Andrea did a beautiful job demonstrating how to make this lovely project. She included lots of tips and tricks for working with the vellum as well as flower shaping and how to best use the stamens. Great class!

This was my first live class, to be honest I was hesitant to purchase the class, I watched a few videos and felt I could do this on my own. But I loved the previous pre recored classes I purchased so I decided to make time to attend and I was so glad I did. I got lots of new ideas I wouldn't have thought of, saw how the process all came together and got my questions answered. It was so much fun ! Just like getting together with your girl friends to craft. Can''t wait to take another 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.

I want to tell you how much I loved your two classes for the flip fold albums. Both were extremely informative and I feel very confident that I will be able to creat beautiful albums with your expert instruction. The PDF that you sent was invaluable in preparing for the instruction and helpful for future albums.

Another great class and I look forward to making my album. I am going to make this into a baby album for my nephew and his wife. Any chance for a baby collection? I Love how I can do one stop shopping with you and get all I need as far as paper, coordinating stamps and dies and embellishments. I love the idea of the circles for magnet placement but it would be nice if you numbered the circles so you know what circles go together. I love Heartfelt Creations!

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 was unable to attend the live class but just got through watching it on my own. Like the other classes I have attended, I finished feeling very confident, and with many ideas of what I can do for friends and family. I do wish that there was someway to skim through the comments made during the live class as I feel helpful questions were asked and answered Otherwise, the class was perfect, and I look forward to more!

Really enjoyed another in depth class on flower making..beautiful finished picture. I was a little disappointed we weren’t offered a special bonus coupon just for the ones that took the class. As the stamp set offer is for everyone. Look forward to next months class. Love your products and your company beliefs.

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!

The online classes offered by HFC are a wonderful way to learn how to get the best use from the products. Not only do they teach step by step techniques but they expand it by completing a project or using multiple ways to use the stamps, dies and various products. This class created the most beautiful peonies using vellum. She explained not only the how, but the why for using the inks, golf tools, etc. to make the perfect flowers and leaves.

This was my first class and let me say that it was very informative and the completed flowers were gorgeous. The difference between Emma Lou's short videos and her classes are extreme. The class goes into more depth on making flowers and I learned so many little tips and tricks on making flowers; it was amazing. Thank you!

I find myself sometimes looking at something and thinking that it is way to hard or too much work, although I am a detail person. I am so glad I took this class even if I was not at the live one. I am anxious to get going with some mini albums. I had no clue how nice those could be and the vellum flowers are beautiful. Heartfelt Creations is my favorite crafting company because of the way that a lot of the sets can be used together. Love the idea of making these for my all time favorite bible verses!

I love all of Emma Lou's classes! She is an excellent teacher and you feel like she is right beside you. She moves at a good pace, and explains carefully. And you can always go back and watch again. This was my third class and I think the best one yet, although I say the same thing after each class. Don't hesitate to take a class, and make sure you prepare according to the PDF and you will have the most enjoyable two hours! Thanks Emma Lou! I am definitely signing up for the next carnation making class !

This class has been the best ever. It helps me so much to watch and learn from Emma Lou and from the online comments. Our combined knowledge is amazing and very well worth the cost of the class. I always walk away inspired and want to put my life on hold and scrapbook! Love you all!

Emma Lou has done it again!!! This is a wonderful class to learn about making albums (as well as pockets, creating flowers with and without the molds, etc). She always has time to answer questions and even elaborate on what she's already done. This class really pointed out the difference in glitters, backing with black card stock, coloring, adding stamens, flower forming and how to use the border dies. We even learned a little IT lesson! Love the classes, love the sharing and comments, LOVE Heartfelt!!!

I LO he class! Even though I'm an experienced crafter, I still enjoy seeing how Emma Lou does things and I enjoy hearing (reading) what others have to stay. A person never knows it all. I'm going to sign up for the next class as well. I would LOVE to when the $100.00 shopping spree. There's so much I want yet. Thanks for doing these classes for us.

Fantastic class with Emma Lou - so many wonderful ways to make gorgeous flowers and especially love the vellum and foam. I have taken several classes, and have enjoyed them all - my big disappointment today was not being able to read or leave a comment - don't know why, but could never get it to work - otherwise great class again!!

This class was filled with all sorts of techniques: water coloring, layering pieces, reinforcing the images with cardstock to name just a few. Taking a class always makes me want to head to my craft room to create and try techniques I haven't attempted or have felt too intimidated to try. Thank you Emma Lou.

I loved all the tips and the variety of shaping techniques. These shaping techniques will help me so much even with other flower shapes. I would never have guessed that so many looks could be created with just one petal type especially a tulip. And I love that I can re-watch this video unlimited times!

I thought this was excellent. you showed me how to shape my roses in ways I haven't used. You went slow enough to really see what you were doing... the camera angles were great also. so many beautiful techniques.

This was my 3rd class, and LOVED it. Emma Lou was very thorough, giving flower petal numbers and sizes and color suggestions for each different peony. My favorite was the embossed flower. Very helpful to watch you add the stamens to the flowers and show how to repair torn flower. Plan to use these different ideas on other flowers as well. This was the first time I used my basic mold -- wonderful !! Thank you for all the great ideas and inspiration.

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.

Love, love, love this beautiful album! Emma Lou has wonderful teaching techniques that stick with you. It is so nice that we can go back and review the classes as much as we need to. Can't wait to use all of the fabulous Heartfelt Creations stamps, papers and dies for this class! They make it so easy!! Thank you!!!

The class was wonderfully informative. Andrea was well prepared. Her instructions were very precise. I loved that we did several different flowers with magnets so the necklace could easily be changed for different colors and flowers, I always enjoy Heartfelt classes and having videos I can repeat is very helpful.. Thanks for another wonderful class.
