Let's Begin

1. Open a new canvas 600 x 600 white background

2. From the Sable Blush Scrap Kit open up the WWDCallaLilies2, "edit", "copy" then "edit", "paste as a new layer" on to your new canvas, then reduce size to 85% by going to "Image" , "Resize" "85%" all layers UNCHECKED and with your mover tool move over to the left hand side of your canvas.

4.     From the Sable Blush Scrap Kit open up the WWDBlossom2, "edit", "copy" then "edit", "paste as a new layer" on to your canvas, then reduce size to 65% by going to "Image" , "Resize" "65%" all layers UNCHECKED. With your move tool move it over on top of your callalilies then on your layer palette move this layer INBETWEEN your 2 callalillie layers
(see my print screen below for what mine looks like)


5.  From the Sable Blush Scrap Kit open up the WWDSatinBow1, "edit", "copy" then "edit", "paste as a new layer" on to your canvas, then reduce size to 45% by going to "Image" , "Resize" "45%" all layers UNCHECKED. With your move tool move it to the bottom of the stems of your flowers.

6.  From the Sable Blush Scrap Kit open up the WWDSatinBow4, "edit", "copy" then "edit", "paste as a new layer" on to your canvas, then reduce size to 40% by going to "Image" , "Resize" "40%" all layers UNCHECKED. With your move tool move it to the bottom of the stems of your flowers on top of your red satin bow.

(see my print screen below for what mine looks like)


7.  From the Sable Blush Scrap Kit open up the WWDFlowerSpray1, "edit", "copy" then "edit", "paste as a new layer" on to your canvas, then reduce size to 45% by going to "Image" , "Resize" "45%" all layers UNCHECKED. With your move tool move it over on top of your bows.

8.  Close off your bottom white layer by clicking on the eye beside it on your layer's palette.  Right click on any other layer and "merge visible" (this will merge ALL your layers on to one layer except for you bottom white layer).  Open back up the visibility on your bottom white layer by clicking on the eye.

9.  From the Sable Blush Scrap Kit open up the WWDFrame1 , "edit", "copy" then "edit", "paste as a new layer" on to your canvas, then reduce size to 55% by going to "Image" , "Resize" "55%" all layers UNCHECKED. On your layer palette move this layer BELOW your merged flower layer and with your mover tool move it over to the left beside your flowers and part of the frame on the left hand side tucked under your flowers. 
(see my print screen below for what mine looks like)


10. Take your magic wand tool and click inside the frame until you have marching ants
The best settings I found to do this with are as follows;
(see print screen below)
Mode: Add(shift), Match mode: RGB Value, Tolerance: 102, Contiguous checked, Feather: 0, Anti-alias checked, Inside

11. 
"Selections", "Modify", "Expand" and choose "5"

12.  Open a paper of choice, I chose WWDPaper11"Edit", "Copy" then back to your main canvas and "edit", "paste as a new layer".  "Selections" "Invert" (make sure you're on your paper layer) and hit your "delete" key on your keyboard.  *Selections*, "select none" On you layers palette move your paper layer UNDER your frame layer.

13.  Right click on your frame layer and "merge down" (what you're doing is merging your paper layer and your frame layer on to one.
(see print screen below for what mine looks like)


14.  From the Sable Blush Scrap Kit open up the WWDCushion2 , "edit", "copy" then "edit", "paste as a new layer" on to your canvas, then reduce size to 80% by going to "Image" , "Resize" "80%" all layers UNCHECKED. Move it over to the right lower hand side of your frame.

15.  Take your tube of choice and paste it on to your canvas.  I moved my tube so it looked like she was sitting on the cushion.

16.  From the Sable Blush Scrap Kit open up the WWDSWrap1, "edit", "copy" then "edit", "paste as a new layer" on to your canvas, then reduce size to 45% by going to "Image" , "Resize" "45%" all layers UNCHECKED.
(see print screen below for where I placed my bow)


17.  Over on your layers palette reduce the opacity of that layer down so you can see through to the frame layer underneath and start to erase either end of the bow to make it look like it's coming from the inside of the frame (you don't want any of the bow hanging over the edges of your frame).
You can then take it one step further and erase parts of the bow that go over your tube to make it look like it's intertwining with your tube.  Once done you can put the opacity of your layer back up to 100%.  Remember you can always "undo" any step you've done if you don't like the result then try again.

18.  Copy and paste your word art on to your canvas and place it where you'd like.  A tip for you.  You will notice mine is colorized.  I usually turn my wordart into a "custom brush" by going to "File", "Export", "Custom Brush".  Name it what you would like then go to your brush tool, find your newly created custom brush now you can make your word art whatever color you would like. Give it a drop shadow of your choice.
(see my print screen below for what I have now)


19. 
Add the artist copyright information then when all done you can save it as a jpg or close off your white bottom layer by clicking on the eye on the layer palette and save your tag as a "png" file to give it a transparent background.

If you'd like to do the animation like I have in my sample tag continue with the steps below



Animation

Duplicate your frame layer 2 times so you have a total of 3 frame layers. On you layers palette close off the visibility of your top 2 layers by clicking on the eye to the left of the layer.
(see my print screen below for what my layer palette looks like with my 3 frame layers)


Take your magic wand tool (use the same settings as we did previously) and pick a color you'd like to use.  Start from the top left side of the frame and click INSIDE the first heart.  Count that as "1", then count 2, 3, then click on the 4th heart (or restart at 1) and
click inside that one.  Count that as "1" again, count 2, 3 then click on the next one.  I know this sounds confusing so I've print screened below to hopefully make it easier to understand.


*  Once you've got all the hearts you want selected go to "Selections", "modify", "expand" and pick
"1" pixel

*  Select you flood fill tool and click inside one of the hearts that are selected and it should flood fill all the hearts you selected
"Selections", "Select None"

*  Open up the visibility
of your second duplicated frame layer and click on it to make it active on your layers palette.  Pick a different color you'd like to use then with your magic wand tool starting with the heart to the right of the first one you filled (on your first layer) which was #2 click on that and consider that now #1. Count 2 then 3 then click on the next one.  (what you should have is all the hearts to the right of you're already filled hearts on layer one selected)
(see print screen below for some help)

*  Once you've got all the hearts you want selected go to "Selections", "modify", "expand" and pick
"1" pixel

*  Select you flood fill tool and click inside one of the hearts that are selected and it should flood fill all the hearts you selected "Selections", "Select None

*  Open up the visibility of your third duplicated frame layer and click on it to make it active on your layers palette.  Pick a different color you'd like to use then with your magic wand tool starting with the heart to the right of the second one you filled (on your second layer)  click on that and consider that now #1. Count 2 then 3 then click on the next one.  (what you should have is all the hearts to the right of you're already filled hearts on layer two selected)
(see print screen below for some help)


*  Once you've got all the hearts you want selected go to "Selections", "modify", "expand" and pick
"1" pixel

*  Select you flood fill tool and click inside one of the hearts that are selected and it should flood fill all the hearts you selected
"Selections", "Select None

(see print screen below for what all my hearts filled look like)


*Now close off the visibility of your duplicated frame layers 2 & 3

*Open up animation shop

*  In PSP "Edit", "Copy Special", "Copy Merged"
* Go to Animation Shop and "Edit", "Paste" "New animation"

*Back to PSP and close visibility of your first frame layer open up the visibility of your 2nd frame layer

*  In PSP "Edit", "Copy Special", "Copy Merged"
* Go to Animation Shop and "Edit", "Paste" "After Current Frame"

*Back to PSP and close visibility of your second frame layer open up the visibility of your 3rd frame layer

*  In PSP "Edit", "Copy Special", "Copy Merged"
* Go to Animation Shop and "Edit", "Paste" "After Current Frame"
(you should now have 3 frames see my print screen below)


* In Animation shop "Edit", "Select All"

"Animation", "Frame Properties" and in the display time choose "15"


* You can now "Save As" your tag as a gif file and

YOU'RE ALL DONE!!!

(if you made it through the animation part of this tutorial you just learned how to make a basic blinkie)
