Lets Begin :
Always remember that you are not only limited to use what elements are in my tutorials, you can put any of the elements from this kit onto your tag, so play around with them & have fun!! 

Start by opening your Template 34, Now go to your layers pallet & delete the following layers :
Background, Square 2 & Border 2, 
Also delete the Credit layer AFTER you have left a thank-you on the designers blog.

Now Open Paper 10 from the kit (or a paper of your choice)
In your layers pallet make sure you are on the last layer - Then copy & paste your paper as a new layer - Then in your layers pallet, move your Paper layer down so that it is the last layer in your layers pallet.

Now apply a mask of your choice.

Once you apply your mask, go back to your layers pallet, right click on your mask layer - click Merge, then click Merge Group.
Now using your move tool, move your Mask on your canvas so that it is in the upper left corner behind your template. Then in your layers pallet, right click on your mask layer - then click Duplicate. Go to Image - click Flip Horizontal. Then using your move tool move your Duplicated mask to the upper right corner behind your template.

Now in your layers pallet, right click on your top mask layer - click Merge - then click Merge Down.
Then right click on your newly merged Mask layer - click Duplicate.
Go to Images - click Flip Vertical. Then use your move tool to position your duplicated Mask to the bottom of your template. (See my tag for reference if needed)

Now in your layers pallet - click on the layer titled "Pink Circle"
Go to Selections - click Select All
Go to Selections again - click Float
Go to Selections again - click Defloat

Now open Paper 6 - Copy & paste your paper as a new layer - then go to Selections - click Invert.
Then on your keyboard, press your delete key 1 time.
Go back to Selections & click Select None.
Go to your layers pallet & delete your ORIGINAL "Pink Circle" layer.

You will follow the steps above for EACH layer of your template. I have listed below what papers from my kit that I used :
Black Oval 1 Layer - Paper 12
Black Oval 2 Layer - Paper 11
Grey Rectangle Layer - Paper 9
White Rectangle Layer - Paper 2
Circle Border Layer - Paper 10
Black Circle Layer - Paper 1 (I re-sized this paper to 80% before clicking Invert)
Square 1 Layer - Paper 12
Square Border 1 Layers - Paper 8

Now lets add some elements :

Open your Girl 1 element - Copy & paste it onto your canvas as a new layer - re-size to approx 80% (or to your liking)
Go to Effects - click 3D Effects - Click Drop Shadow - adjust your settings to your liking. click Ok.

Now open your Unicorn 2 element - Copy & paste as a new layer onto your canvas - re-size to 50%, using your move tool position your Unicorn element to your liking, now apply your drop shadow. Use the same settings as you used for your Girl element.


Now in your layers pallet - click on your Square 1 layer - Go to Selections - click Select All, Float - Defloat -
Open Girl 3 - Copy & paste as a new layer onto your canvas, re-size to 80%, then using your move tool, position your Girl 3 element within your marching ants. Once you are happy with placement, go to Selections - click Invert - then on your keyboard press your delete key 1 time.
Go to Selections - click Select None.
In your layers pallet make sure your Girl 3 element is between the Square 1 border & Square 1 layers.
Now at the top of your layers pallet - change your Blend Mode to Luminance (L)
Now in your layers pallet - click on your Square 1 Border layer - then right click on that layer - click Merge - then click Merge Down. 
Now right click on your newly merged layer - click Merge - then click Merge Down.
So your 3 layers should now be 1.

Once you are happy with placement of both of your grass elements, go to your layers pallet - right click on the TOP Grass layer - click Merge - then click Merge Down.
Now you can apply a small drop shadow to your Grass element if you would like.
