This was my first online class and I LOVED IT!!! I ALWAYS take Heartfelt Creations classes as the Expos also. Heartfelt Creations is my favorite paper company!

I learned so much from this class. I have been making scrapbooks for many years. I wasn't sure this class would help me. I was wrong!! I learned many useful techniques that will come in handy with many of my future activities. I was so impressed that I have signed up for the next class. It is nice that I can replay the class whenever I want to. I was happy to see others materials can be used to make these projects. I can't wait to try out the techniques I learned. I loved seeing all the samples.

Another wonderful class. Thanks for tips about creasing the flowers to get a more ruffled look.

Great class. Always like learning new techniques and ways to improve my crafting skills. Ways to strengthen border trims was helpful. Using 4 layers of paper to strengthen the album cover was informative, however, I think I prefer using chipboard as it is stronger and I learned a way to make the entire album cover using chipboard and paper from Katie at Katie's World. It would be helpful if you e-mail the PDF for the class sooner so students would have time to prepare for the class.

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!

Such a great class! Emma Lou and the Heartfelt Creations team always have a way of making a daunting project turn into a relaxing, fun, easy class. The instructions are clear and precise., but still allow for your own artistic input. The classes are always presented with a great sense of camaraderie. I always look forward to each one with great anticipation and am never disappointed. From beginner to professional, you will be able to accomplish your goal in each class and learn something new.

Awesome class as usual. Andrea, you are an excellent instructor. Thank you Benjamin for the great camera work and the hot glue rescue. And thank you Tracy for the great support. I learned a lot and took notes from several of the comments. Thank you to the whole HFC team!! Can't wait for next month's class. God bless and take care.

The presenter did an excellent job explaining the project and showing how to use vellum. I liked that she moved the class along and did not waste time. However, I feel for the money, it was lacking in ideas and creativity. This could have been shortened and added in the free class section or had another 2 projects. I regularly attend these classes and want to learn how to use your products and this class was not anything new. I love HC and want to get my money’s worth from products.

Thank you so much! This class was amazing! I can't wait to make my foam flowers! I also am going to make the mini album and the card holder! Thanks again Emma Lou and Tracy! Can't wait until the next class! Merry Christmas to all of you! <3

Loved the class Emma Lou, just wondering though can you follow the cutting instructions for the pdf on another paper, I would like to use the Classic Rose Collection Thank you Faye

— Faye McLellan
I really loved this class. I did think it was a little too fast paced, but there was definitely a lot to get through. I would suggest that the next time you suggest inking the cut pages in your cut directions. I might have been better able to keep up if I had done that ahead of time. Probably my fault for not thinking of it myself but a gentle reminder would have been nice. The walk through of the embellishments was particularly helpful. I'm more of a minimalist and this helped a lot. Thank you, Trudy

Loved the class. I have been teaching card classes for 17 years. Am looking forward to trying all the things I learned today. I am very glad that I will be able to go back and rewatch the video as it moves very quickly I have lots of your stamps and dies.

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.

I really enjoyed your class. You explained cutting and placing very clearly. I am just waiting for my order to arrive and I will add the inserts and then decorate. You have made me excited about crafting again - I came home from our vacation and was in a "Okay. What am I going to do now?" mood! My hubby suggested I sign up for the roses class. I'll certainly look into it! Thanks again for the great class!

The class was amazing. I had all my papers cut, taken the day off work so I could go live with you but ended up having a doctor appointment at the same time so missed you live.(sad). When I got home sat down and watched the class. It gave me a chance to put cut paper in order of use and I will be up bright and early tomorrow to get started. I love the album and as usual your class is so easy to follow. GREAT JOB. I will be ordering more albums but can't do it until after Feb 15. LOVED IT.

By watching the class video first, Emma Lou takes away some of the fears that I had about doing this project. I really like the advice and the info given during her class. There is always something to take away from a class. Thank you for another great class, can't wait to start mine now.

Loved everything about this class. I am making this for my niece who just had a baby girl three weeks ago. I thought this was going to be difficult but the host explained everything so well. Learning how to use the.pocket dies was helpful. This is my second class and I can't wait for the next one in June. Thanks for everything you guys do. I love all of the heartfelt collections. Keep up the great work.

Emma Lou was very informative as usual, I had no trouble following along, didn’t do the albums as she did the class as I needed to concentrate on what she was saying & showing. I have had the albums for over a year & just did not know where to begin, so this has been great.

I so enjoy watching all your craft classes. I don't think I have missed one yet. Sadly, I rarely get to enjoy the live class, as work gets in the way of crafting sometimes :) - so it's awesome that we can watch the video whenever we have time and as many times as we like. Thanks so much for providing this venue for learning!

I wasn't able to attend the class as my 18 month old granddaughter and 4 year old grandson was sick (at the same time!) and needed to help their mother with the two sick kiddos! Looking forward to watch the video to learn how to make the flip folds albums as I already own the three colors. So sorry but me grandchildren come first before my play time!

Another fantastic class from Emma Lou showing us all kinds of very creative ideas for making beautiful things from the Lilac Collection. Great coloring tips and tips for using the stamen, glitter and prills. I have taken all the online classes, and I always learn something new and exciting in each and every one of them.

Was my second class, i already placed an order to get what i need to do the Christmas class. Emma Lou you are great at explaining & demonstrating on how to do the pots & flowers. I have been wanting to try these but was kind of intimidated with it. You made it look so easy. I have everything set out & ready to make my own but I think I am going to paint & decorate the pot itself also.

Thank you so much for offering these amazing classes. This was my first one and I am hooked. I fell in love with card making all over again the moment I came upon Heartfelt Creations. This class once again proves that you are not only interested in selling your products, but you really want to teach your customers how to use them. That is where your company stands above the rest; and for that, I am eternally grateful that I am one of your newest fans. Thank you!

Great class! Very nice to learn how to fold paper over chipboard without it cracking and looking messy. This little birdhouse is such a pretty design. Always fun to learn new ways to decorate one's papercrafts. Emma Lou is a fantastic teacher! Thank you Heartfelt Creations team for another fantastic class!

I thoroughly enjoyed both of the online classes and am amazed at all the information and tips shown and just how much more I have learnt. I had already made an album at a class Emma Lou taught while here in New Zealand but couldn't manage to put another one together by the time I got home. The PDF of paper cutting is a fantastic tool that I will use over and over again Thank you for these classes, so fun and informative. Emma Lou and team you are the best!!

Emma Lou you are so right! You never know what is going on in someone's life. So thank you for saying that & for being an inspiration to all us crafters & for taking us to our happy place!! On Jan. 28, I lost my daddy. I can't stop thinking about him. Life has been so hard since but crafting helps me so much! I love your classes. This was my 5th class & you are always amazing! I am looking forward to the lush lilac class.I love that set

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.

I am an experienced crafter so hadn't taken classes before. Last Aug. for my 70th birthday we went on a Mediterranean cruise. Add to it a surprise party & I needed to preserve those memories. HFC must have been psychic & gave me the Insta-Album. But it looked complicated so I signed up for the class. Thx to Emma Lou, I'll now use all those supplies I ordered last November for the album. She made it look so easy, fun & added lots of ideas for embellishing. Can't wait to get started! Thx for paper code.

Emma Lou, I really enjoyed this class. I learned so much about using the coloring with the pencils, adding design and depth to the pages. I also like the use of the glitter on the pages. This class was really informative in so many ways. Thanks so much for being wonderful instructor. Having the PDF ahead of time was also an added bonus. It makes for a smoother flow of understanding during the class. Thanks so much. I'm signing up for the next class.

I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the wonderful class yesterday! I watched it through again last night after work & got almost half of my album finished! I am so excited!! I have to admit, I was intimidated at first, but Emma Lou makes it look so easy! I love your products and I love taking classes with you whether it's streaming live, or at CKC convention. I am amazed at Emma Lou's patience with everyone and love her positive outlook! Thank you again!!

Thank you so very much for a very educational afternoon. I watched and took notes. I'm ready to start putting my albums together now. I used the coupon and purchased paper for the albums so that after Class 2 I can finish these albums. Then I'll have 4 gifts for my kids for Christmas. I'll let them add their pictures!!! Keep the classes coming!! Just took 2 classes June 17th at the convention in Arlington TX. Learned so much... Thanks, Gail W..

I loved this class! I tried doing this albumn with very little instruction and I thought I would never do another one! It took me a month! This class I did in 24 hours. I stayed up all night and day. I completed it and I am so happy! It looks wonderful! I learned how to use all my dies and I had a ball! I never knew about marrying the dies! I really enjoyed that! Thank-you so much! I am so encouraged to do the next class this weekend! Your a wonderful teacher! You make people realize they can do it!
