DIY Designed CraftOManiac bag for evo’12

I am so excited for the conference evo’12, and its just a little over a week away. Held up in gorgeous Park City Utah, hundreds of talented people, business’s, workshops, and lots of activities and fun. Yep’ I can’t wait!!!

I am also so LUCKY to have such an amazing company Canvas Corp. sponsor my ticket to evo’12. I have been a huge fan of Canvas Corp. and using their amazing, and darling products. It’s very important to have your business cards for conferences and events such as this. I also think if you can find other ways to promote and brand your site, go for it. I made a cute tote to carry around evo’12. I was able to create my bag using some Canvas Corp. products, as well as some other crafty products. 


Here are some pictures showing my steps to creating my bag.

Here are some of the products and goodies I had fun using and playing with. The yellow flower with pearls I made sometime ago and ended up using it.

 I started with a large plain canvas tote from Canvas Corp.

I was so lucky when I found that on my Sentimental’s Cricut Cartridge there was a frame that looked like COM! SQUEAL! I cut out the frame using heat transfer vinyl as well as the letters “C.O.M”. I pealed of the extra vinyl not needed, and ironed them onto the bag.

I then worked on making and dressing up some flowers for my bag. I absolutely LOVE LOVE THE tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Bahama Blue. I sprayed the mist all over a Canvas Corp. flower, and blotted the flower with some tissue. I LOVE IT!

I also used some Canvas Corp. fringe ribbon to roll into a rosette. I hot glued down every flower.

 I rolled two flowers using Ric Rac, also LOVE!

I cut the strap in the center and tied a knot and then added some Ric Rac and white fabric.

SO WHAT DO YOU THINK? DOES IT LOOK LIKE or REMIND YOU OF MY BLOG?
I have more work to do before evo’12 but its all so much fun.
Thanks for stopping in.
