Merry Christmas Featuring Holiday Glam & Keith Garvey

This tutorial was written entirely by me, using PSP9, any resemblance to any other is purely coincidental.
This tutorial should work with any version of PSP.
This tutorial is written with the belief that you have a working knowledge of PSP, but is also suitable for beginners.

Materials you will need:

Scrap Kit of choice, I used Holiday Glam by Sweet Addictionz Scraps.
Tube of choice, I used the art of ©Keith Garvey which requires a license which may be purchased at his store.
Mask of choice, I used x14, and if this is your work, please contact me so that I may credit you.
Font of choice, I used Santa's Big Secret.

Xero ~ Radiance
Xero ~ Porcelain
Eye Candy 4000 ~ Gradient Glow

Let's begin.
Open a new image, 750x750.
Begin placing Evergreen elements Flip and mirror to make a "mask" of evergreen.
Merge visible.
Copy and paste as a new layer a paper from your kit.
Apply your mask; Layers, Load/Save mask, Load Mask from disk.
Merge the group; Layers, Merge, Merge group.
Add a frame from your kit, position as desired, and add a drop shadow of choice, I used 0,0,100,12.
Now using elements of choice, re-sizing as needed between 30-80 add them around the frame.
Play with the settings on Porcelain to emphasize different elements and to deep colors.
Also add a drop shadow as desired.
Place your tube  adding a drops shadow of choice I used 0,0,100,10.
Apply Radiance with these settings or those that suit your tube:

Duplicate the tube layer and add a Gaussian Blur of 4 then change the properties to Soft light.
Adjust your elements as needed to compliment your tube.
Use the deform tool to assist in this process.
When necessary duplicate an element and move beneath an object and erase areas on the duplicate layer to blend the elements together.
Finally choose a word art from your kit and re-size as desired and place in your tag then apply a gradient glow of choice.
Play with this to insure that you will achieve your desired result.
Re-size, add your copyright and your name.
Thank you for trying our my tutorial.


Kaci's Kits & Kadoodles

Hi, I'm Kaci. Nope not that Kaci, the other one. I am still fairly new to PSPing compared to some and I love it!! I want to continue to learn so I can get better and continue making my own scrap kits. I love to make new friends so stop by and visit my little corner over here.

I'm still learning to blog too, so be patient while I figure this out, and I'm learning to do blog layouts, lol. I'm happy to have a few followers and look forward to more.

I've recently ventured into Digital scrap-booking store ownership with friends, so feel free to check out the links on the page.

I also love to knit, crochet (not really good at that just yet), read, cook, bake and learn new things. Most of what I post will probably be PSP related, but Iwill occasionally vent here too. Please leave a comment let me know what you think or if you want me to try something for a freebie.

I would love to see the results of my tutorials if you want to share. Please email them to me at I look forward to seeing results of my tuts so come on email me lol!!!
