Inchie Friday ~ Inch by Inch

"YES ~ FINALLY!!!" Those were my son's words when he realized he was finally tall enough (54") to ride Raptor and Mantis at Cedar Point. Our family loves roller coasters & Matt is a total coaster freak! It was torture that he couldn't ride Raptor with all of us ~ but finally it happened ~ thus the name of this page Inch by Inch (perfect for Inchie Friday, don't you think?).

Last summer, we hit Cedar Point on Coaster Mania day, which is a special day set up for coaster club members. We got a family membership for Matt's birthday just so we could go to this event. The rides opened at 6am and we had a blast! Since Matt waited so long to hit that 54" mark, we had to note the occasion with a photograph!

Here is a little better picture of the pages ~ just so you can see all of the elements I've included on this one.
  • I used the white Inchie squares all over the place on these pages.
  • I stamped the cute little inch worm from Lockhart Stamp Company on three Inchie squares, colored them with copics, and then set eyelets in them so I could loop thread through them. I thought this was a fun new way to show off the Inchie squares (new for me anyway).
  • I also used some Inchie squares for the title. I covered them with cardstock & then stamped a background stamp and letters. I also added the little inch worm to the title so it would all pull together.

On the green "Inch" title, I stamped some measurement markings to make the letters pop. I also added one more inch worm Inchie square to the opposite page, so it would match the title page.

This is a bit of a different page for me, but it was fun putting it together. Sometimes I stress a bit about what should or shouldn't go into a page. Then I remember, there really aren't any right or wrong ways to scrapbook ~ so I just need to let go and have fun!

Supplies Used: Inchie Arts ~ White Inchie Squares; Stamps ~ Lockhart Stamp Co, Stampin' Up & Hero Arts (alphabets); Cardstock ~ SU; Ink ~ SU & Copics; Eyelets ~ SU; Thread ~ DMC; Buttons ~ SEI; Die Cut Letters ~ Cricut (Alphalicious cartridge); Cuttlebug embossing folders; Nestabilties.
