Hi there! Monika Martinson here!
Hope you are having a great day so far and I´m happy that you stopped by. Before I go on, I would like to say a belated congratulations to Stacey, who had a birthday earlier this week. I hope you had the best of days and wish you many happy returns!
And, actually happy birthdays are sort of the theme for the layout I´m sharing today. Earlier this year, I gave myself an early birthday gift. I bought my self a second car! And as shallow as it may sound, it gave me and my family so many great and happy memories! The picture on the layout is taken on our last trip before it got too cold to go without the top on.

If you would like to recreate this layout here are the really simple steps:
Start by cutting your papers into size and using the Edgeabilities Classic Edges One on the edges. Use some Color Box Fluid Chalk (Dark Peony) on the edges of some of the papers.
After removing the cut shape, you can use a rub on with a sentiment inside the circle. Tip: if you do not have a sentiment that fits, you could use the space to journal or why not put a flower in the middle?
Use one of the patterned papers and cut only the edge die.
Attach the white lacy die cut to the patterned one with 3D dots in the middle.
Cut out the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Vintage Lace Motifs. If you don´t have a matching circle shape die to use in the middle, it is really easy to use the die to guide you while cutting with a small craft knife. Be careful though, not to cut in to the die.
All there is left now, is to glue the pieces together! Add a few stickers, the stamp and sentiments and you're done! I also slightly bent the paper around the Vintage Lace Motif to give it a 3D feel.
Thank you for dropping by!
