GCD Studios + Graffix project

Hi all and happy Monday!

You are most probably here because you've heard about the great team up that Graffix and GCD Studios are doing. Well, let me tell you, from a designer standpoint it was a match "made in heaven"! I loved being a part of this duo and being able to combine the two very different products together to make something fun!

So for my share today, I will show this....

You Blew Me Away gift set

This set used Graffix's funky film and GCD's Carnival ride collection.
I wanted to make pinwheels out of the funky film. They exude fun to me and what better way to show that off than some pinwheels?
The set included a card, pinwheel pot and a small gift bag.

I adhered some funky film onto pattern paper having the solid background showing and then cut it out to make the pinwheels. I also used the same sentiment font on all three projects but in different sizes to create balance and consistency on all three items.


the small bag was cut out from the Cricut. I added stitching below the pinwheels to create the illusion of movement.


I also added some felt trim for all three projects for added texture.


Oh and I chose some straws to hold my pinwheels cause I liked the idea of how easy I can bend those straws to where I want the pinwheels to go.

So there you have it. Make sure you check out the rest of the DT shares today and for the next few days. I know I'd be checking them out for some great inspirations.

Thank you for stopping by!

Till next time,
Grace
