My two year involvement at MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) has been invaluable to myself and my family. As a mother, I have an incredible opportunity to make an impact on society through raising well rounded, caring individuals who contribute to the betterment of our world. MOPS has played a vital role in educating and equipping me to do just that. Not only am I able to enrich my own family through MOPS, but I also get opportunities to serve moms less fortunate than myself through community service and scholarship opportunities.
I very rarely ask anyone to donate to anything, but this is a great cause that most Moms can relate to. If you choose to partner with me in supporting this amazing cause your donation will go to help scholarship new moms and offset the cost of childcare during our MOPS meetings. Every penny stays within our group!
I know times are tough and I completely understand. So if you are not in a position to give, please accept this post merely as an update on what is happening in my life these days. If you are able to contribute to this cause, ANY amount is appreciated.
You can donate by clicking on the link to the right or by clicking here. Thanks so much! *Ü*
Now back to your regularly scheduled programming. LOL!

A host of new discounted items will be available on my website including stamp sets, favorite paper packets, accessories, and more! There will be a little of something for everyone at a phenomenal 40% off retail pricing!
If any of you remember the last time CTMH released discontinued and discounted items on our websites, there was a frenzy right at 7am and many of the great products were gone within the hour. So, if you are interested in seeing what is available at these great prices, I suggest visiting my website right at 7am on Monday morning so you don't miss out.
Here is another tip to make your online shopping experience a little easier. With the site upgrade last month, we can now store your account information for you. (No need to re-enter your contact info each time you shop. Plus you will be able to look up all of the items you have previously ordered.) Because you need to set up your account the first time you shop, I suggest going to my site before Monday and setting up an account so that it is all ready for you when you hop on at 7am Monday morning. (This way you won't waste any valuable time setting up your account on Monday.)
Another note about my website—if you have the site bookmarked on your computer, you will need to delete it, type in “lisa.myctmh.com” and then re-bookmark the site again. For some reason the old links and bookmarks don't work anymore.

I used the True Treasures set to stamp the cute squares and then matted them with Chocolate cardstock. My new Intrinsic Backgrounds set was used to stamp the flowers in the background on the 3x3 cards. I trimmed a bit off the bottom with my scallop scissors and added a strip of Chocolate cardstock on the inside. I added a little piece of Chocolate ribbon at the top from the Chocolate Ribbon Rounds to finish off the cards. They are very simple but kind of cute. I just love those cute little images in the True Treasures set.
You can check out a tutorial on how to make these cute little photo wallets here.

Tricia, love the idea of using the tower to store ink pads. If I don't sell the last one I may end up doing that. *Ü*
Sarah, I have tried to figure out a way to contact you, but can't seem to find an email address for you. Would you mind emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org? Thanks!

The first one was inspired by a card that Kacey Elliott made with Papertrey Ink stamps. I loved it and knew I wanted to recreate it using CTMH products. I used the stamp set called Key to my Heart that comes in the National Papercrafting Month promotion kit. Click here for more info on that kit and click here for a chance to win one! I punched tiny holes in the hearts and the background and then strung some Colonial White Waxy Flax through them to make them look like they were hanging. I attached them with 3-D Foam Squares. The sentiment came from the February Word Puzzle stamp set. The background paper is from the That's Amore paper packet.
This card was inspired by Kristina Werner. She uses this simple design on many of her cards and since I want to be just like her when I grow up, I do also. This card also uses the That's Amore paper packet along with some Chocolate Grosgrain Ribbon and stamps from the Soul Mates Word Puzzle and the February Word Puzzle sets. I also used some 3-D Foam Squares as I do on many of my projects. I sanded the white core cardstock with CTMH's Sanding Kit and rounded the corners with a Corner Rounder.
This one might look familiar because I designed it a while back using the Silhouette paper packet and a few others as shown here. I recreated it again using the That's Amore paper. I used the Rustic Alphabet stamps for the word “TRUE” and the February Word Puzzle for the word “love.”
This last one is another recreation of a card I did a long time ago. Here is one sample of an older version using the Floral Tapestry paper. It uses one of my favorite stamp sets of all time called Simple Stitches. If you like the look of sewing on your cards and layouts but don't like to take the time to do it, this stamp set is the perfect solution. I also used a Big Pinks Paper Flower along with a stamped image (friend) from the September Word Puzzle covered with a Circle Window Charm as a little accent. The words “Forever & Always” come from the Friendship Word Puzzle. This card design is perfect to make with those little scraps that you hate to throw away.
