1 Open a new transparent image 700 by 700, I always use a large workspace, you can always crop later, floodfill with white.
2 Open frame 1 from your scrapkit in psp.
3 Edit/Copy, Edit/Paste as a new layer on your working canvas and leave it in the middle
4 Take your magic wand and click with it in the first frame with these settings:

5 Selections/Modify/Expand by 8
6 Open one of the papers in your psp, I used paper4 and resize it to 600 by 600 and put it in the foreground of your materials palette.
7 Layers/New raster layer.
8 Floodill the layer with your paper.
9 Select none
10 Move this layer down, under the frame layer.
11 Do the same thing with the other framepart, make sure you select it all, you have to click a few times around the flowers to select it. I used paper3.
12 DON'T select!
13 Open one of your tubes in psp.
14 Edit/Copy, Edit/Paste as a new layer
15 move this in your frame, when your satisfied, Selections/Invert, and hit delete once on your keyboard.
16 Move the paperlayer and the tube layer under the frame layer.
17 Give the framelayer a dropshadow of choice, I used this

Horizontal: 2
Vertical: 2

24 Open the flower tubes from the kit, resize and put them on the tag. I put one under the second frame layer and one in front of the first part of the frame.
25 Open the tubes and put them on the tag where you would like them. It depends on the tubes you use how this will come out.. I had one sitting on the frame and one in front of it.
26 Give the tubes the same dropshadow
27 Open the pail3 tube, resize and put it in front of the second part of the frame.
28 Open the birds and the bow, resize them and put them on the tag.
