Bubbles of Fun – Online Class
** Note: The LIVE portion has already taken place. Class resources are available. A replay of the class videos, group participation, coloring guides, and handouts **
Join Jenn Shurkus for an online class, hosted in a private Facebook group!
Bubbles of Fun is an opportunity to create 3 unique cards from start to finish with Jenn including the new Swish ‘n Pop interactive card! Jenn will have dedicated time to go over Copic coloring of all the images, as well as some other techniques we are going to use. Then there will be dedicated time to assembling the 3 cards. As in Jenn’s in-person classes, this is when she will share tips, tricks, and processes with you.
All of the class videos are available to watch in the private Facebook group.
Also included in the class is a downloadable class handout that will include:
- card kit prep information
- images of all the cards, including detailed shots
- supplies listed per card as well as assembly information
- Copic coloring guides (If you do not have Copic markers you can choose to color with a different medium and you will still find the coloring guides helpful)
- 2 bonus card designs
Some feedback from previous class attendees:
Jenn is an awesome teacher who breaks down cardmaking for the newbie while still challenging the more seasoned papercrafter. Her classes always include some nuggets of info that many of us have not thought of. Most of all it’s fun and encouraging!- Christine, from RI
Jenn is a great instructor full of energy, creativity and inspiration. She will help you to get your own creative juices flowing. Being able to attend class from anywhere was an added bonus. Jessica, AZ
This was my first class from Jenn, and what a party! Because I live in the Netherlands, it is very difficult for me to follow a personal class, and this was the perfect opportunity. Melanie, Netherlands

How this will work:
Once you have purchased this online class, and your order has processed you will want to join the private Facebook group and access the class resource page.
To find the class Facebook page and class resource page:
- goto https://shurkus.com/my-account
- log in to your account
- then under “my orders” find the order for the particular class, click that
- down towards the bottom, you will see “NEXT STEP”
- There is a link to the class Facebook group, and under that, you will find the link/password to the class resource page
- This is a different password than you used to log into your account.
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.
On the class resource page, you will find the 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.
With the supplies you have gathered ahead of time you will be able to watch the videos and to 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 group. If you happen to miss the live broadcast, or if you want to rewatch it, it will be permanently saved in the group video section. You will still be able to ask questions in the group or reach out to Jenn.
All important announcements and the replays of the videos will be kept in the “Announcements” section of the Facebook group, so they will be easy to find.
Q: What if I want to take the class with a friend, should we both register?
A: As many of us are starting to get together with friends again, to hang out and hopefully create together. I wanted to remind you that the policy for my online classes is that everyone who is taking the class should register for the class. It is not fair for a group of friends to get together under one registration. The class fee is very affordable and a lot of hours go into designing and hosting the classes, I hope you will understand and support me.
Q: How long will you have access to the class
A: Indefinitely (as long as Facebook is around)
Q: I don’t have Facebook. How can I join the class?
A: Because we are using Facebook’s platform to host the class, you must have a Facebook account to join.
Q: I plan on taking the class with a friend, do we both need to sign up?
A: Just as if you were to take the class in-person, everyone that plans to attend the class, should sign up and pay for the class.
Q: I don’t have all the supplies listed.
A: You can always substitute for similar items, or leave something out. Email Jenn if you have questions
Q: Your class is at 11 am Eastern time, but I live in England. What time will your class air?
A: Go to World Clock and personalize the clocks at the top with New York time and your local time.
Q: I took one online live class. Will your next class go to the same group?
A: No, each class will have its own unique Facebook group. You must sign up for each class separately.
Q: Where do I find the video?
A: On the day of class, pull the group up on your phone, tablet, or computer. When class starts, you will see a post that Jenn is going Live in the group. Click on that to watch. After class is over, you can watch the video by clicking on the “Video” section of the group.
Q: What payment options do you offer?
A: All major credit cards and PayPal
Q: Can I have a refund for the class
A: Unfortunately, since you have already gained access to the class resource page, and were provided the website and password there are no refunds.
Q: I have technical problems!
A: Email Jenn and she will do her best to help. However, if she is in the middle of the LIVE she obviously will not be able to get back to you until after. Note that the classes will work well on your computer with a high-speed internet connection. They are not guaranteed to work on tablets, but we have tested them on our iPad and they worked well.
Q: In what language are the classes?
A: The classes are in English. There is no written transcript of the videos.
Q: When will the class handout be available?
A: All handouts are posted on the password-protected class resource page and available now

I had to purchase the class after a friend sent me the card. Jenn provides great detail for coloring with copics. I’ve taken a few other classes since and all were fabulous! You end up with 3 great cards & bonus cards.
April Davis (verified owner) –
This class was so much fun and the stamps coordinate so well with many other sets you may have. Jenn chooses wonderfully curated sets and gives you many options to showcase them. Her class is well paced and she always offers great resources to look back, making the most of your time. The price is well worth the resources and video alone but Jenn is quick to respond and is a big cheerleader in your creative process.
Daisy Mae (verified owner) –
Another amazing class with Jenn! These mice and bubbles are so adorable. Just learning the different ways to color the bubbles is worth the fee for class! All the rest is gravy. So many cute cards and techniques are gained in class. The work Jenn puts into the preparation for before class and the class handouts are priceless!!! I also love that we can go back and watch these for the life of FB.
Valerie Peterson (verified owner) –
Another fun, info-filled class! Love the LF mice, and these are such cute cards, I had to make extras!
Dena (verified owner) –
Such a fun class. Her Copic techniques were easy to understand and I love the color combinations Jenn used. I would highly recommend taking one of her classes.
Annette James (verified owner) –
This was my 2nd class with Jenn and I loved it. I’m new to copic coloring and her tips and tricks have helped me so much! This class was so much fun! We used an interactive die set that I did not have but I was able to create my own with my supplies. Jenn is always so good telling us to use what we have in our stash and encourages variations. Jenn’s teaching style is excellent, always makes sure everyone isn’t struggling, and pauses for others to catch up. I created the 3 cards in class, repeated the class with my 10 year old daughter the next weekend and we even created one of the bonus cards from her class handout. The handouts alone far exceed the class cost. I highly recommend her classes.
Laura McSweeney (verified owner) –
Another fun class with Jenn! You’ll learn lots of great techniques and the cards are simply adorable. Jenn will walk you through step by step: ink blending, copic coloring, scene building, Interactive cards, etc. The handouts are great resources and you always have access to the class videos to rewatch whenever. Thanks for another super fun class Jenn!

This was my first class with Jenn, other than during a Crop & Create event. I’m officially Jennabled! The kitting & class handouts were so detailed, and perfect for referring back to during class. I loved how the day was split into two halves – for colouring and building. Jenn is easy to listen to all day; I felt like I was in the craft room with her. Her directions were clear, and I am feeling so much more confident about my alcohol marker work. Loved every minute and cannot wait to take another workshop with her!
Charlene (verified owner) –
This was a great class with the perfect pace of instruction. Jenn is a great instructor who takes time to explain and answer questions as we go through this live. I imagine on replay the content will be just as great! I look forward to more content from Jenn!
Lora Wright (verified owner) –
It was my very first class. And all I can say is it was awesome!!! I loved everything about it. Jenn makes everything so easy. Can’t wait for the next one! I’m hooked!
BreAnn Loveland (verified owner) –
This class was so great! I struggle with scene cards and Jenn makes it so easy for me . Jenn is a great teacher. She is very thorough. Class is always fun. And I love that we have the fb group to ask questions and interact.
Linda Williams (verified owner) –
Saturday was my first class with Jenn, the Bubbles of Fun, class. It was fun. Jenn is easy to follow and she pauses to make sure everyone is ok. leave no crafter behind, LOL. It was a fun class. I didn’t feel rushed and if we had a question she would answer. I enjoyed the class very much.
Eliasbete (verified owner) –
I’ve taken several of Jenn’s classes and they are so much fun! Every class I learn something new. The projects are so cute that I always end up making multiples of all the cards. Jenn is a wonderful teacher!
sandy (verified owner) –
I have watched/followed Jen for a while now! However, this was my first class with her and it was really fun! Thank you so much for your instructions and kindness throughout the day! Really nice job!
Dolores (verified owner) –
I really had fun in this class! Jen’s way of teaching opens up many ideas of inspiration for me and gets me to using my stamps and dies. I tend to order more than I can play with, so taking her class got me to getting into my stamps and dies and actually using them and it was fun! I especially like the copic coloring she teaches and how to use low-tack tape to hold your cut-outs in place while you color! Cutting first and coloring second makes it a better way for me, because I can take my cut-outs and color them on the go– and I don’t have to cut them all out afterwards–it’s already done!
Deneen Cook (verified owner) –
This was my first card class with Jenn and I have to say it was beyond my expectations. I had a great time and would highly recommend this class to anyone. The class handouts were easy to understand and great to reference. Jenn’s teaching style was fun and entertaining as well as very helpful I took the live class but now know that even if I have a conflict with dates and times I will have access to the video at any time after the live class ends. I will definately be signing up for more classes as the price is also very reasonable.
Joan Mowers (verified owner) –
Another fun class with our favorite Jennabler!
These stamps and dies are cute, and I’m happy to have instructions for ways to color the images!

This class was so fun. Jenn is the best teacher. If you have any questions she will answer them or someone else will. Everyone has a good time.
I love being able to take classes like this because I can’t attend in person because of a hearing disability so this is perfect for me.
I loved this class. Jenn is a wonderful teacher and I love the detailed handouts she provides with her classes. I feel so much more comfortable using my stamps and dies after her classes. The best part is I finish the class with a bunch of completed cards! Having these virtual classes have been such a blessing since I probably never would have gotten to experience an in-person one with her! I can not wait to take more of her classes!
Suzanne Hebb (verified owner) –
Jenns classes are the best! This is the first one I did online and I loved it!! The pace was perfect, it was very enjoyable! So many tips and tricks along the way!! I honestly can’t wait for the next one!!
Andrea B. (verified owner) –
This is my third class in 3 months with Jenn. I’m hooked. The instruction and pace are wonderfully. Her guides, which are printable, are indispensable. It so easy to follow along. If you’re new to Copic coloring this class is super. If you’ve been coloring for a while , Jenn’s classes are full of inspiration and wonderful tips. She covers all the bases, is great at answering questions, and is FUN! Just watch out , she may “Jennable” you!
Janet Chappelle (verified owner) –
I love love love Jenn shurkus classes. The cards are so cute, you learn new techniques and jenn’s coloring techniques can make anyone a pro!
Meigan E (verified owner) –
Loved the class!! Great coloring tips and such cute cards! Prep took a while since I stamps and cut extra ones! Love doing the swish and pop. Decided to do for the first time with the class. So very cute
Maureen Thomas (verified owner) –
Any class she does is OUTSTANDING!!!! i am so grateful to have her as a teacher. She has awesome tips to share in ALL of her classes! She even taught me how to not be afraid to GLITTER!!!!! I actually glitter things without making a freaking mess and she can teach you to!!!
Lori Wolfe (verified owner) –
Jenn has the best classes! I’m in love with Bubbles Of Joy. She showed many different techniques to color the bubbles; all of them were beautiful. Like all of Jenn’s classes, she has an extensive handout detailing each step of the card making process. During the class, she went over the coloring and assembly of each card. Her instructions are clear and the pace great.
Bonnie Chesbrough (verified owner) –
So much fun!!!! The pace of Jenn’s classes is perfect. I would have never attempted the swish and pop on my own. Jenn made it so easy. All of the cards we made at beyond adorable. Still making cards days later. LOVE Jenn’s classes!!!
Karen Sutton (verified owner) –
I love the pace of Jenn’s classes and the attention to detail on the handouts!
Eric L Bowman (verified owner) –
I have taken every one of Jenn’s online classes. She is such an awesome teacher and I learn a lot. I can tell when I compare my current Copic coloring with my older coloring and I can see that I have progressed as a result of Jenn’s teaching. She is kind and patient with everyone and clearly has been teaching for a long time. I wish I could have a class with her every weekend!
Deanna (verified owner) –
The Bubbles of Fun class was my first class with Jenn and I loved it. The class had some great techniques and was very fun. Jenn made the assembly of the pop n swish card easy to understand. I am looking forward to the next class I can take from her!
Vikki Thomas –
Highly recommend Jenn’s classes. She provides very detailed instructions with pictures, she is very patient, and she always checks to make sure everyone is caught up. She checks for questions and answers them. She speaks very clearly and at a good pace. You feel relaxed and not hurried at all. She has great tips too!
Lana Lepinski (verified owner) –
This was my first class with Jenn after having a class at Crop & Create with her. She is phenomenal! Her handouts alone are worth the class fee. Then you get to spend time with her and stamp. She is full of tips and tricks and has a very laid back teaching style. I am planning on taking all of her classes! YIPPY!
Julie Menches (verified owner) –
This was such a fun class. I learned so much and all of my cards turned out like I was a pro. Jenn is an amazing teacher. I’m so thankful to be able to take Jenn’s online classes. I am not able to travel to locations so this is such a treat! I’ll be signing up for many more classes in the future as long as she continues to have them 🙂
Allison T (verified owner) –
Such a fun class! Handouts were clear and detailed. The class video was engaging and fun live and just as fun and helpful on the rewatch. Thanks for a great day!
Cathye (verified owner) –
I thoroughly enjoyed watching this on zoom. It allowed me to go at my pace , which is slow. I watched it all and then went back the next day to finish at my pace. Will definitely take more of Jen’s classes.
Maria Cristina Londono (verified owner) –
It was my first class ever, and it was the most amazing hours I could expend on a Saturday, times flew, I didn’t even feel tired, all i wanted was pay attention and follow her instructions, since I am new to the card making world, I was kind of nervous not being able to follow, but she always wait and ask for us to catch up, it was like she was there in the same room…..can’t wait to sign for another class and keep learning from one of the best.
Thank you for your time, for teaching us what you know and for your love doing this!!!!
