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....

Penny Black Snowman

What's this????  Three days in a row that I'm posting?????  AMAZING!  Let's hope it's a habit!

Today I wanted to show you the thank you notes I made for our family's Christmas gifts.  I made a few extra and stamped other greetings so I can use them throughout the winter for birthdays or just "thinking of you" notes.

Not only does this card use one of my favorite snowman images, I also got to use my new Cuttlebug machine!  I've been wanting one for years, and Mom and Dad surprised me with one for Christmas - it was, hands down, my favorite Christmas gift!  I'm sure it will get a good workout on my craft table!  Also, I used Copics for the first time.  I definitely need a lot of work on my Copic skills!  I don't have many yet, but they are fun to use.
