How To Add A Digital Scrapbooking Blog Template

Wednesday, March 03, 2010
My dear friend Waileng got me into Digital Scrapbooking with Adobe Photoshop (read her post to find out more). I really love original straight from the camera shots, but I also enjoy giving my personal photos a digital scrapbooking touch. You can make beautiful and unique photo albums.

Another way you can use digital scrapbooking is to customize your blog. Even though there are many great sites offering free ready to use templates, you might want to give it a try and create one by yourself. Here are some simple steps on how to add a digital scrapbooking blog template. Please, keep in mind that you have to be familiar with digital scrapbooking before following these steps.

  1. Don't forget to backup your blog template.
  2. Go to your dashboard and choose pick a new template. Select Minima and then save template.
  3. Create a customized header in Adobe Photoshop with free digital scrapbooking elements that you can download from the Web. My favorite site is Granny Art at http://grannyart.blogspot.com. She gives away amazing stuff for unlimited use. Bless her generous heart.
  4. Once you have created your digital scrapbook header, you can upload it through your dashboard. Choose Page Elements and then Edit at the Header section. Checklist the Placement options according to your wish and then choose image From your computer and Upload Image. Save.
  5. Pick a background image and follow this tutorial on how to add background picture in Blogger. Okay, you're done. Enjoy working on your digital scrapbooking blog template.
