Pixel Scrapper August Blog Train ~ At the Beach

Hey there, hope you’re having a good summer! Welcome to another edition of “What can I make for a blog train in a single day?” Of course I ended up spending a few more days finishing everything up and making the preview, but my life has been so slammed lately that it was do it in a strictly time-regimented way or not do it at all. The nice thing about designing for a blog train is I don’t have to worry about making a complete kit with one of everything – I’m making bits and pieces you can combine with all the other wonderful offerings from my fellow Pixel Scrappers. This time around our theme was “At the Beach,” with an interesting summery palette of blues, green, tan, and orange.


PixelScrapper collective Pinterest board for blog train inspiration

Here’s what I made for you. In all, this bundle of joy is 5 papers, 2 full size (12 inch across) wave borders, 6 vintage souvenir cards (4 letterpress, 2 full color), 2 transparent graphic elements, 1 doily mat, 1 seashell frame in 4 colors. [Click preview to download.]


Because the papers got completely buried in the preview, and I always like to see what I’m getting when I’m deciding whether to download something, I decided to give you a quick preview of each paper. I’m a little all over the place with these, but I tried to keep things mostly pretty simple.

Previews and links for all parts of the blog train can be found at this post on Pixel Scrapper. There are so many fun designs, in all kinds of styles, from classy to cute to vintage to art journal. Enjoy!

And as always, if you do end up making something using any of my designs, do let me know, I would love to see it!
