Give a girl an inch....

AND she will make "Inchies" - lol!

Shirley, my friend, and I went down to O'Dear's today and took an "Inchies" class!

We had SO much fun! Our heads are just reeling with ideas. We had both 'piddled' with Inchie type things before, but had never been shown exactly what to do.

Well...Karin Braxton is a wonderful teacher, and had some beautiful projects for us to do. The 16 square black card could honestly be framed and hung on the wall. The photo's simply don't do it justice! There is one additional card that we didn't have time to do, so it was sent home with us for 'homework'!

And, as for O'Dear's, I certainly enjoy an 'excuse' to go there and shop! (I now have TWO sets of Spellbinder's!)...

Hope you have all enjoyed your Saturday so far! DD and DH left for St. Louis this a.m. about 5:30. She ran in a 5k race that was sponsored by the YMCA. She finished up just a few minutes before the rain began! Stan went on to get the oil changed in our little fun-mobile, and I went to my class. All is well with our world so far today!

Have a great night -

Patti J.

Sharri said...

Patti, these are beautiful! I have yet to do anything with inchies. You'll have to make up a tutorial sharing all that you learned on inchies!
Thank you for stopping by my blog today!

I love inchies!! Great job with all of your cards - I need to use the inspiration to make some of my own! I even bought "inchies" rather than cut them myself and haven't used but a few. Have a great weekend!

Hi Patti
Your inchies are fabulous! I haven't been brave enough to try them yet ... they're too small and just scare me!
I've left you a little award on my blog by the way:

Tabitha said...

Patti oh what fun you have had with inchie's! I've actually never made anything with them LOL perhaps I will give it a try.

To get the blog award on your blog just right mouse click it and the save the image to your computer. Then upload it like you would a regular picture. Real easy once you figure out how to do it.

Love these cards, Patti! They all came out so great. I have been wanting to do something similar for a while but just keep putting it off. You made some wonderful cards. LOVE THAT!

Any of these could be framed! Who knew all you could do with an inchie! Really beautiful work Patti!
Blessings, Maria
