“Totally Tiffany” is a PTU tagger size scrap kit created by Kissed by Pixie and can be downloaded from her store here. You can visit her blog here.
Thank you Pixie for such a beautiful kit. A real breath of fresh air!

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

~♥~ Let’s get started ~♥~

Open up a 700 x 700 transparent blank canvas.
Flood fill white.

Copy and paste Frame 5 as a new layer.
Resize 85%
Click inside of it with your Magic Wand.
Selections/Modify/Expand by 6.
New Raster layer below the frame.
Copy and paste 6 Into Selection.
Apply Mura Meister - Cloud:

Copy and paste Tree 2 as a new layer below the frame.
Move into position - see my tag for reference.
Tap the delete key.
Deselect for now.

Open up the snow animation that I’ve supplied.
Highlight Frame 1
Make your working canvas active.
Paste just above the cloud paper layer - rename Snow 1
Make the animated snow layers active.
Highlight Frame 2
Make your working canvas active.
Paste - it should be just above Snow 1 layer. Rename this layer Snow 2.
Repeat until you have all 10 frames pasted onto your working canvas.

Once you’ve done that, highlight your Frame layer.
Click inside of it with your Magic Wand.
Selections/Modify/Expand by 6.
Highlight each of the snow layers and tap the delete key.
Only keep Snow 1 layer open, close all the other snow layers.

Add your embellishments. I used:

Tree 1 again - Mirror

Go back into PSP.
Close out Snow 1.

Edit/Paste/After Current Frame.

Back into PSP.
Close out Snow 2.
Open up Snow 3.
Copy Merge.

Continue copying the snow layers one at a time, carrying and pasting them into AS.
