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.

OWH Midweek Throwdown Challenge: Miss You Cards

It is another busy week for me and I have been working on this one card all week. I had the design almost completed, but I had not chosen a sentiment.  When I saw today's Miss You Card challenge, I decided to use a play on words and finish this as my Miss Shoe card.  
Miss "Shoe" Card 
My inspiration came from Papercrafts Special Get Inspired Magazine, pg 20-21, December 2011.   www.papercraftsmag.com

Digital image:            Victorian Boot, www.paperprintables.com (free)
Embossing Folder:     Tiny Mosaic, Cuttlebug
Die Cut:                    Labels Eight, Spellbinders Nestabilities
Cording:                    Brown, Bead Landing
Ink:                           Walnut Stain, Tim Holtz Distress

  1. WOW! This is so unique and amazing...Susan you seriously have like this crazy talent!

  2. So different than anything I've ever seen! Super job :)

  3. Oh! So wonderful! I just love the lacing you did to match the lacing on the shoe. The stitching takes it up a notch. Of course I love the pun! Great job!! Thanks for playing in our Midweek Throwdown Challenge at Operation Write Home.

  4. Oh, as Sherry and cindyann said, this is so unique! The twist on the saying is seriously cool and the stitching of the boot finishes it off so perfectly. The embossing and border stitching also raises it up.

  5. Perfect! How fun that our challenge helped you complete your card, I love it :) Thanks for playing in our Midweek Throwdown challenge at Operation Write Home!

  6. Susan, what a clever card. I love the faux Leather look and that vintage shoe is so special. Such a great idea using that sentiment.

  7. Oh that is hillariously awesome and will certainly bring a smile to both sender and recipient! Thanks for the inspiration as I was wondering what to do with my new boot sizzlit die. Now I know!

  8. Perfect sentiment for the image! I really like how you laced the background.
