For the Love of Coffee

For this tutorial you will need the following:

Paint Shop Pro, I am using PSP X, you should be able to use any version.

Tube of choice, I am using the artwork of Pinup Toons, which you need a license to use.  
He's now at CDO, but he was at CILM when I got my tubes.

Scrap kit of choice. I am using Morning Coffee by Amy Marie Scraps

Font of choice, I am using Auburn

Plugins: No outside plugins used

Just remember that my choices of papers and elements is just a suggestion, change it up and make it yours! You don't have to follow mine exactly.

Add a drop shadow of your choosing to tubes & elements throughout. I usually use 1, 1, 50, 5 unless otherwise noted.

Let's get started!

Open your template, shift D to duplicate, close the original

Change the canvas size to something around 900 x 850 pixels just to have extra space to work.

Delete Raster 1 & 2 layers & the word art layers

Fill the layers with papers, to do this make sure the layer you want to fill has been clicked on in your layer palette. 
Click inside the shape with your magic wand, selections, modify, invert, open your paper, copy and paste as a new layer, 
click delete on your keyboard.
Delete the original template layer

Some layers, you may just want to flood fill with a color from your kit. To do this, click on the layer in your layer palette, add another raster layer above it,
click inside the shape with your magic wand, and flood fill it with your color
Delete the original template layer

I used the following papers for each layer: 
Layer 1  use paper 21
Layer 2 use paper 7
Layer 3 use paper 5
Layer 4 use paper 7
Layer 5 use paper 21
Layer 6 use paper 3
Layer 7 leave white, just add a drop shadow
Layer 8 use paper 5
Layer 9 use paper 21
Layer 10 use paper 6
Layer 11 use paper 6

Now we'll add our elements. You can check my tag for exact placement
element 80 on right side
element 52 across the top, below the rectangle template layer
element 27, resize 55% arrange just behind the tube, on the left
element 31, resize 40%
element 23, resize 55%
element 24, resize 50%
element 22, resize 55%
element 35, resize 30%
 element 34, resize 60%
element 84, resize 60%
element 30, resize 50%
element 2, arrange behind the muffins, cups, coffee pot, etc
