I have to give credit for the Cheesehead to my DH - I didn't have that one and he insisted I just couldn't do a Wisconsin set without a cheesehead . . . he was right! 

Grin Thanks to all my partners for a great swap - I had a blast creating your inchies!  Special thanks to alwaysinmyroom for always being so encouraging  Kiss !

Happy crafting!

We're on craftster because we love to create. Why should we settle for what we currently are?

aawww shucks, alwaysinmyeoom.  I almost feel like making a list of inchers I still need to swap with.  And you're one of them!

VJP, your inchies would make beautiful jewelry!

I cut out a square just a smidge larger than an inchie in the middle of a business card to "frame" out the images before I cut.   That really helps me get images that work.

The Cabaret inchie has little dots of gold fabric paint on the letters to add something.  Not sure what though Wink

What a wonderful tip to share!!!  I have a similar thing I do to view my quilting before I start cutting...I never thought to do it for inchies!!  omg--you just made my world a better place!  I have such a tough time seeing things in small scale (I am working on a commissioned painting now that is approximately 6 feet by 8 feet, so switching gears to such tiny pieces is hard for me!!)  Thanks--I going to cut a one inch hole in a spare paintchip to use as a guide!

I finally received my awesome inchies from Beckashell! I LOVE the pin-up inchies!

I can't wait to get all these framed up. I think I'm going to have a wall of framed inchies in my computer/craft room.
Thanks so much to everyone who swapped with me.

I love the elephant!  It reminds me of the old story of the group of blind men trying to explain an elephant.

I want to do a mirror, too!  I have a bunch of small crafting ones that might hold eight inchies each...then put those all together...isn't this fun? Cheesy
