Details of swap:
Welcome to the ongoing inchie swap 4. This round has a little bit of a twist. You can request inchies, rinchies or Twinchies! For anyone who is not sure what and inchie, rinchie or twinchie is or how to go about making one, here is a great post on the papercraft forums by phizzychick (who makes amazing inchies!) http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=303188.0

You will need to make a list of at least 8 themes for people to choose from. I will put up my list first and will wrap up the swap by making the last claim. Once you claim you will need to craft and send within 2 weeks of the claim date. You can request 8 inchies, 8 rinchies, 4 twinchies or a combination (ie 2 inchies, 2 rinchies and 2 twinchies OR 4 inchies and 4 rinchies etc)

Everyone is encouraged to join. If you can contain your art to a square of 1 inch, you can make an inchie (or a 1 circle for a rinchie or a 2 square for a twinchie!)! With that said, please make your inchies/rinchies and twinchies with love and care. Whether you paint, print, stamp, color, draw, ink or embellish, spend a bit of time and energy making the inchies you send to the best of your ability. Everyone you claim should receive inchies you are proud to have made and would love to receive.

- Friends of craftster will be allowed 5 outstanding claims.
- People who have completed one swap or more may have 3 outstanding claims
- New swappers may claim once, and 3 times once the first claim has been received (once you have received a message from the organiser allowing this).

Once these claims have been received, you may claim again. You can make as many (or as few) claims as you want throughout the duration of the swap as long as you never go over your allowed amount of outstanding claims. (An outstanding claim is a set of inchies that has not been received; when that set is received your number of outstanding claims goes down leaving you open to claim again.)

Making a claim:
When you make a claim please use the following layout in the swap forum:

Here is my list up a bit early, to provide some inspiration for yours.....

Send by ?? Oct 2012
Nilmerg to 'acraftster' for 'atheme'

0/0/0

Hi all inchiers Im Elaine and I live in Rural NSW, Australia. Im finishing off an inchie frame that is simply black and white (or greyscale, but no colour at all) and I'm also about to start one that is green. So if you could keep all of your inchies to just Black and white OR green, it would be much appreciated. 3D elements are fine, I prefer to recieve individual inchies rather than ones that go together to form a bigger picture. A wise swapper (smmarrt) once said to me Id prefer a badly hand drawn inchie to one covered in stickers and I tend to agree  Wink

I'm interested in recieving Inchies or Rinchies, but would prefer not to recieve Twinchies please.

I'd love it if you could add your username to the back of the inchie too please.


Themes:
1. Artist choice go on have fun, I love to see what people choose to draw
2. Celtic knots / pictish symbols or runes
3. Silhouettes of women - faces, hair, pregnancy, breastfeeding, bodies etc. (not sexually explicit please - but tasteful nudity is all good)
4. Nature - trees, flowers, leaves, vegetables etc
5. Zentangles
6. Music
7. Time
8. Farm
9. Finger prints
10. Steam Punk
11. Non-paper
12. Buttons
13. Flowers
14. Containing Crochet or knitted
15 CHRISTMAS - Any and all colours are fine for this theme only - non religious please.

Or inspired by anything on my inchie inspiration board http://pinterest.com/nilmerg/inchie-inspiration/


CLAIMS ARE NOW OPEN - Have fun  Wink

1/0/0

Good morning from cloudy Ithaca, NY where the leaves are starting to turn beautiful colors. I recently learned about inchies and became quite enamoured with them, but have never swapped. Therefore, I'm willing to take a wide range -- any material, any color, etc. I tried to create themes that provide my partners with substantial flexibility. I'm a person who gets excited with surprises, so I'll like anything. Here are my themes:

1) serial (a set of inchies that together tell a story)
2) fruits
3) foreign languages
4) happy
5) flowers
6) celebrations (non-religious)
7) farm animals
Cool hobbies

1/0/0

Hello!  This is my first inchie swap, though I've done some ATC swaps and included a few inchies to try, and they're super fun.  For me, they're a way to get past artist's block, and seeing how others do the same is so inspiring.  I haven't swapped in awhile and figured this would be an easy, fun, inexpensive way to start up again.  3-D or flat is fine, as I will mount them without glass, and I prefer inchies or rinchies.  Thanks!  Okay, so here are my themes:

1.  Your favorite quote
2.  A song lyric
3.  Sewn, either paper or fabric
4.  Portraits
5.  Lace
6.  Beaded
7.  Watercolor
8.  Red
9.  Orange
10.  Yellow
11.  Green
12.  Blue
13.  Indigo
14.  Violet
15.  Foreign (non-English) words with translation
16.  Handmade stamps
17.  Maps
18.  Tiny book
19.  Glitter dust or pen (not the big pieces of glitter, please)
20.  Sand art
21.  Moving parts

Due 17th October
I claim nilmerg for artists choice in b&w/green theme.
1/0/0

Hiya. Im Gini and I live on the South Coast of England.

I am happy with you picking one theme for all 8 or 1 from 8 different themes. I am also happy for several inchies to join together to make up a bigger picture. Please could you put your Username and your inchie creation date on the back of each inchie.

Inchies or twinchies please, would prefer not to receive rinchies, but if there is one that you just need to do, I wont think badly of you!!  Grin

I completely agree with the sentiment Id prefer a badly hand drawn inchie to one covered in stickers.

Themes:
1.   Joss Wheedon related buffy, angel, firefly anything goes
2.   Books/reading/libraries
3.   Twilight books or films related
4.   Your favourite word or quote
5.   Anything role play related live, tabletop or computer game related
6.   Lord of the rings
7.   Single colour textures
8.   Artists choice
9.   I would love to put a frame together of all the inchie swappers I swap with, so I am looking for an artists choice inchie from each swapper that I swap with, with the inchie representing you.

I will update my post each time I receive one, so if your name is on the list, sorry, but I dont need another one from you.

I claim Gini/seeuudee for books/reading/libraries and single color textures and one artists choice.
Send out 10/18/12.
1 claim/0 sent/0 received

Hi - I am Susan from San Francisco, CA. I would love twinchies but you can make a combo of all three - your choice. I'm easy.

My themes are:

1. Craftster
2. Sewing
3. Birds
4. Food
5. Drink
6. Art and Artists
7. Harry Potter spells, teachers and creatures
8. Paris

I love words on my inchies, rinchies and twinchies. And if you're so inspired, I'd love some fabric inchies, rinchies or twinchies! I use some in my art and travel journals and some will be used in my altered puzzles.
Thanks and have fun.

I claim Smmarrt for twinchies in a variety of her themes.
Send out Oct. 19
1/0/0

Hi. Im Valerie from NJ, USA. I love whimsical/ quirky art, in whatever your best medium is. I mount these in various art journals, so please keep them fairly thin (a layer or two of cardstock or watercolor paper is fine; corrugated cardboard or heavy/ rigid embellishments, not so much). Please nothing religious or scented. If you're making inchies, I would prefer "standalones" rather than ones that have to be combined to make an image. Any combination of themes is fine by me.

I would prefer twinchies or inchies.

Themes:
1. whimsical/ quirky monsters or creatures (from your imagination)
2. whimsical/ quirky people
3. collage/ mixed media involving vintage photos
4. characters from the TV show Battlestar Galactica (newer version)
5. the TV show Carnivale
6. the TV show Flashpoint
7. the TV show Farscape
8. the TV show Being Human (UK version)

**PLEASE NOTE THAT I DO NOT HAVE A DIGITAL CAMERA OR SCANNER. I WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE IT IF YOU COULD TAKE A GALLERY PHOTO BEFORE SENDING, AS I WILL NOT BE ABLE TO. (sorry for the inconvenience!)
