I write tut's as a guide line to make tags. I'm in no way saying mine is the right way, just the way I make a tag.
There are many ways to do all tags. I am just sharing my view of making the tag's I make... If you have a better way of doing a certain step, then by all means use your way. After all it is your tag centered around my tut... I would appreciate an occasional comment telling me what you think of the Tag, Tut, Kit, ect... This way I know what everyone likes and can improve... Thanks for understanding...

All I want

All I want for Christmas

All I want for Christmas
Is a Doggie !

This tutorial is written in Paint Shop Pro 9, but any version should work.
It is written out of my own thoughts’ never meant to copy/look like yours…

I am using the lovely artwork
Of Kajenna
She currently sells at Pics For Design

I am using a Matching scrap kit by
Whisper In The Wind
She sells at many stores

You can find them all on her blog

I am also using a FTU Mask by Dee
You can find all of her free things on her

When you work with a full size tube, you will need to make sure you have all the layers you want to use on one layer, I always copy and paste the merged as a new image, make a 600 pixels in height And then a close up, since this is just a puppy I’ll only make the full size one, and re-size by % in the tutorial, I am using the red hat, on the dog…

Open a 650x650 size tag, you can re-size it later
 CL 2 c/p re-size by 65% leave in the middle
E28 c/p pull to the top of frame, use your selection tool and crop just the part that is on top of the frame, delete the rest of the element…
87 c/p re-size by 50% pull to the far right hand side of tag,
Then add this drop shadow
Vertical 5
Horizontal 3
Opacity 50
Blur 5
Color Black

E 11 c/p re-size by 75% pull to the lower part of the tree…
E17 c/p re-size by 25% pull to the lower left hand edge of your tag…
Take the sized version of the dog, make it 600 Pixels on height, then paste as a new layer, then re-sizes it by 65% pull it to where it is right in front of the tree…
E16 c/p re-size by 75% pull to the bottom of the dog…
E31 c/p re-size by 60% pull to the far left hand side of your frame…
E15 c/p re-size by 20% pull to the left hand side of doggie…
E14 c/p re-size by 20% pull to the right hand edge of doggie…
E 53 c/p re-size by 20% leave in the middle of tag, but pull down to below the dog…
E93 c/p re-size by 25% pull to the upper right hand corner of your tag…
Go down to the very bottom layer Open paper3 using your rectangle tool draw this behind the frame, we will flood fill very bottom layer with paper 5
Apply the mask , then merge into one layer and up-size it by 105% just so it show’s a bit more on the top behind the tag…

Now go back up to the top layer, and make a new raster layer so you can add your credit for tube, and kit maker if they require this,
Always make sure you make a tag for the kit maker and mask/template maker so they know your using there things.. It will make them offer more freebies too...

Here is a tag for the artist Kit maker and Mask maker

 2nd tag for the artist with a different kit
