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....

Stampendous Gift Inspirations


This week, the Design Teams at Stampendous are bringing you some beautiful inspiration for gift giving.  I've seen some great projects featured already and it's only Wednesday!  Just wait until out big Gift Blog Hop on Saturday!  You'll have your holiday gifts made in no time!

The project I have for you today is one I made for Michaels Stamptember stamping celebration which lasts all month long on the Michaels website.   I made my version of a dry erase board.  I stamped a card stock panel with Stampendous I Love Paris and the Charm Collection stamps.  I colored the flowers with Copic markers and added a bit of Spun Sugar Distress Ink around the edges.  To add my title "Things To Do" I used letter stickers from EK Success.  Pop the card stock back in the frame and VOILA you're done!  Just write your to-do list on the glass using a dry erase marker and you'll always remember those little tasks that need to get done.





























recipe: Stampendous I Love ParisCharm Collection; Studio Decor 6" x 8" black frame; EK Success Mini Black Letters SR; Recollections White Card Stock; Tsukineko Tuxedo Black, London Fog inks; Copics R83, R85, YG63; Tim Holtz Spun Sugar Distress Ink; sponge dauber; dry erase marker


All the supplies used to make this project are available at Michaels.  Be sure to check out their website and their Facebook page for daily stamping inspiration this month.  Then stop by Michaels, pick up your supplies and get inky making a gift or two.

Be sure to check out my friend, Wendy's, blog to see what gifty inspiration she has to share with you today.  And don't forget, whenever you are looking for great project ideas, you'll definitely want to check out the Stampendous blog  - there are always great projects to be found.

I've been wanting to make a dry erase board but didn't realize you could just use the marker on glass. I love that the look could be changed by just replacing the stamped cardstock. This I can do! Thank you for the inspiration!
