7th birthday inchie swap

hi all
We are planning to swap inchies to celebrate our birthday. Please sign up here if you are interested. the idea will be to make an inchie for each person who signs up -I think each person can choose if they make them all the same, similar or different -maybe even individualised! We will need to decide a colour scheme -any suggestions?

Please sign up by 20 Sept -we can then set a date for making them. I am happy to host the swap

margaret rorie

Thanks for offering to host this swap, Vonny.  Please count me in.
Beckyb

I am in colours could be pink and green or blue and yellow gosh loads of combinations  Laughing x
vonny

good suggestions Becky -the sample has blue/turquoise and orang/yellow/gold -so fits with your second suggestion  Very Happy Or what about black and white with a splash of colour maybe?
Beckyb

Blk and wht with a splash of colour sounds good to me.
margaret rorie

I like the idea of black and white with a splash of colour.
Mickie

Me too!
vonny

wow -a consensus then  Laughing
Jennie

Sorry late to the party! Yes count me in please and the colours sound great.
vonny

plenty of time yet to sign up Jennie -am hoping Sarah and Miriam would like to play too
Beckyb

Are we still doing this it has gone a bit quiet. x
Mickie

Think we are waiting for a response from Miriam and Sarah.  Have you messaged them Vonny?  Just thinking they may not have found their way to this thread Laughing
vonny

had forgotten this so thanks for the reminder -will send them a pm now!
Miriam

I'm in......  sorry it's taken so long!!
vonny

no problem. Will give Sarah a few more days then let you all know the game plan
Beckyb

Thanks Vonny x
vonny

ok -6 of us taking part so we all need to make 5 inchies to swap on the theme black and white with a splash of colour. These can be all the same, similar or totally different. Please put your name on the back. If you want to send them to a specific person then please add that to the back too.
Think that a 6 week time frame should be about right as we have the tag books and ATCs too so could you please get them to me, with SAE by 3 November?
Hope this is ok...Enjoy!
Mickie

Thanks Vonny  Laughing
Miriam

Perfect.... thanks Vonny...

Can I just check - when you say inchie you mean inchie - not like the inchie cube we did some years ago?
vonny

I mean a flat inch square Miriam -glad you checked. Think I still have one of those cubes -they were a bit vulnerable to squashing!
Jennie

Thanks Vonny
Beckyb

Thanks Vonny will get on with them xx
Sarah

Hello all

Late to this thread as always. Just wondered how many of you have already finished your inchies?  if only one or two then would love to join in too (I would send to all but obviously not expect anything from those who have finished already ...) no problem if all underway - my fault for not being on the ball...
Mickie

As we have until November to send them in, I am happy to do six instead of five so welcome aboard Sarah.  Glad you can join in xx
Beckyb

I have only just started mine Sarah so please do join in I am making extra so in case I mess up  Confused
Sarah

Thanks Mickie and Becky.  i will do 6, but please don't feel obliged to do an extra one, anyone who has already finished! Vonny, sorry, hope this won't cause too much confusion!  The new term went off to a manic start and I went far too long without checking the forum.
margaret rorie

Good to have you joining us Sarah - I haven't started my inches yet. I know I have some suitable stamps but think they are packed away in a box!
Jennie

That's great news Sarah - I have not started mine so no problem  Very Happy
vonny

Sarah -great that you can join us -and no problem at all. We all need to make 6 inchies now and send to me with SAE by 3 Nov
Sarah

Thanks! Will enjoy it.
vonny

have started mine but finding the small space quite difficult!
Sarah

Yes, rather challenging!  Finally got myself out of bed this afternoon to have a go. Loved doing it.
Mickie

Whose bright idea was this?  Ive just realised just how small an inch is Rolling Eyes  Laughing  They'll all be lovely when we've got the hang of it Laughing  Laughing
Beckyb

Thanks Vonny better get on with these xx
vonny

blame me for clearing out my craft stampers Mickie!! Very Happy
Sarah

I really enjoyed it!  Do you want a Large Letter SAE or will an ordinary one do? They are so tiny!
Sarah

I really enjoyed it!  Do you want a Large Letter SAE or will an ordinary one do? They are so tiny!
Beckyb

Mine have been sent but oops I forgot to put a self address envie  so will put one in the post. xx
Jennie

Err yes ... well ... I found the inch a little challenging .........

Wil have another go tomorrow  Embarassed
Beckyb

Well I won't be doing them again I did mine all the same  Laughing  I found something that fits  Laughing
vonny

don't worry about the Sae Becky -I am sure I can find a stamp for you.
think normal size stamp will be ok provided the inchies don't all bunch up -not sure how to stop this tho -any ideas?
Sarah

I have stuck them in groups of three to the sticky edge of a post-it then folded the post-it over.  Think they will stay in place...
Sarah

Added a folded over index card for extra security (still fits into the letter slot!)
[/code]
Mickie

Thanks for that Vonny Rolling Eyes  I seem to recall you supplied a photo of a finished project at the outset but I am blessed if I can find it.  Do you know where it is?

Becky you are so quick off the mark but like the idea of doing them all the same.  I've had two ideas so far and binned the lot. Laughing

Good idea Sarah, that should keep them all safe in the post.
vonny

great idea Sarah -think they should be fine like that- and I will send back in the same way.
Becky yours arrived safe and sound and are lovely -and thanks for the ATC.

Mickie

Thanks Vonny I was thinking that it might be an idea to make a support to display the little ..........ahem....tiles!
margaret rorie

Have finished my inchies and will post this evening. Looking forward to seeing what everyone created. Thanks for organising this Vonny.
Beckyb

What a good idea Sarah. Mickie I had several idea which went in the bin I couldn't find what I was going to use and yes now that I have sent them I have found it. Glad mine have arrived Vonny . x
Jennie

OK I think I now have a design  Laughing but it will be black and white plus one, rather than a splash of colour! hope that is ok.
Sarah

I'm sure they will be lovely, Jennie!  My splash of colour was pretty small.  Though thinking about it, everything had to be pretty small really.
Jennie

Laughing  Laughing  Laughing
vonny

Sarah and Margaret your lovely inchies have arrived safely. Jennie I am sure they will be fine
Mickie

Made my six, all the same, lost them and the stamp I used.  Made another batch of six.  Found original batch. Rolling Eyes

Posting one set today Vonny - before I lose them again!
Sarah

Oh no! Can you make the spare ones into a card or something, or are they too specific to the Rebel Stampers' Birthday?
Mickie

Think I'll just put them in my bit box on the "might need them sometime" principle Laughing
vonny

doesn't that always happen mickie?
I have actually made 3 different ones and 3 of each so I will keep three to add to the 6 I will get so I can do a square layout
Miriam

I have done my inchies today so will post tomorrow Vonny - they were fun to do - I was worried about making such small art!!  Great fun!
vonny

Mickie yours arrived safely today thank you -I loved the patchwork stamp on the little note too  Smile
Jennie

vonny

Mickie

Got mine yesterday - they are lovely. Thanks to Vonny for coming up with idea and for organising this. I've stuck mine on card and will do a scrapbook page with them for the Rebel Stampers book (which is in a box!)
Mickie

Mine were waiting for me on the doormat when I got in this evening - fabulous guys!  Love them all. Can't think what all the fuss was about Wink

Thank you everyone and here's to next year's birthday Laughing
Beckyb

vonny

Margaret -love the idea of a Rebel stampers book. does it have something in from every year?
margaret rorie

That was the plan but since I haven't seen it for a while I can't remember. Think I'll go and have a look for it as it's nice to do the page right away.
