Vintage Snowman background - copyright Susie Jefferson
A sweet little vintage background for wide 2-col or 3-col blogs. It will work with Minima (old Editor) and Watermark (new Template Designer) plus some of the WordPress freebie templates.

Copy all the code into an html/widget box:
<style type="text/css">
body {background-image: url(""); background-position: center; background-repeat: no-repeat; background-attachment: fixed; }
<div id="tag" style="position:absolute; left:0px; top:50px; z-index:50; width:150px; height:30px;">
<a href="" target="_blank">
<img border="0" src=""/>

Vintage Snowman header - copyright Susie Jefferson
Here's the matching header - as it's a rectangle and saved as a jpg, it's your choice if you'd like to left-click to bring up to full size then right-click to copy it and add your own text in your favourite digital programme, or load from the code below.

The header is 950px wide, so try saving without clicking the 'size to fit blog' option first, and if it's too big then reload it, clicking the option.

  • If loading the header using my code, just make sure you wait long enough for the image to load. You should see it in the preview pane BEFORE you click 'Save.
  • If you feel your text is too far to one side, or you use the default Blogger text and it looks too high up, then use my tutorial to adjust.
