Welcome to Scrap Tower, my little corner of the world, where I share my creativity with you.

I enjoy many forms of crafting, from paper crafting to sewing. I make custom greeting cards for family and friends. I've made unique custom cards commissioned by friends.

I am proud to have been a card maker for the organization Operation Write Home (OWH) for several years supplying 1,000+ handmade cards for our HEROES.

I continue to make cards as gifts or to sell and I am testing a few other sewing and crochet projects to sell.

My current charitable project is Sew Powerful Purse and I have sewn and donated 20+ purses in the past two years. I plan to donate 10+ purses in 2018.

I enjoy sharing my creative passion with others, including children in Sunday School and Bible School, etc.

Custom Valentine Card

When my friend Sherry found out that I make cards, she asked me to make a special Valentine card for her husband Brent. She told me a little bit about Brent's interests, special experiences and the fact that he is a Doctoral candidate at the University of South Carolina. 

With Sherry's idea to make the card base a lab coat, my creativity kicked in and we had a design idea.  I was ready to research how I would make it a reality. 

Lab Coat Card
Sherry contacted me tonight to let me know that Brent loved the card and the extra special "love note" she added inside.  Way to go Sherry!

My best wishes to Sherry and Brent and their sweet daughter for continued success and a bright future! 

I custom designed the card and embellishments in the pockets using my Craft Robo and Klick N Kut Scan & Trace software.

  1. Your talents HAD to be shared...so I emailed this post out to several of my friends and co-workers from Kemet...I've cut and pasted a few of their comments!!

    "Very nice card…very creative."

    "That is so cute!! I hope you had a special valentine's day/night!"

    "That's pretty neat!"

    "Wow.... that was really a neat idea! Hope you are doing well!"

    "Aww, that was sweet of you. The card looks great!"

    "This is so cute! I just spoke to Susan about an hour ago and she told me about your card."

    "Simply... Amazing"

    "Very nice card…very creative."

    "This is a very neat idea. How can I help her market her work? I am sure this would take off like a rocket... if she wants to though... I willing to help?"

    "Now that is so neat and original. I had no idea that Susan made cards. Thanks for sharing so I'll keep in mind for future times."
