Feature Friday Guest Designer - Vivi!!!

Hi all, this week we have a super talented Guest Designer showcased at the Cafe. Her name is Viviane, otherwise known as Vivi. We're so excited to have her agree to be a Guest Desiger, so thanks Vivi!

Q & A with Viviane Casale "Vivi"
I am Viviane Casale, 41 yo and live in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Q: What got you started crafting?
A: I started in the crafting world when I first saw a bookmark made with quilling techinique few years ago.. I just couldn't believe that a strip of paper could make such beautiful things.. so I dedicated the last 4 years to quilling, learning how to make cards, bookmarkers, miniatures and others things until I found digital and rubber stamps and how cute they are!! So I have been working with stamps for over a year and loving it...

Q: What could you not live without (craft related that is)?
A: I found so many great tutorials that teach you how to work with a techinique.. I just love it !! I had no idea how many beautiful cards we could do with a stamp.. lol I must confess I would not be able to make a card without the tutorials.. they make our lives so easy!! I'm so thankful to them!!

Q: What is your embellishment of choice?
A: One of the many things I leanrt and adore is how to use ribbon on the card.. oh, it makes the card so charming and elegant.. It is funny, but now I cannot make a card without a ribbon on it.. this is one of my favorite embellishements for making cards.
Anyway, I'm so addicted to card making now that can't stop and don't want to stop...

Here is what Vivi created for her showcase using Bertie n Friend digi image from the July Release at the Cafe.
