Another great class experience. Love the idea of using a sponge to add glue when glittering/embossing intricate pieces. I can see a camp themed book using the bear collection, bees and smores in the shaker. Also using frolicking frosty and snow flakes. Gonna need a LOT of shadow boxes.

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 thoroughly enjoyed the necklace class. The demonstration was very clear and showed how to createthe flowers from start to finish. I can’t wait to start my own necklace!

I’ve been viewing your video many time and practicing. My roses are getting more and more beautiful, practicing a lot. Getting very good comments on my roses. I like your video and you are an excellent teacher. Very easy to follow you. Thank you for showing people with your techniques. I love your products.

This was my very first class and will someday be my first Insta-Album. Emmy Lou has an easygoing manner and somehow manages to patiently answer questions while she crafts. I’ve rewatched this class twice again and being able to do that may be one of the best values of the class for a beginner (like me). I hope that one day I will complete an album of my own; in the meantime I’ll go watch the class a few more times

Emma Lou, Thank you for offering this online class and having it as a REPLAY. It takes me a few minutes to grasp the details of creating the flowers and a FAST paced class is not the learning environment that works for me. This is my first online class with you and I look forward to many more. Thanks for all of the TIPS and TECHNIQUES to make flower shaping not as intimidating as it looks. This class is EXCELLENT for a beginner!

I really enjoyed the class and how versatile the inserts are. I took a class at Expo in Grapevine for the mini flip fold album and now I'm hooked.

I enjoyed this class so much. I feel so much more confident on making the pockets with the dies, also putting the flip album together. Emma Lou is a great teacher and so laid back, she makes it so much fun. She gives us so many great tips and your company brings out so many wonderful tools and teaches us how to use them. Can't wait to sign up for another class. Thank you!!

I found this class exceptional to understand how all the new dies work. The album is beautiful and I hope I can make mine look as great as Emma Lou’s. But even for special cards I have so many ideas floating around in my head now to enjoy making unique and fun surprises.

Just love Emma Lou’s classes!! I’m in the U.K., so sadly the free paper pad with a $100 spend won’t be possible, but what an excellent deal! I love the way Emma Lou explains and demos her classes, such a creative mind to come up with these projects!! I’ve messaged my girl friends in the USA today to tell them about Heartfelt Creations and the Insta Album - can’t believe they didn’t know about you! You’ve got 3 new converts as from today! Thank you so much for sharing your creativity. Cathy

It’s so nice to see you making the project. The best part is that I can watch it over again as many times as I need or want!

I think this is the tenth on-line class I have taken. The beauty of the projects is undeniable. The usability is amazing. First, the products are well engineered and designed to create elegant and fun projects and allow the beginner or the expert crafter to feel confident in their ability and proud of their work. Second, the class as taught by Emma Lou, not only teaches you how to make the project, but also the tips and techniques to work with the products and the many different ways to use in crafting

Had such a busy weekend at expo, and everything else happening this week I totally forgot about my class. I am so thankful that you added it to my account. I just watched it, and as always I am amazed at how easy Emmalou makes it so that even beginners can follow along. I love that I can watch it through and then prep all my supplies, and then re-start the video and work along with it and hit the pause button if I can't keep up. I would love a reminder of the class the day before, if possible. thanks

Sweet class!! Took it specially for using the foam. Instructions were clear and easy to follow.
5/5
— Jan Debnam
I now have a greater love for foam flowers, which translates into making more of them. The Stamens ARE easier to use after paying attention and using the "do it 10 times" advise. I get so excited before during and after these classes! Your tips, the feedback and questions from other class members is invaluable! Afterwards I am so full of ideas and excited!!! Thanks soooo. much for sharing your enthusiasm and allowing us to be a part of it too.

This was the first class I was able to attend. I loved the glitter added to the flower petals and the dimensional lilacs with the stems and hot glue. I will definitely attend another class as often as I can! Thank you for all your great ideas and sharing them!

I like that you learn to use their products and mix and match the various collections together. My daughter likes that the techniques you learn can be applied to any project you make.

— Eldene Jeppson
this was my first on-line class. I was a bit concerned about being able to follow along and finish the project, so as suggested I watched the video first. So glad I did! Because at age 70 I'm not always a "quick study". I think the pace is perfect for someone experienced in watching the on-line classes. Emma Lou did a wonderful job. Her explanations were clear and easy to follow. She appears to be a very patient and polite person. I look forward to the May Class.

Thank you Emma Lou for once again sharing your crafting knowledge. The Paper Roses session showed me how take my crafting to another level. The roses are gorgeous and learning the tweezer trick was awesome! I now know what to do with Crystal Lacquer. I love your classes, I love your enthusiastic teaching style it is awesome. I love Heartfelt Creations.

Once again Emma Lou has brought a fun and informative online class. I will be making a mini album for our youngest daughter featuring her daughter and son. I can’t wait to begin choosing the photos of our grandkids for the album. I know she’ll love it as much as I will making it.

Emma Lou has topped herself, yet again! Another great class filled with many special tips for additional ways to create with the Heartfelt Creations products we own! She also gave great reminders on how to use some of the little "extras" that we've already got! Loved it! Excited to sign up for the next class! Don't want to miss out! ! !

It was a great class. Learned so much about coloring and mixing daubing with pencils. The file that was send out ahead of time was so easy to print out and then get all my things together that I needed. Laura Lou is always so welcoming and makes you happy just watching her. I have so many collections and now I have overcome my hesitation of actually cutting up the paper. lol Can't wait for the Christmas class.

— Inga Russ
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.

Wonderful class creating lilac and hydrangea blossoms which reminded me of the circle technique used on your blog 1/16/15 by designer Archana Joshi with Birds and Blooms Collection. Lots of great tips from Emma Lou in particular the stamens pushed through holes poked into the lilac spray which gave incredible dimension to the bouquet. I always learn new tricks and get inspired with all the ideas for projects to create!

The class was jam packed with information. Emma Lou and her support staff have everything ready for teaching and the class moves forward without hesitation. Questions are answered during the live chat by Emma Lou and customer service right away! All supplies are listed and a PDF with class instructions and materials are available before the class. Thank you for another wonderful class and the ability to view the class as many times as needed.

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!

Emma Lou, epxlqins things so they are easy to follow. I learned some new tips on cutting paper for my pages that can be used in other albums. I followed along while she made the album and am going to make one. What the nice thing is once you paid for the class it stays forever and you can back and use it as a reference. Great job Emma Lou.

I made the Heartfelt Creations orchids in vellum before but was never able to get some of their other flowers to work. I took this class and learned some new techniques that I will be trying not only on the peonies but on some of the other flowers that I have. I really enjoyed this class and would recommend it to anyone wanting to make vellum flowers.

Absolutely wonderful class, I learned lots of great tips and ways to use my dies. Your company is such an inspiration, I like to make cards for my ill patients, I can't describe in words the emotions they display when they get a beautiful card made with your products and the enjoyment I get when it touches their hearts in such a deep way. I am often told by my patients these are the moments they will treasure to know that someone other than family thought enough about them to try and brighten their day.

This was my first on-line class with Heartfelt Creations. I took a card class at the Denver Expo and got hooked on your products there. I can’t wait to use the border die set I have and after taking the class I know I will need all of them! Very informative and the best part is that I can refer back to it whenever I need to.

Love this class!! Andrea really gets into the details, and leaves no one behind. I would never dare attempt this photo frame on my own. Now I feel like I can do this with no problem. I learned a new favorite way to make roses too!! Easy Peasy!! Thanks for a great class!
