I used the Lacey Edgers dies to create the scalloped lace border design at the lower edge of the page on the left-hand side of the layout.

My other most frequent use for this die: I like to use it for making greeting cards. Here are a a couple of examples:

Pinkfresh Studio Stamps

I currently own 5 different stamp sets by Pinkfresh Studio Crafts. 4 of the sets I own have been discontinued and are now unavailable online — which is a real bummer, because I really love them and use them often; I’m betting you’d love them and use them too, if you could. If you spend a lot of time hanging around this website, or following me on social media, you will for sure see them being used in my projects. But I’m not going to bother posting them here, because I don’t want to send you on a wild goose chase looking for stamps that are now unobtainable.


I have the “Brighter Days” stamp set, which is still available; it is one I really use often and LOVE. I highly recommend it!


The folks at Pinkfresh Studio have also been known to collaborate with other manufacturers; beyond the Pinkfresh Studio stamp sets I mentioned above, I also have two stamp sets by The Stamping Village that include designs by Pinkfresh Studio. Furthermore, I’m aware of a stamp set that was a collaboration between Hero Arts and Pinkfresh Studio; I don’t happen to own that set, although it is on my wish list. I highly recommend the Stamping Village sets if you can find them; these days, they are getting scarcer and harder to find. They are really fantastic, versatile sets that I use often and highly recommend.

Pinkfresh Studio Ink Pads and Reinkers

Pinkfresh Studio offers a complete line of coordinating ink pads and reinkers that all work together beautifully. I own three of their reinkers and LOVE, love, LOVE them. I want them ALL!


I would have bought more of them, but at the time I was in “buying mode”, they were transitioning to new ink packaging and were sold out of almost all their reinkers except the ones I bought. So I ended up making most of my ink pad and reinker purchases from another brand. However, the inks I bought from Pinkfresh are ones I use constantly for ink blending and stenciling. I can confidently recommend them to other crafters because they are really lovely and high-quality. Pictured above, you can see some examples of ink blended designs I made using a Pinkfresh Studio stencil and their inks.

Pinkfresh Studio Stencils

I have two Pinkfresh Studio stencils: the Clouds stencil (not pictured) and the Horizontal Stripe stencil (pictured with ink-blended papers in the section above). I use both of these designs frequently and love them.


These are both standalone slimline stencils. Pinkfresh Studio also makes layering stencil sets that coordinate with their stamp sets and die sets. These product suites are useful for people who want to create stunning floral images but aren’t confident of their abilities to successfully color the florals, which takes a lot of skill and practice to do well. If you don’t think of yourself as being a botanical illustrator, these product suites are an outstanding way to fake it; they make it really easy to create convincingly realistic-looking florals without investing thousands of dollars and hours in botanical illustration courses.

Pinkfresh Studio Glitter Drops Embellishments

Glitter Drops are small, round, glittery, sparkly embellishments you can use as embellishments for your cards, scrapbooking layouts and other paper craft projects. I like using them as flower centers for small stamped floral images. They can also be used interchangeably with enamel dots. I have some of these and love them; they are super pretty and can help to elevate your cards and other projects so they look better than ordinary, humdrum, everyday designs.

Pictured above is an idea for using Pinkfresh Studio’s Curvy Leaves die set. If you want to create garden journal pages like these for your planner or journal, I definitely recommend taking a look at this die set and considering whether it would be a good purchase for you. At the time of this posting, it’s only $15.99 US, and my opinion is that you will have a hard time finding a better value for that price.

So there you have it: That’s my roundup of recommended craft supplies from Pinkfresh Studio Crafts — plus some ideas for using their lovely craft supplies. Truth be told, I would not hesitate to purchase any supplies from this company; I have utmost confidence in their offerings. But the products I mentioned above are the ones I own, use, and can vouch for from firsthand, actual, hands-on experience.
