DD Inspiration Day #2

Hello!! Welcome to our week full of inspiration using Plate1430! Stay tuned all week for some amazing works in which the Viva Las VegaStamps! Design Team has utilized our "December Daily" plate.


Today I have two stunning posts for you!!
The first is by Aimee, a long time DT member for VLVS! and a lover of all things wiener dogs! Check out her super fun and FULL album:


Besides the December Daily plate, Aimee used stamps:Lighted Christmas Tree 12813

Other supplies: Tiny Attacher, tag punch, Graphic 45 chip board album, Glitz designs papers, Zip Dry glue, bling, ribbons, trims, Glitz embellishments, Prima wood buttons, Distress Inks, Memento inks, Adirondack inks, card stock, scissors, heat gun, colored pencils, Stickles, craft knife & glass mat (to trim card stock around the fancy edge), dies & die cut machine, letter stickers.
Next up we have Ellen!! Ellen has taken the December Daily plate and used in a Birthday Month Meandering Mini!!!
Besides the Plate1430 Ellen used:Miracle Tape - 1/8" and 1"
Other supplies : 12" x 12" Kraft paper, 7 Gypsies Paddington paper, Index cards, Vintage Photo Distress Ink
 Directions
Using the Kraft paper make  a 3" square Meandering Mini Album. (There are lots of YouTube Tutorial videos with great directions.) You will need to use the 1/8" Miracle Tape to attach the pages together.  
Cut  sixteen 2  3/4" squares of Paddington paper. Attach using 1" Miracle Tape to Kraft pages.
Stamp out numbers from the December Daily Plate onto plain paper. Cut and attach to Index cards. Add your Random Acts of Kindness.
For the cover cut two pieces of 3 1/2" square cardboard. Cover both front and back with paper and attach to Meandering Mini using the 1" Miracle Tape.
Decorate the cover and tie with leather ribbon from May Arts.
Enjoy giving gifts to strangers in celebration of your Birthday!
See!! Each day - new ways to use the plate! Leave a comment for your chance to own the whole plate! Come back tomorrow :)

Great job ladies! I should really get my December Daily done. I started it, but that's all the farther I've gotten... It's getting mighty close to December now...

Thanks for sharing...inspiring.I would love to make some mini albums for family and friends and these pics are giving me the incentive to make it happen. I will have to go hunting for some resources so the creative juices can flow. Love them!

Awesome mini's ladies! I have been somewhat intimidated at making a DD, but after seeing these, DeeDee's and several others, I may try to make a simplified version. Thanks for your inspiration!

Dog gone swell! It has been a long day so I'm really into randomness in all forms...including kindness!

Such wonderful albums - what a neat idea, RAK and that gold medallion 25 nearly knocked my socks off! I think I'll hit "cool" 25 times. :)

I am so loving this December Daily mini album. The meandering mini album is very creative. I can't wait to get my own kit.

Nice projects. And thanks for the little more detail on how to put together the second mini.

Diana Fernandez said...

Beautiful work! I love them!

Squiddy said...

Love the layering and colouring Aimee used, and meandering mini book... who meanders to Christmas - more like a runaway train, but a fun idea just the same.

I love that I'm getting inspired to do things differently from my same old style! :)
