Awesome Awesome. Living in Australia it is hard to do the show life but still awesome a couple of hours later. I loved all the cards. My favourite but was the Hydrangea. This was my first class and I loved Emma Lou's beautiful, happy and enthusiastic teaching method. Hope to enrol for many more classes. Regards Cathy

Wonderful class filled with lots of great tips using Heartfelt Creations products! I took this class to learn how to create mini albums to use for gifts . I loved the live demo showing how to use the border dies and placing the pages together. I didn't realize how easy it is to create a beautiful mini album. I loved the extra details to create an elegant gift card holder. Thank you, Emma Lou for sharing these wonderful techniques and inspiring ideas to share our craft creations.

Loved the class! Took for flower making tips but now love the project and now a must make. The tips for making stamens is worth the cost of the class. Love all the demos and every Heartfelt item I have purchased. Thank you for your hard work and helping make the world a better place.

This class was great. It is apparent that HC has been listening to our comments because Emma Lou took extra time to show the flower "building" process this time. Thank you for that. The finished project is stunning.

I loved this class. you were so through showing us how to cut, color and assembles these albums / cards. This is the best way to learn. Emma Lou, your Company is the first one that I have ordered from that really takes an interest in the costumers...

I did not get to see the class live and was so upset that I was going to miss the question and answers and comments that were going on. But Emma Lou did an amazing job interacting and reading those tips, question and answers that I felt like I was right there part of the class. Also, I am very thankful that the class included pencil coloring. I had just invested in an expensive set and Emma Lou has taken the intimidation out of using them with her wonderfully calming style and stunning techniques.

This was my very first class so I had no idea what to expect. I was at work so I had to watch on and off so very much looking forward to watching it at home with no interruptions. I loved, loved, loved the class. I learned so many helpful hints. I consider myself a beginner at flower making but this gave me the courage and confidence to go play with my dies and shaping molds and let the fun begin. Thank you for giving me the nudge. And the fact that I can watch it over and over again is wonderful.

Have been watching and admiring all your beautiful cards, forever! This is the first class that I attended, excited to make this beautiful card. It's going to be a challenge for me to turn out such a beautiful card. I decided to jump in and learn, would love to attend a class at a craft show. Anytime in Illinois or St. Louis area? Placing my order, hope they turn out spectacular. My friends will be amazed! You did a great job, good pacing, will be watching more in the near future. Thank you! J

Can't begin to even tell you how much I enjoyed this class. I'm going to use this umbrella on the tables at a baby shower and then draw names for a few of them to take them home. Please do another class with home decor. Love, Love, Love it!!! Thank You for sharing!!!

This was my second class and I just loved it! I learned so many ways to use the new tag items along with the beautiful Oakberry Lane flowers and paper collection. I missed the end of the presentation, but have already watched the recording to see the album finished. Coloring techniques were great as well. Another amazing class. Thanks Emma Lou & Heartfelt Creations!

If you're an old hand with flip fold albums you probably don't NEED this class. But you'll likely enjoy it nonetheless. The insta album is a great product and I'm off to order more because it's super fun. If you're not an old pro with the flip n folds then hold on tight. The insta album offers all the fun and less than half the hassle. Grab a couple paper pads, cut some paper and prepare to put together a stunning album.

Loved the class This was my first on line class with Emma Lou. I am on vacation and passed up a standing Thursday golf date with hubby and friends to attend the class live. I am really looking forward to giving the project a try. I watched rather than played along. I have several family members in nursing homes and my best friend is having major surgery Monday. What a great little gift to let them know they are being thought of that will last, unlike real flowers. i love that she doesn't rush.

I enjoyed this class so much. I feel so much more confident on making the pockets with the dies, also putting the flip album together. Emma Lou is a great teacher and so laid back, she makes it so much fun. She gives us so many great tips and your company brings out so many wonderful tools and teaches us how to use them. Can't wait to sign up for another class. Thank you!!

I love how you can go back and watch the class over and over. I just watched today and interacted with the others taking the class, what Fun! I am looking forward to making the cards.

This was a great online class. I particularly liked that Emma began with blank, uncolored paper and build the roses. Step-by-step visuals are always superior to pdf files in my view. Watching her actually color, then shape the flowers with the tools was just like having her at my side. As crafters, we really do have to come up with something better than hot glue. Cool glue that holds like hot glue maybe? Viewing the various samples made with rose components was great inspiration.

I absolutely loved loved this class. It is so amazing with what you can do with all the flowers from heartfelt. I can wait to get started on a necklace and matching earrings. The thing I love the most about this video is the step by step it was not to fast you could easily fallow along. .I like that you can go back as many time and watch it after you purchased it. I absolutely love that you can design jewelry to match what were your wearing rather the color or the type flower. Thanks Heartfelt, Jeannie

Hi guys, I found this class interesting and engaging. This is my 2nd class with your company. First was an 8x8 insta album with Emma Lue. Both classes and presenters have been very nice. Love all the beautiful creations. Never made 3-D flowers like that before. Love how they turned out and it does not seem to be very difficult to make. It always looks easy in the hands of the masters! Great tips & tricks. Lovely & supportive online community in the class. Thank you for the great class Andrea & Tracy.

The Elegant and Versatile Ways to use Border Dies class was terrific! I didn't realize how many mix and match possibilities these dies offer! I appreciate the instructions on using these dies to create my own cards and not limiting myself to the foldout cards. I'll be watching this video repeatedly!

This was my 1st class with Heartfelt and there aren't enough words in my vacabulary to describe how wonderful it was. Emma is an absolutely fantastic instructor. One thing I have to compliment her on is her organization. Others should take lessons from her in producing videos. Fortunately I have had most of the dies & the paper collection for some time, so I was so appreciative of this lesson. BEAUTIFUL TAGS, BOX & THE LANTERN SHAPE MADE ! I have that die also. and can't wait to get started.

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 a perfect class to learn more on shaping beautiful vellum flowers. Andrea did a wonderful job at giving step by step directions. I especially appreciated the multiple times showing us how to shape the flowers. Heartfelt Creations always makes it look so easy to create beautiful altered art with their products.

This was my first "live" online class, and it was worth every penny! WOW! What an amazing and fun experience! Emma Lou, your "stage presence" is so delightful! Cindy, thank you so much for working behind the scenes, to manage the chat log. I've learned so much from this class. I am thrilled to now understand how to construct the actual album. I love the PDF "homework" (as Emma Lou called it) - that is very helpful. More pictures of the the final individual pages would be great and much appreciated!

I have been making flowers for awhile. In the class I discovered that I need to make things simpler. It really only take a small amount of pressure and no need to crush them up so much. Your flowers are flatter and my are have more pointed at the bottom. The simple techniques to make beautiful flowers. I didn’t know how to do the Stamens. I will be doing more of them. Thanks for getting me to the next level.
