Hi, my name is Carmen. Welcome to Beyond The Fringe!
I love sewing, crocheting, paper crafts, drawing, doodling and more. I also like to create digital stamps and sometimes offer vintage graphics, many for free. I am a mom and a grandmother of 8 adorable grandkids whom I love to make things for.

Soar, Dream, Live...and Ride!
As I'm going along, I'm seeing things that I find interesting, and want to share them with you. It's safe to say that from now on you'll find a variety of things here. =D
Anyhoo...here is the first of a few cards I'm making.
I used Graphic 45 paper from the 'A Proper Gentleman' paper pad to make this card. The card is kind of minimalist, but I think that's okay for a guy. They don't need a lot of pomp and fancy.
I used a little metal clock embellishment on the front as well. Sorry, but I can't remember where I got it from--I sure like it though!
Well, that's my card for now.
BUT, while I'm on the topic of Men and their likes, this one comes from IZZY!
My sister Izzy made two frames this past Christmas for her Motorbiking son and husband. They live up in Quesnel, BC which is perfect territory for this kind of activity!!
Here is the frame she made up for her husband. (I like her chocolate brown walls)
I took the matting out of another picture frame knowing that I wanted to do something unique for my guys this Christmas.
I distressed all the matting uses CTMH black ink.
To spice things up a little, I randomly stamped Motor bike sayings here and there. It was looking a little blah, so I took a thick black felt pen, and after practising on some scrap paper until it looked like a tire track, I drew the tracks on the frame.
Thanks for looking!
Well, thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed our projects. We love to hear from you, so leave a comment if you have a moment. Have a good weekend!
