♥ Let's Begin! ♥
Open your template and Image > Canvas size > 1100x1100. Then, flood fill the bottom layer white and delete the copyright layer.
Merge your sparkle 1 & 2 layers into one layer. Merge your tiny hearts layers into one layer.
Delete the other heart layers. These are the hearts on either side of the circle layer.
Open Bonus paper 2, re-size by 25% and change out the circle and the rectangle layers with the paper. Delete the original layer.
Open your tube and add above your circle layer. Duplicate and move this layer to above your sparkle layer. Hide for now. On your circle layer: Selections > Float > Defloat > Invert > Click on Tube layer > hit delete > Select none.
Open paper 4, re-size by 30% and use this paper to change out your glitter circle and rectangle layers. Add DSB Flux Bright Noise of 30% and mixed on both layers.
Using your preset heart shape, draw out a heart large enough to cover the back of your design, convert to raster and send to the bottom. Move above your mask layer.
Open paper 5, re-size by 35% and apply your paper to the heart. Erase the bottom and then duplicate. Flip your duplicate and then merge the two layers together.
Use the mosaic settings below to add the extra pop then Use your deform tool to work it the way you want it. I pulled mine closer to the template and then pulled it out at the sides.
Open paper 8, re-size by 25% and then flip. Replace the tiny hearts layer with the paper. Delete the original layers.
Now that the papers are complete, let’s move to the elements!

Open Candilicious Jar, re-size by 20% and add below your candies 2 layer.
Open Candilicious Flowers 2, go to your circle (Template) layer, re-size by 55% and then add. Drop shadow and use your eraser to remove and extra flowers that hang outside of your design. Duplicate, flip, mirror then merge the two layers together.
Open your choice of lollipops. Re-size them by 35% and add them above your sparkle layer. Use your deform tool to turn one of them.
Open Candilicious Bicuit 2, re-size by 30% and add above all layers.
Open your bow of choice and re-size by 40%. Drop shadow and then use your deform tool to tweek it to your liking.
The final touch! Go to your gumdrops (candies) layer and duplicate. Mirror it and then move it above your cakes in a box layer. Position it so that it hides the empty space and then erase what is hanging out below the bow.
Crop your design as close as you can to the mask layer, re-size by 50% and save.
