I hesitated about signing up for this class. I had already been using the lilac stamps and dies and been pleased with my results. But this class showed me so many extra tips that I never would have thought of. EmmaLou goes at such a nice pace. And she does not talk too fast for us to follow or understand. I loved learning how to make the card base as well as all the flowers. Excellent class!!!! And I love that it is now in my "library" so I can go back and rewatch it.

Andrea, you always make learning fun! Your class is great for all levels of crafters! I love how you stay as calm as can be with an oops and show us how to make a quick fix. The technique for centering on the backside of paper is a great idea! Honestly, great job! I am happy for re-play though to go back to work at my own space! Thanks again to you and Uma for a lovely project!

This was a great class. Emma Lou showed us a great way to put the wisteria flowers together. I always loved the flowers but was intimidated by the intricacies. Not anymore!! Also, always appreciate the extra tips and techniques she gives us. Another great class, thank you so much Emma Lou and Heartfelt Creations!

I was wondering how you cut the ovals for the pages...Now I know and can use this for both oval and circles thank you very much. I also enjoyed you using the pencils on coloring because you gave me more on idea with the inks and pencils (prismacolor pencils I use a lot) never thought about mixing with my inks good idea. I love Heartfelt and use the stamps and dies for albums and cards. Thank you Bonnie

So glad I registered for this class. As a beginner I learnt a great deal and it was very inspiring. My confidence to proceed with the insta album has increased immensely. Clear instructions, very helpful especially with the tips, the magnet placements and added tips on how to recover from any errors made along the way. Thank you so much! Blessings, Linda

Heartfelt Creations classes are simply icing on the cake with glitter - I mean sprinkles! I learn pointers that are “in the box” that I hadn’t thought of and pointers that are “out of the box” that stretch my imagination! That’s why I’m learning to sign up for the classes even if I already have ideas - cuz I don’t know the half of it! ????. I highly recommend signing up for classes early so that you get the $15 store credit!

Loved the class. I haven't been doing much in the way of baskets or boxes and this was inspiring. The roses were especially good. Haven't made them in a while but am encouraged to do them again. Thanks again for your enthusiasm and tips for making our creativity better!!

This was a great class. I learned a lot and it went so quickly considering all the pieces that were used. The tips are going to be so helpful. Like all the other Heartfelt classes, I really feel like I got way more out of it than what the cost was for the class. Another great job! Keep up the good work!

I LOVE Heartfelt Creation classes. I only wish I started watching them when you began. I always pick up tips for making each project that I didn't know. I love being able to ask questions. The classes are a great way to learn how to do new projects. Some of us can't not attend classes. These make it easy to watch. I love re watching. You get a $15.00 discount and during the class you are give another coupon for something in the store. I get so inspired to create beautiful projects.

The Rose Making Class was OUTSTANDING! Speaking as a handicapped person, working with one hand, I was totally surprised to be able to make roses (almost) as beautiful as Emma Lou's. I know with more practice...and patience, I'll get there. I thoroughly enjoyed myself, especially seeing all the different colors of roses that were opened up to us. The garden is our playground.....and I'm ready to play! Thanks Emma Lou and Heartfelt for another GREAT Class!

This class was fantastic. Being a fan of making 3-D projects, this was just perfect. (Then again, being a HUGE fan of Heartfelt Creations is just perfect also!). Emma Lou did a FANTASTIC job going step by step and helping make it so easy to make this project. I also would like to thank the design team member that developed this project. It really is a great project for home decor! Stay warm down there! Debbie

I signed up for this class to watch live, but unfortunately I had to work when I thought I would have the day off - so sad! Anyway I just finished watching the class a day late and enjoyed every moment! Thank you Andrea for a lovely class! I make many more 12x12 scrapbook pages than cards, so I was especially happy to see you working with larger papers on a 12x12 layout. The vellum Peony flowers are beyond beautiful and I really enjoyed actually watch you make each flower from beginning to completion!

Thank you so much for the beginner flip fold album class. I have made one album but wasn't sure what I was doing. After watching both workshops, it has given me the confidence to jump in and see what I can create in another one. Thank you!!!

I didn't know you can use two different steamens and your flowers are beautiful thank you for sharing.

Loved this class today. I learned that there is a newer vellum paper that is best for creating flowers with and because it is a thicker paper, when it is embossed, the embossing does not crack. Also with this thicker velum you can colour it on the front side and get brighter flowers. I love vellum flowers - have made daisies this way in the past. The mini album will be fun to make and I will definitely make for a cruise I am taking next year. Maybe will have a few extra to be given away in goodie

I learned so much! I needed help with the coloring techniques and how to do the stamens. I tend not to make flowers cause I am so bad at it. You make it look so easy. I need to practice, practice, practice. Thanks so much for all your help.

I really enjoyed this class it took away the mystery on how to use these inserts. I had bought them a few months ago but was intimidated on how to use them. The class was very relaxed and Emma Lou made it look so easy to accomplish a stunning album I am sure I will be signing up for the next class. I like the fact that you can come back and watch it again at your leisure and not feel that you have to accomplish 3 albums in just 2 hours. It honestly didn't feel like 2 hours. Thanks again for a lovely class.

This is the first class I have taken, I loved this class and the fact that I can watch it over and over. The tips on color combos and how to make roses and the flower buds was very succinct. I could not believe how fast the two hours went. Thank you for the tips and I feel much better about making flowers! I will be taking another class in October.

As Usual I enjoyed the class, I was especially interested in the Mousse application, now can use the colors I have with more confidence, also the texture medium was very interesting. Emma Lou always explains things very well & with watching the video I can pick up some I may have missed. Also the vellum techniques were good to watch, as I like to use vellum for quite a few flowers, esp dogwood blossoms. Another great class.

I found this class to be fantastic. The information on vellum flowers and especially the butterfly was simply superb It was wonderful to see the album gradually come together with the vellum flowers being the cherry on top! I totally enjoyed myself. I am just finding out about Oxides so seeing them in use was particularly useful to me. Now I will have fun putting all the pieces I have been cutting out and die cutting to good use. I am looking forward to getting my vellum so I can make these fabulous items.

Another Great class from Emma Lou and the HC team. I learn so much at these classes, and get so many wonderful tips and shortcuts to making the beautiful flowers. The fact that it is live is great too. Not only do I learn from Emma Lou, but I also get ideas from all the other people watching the class too. The classes from Heartfelt Creations are sooo worth the money, and really don't cost a thing with all the extras you get. I am so hooked. I can't wait for the next one.
