Beautiful Dreamer quick pages

Crystal's Designs has a lovely new kit out called "Beautiful Dreamer" & she let me play with it, so I made 2 quick pages for you & did a tag with tutorial using a graphic I created with the help of an action by Roseli Scraps. Crystal's kit is available here or at any establishment carrying her designs. Please note - all freebies on my blog, including the graphic for today's tag are personal use only. The rare CU freebie I may make available will be clearly noted as an exception to this rule. Please respect these terms of use, as the availability of the materials I use from other designers is contigent upon this.

Tutorial for “Bee-Loved” tag

What I used:
Scrap kit by Crystal’s Designs called “Beautiful Dreamer”
Graphic extracted after running a frame action by Roseli Scraps

What I did:
I used Adobe PSCS 4 to create this tag.
1. Open a blank canvas 600 pixels x 600 pixels. Select desired background & make it available using Edit>Define pattern (paper 2). Use preset shapes to create a large heart. Use Layer>New fill layer with “use previous layer to create clipping mask” checked & fill heart with background.
2. Choose a flower (daisy 3), copy, paste, centering & resizing as needed. Apply bevel & emboss effect.
3. Download bee graphic or use a poser or tube of your choice. Copy, paste, resize as needed & position as desired.
4. Type desired text. In this case I used Bix Antique HMK Bold, in purple, size 12 for name & size 10 for tag title, then applied a glitter style. Use a smaller font for tag information (Arial 2).
5.Merge visible & save.
