Hi, my name is Carmen. Welcome to Beyond The Fringe!

I love sewing, crocheting, paper crafts, painting, doodling and more. I also offer digital stamps and vintage graphics, many for free. I am a mom of 4 and a grandmother of 10 adorable grandkids, whom I love to make things for.

Check out my Etsy Digi Shop!

Please see my Digital Stamps page for terms of use on freebies and some helpful information on digital stamps. My Freebies page has a list of the freebies on this blog.

About Me


                     It's so good to have you stop by!


This little spot of the web is a place where I share a little bit of myself with you! I've always been a creative person and I love to learn new things. This tendency eventually brought me to creating digital stamps. In addition, I love to draw and doodle and try to incorporate that into my cards and papercrafts. Sewing and crocheting are also loves of mine. I have sewn professionally for a company that created european style children's clothing.

I would like to take up painting sometime in the near future. I love the impressionist style!

You will find quite a few free digi's on this blog (check out my freebies page at the top of the blog), and I sell others in my Etsy Shop.

Thanks again for coming by! I hope you enjoy your visit!

Carmen
