Berry Sweet




In this tutorial I used the art of Robert Alvarado.
You need a license to use Robert’s art,
available here.

I used a beautiful summery scrapkit called “Berry Sweet” by
You can get the kit here.
Thank you Sarah!

You will also need a mask, I used Weescotslass’s mask 82, here.

Font of choice.


Remember to sharpen up those elements after resizing/rotating as otherwise they will be a little blurry, check out my Tips and Tricks page for more info.

I used a drop shadow throughout of vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 70, blur 5.



Open a new transparent canvas 600 by 600 pixels and flood fill with white.

Open one of the papers and copy, I used sb_pmt_berry-sweet_pp3.  Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.

Open sb_pmt_berry-sweet_frame 2 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 70%.

Open another of the papers and copy, this time I used sb_pmt_berry-sweet_pp1.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 10, make a new layer below the frame and paste the paper into the selection, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame and merge it down onto the paper layer.

Open sb_pmt_berry-sweet_print 1 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 80%, drag down below the merged layer and place in position.  Duplicate, mirror and flip the duplicate and also place in position. 

Open sb_pmt_berry-sweet_greenery 1 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 70%, mirror and flip, place in position and apply the drop shadow. When I had all my elements in position, I erased a little part of this layer that was showing at the bottom of the tag.

Open your tube, paste as a new layer and bring to the top, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_berry-sweet_flower 7 and paste as a new layer.  Mirror, resize 50% and place in position on the right hand side.  Duplicate, mirror and flip the duplicate, drag it down below the tube and position on the left hand side.  Apply the drop shadow to both layers.

Open sb_pmt_berry-sweet_button 3, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.  Resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_berry-sweet_flower 1 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_berry-sweet_bow 3 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow. 
Open sb_pmt_berry-sweet_flower 6 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_berry-sweet_flower3 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_berry-sweet_greenery 2 and paste as a new layer.  Mirror, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open sb_pmt_berry-sweet_strawberry 3 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments.  When you are happy, crop your tag and add your copyright information and text, then export as a jpeg with compression set to 5 or on a transparent background as a png.
