Sounds like the layer is still a floating selection. If this is the case, you should see a layer at the top of your layers dialog the reads "Floating Selection (pasted layer) When you make the selection, (marching ants) you can use your regular copy & paste shortcuts. Ctrl+C & Ctrl+v After you enter Ctrl+v, just click the new layer button at the bottom of the layers window. This will put your selection on a new separate layer. This will also give you the freedom to move it around for placing it on whatever background layer you are using.
