Ready?
Let's get started!

Open up a new canvas 700x700.

Open up frame 1 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer re-size it a little if you find it too big. Open up greenery 1 from the kit copy and paste it on top of the frame re-size it a little. Open up print 3 element from the kit copy and paste it below the frame layer. Take your magic wand and click inside the frame then go to selections-modify-expand by 3 add a new layer then copy and paste the paper INTO the selection. Select none.

Open up the bunny beads on string element copy and paste it as a new layer re-size it so it fits nicely and rotate it 90 degrees to the left and arrange it so that side on the frame.

Now open up the lace element from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer re-size it so it fits nicely and move it below the basket layer. Keep re-sizing it so it looks like the lace is in the basket like a decoration. Open up egg 1, 2 and 3 copy and paste them as new layers re-size them so they fit in the basket move each of them below the basket layer arrange them so they show a bit outside the top part of the basket. Do the same with carrot 1 and two you can rotate them to your liking and place them where you'd like.  I also used the bunny shape element.

Open up flower 4 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer now we're going to re-size it so it fits on the basket like a decoration. Then open up bow 4 do the same but place it near the middle of the flower. Merge together then duplicate arrange this layer on the opposite side.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer arrange and re-size to your liking. Duplicate it then change the blend mode to soft light then go to adjust-blur-gaussian blur set to 3. Add a drop shadow of H 0 V 0 Opacity 50 Blur 5.00 Color Black to the BOTTOM tube layer.

Now in a font and color of choice add your name I added some noise by going to adjust-add/remove noise-add noise then play with your settings to get something you like. I applied a gradient glow the settings that I used are shown in the screen-shot below. Now apply the same drop shadow you used earlier.

Eye Candy 400 - Gradient Glow

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

Ready?
Let's get started!

Open up a new canvas 700x700.

Open up frame 6 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer re-size it if you need to. Now take your magic wand and click inside each of the squares once they're all selected go to selections-modify-expand by 3 now add a new layer then open up paper 1 from the kit copy and paste it INTO the selections. Select none and move it below the frame layer. Still on the paper layer open up the clocks element from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer re-size it so it fits nicely then change the blend mode to darken and duplicate it. Open up the flower scatter from the kit copy and paste it over the clocks again re-sizing it so it fits nicely. You can add a drop shadow to your frame I used
H 1
V 1
Opacity 50
Blur 5.00
Color Black

Now we can copy and paste your tube as a new layer. If your tube is like mine which isn't a full tube then you can arrange it to where you like and for mine I made it look like she was partly in the frame. To do this duplicate your tube and move one below the frame then use your eraser tool to erase on the TOP tube layer where you want it to look like shes inside. Add the same drop shadow to the BOTTOM tube layer.

Open up the tree element from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer re-size it so it fits there nicely. Duplicate and mirror it arrange it on the other side.

Copy and paste the flower patch near the bottom right of the frame add the same drop shadow as earlier.

Copy and paste the butterflies2 element re-size them so they fit nicely move this below the flower patch.

Open up the greenery element from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer again re-sizing so it fits nicely.  Move it below the tree layers and on the side of the frame. Duplicate and mirror arrange it on the other side of the frame.

I placed the bunny near the bottom left by the flower patch re-sizing it so it fit there nicely and adding the same drop shadow as earlier. I did the same with the bird house but its on the left of the tag.

Open up frame 5 from the kit copy and paste it as a new layer arrange it where you'd like so it will show near the top part of the tag then arrange it so its under the frame. Duplicate and mirror until it shows under the whole frame then merge them together. Add the same drop shadow.

Now in a font and color of choice add your name then apply a fat gradient glow I used white. Settings I used shown in the screen-shot below. Then again add the same drop shadow.




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

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and found it easy to follow.

I would LOVE to see your results to any tutorials that you do, you can email results to me or post them on my page on face-book if you have a face-book account.

Xero - Fritilary

Template by Kandi Kissez and Dees'sign depot which you can download HERE.
Leave some love when you download!

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

Ready?
Let's get started!

Firstly Shift+D to duplicate the whole template then close out the original. Close off the copyright layer.

On the gold glitter arch layer add Xero Fritilary settings of your choice I just hit random until I got something that I liked. Then go to adjust-add/remove noise-add noise- random checked, Monochrome checked and percentage at 36%.

On the orange shape layer go to selections-select all-float-defloat add a new layer and flood fill with a color or gradient of choice. Then go to modify expand by 2 and copy and paste paper  2 from the kit then go to selections-invert and hit delete. Close off the original shape layer then move the paper layer below the gradient and change the blend mode of the gradient layer to Hard light.

On the center green shape go to selections-select all-float-defloat now copy and paste your tube as a new layer and do that until it fills up that shape. Then go to selections-invert and hit delete on each layer of tubes you used. Merge them together and colorize them so they're gray. Change the blend mode to soft light lower the opacity to about 82. Duplicate and change that layer to screen lower the opacity to 40.  Copy and paste the rainbow element in the shape re-size so it fits nicely then change the blend mode to soft light.

Repeat the same steps for the green glitter frame that you did for the gold glitter arch.

On the Shamrocks layer add Xero Fritilary again a setting of your choice.

On the Gonna Catch Me word-art add some noise like you did earlier then a drop shadow of
H 1
V 1
Opacity 50
Blur 5.00
Color Black

Now from the kit open up the pot of gold copy and paste it as a new layer re-size so it fits nicely and move it to the left of the tag add the same drop shadow as you used above.

Open up the stitched clover copy and paste it as a new layer move it so its on the pot of gold but re-size it so it fits there nicely and arrange it to your liking. Then change the blend mode to soft light.

Open up the hat copy and paste it as a new layer re-size it so it fits nicely mirror it and arrange it so it sits on top of the pot of gold. Add the same drop shadow.

Open up clover leaf 1 element copy and paste it as a new layer mirror it and re-size it so it fits nicely at the bottom right of the tag.

I also added print 1 and 2 under the whole template. Print 2 I arranged so it showed at the top then duplicated it and arranged so it showed at the bottom.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer then duplicate it change the blend mode to soft light then go to adjust-blur-gaussian blur set to 3. Add the same drop shadow you used throughout the tutorial to the bottom tube layer.

Now in a font and color of choice type out your name then convert to raster. Then go to selections-select all-float-defloat-modify-expand by 2 add a new layer and flood fill with a color of choice. Move that layer below the original text layer and add some noise and a drop shadow. Same settings for both used in the tutorial.

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