1. Open an image, select the part you want to use (I usually use the rectangular marquee tool holding down the shift key on the keyboard to have a perfect square), copy it (ctrl c), open a new document (ctrl n then click ok), paste it (ctrl v), resize it to 100x100px.

2. Add a New Fill Layer: Layer –> New Fill Layer –> Solid Color… write ffe0fa in the color palette; set this layer to mode: Soft Light;
