About the creators

I wanted to take a moment and thank all of the people that have allowed me to share their work. All of the postings have the links to the original posting - click on the name of their site. If you find something that you really enjoy please take a minute to go to their site and leave them some love!! Without them, without their permission this would not exist. I try not to get to many from one person - unless what they have is so unique. I do not get anything in return from them...but let them know you found them here with me Jackie at Glitter Fantasies.

Inchies - A what??? Answer and Ideas

If that was your response to what an inchie is...and still want to know I have found the answer! Or maybe you just want a few ideas..found those to. While in my search for the answer I came across a new site Lockhart Stamp Company! They had put together a really nice presentation about inchies! As I was looking around their place I knew I had to include in my little blog world - what better way than introduce something new to me! If you are always looking for new stamps - here's one!! The site is loaded with information and stamps! If you find something you want....go to their Buy Stamps and find a retailer near you. I think I could go on and on..but instead I will let them speak for themselves. This posting is longer than most...but worth it!

Let's get started!

Inchies are a little like eating chocolate for the first time... One taste and there's no turning back. Well, it's the same with Inchies! Whether it's creating, collecting and trading, it's so much fun! Don't forget to visit Inchie Arts (Inchie Supplies) for all of your Inchie supplies.
This is a great frame that I've made into 9 magnet boards featuring individual Inchies and an Inchie puzzle (one image cut into 2 or more 1" sections). Here's a smaller version. With this frame I "framed" each Inchie with a slender slip of paper that I glued on to the 4 edges, forming a frame. I like the clean, visual snap.
Grouping Inchies by color or themes provides a visually strong presentation.
3D Affect
Inchies used in cards can add a nice 3D affect.
Displaying, Storing & Recording Inchies
Covering wooden moulding with scraps of paper makes a great display for Inchies from friends.
Thanks, Carlie and Vee!
I use my Inchie Arts Index© to keep track of Inchies I have traded with friends. My pages are filling fast.
This is my storage box for my paper Inchies, ready for me to stamp on directly or cut out images and apply to the front of my designs.
