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....

The Lord Shine on You

This card was created as a farewell card for the Director of Preschool at our church. She is a wonderful woman, and will be greatly missed by our church, the staff, the students and the families. And especially me! This was a fun card to create. Although I'm still a little uneasy when it comes to mixing patterned papers, I've found that if I use a DCWV Matstack they've taken all the work out of it for me. All the papers are coordinated, the hard part is choosing which Matstack to use!

It's hard to tell in the photo, but I've stamped a Sunlit Cross behind the scripture in Galaxy Gold. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig for the first time one this card to create that panel so it all lined up nicely. What a great tool!

Better run. I've promised the boys popcorn tonight while we watch "Mulan." Time to get poppin'!

I'll be back in the coming days, I've been busy and have a lot to show you! Take time to get inky today!
