Take your magic wand and click inside the square then go to selections-modify-expand by 3 and add a new layer open up a paper of choice I used paper 9 copy and paste it INTO the selection then move it down below the sqaure. Now you can copy and paste your tube in the square as a new layer then go to selections-invert and hit delete. Change the blend mode of the tube layer to soft light, duplicate it then duplicate it again and change the blend mode of that layer to screen. I used the clock element over the tube and changed the blend mode to soft light and duplicate it.

Add the tree element on each side of the window re-sizing them so they fit there nicely.

Next open up mushroom 1 element  re-size it so it fits nicely near the bottom left of the tag.  Do the same with the basket element mirror it though. Then add the squirrel on top of it re-sizing it so it fit nicely.

Open up the wheelbarrow element copy and paste it as a new layer mirror it then re-size it so it fits nicely arrange it to the right of your tag then add the rabbit on top of it again re-sizing so it fits there nicely.

Now go through and add a drop shadow to everything BUT the frame and the trees. I used H 1 V2 Opacity 60 Blur 4.00 Color Black.

On the window layer we're going to use Loka's Software - 3D Shadow  the settings that I used are shown in the screen-shot below.


Copy and paste your tube as a new layer arrange it to your liking and add the same drop shadow you used for the window layer.

Open up paper 7 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer and apply your mask then merge group. Arrange it to your liking then duplicate and mirror it.

In your font and color of choice add your name then go to adjust-add/remove noise-add noise-random and monochrome checked and the precentage at 36. Then add a gradient glow my settings shown below. Add the same drop shadow as earlier H 1 V2 Opacity 60 Blur 4.00 Color Black then change the blend mode to hard light.

Fonts of choice - I am using a pixel font for the copyright and Battlelines for the name.

Ready?
Let's get started!

Open up the template then hit Shift+ D this will open the template on a whole new canvas. Close the original template file.

On the rounded rectangle layer go to selections-select all-float-defloat add a new layer now use a gradient I used two different colors from my tag and made a background/foreground one then flood fill it. DO NOT deselect yet copy and paste your tube as a new layer arrange it to your liking on either side then go to selections-invert and hit delete, duplicate and change then blend mode to screen. Go to selections-invert to undo the invert then go to modify and expand by 3 then flood fill with a color of choice I used white and added some noise to it. Close off the original rounded rectangle layer. Add a drop shadow of H 2 V 2 Opacity 60 Blur 4.00 Color Black.

On the circle layer go to selections-select all-float-defloat now open up a paper of choice I used paper 16 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer arrange it to your liking then go to selections-invert and hit delete. Change the blend mode of this layer to Luminance. Again go back to selections and hit invert to undo it then go to modify and expand by 3 flood fill with a color of choice I used pink and add the same noise and drop shadow as above. Close off the original circle layer.

On the bottom and top round rectangles we're going to do the same thing go to selections-select all-float-defloat then open up a paper I used paper 21 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer then go to selections-invert and hit delete. Close off the original rectangle layers and add the same drop shadow as above.

Top and bottom rectangle layers selections-select all-float-defloat add a new layer and flood fill with a color of choice then I added some lines in it using blinds in PSP. Add the same drop shadow as you did earlier. Close off the original layers.

Repeat the above steps minus the blinds to the bottom and top square layers as well as the top and bottom circle layers.

Now we can decorate! YAY!

I put the splatter from the kit on the bottom and top circle layers that you flood filled with a different color.

Same as the Lick this word-art then added a fat gradient glow and the same drop shadow used all along this tutorial.

Flower 1 from the kit re-sized and added to the bottom right of the tag.

The Bat element near the top left of the tag of coursed re-sized so it fits there nicely.

Bow 3 re-size to fit nicely at the corner of the first rounded rectangle we worked with first.

The Cupcake re-sized and placed near the bottom left of the tag.

Now copy and paste your main tube as a new layer arrange and re-size to your liking then duplicate it and go to adjust-blur-gaussian blur set to 3 change the blend mode to soft light and lover the opacity to 32. Add the same drop shadow as earlier to the bottom tube.

Now in a font and color of choice add your name now go to selections-select all-float-defloat-modify-expand by 2 add a new layer and flood fill with a color of choice I used the same gradient as earlier then modify it again by 2 add a new layer and flood fill with the original color of the font arrange it to the bottom of the other font layers. Add your drop shadow same settings  to the bottom layer. You can add some noise to the middle layer if you like, its up to you. Then I changed the blend mode to Hardlight but this depends on where you place your name.

Finally add your copyright and license number if applicable save as png or jpeg whichever you prefer and we're done!

Open up a 700x700 canvas we can always re-size/crop later.
I like my tags BIG LOL.

Open up element 2 from the kit which should be a frame copy and paste it as a new layer onto your canvas. Take your magic wand and click inside the frame then go to selections-modify-expand by 4 now open up a paper of choice I used paper 6 copy and paste it as a new layer arrange it to your liking then go back up to selections-invert and hit delete move this layer below the frame. DO NOT deselect yet. Open up your tube mine came with a close up so I used that, mirror it then copy and paste it as a new layer above the paper layer and arrange it to your liking then hit delete. Gray scale your tube in the frame and change the blend mode to screen duplicate and change the blend mode to soft light.

Open element 40 from the kit which should be bubbles copy and paste them as a new layer under the frame over the top re-size and arrange them to your liking.

Now we can decorate a bit!

Open element 16 which is a puddle of water copy and paste it as a new layer re-size it a little and place it to the bottom right of your frame. Now open element 30 which is a swan copy and paste it as a new layer re-size it a little and mirror it. Arrange it so its in the puddle.

Open up element 64 which is a bunch of pillows copy and paste them as a new layer re-size a little and place them at the bottom left of your frame.

Open element 45 which is a bag of shells I believe copy and paste it as a new layer re-size and place at the bottom left of your frame behind the pillows you just put there.

Open up element 58 which is a bottle copy and paste it as a new layer re-size it to it fits nicely move it to the bottom left of your frame in front of your bag of shells but still behind the pillows.

Now we can copy and paste our tube as a new layer I arranged mine so it looked like she was sitting on the pillows. Duplicate your tube change the blend mode to soft light and then go to adjust-blur-gaussian blur set to 5 and give your bottom tube layer a drop shadow of V 2 H 2 Opacity 60  Blur 4.00 Color Black.

Add the same drop shadow as above to the frame, pillows, bag of shells, swan and butterfly in the tree.

Now add your name in your font and color of choice I used white then added some noise by going to adjust-add/remove noise-add noise-uniform checked as well as monochrome and at 36% then apply the same drop shadow as above.

Finally add your copyright and license number if applicable save as png or jpeg whichever you prefer and we're done!
