This tutorial was written for those that have a working knowledge of PSP (I use Version 9).
Artwork by Tony Mauro and you can find him here, he is a pay to use artist. At the time of my purchase, he was still selling with CILM.
Tube or image of choice
Scrapkit: "Merland" by Oopsie Daisy and can be purchased here.
Font(s): Moon Dance Two
Here we go!
Open a new image, 500 x 500 (we can resize later), flood fill with white.
Open crateframe - Copy, paste as a new layer, resize to fit.
Open paper 1 - Copy, paste as a new layer, resize to fit right under frame opening, move down to bottom layer.
Open tube or image of choice - Copy, paste tube as new layer, make any resizing now.
Add new vector layer - Using the ellipse tool with foreground and background both using #846042, draw a shape to be the sand, convert to raster layer when ready, add noise of 35, with gaussian and monochrome both checked, move to bottom layer
Open assortment of elements - Copy, paste each as a new layer, resizing and rotating to your liking. Try to "layer" all the greenery to give the sand more depth.
At this point, I usually resize if I need a smaller image. I also save both the original size and the smaller size images.
Add a new vector layer for you name, I flood filled mine with paper 14.
Go back through to sharpen and add a drop shadow to your layers.
Add your copyright as the finishing touch.
Save your tag in your favorite format and you are done!!
