Burger Joint Alpha

Alrigty, then, folks, here is the second alpha that goes with my Sweet Shop Collection 'Nifty 50's Diner'. It's called 'Burger Joint'. Some of you older folks, who actually lived in the fifties might recognize the Coca-Cola clock that's part of the design -- they were in practically every diner I ever visited as a pre-teen in those years. The graphic, by the way, is not a photo... it is a graphic I created with my own two little hands and my little mouse, inspired by a photo of a similar clock that I have seen. The red and white of the alpha itself was inspired by the red and white booths, tables and counter seats that were the mainstays of so many of the fifties diners.

I hope that the alpha brings back memories or the older among you, that the younger ones find it nostalgic, and that some of you can find a use for it some where, whether as a font for a scrap page or even just for your collection.

As I stated in my previous post, I only have a few more doodles to finish for the scrap, and then I should be posting it shortly. I am also working on some holiday alphas which I will get up as soon as I have completed them. Hopefully, all of my visitors will find something to their liking here!

New Alpha, Nifty Fifties Diner

Hello, Internet friend, and welcome to Blue Nile Scrap and Alpha Design! If you've been here before, welcome back and thanks for visiting again.

It's been quite a while since I have posted anything but with the holidays and the New Year coming up, I thought I really ought to get busy with some projects for that. I am working on a couple of new things for Christmas, Yule and the New Year, but I've also been working on my Sweet Shop Collection, and I'm very near completing the first of the offerings, Nifty Fifties Diner. As a small preview of what will be going on with that, today I am posting one of the two alphas that will be included with the scrap. It's called 'Nifty Fifties Diner Alpha'.. yes, I know... a very creative name. LOL! At any rate, the preview is below, along with the link to the zip at 4shared. The second alpha should be up within the week and the scrap soon after that. Happy Holidays!
