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.

Geared Up - OWH Sketch Challenge #208

When I saw OWH Sketch #208 on Sunday, I knew that I wanted to use my Spellbinder "Sprightly Sprockets" dies for the circles and make a masculine card.

I finally decided on paper from The Paper Studio Stonewashed 4x6 pad.  To fully feature the sprockets, or gears, I decided to layer them on top of the middle strip rather than under it.  I already had this little circle sentiment stamped from some other cards and I laid it on the card to check the colors.  The little smooth circle seemed the perfect final touch to balance out the rough edged gears.

I am pleased with the results for a rustic masculine card.

Here is the OWH Sketch that I used for inspiration.
