Hi friends, Grace here to share with you a layout I made using the beautiful Lucky Charm line from American Crafts.
I love how the paper line had many geometric shapes. It was the perfect backdrop for a “boy” layout. I used the Epiphany Crafts Star and Banner punches with the epoxy stickers to add quick and easy banner that fits perfectly for this masculine themed layout.

1. After I had layered all of my background papers, I worked on the banner before putting my pictures. I wanted the banner to go from just under the photo on the left all the way to the right edge of the page. I used a big needle to thread some twine through the paper and then strung it to the right edge of the paper.
2. Next I cut up a piece of paper that’s about 1 ½” in width, folded it in half and then cut out the edges into a notch. I also punched out two pieces of paper into 1 ¾” circles, also folded in half and then placed over the twine with the twine going in between the fold. I placed some adhesive on the inside of the folded papers to close it. I also added some adhesive on the back of the papers to adhere them to the layout.
Then I used the Banner shape tool to create some more banner shapes that I added to the layout. I added two with epoxy stickers to create some dimension to the banner.
3. I then used the Star shape tool and corresponding epoxy stickers to create some dimensional embellishments throughout my layout. I made three of these stars to use as a visual triangle in my layout.
4. I punched out five more stars from different pattern papers in the Lucky Charm line and placed them on the top left corner of the page.
And here’s another look at the layout…
Thank you for joining me today and I wish you a wonderful crafty day.- Grace
