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....

Dear Blog....

Dear Blog,

Oh, how I miss you!  I miss getting inky, I miss the smell of new rubbah, I miss the feel of the paper, the shimmer of the ribbon, the sparkle of the bling, the shine of the embossing powder......I miss it all!  I promise I'll be back soon.  Just as soon as I get the boys off to school next week.  I'm sure I'll miss them terribly (the first few days anyway), but I'll LOVE to have my stamping time again!  Maybe I'll finally get some long-planned projects completed! 

Just wanted to drop you a quick note to tell you I'm thinking about you!

See you soon!

Love, Krissy

Happy Birthday, Brad!

You know how I love my little buddy, Changito!  I had to get him good and inky for my nephew's birthday card.  This little guy couldn't resist digging into the birthday cake (neither can I!)  I paired this image with DCWV Animal Crackers Mat Stack.  I love the the little leaves are glittered.  This was my first attempt at a multi panel card - I found a YouTube video by Dawn.  She has some great videos online - take a look!

While I'm here, I thought I'd share a picture I took of my nephew, Brad, this afternoon. Brad is a good boy and always eager to help everyone.  At 9 years old, he is a bundle of energy and I'm so proud to be his Aunt and Godmother.  Our family (10 of us) are all enjoying our annual getaway in Wisconsin.  While we're here, we always celebrate August birthdays (Brad, my Mom, my hubby and my SIL).  We've been busy partying! 

Happy Birthday, Brad!!!!

Ok, friends, gotta skedaddle!  Time to get back to my family.  Hope you're all having a good day and that you'll take time to get inky today.
