I am just starting my blog, and trying things out! I couldn't find a blogger layout template that appealed. I noticed a lot of the cute layouts have a credit in the corner for thecutestblogontheblock. What a great site! I did not use any of their wonderful free backgrounds, but I did rely on their Blog Secrets to customize this blog layout and create my own background!
I started with the Minima layout because it looked the easiest to alter. Just like my love of altered art, I had to start my blog by altering it. I added a third column, changed the width, and it went on from there!
They recommended the Digi Scrap Depot website for freebies, and were my eyes opened! I am a graphic/web designer and had never known about digital scrapbooking. I went a little crazy on my background, but I was having such a good time with digital paper and elements from the Beautiful collection by Bel Vidotti!
I hope it is not too much. Let me know what you think. Future posts will contain info and pictures on cards and other projects, so please check back.
