Blog Banners:

When I first started designing blog banners, it was really difficult to upload them into blogger. You had to go in and change around the HTML and upload the photo, link it up to the header, delete widgets. Now, it is EASY PEASY! I send you the completed banner, you upload it right to the blog.  Please let me know if you do not feel comfortable uploading your banner and I will be more than happy to help you place it correctly on your banner. 

Your blog's background color can be changed to coordinate with your blog banner, just tell me which color from your banner you would like to use and I will give you the HEX code of that color so you can modify your blog banner. I can also do this service for you if you. 
Many people come to the design process with no idea of what they want to do, others come knowing exactly what they want their banner to look like. 

It is really easy for me to work with you when you are able to give me: 
 1. a blog sample which you admire (I have several on the old design blog HERE.
2. a patterned paper which you really like (stop by your favorite online store like EclecticPaperie and send me the link to the paper you like. With a combination of digital brushes and design savy - I can create the look of most patterned papers. It's a fun look.
3.  Font and Graphic selections and color selections for each. I can try and match most Stampin' Up! © colors.  I have a wonderful selections of fonts for you to choose from - just send me an email at and I will send you the design element file.
4. Do you want you banner to float (like my banner at the top) or would you like it "boxed" in with a border? If you would like a border, what color would you like the border/s. Thick borders, Thin borders, Floral Border?
5. Do you have a photograph you would like to use for your header? Let me try and help you use that photograph so that it is resized and not distorted. 

As you can imagine, FreckledANDFun has been overwhelmed with responses and requests for banners and watermarks since the announcement of our move. I am thrilled and thankful that you have entrusted me with your design work. I will gladly help everyone out, and I hope to give you my undivided, personal service. It may be a little time before all the requests can be handled, but I will definitely make sure that your design work is given the utmost care and careful creation! 

I wanted to share Tammy's new blog banner with you:
