l threw these tags together in 30 mins lol. l just adore the elements in this kit, thank you Puddicat Creations for an amazing scrapkit. You can view Puddicat's Blog here and you can purchase them here l used Suzanne Woolcott's image for one of these tags you can get them here l used a font called ' Pablo ' for my wordart. Hugs lee xx ----------------------- This tutorial will be based on one tag not both. l am sure you can tell the differences in the tag's l will tut the GORJUSS tag The other tag is another example to what you can do with the scrapkit l do love both tags l opened a new image 700 x 600 pixels and add fence 2 resizing it and adding a drop shadow of 3, then l followed that with frame 3 rotated it and resized it to 680 adding it to the fence also adding a drop shadow of 7 Then l opened paper 7 resized it to 450 pixels and copy and paste it to the tag sending it down so it sits below the fence and frame. The paper will need some fitting to the frame. Next was Cross3 l resized it and dropped it below the fence adding a drop shadow of 2 Web1 was placed on the top of the fence and resized. With Deco3 resized and placed to the left side of the web l also added a 2rd Deco3 so it had a deeper effect drop shadow of 2 was added Skullchain1 was resized to fit on the right side of the tag, followed by spider2 which was resized and a drop shadow of 2 was added. Once l added the Gorjuss image l brought the spider to the top. Next came the books it was also resized and given a drop shadow of 2 once it was put in place, to the left of it l added the Black cat which was resized and mirrored a drop shadow of 3 was added. Just above the cat l added spider 2 angling and resizing it so it look as if it is climbing the books Another Gorjuss image was added and pasted to the left of the cat. Pentagram3 was selected and resized to fit on the far left corner with the hourglass resized and angled to sit on top of it, both were given a drop shadow of 3 l used Pablo for the wordart, outline was black with #C71585 as the filler color Dont forget to add any copyright and license details Hugs lee xx

This tutorial is for one of my best friends " Belle " who has been there for me and my group for the past 2 years. These tags were made with a Scrapkit from HappyHippyHoppy you can download the scrapkit from here its a very unique Scrapkit full of charm and color. l also used a template from yvette, you can view her blog here and you can download no 1 - 15 templates from here l am using template no 11 l hope you enjoy this tutorial Hugs lee xx -------------------------- A new image 600 x 600 was opened and l opened the template, l began with the main circle of the template Opening paper 20 and resizing it to 400 pixels then adding it to flood fill and filling the circle from template also adding a drop shadow of 5. When using flood fill l tend to set it on 200 scale unless the paper has a design on it l find this setting suitable l then reopened the template adding the main rectangle and adding paper 1 as a flood fill, l then opened the template and selected the frame. l added a drop shadow of 3 to the frame. Following this up with the last two parts of the template and their frames, l flood filled the middle of these shapes with the color lemon and opened paper 15 and resized it to 400 pixels and flood filled the frames l then opened the folder with wordart and add one to the tag after resizing it l copy and paste it on the tag adding a angle and a drop shadow of 2. With my tags l selected Barbara Jensen and Suzanne Woolcott images, you can locate Barbara's images on this link and Suzanne Woolcott's on this link Each image was resized and given a drop shadow of 4 when it was placed in the correct spot. l selected blingbling1 and resized it and placing it below the image with a angle and drop shadow of 2 l added the butterfly from template placing it on the top of rectangle and given it a mauve color, then adding another butterfly angling it to show the outline of the one below Buttons 4 and 6 were resized and add to fill the space on the far left with button 4 being resized a touch smaller, both were give a drop shadow of 2 Buttons 1 and 4 were resized and were placed in a row in the bottom right box, a drop shadow of 2 was added With my tags l choose to add my own WordArt, by using blk and paper 15 which is set as a background color. l used 2 peas Airplanes for all my font needs Do not forget to added copyright and license details Hugs lee xx
