I’ve discovered something.  I LOVE Inchies!  I can’t put them away.  I keep trying to, but I just love the feel of these little miniature “canvases”.  So why fight it!  lol  Today I have used some Inchies, Inchies+ and Twinchies and some of the many tiny vintage images on Graphic 45’s Christmas Past Collection “Letters to Santa” and “Deck the Halls” designer paper to make some miniature focal points for a couple of different Christmas card sets.  Graphic 45’s Christmas Past Collection “Let It Snow” designer paper was also used for a background design.

Here is the first set.

And here are the individual Inchie designs closeup.

After cutting out several of the vintage pictures I decided how I wanted to mix and match my Inchies with them.

I used Mod Podge to adhere the papers to the Inchies.  Once they had dried, a final coat was applied for a finished look.

Here is the second set.

And here are the closeups of each miniature scene.  Graphic 45’s Christmas Past Collection “The Holly and the Ivy”, “Glad Tidings”, “Carol of the Bells” and “Letters to Santa”, designer papers were also used for background designs.

  25. In preparing to leave a comment, it seemed that every fabulous adjective to describe your creative use for these “inchies” had been “taken” by others — some of the things I wanted to say were “incredible” – “Woza” — “beautiful” “adorable” — well they are truly all of these things! I can see why you are “hooked” — I want to be too!

  26. Eye popping gorgeous! The work you put into these is unbelievable! I am in awe of your attention to detail. These are just gorgeous. And the vintage images make them perfect with the inchies. Thanks for helping me to remember inchies. I have a box of them that I haven’t pulled out in months. Great inspirations! Best, Curt
