Online Resources: Creative Journey Art Retreat- June 2024

The Creative Journey Art Retreat is an event I have been hosting for a number of years. This event is very popular, sells out quickly, and I got many requests to have access to the video tutorials, and class handouts after the LIVE event.

When purchase these resources you will also get access to:

  • 10+ hours of instructional videos
  • details about 13 handmade cards.  The cards were designed with some products from many companies including
    • Colorado Craft Company
    • Creative Chick Co
    • Gina K Designs
    • Hero Arts
    • Honeybee Stamps
    • Lawn Fawn
    • Newton’s Nook
    • Pinkfresh Studio
    • Purple Onion Designs
    • Ranger
    • Simon Says Stamp
    • Stampers Anonymous
    • Stuff By Belle
    • Tim Holtz
  • 15+ page retreat handout which includes images of all the cards, including detail shots, and supplies listed per card
  • Copic coloring guides for the images we will be coloring with Copic markers (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)

Supplies Needed

Kits are not shipped for this. Within the class resource page, all supplies that are used will be listed and linked. There are a few basic supplies you will need.


  • Due to the nature of this event, there are no refunds. Once you register and pay you are given access to the private Facebook group and the retreat resource page. You are provided the website and password so there are no refunds. If you are unable to attend the event LIVE you will be able to watch the replays.
  • The event resource page and event videos are exclusive to event attendees it goes without saying this should not be shared with others. When the event sells out, crafty friends can still sign up for the event resources at a discounted rate and will then have access to these resources as well. I keep events and class fees affordable, I would hope you support me in not sharing this information. Thank you!

    This is my 3rd Creative Journey class and I love the content created by Jenn and the resources she creates! I found Jenn in 2021 when Paula mentioned she wanted to take the class and we have been FULL steam ahead ever since!! We really dove headfirst and have learned so much from taking Jenn’s online classes. Something I will say, I branched out and took another teachers class recently and I had to stop a minute and back into how this teacher was doing her class. I honestly said to myself, ‘self – you are lucky you started with Jenn when you took on this challenge of crafting because if you started THIS way you’d be so far behind the curve.’ The organization and detail Jenn puts into her classes make it really easy to read, follow along and enjoy yourself. I honestly feel like knowing ALL of the things up front through Jenn has really prepared me to be a better crafter!

    Another fantastic class with Jenn. Jenn is so personable and you can really tell she loves what she does. She is an excellent teacher and I highly recommend any of her classes.

    Tyou Ms. Jenn for such a fabulous virtual retreat event. Your instruction is easy to follow, not to mention educational for a cardmkg newbie like me. The projects forced me to learn beyond my comfort zone. Mixed media has not been my strength, but you made it less daunting to accomplish. Will be attending your in-person event in Cape Cod this Fall. You are a powerhouse to organize these events, despite your big move, renovations underway and movers arriving…whaaaat?!? You always go way beyond expectations. You think of everything, down to the last detail. Luv that your focus is on your customers and your heart to educate & share.

    This was my first virtual Creative Journey Art retreat, and it certainly will not be my last. I really enjoyed Jenn’s method of teaching, and how it all comes together with 13 completed cards. I have had my watercolor pencils for at least a year and was not quite sure how to use them. Jenn showed different techniques and now I have signed up for additional classes to learn more about watercolor techniques. The other thing is, if you do not have a particular type of ink or color for a card, she will show or explain how to use what you have. This retreat was worth every penny with all of the techniques and knowledge gained. It was fun, informative, and I have new stamps, stencils and other items to use to make more cards.

    This is my second Creative Journey Art Retreat. Jenn is a terrific instructor. She’s so much fun while she’s teaching and answers questions along the way. She always finds something new to teach us. Her designs are fabulous. I have taken several other classes from Jenn and will continue to do so as I find her and her teaching style great in every way. I am not an expert card maker and am always pleased with my results when taking her classes. I have even re-watched some of her classes to remember how certain techniques were done so I can incorporate them into my current projects. The great thing about the classes being available on YouTube is I can go back and make them again and again!

    I really enjoyed the June 2024 Virtual Creative Art Journey event! There were so many great techniques & even though this is my 5th Creative Art Journey event, I learn something new at each one. Jenn is an awesome instructor! I love her teaching style & her card designs are so creative & pretty! You definitely get your money’s worth when you take a course from Jenn. Her very detailed card instructions & coloring guides are so helpful! I have been taking classes from Jenn for at least the past three years. I highly recommend them to anyone who loves to make cards & to try out new & fun Cardmaking techniques!

    I attend this virtual retreat as a treat to myself at the end of a work year! It is full of creativity and juicy goodness. Who doesn’t love a carefully curated box of supplies that come with my very own awesome teacher? Jenn is enthusiastic, and unapologetically certain that everyone can learn new things. As a seasoned crafter, Jenn is still able to stretch my comfort zone by teaching me new skills and unique ways to use the included product. If I don’t have the exact product, she is sure to encourage out of the box thinking and reminds you to love what you have. While I am exhausted from all the crafting, I am also invigorated and left wanting more. My goal is to eventually check every one of her classes off as completed. Take a class. You won’t be disappointed.

    I do not know how Jenn does it! Somehow she packs in a bunch of creativity, techniques, excitement, inspiration, fun, and a whole bunch more into 2 days. I really enjoyed doing all the techniques with watercolor pencils and loved all the ways we used the stencils. I liked the addition of Distress paint and and look forward to adding those techniques into my cardmaking. The mixed media cards were so fun. I can honestly say that I do not have a favorite card this retreat–I love them all!! This is my 4th CJAR and I can’t wait for the next one!! Jenn always has new techniques to teach and I love being her student. This is a 5-star event that I highly recommend.

    I attended this virtual retreat this past weekend and it was AWESOME! Jenn is one of my favorite teachers and I learned several new techniques. I have attended a couple prior retreats and I have never been disappointed. I highly recommend taking a class or attending a retreat (in person or virtual), you will so happy you signed up. It also doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or experienced crafter, There is truly something for everyone! Thanks Jenn for a fantastic weekend.!
