Welcome to Tutorials by Vaybs
Here you find all my tag tutorials using Paint Shop Pro (I use PSPX) and Animation Shop 3.
They're all made with FTU elements ;) And if I'm doing my job right you might pick up a few new ideas and tricks on the way.
All links open in a new window;)
Layout tag is made with my Betsys Paradise Dream kit ;)
Have fun!!

Plugins used

Alien Skin - Eye Candy 5 Impact
Alien Skin - Xenofex 2

Font of choise, I've used JackieO

Let's start

Open a new image, 650 x 550 flood fill it white
Add frame nr 5, pick 2 papers,
use the magic wand to select inside one of the circles,
selections - modify - expand by 4, copy your choise of paper,
add a new raster layer below the frame and paste
into selection (Ctrl+Shift+L), deselect.
Do the same in the other circle, then merge the to paper layers
down on each other.

Duplicate the paper layer 3 times (close the original, I like to
keep an original)
Add xenofex 2 Constellation - bling bling
with these settings to all 3 paper layers
just changeing the Random Seed button on 2 of them.

Now you're ready to add decorations as you'd like
My star, heart and bell is resized 50%, and remember to sharpen
things you resize alot ;)

My doodles are resized 80 %, flower 35 %, bow 60 %,
holly 50 %, candy cane 60 % and wordart 80 %
Also added a very suddle white glow
(alien skin - eye candy Impact) to the wordart

Add your name, I picked a golden color and duplicated it 3 times
added a red glow on my original layer

then added noise (uniform, monochrome, 40, 45 and 50)
to the 3 duplicated layers.

Now to give your frame a glass look
Add a new raster layer just below the frame

Use the magic wand to select inside both circles (hold down the
shift key to select the second one)
Go back to your new layer, then add Eye Candy Impact - Glass
choose clear under settings then with these basics

and this lightning

Remember to add the proper ©
And drop shadows ;)

Then we're ready to animate
close all but one paper layer and noisy name layer
(remember to keep the glowing name layer open for all 3)
merge visible and copy

paste as new animation in Ani Shop 3
add the next 2 frames by opening the next paper and name,
closing the used ones.

Then we have 3 frames and can save it ;)

That's it
Hope you've enjoyed it.
