Thank you Bea for a fabulous kit!.

This tutorial was written assuming you have a working knowledge of PSP.

Open up a 700 X 700 blank canvas.
Flood fill white.
Copy and Paste Double Heart Frame 1 as a new layer.
Resize 85%
Use your Magic Wand and click in each frame.
New Raster layer below the frames.
Copy and paste a paper of choice Into Selection or flood fill with a gradient of choice.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer below the frames.

Number of Pixels: 43
Tap the delete key until you have a nice feathered look.
Apply the Xero-Porcelain effect to your tube layer - default settings.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer.

Locket 2: Duplicate/Mirror
Key 2: Resize 50% Free rotate left 80 degrees. Duplicate/Free rotate right 15 degrees

In your layers pallet, highlight the paper layer (or gradient layer, whichever you did…)
Copy and paste Stars 2 as a new layer.
