Welcome to Day 7 of your 12 days of Christmas freebies!!! Are you having fun yet?? 


I recently released a New Years kit called 2013 Party. And after any good party, you need an after party!!!! So that's what I have for you today :o) So let your hair down and get wild with 2013: The After Party!!! I'd love to see any tags you make with this!!

You can download this kit here or here

I just love Eugene Rzhevskii's and when I saw his latest Christmas girl I just had to have her! I made myself a timeline banner with her, and some of his other tubes. You can find his work at PicsForDesign here. Eugene's work should not be used without a license. Hope you like!

The kit I used for this banner is Bright & Beautiful Xmas by A Taggers Scrap here
The template I used is from Millie's PSP Madness here

For Day 4, I decided to make some of my old PTU kits freebies!!! Out with the old, in with the new, right? These are from when I first started selling--in fact, G Gurl Swag was my first PTU kit!!! It's kind of bitter sweet giving it away now lol.
Come by tomorrow to see where and what your next freebie is!!

Supplies:
Kit- Peppermint Winter by Sarah's Tags -N- Things here
Tube- iGirl by FourXDesigns here. This is a multi-layered tube. 
You must purchase this tube and have a valid license to use it.
Template- Temp 163-Leah from Gimptastic Tuts here
Mask- WSL_Mask 309 here
Font- Birch STD
Photoshop CS5 or program of choice
I'm on a Mac so when I use Command you may need to use Ctrl

Here we go :)

Open your template. Image>Duplicate, close out original.
Delete the credits layer. 
Working from bottom to top on the template-
layer 10- colorize to black
layer 9- place paper 4 above it, then right click and Create Clipping Mask
layer 6- add 2px white stroke, clip paper 8
layer 5- Filter>Noise>Add Noise 45%, Uniform, Monochromatic
layer 4- command+F to repeat noise
layer 3 & 2- clip paper 3
layer 1- add 2 px white stroke, clip paper 1
Colorize your word and word back layers to match kit and tube.
Add elements from the kit to your tag. From bottom to top I used:
25- clip to paper 1/layer 1
19
6
15
34
8
2
20
4
Add tube and drop shadows.
Now let's get our mask ready! Open your mask on a new canvas.
Add a new layer above it, and flood fill with color of choice, 
or use a paper from kit .
Make sure your mask layer is activated and Command+A to Select All, Command+C to Copy.
Activate the paper layer, hit Q to turn on Quick Mask mode.
Command+V to paste the mask..it should now be tinted red.
Hit Q to turn off Quick Mask mode and there should now be marching ants on your canvas.
Hit the Add Layer Mask button at the bottom of the layer palette (rectangle  with the circle in it)
Right click- convert to smart object
Right click- Rasterize layer
Drag completed mask to your tag canvas as the bottom layer
Resize it if needed.

With your Rectangular Marquee Tool (m), draw out a selection around the entire
tag, just slight smaller than the canvas. Image>Crop.
This will get rid of any stray pixels or drop shadows you don't see.
Image>Trim>Top Left Pixel Corner to remove the excess space.
Add your license and copyright info to the tag.
Add name and any other text of choice.
Merge, save as PNG and enjoy :)
