Tezza, thank you so much for a beautiful kit!
This tutorial was written assuming you have a working knowledge of PSP.

~♥~ Let’s get started ~♥~
Open up a 700 X 700 blank canvas.
Flood fill white.
Copy and paste your tube as a new layer.
Place it in the center of your canvas.
Using your Freehand Selection Tool circle around your tube.
Number of Pixels:
Tap the delete key until you have the feathered look you want.
Duplicate your tube twice for a total of 3 layers.
Copy and paste Fluffy Stitched Heart as a new layer.
Duplicate/Mirror and move both hearts into position.
See my tag for reference.
Once you have the hearts where you want them, close out all of your tubes and the bottom heart.

Use your Freehand Selection Tool and follow along the stitching on the heart.

Move the tube so the face is centered on the heart.
Tap the delete key.
Merge down.

Tap the delete key until you have the feathered effect you want.

Merge visible the feathered layer and the heart.
Close that layer out.
