Egyptian Princess

It time we shared a few Secrets with you, from the Secret Treasure Die Collection,

This is my sketch

Secret Treasures Layout

In this layout I've used quite a lot of yhe secrect treasure dies,

The first one is S.T. Honeycomb Strip, which I then seperated the strips, using pattern paper and 2 shades of cardstock, I also raised some of the S.T Honeycomb pieces with CC Foam Tape, for a little depth

Using the S.T. Classic Chevron, I've run it through CC Harmony Small Dot emboosing folder, and roughly sanded to two thinner Chevrons

As a photo mat, I cut 4 of the S.T. Perforated Mesh, and also cut out a set of S.T Bird Song to scatter around my layout

Cutting out several S.T. Party Banners, I've randemly place these in the top corner

Here I've placed the S.T. Palaroid Film Die cut, under my photo mats

And this is the centre of the S.T. Polaroid Film, embossed using the Harmony Brick folder,
and roughly sanded

I've used no special techniques in this layout, it's all about playing with these great new dies and embossing folders
Hope you have fun with the new Secret Treasures Dies

Stay Safe and Enjoy Your Day

Hi all, it's time for Couture Creations 2014 Design Team Call.

Had a ball last year, using all the wonderfull Dies and Embossing folders, so I'm going to through my hat into the ring again, and see if I can land another spot this year.
