Here's how I do it. Make a duplicate of the frame. Put one over the picture and one under. Make sure the frame OVER the picture is selected and erase the part of the frame that is over whatever you want to pop out (the head, for example). I hope that makes sense! Alternately, you can make a duplicate of the picture and put one over the frame and one under. Then just delete the background around the head and everything that goes over the frame. Let me know if you have any questions.
I cut out the part I want outside the frame plus a little so it overlaps into the frame and copy and paste it so that layer is on top of the frame. Then I crop the original pic to fit in the frame. Does that make any sense? I don't feel like I said it very well.
On the picture I used the lasso tool to select her head from about the bottom of the eyes up even though the frame hits above the eyes, this keeps you from seeing any of the frame between the cut out and pic. Zoom in real close so that you can select it fairly accurately. Once selected, I usually have a 1 px feather, then copy and paste and make sure it is aligned exactly with the original pic. Put the frame layer between the pic and the cut out. Then crop the pic under the frame. I usually run the blur tool around the very edge of the cutout where it's over the frame and above it to hide any slight flaws. I hope that helps.
