I absolutely loved everything about this online class. From the PDF file that was sent to us so we could prepare beforehand to the completed album we created at the end. Emma Lou is such a good teacher. She explains everything clearly and is very encouraging. Thank you for taking the time to show me how easy it is to create a beautiful and elegant mini album.

What a great project Emma Lou taught us how to create! The album has many foldouts that add to the fun. I can’t wait to finish my album (it’s more than half done), and start filling it with photos and journaling about my grandkids! Fantastic class and will be signing up for more for sure.

Thank you so much for this wonderful class, really like the double flip fold album. Easy to assemble , being I’ve put that flip fold together before. Love them tecqnick with the inks on the vellum flowers and putting the glitter on the heated embossing powder. I look forward to your next class and I’m telling my friends all about your next flower shaping class. Thank you again.

This was my first online class and definitely will take many more. I am just starting to work with the flowers and so excited to know I can utilize my colors to match my projects. Instructions were fun, easy to follow and love all the tips and techniques which will make it easier to create these beautiful carnations. The flower mold is such a great tool and will allow making multiple flowers much quicker. Thank you again and truly enjoyed...

This was my first live class and I LOVED IT! Emma Lou made it so easy to follow along, even at the fast pace. Having the .pdf ahead of time, allowed me to get my papers cut out so I could keep up. The class was easy to understand and Emma Lou did a fantastic job explaining everything. I would recommend these classes to anyone who wants to learn how to use papers and add those special touches to make an album unique. Thank you again, Emma Lou and Heartfelt Creations team!

This was my 1st class with Heartfelt and there aren't enough words in my vacabulary to describe how wonderful it was. Emma is an absolutely fantastic instructor. One thing I have to compliment her on is her organization. Others should take lessons from her in producing videos. Fortunately I have had most of the dies & the paper collection for some time, so I was so appreciative of this lesson. BEAUTIFUL TAGS, BOX & THE LANTERN SHAPE MADE ! I have that die also. and can't wait to get started.

This was an awesome class - there were problems with our server so missed the live show earlier today. Having said that, I have learnt how to figure out the number of layers to make each of the roses - I will never forget 3 for the base! and the best thing I learnt was how to create the bud, I had mistakingly put petals side by side rather than across from each other - now I know - I will never get a flat cone again! I think I have a new found friend - Emma Lou - this class was easy to follow, Thank You

This class was informative for me. I never would have known to make an album in this manor. I learned so much by taking this class. Now I think I'm ready to give this process a try. I enjoyed every minute of this learning process. Thanks so much for another wonderful class. Yes, I'm signing up for the next class, so see you them.

This is the first class that I have taken with HFC. It is wonderful. You are thorough and you show everything in detail. The way you lay out the table is also very informative. I have been reluctant to create flowers but you have encouraged me to try it. Thank you for a great first class

I had NEVER seen an album made from "scratch". You made it looks so easy. I am hoping I can remember as much as possible so I can make one -- leaving town for 5 days. The class outlined each step very simply: from laying out the frame, cutting pockets and adding decorative trim. Then the fun part of adding embellishments. Needed the refresher on making poppies, and was wowed at using the mold -- added to wishlist!! Can hardly wait for Mega Meet to pick up things to make an album. Thank you so much.

This was a beautiful class. I typically will watch the class first and then go back and re-watch when working on the project. I like to know what I am getting in to. The coloring techniques were very helpful as well as the ideas for using the molds and dies. Emma Lou is one of the best teachers out there. I would recommend this class to my friends or anyone that wants to up their crafty game.

The flowers were beautiful. Watching this project develop from the beginning to end was fantastic. I was very inspired. I know that I will definitely do this project.. When I started watching I was not sure that I would like it but by the end of this video I absolutely loved it. This was the second class I purchased and I was not disappointed The instructions were clear. I am very happy with all the products that I have purchased from Heartfelt Creation keep up with the great ideas

You can't really make a whole album in 2 hours, even a small one, but Emma Lou does a pretty good job showing the bits that a lot of people might not know how to do. It's too bad that the discussions in the comment section (for instance double sided tape vs. wet glue) don't show up in the recorded version as they were some of the most informative parts of this class. The album is lovely and you should be able to make it after watching the video and following the instructions in the PDF.

If you're an old hand with flip fold albums you probably don't NEED this class. But you'll likely enjoy it nonetheless. The insta album is a great product and I'm off to order more because it's super fun. If you're not an old pro with the flip n folds then hold on tight. The insta album offers all the fun and less than half the hassle. Grab a couple paper pads, cut some paper and prepare to put together a stunning album.

Absolutely thoroughly enjoyed being able to see this class done live...even though it was a verrrrryy early wake up call...as living in Australia gives me very little opportunity to participate in an actual class in person. I enjoyed learning all the techniques and hints associated with this class and it has given me a new enthusiasm to start my crafting again.

This class really helped me get my borders straight. Sometimes I get a little off kilter because I'm left handed so I really appreciate being able to see someone actually do it correctly without guess work. I love these classes. They are very helpful. I do my crafting alone so without the classes and videos and the gallery I don't think I would ever get it right-too frustrating !! Thanks for sharing your expertise with us and thanks to the whole Heartfelt gang for all your great ideas.

This class is very bittersweet in one of those tough times in life it allowed me to just escape for a bit so thank you for that.

Hi Emma Lou. Enjoyed your 8x8 insta album class very much. I like to use a lot of photos and this album has many pretty and interactive spaces to put them in. Love those intricate dies and how they bring such a delicate and enchanting look to the finished project. Thank you to the lovely online support lady for all the help. It was great to be amongst helpful and supportive online community of crafters. Thank you all kindly.

This class provided such a great project for gifts. Doesn't require as much time and product so makes it a doable gift for more friends - YAY!! I especially enjoy all the coloring blending. I would have never thought of using the red with the Tea Rose. That's why I'm a forever fan/student. I'm officially a H/F group.

Loved the different flowers that were made from the same petals. amazing. I love to make the large shaped flowers but they only go to special friends that I can hand deliver to. Our postal system would destroy if sent in the mail even if they were in a mini box case.

This was my 13th class. They have all been amazingly informative and creative. I have created albums, cards, flower pots and more. This class clearly shows how to get the biggest bang for your buck!! 20+ ways to use the dies already in my stash is definitely a class I will return to again and again. HFC never disappoints. Whether at an Expo, on the Blog or an Online class, I continue to learn excellent techniques using quality products. I am impressed with the products and how you share using them.

Emma Lou was great. Class was easy to follow, with lots of additional tips, especially making the ribbon holes and cutting the die on both sides to make a border etc. Well worth getting up very early in Australia to watch. This was my first Heartfelt Creations class and it certainly won't be my last.

Very very impressive class. Realistic covering all the things that could go wrong and how to fix it when it does...which is soooo very helpful. Especially when you're not a seasoned crafter and somewhat scared to try things out. I truly enjoyed this class and can't wait to get started on my project. Thank you so much for all that you do and all the products you create.

The great thing about HFC classes is that you get step by step instruction, tips and tricks. The classes range from card making, albums and this one was boxes and baskets. I have enjoyed making the items from these classes and friends and family have marveled at them. Thank you Andrea and Emma Lou for taking us further in crafting techniques and enjoyment. I will continue to take your classes and encourage others to take them too!! You can rewatch as many times as you need to. All for the same cost.
