What indeed - The quickest way I've found to use them is to add them to your cards or tags like toppers.
Or you could put them in groups and put them in photo frames or shadow boxes.
I've even seen them made into fabulous pieces of jewellery although I haven't tried this yet. What do you do with your inchies???

I love the criss cross card technique - and this was one I started ages ago but couldn't think how to finish off. I used some pieces from SU scrapping sets and Laura Ashley embellishment tin. The little heart locket is from Molly Daydream. I've used paper to edge the bottom of the card and completed the look by using it again on the insert. The stamped sentiment is SU.
I wanted to do a canvas of our trip to Rome and got some inspiration today. I decided to put the photo in black and white as there is enough colour in the embellishments and it shows off the picture better. I've used Stampin Up's Simply Scrappin set here for the papers and some of the embellishments - this set is called Secret Garden. The letter stickers are by Cloud 9 Design and continue the Italian theme as they are called Milan! The flowers is from my new Laura Ashley tin. I'll leave it on the table it the lounge this evening and see how long it takes for the family to spot it!

This is a Cherry Pie Art Stamp - isn't it fabulous? Marina does some fabulous stamps if you haven't heard of them before - I would recommend checking them out.
This image was taken from a little book of ATC's I was given last year - I knew it would come in handy! LOL
This is a Stampin Up stamp set.
