Andrea has done a great job on this class, all the little special details gives us the information to create a beautiful gift for a special person in our lives. First of all the extra detail on the background sheet just made it pop out, she had really put a lot of work into making this class run smoothly as there were so many detailed areas. Again a very informative & entertaining class.

Thank you for another wonderful learning experience. I watched the class on my big TV and relaxed as I learned wonderful new things. I would have never thought of the layout and design. Seeing it demonstrated was such a help. Emma Lou explained every step and I now feel that I can make the same project. Thanks for all the wonderful tips, I can't wait to get started. I have fallen in love with Heartfelt Creations Company. Everyone is so nice. Thanks.

Thank you so much Andrea for your class this morning. Knowing how to create elegant vellum flowers, how to use the embossing powder so it doesn't flake and also tricks to stop the vellum cracking was priceless. Colouring the vellum on top was a new technique I learnt and seeing how you place the flowers to obtain the right balance was awesome. Loved this class and I highly recommend Heartfelt Creations classes to everyone.

I loved this class. I learned new ways in shaping the flowers and using the golf tools in a different way. I loved the color combinations that were used cause it helped me to combine colors that I wouldn’t have though would go together. Thanks Emma Lou for a wonderful class.

This class was so informative! I purchased these dies in the Black Friday sale and to be honest I was a little confused as to how to use them exactly. Now I am so excited to start creating some amazing cards and projects. Clean and simple cards most definitely have a place, but I love that Heartfelt Creations provides products that help the "romantic me" create beautiful cards and projects worthy of "this is a keeper" Thank you, not only for wonderful products, but also for offering these wonderful classes to teach us how to get the most out of our investment. Emma Lou, thanks for all the great tips and instructions. Outstanding class!

Another great class from Heartfelt Creations. I learned step by step how to put together a beautiful double mini album, and learned some beautiful ways to create vellum flowers and a gorgeous vellum butterfly. What I really love is the fact that I can go back to view the class any time I want and as many times as I want. It's like having Emma Lou right here in my craft room with me!

What a great class! With this basic album knowledge, you can really change up the papers and embellishments for any occasion or just because. Looking forward to the Jan class and I have already purchased my album and dies. Love projects that aren't just a one time use because it is so unique. Thanks and Happy Holidays!

I really enjoyed myself, but more than that I enjoyed doing a Flipfold Album. You were concise, patient, and helpful. You showed your true crafting heart when an oops happened. You single handily converted me into an "I wanna make more albums" person. Unless I get sick or otherwise detained I am planning to attend more of your online classes. I have already signed up for July and am measuring away on inserts I have so I can start on finishing up on at least one album this weekend. Thanks so Much!!!!

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!

Thought class was excellent. Took the Rose making class at Mega Meet in Novi, but it was first class, and I was newbie. I liked the color selection for rose, learning how many petals to use for flowers, how to use the stylist to shape the flower. Several tips: bud - stamping on outside, smaller stylist tip gives more wrinkled petals, how smart to color backs of petals, using sponge to apply glue for glittering.. Entire class was so helpful. I have already watched it three times !!!! THANK YOU

Emma Lou does an excellent job of explaining how to make this beautiful Insta-Album. The class is organized, well thought out, and very informative. Every detail is explained in a manner that enables even the most novice crafters to understand the steps of how to make this album from beginning to end. It showed me that, once all the papers and dies are cut, it can be assembled in a couple of hours. How great is that! I am very inspired! Love the fact that I can watch this over and over. Thanks HC : )

I loved this class, it was not as difficult as I thought it would be, just time consuming. What a lovely decorative piece for my home and a fantastic gift. I also want to do one with the wedding paper for a bridal shower. Thank you so much for taking the tine to teach us new ways to use our dies and paper. I am one of those people that needs to see to do. I love your videos, such a help. The next class looks beautiful, can't wait and I would love to do more decorative pieces,

I am brand new to this type of paper-crafting. I just bought my first die cutter, but was only using it for felt crafts. Then, I stumbled onto Heartfelt Creations and my whole world has opened up! The online classes are a great value for me since I know NOTHING!! ;) Emma Lou is a fabulous teacher and the projects have taught me so much and given me a great jumping off point for future crafting. Much love and many blessings- Mendy

Hi Emma Lou. Enjoyed your 8x8 insta album class very much. I like to use a lot of photos and this album has many pretty and interactive spaces to put them in. Love those intricate dies and how they bring such a delicate and enchanting look to the finished project. Thank you to the lovely online support lady for all the help. It was great to be amongst helpful and supportive online community of crafters. Thank you all kindly.

I LOVED the class ! I wanted to learn how to do different sizes of roses and now I know. The tips on how to curl the leaves, mixing colors, and using crystal lacquer were very helpful. Best part is I can go back and re-watch the video any time I want to. Great job teaching us how to make these lovely roses!

I'm loving the online classes that Emma Lou is doing. It's so nice to watch the first time and then have the opportunity to review the class again as I make the project. I love the feedback from other crafters too. It's also so nice that we get a coupon and a free die. It's just a win-win situation for their customers. You're a great company and everyone is so pleasant to talk with. Thank You HFC, you're the BEST!

Always informative and goes at a pace you can follow or you have the option to stop or rewind if needed. Emma Lou is the best and I hope to meet her at one of the California shows sometime. Thank you for offering extra incentives after purchasing a class!

I greatly enjoyed the class. I hope that you keep doing online classes because in person classes are not an options for some people. I had bought some of the flip fold inserts and an album in Atlanta last month and this class helps make the process so less intimidating. It helps you get started and then you branch out from there. The technical difficulties are a part of life. I like to be able to download the class for when I am without internet connection. Please do more online classes.

I recommend, even if you are experienced, to take a few classes They really are worth it and chatting with Emma Lou and others is FUN. Plus I am sure you'll still get a few new tips or ah ha's. It was a relaxing time spent with (virtual) friends.

I learned a lot more about how many sizes to put together to make a more beautiful flower. The best part of the class was learning about the buds I was having a hard time with them now I think I can do it much better. People love my flowers now but I can't wait to wow them even more.

Loved this class today. I am making 4 of this size album to give to friends that are joining me on a cruise to the Panama Canal in late October this year. Unfortunately I will not be using all Heartfelt papers - but you will see some of the Under the sea collection popping up. Loved how you extended the dies and the pockets - something that I have not seen done before and that way my ah ha moment today. The dies that Heartfelt has designed are perfect for albums and can be adapted any where.

— Madeleine Barnett
Wow! That was amazing. I have the album and now I feel confident enough to unwrap it! :) Just have to decide on the paper. Next class will be fun as well and we can use some of those techniques on other albums. Thanks so much for your live on-line classes. tina
