Blog Design on a Dime Giveaway

I'm so excited to get to bring you a wonderful new giveaway today! Last month I was so blessed to receive a brand new, custom designed banner for my blog. Jacinda from Growing Home designed this banner for me, and I love it!

Would you like to know how she did it? Jacinda has received so many requests for her to design banners or buttons or for answers to blog design questions that she decided to write an e-book explaining step-by-step how she does it all.

Blog Design on a Dime. will teach you everything you need to know about designing your blog without spending a penny on tools! You'll learn how to create drop shadows, circle buttons, and position elements for maximum impact.  You’ll know all about color codes, how to make your own grab box, and link your Facebook page to an icon you make for it. You’ll learn how to create a properly sized header and how to center the elements on your sidebar. And best of all, there's no experience required!

By the end of the book, you'll know how to make banners and buttons like these:


Are you excited yet! I don't have ANY experience with any of this graphic design blog button stuff, so I can't wait to read Jacinda's book. I'd love to learn how to do some of these things!

And now for the giveaway! Jacinda is sweetly offering one of my readers their own copy of Blog Design on a Dime. Simply follow the instructions on the rafflecopter form below to enter.

I have such a hard time with Banners. They never turn out like I expect and are usually blurry or stretched out. Hope this book will help with that.

I have really been thinking of making my own blog for the very first time. This book might just be the extra push I need to actually do it instead of just wanting it :)
