Blog Re-Design: A Little Shelf Of Heaven + giveaway

Hello darlings! I have another blog re-design to share with you today!

I had the utmost pleasure to work on the blog layout for A Little Shelf of Heaven (FULL make-over package). Kristy wanted something in pastel, light colours that would reflect the theme of her blog well. We came up with a girl sitting on a stack of books in the clouds :) She also wanted me to incorporate some owls into the design, so I designed a set of custom owls just for her! :)

I had a lot of fun working on this design. It was so smooth, fluffy and adorable, I really enjoyed designing and drawing all the graphics :) 

Now, let me show you the goodies!

Kristy's blog BEFORE:



Here's how Kristy's blog looks like:

All the graphics were designed by me (including the girl, books, owls, etc..). 

Kristy decided to go with the FULL PACKAGE, which included:
- custom designed vectors (no stock images were used)
- custom fonts (post header, sidebar headers, post body, blog title)
- custom designed navigation bar, with roll-over and social media buttons incorporated.
- custom designed sidebar and post header
- custom designed post divider
- 3 banners
- blog button with a grab code
- facebook cover image
- twitter header and background
- featured post slider
- personalized blockquote (coded in html)
- custom designed post breakers (i.e: Synposis, Quotes, etc)
- custom designed rating system
- custom designed favicon

Here, take a look at some of the graphics I designed for Kristy:

Lindie Dagenhart said...

I am ridiculously charmed by how shiny the owls' eyes are. They could ask for my first (as yet unborn) child and I would have to say yes. Cannot. Resist.

Great design Evie! I love the little owls, so cute :)

Kathy Ann Coleman said...

This is extremely well done. I like the cheery inviting colors that are lively without being overbearing. I love all of the little details and how the design elements all work as a whole and feel complete. The design of the girl on the header and the owls both have an interesting style to them; reminds me slightly of anime or shoujo but not 'quite'--a good thing, as it increases their distinctness.

You've done a marvelous job here and you should be very proud. The design oozes charm and personality.

Haraiah said...

Lynn K. said...

In generally I'm not a fan of huge headers because it takes forever to load on my crappy line but I really like what you did. The huge space works great with the design and gives it an airy and heavenly feel. The soft color palette is lovely too!

Michaniya Cunningham said...

Oh wow, this is my favorite of yours so far. I LOVE the colors. Very pretty and eye catching design.

rumahteduh18 said...

Owls? I love owls!!! I may fall in love with this design just because of your amazing owls :]

Once again, really well done, Evie!

Daryl Branch said...

I agree on the flexibility of creating customized websites. You could do anything you want your site would do. Wordpress is also good for business sites. For me, I'll go for customized one. custom Scottsdale web design

Maricris Sisom said...

This blog is actually the most girlish blog I've ever seen. the owls are so cute, like they're begging you to have an eye to eye with them the entire time.
