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....

Fast Finish Fun

Stampendous and Beacon Adhesives are teaming up this week and sharing some really great projects with you!  If you didn't already know, Beacon is the Official Glue of TLC's Craft Wars!  So you know it's gotta be the best!  For my project today I used Fast Finish Decoupage Glue.  It was so easy to work with and so much fun.

I chose to make a really simple project today.  I used a plastic pumpkin that I picked up on clearance after Halloween.  I thought I would make a simple Thanksgiving decoration.  I stamped Stampendous Autumn Words on plain white tissue paper with Tsukineko Rich Brown ink.  Then tore the tissue paper into about 2"x3" pieces and adhered them to the pumpkin with Fast Finish and then added another layer of the glue over the top to seal it all.  Unfortunately, I didn't get a good picture since it's really overcast here today.  


I think I may head out today and see if I can find a few more pumpkins.  My boys want to make some of their own.  It's an easy project that would be fun for kids.  They have the next few days off of school, so it will be a fun project for us to work on this week.

Be sure to check back here on Saturday for our big Stampendous/Beacon Blog Hop - you're sure to be inspired.  In the meantime, check out what some of my team mates have to share with you today.
