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 the fabulous layered tube
“Warm Fuzzies” from the latest pack 69 by
Barbara Jensen.
You can purchase Barbara’s tubes from

The kit is “Time Machine” from

The kit can also be purchased at

I used mask 31 from

Font of choice.




I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 75, blur 10.


Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 600 and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 4 into the selection, deselect, apply the mask and resize it 95%.

Paste element 23, resize 50% and place in position.  Click anywhere on your canvas outside of the element to make a selection, invert the selection and contract it by 15, make a new layer below the element and paste paper  3 into it, deselect.  we will put the tube in later.

Paste element 2, resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 16, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the tube, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 30, resize 65%, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 24, resize 60%, drag below the word art, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 13, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 31, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 22, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 18, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 8a, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 11, resize 35% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 28, resize 40% and position on the left duplicate, mirror the duplicate, position it on the right below the flower there an apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 3a making sure it’s above the leaves, resize 40% and duplicate, mirror the duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 9, resize 25% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 20, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 25, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers now and see if you need to make any adjustments.

Paste element 27a, resize 55%, drag below the shell and position on the left, duplicate, move the duplicate over the right and erase any that shows below the tube then apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste the close up tube as a new layer between the frame and the paper, resize 65% and position in the frame erasing any that shows outside of it, change the blend mode to “Soft Light” and apply the drop shadow to the frame.

When you are done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text, then export on a transparent background as a png.
