Any resemblance to another
tutorial is purely coincidental.
For this tutorial, I’m using a
tube by Ana Neves
You can purchase this tube at

Tube of Choice
Scrap of choice
I am using one called
Days Of Olde
by Leigh Penrod
You can purchase the scrap
at Heartfelt Perfections
Animation Shop

Open a 600x250 new image.
Open up your tube & scrap supplies.

Click on your new image with
your magic wand tool.
Open a scrap paper.
Resize 17%.

Paste the paper as a new layer
onto your selected new image.
Selections invert & press delete.

Open a lace ribbon.
Resize 17%.
Paste as a new layer onto
your tag.
Select none.
Add a drop shadow to the lace.
2.2,50,5 Pale pink color.
Apply the drop shadow twice.

Paste your tube as a new layer.
Position on a side of choice of
your tag.
Press delete.
Add a drop shadow to the tube.
2.2,50,5 Black

Open a heart element.
Resize 20% & 80%.
Paste as a new layer over the lace ribbon.

Add a new raster layer to the top
of the layer palette.
Select this layer with your magic wand.
Fill with a color of choice from the scrap.
Selections modify contract by 4.
Press delete.
Select none.

Adjust add noise
Uniform 25.
Add a drop shadow to the frame border
we just created.
2.2,50,5 Black

Merge the layers below the frame together.
Add artist copyright information & name.

Type out your quote.
I did each line of the quote as a different
layer in my layer palette. I ended up with 3
layers of the quote.

Now leave the top line of your
quote visible & hide the rest of the
quote layers.

Copy merged into Animation Shop (AS).
Paste as a new animation.

Back in PSP, unhide the 2nd quote layer.
Copy merged & paste in AS after current frame.
Repeat this step for the 3rd quote layer pasting
after the 2nd frame.

Okay now in PSP, hide all the quote layers
on the tag.
Copy merged.
In AS, click on the first frame.
Paste before current frame.
This should give you 4 frames total now.
Select all
Frame properties 65
View Animation - to make sure you like the

animation on tag.

If you are happy, save tag as gif.
Thanks for trying my tutorial.
