**This tutorial was written using Photoshop CC. I believe the instructions should work with various other versions, but they are not tested on any other version. This tutorial is my own creation. Any similarity to any other tutorial is not done purposely or knowingly (aside from the fact that the process is pretty similar in most tutorials). If you do not know how to do some of the things I mention here (like mirroring an image, adding a drop shadow, resizing elements, etc.), check out my “Tips and Tricks” tutorial. **
PTU Kit- “Wonderland My Way” by Disturbed Scraps. Available at Scraps N Company.
Tube – “Blue Alice” and “Royal Heart” by Danny Lee. You can purchase the tubes at Scraps N Company.
DS – Drop Shadow
Settings I use:
DS Settings - Blend Mode set to Multiply, Opacity set to 75%, Angle set to 120 degrees, Distance 5, Spread 0, Size 5
Open up the PSD file for the template. This will be referred to as the working canvas in my directions when switching between canvases.
Add Element 089 and resize to fit the entire width of the canvas. Position at the top of the canvas. Add DS.
Add Element 023 and resize to fit on the left page of the book. Use the Eraser tool to erase any part of the element which is outside of the page. Right click on the layer and select Blending Options, change the Blend Mode to Hard Light.
Add Element 019 and resize to fit on the right page of the book. Use the Eraser tool to erase any part of the element which is outside of the page. Right click on the layer and select Blending Options, change the Blend Mode to Hard Light.
Add Element 070 and resize to fit in the center of the book. Right click on the layer and select Blending Options, change the Blend Mode to Overlay. It should look like the Cheshire Cat is floating in the sky between the castle and the tree.
Add Element 008 to the canvas and resize to fit the width of the canvas. Position at the bottom of the canvas. The grass will slightly overlap the bottom edge of the book. Add DS.
Add Element 051 to the canvas. Resize and position so it looks like the ladder is leaning against the book and resting in the grass.
Add Element 036 in front of the ladder. Resize so it is in the center in front of the ladder. Add DS.
Add your Alice poser to the canvas. Resize her so she fits on the right side of the canvas. Position her so it looks as though she is standing to the right of the table. Add DS.
Add your Queen poser to the canvas. Resize her so she fits on the left side of the canvas. Position her so it looks as though she is standing to the left of the table. Add DS.
Voila! The focal point of your tag is now created.
Now decorate your tag with any of the beautiful elements from the kit. Resize the elements as you add them so fit the proportions of your tag. Experiment with rotating them and mirroring them for more variety. In addition duplicate elements and use multiple times to fill in holes and add more pizzazz. In this tutorial to indicate when I used more than one of the same element I will add (X#) by the name to indicate how many versions of the element I used.
Here are all the elements I used from the bottom layers up.
- Element 006
- Element 007
- Element 002
- Element 014
- Element 065
- Element 067
- Element 027
- Element 062
- Element 012
- Element 005
- Element 008 (x3)
- Element 069
- Element 072
- Element 066
- Element 079
- Element 060
Add your license and copyright info to the tag.

Save as PNG and go share with all your friends!
