52 Cards Challenge - UK Scrappers - let's go! Week 1, 2,17

Natalia Harandon, aka Mystic Nat on UK Scrappers, hosts a 52 cards challenge every year.  In some years I have played along for a time - I can't say that I have ever completed a full year.  Still - I think it's fun to join in with challenges so I decided to backtrack and join in this year - even though we are nearly half way through and up to Week 22!

So I have been making cards in isolation, but it is much more fun to join in with challenges so I will make to each week going forward, until we move and I can't craft any longer. 

Week 1 - Theme = New (new beginnings, baby, home or simply using new stash - the choice is yours!)

I had to make some New Year cards for a colleague at work, and this is one I came up with -

Desperately trying to use up my snowflake/snow stash before going to Australia.  Theme of "New" for New Year.  I like black and white with one accent colour!
Week 2 - Clean and simple
I kept this one really simple - with such busy patterned paper, you don't need much else!
I used my Framelits tag, Merry Christmas white peel-off, and some snowy buttons with some Stickles on top.  That was it!

Week 17 - using old scraps

Nearly all of my card making features old paper/embellishments - but this paper is older than most!  Another New Year card. 
I was getting great mileage from my Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 4 dies.  Also really old rub-ons and more white peel-offs in the stars.  Some Icicles Stickles and I bought two packs of these snowflakes from Hobbycraft quite some years ago!


So that's it for now - a long way to go to catch up, if I can!  Thanks for stopping by.  :)


  1. Labels 4 is such a lovely set isn't it. Really lovely cards - I just love all the snowflakes xx

    I have got behind on this challenge a bit - was 10 weeks behind before my mega session last weekend and only 4 weeks behind now - I will catch up before the year is out LOL!!!

  2. My plan was to join in this year ... Sadly that never happened lol. I like that you've jumped in late, maybe that's the shove I need too :)
