Scraptastic Store - Serendipity by Dear Lizzy

12x12 layout Dear Lizzy Nancy Damiano Scraptastic Club Store

DESIGNER | Nancy Damiano COLLECTION | Dear Lizzy’s Serendipity STORY | Every time I look at this photo of my son with his baby girl cousin, I can actually hear her squealing “Nicky”. This is the one nickname that my son absolutely detests. No one but baby Stella is allowed to call him this. He gives her a pass because she has a hard time saying Nicolas and she gives him the droopy lip when he corrects her. Documenting this sweet understanding that they have is what the page is all about. DESIGN |  Since the focus of the story...

Heartbeats Kit and Add-On

12x12 layout December 2014 Heartbeats Nancy Damiano

As soon as I opened the Heartbeats Kit and Add-on, the first thing that struck me was the great mix of embellishments – wood veneer alphabet, puffy stickers, metal clips.  What’s not to love! I started this layout with the idea that I would use a good mix of all the embellishments and try to center all (or most of the elements) down the center of the page. All of the color here is in the center of the page, highlighting the 4x4 photo. I added machine stitching to the white lines in the patterned paper for texture. The puffy...

Scraptastic Store - Maggie Holmes Open Note

12x12 layout Nancy Damiano Open Note Scraptastic Store

DESIGNER |  Nancy Damiano COLLECTION | Maggie Holmes’ Open Note STORY |  This layout focuses on the journaling – that was the jumpstart for the entire design. I’ve been thinking about social media and privacy lately. Do I have the right to put my son’s story out there for public consumption? My thoughts, reasons, humor and rationalization are here in an open letter to my boy. DESIGN |  I was immediately drawn to the large bull’s-eye print from the Maggie Holmes collection. How to use it and strike a balance between keeping enough of the large pattern so it could...

This Life Noted December

December 2014 Nancy Damiano This Life Noted

I just completed my first year memory keeping with the This Life Noted kits. This project has changed many times over the past 12 months, including sizing down to a 6x8 format album. The one thing that hasn’t changed though – recording the little (and big) things that happen throughout the month. I found that I like to start the month off with a bold, enlarged photo. It sets the tone for the month and highlights my favorite photo. I wanted to use the 2x2 page protector as a window of sorts. I kept it simple by adding a vellum...

Scraptastic Store - Frozen with a Side of Merry

12X12 layout Christmas December 2014 Elle's Studio Nancy Damiano Scraptastic Store

  DESIGNER | Nancy Damiano COLLECTION | Elle’s Studio Good Cheer STORY | I call this photo ‘frozen with a little side of merry’. I think it perfectly represents our winter last year (brutal) and trying to make the best of it. By Christmas we’d been hit with several snowstorms and our poor lawn penguin was covered. I wanted to remember that this was the snowy Christmas and how much my son was loving it! DESIGN |  I let the penguin lead the design here. He’s bold, and so were my color and pattern choices. I based the page on...
