I'm guessing a new fad has arrived. I've been seeing the word Twinchies posted every where but I don't really know what they are. I saw some on my FB page but no details what they actually are. Anyone know?

I googled them and just incase anyone wants to know..there are inchies, betwinchies, twinchies, Rinchies, rolo art, and moo cards. I'm behind the times!! I found definitions for them all at this site...

There was a big post on inchies/twinchies/etc., on the old MB and there was a new one started when they moved to these servers (several years ago). They were really cute; everyone was making them (not me).

I did make three and placed on a card once; don't know if I can find the card, I'll try.

The new thread started here early on....and, I went back to see if they posted their creations a year or so ago, but I could never find the thread again. It was in another forum.

To me, it was about using up your scraps and cutting them into squares (the pieces you could do that with) and perusing them rather than throwing them out with the scraps.

Char

Sorry, I can't enlarge this in IE, so if you're using IE you probably won't see it...it's the card in the upper far left corner (didn't take individual pics of these, I guess). I really did enjoy making those INCHIES!

I did an inchie and a twinchie swap on the swap thread here 2-3 years ago. A twinchie is a two inch embellished square. An inchie is a one inch embellished square.
It was fun.

They renamed them..back in my day they was called serendipity squares and deco squares. I've got tons from swaps I participated in over 10 years ago. I like the new cute names.

Too funny! Don't stop at crafting words!!! At first when I saw it I thought it was along the lines of twreking. Unsure But then it was in my scrapping world so I knew it couldn't be anything related to dancing. My 1968 websters dictionary is way behind on words and definitions! Thank goodness I have the internet and can google anything :)

This is a very informative thread. I had no idea what the heck twinchies were. At first I thought JoyceG spelled 'Twinkies' wrongLOL. See where my head is at? Thanks to you all, I'm in loop and know what inchies, twinchies, and rinchies are.ThumpUp

Char, your cards are lovely.

Best, Mary R.

A few years ago when I did swaps I did an "Inchies, Twinchies, Thrinchies" swap. You could use any shape but the inchies were one inch, twinchies two, thrinchies three. We each made 20 of our design, embellished it and used at least two layers (and we didn't use cereal box stock, either) because there were 20 people in each category. The hostess sorted them, and you got back a package of 20 different "-nchies" for the size you signed up for. It was great fun!!

I did tiny, one-inch elephants with a teeny, tiny heart tip pasted in between the layers at the end of his trunk. And I got nineteen other really cute pieces.

I use to participate in swaps back when I first got hooked on scrapping and swaps. We called them serendipity squares or deco squares back then. But I ended up with so much that I stopped doing swaps. I still have piles of stuff from swaps I haven't used yet.

New idea for JoyceG in 2014.......pull out one of those "swaps" and make a new card/project out of it! You need more to do, right?

Ummm..yeah, right!!! I will get right on that!!! I also use to participate in page kit swaps so I even have tons of those still waiting to be used. IF I would only get in there and put the stuff together..I'd have my wall lined with shelves filled with completed scrapbooks!!

I am so bad that I still have the past 2 years of photos to get printed out!!! I'm such a procrastinator!!!Wink

I am my own procrastinator!! I'm right there with you....probably worse so, though!

I don't know why that is. My mom always got so much done all the years I watched her do crafts all my growing up years to age 62! She dabbled in EVERYTHING. I just dabble in cards and trying to do my parents' 66 years together (only one page finished to date)! I'm such a failure1

You are not a failure!! Just not in a hurry to get it done. I know the reason I haven't got pics printed is because of money and my house falling apart and and getting the work done. You will get them done when you are ready and motivated.
