    Thank you SO very much for the social icons – I have spent ages choosing between them. I like the Fire one but would love to know the RGB/HEX values if possible to get my headlines closer to match. could you help with that?

    Hello Carrie:
    I’m in the process of re-designing my blog and wanted to thank you for providing these wonderfully designed free social icons. However, I had to find another gray Facebook “Like” button out in cyberspace, and I’m wondering if you could add on to your icon catalogue. Thanks again!

    Best Regards,
    Lillian Baulding

    Hi Carrie! I’m just getting my blog setup – I was literally up until 8 this morning messing with it all night. Thank you so much for sharing your awesomeness! Your blog is going to be my very first featured blog once I get up and running. Thanks again! They are beautiful!

      Carrie – I sent you a message as well… I was able to use the ad that you had in with the icon files and add it to my blog! Check it out and let me know what you think of the whole setup! If I actually stick with this, I may use your services to spiffy it all up. Very much an amateur over here.

      Thanks again!

    Thanks, Carrie! These are AWESOME—gorgeous colors and great design. And thank you for making them free—so kind! #lovelovelove
    P.S. A goodreads icon would not go unappreciated, I know!!

  7. says

    Thank you so so so much for these! I used the silver glitter on my blog and it really spruced things up! it’s the best alternative to the blah tabs i used to have! :)

  8. Nathalie says

    I absolutely love these! I’m completely new at personalising my blog and now it looks so much better already. I chose the Red Glitter Red :) Thank you!!

  9. says

    Just when I was about to give up, I came across your site. Thank goodness!! Thank you so much. I wanted purple icons (that’s all) and I couldn’t find them anywhere. These are perfect. I will be sure to post about you on my blog. Now, wish me luck on installation. hehe! I am going to follow your source you listed and hope that is easier. Hugs!!!

  10. Jackie says

    Thank you sooo much! I’m redesigning my blog and these circle icons are just what I was looking for….Have a wonderful weekend!!!!

  11. Annie ( says

    Thanks for this! But where could I find a basic Instagram one (like the one you have– i.e., minus the yellow background or just the actual silhouette)? I’ve tried to look for it everywhere but to no avail :|. Thanks in advance!

  12. Jeni says

    THANK YOU SO MUCH! I just added the new icons to my blog! You are a life savior! I can’t believe I actually was able to do it!

  13. Dianne @ Skinny Seahorse says

    Just wanted to say thank you for the icons! I’m working on a new website for a shop I’m opening. I had to pay for the social media icons on my blog – As much as I love them, I didn’t want to do it again. You are my hero today. Thanks so much!

  14. Rebecca Clarke says

    I’ve just added some of your social media buttons to my blog and they look fab. Makes my blog seem that little bit more professional.

  15. Chelsea Dawn says

    Absolutely love these social media icons, thank you so much for sharing them! I am now using them on my blog! I like you on facebook, but also plan to post about these amazing freebies on my blog and hopefully you’ll get some new followers. Thanks again!

    Thank you so much for these, I don’t have a blog yet but it is on my to do list :) I did however use your icons on my business cards!!! Quick question – do you happen to take custom orders? I am desperate to keep all my colors consistant.

  17. says

    Thank you so much for these wonderful icons. I have been looking for a while now to find just the perfect ones. I was beginning to lose hope thinking I wouldn’t find any I like, until I came upon yours. Thank you so much! And what great ideas you have.

  18. says

    You are such a doll! Mahalo for doing this, I’m a polka dot girl who is a complete novice in all things graphic design. I’d like to make my own icons one day but needed something cool in the meantime. I love all the colors you offered, it was hard to decide (I was stuck between lemon zest, tangerine and tender shoots).

    Stop by and take a look, I’ll be adding you to my reader also, great blog.

  19. says

    I added the mouse grey ones to my blog. These are great little buttons and your instructions were perfect for a html phobic person like me. I did it in 10 minutes and they look great!!

    I LOVE your warm mint social media icons…and I WANT THEM IN A BAD WAY : ). However, when I attempt to upload to Photobucket, I get “invalid file type”. Do you have any idea what I’m doing wrong? I have a Mac. Do i have to use Photobucket? Is there another way? HELP!!!


    • says

      Hi Allie, I have a couple Blogger blogs too. How did you do your code? If you use the add html gadget and enter your code like this for each one, it should line them up for you. I did the width at 40 on mine and they are all in line. Hope this helps :)

    I almost bought a set of media icons on esty that were a perfect match to the pink used on my blog, I decided to keep looking when I found yours! I used “Shadow” because it’s a great netural and it matches the background of my blog. Thank you SOOOOOO much for this! Thanks to you, I’m able to put something adorable and perfect on my blog without having to spend any money, which is a godsend because I’m just not ready to do that yet. Thank you so much!

    Thanks very much for these lovely icons :) I’ve gone for Dusk Blue and they look so neat and pretty! Have added a little link to you in my About section, hope that’s ok!

  23. Alicia Rose says

    Hello! Thank you SO MUCH for posting these and the links to the tutorials. I finally have everything uploaded but I can’t seem to get the icons to a smaller size. I used your tip above but it’s not working. Any tips? I could email you the code I’m using if that helps. Thank you so much! This is such a huge help for a newbie blogger like myself!

  24. says

    Just wanted to say a big thanks for sharing your icons! They are really nice and simple ~which is exactly what I was looking for~ and I love that they come in some many different colors!!!
    I just applied them to my blog a few hours ago ~I did a mix and match with Confetti and Tender Shoots~ and I love the way they look!

    Thank you dearly!

    Carrie, thank you so much for these beautiful free icons. I just downloaded the bubble gum icons. I’m a NEW blogger. Still working on making my blog look pretty for all of potential future readers/followers. =D

  26. Jeanne says

    Thank you so much for making these!! I’ve been looking for an instagram icon for the longest time!
    I currently have violet on my blog, but with so many color options I’m having a hard time sticking with one! :)

  27. says

    Beautiful work, Carrie! I’m eager to put some of these pretty buttons on my site as I’m working on my redesign — I’ll be sure to point everyone in your direction and give credit where credit is due. Thank you for sharing your talent!

    After procrastinating for so long, I finally went ahead and downloaded these icons in black and added them to my blog. So excited! I gave you credit in the All about me & the blog page. Let me know if that’s okay or if you’d like me to put it somewhere else! :]

    Thanks so much for these cute icons and for being so freaking awesome!!

    Thanks a lot!!

    I want to sincerely thank you for the social icons. They are so classy, so simple, and include so many platforms! I used two colors together and then a third color on mouseover. Love the look. Blessings to you for your generous sharing.

  31. says

    This is awesome! I just added buttons to my blog for the first with the Emerald color and love it! I tried to tie in my header with a color I chose from my computer. Heard for me to tell if it is correct, on my screen. Are you willing to share the values of the color values for the emerald color?

    I just liked you on facebook! I don’t have twitter otherwise I’d do that too. Can’t wait until I have time tonight to look around your site some more.

    Carrie thank you so much for the icons! You are awesome to share these! I added them to my blog last night and started following you on bloglovin! :)

  33. Kristyn says

    Hi, Carrie! Thanks so much for the awesome social media icons. I’ve redesigned my blog today and have used your icons. I used Shadow and since there wasn’t another color that was just right I adjusted the color on one icon to match my blog’s theme–I hope that’s okay, I couldn’t find a TOS anywhere. Anyway, thanks again. This is the second time I’ve used your icons–the last time I used Apple and they were absolutely gorgeous!

    Hi, thanks for these! <3 They're exactly what I needed for my page!

    P.S. Please do consider making one for Lookbook! :')

    Thank you so much for the free icons! I used “nectarine” for my new website. It was very easy to set up, even for someone like me who is technologically “challenged”. I really appreciate you taking the time to post these and offer them!

    Carrie, this was SO helpful! Thank you so much! I now have the cutest black glitter social icons on my blog – all thanks to you. Much appreciated!


  40. Carrie says

    I snagged a couple of things and wanted to say thank you! This place rocks! I’ve been searching for nice, girly, cute, fun and pretty media icons for days now and no-one… I mean VERY FEW has goodreads included in their packages…. and the ones that do are boring! Aarrgghh!! So annoying!

    Anyway.. you had the perfect ones and the perfect colours to match my blog colours! I’m very pleased. I also snagged some nice book blogging thingies. I love this place!

    I tweeted for you and I will recommend this site to anyone that asks where to find great stuff for their blogs.

  41. says

    Thank you very much, Carrie. I am very selective when it comes to my bedroom, agenda or even blog design and, after searching a while for the perfect social media buttons, I found the ones that clicked better with the rest of the design of my blog here. They are simple, eye-opening AND glitter.

    I added the glitter red ones on my blog I hope you like the use that I gave them =)

    Thank you again

    I am still working on my site – so it’s all over the place right now…but I wanted to give you a BIG THANK YOU for being so generous and awesome. I am sure we all appreciate it :)

  49. Deborah says

    Thank you so much. This is so helpful when starting a blog and wanting to do things for yourself instead of pay somebody to do it.

    Hi Carrie,

    I’m new to blogging and would like to thank you.
    I grabbed your ice breaker icons and could fix them thanks to your tutorial.
    I grabbed your back to top button too, it’s so nice! – hope you don’t mind!

    Ciao ciao! :)

  51. says

    Thank you so much for your tutorial, and sharing these icons. After trying unsuccessfully for some time, I found your site and was able to get them up. Thank you!

  52. Angela Wilcox says

    thank you so much for this! I’ve been struggling for hours trying to figure out how to do these buttons and your video was exactly what I needed.

  53. says

    Carrie, this is so lovely. i’m having a problem, I did the command A on my mac before centering the icons in the post for wordpress, but it didn’t center them, some were left stacked in the center some stayed in their left alignment. What am I doing wrong?

    • says

      Hi Elli,

      I’m not sure what’s going on, I visited your blog and don’t see any posts published. Maybe instead of command A, you could select all of the icons with your cursor, or you could use the Visual tab in your post editor to select all of the icon code.

    I have just stumbled across the lovely blog and just HAD to downloaded these icons in Paloma. It’s the perfect colour for my blog as I expand and grow and constantly change and update the look of my blog. Thank you so much. Your video on how to add them was super easy to follow and made the whole process much easier than some other sites were suggesting.
    Definitely coming back to this lovely place often!

    Hello! I have tried doing this twice on blogger after watching the video several times to make sure i do it correctly.. When i try to copy all the codes at the end it is grey out and won’t let me? Not sure what i am doing wrong..

  56. says

    Thank you so much for this, I use your technique for everything on my blog and your icons are so useful as well. I’ve been using the confetti one, but I’m thinking of switching to African violet.
    Lots of love! x

  57. phyllis says

    The icon bar on the template I use looks great in edit/preview, but are blurry when published. I substituted your icons, and they look great! Thank you so much!
