You are my Sunshine with Nancy Damiano

Hey there! Nancy here today with a bit of a hybrid layout. I started out by creating this layout of my son and his neighborhood friends. This told the story of why we love where we live right now. The group of boys that can be found playing in our yard is a big part of why we stay here. This was an important part of our story as a family!

While I love the layout, I didn’t have room for some of my favorite pictures through the years. The photos weren’t technically great (bad lighting), but something I wanted to document and remember. The solution – half traditional page, half project life spread!

EllesStudio-NancyDamiano-YouAreMySunshine02SUPPLIES: Sunny Days 6×6 Paper Pad, Little Moments 12 x 12 paper, Elle’s Studio Exclusive July Kit, Sunny Days Puffy Stickers, Sunny Days Journaling Tags, Sunny Days Wood Veneer, True Story acrylic, Captured Stamp, and Wood Veneer Camera.

I used the Sunny Days collection and the July kit to create this side by side spread. The layout side includes some hand stitched hearts that add a nice handmade touch, sprinkled with the beautiful puffy stickers from Sunny Days and the wood veneer camera from the July extras. Some scattered words and stamping complete the cascade of embellishments.

The project life side is pretty simple. One card is embellished with a puffy sun, a die cut and some stamping. I filled one pocket with the veneer camera and dressed it up a bit with a puffy heart sticker from Sunny Days and some enamel dots. That adds just the right amount of color!

  1. Loveeeee these! LOVING those hearts!!!!!!!!!!

  2. This is just brilliant. I love how Nancy journaled in two places on the layout. I may have done that once and now I’m wondering why I don’t do it more often!! I shared this with the students of my journaling class (in our FB group) as an example of great design for journaling (shared the link to the post as well). Thanks for having such stellar design work here to inspire us all!
