Lovely Valentine

Scraps by Rags has recently placed a formerly exclusive kit into her other stores. Lovely Valentine is ideal for creating a lovely tag or page, a tag size kit created at 300 dpi.

I've made a layout, matching quick page for you, a tag & tutorial.

Tutorial for “My Heart is Yours Forever”

What I used:
“Lovely Valentine” kit from Scraps by Rags, tag size at 300 dpi
Poser from Medi Evil Creations
Adobe Photoshop Creative Suite 4.0 (Make certain “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. Fill with the background of choice (paper 17).
2. Create a new layer. Use the preset shape tool to create a heart, fill with background of choice (paper 6) by choosing “new fill layer” with “use previous layer to create a clipping mask” checked.
3. Choose a flower (rose cluster 1). Copy & paste, resizing if necessary, & positioning in a corner. Repeat for the remaining 3 corners.
4. Copy & paste your poser of choice (medi-v-day love 4). Resize & position as desired. Apply bevel & emboss effect.
5. Choose a bow (heart bow 6). Copy, paste, resize as needed, & position at tip of heart. Apply bevel & emboss effect.
6. Enter desired text. I used Bix Antique Script HMK Bold 12 for main text & Monotype Corsiva 12 for name, applying a style from TNT chocolate cherry collection. Use a smaller font (Arial 3) for tag information.
7. Merge visible & save.
