Sweety has the permission of the tubers to use their tubes.
You can find the banners of these tubers in the left column of her blog, under the heading "autorisations"

some of the tubes Sweety uses were received in sharing groups
or found on the web
if one of them is your property, please let us know
a link to your site will be added
they are provided as « single-use » for this tutorial
you are not allowed to share or use them for another purpose.
you are not allowed to present them on your site, blog or forum
This tutorial is a personal creation,
any resemblance with another one would be pure coincidence

Thank you to the tubers for their great job
they make our creations possible

translator’s note : This translation is my property,
it is strictly forbidden to copy or distribute it on the Net
Thanks to Sweety for her kind permission
Sweety works with PSPX2, I work with PSP2018, but it is possible to use another version.
tubes without tuber‘s watermark are ALWAYS stolen tubes
Please respect the tuber ‘s work
do like me : choose tubes with a watermark and give credit to the tuber
Thank you !  have fun...

Hints and Tips
TIP 1 -> if you don’t want to install a font -->
open it in a software as « Nexus Font » (or other font viewer software of you choice)
as long as both windows are opened (software and font), your font will be available in your PSP
TIP 2 -> from PSPX4, in the later versions of PSP the functions « Mirror » and « Flip » have been replaced by -->
« Mirror » --> image -> mirror -> mirror horizontal
« Flip » --> image -> mirror -> mirror vertical

Material
decoration - selection

to prevent from the theft of tubes, they are not provided any longer
you will have to use your personal bank of images
prepare a landscape image - decorations -
translator’s note : I used one of my tubes (under the heading : "children" )
you can download it for free HERE
