Supplies Needed:
Tube of choice, I am using Alexander McMillan found at SATC
Scrap kit The Red, White Blue by Tasha’s Playground, a FREEBIE found at PFD
Template 85 by Pooker
My supplies (word art) here
Baseball or Softball (should have it with PSP tubes already)

Open the template, duplicate and close the original. Delete the copyright and word art. Resize all layers by 85 percent. Resize canvas by 700 x 700. Flood fill background layer with white.

Select the black circle, go to Selections - Select All - Float - Defloat.

Copy and paste a paper above the selected layer. Resize paper if desired and position to your liking, go to Selections - Invert and hit delete on the keyboard. Delete the template layer and apply a drop shadow.

Repeat the above steps for the remaining template layers. Skip over the small stars though, we will be deleting them later. I used the flag as a paper for the small circles in the upper and lower hand corners, you may choose to use something else.

Copy and paste the tube as a new layer, place in the center of the template. Resize if needed and apply a drop shadow.

Open Star 3, resize by 20 percent, sharpen. Copy and paste as a new layer, place over top the star in the upper left hand corner. Apply a drop shadow. Duplicate and place in the lower right hand corner. Delete the stars template.

Open Firework 3 and Firework 2, resize both by 40 percent. Copy and paste both fireworks as a new layer. Place both in the upper left hand corner to your liking, duplicate both and place on the right hand side about half way down the tube.

Open Stars, using the Selection tool select out a few of the stars you like, copy and paste as a new layer. Place around the template. Apply a drop shadow. Repeat this as many times as you like.

Open the word art There is nothing soft about a softball, copy and paste as a new layer. Place on the outside of the big circle. Apply a drop shadow or gradient glow if desired.

Open the word art Play Ball! Copy and paste as a new layer, place at the top left inside the large circle, duplicate and place in the bottom right of the cicle, see my tag if needed. Apply a drop shadow or gradient glow if desired.

Open the word art Superstar. Copy and paste as a new layer. Place on top of the strip next to the arrow on the left hand side. Duplicate and place next to the arrow on the right hand side.

Copy and paste word art Are you brave? Place at the bottom of the template. Apply a drop shadow or gradient glow.

Add a new layer above the white background, make a gradient out of two colors from the tag. Flood fill this layer with the gradient, apply the mask to this layer. Delete the mask layer and merge group. Resize if needed.

Add any copyrights and your name. Crop, resize if desired. Save as a PNG (close background first).

Thank you for trying one of my tutorials, I hope you have enjoyed yourself and I look forward to having you back here again! I would love to see what you have created.
