October 2012 STS Road Trip

Road Trip!!!! The theme this month was "The Big City."

I've created two alphas this month. "City Skyline" lines up to create a really neat skyline effect along your border. I'm working on a scrap page of pictures I took recently in Bruges and it looks really cool with this alpha! I included blank buildings if you want to use them as elements, as well. The "Rush Hour" alpha was so much fun to make! I spent ages working on the cars, which I built by tracing basic shapes from pictures of cars and stacking them up until I had a complete vehicle. Then I added textures to make them look more "scrapbooky" (new word there) and colored them to match up with the Road Trip palette. I think I'll be offering a recolor of this alpha soon, as I would like it more with a wider color range. This alpha is really 5 alphas in one, as I included the complete alpha on each vehicle so you can mix and match as you like. Again, I included the blank vehicles for use as elements if you so desire. And I also included a handy road for you to line them all up on! It seems like these two alphas took ages to complete, they were both complicated in one way or the other. I'm really happy with how they turned out, though! I hope you all enjoy them! The papers I included are notable only because I used pictures I took as textures, so that was kind of fun to work with. I've been snapping "texture" pictures everywhere I go lately!

Purpled Papers Pack freebie

I've been hard at work designing for the next STS Road Trip and working on my very first kit, which is for the STS September Color Challenge! I'm really excited about the stuff I've been working on and can't wait to share. But, since its still a couple weeks until Road Trip time, I wanted to post SOMETHING for you all! I've been building up my stash of CU overlays (have you SEEN the free ones at Delicious Scraps???), so I thought it was about time I shared some of the results. All of these papers started with the same base color, but using various overlays and filters, they all look really different! I thought I'd do a set in each color I work with. First up for you today is the Purpled Papers Pack!

Grab it HERE! Enjoy, and have a great day! As always, I'd love to see what you create with my stuff! Email me at
