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 Molly Harrison (Moondance) which you need a license to use. 

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, called Beautylicious by Scrappin' With Lil Ole Me 

Font of choice, I am using Ani Lazy Day

Plugins: No outside plugins used
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, CR, 12, 11, and 10
Resize the template 75%

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

layer 1 use paper 5
layer 2 use paper 5
layer 3 use paper 6
layer 4 use paper 19
layer 5 leave as is
layer 6 use paper 18
layer 7 use paper 19
layer 8 leave as is
layer 9 use paper 19

Make the center circle layer active, selections, select all, float, invert,
copy and paste your tube as a new layer, arrange over the circle, take your eraser tool, erase the pats that hang over the bottom

Now we'll add our elements, check my tag for exact placement reference
element 48 resize  25% arrange on the bottom right, duplicate 3 times and arrange across the bottom
you may want to mirror one or two
element 92 resize  35% arrange behind the flowers on the left, duplicate & mirror
element 21resize  30% rotate left 35 arrange on top right, duplicate & mirror
element 56 resize  35% arrange in flowers, in between layers duplicate & mirror
element 23 resize  15% rotate right 35 arrange in the flowers, duplicate, drag up to top right corner, duplicate & mirror
element 11 resize  15% arrange on left

Copy & paste paper 5 as a new layer above the white background
apply your mask
crop and resize
add your copyright and credits as needed
add your text and save
