First Pony Ride Layout by Chris

The background is painted Caspian Sea Glimmer Glam on  the back of a piece of decorative paper that I just knew I would never use. The photo does not do the glimmer justice. It absolutely GLIMMERS!

I mounted a 5x7 photo on Echo Park’s Country Drive paper and used my Perfect Layers ruler at ¼ inch, distressed with the Zutter Distrezz-It, and inked with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. Another strip—yellow—was cut at 2.25x8.5 inches, inked with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink, and partially layered under the photo mat.

I made my own Washi Tape using the paper towel I had under my glimmer mist backgrounds project. I peeled apart the layers and backed it with Scor Tape, ripped off a piece, and voila—washi tape. (Great way to recycle, not lose a bit of glimmer mist, and get creative color combinations!) Along the top of the photo is a decorative edge (also from the background paper I had made a few weeks ago) cut with Spellbinders Shapeabilities Banner Basics Two.  I also cut a set of the larger banners and trimmed one off and edged it also with Peacock Feathers. The letters are from Echo Park and from my stash.

The best part of this simple layout is the card, which is coming soon to the Cutters Creek Store. Keep a look out for it and if you got one of the samples Kim gave out, play with it. It is so easy to do and adds a special touch to your cards or LOs. To see what is on my card you can either scan with your smart phone if you have the app, or you can go to the site: and enter the code that’s written below the scan square. Once you do you should see a short clip of Quinn riding the pony.

 I think I am in love with this product and will be trying it out on a few other pieces. To make it was also easy. You just need to enter the code that’s on the you are going to use and follow the directions. It was so easy to do.

  1. Chris I love your layout. And I know what you mean about the Glimmer Glam. It is so much prettier in person. And I went to view the pony ride and it was real easy to key in the sku # and watch the video. So darn cute your little one! Hugs, Fran

  2. I've never thought of using the glam for the whole background! Nice!
