CJS 2013



Creative Jumpstart 2013 is over.

Thank you to all the 6000 subscribers that participated!!!

Winners of Giveaway’s will be notified via the newsletter mid February 2013. 

You rock! 

Here we go again.  I am so so so excited 🙂

After last year’s success of Creative JumpStart I decided to organize it again. We had about 4.500 subscribers last year!  It was so much fun! So here is the scoop about it:

January is approaching–a month that is full with promises, resolutions and intentions. A month that for many is following lots of holiday celebrations, family gatherings and other end-of-the-year events.

I invited a group of wonderful, inspiring and creative ladies and gentlemen from around the globe in the mixed media and scrapbooking world to join together for the Creative Jump Start Summit 2013. We are coming together to show you some ways to get back into the creative groove and how to get your creative juices flowing. We want to share with you “3 Ways to …” help you jump-start your creativity in 2013.

Let me show you who is participating:

Here’s what you get and how it works:

  • 1. Throughout January we will share videos showing tutorials to inspire you –
  • 2. You sign up for the Creative JumpStart 2013 newsletter HERE and, in January 2013, you will receive  a daily link and password to unlock the view of the materials as soon as they go live  as Creative Jumpstart 2013 is over – I deleted the sign up link
  • 3. On some days our Sponsors will have a giveaway for you and you will receive two newsletters these days
  • 4. You watch the presentations and you will be hopefully inspired to be more creative—all for FREE! If you like it you can donate to the cause – check it out here.

So come on—get inspiration from some of the most creative people in the community

What are you waiting for? (Did I mention it’s FREE?)

  1. Hi Nathalie,

    I am finally trying out some techniques, loving it! Sharing it on my blog, instagram etc…SO I would like to know if it is okay to link to the right page per video (from the right corner cjs2013 links) or should I just link to this page? I mean is it now open for everyone to see, or still only for subscribers? I hope you know what I mean? xxDebbie

  2. Hi Natalie, I thought I had signed up for this in Jan. as I heard thru a friend… and I only rec’d my first newsletter today Feb 20th. Is there a link where we can still view the videos?? I’m sorry I missed it. Maybe next year…

    • That means that you signed up for my n*Studio newsletter but not for the Creative JumpStart newsletter. You missed the life event if you navigate to CJS 2013 on the right hand side you get pulldown menues with all the jumpstarts and can still see them.Nat

      Hi Rita, Hope you’re feeling better and recovering soon.
      The CJS will be available online until mid-year if you’re subscribed.
      I hope that’s plenty of time for you to recover and catch up with all the projects.
      Get well, Cuchy

  4. I just found out about this, and I am sorry that I missed it…maybe next year!

    • ScrappingCorner says:

      Barbar – it’s still going on, you can still watch all the old videos – I’m sure if you email Natalie she can set you up – so much inspiration from this!!

  5. Hallo Nat, heute hat’s mich aufgrund des CJS so sehr in den Fingern gejuckt, das ich als eigentlicher Nicht-Farben-Panscher ‘nen Keilrahmen rausgeholt habe und es einfach mal probiert habe. Hier findest du meinen “Versuch”: http://www.creativtante.blogspot.de/2013/01/experimentiert.html

  6. This is really wonderful opportunity.

  9. Oh wow – I nearly missed this!! Absolutely LOVED this last year, it really stood out for me as one of the things that got me creatively back in action. So THANK YOU!! for organising this again.

    A question though – I am wondering if there is a button I can add to my blog’s sidebar (with a link to this page)?

  10. Hi Nathalie- I think I only received the first two videos. One from Julie Fei-Fan Balzer and one from Heidi Swapp. Has there been more? Thank you so much for putting this together.

  11. Hello Nathalie,
    This is so exciting being connected with so many creative individuals and learning new techniques. Thank you so much for this creative jump start fun month.

  12. This is an amazing undertaking… thank you so much for your time and efforts in organising it all! I’m slightly late to the party, as I only just heard about it, but can’t wait to get stuck in…
