Open your template. Delete the following layers: CR, 12, 11, 10, & 9. Set the canvas size to 750 x 589. Now resize all layers by 80%.

Merge together layers 1 & 2; 6, 7, & 8.

Replace each layer with the following (remember to resize all papers by 22% before you replace the layers):

1 – PP13
3 – PP7
4 – PP9
5 – PP2
6 – PP5

Now let’s add our elements. All elements will be placed above the top template layer:

Hearts – resize by 13%. Place over the 3 squares.
Key – resize by 6%. Place slightly to the left.
Nest – resize by 12%. Place to the upper right corner of the very first square.
Branch – resize by 14%. Place to the top of the squares.
Henge – resize by 15%. Place to the lower left corner of the first square. Duplicate, flip horizontal, & place to the upper right corner of the third square.
Scatter2 – resize by 12%. Place to the right. Duplicate, flip horizontal, & place to the upper left.
Tree – resize by 20%. Place to the left side of the third square.
Fence – resize by 19%. Place to the bottom.
Grass2 – resize by 6%. Place to the bottom left. Duplicate, then place to the bottom right.
Flower4 – resize by 8%. Place to the left side of the third square. Duplicate, place to the bottom left, towards the top of the fence.
Frame2 – resize by 6%. Place to the lower right.
Bird – resize by 10%. Place along the top of the fence, just below the branches of the tree.
Flower3 – resize by 6%. Place to the bottom right. Duplicate & place to the bottom left.
Crates – resize by 12%. Place along the bottom left of the frame.

Sheep – resize by 8%. Place to the bottom right side of the plant.

Open your tube then resize slightly if the tube is extremely large. Paste as a new layer above the squares layer. Place over the third square. Duplicate, flip horizontal, then place over the first square. When you are satisfied with the placement, merge the two tube layers together. Duplicate your tubes layer, gaussian blur, 3.00. On the squares layer, select all, float, defloat. On the original tubes layer, selections, invert & press delete. On the duplicate tubes layer, press delete. Deselect.

On the original tubes layer, set the blend mode to overlay, 100. On the duplicate tubes layer, set the blend mode to screen, 100.

Open your tube again, resizing as necessary. Paste your tube above the bucket layer. Duplicate your tube, gaussian blur, 3.00. Set the blend mode to overlay, 75.

Add your name, copyrights, & license info. Apply a drop shadow of choice to your layers, then merge visible. Objects, align, center in canvas.

Open your mask & PP12 (remember to resize your paper). Paste your paper as a new layer. Apply your mask, merge group. With your pick tool, stretch the top & bottom edges of the mask layer so the you can see it. Duplicate, flip horizontal.

Merge visible, then save as a PNG.
