Scrap your sidebar titles

Request by: Faye at Angels that Scrap

and Cara at Sweet Tomato Designs

I reviewed a lot of sites just to see the different sidebar titles, and I found some titles to be linked, and others not. Just remember the gap YOU see as the blog creator/owner, is not what others see. If you want to see how your blog looks to others, sign out of your blog, and then look at it.

Step 1 - Create your sidebar title.

The final dimensions for a 2-column minima blog are

220 pixels width (height is up to you)

96 Resolution

I scrap mine at 2200 pixels and resize for clarity.

Step 2 – Upload your image.

Upload your image to your favorite photo hosting site. I like Photobucket and Scrapbook Flair. Get the DIRECT LINK code, and save it for later.

Step 3 – Add your gadget.

Go to CUSTOMIZE/LAYOUT/PAGE ELEMENTS/ADD A GADGET.

A window will popup with various choices, select PICTURE. You will then add your web address (DIRECT LINK) from STEP 2.

Within that window, you may add a title (which will be displayed above your title, so not recommended) and a link if you like. Adding a link would be great if you want to add a link to your CT members’ blog, or your store, etc.

Step 4 – Save and view blog.

You will need to move your gadget around to be in the proper place. You can add a title to note what they are for placement, and then remove the title after you’ve placed your sidebar title. If you want to scrap your FOLLOWERS then the gadget needs to be placed above your followers.

Now you have side bar titles.

Many thanks to Patchas at Scraps of Sunshine for suggesting the Word Documents for the instructions! Click HERE for Word Document Instructions.

Here’s to happy scrapping, and

Hugs from the heart,

Jeanette
