I am SO FAR BEHIND in posting all the lovely inchies I have received so I'll try to get some in right now, and then come back with some more later (I have company coming, including MY MOTHER!)

From NH822

Check out some details

From GlinkS1063 - such a wonderful vintage vibe!

From xtabsx- don't you love these powerful colors!?? (and for some reason they want to come out sideways and skewed... xtabsx, I will see if I can re-take and repost to show how great they are)

(they didn't always photograph as well as in real life)

From ehinders- drat! I didn't unfold all of them for you to see-- will work on that...

From llisaredd - I need to retake this whole batch of photos, because the colors just flat wash out- they are SO creative!


I am the luckiest of swappers, and feel so blessed to have had the partners I had!

I SHALL RETURN! (after I get some more house cleaning done)

Oh, Dinkime! How I love your inchies for our partner with computer problems! (I thought the Broadway musical theme was the hardest one we had...)

But I'm going to follow your lead in posting the ones I sent her, so she won't have to mess with it--- Hope that's OK!

Oh so much fun! And I'm just catching my breath to be able to post these now... I'm so sorry they weren't posted earlier, so everyone can see their wonderfulness.

My themes were: Texas (the state and the state of mind), Joy, and the colors blue and green together.

From starryeyeddiy:

She not only worked in the Texas A&M star logo, but also the FANTASTIC armadillo:

Such wonderful graphics... (I love me some bluebonnets ALL the TIME!)

Seeuudee's gorgeous set made it across the big pond in record time:
Her creativity and attention to detail is breathtaking (and this is what she did after she said she was NOT INSPIRED!)

I just love her Texas flag, and all the layers of construction for these complex collaged ones (ACK! Can anyone help me with turning these right side down with cropping? I thought I had done a good job on Photobucket, but it seems to have boomeranged and distorted! Some of them worked, but these didn't! So sorry, seeuudee... this is not doing them justice!):

SlyBetty found an errant inchie on her desk after she sent her set of Texas wildflowers to me, and I posted the original 11 that I received so all could see, but she sent the Evening Primrose inchie last week, and here is the complete set:

I'm stunned to realize that I haven't posted the inchies I've received since the first two sets! Please forgive me!

Here are the latest (my themes were Texas, the state and the state of mind, Joy, and the colors blue and green together):
From dinkime, look at the gorgeous card she made!

And Woo Hoo, I got the smiley faced music ("even music smiles") inchie!

MunLtStmpr sent these gorgeous inchies packed with these fascinating postcards:

 They are so diverse and intriguing! I admit I laughed at the gold fish as big as the man's torso... I know there are some Texas fishermen who remember their fishing trips that way!!

Is this one your calling card, Maimun?

Hlillie made her own card, too, and hers were fabric with amazing embellishments that were hard to photograph with such detail:

I'll have to post some later, too.

Dinkime- Did the "There's no place like home" word bar fall off your inchie with the world on it? Dratted glue!

I really enjoyed the fun of making your inchies, from the Owlery one, which was the first one I made for you, to Brittany's cat reading the diary, they were all a blast, but I hoped they weren't too cryptic....

Like the square root of four being rainbow... hee hee hee

I just had to work with the supplies that I could get to after the water came into the house during our big rain (12 inches in less than 2 hours)... most of my crafting supplies had to be moved out of a closet area and into a bathroom, and then OTHER stuff and furniture had to e moved to get the carpet up... we still have fans and dehumidifiers going...

I just got back into town and found 2 sets waiting for me (sorry that I couldn't post them earlier)

They are breathtaking!!! My themes were Texas, Joy, and the colors Blue-and-Green together.
From audioastrophysics, with such fantastic coloring and a wonderful eye for collage:

From SlyBetty...these are hand drawn Texas wildflowers!!! Eat your heart out, everybody, they're mine, Mine, MINE (Bwahahaha...)

Since everybody has received mine, these are what I sent out (no rhyme or reason whatsoever):

I believe that U for "umbrella" is the most recurring theme, don't you? (and to think I almost made U for "underwater")

ALL of the ones I've received are fabulous! Thank you! Thank you!

From Kartiana (I think, despite the wonder of all the others, I'm drawn to the sleekness of the Zap!):

From the_trademarks (such tiny drawings! and that teeny owl is adorable! and where, oh where, do you find those clear corner holders, the_t?):

From Spiffyhink (such a gregarious collection of words! Who doesn't love words!??):

A couple letters (naughty "L"s they were) escaped from their meatball thread but I will get those babies fixed right away.

So that leaves me with an awesome alphabet (and a couple extra):

I am SO thrilled: I've received from EVERYBODY in my group

(but I'll limit my posts a bit so they won't be too big)

Here's from irockmysocks off:
Aren't they handsome!?!

I got one of her gorgeous owl cards, too!

From Banga:
Look how crisp and clean her designs are, beautifully executed!

From FoxyMama (check out the packaging):

Look, she built a book for D-dictionary, and used MY name for J- WooHoo! and even threw in an extra!

10  A Bevy of Blooming Book Flowers for Earth Day! in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by McJulie-O on: April 21, 2010 05:59:16 PM
Many of you know that I volunteer for the Friends of the Library, and transform the books leftover after their annual book sale into altered books by cutting them into shapes

or making book safes out of them.

In looking for a way to use the pages cut out of the center of the book safes, we found BOOK FLOWERS! I don't know where I saw them, and efforts to find the original inspiration have failed, but these are the PERFECT way to use those old pages.

Start by cutting circles out of your pages (use a punch if you have one for smaller blooms, or fancy edged scissors for the larger blooms)

Stack them on top of each other, turning the print so that it doesn't run the same direction on all the layers.

Staple an X in the middle.

Start wadding the topmost layer up, and then each layer underneath it, and then loosen the wadded up paper to open the blossom.

They can be hot glued to hair bands or hair clips or to pins to make brooches:

This one was cut with deep lobes to make a different kind of bloom.

Bet that you can't stop after making just one!
