Question about Photoshop Elements 6

I'm new to the digital scrapbooking world and I have Adobe Photoshop Elements 6. I've done some basic things with it but ahve found some neat embelishments, paper, and fonts etc. that I would like to use but I'm not sure how to get whatever I have downloaded into Photoshop. Someone suggested I click and drag from the file to what is open in Photoshop but that just opens a whole new item and doesn't place the embelishment on the project I am currently working. Can anyone direct me to a website that will show me how to download these properly? I'm not srue if I need to save the fonts, embelishments etc. into a folder in Photoshop or not.

I hope I am making sense. Thank you ladies for your help.

i know what you're talking about.. but unfortunately I"m new to PSE 6 so I'm learning myself. I'm not sure how much help I'll be, but what i do is open everything I plan to use , (pics, papers, elements) and minimize them (so they will all be at the bottom of the screen in thumbnails) and then I create a new blank layer and click and drag the thumbnails from the bottom onto the background (new layer). You may have to play with the layers some - I have done some playing around, but I have so much to learn. I don't know if this was helpful or not, but I thought I'd take a stab at it.

You need to open the element/paper, and have a new bank page open (your 'canvas'). Use the tool that looks like a mouse pointer and click on the element, then drag it on to the blank page. Not sure if this is clear, but here's a tutorial that really helped me...
