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. Resize canvas size to 800x800. You will crop and resize later. Close the original.

Open papers 3, 14, 21 and 23, minimize for later use.

Go to Background layer, Selections-All, add new raster layer and paste paper 3 into selection. Open your mask, Go to Layers-New mask layer-From Image. From you scroll click on the arrow for the Source Menu and highlight your mask image. Making sure Source Luminance is clicked, click ok. Merge Group.

Open any one of your Circle frames from the kit, resize 75 percent. copy and paste as a new layer and arragne above the black circle. You may erase the ribbon sticking out from the top if you like, like I did.

Go to the black circle layer, Selections-All-Float-Defloat, add new raster layer and paste paper 14 into selection. Selections-None, delete original layer.

Go to small thin rectangles, Selections-All-Float-Defloat, add new raster layer and paste paper 21 into selection. Selections-None, delete original layer.

Go to frame background, Selections-All-Float-Defloat, add new raster layer and paste paper 3 into selection. Add tube of choice arrange to fit inside the three frames. Go to Selections-Invert and hit the delete key on your keyboard. Selections-None, delete original layer.

Duplicate the tube, resize to fit inside the heart. Go to the heart layer, Selections-All-Float-Defloat-Invert and hit the delete key on your keyboard. Go to Adjust-Hue and Saturation-Colorize making sure both are set to 0. Go to Effects-Plugins-Xero-Porcelain using these settings: 50-128-128-0-0-255.

Open paper pedal 1, resize 50 percent 3 times. Copy and paste as new layer, you may need to resize a tad bigger. Arrange over the tube in the heart. Delete original heart layer.

Go to the long thin rectangles, open ladybug bars01, go to Image-Rotate right. Copy and paste as a new layer, arrange over the long thin rectangle on the right, duplicate layer, go to Image-Mirror, you may need to slightly arrange just a little over to fit the long thin rectangle on the left. carefully erase any of the ladybug bar that is hanging over the long thin rectangles. Delete the origianl layers.

Go to the frames, Selections-All-Float-Defloat, add new raster layer and paste paper 21 into selection. Selections-None, delete original layer.

Open ribbon heart04, resize 50percent 2 times. Copy and paste as new layer. Arrange to the left of the frames at the top.

With your magic wand, clicke inside the heart. and any open spaces around the ribbon on the inside of the heart. Go to Selections-Float-Defloat-Modify-Expand by no more than 3. You may still have to very carefully erase some of the paper hanging over the ribbon heart. Arrange this layer below the ribbon heart. With your text tool set to 2peas Blessings or font of choice, using color ##7a1816, type saying of choice. Convert to raster layer and add a very small drop shadow.

Add any other elements of choice.

If you want, you may use the Alpha provided with the kit as I did. Just open the Alpha you want to use, with your selections tool set to rectangle, draw a rectangle around the letter you want to use. Copy, go to original image, paste as a new layer, resize and arrange to liking. Continue this with each letter until you have the name spelt out.

Crop and resize to liking.
