Okay let's get started
Basic Rules for Templates

If you havent used a template before these are the basic rules I use.
Select a layer you wish to work with say Rectangle 1.
Use your magic wand to select inside and get the marching ants.
You can either add your new paper layer into selection, but it may change the size, shape etc of the paper pattern, 
the best way is to copy the paper and add as a new layer, resize to suit,
selections invert, then on the paper layer hit delete on your keyboard.
Then cross out the template layer you were working on.
Continue using your magic wand to select each layer of the template adding a paper of choice each time.


Open the Template
Open your Tube 
Open the Scrap Kit, I used CherryBlossom2, Paper1, Paper5, 
EyeletRibbon2.

On the Template cross out Ali's info, then resave the template as Shes My Best Friend
Just so we dont override the original.
Resize all layers by 85%
Image, Canvas Size, change the size to 650x650, we can resize later.
Layers New raster Layer, fill this layer with white, and move it to the very bottom.
I also didnt use the wordart, Loved.


Copy Paper1 and paste as New layer.
Resize to suit, once happy, Image, free rotate right 15 degrees.
Adjust Sharpness, Sharpen add a drop shadow.
Move the paper so it is sitting where the grey rectangle is.
Using your Magic wand tool, on the rectangle layer click inside the rectangle.
Selections Invert, then on the paper layer hit delete on the keyboard

Copy and paste Paper1 as a new layer, resize to suit.
Line it up so it will cover the large heart
Using your Magic wand tool, on the large heart layer click inside the heart.
Selections, Invert, then on the paper layer hit delete on the keyboard
select none.
Duplicate this layer and for the moment cross it out.

Repeat these steps for the little heart using Paper5
Once you are happy with all the template layers.
Paste your tube as a new layer. Resize to suit, add a drop shadow.
Apply plugin.
Plugin Xero Porcelain
Softness 50, Strength 128, Brightness 128,
Red Channel 0, Green Channel 0, Blue Channel 255, Ok.

Add your main tube as a new layer, place it on the frame in position.
Apply plugin.
Plugin Xero Porcelain
Softness 50, Strength 128, Brightness 128,
Red Channel 0, Green Channel 0, Blue Channel 255, Ok.
Add a drop shadow.

Copy and paste another tube, resize to suit, and place near the circle part of the heart.
Using your Magic wand tool, on the large heart layer click inside the heart.
Selections, Invert, then on the tube layer hit delete on the keyboard
select none.
repeat these steps to add another tube to the top corner of the heart.

Now open the duplicated heart we closed earlier and move your tube closest to the top of the heart inbetween the 2 layers.
Use you eraser to rub out some of the paper heart showing your tube.
I have done this so I can use different effects with the paper.
Change the opacity of this tube to 50% and the Blend Mode to Luminance (Legacy).
on the full paper heart under this tube change the Blend Mode to Luminance (Legacy).
On the erased heart above the tube change the Blend Mode to Screen.

Copy and paste the ribbon as a new layer, resize to suit, then once happy, Image, free rotate right 15 degrees.
Adjust Sharpness, Sharpen add a drop shadow. Postion on top of the black frame but under your main tube.
Add the Cherry Blossom, position and resize to your liking.

Now is the time to add the buttons etc and the word art. Add any other pieces to finish it off.

Add your name, and all appropriate ©

That’s it, all done.

Once happy with your creation
Resize all layers to your liking
and your done.
