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....

Welcome to another week long collaboration! This week we're playing with Core'dinations' gorgeous papers! There is a huge variety of papers that are perfect for just about every project!  


For my card today, I used the fabulous Tim Holtz Kraft-Core paper and ran it through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder and then sanded it with my Sand It Gadget.  This adorable image is Umbrella Nap by Stampendous.  I colored Bumble with my Spectrum Noir markers and sponged the inside of my circle die with Distress Inks.  A bit of May Arts ribbon and my card is done.


So, here's where the fun begins...visit the participating blogs this week and leave comments along the way to be in the running for a great prize package!
The official rules are HERE. You still need a U.S. mailing address to win, but we sure want to hear your comments anyway! We'll draw three random blog posts from all the posts this week. Then we'll choose one comment from each. Of course we'll love you even more if you pin our projects to your Pinterest Boards or if you Tweet, or Share on Facebook, follow us, like our pages.
