About Me

Hello and welcome to my blog! I am Vivienne, living in the UK and married with a son who now lives in Perth, Australia and a daughter who has given me two gorgeous grandsons! Paint Shop has been my hobby for more years than I can remember and I love making tags. I have always loved doing tutorials written by others and a couple of years ago started writing them myself. As well as tag tutorials, I also have a Tips and Tricks page where you will find tutorials on basic Paint Shop techniques. I hope you enjoy my blog and have fun with my tutorials. Please be sure also to check out the Tag Gallery and see some of the awesome results to the tutorials!

In this tutorial I used a colourful, fun scrap kit called

“The Boo Crew” by
All elements used are in the kit,
you can get it here.

You will also need a mask, I used Insatiable Dreams mask 598, here.

Font is Ghastly Panic, here.


Remember to sharpen up those elements after resizing/rotating; for more info, check out my Tips and Tricks page.

I used a drop shadow throughout of vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 75, blur 5.


Open a new transparent canvs 650 by 550 pixels and flood fill with white.

Open one of the papers and copy, I used gemini_boocrew_p1.  Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 90%.

Open gemini_boocrew_e24 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 70%.

Open another of the papers and copy, this time I used gemini_boocrew_p8.  Select the interior of both parts 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.

Open gemini_boocrew_e16 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 70%, drag down below the merged layer, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_boocrew_e18, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.  Resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_boocrew_e49 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_boocrew_e51 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_boocrew_e43 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_boocrew_e3 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_boocrew_e7 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 95%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_boocrew_e33 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 55%, drag down so its below e7, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_boocrew_e30 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_boocrew_e5 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_boocrew_e31 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_boocrew_e31 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_boocrew_e32 and paste as a new layer.  Mirror, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_boocrew_e4 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_boocrew_e40 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_boocrew_e38, paste as a new layer and bring to the top. Resize 15%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open gemini_bookcrew_e39 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 15% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your elements and make any necessary adjustments.  When you are happy, copy your tag, add your text, your copyright information if you used a tube or just credit Gemini Creationz for the scrap.
