OWNER / CONTENT CREATOR
Jennifer has spent over 30 years in the customer service industry, taking just a few years off to have her two children, Emma (22) and Alex (17) … In 2006, Jennifer began building her own retail store, and is so happy to now have this incredibly rewarding platform to share all her creativity with you !
It began in a little house in Parksville, BC and was called Scrapbookin’ Adventures. That small shop had a wonderful journey over the 8 years as a storefront. Hundreds of workshops, thousands of pieces of paper and more laughs than you can count, made Scrapbookin’ Adventures a very special part of Jennifer’s life.
Always putting her family first, Jennifer and her family moved to Calgary in 2014 and made the difficult decision to close the doors to Scrapbookin’ Adventures. She kept her business name and moved forward with a few favourite parts of her little company. During her families’ (4) years in Alberta, Jennifer continued to learn, teach and grow with her own creativity.
Now, living back on Vancouver Island since 2018, Jennifer is excited to share her ever evolving brand with you all. Jennifer Edwardson Creative offers so many places for you to enjoy.

Treena and Jennifer also met through the doors of Scrapbookin’ Adventures in the early days and have stayed connected through the years, both creatively and through a shared love of horses !!
Originally a prairie girl, Treena was born and raised in Saskatchewan and started moving west after training in Architectural Design. Her education carried on in Alberta with a degree in Graphic Design.
Continuing to move toward the ocean, she then married the love of her life on Vancouver Island. Treena’s path was greatly impacted after living for two years in Haida Gwaii, and later returned to back to Vancouver Island to pursue Professional Photography, where she ran a successful studio and taught photography for 20 years. With an eclectic background and love of learning, Treena went on to become Real Estate Agent, and now works predominantly in the Oceanside area.
Happily settled in Nanoose Bay, BC for many years, Treena has two grown children, a house (and yard) full of animals. Dear friends, a love of photography, riding, crafting and watercolor painting are just a few of her passions that keep her busy, and her days full !!
You can find Treena’s presence within Jennifer Edwardson Creative through her sketches, beautifully digitized from Jennifer’s pencil to paper ‘drawings’, as well as many of the professional photos throughout the website and social media !
Deanyne and Jennifer’s journey together began back in 2006, with Deanyne being one of the first customers at Scrapbookin’ Adventures. She is incredibly creative, and it wasn’t long before she started working part time at the store … as her babies started to come along, she stepped back to raise her 3 beautiful girls, but she stayed on behind the scenes, and has been working alongside Jennifer ever since.
Deanyne is a fabulous designer and instructor as well … and for those of you that have attended our UYOP Workshops in person on Vancouver Island over the years, you will have enjoyed her layouts and design both in class and in Creative Kits over the years too !! She has held many roles within Jennifer Edwardson Creative Inc., and for the last several years, has been Jennifer’s go to girl for anything technical behind the scenes with the website and online shop !!
She has been working hard on continuing her education, obtaining a BAA as an Accounting Major and is currently working to complete her CPA ! While attending school, Deanyne works within the hotel industry in accounting as well … maybe there is a financial position with Jennifer Edwardson Creative in her future !!
