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 Ismael Rac (Winter Glamour) which you need a license to use. 

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, Peaceful 2014 by Scrapjoy 

Font of choice, I am using Scrap Script

Mask: WSL84 by Weescotslass Creations

Plugins: No outside plugins
I do use Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow on all my copyrights/credits layers
I do this because some forums will make a .png tag show up with a black background and then your
copyright doesn't show.

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 and close the original
Delete the following layers: info, font info, social, butterfly, white word art, layer 18 drop shadow,
butterfly outline, top wings, bottom wings, trail, rust circles, raster 7

Change the canvas size to 900  x 850 pixels so you have room to work

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, like the frames, 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

Click inside the inner blue frame with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 4, invert
Open your tube, copy and paste as a new layer, arrange in the frame, take your eraser tool and erase
the parts that hang over the bottom of the frame layer

Add the following elements:
element 21 resize 45% arrange below tube layer on right
element 29 resize 75% arrange on bottom right, duplicate a few times, mirror a few, 
arrange across the bottom, merge all these branches together
element 47 arrange on bottom left, between the branches layers and the tube, duplicate & mirror
element 48 arrange below the branches, duplicate several times and drag across so they show all the way across under the branches, merge these flower layers all together

Add paper M2 above the white background
apply your mask
