Creative JumpStart 2018 | Are you ready to Jump?!

Yes!!!! I’m excited to announce that I’ll be participating as an artist in Nathalie Kalbach’s Creative JumpStart (CJS) again in 2018!!!

If you’re not familiar with CJS, this is the 7th (!) edition of a one-of-a-kind online event to kick your creativity into gear in January 2018.

It’s so much fun to participate! I always pick up new techniques, discover new materials, and of course connect with other artists and crafters.

Throughout January participants get access to 31 downloadable videos from 31 featured artists. I’m proud to be one of those artists, who Nathalie calls “JumpStarters”.

See for yourself:

Head on over to Nat’s site to sign up and for more details:

StencilGirl® Products | Guest Designer

Marsha Valk | StencilGirl Products: Accordion FoldI’m super honoured and excited to tell you that StencilGirl® Products has invited me to guest post on their blog!

As you know, I use the stencils Nathalie Kalbach designed for StencilGirl® all the time, and I’m a big fan of the product as well as the designs!

StencilGirl® Products has a huge team of artists working with them, and there is an extensive collection of fab StencilGirl® designs available.

I got to pick three new (to me) stencils to play with for my guest post.

It was super hard, but I seriously love the ones I chose, and they go really well with the Nathalie Kalbach designs I already had!

Enjoy your day!
