A little 'Inchie' book

This has been my obsession over the past week.

It's a little 'inchie' book -- 2 1/2" tall and 1 1/2" wide. (Although I think an 'inchie' is really an inch-square collage. But anyway.) When I saw this project at the Stampington website, I just had to try it. Right then. At 5: 45 a.m.

I put it together using materials on hand. So some of the pages are rather boldly patterned papers, but I think they work. This is maybe my favorite spread -- with the tiny ferris wheel on one side.

I love this page with Mr. Lincoln, too.

Each page is a little collage, and I found the size to be so right for a project to turn back to again and again in the spare moments of my days. And I can't wait to do another. Maybe one for Christmas? What do you think?

The inchie is fab! I am inspired to make one toooo. Great as a greeting card?

That is cute! If you have looked at my site lately I have been getting carried away with buying lots of paper stuff and scrapbooking stuff. So this is a good way to use some of it.
What makes the base of the little books, cardboard?

What a neat project to do. You have a very nice blog.

I like to take bits and pieces of the great outdoors and bundle them together. Sweet!! MB

A Christmas book (or two or three!) would be sooooo much fun!!
