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.

New Digital in Shop! Sign Language, I love you!


Just a quick post. I have a new image in the shop that incorporates sign language. I will probably be doing a few more of these as I have a couple of friends who are hearing impaired and I also have a few family members that are aids and use sign language in the schools. When one of my friends asked me about sign language stamps, I sent her a site that sells rubber stamps, but I thought I should make some of my own. 

So here is a copy of the new Digital that's in my Carmensplace Etsy Shop.

And here is a simple card I made up quickly.

That's it for today!

Have a great weekend!


  1. Hi Carmen,

    WOW - love love LOVE your blog! I can see what you mean, we have a LOT in common - and best of all our love for Jesus! I am so very glad we have connected. I look forward to seeing your cards and creations and getting to know you.


    1. Thank you Barb! We certainly do have a lot in common!! Love your blog as well! Who knew Instagram would find me a new friend?

  2. What a great idea Carmen - unfortunately sign language is not universal, and each country seems to have it's own variations... I think we tend towards the English based sing language here in New Zealand

    1. Thanks Maxine! Yes, that is a bit of a problem. I hope someone can use these though. I hope to do up a few more when I get a chance. :)


Thanks for the comments!
