Mask of choice I am using Mask 237 by Insatiable Dreams found here
My supplies here 
Font of choice I am using Ephesus 
Add Drop Shadow as you go with your settings at 2, 2, 65, 15 

Let's Begin!

Open up a new image I like to use a tagger size of 460 x 460
Flood fill white
Open up frame 3 and right click, copy and paste as new layer, resize until you are happy with it. Then open up paper 15 and right click copy and paste as new layer, place the paper below the frame, then on your layers palette, click on the layer that your frame is on, then using your magic wand click inside the frame then go to Selections-Modify-Expand by 3, then click on your paper layer on your layers palette, then go up to Selections-Invert-hit delete on your keyboard-Selections-Select None (deselect) Now your paper should be inside the frame.
Now open up the tube from my supplies, and right click, copy and paste as new layer, place the tube below the frame layer but above the paper layer you just put. Duplicate your tube and place the duplicate above the frame layer. Now click on your frame layer on your layers palette, and then use your magic wand again and click inside the frame, then go to Selections-Modify-Expand by 3, then click on your first tube layer on your layers palette, and then go up to Selections-Invert-Delete-Selections-Select None. Your tube should be inside the frame her head and feet may be cut off, that's okay that is what we want, now click on the duplicate tube layer on your layers palette, and using your eraser, erase the bottom part of her feet.
Now add any elements you wish around your frame, making sure you copy and paste each one as a new layer. 

Now open up the confetti bubbles and right click copy and paste as new layer and place above your white raster layer, then go to Adjust-Add/Remove Noise-Add noise and have your settings like mine
Now open up paper 4 and right click copy and paste as new layer above your white raster layer on the bottom of your layers palette and then add your mask, invert your mask
Add your Name and copyright info

Follow below to the rest of the tutorial if you want to animate.
:Animation Shop:
Back in PSP close off the layers except the confetti bubbles layer, then right click copy merged and paste into animation shop as new animation, then go to Effects-Insert Image Effects and choose Rotate Colors and have your settings set like mine
 Then you will see there are 8 frames total, Select All frames and minimize for now, then go back to PSP and close off that confetti bubble layer and open up the white raster layer and the mask layer, right click copy merged paste into animation shop as new animation. Then right click copy, then right click paste after current frame, make 2 more copies this way for a total of 4 frames, then Select All frames, then right click copy then right click paste after current frame, now you should have a total of 8 frames. Select All frames, now open up the confetti bubbles you just minimized and right click copy and right click paste into selected frame on your background and mask layer. The confetti bubbles should now be on top of the white background and mask layer you brought over from PSP.

Now go back to PSP and close off the white background layer and mask layer and open up all of the other layers, then right click copy merged and right click and paste into animation shop as new animation. Make a copy then paste after current frame, make 2 more copies for a total of 4 frames, then Select All frames and right click copy, then right click paste after current frames, now you should have 8 frames, Select All frames, then right click copy and paste into selected frames on top of the bubble,white background/mask frames.
