Remarkable.

https://scontent-ort2-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/22196319_10212886153175822_3817418355489421366_n.jpg?oh=16abbc240c94852bc24ba7f2c43c8583&oe=5A3B4BCC


I want to post and to work on my craft room just about every day, but I am still trying to get all my schedule back in order, and it has been a bit on the challenge side. For good reasons, so let me be thankful for that.

I did take a break from my daily duties and spend some times creating. Today's card is for Dostamper Stars 252. Since I have met some truly remarkable people in my life, this goes to all of you out there. I love the Painted Harvest stamp set and decided to go with that today. The color combo sure helps the flower to come alive. The sentiments is from the Remarkable You stamp set. A remarkable card, with a remarkable small amount of supplies. Truly remarkable. I think I will make a few more and sent them out to all the remarkable people out there.

Thank you for visiting today. Remember that I am a simple e-mail away if you have any question. Be well.

I am back.

It has been a very long time since I last wrote to you all and let me tell you I miss you. I did finish my kitchen and it looks wonderful Soon after the completion of the project, my mom arrived from Brazil to stay with us for 40 days. We are enjoying here before she goes home on Friday.

I have done some work around my craft room, but did not spend much time there lately. I work today on a card for the DSC 251 and since I needed some Sympathy Card I went for that. Here I used the Whole Lot of Lovely DSP as well as the Coffee Break DSP and they are both currently on sale! For the image I used the Touches of Texture stamp set, and the sentiment from Rose Wonder stamp set. I hoarded a bunch of Chevron ribbon in the past, so I got some out for today's project. The flowers from the image got a bit of color and all was done.

Thank you so much for visiting today and for the e-mails. Know that all is well and I will soon be in the swing of things again. Be well

A break, finally.

Dear friends and readers,

Oh my, it has been a long time since I posted anything here for you. The remodeling is in the final stages, with detail work now to be completed. The kitchen is fully operational, so I am happy with that. Little time has been spend in my craft room, but I manage some here and there.


DSC#245


This week I was able to get in the craft room and work a bit. I got my new supplies and was looking forward to using them. The cad below is what I crated for the DoStamper Stars 245.


The new set Seasonal Lantern is stunning and I could not wait any longer to put it to use. I like the colors of the challenge and decided to go with a Holiday Theme. A super easy card that was made even more beautiful by the embossing of both the Menorah and the sentiment. I did fussy cut the Menorah and added a dimensional to put in a bit of 3d. Love the result and hope it will inspire you today.

Thank you for your visit. Be well

Miriam

Am I out yet?

Image may contain: text



It has been an eternity since I posted anything. My life is consumed by the renovation of our kitchen, but, I must say, we are very happy as it is turning out. We have the kitchen fully functional now, but there are lots of details to finish up. Our dining room is getting a fresh coat of paint and then we need to tidy things up. My mother has also decided to come visit us at the end of the month, so I have a big incentive to finish it all up.

Miriam Castanho-Bollinger, #mstampinwithyou, stampin up, demonstrator, dsc, all occasions card, masculine card, coffee break dsp, jar of love stamp set, everyday jars framelit, big shot, su


I have snicked around to get some "me" time in my craft room and it felt so wonderful to have that time to create. Today I prepared a card for Dostamper Stars 243 and I used the Coffee Break DSP for the background and for the image I use the Jar of Love stamp set and matching framelit. The card has a neutral feel to it, so it can easily be used for a male friend too. I was about to add some rhinestone and flowers, but liked the more organic nature of the card, so I left it alone.

Life will soon resume to normal. I will have my mother visiting, we will start school, the renovation will be completely done, and I will be spending more time with you too. Until then, know that I have appreciated your support, friendship, and understanding. Be well

Miriam
