Thank you Artmama for one fantabulous kit! Sweet!

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 Embellie 48 as a new layer.
Click inside with your Magic Wand.
Selections/Modify/Expand by 4.
New Raster layer below the frame.
Copy and paste Paper 9 Into Selection.

We’re going to add the embellishments that go below the frame.
Embellie 14
Embellie 40: Resize 60%

Highlight the paper beneath the frame.
Click anywhere outside of it with your Magic Wand.
Highlight each element layer and tap the delete key.

Close out your white canvas.
Merge Visible.
Reopen your white canvas.
Duplicate the merged layer.
Free rotate left 5 degrees.
In your layers pallet move beneath the original.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer.
Move the two merged layers and your tube into position - see my tag for reference.

Copy and paste Embellie 40 again.
Using your Freehand Selection Tool outline the flowers you want to use to place behind the top of the frame. I used the flowers on the right:

Once you have them outlined, Copy and Paste onto your working canvas.
Move into position - see my tag for reference.
You can duplicate as many times as you like.

Add your embellishments. I used:
Embellie 39
Embellie 36: Resize 60%
Embellie 2: Resize 70%/Mirror
Embellie 25: Resize 70%
Embellie 46: Resize 30%/Free rotate Left 25 degrees/Duplicate/Mirror/Duplicate/Resize 90%
Embellie 3: Resize 40%/Duplicate/Resize 70%
Embellie 5: Resize 40%/Duplciate/Resize 70%
Embellie 4: Resize 40%

Highlight your white background.
New Raster layer.
Copy and paste Paper 12 Into Selection.
Apply the Mask.
Merge Group.

Add your credits.

Add your name.
Give it a slight Inner Bevel:

Resize all layers 80%

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
