Font of choice – Dragonfly here

 “Mari Mar” is a tagger size scrap kit created Cari of Black Widow Creationz  and can be purchased from HeartbeatzCreationz.  You can visit her blog here.  Thank you Cari for a fabulous summer kit! 
  
This tutorial was written assuming you have working knowledge of PSP. 

~~ Let’s get started ~~

Open up the template.
Shift + D.
Close out the original.
Open up the background layer.
Delete the top 3 layers and #2 layer.

Quick Note:
I changed the color of a few elements/papers to match the blue in the tube better.  The color I used was #2751a2 and will let you know in the tutorial what I have recolored.

Highlght #1 layer.
Click on it with your Magic Wand.
New Raster layer.
Copy and paste Paper 3 Into Selection.
Duplicate/Change the Properties to Overlay.
Deselect.
Delete the template layer.

Highlght #3 layer.
Click on it with your Magic Wand.
New Raster layer.
Copy and paste Paper 1 Into Selection.
Deselect.
Delete the template layer.
Give it a slight Inner Bevel:

Color Pallet:
Foreground: #000000
Background: #46678d

Highlight #4 layer.
Make your Color Replacer Tool active.
Double right click your mouse on the dotted line.
It should turn to a shade of blue.

Highlight #5 layer.
Click on it with your Magic Wand.
New Raster layer.
Copy and paste Paper 6 Into Selection.
Adjust/Add Remove Noise/Add Noise:
Gaussian and Monochrome checked
Noise: 58%
OK
Deselect.
Delete the template layer.
I recolored this paper layer.

Repeat the above step with:
#7, #9, and #11 layers

Copy and paste Paper 3 as a new layer over #6 layer.
Highlight #6 layer.
Click on it with your Magic Wand.
In your layers pallet highlight the paper layer and right click your mouse.
Choose “Promote Section to Layer” from the menu.
Deselect.
Do Not delete the template layer.

Move Paper 3 above #8 layer.
Repeat the above step.

Repeat the above step with #8, #10, and #12 layers.

Once you have done that you can then delete Paper 3 as you will no longer be using it.

To each square paper layer:
Duplicate the paper.
Change the Properties to Overlay.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer.
Position it in front of the squares – see my tag for reference.
Duplicate the tube layer and move it up slight.
Move it below the original tube layer in your layers pallet and position it exactly as you’d like it to be within the small squares.  You can even change the Opacity of the tube to get a better idea of where you want this tube.  Once you have the tube in exact position you’re going to promote it just as you did the paper:
In your layers pallet move the tube layer just above the papers that belong to #6 layer.
Highlight #6 layer and click on it with your Magic Wand.
Highlight the tube layer that’s just above the paper layer and right click your mouse.
Choose “Promote Section to Layer”
Change the Opacity of the Promoted layer to Burn and lower the Opacity to about 69.
Deselect.
Delete the template layer.

Repeat the above step with the remaining 3 squares.

Add your elements.  I used:
El13:  Resize 75%
El10: Use Pick Tool to flatten/Duplicate as many times as you like
El2:  Resize 85%
El 9:  I recolored this element

El 17:  Resize 15%
El 24:  Resize 60%

Apply the mask.
Merge Group.
I changed the color of this mask layer.
