NOTE: These backgrounds work best if you start with a white minima template.

1- Click "Customize" { top right corner }

2- Click "Add a Gadget"

3- Find "HTML/Java Script" and click the "+" sign

You are now in the Configure HTML/Java Script screen. You will see a large box. Now, copy and paste this entire HTML code into that area:

<style type="text/css">
body {background-image: url("direct link"); background-position: center; background-repeat: no-repeat; background-attachment: fixed; }

Choose a background, copy the link underneath it, and then paste it in between the parenthesis in place of where it says "direct link". Make sure you leave the parenthesis in place.

Hit save, and you’re all done! Enjoy your awesome new blog!

I love your new backgrounds, but I can't get them to work. I am following your instructions and nothing is happening.

Hi Jen!
I am SO glad you said something. I accidently put a couple of breaks in the HTML (which made it not work) but it's all fixed now! I just tested it. Thanks for letting me know! :)


Sheri said...

I love your designs. Any chance you'll do some of your old designs with the easier application? Just curious!

Hi Sheri!
I haven't about doing any of my old designs with the easier application, but if there's a particular one you want me to make for you I'd be happy to! Just let me know! :)

I love your backgrounds! Is there any chance of getting the Families are Forever temple to add to my blog? Or can you tell me where it comes from? I would love to add it. Thanks for sharing all of your work.

I love your backgrounds! Very original and not what you always see everywhere else! Thanks! I was wondering if you had thought about doing headers to match?

the anderson family of four said...

I haven't thought about making matching headers -- it's a good idea though and something I'll keep in mind. If you'd like me to make a header for you, I'd be happy to -- just let me know what you want it to say and what background you want it to match! Here's my e-mail:

I'm new to blogging and I've been able to use this template. But I don't know how to add the button to my blog.

This is so cute! Thanks!

Love the templates! I agree, headers would be fabulous! I fashioned one of my own from this template, but a "real one" would be better! ;-)

Love this background...very cute! It looks kind of zoomed in on my blog though. Is there a way for me to make it the normal size that you have? THANKS!
