While looking at Ellie Augustin’s blog I found a link to this website: http:/www.thecutestblogontheblock.com/, where you can download and use free Blogger backgrounds. Pretty cool.

It is very easy and has instructions on their site how to install it. But here they are:

  1. Login to Blogger.
  2. From the Dashboard, choose Layout.
  3. Click on Pick a New Template and make sure you choose Minima (if you haven’t already).
  4. Then, go to this website: http://www.thecutestblogontheblock.com/
  5. Click on Free Backgrounds from the left navigation bar area.
  6. You will see many to choose from. They only show a few per page so keep scrolling or use the category list. When I checked there were 244 samples to choose from. This is the one I chose which reminded me of Stampin’ Up!’s Doodle This stampset.
  7. Okay, when you click on one of the backgrounds it will open another window with instructions on how to add it to your blog.
  8. Copy the HTML they show you.
  9. Go to Layout in Blogger.
  10. Click Add a Page Element.
  11. Choose HTML/JavaScript (click Add to Blog button).
  12. Then, leave the Title blank and in the bottom window Paste the HTML code.
  13. Save and you are done!

What you then may want to do is change the Fonts/Colors of your blog to know coordinate with your new background. And/Or create a banner to coordinate with the new blog background.

  1. To adjust the colors of your blog, from the Dashboard, go to Layout.
  2. Click the Fonts/Colors tab and you are on your way!

I’d be more than happy to create a new banner for you to coordinate with one of these chosen backgrounds FREE when you purchase one of my blog or newletter services!

Best Wishes!
