Feel free to use my tutorial in any way you would like. Although it is my ideas that will guide you, please feel free to do whatever you choose with it!

This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of PSP. I used PSP X4 to create this tag.

Needed supplies:

Scrap Kit of choice or the one I am using called AM Artist Series 4. This kit is by Cora at PMTw/S and can be purchased at Pimp my tags with Scraps Store.

This kit I purchased as a group of 6! They are normally $1.50, I purchased them all in one kit for $5.00! They are cute, and match specific artists tubes exactly so no thinking of what tube to use!

This kit was inspired from Amy Matthews tube # 16-2

Tube: Artwork © Amy Matthews. In order to use the image in this tutorial you MUST purchase it from CDO.

Plugins: If so desired I used EyeCandy 6: Gradient Glow.

Open all supplies needed for this tutorial. 600x600 tag.

Add pd12-frame-02, with pd12-pp-04 as the paper.
Below the frame and paper layer add the following:
pd12-print-02 to the bottom centered.

Add your tube to the frame and move to where you want it under the frame on the left. Using your eraser tool, erase portions on the top tube that are sticking out that you don't want shown. Drop shadow tubes 1, 1, 80, 5.

I added the following elements starting just above the frame. Resize as necessary and see tag for exact placement:
pd12-flower-01 to the top right on the frame.
pd12-heart-01 to the bottom left side on the frame.
pd12-cherries to the bottom right side on the frame.
pd12-ribbon-02 to the top left side of the frame.

Add any elements of your choice. Drop shadow elements of choice. Merge any layers you choose together.

Add your text of choice, I used Gentle Redhead font. Noise 74. Add 1.0 white gradient glow and then add a regular drop shadow.

Resize tag if desired. Add your copyright at this time.

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial! Please feel free to send me your results!
