Excellent class. Had some basic techniques and some more advanced. I watch the last of it live and look forward to seeing the rest of the class later. My daughter Kristy enjoys the comments with the live and looks forward to the classes.

So happy to join in this class and learn how to make the floral bundles. The green and orange flower are beautiful. I also love the value bundle, they make beautiful florals. Watching you, maybe I can make these amazing bundles, that I could never make when attempting to do so.

Directions were very well done and complete. The colors were beautiful. I felt that the second card was way too busy for my taste.

Fabulous class as always. Your enthusiasm for the products and the crafting that goes into them is very catching and makes most of us Heartfelt Creation addicts. You have a very easy style and delivery which makes watching the online courses enjoyable. Long may it continue. x

As a former professor, training teachers for 30 years, I must say Emma Lou gets the best grade. Her preparedness, warm personality, and enthusiasm combine to mesmerize me every time. I even have my husband watch her for a while. Thanks for your tips and amazing samples. Can't wait to try the roses.

A wonderful class. I love being able to use a flower set in multiple ways! The peony is a nice basic design that can be dressed up or used with minimal layers for mailing. THANKS!

Loved the class. Had some of the border dies for awhile but wasn’t real sure how to use them. Also, now I know how to use the fold out cards! The class was well worth the money. Thanks, Carolyn

Today I joined as Insider Member and this is my first live class. I loved all of the tips that Andrea and the other members gave. Some of the parts were repetitive (such as putting together the clock's white layers) but there were some parts I wish were better explained or explained more in detail. Maybe you can introduce camera footage from above as it could better show the process from above than from side.

I love the creative way Andrea makes albums look so FABULOUS!! It usually takes me watching several times and takes me DAYS to create. I don’t know how she does it so easily and quick!!LOVE IT!!

What a fantastic class. Hadn’t seen the star designs before but will now purchase them. They will make beautiful Christmas cards, plus being able to use them through out the year. This was my first class and really enjoyed it along with the tips. Thank you so much.

This was an amazing class! Andrea covered so much in so little time. It was easy to follow and well organized. Creating the album from back to front made it so easy to see what she was doing. So many tips and techniques in this class to use on future projects. Great class Andrea, I really enjoyed it.

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!!

I love the online classes because they give you a chance to ask questions and see the projects and how they are made versus just reading the directions and trying to figure out what they mean in the blogs. And the other people joining the classes provide good tips and techniques of their own which are very clever and helpful as well. This particular class on the Window Dies with Circle Fold Cards was great in showing the versatility of the dies and how you can mix and match them all to get so many beautiful and elegant cards. Definitely worth the time and money!

What a wonderful class. I was super excited to finally learn how to make the cascading wisterias! Thank you Emma Lou for showing us the "triangle" to help us to place the flowers to make the cascading wisteria. It was wonderful to learn a couple of new card styles as well. I enjoy watching the live classes due to the interaction with Emma Lou and other crafters, but I mostly look forward to replaying the video while I am making the cards - the pause button is my favorite! Thank you Emma Lou and to the production team for bringing us these classes!

Andrea, you did a wonderful job explaining each step in making these lovely necklaces. I love being able to go back to the video and review it, if I forget some of the steps. I purchased the class a year or two ago and made several dozen necklace and earring sets for Christmas gifts. Received so many nice complements. Have lots of parts stamped, cut, and even shaped. Can't wait to finish some other projects, so I can finish those. Would love to see more photos and even another class on jewelry making with the wonderful dies and stamps.

I've taken many online and in person classes over the years from Heartfelt, and I'm always amazed at the new things I learn, the helpful hints and creativity of my fellow crafting community during these classes, and just the general welcoming and kindness that flows from these events. If you haven't tried one of these classes yet, you absolutely need to, they are so worth it! They are super easy to follow along with for any skill level!

I am more than disappointed. I was expecting more for $29. Anyone could cut out paper that has the size provided. I thought the album pages would have been shown. I will not order a class again. This was a terrible experience.

What a great class. Learning how to make flowers in different ways makes them more versatile. My ah ha moment was learning how to make the flower arrangements so they would be ready to put on a card. I will be making those flower arrangements so I will be ready to make cards. I love Heartfelt Creations products.

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 was SO happy when this class was announced. I was intimidated by some of the inserts but NO more. Granted I just watched but I love having this video on hand when I want to refer back to it. Will never miss an online class. Already booked for the next. The short videos you post are great but this first class I hope is just the beginning. Those of us that love Emma Lou can have the opportunity to craft with her :). Thank again for doing this. A great experience!

Another amazing class! Emma you are amazing in your teaching. You are so explicit in all your techniques. What I really appreciated (although you are so good at what you do), if and when you make a mistake you own up to it and laugh at yourself making us all realize that even "pros" can make a mistake. Thank you for another great class and I look forward to another one in October. p.s. I was thrilled to here you mention my name you made my day. God bless your entire team.

Hi! Watching in replay as I could not watch during the day because I work full time. I have a crop weekend coming up this weekend and am so excited to make this album. I have a comment/request...... It would be nice to be able to watch in replay as if we were watching live, meaning that we can see everyone's comments. Similar to watching a facebook live video where you can turn on/off the comments. Also, is there some type of forum or private facebook group where we can ask questions or get help?

First class and I loved it! I just watched and took notes so I could go at my own pace later while watching the class and being able to stop it and then go on. Very great suggestions for adding pockets and the decorative accents for those. Magnet placement a very big plus (even though I had worked with those before), you made it makes sense so much easier than any other instructions I had gotten. I would recommend your classes to everyone that loves creating beautiful albums. Thank you so much!

I was not able to join live, however, I just watched it and loved it. I don't have the sunflower set and I was not going to get it as I am now retired and can't get all. . . . . but I loved this so much I will have to now buy the sunflowers. Hugs from your Canadian buddy Fran. Hope you are all doing well.

Great class Andrea. I prefer a less cluttered look so I am backing off with some of the paper and really liking it. Loved that I found something else to do with this paper and other collections making a scrapbook page. Never too old to learn something new. Thanks.

Loved this class, just waiting for my cherry blossom flower set and mold. Making this for a memory album of my sister for another sister. Needed the push!!, and love the papers. Just now going to cut my papers now and get started, I'll be mindful of placing the magnets. Thank you.

Wonderful!! I think my aha moment was when you mentioned that the really skinny days are for like outlines and I was thinking like the shadows dies! That helps!!

Emma Lou! You have outdone yourself with the incredible decorating of the album! These online classes have been great and I feel so inspired by your talents. I bought the whole collection when it was first released and felt intimidated every time I looked at the inserts, but I'm over the fear...Thanks to these 2 classes and have now made 5 albums. Its such an easy fun way to creating an everlasting memory book for someone for a special occasion or just a Thank you! Thanks for sharing our talent with us
