Welcome to Creative Addictions!!
Our tutorials are open to everyone!!
But our group has a lot more to offer in the way of
challenges and shares, so you're very welcome to
register and join us.


My SuppliesHERE
(Including Clusterframe, Glass and gradient glow setting, wordart and snow)
My Northern Light kit HERE

I'm using Artwork by Keith Garvey, available at MPT HERE

Plugins used
Alien Skin Eye Candy 5 Impact - Glass
Alien Skin Eye Candy 5 Impact - Gradient Glow

Font I've used is called Whisper

Let's start

Add the "Vaybs Big Button" file to your installed Alien Skin Eye Candy 5 Impact -
Settings - Glass folder, and the "Vaybs Double Small" file goes in the same Settings
folder but in the folder called - Glow . Then we're ready :)))

Open my clusterframe, close the top layer and go to the grey background circle,
Selections; select all, float, defloat.
Open paper 7, copy and close it again, paste into selection (Ctrl+Shift+L),
Add the tree, resize to 40%, add the 3 pines, resized to 40%,
add the deers, resize to 20%, move them to your liking.
Add your tube of choice and place it.
Add a new raster layer below the clusterframe, I've still got the circle selection
active, if you don't select again ;). add the Eye Candy 5 Impact - Glass -
Vaybs Big Button to the new raster layer.
Invert selection and delete access from the tube layer, trees and anything else you may
have decorated with that sticks out on the side of the circle.

Add the little wordart to the clusterframe tag, or make your own ;)

Remember proper and then we're ready to animate.

Close the layer, wordart, clusterframe and Glass effect (every layer from the glass
effect and up) If you want the white background or another color, use it, I'm
using it without background.

Copy Merged (Ctrl+Shift+C), (Don't merge and Copy, esp when you use transparent backgrounds
cos then you don't get all the access space around the circle that we need to add the
frame later.)
Paste as new animation in Ani shop 3 then paste after current (Ctrl+Shift+L)
til you've got 10 frames.
Open the snow animation circle, select all, copy. (Ctrl+A , Ctrl+C)
On the tag circle, Select all then paste into selected frames (Ctrl+A, Ctrl+E).

Back in PSP, close the open layers and open the layer from Glass and up.
Copy Merged again (Ctrl+Shift+C),
and paste as new animation in Ano Shop, paste after current
til you have 10 frames (Ctrl+Shift+L), then select all, copy.

On the snow circle paste into selection (Ctrl+E) and make sure you get it centered, so no
areas get cut ;) (Look to the right and left to get the leafs inside the tag area)

view animation to see that it's all good ;)

Select all and copy, paste it into psp and save it as a psp file for safekeeping and posibility
to open it in ani shop and add names to it later, (I never include name layers when I animate).

Add names to your tag, give it a double glow using my Eye Candy 5 Impact - Gradient Glow -
Vaybs Double Small, change the black color to a color from the tag I picked a light red from
the girls dress.
Copy the name and paste as new animation do the same steps you've done twice now
to add it to your tag.

View animation and Save as...

Settings are here if you use a transparent background

And you're done

Hope you've had fun.

Pups, just navigate to your plugin folder, like in my documents for example, where plugins should be. Go to the Eye Candy 5 folder, then the impact folder, then the glass folder and just put the file in there. No installing necessary.
