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.

I don't know if I've mentioned it but I finally received my Black Cat Lynx Cutter a couple of weeks ago. I've been sitting on it a bit, because I knew I'd need some time to figure this baby out.
There is a bit of a learning curve, but I can already tell that I prefer the Lynx to the Cricut. In addition to cutting, it can write, engrave and emboss!! Talk about versatile! I love that.
So, here's one of my first cuts, and words with the Lynx:
In addition to the free Digital Stamps I bring you, I'm hoping to eventually also have some Cut Files available that will work with SCAL and MTC sometime in the future. In the mean time, I want to mention this:
*If you currently own a Cricut and are using your machine with SCAL or MTC - here's a word to the wise...DO NOT UPDATE THE FIRMWARE as is recommended...your machine will no longer work with anything but Cricut cartridges if you do.
I have a Ridgeview class coming up soon. (I was planning on teaching classes all summer, but after I got bit in the face by a German Shepherd, I decided I needed some time to heal). I`m hoping to use my Lynx to make a pop up card with them, and will post it here when I do.
BTW, it's healing, but I definitely have a scar. Make up IS my friend! Lol...
Have a good weekend everyone!
