To do this tutorial you must have some knowledge of PSP and Animation Shop.

This Tag was made using PSPX2 and Animation Shop. This tutorial is also copyrighted by Young at Heart Designs.
Im using the beautiful work of Suzanne Woolcott. If you wish to use her work you must have a license to use her work before using her tubes.
To purchase her tubes and receive a license go to HERE.
The adorbale kit I used is "You and Me" by Kristi W. at ScrappinDivaz Designz and it can be found HERE.

Mask #32 by BabesDesignz: HERE
Wordart: HERE
Font: Coca Cola ii
Plug-in: Tramages>Tow The Line
Plug-in: Eye Candy 4000>Gradient Glow

I used shadow settings V3,H2, O50, B5, Color Black on ALL elements, layers, text and the tube except for the mask layer.
I also sharpened every element and tube I had to resize to get the quality like the original size.

1 Open template and delete the copyright.
2 Click on 2nd layer.
3 Open, copy and paste your choice of paper. Resize to the canvas size.
4 Click back on the 2nd layer and go to Selections>Select All>Float>Defloat.
5 Click on the newly added paper.
6 Go to Selections>Invert and hit delete on your keyboard.
7 Go to selections>Select None and delete the original layer.
8 Repeat Steps 2-7 for all included layers with your choice of papers.
I used: kristiw_youandme_p1, kristiw_youandme_p2, kristiw_youandme_p3, kristiw_youandme_p4,
kristiw_youandme_p7, kristiw_youandme_p10
9 Click on the squares layers and go to Effects>Plug-ins>Tramages>Tow The Line
10 Do these settings: 25,58.31,9 and click ok.
11 Open, copy and paste as a new layer your choice of tube.
12 Resize and position the tube under above the circle layer but below the circle frame.
13 Duplicate the tube and move the duplicated tube above the frame.
14 Now get your eraser tool and erase of the each the tubes that are sticking out past the frame.
(Use my example as a reference. I did not erase the top of the tube.)
15 Open, copy and paste as a new layer your choice of grass supplied in the kit.
16 Resize to the desired size and position it where desired.
(Use my example as a reference. I position it pretty low at the bottom of the canvas.
17 Open, copy and paste as new layers any desired elements.
18 Now click on your grass layer and duplicate it.
19 Move the duplicated under all the newly added element layers so it sits behind them.
20 Move the duplicated up a little so it looks as if the elements are sitting in the grass.
(Again, use my example as a reference.)
21 Go to the bottom layer and paste your desired choice of paper.
I used: kristiw_youandme_p12
22 Now open your mask and minimize it.
23 Now go to Layers>New Mask Layer>From Image.
24 In the Source Drop down window select BabesDesignz_Mask32.
25 Make sure Source luminance and Inver mask data are selected. Click ok.
26 Go to Layers>Merge>Merge Group.
27 Resize the mask layer to be a little bigger.
28 Get your text tool and type out your name.
I used colors: foreground: #e6afb4
background: #b63d44
I used the font size: 55 and added a gradient glow- width 3 and color white.
29 Add your copyrights.
30 If you are not doing the animation, open, copy and paste your wordart that I supplied you.
31 Now resize and save as jpeg.

If you are doing the animation follow these steps:

32 Okay, open, copy and paste as a new layer the kristiw_youandme_balloon from the kit.
33 Position it over to the right side of the canvas and about half way down.
(Use my example for reference.)
34 Now duplicate it and move the duplicated balloon a little up and a little over.
35 Keep duplicating until you have the balloon all the way over to the other side of the canvas.
The last balloon should be directly across from the very first and original balloon.
36 Now rename all the balloon layers as balloon1, balloon2 and so on.
(I ended up with a total of 10 balloon layers.)
37 Now hide all the balloon layers except balloon1.
38 Open, copy and paste as a new layer the wordart supplied.Make sure this is the top layer so the balloons are behind it.
39 Copy merge and go to Animation Shop. Paste as a new animation.
40 Back in PSP, hide the balloon1 and unhide the balloon2.
41 Copy merge and go to Animation Shop.
42 Right-click on your frame and select Paste After Current Frame.
43 Now repeat these steps until all your balloons have been pasted after current frame.
(If you had 10 balloon layers, you should have 10 frames.)
44 Still in Animation Shop select all and go to Animation>Frame Properties and change it to 55.
45 Now still copy.
46 Minimize the animation.
47 Now paste as a new animation which will paste your animation and you will have a total of 2 animations.
48 Select All and Go to Animation>Reverse Frames.
49 Now I need to you to copy all the frames.
50 Once you have copied go to you last frame of your original animation and click on it so the last frame is the only one selected.
51 Right-click and select paste after current frame. If you originally had 10 frames now you should have 20.
52 Save as a gif and you are all done!!!

I hope you enjoyed my tut!! Send me the results!!

This Tag was made using PSPX2 and Animation Shop. This tutorial is also copyrighted by Young at Heart Designs.
Im using the awesome work of Elias Chatzoudis. If you wish to use his work you must have a license to use his work before using his tubes.

If you are doing the animation, follow these steps:

21 Go to your first layer and get the paint bucket tool. Flood fill white.
22 Merge together the duplicated tubes in the frame.

When Life Gives You Lemons..... (Animated) Tut

Photobucket

To do this tutorial you must have some knowledge of PSP and Animation Shop.

This Tag was made using PSPX2 and Animation Shop. This tutorial is also copyrighted by Young at Heart Designs.

The adorbale kit I used is "When Life Gives You Lemons" by KNC Scraps and it can be found HERE.


Supplies I used:
Mask & Wordart: HERE
(If this mask is yours please let me know so I can give you proper credit.)
Font: SBC Pool Noodle
Plug-in: Eye Candy 4000->Gradient Glow
Plug-in": DSB Flux->Bright Noise


I used shadow settings V3,H2, O50, B5, Color Black on ALL elements, layers, text and the tube except for the mask layer.
I also sharpened every element and tube I had to resize to get the quality like the original size.


Ok lets get going!!

1 Open a new blank 700x700, we will resize later.
2 Open, copy and paste your choice of paper.
I used paper5
3 Make sure you are on your new paper layer.
4 Go to Layers->New Layer Mask->From Image
5 Click on Source Window Drop Down and select mask100.
6 Make sure source luminance is selected and hit okay.
7 Right click on the mask layer and select Merge->Merge Group.
8 Resize your mask layer to be as big as the canvas layer so you can see if much better after you have pasted your elements.
9 Open, copy and paste as new layers any elements you desire.
I used: fresh squeezed
glass1
jug
lemon1
lemonade sign
lemonade stand
lemonade stool
lemonade table
lemongirl2
Place the elmenets & tube where desired.
10 Choose desired font and type out your desired text.
I used colors: Foreground: #fcda4a
Background: #000000
I also added a gradient glow to the text with the color: #017534.
I also used text size: 20
11 Add Copyrights
12 If you are not doing the animation merge all layer, resize all layers to 500x500 and save.
ALL DONE!!

If you are going to do the animation follow these steps:

13 Go to your very first layer and get your paint bucket tool and flood fill white.
14 Click on your lemonade stand layer and select your magic wand tool.
15 Then click on the part of the stand that you want to add the effect too.
Use my tag for reference. I selected the whole lemon part.
You may need to hit select and click it at the same time to get the whole lemon.
16 Once you have the part you want selected duplicate the layer twice, giving you a total of 3 layers.
17 Now rename each to lemonade stand1, lemonade stand2 and lemonade stand3.
18 Click on your lemonade stand1 and go to Effects->Plug-ins->DSB Flux->Bright Noise
19 Use the settings: Intesity 40 and on Mix. Hit okay.
20 Now click on your lemonade stand2 and go to Effects->Plug-ins->DSB Flux->Bright Noise
21 Use the same settings and hit okay. Repeat these steps for your lemonade stand3.
22 Go to Selections->Select None
23 Now hide lemonade stand2 and lemonade stand3.
24 Copy merge and go to Animation Shop and paste as a new animation.
25 Back in PSP and hide lemonade stand1 and unhide lemonade stand2.
26 Copy merge and go to Animation Shop and right click on your frame. Select paste after current frame.
