*International shipping is required*
*DC #s are not required but you will have to resend if the inchie set is not received*

Everyone is encouraged to join. If you can contain your art to a square of 1 inch, you can make an inchie! With that said, please make your inchies 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.

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

The bonus is we can 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 about 3 weeks crafting time.
It will be necessary to list 5 themes on your questionnaire, I’d 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.

(Thank you to kimchery/nilmerg and any other previous inchies organizers  from whom I've borrowed most of this information/questionnaire.)  

1. Single color or color 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 favorite 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/pinterest)

I reserve the right to deny participation to a swapper with history of poor communication and/or very late sending.

You must post in the thread once prior to being admitted to the swap.

Hi everyone! I hope your fingers are almost ready to make some inchies! If you haven't signed up yet, hurry! Just a few more days left to sign up...inchies are great fun!  If you have signed up.....I have preliminary partners figured out.....woohoo....of course, this can all change when we get more inchie makers!

I've never made one but always wanted to try my hand at them. Can't wait to get started. I'll probably do a few "practice" one first so I get the hang of them! Not that I want to make some and frame them or anything!

I started doing act cards 2 1/2 x 3 1/2, then I found some inchie stamps and a square punch that I've been using to make greeting cards. I look forward to expanding my themes and techniques.

Organizer's Note: I'm going to close sign ups tonight probably around 8-9pm EST.  If you want to get in on the Inchies Mania, post in the thread and send your Q in! I will try to post partners tonight, and if things go really well, I will try to even send out partner info!  It's almost time to get our inchies on!

I feel the same way, I like having to research and think outside the box. My themes might be a little odd but I'm always pleasantly surprised with what people come up with. It's usually something I never thought of before.

Hi everyone! I hope I've fixed all my partner goof ups!! Wowza i tried to be so careful but I made several mistakes. Just a quick FYI. I will be out of town tomorrow through late Thursday so you probably won't hear much from me until Friday.

  If you send during that time, remember to pm myself and your  partner and I will update when I get back. Thanks!

I'm just checking in this morning. I had a really hectic weekend and not much puter time.
But inchies are on my agenda today! We have snow falling here in PA, so I won't be driving anywhere until late this afternoon!
Can't wait to get started.

I think I'm going to start crafting today. If it's possible to create an inchie while on a greyhound bus, I'm going to figure out how, and that's how I'll spend 6 hours (yes, I'll be on the bus that long!) of my day. It, of course, may not be possible to inchie on a bus, in which case crafting will begin tomorrow. I'm excited.

I just finished up 52 altered playing cards for the Inspirational Card Swap and now it's inchie time! I did some research last night for one partner (yes, I printed out the 'Clockwork Orange' dictionary!).

I hope to enjoy lots of preseason baseball this weekend and inchie-mania!

i've been working on my inches, mostly sketches where ever i happen to be and i was wondering how to present them do you stick them on a card with double stick tape, or is it better to put them in an envelope loose?

Hey guys! I'm back from my trip, had a great time...now to get serious work on my inchies!!! 

I usually take mine to a card, but some people use that sticky stuff (like you would use to hang posters) to adhere to a card.  Or you can mail them loose, but i find i prefer them in a card.

Oh, Just a little something-something to  think about....a lot of people like it when you write the name of the swap and your name/user name on the back of your inchies.....I'm not going to require it, but I usually do that...helps people remember what they got and from whom!

I just finished my first set of 8. What fun. For shipping, I am putting them into an ATC holder - the sheer plastic kind that I get when someone sends me an ATC. There is some overlap, but I have confidence that if I ask for hand cancellation, they will be ok.

I just remembered I like to tape my inchies to index cards (I love index cards).....I have one set all done, and half a set for my other two partners done...so 8 more to go! I worked on my inchies for quite a while last night--cut myself off around 12:30 am!  I'm writing out a quick note, and will either mail out tomorrow, or Monday....if I get my other inchies done, they will be mailed out too....   I've got some great themes to work with, and I'm finding myself drawn to a technique I NEVER use!  haha, and if you pay attention, I *may* have outed myself on what that technique may be!

these have been really fun, and each one doesn't take much time, but they are so small! i cut a sheet apart a couple nights ago to sort and get ready for mailing, and i've lost the envelope! if you saw my living room you would realize that isn't hard to do. ugh, must clean and search tonight.

Finished my inchies today. I just hope they are good enough for my partners! I had fun making them. Since this was my first time I'm having swap anxiety! I hope to make it to the post office tomorrow.

Averia - I hope everything is okay!!

My kids have been out for spring break, and my husband was cast as an extra for the tv show revolution - so things have been pretty hectic around here. I had my inches all ready to go, gave the hubs money to send them on his way to work and then got to thinking. Rechecked, and I totally put the wrong inchies in the envelopes!! Fortunately my husband was running late and didn't get to send them. Needless to say they are all in the correct envelopes now :) I'm hoping to send them out today, tomorrow at the latest. I also recieved my first set today, and will be posting pics in the gallery soon!

Well, I can't get to the post office today for the exact amount of stamps I need. So I just put extra stamps on the envelopes and dropped them in the mailbox!

Finally got my lazy self down to the post office this afternoon to send out my inchies.  I'm excited for them to be received.  Looking forward to a great gallery. 

Oh, and I forgot to take pictures!  I know, bad.  Hopefully my partners will be able to get some good pictures.

Organizer's Note

Everyone has received, and with that, this swap is finished! I want to thank you all for your wonderful communication, and participation. I hope you all enjoyed making your inchies.  I have a busy summer planned (including a MUCH NEEDED trip back home to Anchorage Alaska) so I think I'll throw a feeler out for more inchie making come Fall....so....keep your eyes open!
