{8.19.2011} hello friends…

Assemble This! returns.

Happy day my Friends with Flair Unity peeps.
Don’t you just LOVE that sweet dress form stamp?  It is one of my new faves from the ‘share your smile‘ itty bitty just released.  I actually can’t wait to break it out again.

Most of you know about my obsession with the shabby chic style and have finally merged my CAS (clean and simple) style with it.  So, I’m calling my new style shabby simple.  Ha.

I’m excited to say I have an Assemble This! video for today as well.
It has been a LONG, LONG break.  So, I hope you enjoy the return.
Please excuse my oopsies.  I’m a little out of practice.

Oops, I almost forgot…

Fabulous chance to stock up on the kit of the months you missed and all that great discounted Unity!!!

Thanks for stopping by and remember to head back
to the Unity blog to visit the rest of the Friends with Flair.

    LOVE your ‘shabby simple style’! I also adore all those wonderful papers but struggle with those paper layers that everybody else seems to do with ease… usually the more I put on a card, the more I take off! Your design style is awesome and I love that you have found time to make videos again, they are so inspiring!

    Such a beautiful card, Lisa! The patterned paper is perfect; it looks just like retro dress material. You could call your new style Clean and Shabby — then you wouldn’t have to change the acronym! 😀
