Accents/backgrounds for inchies and stuff. They're a nice resource because they come in any color you could ever want. Besides they're free(:

I have a new found love for inchies.
Let's swap 'em (: Private swaps too!

I received these envelopes a few days ago but my internet's been slow so now i am finally getting the pics on here of all my awesome goodies!!!

First from princessblueberry lots of goodies! Foreign text, pages from an encyclopedia, vintage/retro looking ladies, and she sent some vintage card holders to hold my christmas inchies from a separate swap!! She is so thoughtful!!!


You can see in the upper left corner the envelope that she decorated with textured paper and a cloth heart!


And here is a closer pic of the ATC and inchie she made for me! They are wonderful!


Next is my goodies from StickerChic87! She superpacked my envie full of paper goodies and some cool beads and buttons! There are some really col stickers and cards to make ATCs with! I love it all!

(she and I live in the same town so we spoiled each other a bit lol)

What awesome stuff! Looks like you all have some great collections.

See my problem is that I used stuff from my stash, which is fine, except that every time I look at the stuff I put in the envelopes, it looks boring to me, because I see it all the time! I have to remind myself that not everybody noses through the things I have on a daily (almost) basis.

Spiffyhink, I totally agree, I have quite a few books of clip art images, great for inchies, and tons of encyclopedias here just for the purpose of ephemera. If you have a subject matter, I can provide the images. LOL, I sent one lady 8 pounds of ephemera once in a flat rate box.

I love the foreign text some of you have received. Love the atc's and little bits and bobs of stuff. I did put in one soft item in but had to keep it small to not go over the weight, and cannot find my scales, so I had to guess.

I found with previous swaps of 44cent variety, I put it on the scanner so I can actually get better images.  I'll do that when I receive my goodies.

Dizzer, you should actually do this each month, first 2 weeks signup and last 2 weeks craft. LOL

If only I wasn't going to be full for January and February! I'm organizing three swaps at the end of this month and two or three swaps in February...but might have to have someone else do the swaps I plan on hosting in February since my second son is due that month.


Okay! So, for those of you who ready my errrgavation from today's trip to the post office, here are the envies I decorated VOID of those pesky postal stickers:P

Quick note that these were taken with a camera phone and are thus not the greatest of qualities, but at leas you get to see what the stickers will be covering up >.<

Envelope #1








Envelope #2


Envelope #3

I totally should have, but I'm way too nice for my own good:P

Thank you, it's been years since I've drawn so the proportions are all out of whack, but I hope the recipients of each at least gets some enjoyment out of them Wink

A sticker of a band that I've never heard of, but plan on looking up.

My favorite band ever! Ive seen them over 20 times and this year their album is nominated for a Grammy! I even got to introduce them on stage once! (Sorry, I get excited about them  Smiley)

Oh, and I noticed that youve been getting into inchies and ATCs lately so thats why theres a bunch of paper! I didnt pre cut them though so you could decide which to use them for!


And mandy, I just had to put the pizza stickers in. I dont know if you can even use them for anything, but you know, they were just perfect since we live in pizza haha!



I would love to do this swap every month. The 2 week sign up and 2 week send out is a great idea too! Low stress+low postage+cool new stuff=awesome swap!
