Let's Rock this Tutorial!!

Open the template in PSP, using your shortcut keys on your keyboard (SHIFT+D) duplicate the template as a new image. Close the original.

Open papers 1, 8 and 9. Resize as needed. For example, when I look at the blue bar where it tells me what I've opened paper1, it tells me what percentage I'm viewing it at. For me it's usually 16%, so I resize to 16% bringing it to 100%. ( I hope that made sense!) Once you've done this, minimize for later use.
Go to circle layer and Select-All-Float-Defloat, add new raster layer and flood fill with color of choice from kit or tube. Select none and Delete original layer.

Go to dotted circle add graident glow of choice.

Open paper 1, copy and go to the frame background 1 and Select-All-Float-Defloat, add new raster layer and paste paper1 into selection. Select none and Delete original layer. Do this with frame background 2 using paper9 and frame background 3 using paper8.

Go to frame 1 and Select-All-Float-Defloat, add new raster layer and flood fill with a gold color, I used the one from the kit. Select none and Delete original layer. Do this with frame 2 flood fill with black and frame 3 flood fill with red.

Go to shape and Select-All-Float-Defloat, add new raster layer and flood fill with Black. Select none and Delete original layer. Add a fat red gradient glow.

Add male and female tubes of choice, making sure they are from the same artist. Put both inside frame 1, add drop shadow of choice. Duplicate each tube and place one in frame 2 and the other in frame 3, erase any left over tubing you do not want hanging out of each frame. Merge the two tubes in frame1, go to Effects~>Xero~>Porcelain: using these settings: 50-128-128-0-0-255. Go to the tubes in frames 2 and 3, Adjust-Hue/Saturation-Colorize using these settings: Hue:0 and Saturation: 0

Open flower and heart of choice, paste as new layers above frame 2 layers, resize and arrange to the top left.

Go to the very top layer. Open lips, lipstick and rose of choice, resize and paste (in that order) as new layers, arrange above the heart layers at the bottom right. Delete both hearts.

Open candle of choice, resize and paste as new layer, arrange to the bottom left.

Open wordart supplied, copy and paste, 'If loving you' above the gold frame, and 'is wrong...' on the right side of the gold frame. Arrange 'I don't' and 'wanna be right.' inside of the shape between the candle and lips. (or arrange to your liking, each part of the saying is on a different layer for this reason.) Add a medium red gradient glow and dropshadow of choice.
