Way back in December 2010, I decided that Id like to try inchies, as I had seen lots of amazing inchies on these forums and I'd love to give it a shot. The problem was I'm about as artistic as a broom stick! However, I've since found that with a bit of inspiration, it isnt so hard to make a 1" square piece of card look good. I was afraid that some of the more professional inchie makers may be a bit disappointed with my efforts (although I'm sure they would be encouraging!), so I thought that a beginners inchie swap would be the key. Now we are onto Round 3 and I'm hoping that there are people like me out there who would love to try their hand at inchie making, and just need some inspiration to start.

For anyone who is not sure what and inchie is or how to go about making one, here is a great post on the paper craft forums by phizzychick (who makes amazing inchies!)
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=303188.0

This swap is primarily for people who have never before (or rarely) turned their hand to paper crafts and inchies but would love to do some experimenting. But all are welcome, if you are a more skilled or experienced inchie maker please feel free to join in too and share some inspiration with the beginners.

The bonus is that we can probably post these as Cards or letters and avoid high postage charges so international swapping won't be too costly. Plus we won't be requiring a DC for this swap, but you MUST remake and resend if your inchies don't turn up. This is a no extras swap, if you want to send more than just the inchies (like maybe an ATC), then please do this as a personal swap thanks.

You will have the choice of 1 or 2 or 3 partners and you will be required to send 8 inchies to each partner. You will have just over 2 weeks crafting time.
It will be necessary to list 5 themes on your questionnaire, Id like to suggest some themes that you might use that seem to be popular, but if you have your own ideas that that is fine too.

ETA - WHEN YOU CRAFT FOR YOUR PARTNER, YOU CAN EITHER CRAFT FROM A SINGLE THEME OR FROM A MIX OF THEIR THEMES.

1. Single colour or colour spectrum
2. Nature trees/leaves/flowers etc
3. Crafty items - scissors/thread/tape measure/knitting needles etc.
4. Monsters/robots/aliens
5. Zentangles and patterns
6. Hearts, stars and stripes
7. A favourite TV show, Movie or book
8. Animals (or a specific animal cats / pigs etc)
9. Food & beverages veggies, coffee, fruits, cupcakes
10. Artists Choice (usually inspired by your wist/pintrest)
