Flutterby Blue layout & tag

Today I got to play with a lovely tagger's kit from Butterfly Blush Designs called Flutterby Blue.

I made a layout with a heritage family photo
the cutie pictured here is now 60 years old & a grandfather of 3

I also made a nice tag & tutorial

What I used:
Butterfly Blush’s scrap kit Flutterby Blue which can be purchased here: http://butterflyblushdesigns.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=8_9&products_id=124

BitsNBobs Alice poser can be found for free on her blog here:

What I did:
I used Adobe Photoshop Elements 6.0 to make this tag
1. Open a blank canvas 600 pixels x 600 pixels, transparent.
2. Use the circular marquee selector to create a large circle in the center of the canvas. Fill with paper of choice (paper21).
3. Copy & paste apple blossom3 onto the right hand side of the circle, slanting it slightly & adjusting size as desired. Flip the apple blossom horizontally & copy & paste onto left hand side of the circle, adjusting to mirror the first apple blossom.
4. Flip butterfly2 horizontally & then copy & paste, positioning upon the apple blossom, adjusting size as desired.
5. Copy & paste Alice poser into center of tag, adjusting size as desired.
6. Copy & paste flower spray1, sizing & positioning on Alice’s lap.
7. Add text; in this case, the font is Allegro.
8. Save tag.


Last, but far from least, I created a freebie quick page. So, you can see how versatile this kit is. You may want to add it to your collection, especially now when it is on sale for only $1.50!

Enjoy
