Read what customers thought of their online class experience!
This was my first online class and I just loved it.Seeing first hand how flowers and cards are created gives little tips that may not normally be picked up in instructions!! I LOVED the hydranga card with the bird cage but also seeing how to use the wired stamens was huge for me!! Thanks so much for offering these classes and I will be doing more for sure.

I loved this class. Hydrangea is one of my favorite flowers so the technique to make them was my favorite. I also enjoyed the coloring and assembly tips. It is so much better to take an online class than to just read the instructions. I got so much more out of it. Things I would have not thought of. The comments from others in class was rewarding too. This was my first on line class, I've taken many at shows and am looking forward to taking more in both settings.

I love all the flowers, but my favorite is the blue one.

Eight ways to make peonies truly is an understatement! I think there are an endless amount of ways these flowers could be made with enough imagination and creativity. This is inspiring and motivating. Emma Lou gives good advice throughout the entire class. Her advice to stamp out the flowers one night and cut them another...then color them another is excellent. To come to class prepared takes a little time but enables you to complete the class as she does it.

I had a wonderful time watching this class and chatting with the other people taking the class. Between the .pdf and the class I learned it is not such a daunting task to decorate many heartfelt albums for my photos, recipies, keepsakes, etc. The class gave me the confidence I needed to comfortably decorate my albums using all the Heartfelt Creations products (including glitter!). I just can't think of anything more that can be improved upon. It's all fun, creative and inspirational!

I love Heartfelt's online classes, and this class was no exception! Emma Lou shared some really creative ideas for coloring and shaping the petunias, and it was great to be able to see how to actually fill a pot with flowers and make a beautiful bouquet. I feel like I can take what I've learned and build most any kind of bouquet I want using other Heartfelt Creations flowers and dies. I think I will try a poinsettia bouquet soon. Thanks again for a great class!

Emma Lou, this was my favorite class. So many ideas but some of your tips really helped. The visual of the "hands" showing the flower shaping was so helpful. Also making small cuts in the flowers ....my flowers looked so great. I did my homework and made the first three flowers. I am going to have my daughter explain how to send you photos because I have done some really pretty cards because of you and your help. I love your team, they are so helpful. Thank you Colleen

I have had these inserts for months on my shelf. every now and then I would take them out only to put them back in again. they overwhelmed me completely. Emma Lou did an excellent job showing us how to manipulate them into our albums. such beautiful products you make. love everything I have bought looking forward to your future classes

I was very impressed with Andrea. This is the first time I have attended one of her classes. Excellent skills to describe what she is doing and tools or techniques used in the process. She comes across as very nice and personable. Loved this class. I’ve been struggling with vellum. I’m anxious to get into my craft room and try out these techniques! I am a huge fan of these sessions! There is real value in being able to replay these classes when I’m working on projects.

Wonderful class creating lilac and hydrangea blossoms which reminded me of the circle technique used on your blog 1/16/15 by designer Archana Joshi with Birds and Blooms Collection. Lots of great tips from Emma Lou in particular the stamens pushed through holes poked into the lilac spray which gave incredible dimension to the bouquet. I always learn new tricks and get inspired with all the ideas for projects to create!

I am so thrilled to say that I learned so much from the borders class, I learned to pair and put together for different projects and ideas. It was really an awesome experience for me, for this is my me time and relaxing moment and Emma Lou makes it so easy to understand and if you don't get it right away she's there to explain it and show you exactly how to make it work. Customer Service is a definite plus and not to mention the platinum savings that I get on everything. I look forward to the next class!

I enjoyed this like I have all the others I have taken, was happy to learn more about coloring.I am so thankful that your classes are recorded because about 1hour into the class my internet died for a few minutes so I went back and didn't loose any of the class....was glad to learn about glittering with sticky paper, stacking die cuts for thicker pieces and all your wonderful tips that are so helpful...... You are a great teacher, thank you.

This was my second class with Andrea and I truly enjoyed her classes. I am very excited to rewatch this class and make this photo frame. Andrea is an excellent teacher. She explains each step clearly and concisely. I was super excited to learn different ways to using decorative dies I already have in my stash. I also enjoyed learning how to make beautiful roses with the tulip stamp and dies. Thank you HFC for offering classes and teaching new ways to use our stamps and dies.

This was the best class ever! I learned so much. Now I can make an album from scratch. The strengthening techniques for lace trims and coloring. I was mesmerized the whole time. Always so enjoyable to connect with Emma Lou and the "friends" from all over the world.

This was my second time purchasing an online class. I am so impressed with the way Emma Lou presents the projects. She divided each part of the project into smaller projects. She made each part easy to follow. I learned techniques and Ideas to create my own unique product . I love that you can interact and ask questions. Emma Lou gets me motivated. I can’t wait to make my own. I love the samples. I am really get motivated to start my own projects.

Favorite flower is the largest carnation! Layering flowers in the mold and how to use the threaded stamens very helpful and useful tips. Always love the color combining. I have too too many colors to choose from - love letting someone else do the thinking for me lol

I have had lots of experience in jewelry making in my past. With that on my mind, I was not sure if I wanted to spend the extra money for this class. I decided to bit the bullet and purchase it. I was very happy I did, because it went into a lot of details how to prepare the paper flowers for wearing. Plus, I really enjoyed the interchangeable feature of the magnetics. Thank you Heartfelt, for continuing my every purchase, to be a great value to my business.

Another excellent online class led by Emma Lou and team. Action packed and fast paced full of amazing tips and tricks from beginner to experienced crafter. I had already created a Christmas themed insta-album as soon as I received my Black Friday packet. The hardest part is choosing which paper to use on each page - so these are completed very quickly. To help with magnet placement you can add + or - on each red circle. So wonderful to have all the paper measurements noted. And all the pocket dies ...

You earned a 5-heart rating from me today! This was my first online crafts class; it won't be the last I take from HC ! Kudos to Emma Lou--you are a star! Despite minor technical difficulties, loved how you kept the class moving along. I enjoyed the comparison of the original book to the new one underway, and the page-by-page review of embellies at the end was excellent as a wrap-up and final review of how the finished pages look. Thanks for the experience, and can't wait for my order to arrive!

Wonderful class which highlighted many ways to use various dies. Emma Lou makes it all seem so easy & having all the prep work done ahead of time is the best suggestion of all. When trying to do a project at one setting it can get overwhelming to think of all that has to be done. The prep packages will make the project go so much faster. No matter what your crafting level, every class has something new to learn. Heartfelt Creations is my go to crafting store. Thank you.

Dear Emma Lou, Thank you so much for the most wonderful class yesterday. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Your explanations were thorough, easy to follow directions made me believe that I could do it too! The time went so fast and you were so gracious when there were some technical problems. I am still smiling. I can't wait to take another and roses are my very favorite flower. This was the best experience. Regards, Deborah

Thank you so much, it’s nice to sit at home and be able to take a class!! I don’t live close to the craf5 shows and I care for my parents. This was very informative and Andrea did a wonderful job presenting it. The flowers were just fabulous and the necklaces were stunning!!! I will be giving this a try!! Love I can go back and review the video and follow along at my pace!! Thank you again for your Great crafting skills!!!

I feel like I'm "part of the family" when I watch your live videos. You show that things "can" and "do" go wrong, but the way you handled the lost feed situation was just wonderful. Emma Lou, as usual, was herself but better. She showed all of us how to handle grace under pressure. She persevered (with a little help from her friends) when her cutting device went down, never faltering in her instruction. She proved that when you are nice to others they will be nice to you. I learned a lot!

The Elegant Paper Roses class was fantastic. Emma Lou is a natural born teacher. She is specific in describing each step in the process for creating such absolutely beautiful flowers. I like using the 3 petals for the base. It's prettier than the 2/2/2 petal style in the 2015 Vintage Floret YouTube. Glad I signed up for the class to learn how to make even better roses. Thanks so much to the HC Team for making these classes available.

Thank you, again, for a great on-line class. I learned so much from it. I have had the albums and packets of inserts sitting in my craft room ever since they came out, and have not successfully put one together. I did try, once, and became overwhelmed. I was confident I could make one, but hadn't done so. I think the magnets were the most confusing part for me. After watching your class, I am sure I can manage one now. You are a great teacher. Your instructions were clear and concise, and you sh
