Sunday April 15, 2018 • 9a-4p
Hyannis, MA (day 2)

Come for one day, or make a weekend of it and attend both days! Different cards each day.

Note: The cardmaking retreats have been so popular I am offering TWO full days this spring! You can come both days and create different cards EACH day! We will create a variety of cards including thank you, birthday, encouragement, Christmas etc. Cards pictured are from past events to give you an idea of what you will make, but you will be creating all new designs with new product from our sponsors.

Envision walking into a spacious, bright, inspiring creative space – this is where you will start your creative journey. During this retreat, you will create a stash of unique cards. You will have an amazing time! Whether you are a card maker, a paper-crafter, a scrapbooker or all of the above this retreat is for you! This retreat is open to everyone and all skill levels. At this all day retreat located on Cape Cod not only will you create over 12 cards, you will learn different techniques and get to play with supplies you might not have had a chance to. Jenn will guide you and instruct you through the many different card designs, and you will also get a chance to work as a team with your table mates.

Art retreats are the best! Jenn is awesome. She is so full of creative energy and fun! I have gone to them by myself, not knowing anyone and everyone is always friendly and fun! It takes your mind off duty for the day! Kim CT

Art Retreats are like mini craft vacations! I love everything about them. Most especially Jenn is amazingly talented, kind & a wonderful teacher. The projects are always amazing and I learn something new each time. Having the little “store” of items we can purchase is great. Michelle MA
