Free Blog Backgrounds from the Fall Collection Kit

They’re here!

I was so excited yesterday when I opened my feed reader and discovered that not one, but two of my absolute *favorite* blog background designers had made free backgrounds and headers from my recently released digital scrapbooking freebie- the Fall Collection Kit! :)

If you’ve been searching for the perfect new blog background… Try one of these on for size! :)

The first two sets come from Mikelle at My Style Backgrounds.

*To get any of these headers and backgrounds, and for instructions on how to install them on your blog, just click the images below. :)

Mikelle, I am in love with what you’ve done!! These are just gorgeous!! :)

And this next background and header comes from
Allie at Allie Brown’s Layouts.

Allie girl, you know I love this one!! :) I love the flower accents you added- they give it such a soft and feminine touch! :)

I am constantly stalking Allie and Mikelle’s blogs- If you need an awesome resource for unique scrapbook blog backgrounds, take a look at either of these two *extremely* talented ladies’ blogs. If the Fall Collection Kit isn’t your thing, you will *surely* find something you will just absolutely love there!! :) My jaw drops every time something new is uploaded. :)

*** Edited to Add! ***

I just got an email from an *amazingly* talented blog designer-
Heather
from Butterflygirlms Blog Designs.

She can customize Blogger in ways I have never even seen before! Need to spruce up your blog? Her site is definitely a must see- she offers free backgrounds, headers, blogger templates, and even Twitter backgrounds! And so much more!. I just had to add these two templates she made using the Fall Collection Kit! :)

These are awesome, Heather!! I love what you’ve done- thank you so much for sharing your site with me!! :)

If you use one of these backgrounds, I would LOVE to see it on your blog!! :) Leave me a comment here and I will rush right over to check it out! :)

Thanks so much for looking! :)

I wish, I wish I was internet savy … I have no idea how to create a blog, or maintain a blog. I still don’t understand the concept of digital scrapbooking either. I’m such a dweeb !

Hey! I noticed that they are giving the backgrounds away using the scrap stuff you made. Is it okay that we do that as long as we give you credit??? I have been making tons but I *REALLY DON’T LIKE* not being able to share them!

{Abby M.}

p.s. You have *NO* idea how excited I was when you responded to my e-mail. Thanks so much for taking the time to write back!

OMGoodness….this is just BEAUTiMUS!! It makes me want to start a new blog just so I can use it.

I went to her site, and noticed that her headings are done in a ‘pretty’ font, and it’s not an image. Can anyone tell me how to do this?

Thanks!

Thanks for the free blog designer links. I just made a new one with one of Mikelle’s headers. All I know how to do is save it, upload to flickr, edit and add wording, and then download back to my computer. The extent of my photo shopping knowledge right now, but one step at a time.

Hey Amanda! I did one too. Check it out. http://aintshecrazy.blogspot.com The only problem is that I have 2 computers and I can only see the background on one of them. I’ll be working on that (again!)

Hey Amanda – I just wanted to say thank you so much for posting the information about these fabulous designers! My family blog was in DESPERATE need of a makeover & the whole task seemed kind of daunting to me.

The easy to follow instructions along with the A-DOR-ABLE headers & backgrounds just made me smile!

So I am changing the header & background every day because there are so many cute ones & I want to be sure to use the Thanksgiving/Fall ones before Thanksgiving Day!

Thanks again! I look forward to each new post. It’s very inspiring.

Please check out my blog and let me know what you think! Any hints or tips would be very welcome. Also, how do you make the papers/buttons/ribbons in the first place?

I know it’s been quite awhile since you posted these, but I just found your kit in my long unsorted stash of digital scrapbooking materials and I got so excited I just had to re-design my blog (using the original template I borrowed from your tutorial over a year ago). You can see it at watchthegrass.blogspot.com! Thanks for the beautiful kit and the great template!
