This tutorial assumes a basic working knowledge of PSP. I use X5 but any version will do.

This tut uses a FTU scrap kit from BLT Dezignz called Trim-a-Way, and is available HERE.

Supplies are HERE

Put the mask in your Masks folder
Open a new image 600 x 600 and flood fill with white
You can resize it later if you wish
Open paper 5, resize to 600 x 600, copy and close
Paste as new layer
Load your mask and then merge group
Open frame 1, resize to 400 width, copy and close
Paste as new layer and move up and to the left a bit
Open your Alex Prihodko tube, close the layers you don't want and then merge visible
Resize to about 500 width, copy and close
Paste as new layer and move her head under the frame layer, then erase any parts outside the frame
Reduce the opacity of this layer to 40%
Open the pngglobe, copy and close
On the frame layer, click inside the frame with your magic wand
Selections, modify, expand 5
New raster layer
Paste into selection
Deslect
Move this below the frame layer
Click your group layer to activate it
Open the leaves, resize to about 400 width
Copy and close, then paste as new layer and move up
Erase any parts that show inside the frame
I used the button as an ornament - just resize and position as you like, again erasing any that show inside the frame
Click your frame layer to activate it
Open the beads, resize to about 250 width, copy and close
Paste as new layer and move to the top of the frame
In front of the frame, I added some ornaments, a gift, a bow, some ribbon and the swirl - all resized
Copy the Alex Prihodko tube again, and paste as new layer
Add the drop shadows to your elements - I used 3, 3, 20, 5, black
If you're going to resize, do that now before adding text
Add the copyright info and license number for your Alex Prihodko tube
For my text, I used Always Black, #385454
Give your text a small drop shadow - I used 2, 2, 20, 2, black
Save as a JPG file and you have a new tag - hope you like it!
