Designs by Denise has a scrapkit called Heartfelt that I've used to make you a quick page based on a layout & a tag with tutorial.

Tutorial for “Heartfelt” tag

What I used:
“Heartfelt” scrap kit from Designs by Denise
Poser from Bits N Bobs
Adobe PhotoShop Creative Suite 4.0 (Make sure “show transform controls” is checked for easy resizing of elements.)

What I did:
1. Open a blank transparent canvas 700 pixels x 700 pixels. (My final tag is 678 pixels x 639 pixels.) Use preset shapes rounded rectangle to create a square or rectangle. Check off “use previous layer to create clipping mask” & create a new fill layer with paper of choice (4b). Highlight shape & fill layers in the layer palette, right click, choose “link layers”.
2. Create a new layer, use preset shapes to create a heart shape. Use move tool to slant heart. Repeat the steps in step 1 to fill heart with paper of choice (3b) & link the shape to the fill. Apply the bevel & emboss effect.
3. Choose either a frame or a heart charm (heart charm with bow). Copy & paste, & adjust size & position to suit the background.
4. Copy & paste a border of choice (lace edge 1), resizing & positioning along top edge of tag. Copy & paste that border, flipping it to go along bottom edge of tag.
5. Copy & paste flower of choice (2). Resize & position as desired.
6. Copy & paste poser of choice (Cookie New Year 4), resize & position as desired.
7. Enter desired text. In this case I used NotNorvalHMKBold 14 & applied Krissy’s Scraps True Love Bevel Style. Use a smaller font (Arial 3) for tag info.
8. Merge visible & save.
