Here is what we will be making :

**Please keep in mind that all my tutorials are made from my own Ditzy noggin, any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental**


Supplies Needed :
PaintShop Pro X2 (Any version should work)
Tube Of Choice : I used a beautiful tube from Lia You can see her work HERE.
Scapkit Of Choice or the one I used called Candy Girl By Tammy @ Tammy's Scraps
Eye Candy 5>Impact (Optional)

Elements Used From Candy Girl Kit :

Element 45, 106,74,33,8,5,1,2,75,42,41,119,40,& 73
Papers Used : Paper 7 & Paper 18

Lets Begin :

Open a new image size 800x650 (Don't worry we will crop it later)

Open Element, 45, Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas, re-size it to 50%, go to Image, click Free Rotate, set to Left 20.00, click ok. 
Now go to your layers pallet, make sure you are on your Element 45 layer, right click, click Duplicate, then go to Image, & click Mirror.

Now using your move tool and position them so the bottom inside corners are touching.

Now in your layers pallet again, right click on your left side frame, then get your Magic Wand tool, and click inside the left frame. Then go to Selections, click Modify, then click Expand, and set the setting to 4.

Now open your Paper 7, Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas, go to Selections, click Invert, then press delete on your keyboard 1 time.

Now move your paper layer below your left sided frame.

(Keep frame selected)


Now Open your tube of choice, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas, use your move tool and position it where your left frame is, try to center it up in the frame. Once you have it where you want it, go to Selections, and click Invert. Then press your Delete key on your keyboard 1 time.
Now you can press Ctrl & D on your keyboard to deselect your frame.

(Make sure your paper layer is below your frame layer & make sure your tube layer is above your paper layer but below your frame layer.)
Now on your tube layer, right click , click duplicate, then go to Adjust, click Blur, then click Gaussian Blur on the slide out menu,  set your settings to 3.00. Then on your duplicated layer still, change your blend mode to Overlay.
Then on your original tube layer , change your blend mode to Luminance (Legacy)
Now add a drop shadow to your original tube layer. (To add a drop shadow go to Effects , click 3D, then click Add Drop Shadow)

Now you will want to follow the exact same steps for your right sided frame. (The only change I made was before I copied & pasted my tube, I went to Image & clicked Mirror. So it made her look like she was turning the other way.)

Now open your main tube (which can be the same one you just used if you wish, which is what I did) copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas, re-size it to 65% (if you are using the same tube, if you are using something different re-size accordingly)

Now in your layers pallet, on your main tube layer, right click on it, click duplicate then go to Adjust, click on Blur, then click Gaussian Blur on the slide out menu. Set your setting to 3.00, and then in your layers pallet change your blend mond to Overlay, and give the original tube layer a drop shadow.

Ok, now lets open Element 119, copy & paste it as a new layer, and position it in your layers pallet so that it is behind your little animal element , your lollipop layers, your candy layers , also your heart & candy stick layers. You want it behind all of those layers. Once you have it there, go to Adjust, click Sharpness, then click Sharpen.

Once you have your layer set to the 3rd from the bottom, right click on it, then click Duplicate. 
Now on the same layer, go to Image, then click Mirror.
Use your move tool to position it where you want it.

Now open your Element 73, Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas, Re-size it to 50%. Position this element in front of your tag/main tube.

Now back to your layers pallet, duplicate it one more time. This time use your move tool and position the 3rd layer where you would like it. I put mine in the lower middle.


Now you are ready to add your name, and your copyright information & any credits you need to add.
Once you have your name and copyright/credit information on your tag, go to your layers pallet, and activate your name layer (remember to activate means to click on it)  Right click on your name layer, and click Convert To Raster Layer.
Then go to Effects, scroll down to Plug-ins, then find your Eye Candy 5 Impact, then click Gradient Glow. Set your settings how you would like them, then click ok. Now add a drop shadow to your name.

Once you have your drop shadow added, click on your Magic Wand tool, now making sure you are still on your name layer in your layers pallet, use your Magic Wand to click inside each letter in the name you used. Once all letters are selected, go to Effects, Click on 3D, then on the slide out menu click on Inner Bevel. You can set your settings any way you would like, or you can follow mine below if it helps :-)


Once you have your Inner Bevel done click Ok, Then all we have left to do is crop our tag, so get your crop tool, and crop off any access canvas that we did not use, be sure not to crop it to close to your tag, or mask.

Once you have your tag cropped, go to your layers pallet, right click on any layer and then click Merge Visible.
Now if you want to re-size your tag, now is the time to do it, so to re-size you can do it one of two ways, you can either go to Image, click on Re-size, and set it to Pixels and then type in the size you want then click ok. Or you can save yourself a couple of clicks and on your keyboard push your shift key & s key and it will bring up your Re-size screen for you set your size and click Ok.

Once you have re-sized your tag, I like to do one more sharpen on my tags, so if you would like to go to Adjust, click Sharpness then click Sharpen.

Now you are all set to save your completed tag.

Save as png!!
