Let it Snow FTU

This tutorial was written for those who have a working knowledge of PSP. Any similarity to another tutorial is purely coincidental.

:Supplies Needed: 
PSP X3 but any version will work
Animation Shop
FTU Pink Snowflakes Scrap Kit by Cinnamon Scraps found here 
Tube of choice I am using Pinup Toons and you need a license to use his work found here 
Mask of choice I am using Mask 212 by Insatiable Dreams found here 
Snow animation in my supplies found here 
Font used for my name is Gisselle
Add Drop Shadow as you go with your settings at 2, 2, 65, 15
Let's Begin!
 Open up a new image I like to use a tagger size of 461 x 461 
Flood fill white
Open up frame 1 and right click, copy and paste as new layer, then go to Adjust-Add/Remove Noise-Add Noise-Uniform and monochrome checked and noise intensity set at 50 %. With your magic wand click inside the frame and then go to Selections-Modify-Expand by 8, then open up paper 6 and right click, copy and paste as new layer, place paper below the frame.

Open up pink snow banner and right click copy and paste as new layer under the frame but on top of the paper. See my example above.

On your frame using your magic wand click inside the frame then go to Selections-Modify-Expand by 8, then open up your tube and right click, copy and paste as new layer and place her under the frame but above the paper, then go to Selections-Invert-Delete-Select None

Add any other elements you want just making sure you copy and paste each one as a new layer. If you would your snowflakes to look like mine just Add Noise with the same settings as you did the frame above.

Open up paper 16 and right click copy and paste as new layer then add your mask, invert your mask
Add your name and copyright info

If you want to animate your tag follow below to the rest of the tut.

:Animation Shop:
Open up the snow from my supplies and you will see there 10 frames, highlight all frames by holding down the Ctrl key and the letter A, then go to Animation-Resize animation- and your settings set at this: Pixel size 319 x 319, your frames should still be highlighted, minimize for now.
Then go back to PSP and close off all layers except for these:
the white background layer,
your mask layer,
your paper in the shape of your frame layer
your tube layer
the pink snowflake banner layer
and your copyright info 
Right click copy merged and paste into animation shop as new animation. Then right click, copy and paste after current frame, repeat this til you have a total of 10 frames. Highlight all frames. then open up the snow animation that you just resized and remember they should still be highlighted, right click copy and paste onto your tag, center on the tag just right.
Then go back to PSP and close off those layers you just moved into AS, and open up the rest of the layers, right click, copy merged and paste into animation shop as new animation. Right click, copy again and paste after current frame; keep doing this til you have a total of 10 frames. Then highlight all frames by holding down the ctr key and the letter A, and then right click, copy and paste onto your tag. Making sure you center it just right.
