Funnel Cake Digital files, how to video tutorial

I was asked by a few people to share a tutorial on how I made the California Insert on my Studio Calico Penny Arcade spread using the digital files of the Funnel Cake stamp addon. So I sat down and figured out how to a screen grab video tutorial for you all. I figured it would be much easier to explain if I showed it this way versus a step by step with photos.

Please forgive the newness of this for me, its always hard to capture what you want to say when a blinking red record button is staring you down so hopefully you can follow me and it makes sense.

This first video is showing how to work with the files using Photoshop Elements.  I'll show you exactly how I created the piece I made for my insert in this video.

This second video is showing you how to work with the files just using your Silhouette Studio program.  I'll show you how to trace and remove the states you might not want and how to create your own background layer for cutting.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask below in the comments or if you came over from Studio Calico you can leave any questions on the message board post too.

I did mention the two digital classes being offered over at Studio Calico in the first video. They are a great resource for expanding your knowledge of Digital Scrapbooking so if you would like more info on either of those you can find the Digital Basics class here or the Beyond Digital Basics class here.
