New Releases - Halloween

New releases - Halloween

Today my The Digital Press store. I'm starting the re-release of several Halloween themed products. Which to many may be new releases.

Starting with Boo Card. I love making card to just let people know you're thinking of them.

This card template includes:
- a standard layered (psd & tiff)  hybrid card template,
- a layered version so that you many cut out each vertical strip and the ghost after decorating that can be printed and cut with cut files in your digital cutting machine.
- cut files (svg & dxf) for cutting with a digital cutting machine on paper of your choice.
- png versions of all templates and pieces for tracing with cutting machines that don't use the file types above.

Next up, one of my all time favorite things I've ever made, Pocket Cuts: Halloween.

These Halloween themed pocket scrapbooking cards, sized 3x4 and 4x4 for pocket scrapbooking or card making use. Also works well for half fold (4.25 x 5.5) card making.

This product includes:

- cut files versons in: dxf and svg for digital cutting machines

- 3x4" and 4x4" sized png files for use in digital layouts or for tracing with digital cutting machine software that do not use svg or dxf.

Here are just a few of the projects by my Creative Team and the CT at The Digital Press has made with these products: 

Thank you so much for letting me into your mailbox. Till next time, Happy Hybriding!!

DigiScrap Parade August 2016

Hello and Welcome to the SandyPie Creations blog.

I'm so happy to be a part of the August 2016 DigiScrap Parade route, thank you for stopping to check out my contribution.

If you are following the parade route from start to finish,
you should have arrived here from

Creations by Jill or (alt site)

and your next stop will be 

Meagan's Creations

If you get lost along the way, simply head back to the 
main DigiScrap Parade site
to view the master list and get back on track.

If you haven't seen my designs before here's a little information about me and where you can find me:  

My YouTube channel has tutorials for my projects and beginning hybrid (please consider subscribing)

My store at The Digital Press

SandyPie Creations newsletter (again, please consider subscribing)

I'm so happy to be a part of the DigiScrap Parade route again, thank you for stopping.

Now on to my contribution:

My contribution is a card that can be put together a couple of different ways.

First, there is the standard hybrid card version. The layered template can be decorated with Photoshop or Elements by clipping papers to it, then printing. First time using a hybrid template? Here's a video to get you started with hybrid templates, using Photoshop or Elements.

Second, there is also a version that you can decorate the template with digital papers and then cut the individual pieces out to assemble on a card base printed on your paper that has guides or a 4.25 x 5.5" card stock card base. This template is mostly simple cuts that can be cut by hand or with the cutting files using the print and cut method. First time using Print and Cut in the Silhouette software? Here's a video I made to show you how.

Third, a version with the cut files separated out for each color and shape, most likely to be used with printed scrapbook papers and cardstocks.

I'm probably doing a terrible job explaining this, so I've made a video to explain what I mean.

I hope you all enjoy my contribution. Any questions, feel free to email me at sandypiecreations at gmail dot com or you can drop by my Facebook page.

Thank you again for stopping by!! Happy Hybriding!!!

Beginner's Guide to Hybrid Scrapbooking Templates

Hello and Welcome to my Beginner's Guide to Hybrid Scrapbooking Templates. 

I've created a series of videos to (hopefully) demystify hybrid scrapbooking with layered templates and setting up your creations to cut with the Silhouette Studio software and digital cutting machine.

In the first video we will start with the basics of using a hybrid template. 

Using Photoshop Elements:

Using full Photoshop/CC2015:

Then we will take that project and open it and set it up with its cut files in Silhouette Studio (the basic edition):

I hope these videos help get you started in the wondrous world of hybrid scrapbooking.

Please feel free to leave your questions here or on the videos in YouTube. Or you can email me sandypiecreations at gmail dot com.

You can always find me on my Facebook page or in my Facebook Group.

If you're interested in purchasing the cutting file and template used in the video you can find it and all my products at The Digital Press.

Thank you so much and Happy Hybriding!!

Publisher's Picks Jan 12-14, 2016

Hello All!!

It's Publisher's Picks time again at The Digital Press. Publisher's Picks run Tuesday through Thursday and all are 50% off.

I'm doing something new at The Digital Press. I've split the digital PNG cards from the SVG/DXF cutting file version. And changed (lowered) the price. (No use buying something you're not going to use. Right?) Before the Publisher's Picks discount they are only $.50 per card!! Can't beat that for a cutting file price. And now, through Thursday, they're 50% off!

Here is a closer look at everything you'll find in the Publisher's Pick section this week.
Pocket Cuts: I Heart You (Cutting Files DXF & SVG)

Pocket Cuts: I Heart You (PNGs)

I hope you'll come by and see us at The Digital Press. Check out the forums and challenges too. Did you know there are two hybrid challenges each month at TDP?

Thank you so much for stopping by, see you soon!!
