"Christmas by the Pond" is a tagger size scrap kit created by Susan of TootyPup Scraps and can be purchased from any of her stores here.

This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of PSP.

~♥~ Let's get started ~♥~

Open up the template.
Shift + D.
Close out the original.
Image/Canvas Size:
700 x 700
OK
Highlight Raster 1 layer.
Flood fill white.
Delete the credit layer.

Highlight Raster 2 layer.
Click anywhere outside of it with your Magic Wand.
Selections/Invert
New Raster layer.

OK
Deselect.
Delete the template layer.

Highlight Raster 3 layer.
Click on it with your Magic Wand.
New Raster layer.
Copy and paste Paper 8 Into Selection.
Deselect.
Delete the template layer.

Highlight Raster 5 layer.
Merge Down.
Raster 4 and 5 should now be on the same layer.
Click anywhere outside of it with your Magic Wand.
New Raster layer.
Flood fill with #d5bd21 
Apply the same Noise Effect.
Deselect.
Delete the template layer.

Highlight Raster 7 layer.
Click on it with your Magic Wand.
New Raster layer.
Copy and paste Paper 9 Into Selection.
Deselect.
Duplicate
Mirror
Merge Visible these 2 rectangle papers and rename "Merged Rectangles"
Delete Raster 6 and Raster 7 Template layer.
Copy and paste Snow Tree 01 and Snow Tree 02 as new layers just above the merged rectangles paper.
Resize each 60%
Lower the Opacity of each to 36
Move both tree layers into a position you like
Highlight the Paper layer.
Click anywhere outside of it with your Magic Wand.
Highlight each tree layer and tap the delete key.
Deselect.

Open up the snow that I provided.
Highlight and Copy Frame 10.
Highlight your working canvas.
Paste as a New layer.
Rename Snow 10

Back to the snow layers.
Highlight and Copy Frame 9.
Highlight your working canvas.
Paste as a new layer (just over Snow 10 layer)
Rename Snow 9

Repeat the above step until you have all 10 snow layers pasted on your working canvas.

Highlight the Merged Rectangles layer.
Click anywhere outside of it with your Magic Wand.
Highlight each snow layer and tap the delete key.
Deselect.
Lower the Opacity of each snow layer to 36.
TIP: Keyboard shortcut - Ctrl + Y - it repeats your last action.  So change the Opacity of the first snow layer to 36 then highlight each snow layer and press Ctrl + Y on your keyboard.  It saves a heap of time!

Close out all snow layers but keep Snow 1 layer open.
