My Daughter was born on Feb 14, 2010 and she is wonderfully healthy! Thank you for all the wonderful emails about everything. I just wanted to say that for right now since life has gotten so busy I am working mainly on tags and layouts. There will be the occasional tutorial but not as many as before. I am sorry if this causes any problems, but family comes first! I hope this finds all my followers doing well! Blessed Be! ~Lori

Wildest Dreams (Click for full size)

For this tutorial I have used the Kit Old Skool from Moonlight Laura's Creations which can be purchased HERE
Animation Shop (Trial of which can be found in my quick links)

  • First open Frame 5 apply a 5, 5, 100, 10 black drop shadow.
  • Next pick your internal background paper, I have used Paper 2
  • Paste into your frame layer.
  • This is where you need to make sure your paper is under your frame over in the layers pallette.
  • Using your freehand selection tool go around the frame. Invert Selection, hit delete on your keyboard. This should insure the yellow is only inside the frame.
  • **Keep in mind to make this easier to follow you will want to have everything under your outer frame from here on out unless stated otherwise.**
  • Open Groovyclipartcarsticker 2, resize 50% and place into the frame as desired. Drop Shadow
  • Open Groovygirlclipartsticker1, resize 50% and place into frame as desired. Drop Shadow
  • Open Discoball 1 and resize 40%. Place this directly under your frame layer (nothing in between) with a drop shadow.
  • Click on your Frame Layer
  • Merge Down. This should make your disco ball and your frame one layer.
  • Hide Frame/ball layer
  • Click on the layer right below your frame/ball layer
  • Merge Visable. This will give you only 2 layers in your pallette
  • Unhide frame/ball layer
  • Add all wording and copyrights as needed for your tag. Make sure the wording and copyrights are merged into one layer.
  • Now you should have a total of 3 layers.
  • Open Animation Shop
  • In PSP Hide all but the ball/frame layer
  • in Animation Shop Paste as a new layer, 'Ctrl Shift L' This will give you 2 frames.
  • Click on the first frame, and a blue and red box will appear, click right click on the lines
  • Insert Image Effects With the following settings:
  • This will give you 15 frames.
  • Back in PSP, Hide all but the BASE layer (background, VW bus and girl) Copy Merged
  • Paste into Animation Shop as a new Animation, 'Ctrl Shft L' until you have 15 frames
  • Back to PSP, hide everything but the word/copyright layer
  • Paste into Animation shop as a new Animation and again insure you have 15 frames.
  • On the Frame animation hit CTRL A (select all) and CTRL C (Copy)
  • On the BASE layer Hit Ctrl A and then CTRL E to paste into the frame, before you click to place it down make sure it is floating where you would like it. If you mess this up you can always undo the step and redo it again.
  • Now to the Wording layer. Do the same as above applying it above frame/ball layer and the BASE layer.
  • Run your animation
  • Save
