New Blog Badges for Weekly Favorites and CAS Favorites
 
2 Attachment(s)
Have you ever been mentioned in a Weekly Favorites or a CAS Favorites thread? Then we have brand new blog badges for you. :D

These were created by Lydia (Understandblue), and she deserves a big Thank You for her help. There are two versions.

The two attached text files have the code for these badges. You can copy and paste it for your blog's sidebar.

The original idea came from Darlene_Lyons. She asked ChaosMom whether SCS had anything like this available. ChaosMom recognized it as a great idea, and she passed it along to me. I contacted Lydia, and she designed the images and wrote the code for us. How cool is that? :D

As if you didn't already have enough reasons to start a blog, now you have a compelling one. Too funny! :lol:

ChaosMom 04-21-2012 07:50 AM

WOO HOO!
 
Woo Hoo! - this is exciting for all of our fellow bloggers and crafters -- :p

The FAVS thread is one of my favorites and holds a special spot in my weekly routine....I don't get to visit the galleries as much as I'd like and this thread allows me to catch up on some of the best in the week! SOOOO much talent here on SCS and I've learned so much from the many artists here.... this is just another way to acknowledge their generosity in sharing!

THANKS :D to ALL who share! I hope the crafters/bloggers enjoy this badge and take advantage of it!

THANKS! :D to ALL who support this thread in the so many ways!

THANKS :D to Darlene for the idea!

THANKS! :D to Judi for moving the idea forward, the follow up and the announcement!

THANKS! :D to Lydia for liking the idea and moving it forward! Thanks for creating the badge!

Hope our crafters like it and take advantage of the acknowledgement!

Happy crafting Everyone!

Thanks to Judi, Darlene, ChaosMum, and Lydia for organising these blog badges. I feel honoured to be able to add them to my blog.

LaLatty 04-22-2012 04:54 AM

I'm just curious, do we have a badge for the Featured Stamper, Queen of the Day, and things like that? I wouldn't need one, but for those people that were it might be a nice idea. I thought I saw a dirty dozen badge which is why I'm asking.

westie2 04-22-2012 05:03 AM

Oh and thanks also to ChaosMom! :) A special thanks to Karen for letting us all know when our cards are mentioned!!! LOVE SCS!

havonfamily 04-22-2012 05:54 AM

What a GREAT idea!!! Thank you so, so much! I'm Proudly displaying mine on my blog, now! And thank you to all the hard workers on SCS in front and behind the scenes, that make it all work like a well oiled machine!! :)

Good question, Patty. I've seen the DD badges, but I don't know whether there are other special badges. I'll investigate and will post back again if I find out more.

We've had a question about how to add a badge to a Blogspot blog. My blog isn't on Blogger, so I looked it up and wrote directions. HOWEVER, I have no way of checking whether these instructions are correct or not. Will someone please confirm whether this is right, or correct me where I've got it wrong? Thanks!

How to add a badge to a Blogspot blog:
  1. Copy the code in one of the files attached to Post #1 (above).
  2. Log in to Blogger.
  3. Go to Layout > Add a Gadget.
  4. Click the html/javascript gadget. Paste your code there and save it.
  5. The gadget should then appear at the top of your sidebar. You can drag it to where you want it, and then save your layout.

Before using those directions, let's wait for someone else to verify them.

stampit74 04-22-2012 08:09 AM

Awesome! thanks so much for the badges... going to go add them right now! I LOVE being around creative women! = )

CAKath 04-22-2012 09:53 AM

This is super-cool. Thanks to Darlene for the original idea, to ChaosMom for moving it forward to our go-to girl, LYDIA, who made it happen. I only wish I had a blog now.... Thanks to everyone who contributes and participates to make this site and these Favorites threads something special.

girlgeek101 04-22-2012 10:09 AM

This is so cool! I didn't know we could use badges! I plan to use my when I get home! Thanks so much for this great idea!

Yes, Judi. That is how it is done on Blogger.

I was hoping someone would check my directions. Thanks so much, Lynn. :D

NICE! Thanks, Lydia! Am I the only one having trouble with the Weekly Fav badge? The CAS Fav badge posted just fine, but the badge for the weekly fav doesn't show up when I use the provided HTML code.

Thanks,
Kim

cardsbyjo 04-22-2012 04:07 PM

If I had a blog I would show this proudly!! Thanks GinaNM, for including one of my cards in your list of favorites.

Benzi 04-22-2012 05:05 PM

Thanks ladies for these awesome blog badges. I am proudly displaying mine for 5 cards I had mentioned today. Wow! What a day I had. Thanks to all.

Hi, Kim --

I haven't heard of specific problems with the Weekly Favorites badge code. You did great with the CAS Favorites badge, so I hope you'll give it another try. I've copied the Weekly Fav'es code here, but you'll need to delete the three * asterisks. They are only there so that the code will display in this message.

Copy that code, then log in to Blogger. Go to Layout > Add a Gadget.
Click the html/javascript gadget. Paste the code there, and then delete those three asterisks and save it.

Code is unforgiving. You need to have every single character copied correctly in order for it to work. I hope you'll report back with some better results this time. Good luck. :D
