Okay, so I have been putzing with scrapbooking for years- my pages are...boring. I don't do all the fancy-scmancy stuff that other people do, and I'm sorta jealous, but hide it behind a facade of "that's too busy for my taste"...but I digress.
Having been on here for awhile now, I have explored this "inchie' concept with both fascination and fear. You see, the papercrafter in me wants to Do. That. Now! And the creative-in-the-head-not-so-much-in-practice me says...waitaminute! You know that you are gonna botch the heck out of that and then be thoroughly annoyed.
So, I have been being patient (yeah right) and have been pulling together my tiniest of little things from all my crafting areas and piling them together, and thinking... a lot.
While cleaning out my "punches and scissors" drawer- plastic and it broke, grr- I found this punch that makes...you guessed it...squares! While doing a happy dance because now I can quit using my paper cutter like a fiend to make little squares...
Except... I can't. I tried it, and they aren't inch squares...they are 5/8" or so. In my disappointment I did not measure.
So...onto the point of this posting...opinions, please:Do "inchies" have to be an inch exactly, if you choose to join a swap? Not that my skill set is up to a swap yet, but for future reference.
Thanks for your time and patience reading my ramble...
