Just Backgrounds

Usually I spend my creative time making blog themes however on rare occasions I create a background or two without the coordinating elements. Below are a selection of those backgrounds ~ each is offered for free! Simply click the images to be taken to the background pages. You can also find a selection of free themes mixed in with my prefab Designer Blog Themes.

All of my background images are created for use on Blogger and with the "Simple" template.  I offer an easy to follow step-by-step tutorial for setting up this template ~

  1. Hi Sharon,
    I think there is a problem with the link of Garden's Delight.
    I cannot see the code page.

    Greetings from Austria,

  2. Thanks so much for letting me know about the link Klarissa ~ I really appreciate it! I also noticed the link was missing for Peach Burst too so both are now fixed and working.

  3. Hey, Sharon,
    nicely done by a pro.

    Keep on creating!

  8. Gorgeous! How do you make blog backgrounds; is it something anyone can do? Forgive me, I'm a newer blogger :)

  9. Thanks for your comment Joy, I'm not sure that anyone can create blog backgrounds, you really need to have a working knowledge of html & css code along with feeling very comfortable working with graphics but I do offer a tutorial for how to create your own blog background with the purchase of my tutorials so if anyone gets courageous they can give it a try.

  10. Hi Sharon! I saw all of your creations and I'm very impressed at your work! I find your backgrounds very unique and at the same time charming as well. Please keep up the good work!

    Your designs remind me of those European girls and tea time...and a lot more! :)

  11. Thanks so much for your sweet comment Ainee!

  15. I just found your blog over at Books are Portable Magic and WOW! I love your backgrounds. I'm bookmarking your page and I will definitely be using some of them on my various blogs.

  16. Thanks so much for your sweet comment Michelle ~ I'm so happy you found me too and hope you find some lovely backgrounds to use!

    1. Dear Sharon,

      Your tutorials are FANTASTIC!!!
      Thank you so much for the free templates but I was wondering if the template that is white with the feathers on each side is available?

      I am hoping to create a white on white shabby theme for a cake blog and am trying to find an elegant look that will showcase my cake designs.

      Thank you,


    2. Thanks so much for your comment Sherry ~ the background you mentioned is part of a new theme I haven't had a chance to publish yet. I'll see if I can't get that completed and posted. Will let you know once it's done.

    1. Hi Murat, I'm sorry I don't understand what you're looking for. The free backgrounds and paid themes I offer are all I create. I think you might want to search for a "Template Designer" but I'm not sure.
