Forever Young - Giftbag Posh

This is the third back of the Forever Young gift bag and note card set. I decided to mix it up a little and go vertical with the paper instead of horizontal *okie thinks she so loves to live on the edge somtimes*.

Supplies Used:
Cricut Expressions - Forever Young cartridge, George
Core'dinations cardstock
Doodlebug Glitter
White flowers misted with Glimmer Mist
Patterned paper My Minds Eye Simply Delightful
4x5 notecard
Hot Fix gems
White Signo gel pen
Cat Eye Chalk Ink

I actually got up off my lazy butt and looked to see what the patterned paper was that I have been using for the sets. I think I should have made the circle bigger but I am cheap and wanted to get 4 out of one sheet of paper, little did I know I was going to end up another sheet of paper for the small circles on the note cards! *okie gives herself a V-8 smack on the forehead*

After cutting the word "posh" I ran it through my Xyron and then sprinkled Doodlebug glitter over it.

The belt on the girl did have a flower but I decided to use a small Prima flower and use a small hot fix gem in the middle.

I had white flowers and used Glimmer Mist on them to color the flowers. I found that you have to have some patience to let the flowers dry because if you layer them too soon they will bleed. Luckily I found out quickly and was able to get them away from one another to dry and it didn't really mess them up. I think I will be trying some more of these flowers!!


  1. I thought I liked the last one the best but this one is even better!

  2. Another great bag. I don't know how you keep coming up with all this awesome stuff, but I love it. Keep 'em coming.

  3. Okie these are great! I never thought about running them through the xyron and then adding glitter! What a grand idea! Thanks for that!

  4. For some reason I like this set the best so far.... I like the cut on this one... seems more stylish maybe? Anywho... I gotta get back to my card making....but you know I had to stop by and look! :o)
