In addition to placing elements in different layers, grouping is a very important feature that helps you manage them together.
By grouping them, you can edit the size and position of the selected elements together. Their versions will be at the same scale, which allows you to pack them just as a new element for further creation.

After that, you can start your edition on the selected shape.
