Emma Lou taught another great class showcasing many ways to use the gateway dies. She provided many different ways to pair the dies together and many ideas of different types of cards to create with the dies.

I really enjoyed today's class. I signed up for the class to see the products in "action." I wanted to see the products used together to complete a finished mini album. I am a visual learner to watching a live class helped me vs reading an instruction list. In the class, I was able to see how easy it is to shape borders and assemble a mini album. I liked receiving the "homework" so I know what sizes to cut. I am glad you explained the difference between Memento and Stazs on ink. This helped my Confidence.

I thought the class was terrific. When I first looked at the inserts I thought I would never be able to figure them out. Emma Lou explained them so well that I feel confident I'll be able to do these following and pausing the video. The demonstrations were very clear and easy to follow. Thank you...can't wait for the next class!

Thank you, Emma Lou! Such a helpful class! Now I think my flower coloring will turn out better. And, I feel ready to tackle a flower pot, or a hanging basket of flowers, or a poinsettia pot . . . so many ideas flowing! Love the creative synergy!

I took the class to learn how to make the different flowers. I tried to follow along, but found I had to pause often because I was also trying to make the flowers as Emma Lou finished them. I LOVE the opportunity to see it live and then pause to try myself. I like the way Emma Lou restates the comments from participants, because in the replay mode, no chat is visible. Actually, I was so engrossed in watching and making flowers, I didn't have time to even look at the chat! Thank you for the class

Thank you so much, Emma Lou, for the fabulous 8x8 Insta Album online class! You are an amazing presenter, with very clear and precise instructions and guidance. I was so impressed with the instruction sheet before the class with all of the placements for cutting the papers - it took away all the fear of exactly where to cut each piece. This was my second class and would highly recommend these classes that give hints and tips to creating our own works of art! I love all that Heartfelt Creations stands for.

Andrea, Loved your class. You are a natural at not only instructing others but also keeping up with all the questions. Hope to make some jewelry soon. I can't wait for Scrapbook Expo in Duluth, GA and the classes there. I am taking 3 of them. Will definitely come by and see you at the booth. Happy 4th of July to you and all the Heartfelt family. Thanks again for a great class. Stephanie

I really enjoyed this class from learning to make a new album to learning about velum, which I haven't used much, now after your wonderful teaching I sure I will do a lot more in velum, thank you. I am going to make the albums for Christmas cards for my kids so they will have a place for their pictures after Christmas.

Absolutely a wonderful class. Learned so much about the use of the dies. We invest so much in dies that it is great to see the many ways to use them. Please, please continue classes using your albums...like an album per paper collection. Also, agree with someone today...need a collection of cardstock that will go with your papers. Thanks for a great class.

Awesome class. I missed the first part but I can go back and watch later. I just hope I will actually put it together. This is my 3rd class I think, and I love everyone of them. Emma Lou does a fantastic job and makes it look so easy. One day I hope to take a class at a show if I can find one near me, I live in Oklahoma. Love all your products, I think I'm more of a hoarder. The papers are so pretty I hate to cute them up.

The Decorative Floral Photo Frame was an excellent class. Andrea showed us new ways to use the Tulip stamps and dies to make beautiful roses. This will be one of the videos that I refer back to many times for inspiration. Thank You Heartfelt Creations for providing us another class for inspiration.

Loved, loved, loved the class.. I took your class at the Scrapbooking Expo, but all pieces were provided in the project. This class gave me the tools I needed to create my own project with my own paper and ideas. AND.....the best part was regarding the foam flowers, which is the real reason I took the class. Especially loved the heating aspect of it as each flower petal comes out different and unique. Thank you, so much for your products and classes. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all.

I liked the class a lot, I learned many new techniques that I did not know, I only saw the class I need to do it, this album was great for me to give a present to someone special, I hope to take more. Congratulations to the heartfelt group. I love the company and its products. They are magnificent. I send you a greeting from Mexico.

I fell in love with the live class! I learned more than just how to use Heartfelt Creations products. I got instruction on how to color, shape, layer, glitter, and a PDF with sizing. We got to interact with Emma Lou during filming and ask things I wanted to know. It was such an amazing experience! I can go back and watch whenever I want to. Oh, oh, oh...and we got an exclusive deal too! You can apply all promotions and coupons in the same purchase, meaning no manipulation or tricks. So worth it!!

I really like that I can go see the class again (1) I can't absorb it all the first time (2) I had several interruptions I could be cool about and jus go with the flow. Emma Lou is very calm in a couple of disruptive occurrences. The lesson was beautiful and helpful.

Great class! I had just finished a birthday card for my son using this set. This class gave me so many new ideas for the next cards I need to make for two more sons in October. Lots of great tips and cute ideas I had not thought of. Thanks for the wonderful class and I can't wait until the next one!

This class was great, I loved learning how to make such a gorgeous mini album. I bought Flip Fold Albums and all the inserts when they first came out and made one, but learning how to use the inserts to make a mini album has opened the possibilities for me. I can make beautiful albums for occasions for myself or to give as gifts. I also loved learning how the vellum colors and seeing how the different inks react with the vellum, such great knowledge to expand my crafting. Emma Lou Rocks!

— Laurie St Onge-Merges
Loved this class and how you made a multitude of pockets. I am purchasing the insta album today but as make albums from scratch I may make a smaller version of an album similar to this. Will take the ideas for pockets and some flaps. Even when you make a mistake Emma Lou it is very easy to fix and nobody by the album maker will know there was a mistake. I take most of your classes as they are a very good price and unlike taking a class locally you have the video available to refer to at a later date
