Wanna join? Post your inchies here, along with WIPs if you want.

Here are a few of mine. These are still incomplete.



I did the backgrounds first, with red, purple, and white acrylics, then pasted some things from old magazines, and in one case, old sheet music. xD

NOTE: Inchies are simply a 1 inch by 1 inch piece of cardboard, cardstock, posterboard, or something similar that is then decorated. Kinda follows the style of mini-ATCs.

June 12, 2009: Craftalong start! This week's theme: Summertime!
Get your pictures up by Wednesday, June 17.

NOTE: You don't have to follow the themes. Cheesy They are just to help give ideas for those who may be stuck.

very cute!

Check your dollar stores to see if they have the magnetic sheeting as I know they sell it at mine (sometimes it is in the craft section, sometimes with the picture frames and sometimes with the kitchen magnets).

For those of you curious to know what inchies are, I've updated the first post with the definition. Smiley

ATCs are Artist Trading Cards. There's an entire forum dedicated to them here:

I just posted the same thing, so I asked the mod to remove it or merge it. I am just starting and will be posting mine soon.

Show us what you have done. I have completed one, have a dozen in the works, and lots of blanks cut. LOL

How do you cut the magnets. I'll bump this back up to the front, and maybe we can get the broken links removed.

Updating this and restarting the inchie along sounds like a fabulous idea to me, especially with them gaining such popularity over on the paper crafts board.

I've made something like 60 inchies so far (mostly for the latest inchie swap) and I'm fairly addicted to them!

Here's a helpful link for anyone who wants to get started with inchies, written up by the lovely Phizzychick:
