261  Re: Beginners inchies swap (SU 16th Dec 2010 - 15th Jan 2011 SO 16th Feb 2011) in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by LimeRiot on: December 29, 2010 07:22:29 PM
Crafting question.

I love the inchies and ATCs that have a piece of paper with words then a stamp or small picture on top.  Is or can it be done with modge podge?  If not, how is it done?  The colors they add...stamp ink painted on?  Just wondering so I can stretch beyond the basic...

Thanks in advance!

I did these inchies using modge podge. I tore out some pages from Othello, modge podged them to watercolor paper and then painted over the top of them.

I used one of the squares for the owl in the upper left but for the bottom one I just used rubber cement to glue the pages on.

I've become totally obsessed with inchies since joining this swap and have already tried out several techniques Smiley.

In looking at google images on inchies, I got the impression that the only real requirement for an inchie is that it be a piece of art that is 1" x 1".  Is that correct?

That's my understanding too, gamemom. I've seen some fabric inchies and also somy polyclay inchies. I think they can be made of anything really.

Such a wonderful gallery! Everything is just plain awesome. Some of my recent favs...the potholders and jacket quaggy made are amazing! I adore that Amy Butler purse - such a lovely shape and fabric. I was waiting for a gourd to show-up in murbeck's gallery Smiley. It's a great one! I also totally love the stuffed goat. I want one!

Thank you, missmoppet, for organizing such a fantastic swap! It's been so much fun Smiley.

I know that InShambles has been under the weather so I'm going to go ahead and throw some pics up of the days she wasn't able to post Smiley.

I honestly don't really remember what order they were in but here they are...

wrist warmers

knitting kit + appliqued tote bag

Siamese kitty pillow

skull wall quilt

camera bag

I crafted my first "ME" project Smiley.

Inchies with my soon-to-be last name...

I'm not entirely sure how I'll display them. I might line them up on some cardstock and and then frame them or I may just string them on a ribbon and make a little banner. We'll see!

I got mine from Alpha Stamps. If you click here and scroll down, you'll see the inchie frame set.  Smiley

Thank you! I've purchased a set of frame stamps Smiley. I really like the idea of framing 12 of them together too. I think I'll do a set for my kitchen.

Here are some more inchies I made for a personal swap...

I'm just having so much fun with these!

265  Pillows for Crafty Cat People in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by LimeRiot on: December 26, 2010 10:23:40 PM
I made these pillows for two recent swap partners. The first was for my partner in the Mini-Xmas swap who is a Siamese cat lover. The second was for my partner in the Mini-Halloween swap who loves black cats. I cut the designs out of felt, stitched them onto the fabric and then sewed them up using a simple pillow cover pattern.

The design for this cat was inspired by a drawing I saw of a cat with really skinny legs Smiley.

This one was inspired by a picture I saw while doing a Google image search for "black cat".

Thanks for looking!

266  Losing my Inchie Virginity in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by LimeRiot on: December 23, 2010 09:21:45 AM
I've always admired the incredible inchie artwork of all of the paper craft superstars here but I've never had the guts to try myself. I recently joined the Beginners Inchie swap and that's given me motivation to take the plunge!

Here are the first 8 I made. I certainly need more practice but these are SO much fun!! I can't believe I waited so long to try Smiley.

I used watercolor pencils, sharpies, glitter and magazine clippings for these...

I used watercolor crayons, torn-up pages from Othello and some pictures from vintage cigar post cards...

Things I learned...

- 1" x 1" is SO much smaller than I realized
- Making inchies is MESSY - my craft room is destroyed
- My Scrabble dictionary is finally coming in handy - all the words I need!
- I will never throw away another scrap of paper again Smiley

Thanks for looking!

267  Woodland Embroidery in Needlework: Completed Projects by LimeRiot on: December 22, 2010 01:25:19 PM
We're having another fun round of the Embroidery Hoopla swap! This time we're doing an OTT (One Tiny Thing) theme and we're working on hoops that are 4" or less.

This is what I created for my partner. The design was inspired by a quilt that's in the book, Scandanavian Stitches.

Thanks for looking!

269  Another Matchbox Advent (pic chubby) in Winter Holidays by LimeRiot on: December 06, 2010 09:02:15 PM
I jumped on the matchbox advent calendar bandwagon this year Smiley. I was inspired by one I saw on Sweet Paul (http://sweetpaul.typepad.com/my_weblog/) as well as many of the calendars others have shared here!

I took some in-process photos in case anyone is interested in how I did this.

I stamped 25 matchboxes and then lined them each with holiday papers.

I glued the outsides of the boxes together with hot glue. I row of 9, one of 7, one of 5, etc...

I wrapped each row in holiday paper and then hot glued the wrapped rows together in the shape of a tree.

Last but not least, I filled each box with special treats and whimsies!

Happy holidays, everyone! Thanks for looking Smiley.

270  Re: Embroidery Hoopla Round 3 - OTT Edition! (SignUps 11/23- 12/7, SendOuts 1/10) in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by LimeRiot on: November 29, 2010 06:55:55 PM
We've surpassed Round 2 and are now up to 85 participants and 128 hoops. Yow!

I snapped a photo of my growing hoopla wall this weekend! You can see the great hoop I received from missmoppet, a button astrological sign hoop I received in another swap from murbeck and the woodland characters I received from millik (not a hoop but I still adore it Smiley).

I made the tiny little car in the bottom left hand corner recently to get a tiny hoop fix Smiley. It's hard to see but the top hoop says "I love you more than ranch" - I made that one for Mr. Lime a while back but just recently hung it up.
