Creative Team Thursday with Kristin Van Valkenburgh

It's September 1st - and here to kick off our Creative Team Thursday series is Kristin Van Valkenburgh, with an amazing tutorial!  Make sure you tune in every Thursday for amazing videos and tutorials.

At Your Fingertips: Organizing your Stamps & Stencils!


Hi there! I’m Kristin Van Valkenburgh, a Mixed Media Artist from Southern California, and am thrilled to be kicking off the first of what will be an entire year’s worth of videos and posts, from the new Jessica Sporn Designs Creative Team.

What exactly will we do? Play of course! As you may know, Jessica has designed a beautiful collection of Stencils through Stencil Girl, and Stamps through Rubbermoon and I for one, have been chomping at the bit to work with both!

So for this first video, I thought it would be appropriate to share a quick and easy way to store and organize all of our favorite Stamps & Stencils . . . at our fingertips! I hope you’ll find it fun, functional and perhaps even inspirational in creating your own little catalogue(s) of color!



Until we meet again,  Kristin xo


A childhood obsession with Hollywood starlets led to an early life in the theater, where Kristin Van Valkenburgh spent many happy days on set and behind the scenes as both an actress and makeup artist for the stage. Kristin has a passion for all things mixed media and loves to create whimsical pieces with lots of layers, bright, poppy colors, big eyes and positive affirmations. Her work has been featured in numerous Stampington publications including Somerset Studio, SomersetStudio Gallery, Somerset Life, Somerset Apprentice, Artists’ Cafe and Art Journaling.  Find Kristin on her blog, YouTube, Facebook and Instagram.

  7. Loved the colours and the cards, but I hope you can tell me how to slow down the video just a little. I could not see the items you held up to the camera - they flashed by too fast!
