This tutorial was written by Dianna Richards of Digicats (and Dogs)/Di Before Dawn Tutorials. Any resemblance to any other tutorial, published or unpublished, living, dead or undead, is purely coincidental.

Please do not rebroadcast, redistribute or otherwise claim this tutorial or any part there of as your own work.

Items you will need to complete this project:

The Ity Bity Christmas taggers kit by Scrappin with Lil Ole Me, which is available at

Tube of choice. I am using Kim Drapers Christmas Fairy. You must have a license to use this tube, which is available at

Wee Scots Mask #208 which you can download HERE.

Alpha and/or font of choice. I am using the small candy cane alpha and the Santa's Sleigh Full font, both of which are free to use and may be downloaded from

Note that H# and V# refer to Horizontal and vertical coordinates on your canvas grid. Make sure you have View, Rulers checked in order to see the ruler grid.

When I say "Add to your canvas" I expect that you will copy and paste it as a new layer, unless otherwise state in the tutorial.

This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of PSP. It was written using PSP X1, but should work in PSP 8 and up.

Open a new raster layer canvas, 800 x 800, flood filled white.

Open Itybity_P8. Select layers --> Load/Save Mask --> Load Mask from Disk and locate WSL mask # 208. Make sure the fit to canvas button is checked, then click load.

Copy Merged, then add to main canvas, centered.

Open Snowflake Curtain and add to the main canvas, centered.

On the materials pallet, click on the paper layer (raster 1) to activate. Using your magic wand, click in any of the "white" areas around the paper.

On the materials pallet, click on the Snowflake Curtain, (raster 2) to activate, then hit delete. This will remove the snowflakes outside the paper area.

Left click in any of the selected area to deselect.

Open Glittertree1, and resize to 80%. Add to the main canvas, centered at H550, V400.

Select Image --> Resize --> and resize your canvas by 75% (to 600 x 600 pxls). Make sure the resized all layers box is checked.

Open KandyKane2 and resize to 50%. Add to the main canvas, then click Image --> Free Rotate, and rotate left, 35 degrees. Relocate to H150, V400.

Repeat with KandyKane 1, but free rotate right 35 degrees. Center on canvas at H150, V150.

Open Kim Draper's Christmas Fairy, click on the tube layer and copy. Add to your main canvas, centered at H375, V300.

Open Poinsettia and resize to 50%. Add to canvas, centered at H175, V400. Image --> Free Rotate and rotate left, 15 degrees.

Open Lights, resize to 50% and add to canvas, H300, V450.

Open Ity-Bity Bow8, resize to 65% and add to your canvas, centered at H150, V475.

Using font of choice, add the copyright info to your tag. For the Kim Draper tube the info is:

(c) Kim Draper Your_MPT License #
Scraps by Scrappin with Lil Ol Me

You may now save your artist's copy as a .pspimage file.

Using Alpha or font of choice, add your name to the tube. I am using the small Candy Cane alpha which is a FTU alpha available at Center at around H425, V500. Actual location will vary depending upon size of name.

Delete your white background layer, merge visible and save your tag as a .png file, and you're all done!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. If you should have a problem, please feel free to E-Mail Me and I'll be happy to help you out.
