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!

The gorgeous kit is called “Red Velvet” by
The kit can also be purchased at

I used two masks, masks 0157 and 63 both by Simone at

Font of choice.



Please check out my “About my tutorials” page if this is the first tutorial of mine you have followed, thank you.

I used two drop shadows , one of vertical and horizontal 0, opacity 100 and blur 15 which I will call the first shadow and the second with vertical and horizontal set to 5, opacity 85 and blur 10 which I will call the second shadow.


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

Copy paper 3, make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection and apply mask 63.

Make another layer, paste the paper again into the selection, deselect and apply mask 0157, resize 90%.  We want to able to see the text in the top right hand corner on the finished tag.

Paste element 4 as a new layer and resize 70%.  Select the interior of the element with your magic wand and expand the selection by 20, make new layer below it, copy paper 3 again and paste it into the selection, deselect.  Apply the first shadow to the frame and merge it down onto the paper.

Paste element 25 as a new layer, resize 45% and rotate 30 degrees to the left.  Again, select the interior and expand the selection as before, make a new layer below it and copy and paste the paper, deselect.  Apply the second shadow to the frame, merge it down onto the paper and place in position.

Paste your tube as a new layer, resize as needed, place in position and apply the second shadow.  I resized my tube 70%.

Paste element 9 as a new layer, resize 40% and rotate 10 degrees to the right, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the second shadow.

Paste element 6 as a new layer, resize 55%, duplicate, place both elements in position and apply the second shadow to each.

Paste element 17 as a new layer, resize 70%, erase the bottom part of the stand, place in position and apply the second shadow.

Paste element 5 as a new layer and bring to the top, resize 70%, place in position and apply the second shadow.

Paste element 14 as a new layer, resize 40%, place in position and apply the second shadow.  I re-coloured this element.

Paste element 15 as a new layer, resize 70%, place in position and apply the second shadow.  Again, I re-coloured this element.

Paste element  1 as a new layer, resize 50%, place in position and apply the first shadow.

Paste element 21 as a new layer, resize 50% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, drag below element 1, place in position and apply the second drop shadow.

Paste element 30 as a new layer, resize 28%, position on the right and apply the second shadow.  Duplicate, mirror the duplicate and position on the left. 

Paste element 26 as a new layer, resize 60%, drag below both copies of element 30,  position on the right and apply the second shadow.  Duplicate, mirror the duplicate and position on the left.

Paste element 16 as a new layer and drag it up above the other flowers,  resize 30% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the second shadow.

Paste element 27 as a new layer and bring to the top, resize 40%, place in position and apply the first shadow.

Paste element 23 as a new layer, resize 40% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the second shadow.

Check your layer positions and make any necessary adjustments,

Paste element 12 as a new layer, resize 60% and rotate 90 degrees to the right, drag right down until it’s just above the mask layers, position on the right and apply the second shadow.  Duplicate, mirror the duplicate and position on the left.  Paste the element again and resize it as before, position along the top, erase any that overlaps onto the other copies and apply the second shadow.

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