A big inch...

Every Inchie Monday #16: Big
Something big on an inch of paper... Oxymoron?
I asked the kids for something big to draw and my son said dino... So dino it was...

I don't make a lot of cards, I like making them. But only do it when there is an occasion where I need one. This weekend there was a confirmation in the family, this is what I came up with...
I am really fond of my alphabet stamp set because it's so quirky with it's uneven size of letters. But for this one I wish I had one that was more formal looking... Another thing for my wishlist... ;)

Flippin' books...

Every Inchie Monday #16 : Poetry
Ugh... Tough one!!
A tiny little poem... And here it is in my journal...

 Snail Mail Flip Book
 This is my second snail mail flip book. It's also my new addiction...
The 'hello' was sent to as goodie in a pocket letter along with a ton of other die cuts. I am really loving them. They are all white, so I watercolored it in a matching color.
This one got a little (a lot) bulky so I had to tie a ribbon around it to keep it fairly closed. 

On the first page I made a little pocket for some journaling cards. There is a tiny card in the tiny envelope...
My letter is clipped to the back of the flower card which flips upwards...
Under it is a little bag of butterflies die cut pieces and under that is a piece of acetate with some stickers from fruit which my partner in this swap collects...

Inside the flip book...
I attached some cardstock to the back of the bicycle card to make a pocket for some washi samples.
The tag flips up....
And behind it you find a little envie with stickers...
When I glued two pieces of cardstock together for this page I made a pocket for some journaling tags...
Last page... The polka dot bag holes some diy paper bows...
My swap partner also collects coins so I found a Danish one a taped it in the corner...
Into the envie and off to Canada!

Something fishy...

Every Inchie Monday #15: Fish
Flowers and animals, those are my favorite things to draw, so this was a nice and easy one. (I see next week is poetry... Oh my...)
Here we have it in my journal it is very own frame...
Actually doodling frames is a favorite too!

Snail mail love...

Every Inchie Monday #14: Grandmother
I feel a bit like I cheated with this one as I dug out a picture of my mum (turns out I take way to few pictures of my mum!), grandma of my daughter who's back you also see...
Ah well, I had a great time looking a pics!


Flip Book
I came across a tutorial video on youtube and fell in love... 
I watched a ton of videoes of flip books in all shapes and sizes. And just when I decided I had to put down the ipad and pick up some paper... There was a flip book swap on swap-bot!

So here's my very first flip book...
The front is very simple because the paper was so adorable...
It ended up being quite bulky so a little ribbon with a bow keep it closed.
Open up to a cup of tea and, since it was easter time, some bunny buttons!
I made the envelopes, there's 3 for her to use.
Not done yet!
Jumping into the deep end with my first one... 4 pages!
The envie holds a letter. The pink journal card flips up, as does the tag behind. I hid some goodies in there...
Notice something sticking out on the top? I made a pocket when gluing two papers together and put some tags in it.
 Flip to the other side and find a half page that flips up and reveals more goodies. For the last page I made a pocket to hold journal cards and sticky notes.
Into an envie and off to the United Kingdom...

This was so much fun to make and I have finished my second today, that one goes to Canada...
Let's make another!
