New CT Tag Showoff + Freebie Cluster Frame

Below is a tag I made using Pink Paradox Production's "Dark Passions" kit.  It's a huge kit containing 150 elements, 10 frames and 20 papers.  It's a red/black/white color pallette and is great for all sorts of tags including sexy and love tags.  Head over to PicsForDesign to purchase this kit.  I've also included a freebie cluster frame below the CT tag =)


And here's a preview of the cluster frame; the link is below where you can download it:

Click HERE to download this cluster frame (kit preview not included and size is larger) at 4shared.



Name Script Tutorial

Okay I've been playing around with scripts for kit making and wanted to write a tutorial of sorts on how to record/run scripts for names when filling requests.  This makes adding names to tags super easy and saves on time. I am using PSP X3...let's get started!

Open a new project in PSP (700x700, white background).  Type out your name, resize it to however big you want it and convert to raster layer:


If you don't have your script toolbar added to your toolbar list go ahead and add it:


Now in your script toolbar menu there is an option to Start Script Recording...let's click it.  **Anything you do after clicking record WILL be recorded so if you make a mistake you'll need to click Cancel Script Recording, undo everything you've done and restart the recording**  **For this tutorial I'll be using EyeCandy4000-Gradient Glow & Glass.  You can use whatever tho**

Now that we've started recording go ahead and do the steps to get your desired name effect.  I started with glass:


Now onto gradient glow:



Now a dropshadow.  After you get the effect you want, click on Save Script Recording in the Script toolbar, this is what should pop up:


Always make sure to save it in your Scripts-Restricted folder and save it as a .PspScript file.  Now run a test using a different name.  When running the script you click on the dropdown menu in your script toolbar, click on the saved script and then click play and it should run through.  You'll just have to click OK when menu options pop up and it should work.  If you have questions, let me know and I'll try to help.

Copy/paste/resize/sharpen your elements except the heart 1 element and place where desired.  Now copy/paste/resize/sharpen the heart 1.  Place above paper layer but below frame layer.  Duplicate several times and arrange over paper.  Now copy/paste/resize/sharpen your tube.  Place above frame layer but below elements.  Use your Selection tool and draw a rectangle starting at the edge of the bottom of the frame and draw it down to cover the bottom part of the tube you don't want to be shown.  Now hit delete on your keyboard to delete excess tube.  

Copy/paste pp1 below all layers but above background layer.  Layers - Load/Save Mask - Load/Save Mask from Disk and choose WSL_Mask230.  Resize/sharpen as needed.  Now go back and add a dropshadow to all the layers except both paper layers.  Add name and copyrights and your done!!  If you make a tag following this tutorial please feel free to email it to me as I'd love to see your creations!

Open your preferred tube and resize/sharpen.  Then add it to your tube below the grass layer but above the arch layer.  Add a dropshadow to it.  Copy/paste/resize/sharpen your paper layer and add it below the other layers but above your background layer.  Layers - Load/Save Mask - Load Mask From Disk and select WSL_Mask223.  Now add your name & copyrights & you're done!  If you make a tag using this tutorial I'd love to see it!
