Notice and TOU

Most of my tutorials are written using PTU art and scrapkits! That however should not stop you from trying them. I understand not everyone can buy scrapkits and/or art but there are tons of FTU artist and freebie scrapkits that you can use. I only write tutorials as a guide. What YOU do with them is up to your imagination
All Tutorials have been written in PSP 8. They are just a guideline on how to make a tag look a certain way and do not have to be followed word for word!
If you are a group manager please feel free to link to my tutorials but if you don't mind could you leave me a link to your group in my chatbox or you can email me
I love to see what people make using my tuts
Thank you.

This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of PSP. It was written using PSP 8 but can be done using other versions

Image of Choice
*I am using the gorgeous artwork of Zindy S.D. Nielsen. You must have a license to use the same work*

Broken PTU Scrap kit
*This is a gorgeous PTU kit by Laura's Designs. You can find this kit at Taggers Delight*

2011 Template 5
*This template was created by me and can be downloaded HERE*

Font of Choice
*I am using P22 Petemoss*

Lets Get Started:
1). Open all supplies
Shift + D to duplicate the template
Close the original
Delete the copyright layer on the duplicate

2). Make the Rectangle layer active
Select All
Copy and paste your paper of choice
Select None
*Do these steps for SS 1 and SS 2. You can also do this for the Large Circle layer but it isn't really necessary unless you are using a tube instead of an image*

3). Make your Large Circle layer active
Select All
Copy and Paste your image of choice
Select None

4). Duplicate your image layer
On the duplicate add a Gaussian Blur of 5.00
Change the blend mode to Soft Light
*On the ORIGINAL image layer I applied the Xero~Porcelin plugin. I just played around with the settings until I liked the results. I thine changed the opacity on the blurred layer to around 85*

5). Add any embellishments you would like from the kit to make the tag your own

6). Resize the tag now if you are going to

7). Add all copyright information and any license information needed

8). Add your name
