Pure Nostalgia






In this tutorial I used the “surprise” bonus tube “Lisa”by
Barbara Jensen.
This is the second free bonus tube that comes with a
tube purchase of $10 from

I used a kit called “Nostalgia” by
This is really beautiful kit in lovely subtle colours and
is also available at

You will also need a mask, I used Big Mask 017 by
Vix.

Font of choice.



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


Open  a new transparent canvas 700 by 600 pixels and fill with white. 

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 6 into the selection, deselect and apply the mask. 

Paste element 2 as a new layer and resize 37%.  Select the interior of the element with your magic wand, expand the selection by 10 and make a new layer below it, copy paper 3 and paste it into the selection.  Paste the tube as a new layer, resize 55% and position in the frame, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the tube and apply one to the frame but changing the horizontal to 0 then repeat this drop shadow.  Close off your white background layer and mask layer, merge visible and re-open the closed layers.  Duplicate the merged layer, mirror the duplicate and place both copies into position.

Paste element 25 as a new layer, resize 60%, drag below both merged layers, place in position and apply the drop shadow (remember to change the settings back).

Paste element 10 as a new layer, resize70% and rotate 40 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 4 as a new layer, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 26 as a new layer, resize 40% and rotate 10 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 28 as a new layer and bring to the top, resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 22 as a new layer, resize 50%, mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 20 as a new layer, resize 30% and rotate 10 degrees to the left,  place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 17 as a new layer, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 21 as a new layer, resize 35%, flip and rotate 30 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 16 as a new layer, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 23 as a new layer, resize 30% and rotate 70 degrees to the right, place in position  and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 6 as a new layer, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 3 as a new layer, resize 35%, mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 18 as a new layer, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 27 as a new layer, resize 40% and rotate 90 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 11 as a new layer, resize 40% and rotate 50 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Paste element 9 as a new layer, resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of layers and make any necessary adjustments, then when you are done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text, then export on a transparent background as a png.
