My computer is probably going into the shop tomorrow (& I will go into withdrawal symptoms).

More snowmen today, this time courtesy of Baby V Dezign & her Winter SnoFriends kit, available in both full & tag size. Visit her at http://babyvdezign.com/ for a list of vendors.
I've made 2 quick pages & a tag with tutorial.

Tutorial for “Winter Blessings” tag

What I used:
“Winter Sno Friends” kit from Baby V Dezign, available in both full & tag sizes. Visit her blog http://babyvdezign.com for a list of stores.
Poser from Medi Evil Creations http://medisaddiction.blogspot.com
Adobe Photoshop Creative Suite 4
(Make sure “show transform controls” is checked to allow for easy resizing of elements.)

What I did:
1. Open a new transparent canvas 700 pixels x 700 pixels. Use circular selection tool to create a circle & fill with background of choice (paper 7).
2. Choose word art (word art 3). Copy & paste, positioning along edge of circle, adjusting size as needed.
3. Choose a holly element ((holly 2). Copy & paste, adjust for size & position at one end of word art. Repeat & position at other end of word art.
4. Choose a tree element (snowtree). Copy & paste, resize as needed & position in center of tag.
5. Choose snowman elements (snowman 1 & snowgirl 1). Copy & paste, positioning one on each side of tree, & apply bevel & emboss effect to each.
6. Copy & paste your poser of choice (Medi-andalia5), resizing as needed & positioning between the snowmen. Apply bevel & emboss effect.
7. Enter desired text. In this case I used Cataneo BT 12. Use a smaller font for tag information.
8. Merge visible & save.
