It’s time for another card buffet!


It’s time for another card buffet!

This time it will be Christmas cards.

What is a card buffet?

So glad you asked!

A card buffet is an all you can create buffet. That is, all you can create cards for $2 per card in a 2 ½ hour time period. Each card should take 5 – 10 minutes to make. You will have 15 – 20 different cards to choose from.

Want to make your cards for less?

No problem.

Place a Close to my Heart order with me at the buffet. For every $25 you order (before shipping and tax) you get a .25 discount per card. Spend $25, get your cards for $1.75 each. Spend $50 they become $1.50 each.


Receive a .25 discount for every friend you bring. 2 friends, .50 off each card.


Sign up for one of my other classes and your cards will be $1.50 each.

When is this all you can create card buffet?

Advent Calendar

Here is a different style Advent Calendar aka Christmas count down calendar.

I made this with a Recollections chipboard album.  I took the album apart and embossed all the edges with gold embossing powder.

In the pockets and envelopes are tags with the readings for Advent.

For the two pages that have hinges I bought tiny little jewelry box hinges and “rusted” them with Vintaj Patina paints.

Happy scrapping.

Buy My Creations on Ebay

If you have liked my creations but haven’t had the time to make them yourself now you can buy some of them on Ebay.

All my items are made in a smoke free pet free studio.  I use acid free, lignin free, and archival safe products with the exception of paper bags, envelopes, and toilet paper tubes.  I would also be happy to do custom albums or layouts if you don’t find exactly what you want.  A life recorded is twice precious- first the experience itself and then the memory of it full and sweet when we read it again later.  I would love to help you preserve your memories for future generations.

Thank you for looking at the items that I have listed.
