Font Used :

Sweetheart Script
Size : 100 Pixels

Elements Used :


(**Please note - I use 3 phrases/effects often through out my tutorials, so instead of explain each of them every time I use them I will post here how to do each effect.)

To Sharpen - Go to Adjust , click Sharpness, then click Sharpen.

To Apply A Drop Shadow  - Go to Effects, click 3D Effects then click Drop Shadow, You can either use my settings below or your own, its up to you :-)

To Re-size an element in PSP - Go to Image & click Re-size (OR you can press and hold your Shift key on your keyboard and then tap your S key 1 time. This too will bring up your re-size menu)



Lets Begin :

Start by opening a new 800 X 650 transparent canvas, (or you can use a white background, your preference) Don't worry we will crop it later.

Open Frame 3, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas ,then re-size it to 75%.
Now using your move tool, position your frame so that it is in the center of your canvas.

Now activate your magic wand tool, click inside your frame, now go to Selections and click Modify, then click Expand from the slide out menu.
Now set your number of pixels to 5 and click Ok.

Now open your SkyBg, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas ,now re-size it to 80%. Position it with your move tool to where you want, or so that whatever part you want to be in your frame opening is in there.
Then go to Selections and click Invert, then press your Delete key on your keyboard 1 time.
In your layers pallet move your SkyBg layer below your frame layer.

Now open your tube of choice, I used the half tube that came with my tube for this part, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas ,then re-size it to 75% (the re-size on this part will depend on which tube you use) Now using your move tool, position your tube so that it is up against the left side of your frame.
Now press your Delete key on your keyboard 1 time.
Go to Selections & click Select None.

Apply a drop shadow to your frame layer.

Now in your layers pallet, right click on your tube layer, click Duplicate, now go to Adjust, click Blur, then click Gaussian Blur from the slide out menu set to 3.00 and click ok.
Now change your Blend Mode to Overlay.
On your bottom tube layer change the Blend Mode to Luminance (L). Apply a drop shadow to the bottom tube layer only!
Now open your full size tube, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas , go to Image and click Mirror. Now re-size your tube to 65%. Again this will depend on the tube you use, adjust your size as needed.

Now position your tube to the lower right corner of your frame.
In your layers pallet, right click on your full tube layer, click Duplicate, then go to Adjust, click Blur, then click Gaussian Blur, and set to 3.00 then click Ok.
Now change your Blend Mode to Overlay.
Now apply a drop shadow to your bottom full tube layer only!

Now in your layers pallet, click on the last layer in your layers pallet, Now open your P8, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas.
Now go to Layers and click Load/Save Mask, then click Load Mask From Disk, find your mask of choice and click Load.
Now in your layers pallet, right click on your mask layer, click Merge, then from the slide out menu click Merge Group.
Now re-size your mask to 85%. (This too will depend on which mask you used, so adjust your size as you need too.)

Now lets start adding some elements :

Open your Cloud element, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas ,then re-size it to 85%. Using your move tool position your Cloud element to the lower right corner of your frame under your full size tube.
In your layers pallet move your Cloud layer below BOTH of your full size tube layers.
Now Sharpen & apply a drop shadow to your cloud element.

Now open your Flowers element, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas, then re-size it to 80%. Now using your move tool again move your Flower element to the upper left corner of your Frame.
Sharpen & apply a drop shadow.
Now in your layers pallet, right click on your Flower layer and click Duplicate, then go to Image and click Mirror. Now you should have another Flower element on the upper right corner of your frame.

Now open your Ribbon3 element, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas ,then re-size it to 70%. Using your move tool position your Ribbon3 element to the lower left corner of your frame.
Sharpen & apply a drop shadow.

Now open your Heart element, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas, then re-size it to 35%. Use your move tool and move your Heart element to the upper left corner of your frame and position it in the middle of the big flower in your flower element. Now sharpen & apply a drop shadow.
Go to your layers pallet, right click on your Heart layer, then go to Image and click Mirror. Now your duplicated heart should be in the center of your big flower of your flowers element.

Now open your Ribbon Bow element, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas, then re-size it to 70%. Now position your Ribbon Bow using your move tool to the upper right corner of your frame.
Sharpen & apply a drop shadow.
Go to your layers pallet and right click on your Ribbon Bow layer, then click Duplicate. Now go to Image and click Mirror. Now you should have your duplicated Ribbon Bow element on the left upper corner of your frame as well.

Open your Butterfly element, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas ,then re-size it to 30%. Go to Image and click Free Rotate, set to Right 30.00 and click Ok.
Now Sharpen & apply a drop shadow.
Use your move tool and position your butterfly element where you would like it.

Now go to your layers pallet and duplicate your butterfly layer, go to Image and click Mirror. Now position your duplicated butterfly as desired.

Now open your Dove element, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas ,then re-size it to 65%. Now go to Image, click Mirror. Now using your move tool, move your Dove element to the lower left corner of your frame.
Now Sharpen & apply a drop shadow to your Dove element.

Now lets open your Sparkles, copy & paste them as a new layer onto your canvas ,then use your move tool to position your sparkles to the upper right corner of your frame. Now sharpen your sparkles.
Go to your layers pallet, right click on your sparkles layer and then go to Image and click Mirror.
Now you should have sparkles on both sides of your frame.
Use your move tool to adjust the position of your sparkles if you need to.

Now open your Stars , copy & paste them as a new layer onto your canvas ,then re-size them to 30%. Use your move tool and move them down to the lower left corner of your frame. Then go to your layers pallet and right click on your stars layer, then go to Image and click Mirror. Now move your duplicated stars element where you want them.

Now you will add your name, copyright & credit information.

Once you have your name added, you can add a Gradient Glow, so go to Effects, click Plug-ins, then find your Eye Candy 5 Impact - Click on Gradient Glow. You can either use my settings below or your own,



Click Ok.

Now apply a  drop shadow to your name.


Now in your layers pallet, once you have all of your info and elements added, right click on any layer and then click Merge, then click Merge Visible from the slide out menu.
Now crop your tag, make sure you don't crop to close to your elements, copyright info, name, or drop shadows. IF you do make a mistake just click your undo button until you are back to where you were before the mistakes were made :-)

Now go to Adjust, click Sharpness then click Sharpen.

Now open your Animation Shop, and open your animation of choice.
For mine it has 2 frames, so I would use my Ctrl & A key to select all my frames at once. (If yours has more than two frames you will still follow the same method of selected all your frames, so now matter how many frames you have you would still selected them all by pressing and holding your Ctrl key & then pressing your A key one time :-)

Now go back to your PSP, and go to Edit, click Copy
Now go back to your Animation Shop, right click on your grey canvas area then click Paste As New Animation.
Now use your Ctrl & L key to duplicate your frame. (Now you should have 2 frames of your tag & 2 frames of your animation.)
Now you want to select both of your tag frames by pressing your Ctrl & A key 1 time.
Now go to your animation, right click inside frame 1 of your animation, click Copy.
Now go to your tag frame 1 and right click and then click Paste Into Selected Frame, (and because we have both frames selected it will post your animation into both frames, which is what we want.)
Now you will see your animation, and a blue circle when you move your mouse, do NOT left click yet, move your mouse until you have your animation where you want to put it, I put mine in the eye of my biggest tube then when its where you want it, left click and that will place it onto your tag.
Now still in your tag frame, right click again and click Paste, then click Into Selected Frame.Now position your animation in the other eye of your biggest tube. Then left click to have it placed.
Now right click again, click Paste then click Into Selected Frame. This time I placed my animation into the eye of my dove. So move your animation over and place it right where the eye of the dove is, then left click.

Now you want to view your animation,
If you are happy with your animation, all you have left to do is re-size your tag,
so press and hold your Shift key & tap your S key one time and your re-size menu will open. Set it to pixels and the size that you want. (My size shown below is what I use for my blog display. You by no means have to have it that big or that small, the choice is always yours and what your groups/forums preference is on the size you can use :-)

Click Ok
Now save as a GIF file!

Thank-You for trying my tutorial, I hope you have enjoyed it!
As always I would love to see what you make using this or any of my tutorials, so please feel free to send me an email with a copy of your tag!
