Supplies
Font of choice - I used Angelina here

“Memories” is a FTU (this week only) full size scrap kit created by Noshay Design. You can find the kit here and visit her blog here.

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

~♥~ Let’s get started ~♥~

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

Copy and paste Element 49 as a new layer.
Resize 25% and 50%
Using your Selection Tool set on Rectangle outline just inside the stitching.
New Raster layer below the stitching layer.
Copy and paste a paper of choice Into Selection.
(It looks horrid now but don’t worry, we’ll take care of that in a bit)

Copy and paste Element 56 as a new layer.
Resize 45 degrees.
Move into position - see my tag for reference.
(Again, it looks awful but we’ll take care of all of this mess in a while)

Copy and paste Element 23 as a new layer.
Resize 25%.

Tap the delete key until you have a nice feathered image to your paper.

Highlight each of the the element layers (NOT THE STITCHING LAYER!!) and tap the delete key to give each of the elements a nice feathered look as well.

El’s 67 & 68: Resize 25%
El 50: Resize 25%
El 54: Resize 25% and 70%. Duplicate/Flip Highlight the original/Duplicate/Free rotate right 90 degrees. Duplicate/Mirror
