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.

$1 6x6 Paper Pack Turns Into 23 Cards + Maybe Another 1 or 2 more

Picked up this cute 6x6 Stduio G printed paper pack for $1 at one of the local craft stores a few weeks back. With the OWH inspiration from Kristie's 6x6 tutorial and the 1 sheet wonder idea, I set out to see how many cards I could make with this package of 15 sheets and some coordinating cardstock sheets.

Studio G
6x6 Printed Paper Pack
15 Sheets

My approach was a little different that Kristie's in her tutorial. I made every card different rather than making several the same. That's just how my creative brain works. I get bored if I repeat the same card multiple times.  :)  This did not happen overnight. I worked on this occasionally over the past couple of weeks.

Here are the results - 23 Cards......so far..... 

Part 1

Part 2
These are the last scraps remaining.  Maybe I can wrangle another card or two with these pieces. 

To put the scrap pieces in perspective, they are on an 8.5x11 piece of paper. The strips on the left are max. 6 in. long.
