Overlays in Sony Vegas?

Is there any other way to do them besides just putting a luminance mask or lowering the opacity on the top clip? That's the way I normally do it and it never looks the way I'd like it. I've also been trying to figure out how to get some of the overlay effects like the ones in this video by BethanyJill. Any ideas? :) 
Thanks,
Fig.  

EDIT: Okay, I've looked through some of the posts on here and it seems like I'm wanting to mask? And I tried masking with Pan/Crop but I don't have a Mask box to check? There isn't anything under Position? Maybe it's my version of the program? I'm using Sony Vegas Movie Studio 8.0. Help?
