Moment by Moment with Antiquities

Hello everyone,

Denise here today with my final layout using the gorgeous Antiquities collection.


I’ve used the blue and mustard tones again with this layout as I love the combination of the two together.

To start with I used a sheet of the mustard side of Antique paper.

Antique - Antiquities Collection

I then used a punch down each side of the blue side of Heirloom paper.

After this, I drew a heart in the middle of the blue paper, then cut it out.  I embossed the heart shape  with  Distressed Dots Embossing Folder then went over it with Saffron Ink pad to show the dots more.

I had to cut the heart in half lengthwise in order to emboss it but I managed to hide the join with some embellishments !


To add some colour and texture I pierced down the left and right sides of the paper then cross stitched with some mustard thread.


I used one of my diamond stencils  with some Saffron Ink as I felt it echoed the diamonds  on the patterned side of Antique paper which I had fussy cut out to use on my layout.

Once this was done, I placed the heart in the middle of the yellow base paper and made sure it fitted inside the blue paper i’d cut it from. Once happy, I stuck them all down.


The next thing I did was to mat my 4×6 photo on to some paper from the Paper Pad and add to the layout.

I arranged the diamonds I had fussy cut from another sheet of Heirloom paper around my photo and across the layout and used Collectables to embellish and as a title, some were raised up on foam tape and some flat.

Finally I doodled around the edge of the heart with a Gel Pen

I hope you like the layout and feel inspired to have a play !

Happy Crafting
