Guest Designer

Carmen of Beyond the Fringe Crafts




Hello, my name is Carmen. My earliest memory of scrapbooking goes back to before it was considered a craft. I had a photo album to which I added cartoon cut-outs, Chinese money bags, four leaf clovers and whatever else appealed to me at the time. Officially, I have been scrapbooking about 7 years, with a more recent focus on card making. I’ve always been a creative person who loves to sew, make soap and play classical guitar. I write short stories, poems and non-fiction articles as well, and I love to read!

This experience involved a few firsts for me, as it was my first time being a guest designer, my first time using digital stamps, and my first time using alcohol ink markers. I really enjoyed the process of putting this together, and I hope you like the card I designed! It was created with my son in mind, who just bought a new home. The sentiment reads, Congratulations on your new ‘pad.’

Thanks so much for the opportunity to participate!

Carmen
