Snowball Fight is a frosty fun class! 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. We will also be doing some inky techniques. 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!

This class was so much fun! Jenn’s classes are AWESOME! Everything in Jenn’s on-line classes is organized down to the last detail. The handouts are exceptional. When we’re online together in the class we have so much fun and the cards are GORGEOUS! Not only that, Jenn goes through the colouring of each item in the class, so if you are a newbie at copic colouring, you will have no problem following along. We learn great tips along the way and have some laughter too. Then with every class there’s bonus cards at the end. Can’t wait for the next in-person class!!!

Jenn is a fabulous instructor! I have become more confident in my coloring and card making skills! The online classes are all amazing. I have taken many classes and always learn something new. I love the online classes, Jenn is all about use what you have on hand. You don’t need to buy anything. I have seen so many wonderful, creative cards come out of this concept! I also love the fact that I can go be in the virtual class and if I need to leave and watch the replay to continue working on my cards. The replay gives me time to color all the critters, glitter all the things, ink blend a background or glitter all the things! Yes! Glitter all the things, Jenn gives great tips on how to not get glitter all over. I do love to glitter all the things! The prep instructions are very detailed. Getting you ready for class and before you know it your card is made! So take Jenns’ classes they are fabulous and you finish class with so many cards and creative ideas for other cards you can make on your own! So join us in class and GET INKY!

I was thrilled when I learned that Jenn was offering a class for the Snowball Fight set. In addition to the three cards we make in class, Jenn includes design ideas for Bonus cards in the Class Handout. I’ve learned to do the prep work for both the class and bonus cards. After class was over, it just took me a little more time and I had six adorable winter cards completed (some of which were included in the stack of Christmas cards I mailed out this year.) I have said since the first class I took with Jenn that the stepped out coloring guides she provides are worth the price of the class. I have used these outside of the class projects when I need to refresh myself on a good color combo, how to color a particular critter, etc.
I started taking Jenn’s classes Jenn’s classes because I love Lawn Fawn images. I will continue to take her classes because 1) they are great fun, 2) the projects are adorable 3) I have seen my card making skills improve in so many areas (Copic coloring, wet techniques, ink blending, etc.) and 4) they are a great value! My routine for new Lawn Fawn releases now is see what classes Jenn will be offering and place my purchases accordingly!

Can we talk about this class that I just took! Let me preface this with my five-star rating. The class was amazing. The instruction awesome from coloring instruction to background creation. Let me recount the issues during and post-class. It started late in the first session with lots of family drama that took me away from class. Session two was interrupted by double the family drama. The pure BEAUTY and CONVENIENCE of these virtual, online classes. Jenn was right there for me when I was ready to catch up later . . . she’s so accommodating in rewind. It’s like I never left the class. And so the next day, I caught up and made the class cards and all three bonus cards. Eight days later we have a problem. My 34-year old daughter stopped by, saw my cards, and stole them! I guess I could have protested, but she loves mice and was gushing over them. The beauty . . . I can take class again, and again, and again! Thanks, Jenn for an AMAZING class experience.
