A wonderful class. I learned so much; working with vellum, stamens, hot glue and designing and shaping my flowers. I would not hesitate to recommend this class to anyone. Didn't think I could do this project, but now I think I could (of course after watching the video a couple more times). You made it look so easy, thank you!

Not surprisingly, the class was excellent. I am glad to have received the email as to what packet would be used for each of the 3 albums. Two hours is sufficient as far as time. I found I was ready to stop at that time. My brain can only hold so much. Even though I am not a beginner, I just watched, took notes, and feel better about going back later to view what I learned. Thank you so much. I look forward to Aug 1.

I received more from this than the cost of it. Preregistration gives you $15 coupon. This class was awesome! The time and all the introduction given for the Insta Album were so clear It was great following along today and being able now to go back and creating my album. Thank you for a great class.

I am a EmmaLou/Heartfelt Creations fan! I have taken classes locally from EmmaLou and they are always a real treasure. I appreciate her spontaneous reactions when things aren't quite right. She encourages me; after all she's the pro! I hadn't tried the foam flowers prior to the class. Watching EmmaLou it all looks so easy! As it turned out it really wasn't too hard. Handling the hot tools required for the shaping was challenging. I plan to make two Mini Albums for Christmas gifts.

This is my 2nd online class and I find that they are easy to follow, the instructions are great and I love how you can use the other papers to make the Mini Album. My Blazing Poppies stamp and dies have not arrived yet but when they do I will certainly be locked in my craft room. I have only recently found Heartfelt Creations and I am loving the way all the products can be fitted together to make absolutely awesome cards. I am have all of the border dies and I am slowly buying the stamps and dies.

So glad I registered for this class. As a beginner I learnt a great deal and it was very inspiring. My confidence to proceed with the insta album has increased immensely. Clear instructions, very helpful especially with the tips, the magnet placements and added tips on how to recover from any errors made along the way. Thank you so much! Blessings, Linda

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!

Just watched the class, but for some reason was not able to comment during live episode. The large purple flower was my favorite of course but very excited to get started. 2nd class I've signed up for and loved them both. Great presentation by Emma Lou. Definitely a great class and can't wait to get started

This was a fantastic class! Emma Lou's instructions made it so easy to make beautiful flowers from the Sweet Peony stamps and dies! I can't wait to get time to re-watch this class so I can improve my flower making techniques. I have been so inspired by all the classes I've taken. Heartfelt Creations is one of the best companies out there, from quality products to instructions for creating gorgeous flowers, cards, albums and home decor!

Another excellent online class led by Emma Lou and team. Action packed and fast paced full of amazing tips and tricks from beginner to experienced crafter. I had already created a Christmas themed insta-album as soon as I received my Black Friday packet. The hardest part is choosing which paper to use on each page - so these are completed very quickly. To help with magnet placement you can add + or - on each red circle. So wonderful to have all the paper measurements noted. And all the pocket dies ...

I was wondering how you cut the ovals for the pages...Now I know and can use this for both oval and circles thank you very much. I also enjoyed you using the pencils on coloring because you gave me more on idea with the inks and pencils (prismacolor pencils I use a lot) never thought about mixing with my inks good idea. I love Heartfelt and use the stamps and dies for albums and cards. Thank you Bonnie

I'm loving the online classes that Emma Lou is doing. It's so nice to watch the first time and then have the opportunity to review the class again as I make the project. I love the feedback from other crafters too. It's also so nice that we get a coupon and a free die. It's just a win-win situation for their customers. You're a great company and everyone is so pleasant to talk with. Thank You HFC, you're the BEST!

As usual I really enjoyed the class, you are such an easy to follow teacher. I am always happy to learn how to make a new album because I enjoy making them for gifts, and a good way for me to use the dies & papers I haven’t used yet. Thank you for a fun afternoon, looking forward to the next class.

This is my third class. I am so impressed how Emma Lou breaks down every part of the project into easy to do sections. I was overwhelmed looking at the picture but decided I take the class to try it. I can't how easy it is. I am in the process of making this project. I go back and look at video every time I have a question. Every part is explained to make it easy to follow. It is so nice you can ask questions during the class. I have learned so much from each class. It is a Great way to learn.

I really enjoyed this album class. Andrea was very clear and concise with her instructions about every step. I like how she showed a couple of examples of putting together each step, but had the majority of it put together. A very creative album and another fun way to use a lot of dies I have. Thank you

Thank you so much for putting on these online classes. I love the fold out cards, and I had a chance to take a class at the Mesa stamp and scrapbook expo. This class clarified a few things for me so I feel more confident using the product I’ve purchased.

Thank you so much for the class yesterday - I loved it! I wasn't prepared to cut the ovals from the main pages so I couldn't keep up with you, but I had everything else cut and ready. Did more coloring last night! I'm really looking forward to my beautiful finished project!

I love all your classes and ideas. Would like to learn how to make gift card holders that fold up and close with a flap. Something like the flip fold card class I'll be taking in Akron this Friday, but on a smaller scale to hold gift cards. With the holidays coming would be a item to use. I remember the first convention I went to in Lancaster the demonstrator used clear plastic in the cards. Haven't seen that lately. Great addition to cards that add dimension.

Every time I take a class I learn so much. I never thought that I would be able to do any of the things that you show until I took you class. You make everything so easy to do. I never thought that I would be able to color until I watched this class. I can't thank you enough. The last class that I toke was the shaker card and I made one for my mothers 90th birthday party and it was a hit. I had everyone sign the tags that were in the middle of the book.

This class has made my Arizona morning even more beautiful! I don't know when I have been more excited and nervous. Heartfelt Creations has brought great joy to my 77 years. Wish I were younger so I could see more of your future creative years. God bless your whole family staff glad you are there for we crafters. Thanks from, Coye in Glendale, Arizona.....Bye.

This one is pretty complex, but the ability to rewind and rewatch the session over and over is fabulous and gets me coming back and signing up for more classes. I’ve learned so much and feel like my skill level has improved in leaps and bounds. Looking forward to more learning opportunities. I wish I was able to watch live...but I love the format!

Love the class. I have taken one other video class but this was the first live class. It was nice to be able to ask questions along the way and see other people's questions and helpful comments. I wish I would have die cut my flowers before hand but I only has them stamped so I was not able to do many of the techniques shown. Also I purchased the opaque mouse and not the platinum one used. Would have also like to see how to use the groove golf tools. Did learn a lot about using stamens and lacquer. Especially liked the methods on using art foam with the heat gun. Vellum flowers are my favorite. All the techniques and methods can be used for all types of flowers also. Thanks again, I was glad to see that your hands get as sticky as mine do and you can make a mess also! I really appreciate it was real.

This was perfect. I saw an HFC ad for the flipfold albums and bought the set of kraft, white and black. Then I just looked at them!! They were put on a shelf to "get to later". Now you have inspired and excited me to get an album finished. Last evening I was invited to a wedding shower for August 11th and as I watched this class, I decided that I can finish an album in the wedding papers and dies for her shower. Reading directions is essential but seeing it makes it realistic. Thank you again for you

Amazing class using the decorative border die sets! So many tips and techniques that I did not know how versatile these die sets could be used for creating elegant cards. Can't wait to make page pockets on my scrapbook layouts. Love Heartfelt Creations products and learning new ways to create beautiful craft projects.

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 watched this class live and it was great. But I had a QUIET afternoon and decided to watch it again....and it was even better. There were sections I didn’t pay attention to.....and now, I can’t wait to make more flowers! Thank you, Mmalou or the great techniques! You are a wonderful and fun teacher! Love you! ❤️

Thank you, again, for a great on-line class. I learned so much from it. I have had the albums and packets of inserts sitting in my craft room ever since they came out, and have not successfully put one together. I did try, once, and became overwhelmed. I was confident I could make one, but hadn't done so. I think the magnets were the most confusing part for me. After watching your class, I am sure I can manage one now. You are a great teacher. Your instructions were clear and concise, and you sh
