Snaps From the Past





In this tutorial I used the tube “Amy” by

I used the kit “Telling Stories” from
This is another stunning kit from Dee with so many
Beautiful elements I just did not know which ones to use!
You can purchase the kit from

I used mask 1, also by Dee, you can get it

Font of choice.



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


Open a new transparent canvas 750 by 750 pixels and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 10 into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.

Paste spray 6, resize 93%.

Paste spray 4.

Paste wordart 2, resize 90% and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the tube (I did a little recolouring which is permitted by Pics for Design).  Resize the tube 25%, rotate 1 degree to the right and apply the drop shadow.  Place the wordart and tube in position.  Put this canvas aside for a while.

Open temp 1, duplicate and close the original, resize 40% with the box “Resize all layers” checked, enlarge the canvas to 500 by 500 pixels, make a new layer right on the bottom and fill with white.

Paste the tube again (I changed the colour of her hat).   Resize the tube 45% and move it down so it is between “top pic scratch overlay” and “top pic”.  Select “top pic”, float and defloat it, using my tag for reference, position the tube in the frame, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess.  Lower the opacity of the tube to around 75.    Repeat the above with “middle pic” rotating the tube 20 degrees to the left and again with “left pic” rotating the tube 40 degrees to the left.  When you are done, delete the bottom white background layer, copy merged and paste on your original canvas, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 78, resize 30%, drag below the photo layer, place in position and apply the drop shadow.
