Pixel Scrapper May Blog Train – “Vintage Memories”

It’s been a long month, what with the pandemic quarantine, and that’s making it nearly impossible to finish this move that’s taken far too long already. I’ve been dealing with a flareup as well; stress is the biggest trigger for most chronic illnesses to get out of control, and there’s been about a dozen times more than I can handle lately. But I’ve been designing more again, so that’s a plus.

This month’s blog train palette is relatively muted vintage-y colors; they almost make me think more autumn than spring, but I’ve come up with a relatively seasonless minikit for you anyway. Those of you familiar with the items in my shop might recognize the strawberry floral as one of my hand-drawn paper sets, and sharper-eyed folks might recognize the multicolor chevron pattern from my rainbow patterns set. As far as elements go, I’ve tried to stick to a more modern vintage vibe, with classic oval frames and ribbon flowers, a banner and some velvet ribbons and a key. I’m reasonably happy with it, given that I prefer bright colors and usually have trouble with muted palettes. Download your copy HERE or click the image below.

I also dug into my stash of CU elements to create some clusters for an alpha set to go with this blog train. The font used is Alice, one of the Google Fonts, in case you want to use it or find a good pairing. There are 3 different styles: uppercase are foil with a larger cluster, lowercase have a small cluster with the same foil, and I’ve included a plain lowercase foil set as well; together, they make for beautiful and flexible titles for your pages, or you could use them for a lovely monogrammed journal card or homemade stationery. The largest are around 2.5″ tall. Pick up your copy HERE, or click the image below.
