Welcome to Paper Inkspirations!

Hi! My name is Krissy, welcome to my blog. I have been an avid paper-crafter for many years, my addiction started with scrapbooking and has evolved to card-making. It all started when I realized that I had forgotten to buy a card for my nephew's birthday. Looking at my ever-expanding collection of scrapbook supplies, I thought I'd made a card for him. Since then, I've been hooked on card-making and my scrapbooks have been collecting dust. Someday I'll get back to them... I have two beautiful boys and a wonderful & supportive husband and I work at the Preschool at our church. When I'm not spending time with my family or making cards, I enjoy being active in our church. Life is good! Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy your visit.

Take time to get inky today....

Cold Hard Cash

Every year for my niece's birthday, I give her one dollar for each birthday. Well, this is how I decided to package her ten bucks this year. I cut a water bottle around the center, glued snowflakes inside the bottle, added the cash and taped the bottle shut before adding the label and decorating. It was a fun gift to create and one I'm sure she'll get a kick out of receiving.

recipe: Paper: The Paper Co; stamps: Hero Arts Cute Letters, Hero Arts Winter's Butterfly; Ink: Tsukineko Graphite Black, VersaMagic Red Brick; Martha Stewart Snowflake Punch; ribbon: JoAnns; button probably off an old pair of pajamas!
