    The roof can be an Inchie cut in half or other shapes so long as it looks like a roof.”

    And here’s the inchie house description I used for my inchie house swap:

    “The house should be an Inchie (1x1). The roof should be the size of an Inchie cut in half on the diagonal.”

    And it’s always cute to add the optional smokestack.
    So the inchie houses stay one inch wide. But is it okay for the moo roof to be a little wider than one inch?

    And the cabinet cards didn't do so good in trades. They were approx 4 inches wide and any height to still fit in a business size envelope. They needed to be able to stand if just leaned against something.

    Linda, when we did them some moo roofs were wider than the moo and some were not. The inchie roof edges are wider than one inch though because the base of the roof is the diagonal.

    Inchie house examples from the Little House-a-thon two tears ago. I made the middle roof different because I didn’t care as much for exactness in the swap as for creativity. These are some I made.

    Cool thank you Rosecake, I made a Moo house but I trimmed the points off my roof because I wasn't sure.

    OH DOG HOUSES!!! that is something to add to the list.

    Nice photos posted so far.

    I agree the Cabinet cards are expensive to mail because they are so heavy.

    Hi Laffqueen, You will post in the thread and in the a-thon gallery. It can get really hard to keep the thread cards updated when they trade. Also when asked for a trade it can be hard to find all your cards in the thread. This way we can check the a-thon-gallery, but often a card in your available gallery may be requested too. it is fun

    We are not a bossy group BUT BOTH!!!

    so you can post two places in your gallery, and it is up to you. You can post in the art a thon part of the gallery and you can post in the available for trade part of the gallery.

    Since they updated the format on AFA it is much easier now to post all the cards in the Art a thon gallery and then transfer the ones that don't get traded to the Available for trade part of your gallery after this is over.

    It was harder before and you had to move each card individually.


    Since I have not made any yet, I would say I am undecided but I am pretty sure I will do the art a thon gallery and transfer the untraded later.

    Popping in to see what's going on... I never made any houses before, but I'm intrigued. Hopefully I can play a bit though. ^^

    chaosatlanta you are a natural house builder. You really need to join our 'on going house trade thread'. Lately it has been slow but we have a lot of fun there. You just do what you want when ever you are in the mood to make atc houses and trade.

    I took your idea CQ to do a school house.

    I also tried something new. The small piece on top is a piece of color core paper, run through an embossing folder, then sanded. It gave me the idea for this school house I had a piece of acrylic painted bristol paper. I embossed it then rubbed some gesso on it. When dry I lightly sanded it.

    All the little houses made with mixed media or collage are so cute! Are hand-drawn and painted houses welcome? I don't have a very big collection of collage ephemera But I would do more than just paint, I would add on some embellishments. I've never done these cards before, or an Art-a-thon for that matter. Just let me know.
