This tutorial is written as if you have a general knowledge on how to use the program.

***What you'll need***
Program of Choice.
I am using Photoshop CS5
But, if you know your tools you can use any program of choice

You must purchase a license to use his tubes and can do so HERE

I am using the scrapkit “Rock Me” by Designs by Sarah

~*~*~ Let's Get Started~*~*~

Start a new canvas
600px by 600px
Flood fill with white.

Open frame 4
Add to your canvas
Resize down by 80%
Add a drop shadow

Open pp4
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas
Use your magic wand to select inside the frames
Select → Modify → Expand, by 5
Invert the selection
On the paper layer press delete
Filter → PhotoEffex → Scanlines
All at default, width set to 2
Change the blend mode to soft light

Open frame 1
Add to your canvas
Rotate 90 degrees counter-clockwise
Resize down by 70%
Rotate -15 Degrees
Add a drop shadow
Flip Horizontally
Reposition on the canvas to your liking

Open pp1
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas just above the white background layer
Apply the layer mask here

Open your tube
I did recolor my clothing, the ipod and the hair streaks to match the kit a bit more
This is optional as well, there are plenty of colors that'd look good with this kit!
Add your tube to your canvas, resize and reposition to your liking
Filter → Blur → Gaussian Blur, 3.0px
Change the blend mode to soft light
To the bottom tube add a drop shadow

Add your tube in between the two pink paper layers
Resize and position as you'd like
Erase any that's outside the frame
Change the blend mode to luminosity
Lower the opacity of them to 50%

Now add which elements you'd like
I used the following from the bottom layer up with a drop shadow unless stated:

star 2 (no drop shadow)
star 2 (no drop shadow)
print 1 (no drop shadow)
ribbon 2
string 2
ribbon 1
disco ball
music note 1
bow 3
flower 3
flower 2
flower 4
rock word art (add an outer glow)
bow 2
bow 2

Add your name

Crop your tag to get rid of the access space that's not needed

Resize if you'd like to

****Most Important****
Add your copy right information

If you're happy with your result save to your liking and you're done!

Now if you want to animate!

Open your animation that you're using
Crop the image so only the right notes are showing

Select all the frames
Click Ctrl + G
(this just groups the layers and makes the more easy to move and what not)

Now drag this over to your main canvas
Have it just below the ipod layer
Hide all the frames aside from the first one

Got to your animation window
Have it set to repeat forever, the delay set to .1 seconds

Add a new layer and hide the first animation frame and unhide the second
Add a new layer and hide the second frame and unhide the third
Do this for all the frames
When you're at the last one just reverse the process to make it loop

Once you're done, press play to see it in action
If you're happy with the results save as a .gif and you're done!
