Open up frame 1, copy frame and paste it as a new IMAGE close the original  Make your canvas size pretty large here so we have enough room 
to work >image>canvas size>1600x1300. 

Open frame 2, copy and paste as a new layer on top of the first frame, rotate to the right 10 degree.
Add shadow:
V: 2 H: 0

Add your tube, I used the tube "Abigail" by Gemini Creationz Imaging. Grab the lasso, encircle her from the elbow up, 
copy and paste the as a new layer placing her under the frame layer near the left side of the tag *see my tag for reference.

Open the tube again , resize by 59% copy and paste the as a new layer placing her under the frame layer. 
Grab the lasso, encircle her from the ankles up and promote the section to a new layer, then send that layer to the very top.
*use my tag as a sample*

Add Shadow on separate layer
----------
V: 3 H: 0 
O: 100 B: 5

take the lasso tool again and cut off the bottom part of the shadow layer near her ankles.

Open proud american word art, grab lasso tool and circle the word "pride from the word art, resize by 71%, copy and paste the word art on the top layer,
placing it on the journal tag that is protruding out.

Crop down as close to the edges as possible without cutting anything off, 
**a great way to see where the edge of the sparkles or curves is to add a new layer on the very bottom and flood fill it BLACK. 
This way you can see the edges of anything a light color and cut off any portion that is sticking out beneath the frame.**
resize to 650 on the largest side.
[You can go smaller size on this if you prefer]
Add watermarks and copyright info.


For the name I used the glass filter
and then the gradient glow filter from Eyecandy 4000
settings here:
start with a white glow, then duplicate that layer add one more gradient glow but do it in blue,
Add the bright noise filter to this, I used DSB Flux settings here:
add a shadow.


Save and you are done!
If any part of your tag is blurry you can clear it up by sharpening the layer >adjust>sharpness>sharpen.
I hope you have enjoyed this tut.
