Free from my Heart

As I told you on Tuesday when I shared my re-design with you I would have more free blog designs to share on top of the Strawberry Toile that is already up.

So here is The Purple Heart...

This is a Blogger only background I made.
To apply it to your blog please follow the directions below...

  1. Sign-in to the Blogger Blog you would like to change.
  2. Click on the tab labeled 'Layout'.
  3. Click on 'Pick New Template' and change your template to 'Minima' (if it's not already there).
  4. Click on 'Add a Gadget' and chose 'HTML/Javascript'.
  5. In the window that pops up copy and past the following code (If you already have a background using this coding you will need to replace your previous code with this one - you cannot have two)...
  6. Don't forget to 'Save' your changes.

Now the font colors will probably be quite off as they will follow the Minima design pattern, so you could either follow the colors I had planned (below) or design your own :o).
  1. Click on 'Layout' once again.
  2. Click on 'Fonts and Colors'.
  3. Then put the follow numbers in under 'Edit color hex code' for each color box (make sure you keep the # sign there and hint enter/return after you enter the number)...
  4. Don't forget to 'Save' your changes.
