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 Ninaste at Beehive Studio which you need a license to use. 
This tube is called USA Pearl and she's a special layer of Black Pearl tube. For a limited time, you spend
at least $3 in the store and you can get her free!

Scrap kit of choice. I am using a PTU kit, Patriotic Pearl by Tiny Turtle Designs which was made to 
match this layer of the tube.

Font of choice, I am using Keyboard Patriot, I set the background red, foreground white with stroke
set on 2 for my name text

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: Raster 1, 6, 7, 8, 9
Change the canvas size to 950 x 850 to give yourself some 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, 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 for each layer
layer 1 use paper 1
layer 2 use paper 21
layer 3 use paper 47
layer 4 use paper 40
layer 5 use paper 22
layer 10 use paper 21
layer 11 leave as is

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, resize by 50%, arrange on the right

 Now add the following elements:

element 121 resize  50 arrange to the right of your tube
erase where his feet look like they're standing on her shoes

element 32 resize  45% rotate right 90 arrange behind the tube on the bottom right
element 30 resize  35% arrange above the blue heart
 element 20 resize  25% arrange on the left side of the template's star layer
element 168 resize  65% rotate right 12 arrange above the USA
element 36 arrange on left, duplicate & drag duplicate to the right
element 75 resize  45% arrange on top right, duplicate a few times and arrange around the tag
element 83 resize  35% arrange below USA & Statue Of Liberty
element 11 resize  15% arrange just to the left of the tube on the bottom
element 12 resize  20% arrange behind and to the left of the other cupcake
element 58 resize  30% arrange behind the red cupcake
element 55 resize 30% arrange behind the blue cupcake
element 64 resize  40% arrange behind the flowers
element 63 resize  20% arrange on top right
 element 66 resize  55% arrange just above the blue star layer of the template

crop and resize
add your copyright and credits as needed
add your text and save
