Forever Young - Giftbag Gorgeous

This is the last of the Forever Young gift bag card sets and I am glad because I am ready to move on to something else.

Supplies Used:
Cricut Expressions - Forever Young cartridge, George
Core'dinations cardstock
Doodlebug flock
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

The mat the girl is on is from Elegant Edges. It was a little wider than what I needed so I resized it using the Gypsy. There are some great cuts on Elegant Edges and I can't wait to use some! I just chose a simple one for this since I wanted the Forever Young cut to be the focal point.

The white border is from Elegant Edges as well. They are some fantastic borders on there! And with using the Gypsy or DS I might never have to buy another border punch!

I was going to glitz up the gal a little but then I thought "who the hell is even going to care if she has a sparkle on her flower". Most of my friends that come to the Christmas party are not crafters so they don't notice the little details all you guys do.

Doodlebug flock was applied to the word "Gorgeous" the same way I applied glitter on the previous gift bag. Using the Xyron to do this makes it a lot easier than using glue and you get a more smooth application, at least I think so.

So I am off to new projects now. I think I am bored of just doing cards so it might be time to alter something....I wonder what I can find in my stash to alter!


  1. Another great bag. I haven't tried flock myself, but I love the way it looks. Can't wait to see what you show us next. Have fun.

  2. You did an amazing job with all of these. This one has wonderful colors and the girly is just so... "girly" lol. Love her Okie!

  3. First off...... I'm Jealous Cause I don't have Elegant Edges yet! But.... I DO LOVE this set more than yesterdays set! :o) So I guess it's ALL GOOD! Right? LOL All of the sets have been wonderful Okie! Can't wait to see what else you have planned! :O)

  4. very pretty! love the bag :-)

  5. Hi Okie
    Love all of your bag sets! I do have a question for you...when you buy your heat fix gems...what size do you buy? I don't know which to I buy them all? I dare ? If I can only buy one, which size would you suggest I start with?

  6. Hey fan from Canada, since I don't know your name that is what I shall have to call you! LOL They do combine shipping on their items Instructions to have them do it is in their listings. If you can only get one size I would either do the 4mm or 3mm. I do like the large 5mm and the small 2mm but find I use the 4 or 3 more.

  7. More great bag gift sets Okie. You have been busy.
    How do you like Elegant Edges?

    My youngest Son got me a gift card to Michael's for Mothers Day and I took it straight to M's and got Elegant Edges.

  8. Hi - I must have missed the part about the size of the bag. What page is the bag on in the Forever Young cartridge and what size did you cut it out at? Also, what size cards are you making to fit in the bag? I love your sets and I am doing some little gift sets up for a bride to give as thank you gifts.

    thanks for your response...


  9. I Love these!!! I've been wanting this cart for a while, thanks for all your inspiration!!!
