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 “Love Valentine Collection”.
This beautiful collection comprises Zindy’s tube “A Delicate Love”
and matching kit “Love Valentines” by
The collection can be purchased for just $1.80 at
Zindy’s store, here.

You will also need a mask, I used Designs by Vaybs mask 122, here.

Font is 2Peas Heart's Delight, here.




Remember to sharpen up those elements after resizing/rotating as otherwise your tag will look a little blurry; check out my Tips and Tricks page for more info.

I used a drop shadow throughout of vertical and horizontal 5, opacity 80, blur 10.



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

Open CBJ_LoveVal_P4 and copy.   Make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 85%.

 Open CBJ_LV_Branch2Elem and paste as a new layer.  Resize 65% and apply the drop shadow.

Open CBJ_LV_RoseFrm1Elem and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%. 

Open CBJ_LoveVal_P7 and copy.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand and expand the selection by 15, make a new layer below the frame and paste the paper into the selection, deselect.  Leave this until we have our tube in place.

Open the tube and paste as a new layer, resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open the close up of the tube, paste as a new layer and resize 75%.  Again, select the interior of the frame and expand it as before, drag the tube down between the tube and paper layer and position nicely in the frame, invert the selection, hit delete to remove the excess tube and deselect.  The opacity of the close up is already lowered so just apply the drop shadow to the frame.

Open CBJ_LoveVal_BranchElem and paste as a new layer.  Drag up so its just below the main tube, resize 50%, place in position, erase the stalk that shows at the bottom of the tube and apply the drop shadow.

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

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

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

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

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

Open CBJ_LV_FlowEle3 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Open CBJ_LV_Ribbon2Elem, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.  Resize 50% and rotate 90 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open CBJ_LV_DeepRedRose2Elem and paste as a new layer.  Resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open CBJ_LV_BoxesElem and paste as a new layer.  Resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Open CBJ_LV_Bow2Elem and paste as a new layer.  Resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Open CBJ_LV_LoveChainElem and paste as a new layer.  Resize 17%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments.

Go back to the love chain element and erase the small part on the left so it looks like the chain is between the boxes.

Open CBJ_LV_Butterfly2 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 10% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, duplicate, mirror the duplicate, place both butterflies into position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Open CBJ_LV_HrtBlingsElem and paste as a new layer.  Resize 50%, drag down so its just above the mask.  Duplicate, rotate the duplicate 180 degrees to the right.  Place both layers into position and apply the drop shadow to each.

 When you are done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text, then export as a jpeg with compression set to 5 or on a transparent background as a png. 

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, if you have any questions, please email me here.  As always, I would love to see the result and include it in the gallery!
