Awesome Autumn is the perfect class to welcome all things FALL! We will be creating 3 unique cards from start to finish! Jenn will have dedicated time to go over the Copic coloring of all the images as well as provide coloring guides. Jenn will share instructions for building scenes with your cards and tips to encourage you to look at your stamp sets a bit differently. As always throughout the class tips and tricks will be shared. Jenn will also share the designs of 2 bonus cards, using the supplies we used in class. Tons of inspiration for you to use with your crafty supplies!
** Note: The LIVE portion has already taken place. Class resources are available. A replay of the class videos, group participation, coloring guides, and handouts **
- session one: Copic coloring instruction, and other techniques
- session two: card assembly, tips tricks, and processes
If you can’t attend LIVE, you will always be able to watch the replays.
All of the class videos are available to watch via a private YouTube link, you DO NOT need to have a Facebook account to be part of this class. A private Facebook group will still be an option for those who would like to join to share their cards, and share ideas. If you can’t attend the class LIVE you can watch the videos whenever it is convenient for you.
Please note it may take time to be approved into the Facebook group as this is a manual process that Jenn does.

How this will work:
Once you have purchased this online class, you are able to access the class resource page by logging into your account www.shurkus.com/my-account , choosing “classes & events” and then choosing this class. On the class resource page, you will find the downloadable class supply list and class prep handout. This will include the details of what to have stamped, die-cut, and pre-cut ahead of time before you watch the class videos. You will also find the details about the class LIVES which are hosted on private YouTube links. As the class gets closer the class handout will be posted here as well.
There will also be a link to the class Facebook group which is optional to join. In the group class attendees will be able to share what they created, their crafty space, pets “helping” to craft etc.
When requesting to join the private Facebook group, please be sure to answer the 3 questions, this will help me verify that you are signed up.
With the supplies you have gathered ahead of time you will be able to watch the videos and create right along with Jenn as she teaches. You will be able to comment, ask questions, and interact with other students. You can also share your projects in the Facebook group or on social media using the hashtag #CreativeChickClasses. If you happen to miss the live broadcast, or if you want to rewatch it, it will be permanently saved on YouTube. You can also ask me questions in the Facebook group, but you can also email me questions if you are not in the group.

I love all of Jenn’s classes – but loving all things fall – this one was a favorite. We get to practice a variety of techniques – ink blending, Copic coloring, stencils, die cuts and the results are so darn cute. I love the virtual format.. Jenn paces her classes beautifully but if it’s taking me a little longer for a particular technique, I don’t feel the pressure to hurry like I would in a live class. I have always loved Lawn Fawn stamps. Jenn’s classes get me to actually use them. Join in the fun – you will have a blast!

Another wonderful Lawn Fawn class taught by Jenn, I enjoy taking Jenn’s classes because I always learn something new. My Copic coloring has significantly improved since taking my first virtual class with her last year. Before Jenn, I would only ink blend with Distress Oxides but now I can comfortably blend with Distress Ink or Oxide ink. I appreciate that her online classes are much different than the “Create with Us” classes even when she uses the same stamp set. And I also appreciate that she encourages you to use what you have for supplies. I highly recommend that anyone who likes to create fall cards or who just wants to learn more techniques takes this class.
