Right after I joined this site, I discovered inchies and have become addicted to them. I can't say I've made many yet, less than 10 total, but I think I'm slowing getting better. I tried drawing on the first ones, hoping that maybe I'm not as horrible an artist as I remember myself being in high school...but I'm definitely as horrible as I remember lol. My art being on a 1 inch scale makes it seem more cute than ugly though. My 1 month will end on the 15th and I can't wait to sign up for this swap!

I was using a ruler and scissors to make my first inchies but I don't measure very straight...or maybe it's I don't cut very straight (not sure lol) and they came out looking lopsided. I did make a few using a paper trimmer and they look nice, but after purchasing a 1 square inch punch from the craft store, I don't think I'll ever go back to cutting them myself. It's so much easier to punch them out and definitely worth the money. The Michaels where I purchased mine had it for $11.

I love the idea of using paint samples for backgrounds. I might even have a few lying around. If not, the hardware store is only a few minutes down the road. I'll pick up a few and see what ideas I can come up with for them!

For ATC's, you can use playing cards and cover them. Or use them to trace on cereal boxes or other thin card board. This swap is great because you really don't need to buy anything.

Thanks for the tip! I would never have thought of using playing cards. I probably wouldn't have even realized ATCs and the cards are the same size. It will make my life much easier.

Just wanted to let you all know that I have 6 more questionaires in my inbox and will be sorting through them and adding them first thing tomorrow. I just can't concentrate with the kids running around all day and I had my kid free craft night tonight!  Grin

Just sent in my questionnaire! I have literally never made an inchie or an ATC, and I haven't swapped in awhile, but this just caught my eye and I couldn't resist! I'm looking forward to trying a new craft.

I've bookmarked this thread, and am thinking about joining. Got some other projects going that are more time consuming, but this one sounds like such fun.  I've made a few ATCs (years ago), but never made an inchie.  I can't wait to see the gallery!!

Boycott haters.

I just signed up!   Excited and can't wait to see how this goes!   I've not made inchies or ATCs before, but always drool over them here on the boards.

I can do personal swaps!  ^_^

Working on my questionnaire... I'm not a beginner, but I'm super excited for more inchies Smiley

First swap, this is going to be fun. Made only a few inchies before and never made any ATC so I'm super psyched about this.

The big picture may be amazing but it's the little details that inspire.
