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....

From the Kitchen of.....Me!

This was a hard one to get a good picture of.....I hope you get the idea.  I baked a loaf of banana bread for a friend, but wanted a fun way to "wrap" it.  So, I made a paper band and decorated it with the Stampendous! stamp set From the Kitchen.   It's a fun set to work with.  I randomly stamped various images from the set and colored them in with my Prismacolor pencils.  I then randomly added clusters of 3 dots with my Zig markers to fill space.  The center image is also included with the set (it is called "From the Kitchen" after all!)  I added 2 silver brads to embellish the name bar.

This would be a cute way to package baked goods for bake sales (note to self:  remember this for the Fall Bake Sale at church!!!).  It was quick and easy to make and could be done ahead of time and then wrapped around a loaf of bread at the last minute for a quick gift.  All the supplies (except the banana bread) are available at Michaels.

Hope all is well in your corner of the world....take time to get inky today.
