Valentine Inchies

Oh…what a fun project this has turned out to be!  I can’t believe that it’s been so long since I last did inchies!  How quickly we get distracted by every new, fun endeavor!  I’m so glad that I found my way back.  Inchies are small in size, but they really pack a lot of punch into that small space.

I was working on cards using the 6″X6″ Doodlebug Design Sweet Cakes pad recently and there were plenty of scraps to use and the colors are delicious, so I pulled these out. 

The key to making inchies easy is to start thinking small…everything must be small: small patterns, small stamps, small ribbon and small trim.  So I gathered my smallest Paper Shapers, especially hearts and flowers; square punches 1″ and smaller; trim, baker’s twine, mini brads and tiny buttons; and don’t forget the regular adhesives, inks and some iridescent Stickles.

With my little pile pulled together, I was ready to do the tiny deed.

Four alphabet letters are plenty of design for this card!  But then I couldn’t stop, so I just kept making the little inchies, but this time I made some some gift tags and enclosures.

and some cards…

…yes, it’s one of those spiral wrapped flowers, starting with a 1 1/2″ circle.


And one more tag…


Anyway, these were certainly fun!  I will have to revisit these sooner this time.  Try making some inchies…I think you will find them addicting!
