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....

First Aid Kit

Although this project doesn't include any stamping, it very easily could. I kept it simple since I was making 17 of them for end of year teachers' gifts. The first aid kit itself, is one from travel/trial size section at Target, it includes some bandaids and some cleansing wipes. It's a nice little size to keep in a glove compartment or desk. I decorated the outside with designer paper and printed my messages on the computer.

There was a little boy in our community who recently lost his battle with an inoperable brain tumor. He was a patient at Children's Memorial Hospital - so this gift and donation not only honors the teachers it is also in his honor.

Well, friends, I better get busy. I need to make a birthday card for my Aunt Maxine who is celebrating her 90th birthday this weekend!

If you have a chance, and you are on Facebook, check out the Stampendous page. They always have great posts and inspiration. Today one of my cards and my blog are featured! What an honor!

Take time to get inky today!
