Cupcakes PTU Tut

This tutorial was written for those who have a working knowledge of PSP. 
Any similarity to another tutorial is purely coincidental.

:Supplies Needed: 
PSP X3 but any version will work
Animation Shop 
PTU Scrap Kit Cupcake Wars by Sinfully Creative Scraps by Crys found here
Tube of choice I am using Elias Chatzoudis found here and you need a license to use his work
Mask of choice I am using mask WSL 84 found here
Font of choice I am using Miss Le Gatees
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 paper 9 and resize to 500x 500 or the same size as your tag then right click copy right click paste as new layer

Then open element 34 (sprinkles) and right click copy and then right click paste as new layer. 

Then open up frame 3 and right click copy and right click paste as new layer, resize to your liking. Then open up paper 10 and resize to your tag size 500 x 500. Then right click copy and then right click paste as new layer under the frame. Then using your magic wand click inside the frame, then go to Selections-Modify-Expand by 5 then click on the brown paper layer on your layers palette and then go to Selections-Invert-hit delete on your keyboard then go back to Selections Select None. The paper should now be inside the frame and under the frame.

Now open up your tube of choice and right click copy then right click paste and place her below the frame but above the paper, then duplicate the tube and place the duplicate above the frame on the layers palette. Then click on the frame layer on the layers palette and then using your magic wand click inside the frame again and then go to Selections-Modify-Expand by 5 then click on the bottom tube layer on the layers palette and then go to Selections-Invert-hit delete on your keyboard-deselect. Then click on the top tube layer and using your eraser, erase the parts of the tube that are sticking out on the bottom of the frame.
Now add these elements and remember to paste as a new layer on each of them.

Now right click copy merged in PSP on your tag and then go to AS and right click paste as new animation. Then go back to PSP and using your free hand selection tool on the setting point to point, trace around the "C" on element 61, then go to Adjust-Brightness and Contrast-brightness/Contrast and have your settings on this:
Brightness: 43

then go up to Selections and click Select None
then right click copy merged on your tag and then go to AS and right click paste after animation, this is now your frame 2
Now go back to PSP and click the back arrow 3 times, then redo the same steps with the freehand selection tool around a different letter. Now you can go in order or in a random order. And then right click copy merged on your tag and then right click paste into animation shop after current frame. 
After you do all the letters you should have 9 frames total.
