Open the template and expand the canvas size to 669X669 and flood fill the bottom layer with white.
From the kit, choose 7 of the papers. I also chose the red glitter doodle and the boom! word art.
Start by merging the "like" items together. the brown circles, the pink circles, the squares, etc... until everything is merged in twos (or fours in the case of the 4 small hearts).
Next, choose a paper to place on the bottom layer above your white background and resize it to 668x668 and apply your mask. LAYERS: MASK FROM IMAGE... find your mask and make sure you uncheck "Invert mask data" if it's checked. Merge Group.
Now, you are going to apply your next paper above the first set of circles, click on the circle layer (this should be just above the mask layer) and SELECT:FLOAT:INVERT. Click on the paper layer above and hit the delete button on your keyboard, unselect all, then merge down. DO THIS FOR EACH LAYER ABOVE UNTIL EACH PART OF THE TEMPLATE HAS A NEW PAPER LAYER.
Next, add this drop shadow to the individual heart and stars layers:
Then, merge your circle and square layers together and apply the same drop shadow.
add the glitter doodle behind circle layers and the word art on the top layer like mine. Select the wordart frame, float and fill with a color from your tube.
Add the following filter to the word art layer:
Add your tube and your drop shadow:
