Change Your Name

Change Your Name
written 4/2/2016

This tutorial is meant purely as a guide. Feel free to make your tag unique by using your own choice of tube and scrap kit. If you want your tag to look just like mine then use the same supplies I have used. This tutorial assumes you have a knowledge of paint shop pro. Any resemblance to any other tag or tutorial is purely coincidental.

Supplies Used:

Tube by Pandora Creations. She is called Berta Bride. You can purchase her at

Matching scrap kit by Blissful Designs. It is also called Berta Bride. You can purchase it at

Font of your choice. I am using Anggie 1. This is a PTU font.


Drop shadow used throughout:
0 0 50 10.00 black

Let's Begin:
Open element 34 and shift+D to duplicate.
Close the original.
Make your canvas large enough to work with.
Move the frame up and to the top more.
Using your magic wand select the inside of the frame.
Selections modify and expand by 3.
Open paper 7 and copy and paste as a new layer.
Drag down under the frame.
Selections invert and hit delete.
Selections select none.
Add a drop shadow to the frame.
Open element 14 and re-size by 50% 2x and then again by 60%.
Copy and paste as a new layer.
Place on the frame somewhere.
Duplicate many times and scatter around the frame.
Add a drop shadow to each of them.
If you are like me and like to keep your layer palette neat and tidy then merge all of these layers together to 1 layer.
Open element 12 and copy and paste as a new layer.
Drag to the bottom.
Move to the top left of the heart frame.
Make it so the top of the flowers are peeking out from behind the frame.
Make sure you can see some of the red for that pop of color.
Image free rotate to the left 15 degrees.
Adjust sharpen.
Move this duplicate down and to the left just a little bit.
Duplicate again and repeat the above steps with this 3rd one.
Once you are done and have them in place merge these 3 together.
Add a drop shadow.
Duplicate and image flip horizontal.
Move this copy to the right side of the heart frame.
Merge these 2 layers together.
Open your tube and copy and paste as a new layer.
Re-size as needed so she is just larger than the frame.
Place in the center of the frame.
Add a drop shadow.
Now lets use some of the awesome elements from this kit.
I will list the elements I used.
Placement is completely up to you.
Again use my tag as a reference if you want your tag to look just like mine.
Feel free to use other elements that I did not use if you wish.
This is what will make your tag unique.
Elements I used:
45 (duplicated for 2)
Add your name.
Add your copyright and licensing information.
Crop and save.
