Animation Shop. This is from CNET, so it's a safe download. However, it costs. That changed pretty recently. I don't know why!!
HOWEVER ..... a LOVELY person named solshne (and another named Chris) wrote to let me know that one might find Animation Shop for free at this location. This is an FTP link and I have no idea if it's safe or not. So keep your antivirus handy to scan it after download!
A tube of your choice. I'm using the glamorous artwork of Jennifer Janesko. You must have a license to use her artwork. You can get that license and art at C.I.L.M.
The scrap kit is by Artmama of Artmama's Studio. This is a FTU kit, called I've Got A Feeling. As always, leave thanks for the freebies!
Filters: Eye Candy 4000 > Marble, Eye Candy 4000 > Gradient Glow
Font: I used Estranged 2.
Supplies: No outside supplies used in this tut!
Open a new canvas, 700 x 700, white.
Open elem03. Copy and paste as a new layer.
Add your tube. Resize, position, and drop shadow to your taste.
Highlight your elem03 layer. Grab your magic wand, and click inside the center of the "frame." Selections > Modify > Expand by 1. Selections > Invert.
Highlight your tube layer. Grab your eraser brush and erase any of the tube that overhangs the bottom of the "frame."
Selections > Select none.

Open paper 04. Copy and paste as a new layer.
Again, highlight your elem03 layer. Grab your magic wand and again, click inside. Selections > Modify > Expand by 10. Selections > Invert.
Highlight your paper 04 layer. Hit delete. Selections > Select none.
Open elem29. Copy and paste as a new layer. Position it more to the top left of your canvas (I alwasy find this easier to do if it's the top layer, then I drag it down.) Duplicate this layer. Image > Mirror. Merge these two layers down. Duplicate that layer. Image > Flip. Move your elem29s (LOL) until you like the arrangement. I moved the top one down and the bottom one up. Up to you! Merge these layers down. Drag this layer down below your paper layer.
Effects > Eye Candy 4000 > Gradient Glow set on 3-0-100, color white.
Go to your top layer. Open elem13. Copy and paste as a new layer.
Effects > Mura's Meister > Copies > with the following settings:
Hit okay. Bring this layer down BELOW the combo elem29 (doodle) layer. Drop shadow.
Go back to the top layer and add your name. I used color #c04b27 for the fill and #a118db for the stroke, stroke set at 2.
I then added a Gradient Glow in white, same as we did above.
Drop shadow your name.
Resize your canvas to a size with which you are comfortable.
Add your copyright, license information if applicable, and taggers'/watermark.
If you choose not to animate, you're now done, and you can merge your layers and save!
