Let's try an RR for Inchies.:jiggy:
4 groups,
3 players each
9 inches each group, that way each player gets three:wub:


Group#1...FULL
1. ScramperSue
2. Teri
3. Sandymutt

Group#2...FINISHED
1. ScramperSue
2. Robin
3. Stormarela

Group#3...FINISHED
1. ScramperSue
2. mrubyjean
3. Teri

Group#4...FINISHED
1. ScramperSue
2. Sandymutt
3. Bright-Spark

More instructions to come later.

OK, these are going postal. they are coming in a little baggie, they will be accompanied by another little baggie with chipboard inchies. Artist# 3 will attach the chipboard bkgds. to the inchies put all 3 names of the artist's on the back and send back 6 of the inchies to me, and keep 3. I will then send 3 to artist#2.

The reason we add the chipboard after they are all done, is in case artist #1-3 use a brad...the back would then be covered. Artist #3 can "edge" the inchies once the bkgd. is glued on if she chooses. metallic pens, or fabric paints, puffy paints, metal tape etc. are all good ways to edge.

They are starting as printed paper attached to CS, and I am adding 1 element---
*either a word or a letter, or a number
* or an image
* a brad or eyelet
* or microbeads
* or a flourish or other design

when you send these on, either reuse the chipboard I included, or send them inside a card.
thanks :)

Cool idea! This should be interesting and I would love to give it a try! Put me where you want me. If you have any extra spots I wouldn't mind a number 3 spot too.

I'm Game to play. I have never did any but sounds like they would be a blast to do. So put me anyplace you have room. I will play 2 groups if you have room:D

ScramperSue

ScramperSue

I'll be back later in the weekend with pics(hopefully) and the rest of the info.

Sandymutt

I'm excited and dreading the beginning of a new addiction...
Bring it on baby... hehehe...

So, here is the question, how do you display/keep your inchies?

ScramperSue
05-24-2008, 09:18 PM
check out this blog...there are others but this one was handy
http://scsinchieswaps.blogspot.com/ If you look thru into the older posts you'll see some of mine ( petuniascraps)

here is another with some displays: http://ellenhutson.typepad.com/inchie_inklings/
I am going to cover a cigar box with them and then put the rest of my collection inside it. I also use them on atcs and cards and in scrapbook L/Os etc.

this explains all about Inchies: http://www.inchiearts.com/

when they started inchies could be 1" to 1 1/2" squares if you do swaps you need to specify what size (these inchies will be 1") if they go over 1 1/2" they are then Deco squares. there are a group here at AFA swapping 2" deco squares calling them Twinchies :)

I looked at the sites and seen all the really cute inchies showing. Looking forward reading your info. on what we will be doing. They really sound like fun to do the mini works of art.:D:yes:

Going postal, please see the newly added instructions :)

Sandymutt

Well I think once I see them in person it will be much clearer as to what I need to do. Also is there a theme to them?

ScramperSue
06-03-2008, 12:52 AM
whatever 'theme" strikes you when you see them...basically the 2nd person will most likely set the theme

Sandymutt
06-03-2008, 01:08 AM
So would the 2nt player work on all 9 inchies so they would have the same things on them? Being you started all 9 base inchies are they all the same? Then the 2nt player would be leave room for the 3th player to add to all 9 inchies ? Do I have this right?

Robin

I received the Inchies today and will get those finished this weekend and sent on to Sromarela on Monday.

Sandymutt

Sandymutt
06-10-2008, 11:43 PM
Well I wanted to let you know I finished my inchies and will be sending them off to Bright-Spark this week. They were so much fun to work on. I will be looking forward to seeing what Bright-Spark will be adding. This is going to be fun to see how they turn out at the end.:cute::jiggy:

Bright-Spark

Group 4 arrived today from Sandymutt, and they look great as they are!!!

Plus, they are tartan, woo hoo! Well they look tartan to me, but that might be because I am Scottish...

I will have to get my thinking cap on.

ScramperSue
06-17-2008, 03:17 PM
woot! they are moving along :)

teri
06-17-2008, 07:51 PM
I finally have a day off tomorrow so I will get mine done....while I'm cleaning house, washing clothes...etc...lol

Sandymutt
06-17-2008, 10:38 PM
Oh I'm so happy the they got to you safe and sound Bright-Spark. I tryed to make sure to leave room for you to add some cool art to them. I can't wait to see what you come up with. I also love the started base of the inchies for our group too.;)

mrubyjean
06-20-2008, 07:26 PM
Sent my inchies on to Teri today!

Sandymutt
06-20-2008, 08:33 PM
Oh WOW! How cute, I love how your inchies turned out mrubyjean.

mrubyjean
06-21-2008, 12:26 AM
Thank you, sandymutt...it was a challenge working so small!

Bright-Spark
06-22-2008, 09:07 AM
Well, I couldn't add anything as artistic as Sandymutt, so I just added a small tartan 'rosette' as first prize....

I will get these off to you in the morning ScramperSue.

ScramperSue
06-22-2008, 09:58 AM
VERY cool Sandymutt and bright-spark...remember to keep 3 for your self margeux :)

mrubyjean, those are looking fun and friendly!! :D

Sandymutt
06-22-2008, 12:08 PM
WOW I love rosette you added. That just gives them the finished touch they needed. I can't wait to get mine and see them in person.;) This has been so much fun.:jiggy:

teri
06-23-2008, 03:46 PM
Inchies arrived today from mrubyjean! My set will be going out to Sandymutt tomorrow. I didn't do them exactly alike, just close. I figured if we all did them exactly alike we would end up with 3 identical inchies...I hope you don't mind. :unsure:

mrubyjean
06-23-2008, 03:56 PM
Good point, Teri! I didn't think of that.

stormarela
06-23-2008, 05:23 PM
Inchies have arrived here from Robin... they are tiny! I am used to doing chunky pages lately, and these look so small...
I have to think for a bit what to add, they are so cute already....

stormarela
06-24-2008, 10:19 PM
My first inchies are complete, and going in the mail tomorrow. The scanner doesn't pick up the pearlex....

ScramperSue
06-24-2008, 10:24 PM
OMGosh!! these are terrific!

Sandymutt
06-24-2008, 10:42 PM
Thats what I did on the ones I sent. I did each set of 3 just alittle different from the others . That way at the end hopeful everyone would pick one from each little group so we would have 3 cards just alittle different. Teri I will be looking forward to getting them. Can't wait to see what you did and to see what I can add to them. This is going to be fun:D------ WOW How cute stormarela. What fun Inches;)

teri
06-28-2008, 05:02 PM
I finally finished the set. I'll send them out on Monday. I hope you all like!

Sandymutt
07-08-2008, 11:33 PM
I wanted to let you know I got the inches from Teri and will get them worked on and sent off asap. That way you can finish up this swap. Its been a blast. These inchies are already cool the way they are.;)Looks like time in the theme and that is waht I will be going with. I will let you know when I have them finished in sending off.:cute:

teri

Question: How do we leave iTrader/reps for these? iTrader for Sue and reps for the rest or is it iTrader for all who worked on the ones I receive...or iTrader only to the person who mailed it to me...or...LOL So many possibilities, I don't want to screw it up... Does anyone know?

ScramperSue
07-09-2008, 04:20 PM

Sandymutt
07-09-2008, 11:28 PM
