Catarina - Owner
HI! Welcome to my site!! My name is Catarina and I’m portuguese. I was born in Coimbra (Portugal) and we moved to USA when I was 12 years old. I always spoke portuguese at home and with friends, because I never wanted to forget, how to read or write in my native language. At 14 yrs old my brother was born and that’s when I was introduced to scrapbooking. I started creating his scrapbook pages! Besides a sister, I’m a mom to a 7 Year old boy name Sean and a wife to my hubby Danny. :0) They are both my inspiration and motivation to my creativity. Through out the years to keep memories alive I created scrapbook pages and smash book pages but about three years ago I was introduced to card making. With being in the US its hard to find cards in Portuguese language. So, I fentured on into creating the first Portuguese acrylic stamps and which I also did English stamps. I love everything about our stamps and the endless of creativity it brings to us. We hope that you enjoy our site. Scrool down to meet the rest of Docerela Team.

Hi my name is Sara I was born in the late 70s, married and mother of two sons who are the light of my eyes … The taste for art remote generations old family … but were the numbers they gave me the job. Motherhood made me rethink the designs of my existence and behold I could give life to my childhood dreams … I love crafts in general and I experienced everything that fascinates me …. But when I discovered Scrapbooking, I met a veritable explosion of information … to adopt to improve, to create within my true passion … the Cardmaking. Besides the possibility of creating something, Cardmaking allows me to highlight my personality of person who enjoys a certain nostalgia for the tastes and traditional worshiping and remembering the past and worry about memorizing moments to remember in the future of mother that wants to transmit moments passed on to future generations, particularly their children. That’s where the magic of Cardmaking … With full awareness of my limitations in this wide world, I thirst for learning and creating’ll always with great affection and dedication, carving my papers, giving meaning to my soul … I consider myself a restless creature that constantly seeks perfection …. I love paper, I love the vintage style and the colors that fascinate me are the pink, blue and brown, though I love all the colors in general … Techniques … now that’s a good thing to learn to name things and a lot to learn!!
