“Christmas Fairy” is a tagger size scrap kit created by me, Bev of HorsePlay’s Pasture Designs and can be purchased from PSP Tube Stop.  You can visit my designing blog here.

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

~~ Lets get started ~~

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

Copy and paste El 48 as a new layer.
Click inside of it with your Magic Wand.
Selections/Modify/Expand by 4.
New Raster layer below the frame.
Copy and paste Paper 18 Into Selection.
Copy and paste El 23 as a new layer.

Click inside of it with your Magic Wand.
Selections/Modify/Expand by 4.
New Raster layer below the frame.
Copy and paste Paper 16 Into Selection.

Highlight the frame layer.
Merge Down.
Move this merged layer into position just above your white canvas and at the left side of the round frame – see my tag for reference.
Duplicate/Move to the right side of the round frame.

Copy and paste El 45 again.
Resize 40%
Free rotate Left 7 degrees.
Move into exact position in front of the round frame – see my tag for reference.
We’re going to add the elements below the frame.  Don’t worry about what overhangs it, we’ll clean that up in a bit.
El 26:  Resize 40%/Free rotate Left 7 degrees. Put it in exact position/Duplicate/Change the Properties to Multiply.
El 18:  Resize 35%/Duplicate/Resize 70%/Duplicate/Resize 70%/Duplicate whatever trees you like and position amongst the snow bank.

Once you have all the elements in position below the frame:
Highlight the paper layer that’s below the elements.
Click anywhere outside of it with your Magic Wand.
Highlight each element and tap the delete key.
Deselect.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer.

Add the remaining elements.  I used:

Open up the snow that I provided.

Highlight your working canvas.
Highlight the layer that is just below the tiled frame layer.
Paste - your snow layer should appear. 
Rename it S10 (short for Snow 10)
Don’t worry about what overhangs the frame.  We’ll clean that up in a bit.

Highlight the animated snow layers.
Highlight Frame 9.

Rename S9.

Continue to copy and paste all 10 snow layers onto your working canvas.

Once you have all snow layers copied and renamed on your working canvas highlight the paper layer (that belongs to this frame).
