Default ALphabet INchies! Due 6-1-08 Closed & Createing

An Alphabet of Inchies!!!

My five year old is starting kindergarten and we are working on learning the alphabet, so I thought what a better way to learn then with alphabet inchies!

Make 27, get 26 back +1 is for the hostess!

There are 26 letters in the alphabet..so...an alphabet of inchies! We need 26 swappers to make this work out right.

Rquirements Must be 1 inch by 1 inch do your best work sign the back be proud of your work!

Make 27 inchies all the same of 1 letter of your choice. You will receive a full aplphabet in return. You may take more than one spot if you wish. You will just end up with more then 1 of your own back.

Due Date for this swap is June 1, 2008.

Please send your inchies in a ziplock plastic bag for protection from the elements.

Send along a SASE the same amount of stamps to send it to me is what it should take but please enclose two extra stamps to be used if needed. If not needed, they will be returned to you. No metered stamps they expire!
send to me:
Melissa Fincham
125 S. Thomas St.
Fremont, NE 68025

Any questions just ask!

Addition:
I started this thread and it was brought to my attention that doing inchies by the letter may be easier, So I am changing this to 27 inchies of one letter. So you would make 27 like inchies of one letter of the alphabet and get back a set of alphabet inchies. The 27th one is for me, also you WILL get 1 of your own back.

Let me know which group you want to sign up for
This is only going to work if I have 26 people sign up! And everyone has to follow through so I am not looking for angels.

Paper73 Thanks for joining and taking the challenge it can be alot of fun!
I hear you I am in over my head on swaps as well as other stuff, I just keep a list and try to check things off as I get them done. They get done according to the due dates. I gave us a later due date so that us inchie lovers have time to get the 51 done as well.

Missa,
Your swap is still early in the game. Have you considered having each person sign up for a letter?. a- z inches is too much work for me right now BUT I would consider making 26 L's(plus one extra for hostess) and getting one letter from everyone else in the swap.

Well if you are taking two letters you will get two alphabet sets back that's even better.

Melissa I will take L and F

I updated the swap thread in #1 because I think the full alphabet was scareing swappers off. So I am just doing the individual letters. Hope it reads right!

Never thought of it as Wheel of Fortune Inchies! I could have used that in the title.

Hi Melissa! I would like a spot and would like "H" as my letter. I have done one other alphabet swap with inchies last year and I loved it! I had to think of something to do before I signed up, so I have my idea already if this one isn't taken.

I can't wait to do this swap but i have other deadlines that I need to meet first. I have sketched out what I want to do. It is also a good chance to use up some pieces that I have an abundance of.

bumping to spread the excitement

The letters are being snatched up fast yeh. If interest slows down I will take extra letters. But Melissa, I don't think you are going to have any problem filling this swap.

I just finished one of my more pressing swaps, so maybe I will play with inches tomorrow.

I took a picture of my full set of the alphabet which is what originally motivated me to start this swap. Thought you might enjoy seeing it.

Love it Melissa! Did you make it for a swap or just for fun? Are you going to mount them on something and frame it. It would also look good in a ABC album for your daughter.

I couldn't see the details very well. I don't how to do thumnails but if you put it in your SCS gallery we could a larger view of it. TFS

Duh!! (sorry hate when my boys say that but usually they are saying to each other seems okay when it is to your own stupidity)

I just had to press on the enlarge/minimism line and I could see the details. This is cool.

I pulled out some of the stamps that I plan to use. I think my f will have the words friends forever on it along with some stamped flowers in layers still planning the L but I keep going to the word love and some hearts. Mine will have more of a collage layered look I think. I have never actually made an inchie though I have made some square designs on cards that were probably along the lines of an inchie.

Sorry, I'm rambling...just using ya'all as a sounding board.

If we get enough people maybe we can start a second group! Do you suppose there is enough swappers to do two groups?

Smile Alpha Inchies

Hey, good day! I am finished with "V" already.
Could I please have the letter "Q"? (for fifty dollars..Wheel of Fortune!)
I would like two sets so I can make an "alpha book" for each of my children (adults) for their kids (when they have them someday..).

Thank you!
