Just a quick post introducing my new blog design. I actually did this myself with a little help from Shabby Miss Jenn Designs...an incredible site on the web for blog design kits and digital scrapbooking kits. I actually used both in doing this blog. The blog design kit is called "Posies" and the digital scrapbooking kit is called "Summer Posies" which I have pictured below.
What I like about the blog kits to start with is that they provide the header banners - ready for customization like I did here. However, you usually don't get all the unique complimentary letters nor as many do-dads to embellish or the selection of background papers. That's where the digital scrapbook kits are wonderful.
For my blog, I used the red polkadot paper and embellished with the green ric-rac and the cherries do-dad from the scrapbook kit and created the blog background in my photoshop program. For the blog header, I used the non-photo header provided in the blog design kit and embellished it with the polkadot letters from the scrapbook kit.
I am by no means an expert on this - blog codes or photoshop - but there is a wealth of info on the web and the instructions in the blog kit by Shabby Miss Jen are clear and understandable. So even a novice can do it.
Stop by and take a look at the Shabby Miss Jen Designs shop - your mouth will water with all the goodies you'll find there. And, you can find a link to Miss Jen's blog where she showcases so many beautiful samples of her scrapbook kits and blog designs in use.
Leave me a comment on what you think - and thanks for stopping by!
