Let Pinterest Inspire your G45 Projects!

G45_July 14_Wine_Tag

A while ago, we asked our Design Team to choose a pin from Pinterest to inspire a craft project. They really amazed us with their creativity! Today, Keri Sallee and Donna Espiritu show us amazing ways to let Pinterest inspire your next project. We love them!

We have a great giveaway this week on the blog. Who wants to wint this wonderful $70 gift pack of Raining Cats & Dogs? If you want to win, just comment here on the blog or on our Facebook page!


First, we have an altered wine bottle by Keri using Bohemian Bazaar. This is such a fun way to use your empty bottles. Enjoy this great idea!

"When I found out that our next assignment had to be Pinterest Inspired, I was totally excited...until I realized there was TOO much awesomeness on PInterest to pick just one!

So...I threw it out to my Facebook friends and asked what would they most like me to see. Overwhelmingly...this type of project came back:


I guess everyone thought I had a lot of wine bottles available? LOL.

My only problem was that most of the altered wine bottles on Pinterest fell in to 2 categories: (1) either really simple, which is totally not my style or (2) really boring colors.

I decided to rev mine up by using Graphic 45’s Bohemian Bazaar to keep it bright and summery."~Keri

"I got inspired by the banners in this card I saw at this Pinterest link: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/72902087693087950/

I mimic the banner by placing several papers cut as bunting pieces and that served as mat for my stacked photos and embellishments. I also have some chipboards in a string as banner. For added interest, I made a small album that stores smaller photos." ~Donna
