"TRY IT, YOU'LL like it" (-yo gaba gaba)

'Try it, you'll like it" is one of my favorite Yo Gaba Gaba songs. LOL.
I am sitting in the sun on the little love seat in my studio w/ my computer on my lap, still in my pj’s and bed head. I have actually been quite productive today, but not overly motivated to get ‘ready’ for the day. I have been playing with my ‘sunny’ new blog look… ok, so blog decorating is actually quite addictive! It’s SO EASY once you FINALLY have it figured out. at first I thought that I had to really pick out something that was very “ME”… because I would probably get it on there, and NOT want to mess with it! but now, I am finding that it’s SO FUN, and you can ‘wear’ whatever… it can change as often as your mood! The yellow is really working for me, and my ‘spring fever’. You can see that this particular look is very ‘house of 3-esque’… it happens to be in celebration and preparation for the House Warming Party this weekend…but it is very spring-y. 
I have a confession: the first time I added a new background and header, I didn’t do it!  I was too afraid that if I got in there, in the ‘inside’ of my blog- I would crash Typepad or something! Lol… I am so not computer ‘savvy’… and I am always SO reluctant to learn anything NEW. Especially, if I have to figure it out myself. I like to be TAUGHT… step by step and hands on.
Ok, so… I decided that I loved the ability to change things around, and I couldn’t always be emailing the web guy- and then waiting for him to ‘get to it!’.. (although, I have to hand it to Stewart.. he is an AMAZING web guy).
Alright, so to all of you who are like me… you like the look, and even the ‘thought’ of a little blog ‘couture’… but you are NOT excited about trying to figure out the mumbo jumbo of the backside of your blog… then take a deep breath, and give it a TRY!! (don’t be scared).
Ok, I am taking to you TYPEPAD people … if you are a blogspot/blogger then I am going to let Rhonna help you out. (we’ll pester her!)
Here is what you are going to do:
1.    SHOP! Ah, this is the fun part! Head over to HOUSE of 3… there are a WHOLE BUNCH of backgrounds and headers to choose from! They are fab… all created by the one and only Rhonna Farrer.  They are totally MIX and MATCH action! Now, you can put just a background up, or just a header.. you don’t HAVE to use both! (but so cute). If you have access to photoshop, or photoshop elements, then you can customize your blog header with your name etc! OK.
2.    Once you have made your selection, and it’s downloaded… log into typepad.
3.    Click on your blog- and then select the tab that says ‘CONTROL PANEL’ (it’s in the top right corner) this will show you your ‘profile’ . you will see a new set of tabs, and one of them will say ‘files’….select ‘files’
4.    To the right, you will see ‘upload new files’… with a browse button.  Click on browse, and find where you have saved your NEW FAB House of 3 background! and select it. Then click the ‘upload’ button. 

Files

Look for the 'file' tab
Upload file
'upload' here..

5.    The new background will show up to the left in the list. Click on it, and the background will open in a new window. (keep it here, you will need to copy and paste this link in #7)
6.    Now go back to your WEBLOG window, and select your blog again- and this time choose the ‘DESIGN’ tab.
7.    At the bottom of the page you will see ‘Custom CSS’. When you open this window, you can paste this:

body {
background: transparent url("http://example.com/background.jpg") top center repeat-y;
}

but where it says: example.com/background.jpg – you cut and paste the LINK to your new background that you have from that list in the files that you uploaded in #4 (above).

That ‘code’ will tell it that you want the background to be centered, and repeat.
If you want to play around with it, you can try a couple different code options that we have listed here in the tutorial section of House of 3. (I haven’t tried them)

8.    Choose ‘save’… and then check out your work! Be sure you ‘refresh’ if you don’t see it.

Ok: now… if you want to add your banner on there… here is what you do:

1.    after you have downloaded, and customized it…
2.    and you are in typepad, and your blog- select the ‘DESIGN’ tab again
3.    select ‘theme’
4.    under ‘banner’ you will see ‘text or image’… click on that.
5.    click the ‘image’ button, and then browse for your fab banner
6.    click ‘save changes’ at the bottom… and you should be in business!

Ok, so I know that seems like a lot of GUNK! But seriously, it’s super easy, and it’s SOOOO fun to try something NEW and to dress up your blog!
And like I said, at first, I was all uptight about what background I chose, and then I realized… so easy to change, so fun to open it up and see it all fresh!  And you can ALWAYS count on House of 3 to deliver NEW, fresh looks for YOUR blog! (we’ll be serving up a new batch in March!)

We have a little award at the House of 3… it looks somethin’ like this:

Hof3_blingtrophy2

We’ll be giving this award weekly, so whenever you change up your blog…send us a link, and we’ll be treating you to some House of 3 GOODNESS!

And just to share that GOODNESS!, I would like to give away a FREE blog header and background of YOUR CHOICE (from the Hof3 selection) customized especially for YOU by ME!! just leave a comment w/ a link to your blog, and your FAVORITE H of 3 blog LOOK… I will select a winner Wed. evening!  (it can be any blog! typepad or blogger…but you have to have a BLOG!! now's a great time to start!)

Ok, I am going to get dressed for the day… sigh… what’s for dinner!?
btw… check out www.liquidtreat.com …. they have some great taste and cool links. (wink)

    Hi Heidi! I’m lovin the House of 3. I was just on your site last night checking out your Blog headers and I love them all. I’m still deciding between Happy Sumo Flowers and the Flutterby banner. It’s so hard to decide which one to pick. I’m kinda scared to change my background considering I’ve accidently deleted all my info on my blog. BTW, this has happened 3 times. I can’t believe I’m telling you this. I’m so blushing right now. Anyhoo, I love your products and everything about it. I especially love the PINK.

    Hi Heidi
    I can’t change my typepad background unless I use one of typepads boring settings. I think it is because I have a “basic” typepad package. Does everyone have the more expensive typepad accounts where it appears that you can change your background or am I totally missing something?!

    Hey Heidi, OMGOSH my friend Jane Jones (you might know her) told me I simply HAD to have one of your backgrounds and banners, and she even bought me the birdies. But oh dear, I had to have pink 😉
    So I have uploaded it to my blog with Jane’s help … and gosh I just love it so much.
    Thanks to the House of 3 xx

    I just updated the look of my blog http://lmelohn.blogspot.com. It was my first attempt, so it is not quite as fancy as yours, but I’m proud to have figured it all out. My favorite blog background at H of 3 is Denim Swirl Blog Couture and banner is Vintage Bouquet Banner Blog Couture.

    Hi, Heidi:
    I love them all (especially your blue and yellow today). However, since my blog is called A Simple Life, the Denim Banner fits me most, I think. My daughter and I both love the color combination (blue and brown).
    Thanks.

    I love it all —I love whatever Rhonna does. Honestly I feel like a pester. Rhonna is really really helpful—one time I wiped out all of my widgets etc. and it through me. I am mustering up enough patience again, because I do want to change my backround. I already bought my two backrounds. I don’t want to win…….but that house of 3 blog of the week is looking like good motivation!!!!!!!!!!!! I have blogger so maybe that is part of it. Oh well I will try try again.

    Hi Heidi! I am so in love with all things House of 3! I used some of the overlays to alter photos and I put them in magnet frames and stuck them on our stateroom door on the cruise we were on over the weekend! It was a nice way to remember which door was ours! I am loving the Funky Dots for blogs and I will ask the husband and Rhonna for help adding it to my blog: http://dani-adayinthelifeofacoffeeaddict.blogspot.com/ I definitely need to jazz it up but I feel just like you worried that I’m going to break something in all of blogger!

    funky dots 2
    happy sumo flowers
    bright flowers
    denim swirls
    snowflakes (but not right now – I am sooo done with winter!)

    Heidi- so so so loving your blog background colors! The yellow polka dots and the aqua (my fav color!)…makes me happy 🙂 I could use alittle happiness in my life right now thats for sure! Anyways, I didn’t see the yellow polka dot avail. for the background, so I am liking either the cool blog or the damastic couture – this was hard deciding which was my favorite- as they are all pretty cool 🙂
    I am loving my blog but typepad is so dang confusing! thanks for the chance to win! 🙂

    Hmmm….I love so many of your blog couture designs. I can’t wait to change it up. But for now I am loving and using the Damask Artisan designs. I love that the blue/black color combo is masculine enough to represent our male dominant household–and the feminine curves of the damask represent me and my personality. 🙂 I have been having so much fun with the Hof3 goodies. My boys loved the Valentine books I created from your kit. (check out Feb 14-15 on my blog) Thanks for the inspiration. I have been in a bit of a creative funk…y’all have helped release my repressed creativity. 🙂 Thanks!

    The Black and White Swirl banner with the Damask Border background.

    Ooo, I love the new look. So sassy! And VERY springy!
    I have to say that all your stuff is SUPER cute. I just ordered some stamps, and the distressing tool from you. LOVE it ALL! You are incredibly creative. I actually do vinyl lettering, and love using your tools!! SO fun.
    I have to say that I honestly can’t pick a design that I love more then the rest. I love simplicity with that little touch of fab! I would LOVE a new look for my vinyl blog. That would ROCK my world!
    K, thanks so for the giveaway!

    I’m in LOVE with the new House of 3 blog couture! I switched mine out to the pink/black, but am still having issues with having the image stretch properly and my column widths.
    I just got PSE for Christmas and recently tried your brushes for the first time. LOVE them! I might just become a digi scrapper yet.

    Hi – greetings from Australia. I’m not sure if I know how to leave a link but my blog is http://www.mariannepollock.typepad.com.
    I saw you at Create 08 and thought you rocked! I would be happy with any house of 3
    Blog wallpaper but I love the funky dots 2 banner the best. Thanks.

    My blog so needs a makeover! I love the color red, so the February banner is really jumping out at me. I am totally afraid of all the technology, though! 🙂

    Hi Heidi, I certainly love all of the Hof3 looks but I’m smitten with the vintage style right now! Currently my blogs shoes are B&W!

    I had so much fun “dressing up” my blog with your new headers and backgrounds! It could get quite addictive! Here is a link to my blog: http://letstalkchaos.blogspot.com/

    Love everything at H of 3 but if I have to choose I’m torn between Chandelier Blog Couture + Vintage Botanical Banner and Tapestry Blog Couture + Tapestry Label Banner. Not sure if your blog couture works with WordPress blogs {i hope they do!} but if they don’t I may just have to open a typepad account! See how I love your products?! {lol}
    Hugs,

    I would totally like a new blog look. I’ve tried to play with my blog but it is not me. I love your damask corner banner but I haven’t had the time to play and figure out how to do it…

    Hi,
    I just changed my blog with house of 3 stuff. I made the header from the brushes I bought…
    Thanks a bunch

    Hi Heidi,
    I just wanted to say a big thank you for the blog backgrounds and banners. I have used vintage botanicals and they are lovely. The banner was easy to add a title to as well. Thanks again.
