The Inchie Bug



OK, it hasn't quite bit yet but I am preparing myself for the onset! I wanted to make a little book with my Bind it All and since I signed up for my very first alpha inchie swap. This was a good excuse to make one to put my anticipated alphabet inchies in. I recently made a friend an atc using a reflection theme for an atc swap on one of my atc groups. I loved it so much, that I had to make another one just for myself. It was a good reason to make myself one and use it as the front cover of my little inchie book. The image is by one of my favorite rubber stamps companies, Third Coast Rubberstamps http://www.thirdcoastrs.com/ and it was a perfect one to make a reflection on vellum. All the paper and cardstock is by WorldWin Papers (Ruche, Vellum and Treasures) and the rub on is by Melissa Frances. Anyway, since I needed to practice I made my very first inchies. I have a lot to learn about them. These are pretty primative looking but hey, I gotta start somewhere! Inchie world, here I come!!!

Wow, I think I'm the first to comment on your inchies! They're too cute, and I think you're being over critical when you say they're primative. I've gotta get going on mine! LOL!

Great inchies, Cindy! Love your book for them too!! I am afraid to get started with inchies; seems they become an addiction to everyone that does them! LOL
