Nicky April 9, 2009 at 9:46 am

I commented earlier about your pages- I did see the tutorial on how to set up the blog pages- thanks!
However, I am interested in how you actually created the individual scrapbook background pages in Photoshop- are there certain actions/effects that you use to get each page looking the way they do- when I read that original post, I took it that you created each page pf ‘paper’ yourself in photoshop- that’s what i’m curious about-
Thanks again-

Love the new look!

Hi Amanda,

I LOVE your fonts and I just spent way too long trying to figure out a problem that occured when i added a cute font onto my blog. I have a private blog. What happened is that I successfully added the font! Wahoo!! The problem is that it did not replace my blog post titles, so now I have the default font as well as the cute blog font. I have gone through the instructions so many times already. I don’t know what I’m missing. Please advise!
Thanks you so much,

Keka June 8, 2009 at 4:33 pm

Love this new Look!
