Loved the class! Would have liked a file of the products shown in the class today so I don't have to watch a 2 hour presentation over and over to recreate the cards. Thanks, Emma Lou!

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

Loved the class, so many interesting things to make. I can also see the booklets used in other albums with pockets and belly bands. Just a pity I can't watch it live. In Australia I would ave to be up at 3.30am. Keep up the wonderful work.

Just loved the entire class. I had never taken an online class before, so it was all an “ah ha moment” for me. I will certainly be interested in taking more classes now. It was hard to believe that it was over 2 hours long! That time just flew by.

Loved this class as always!! Great Job Emma Lou. I never thought about cutting off some of the pocket to make it fit a page or card; unique tip. Love the ideas for all the lace. I am wondering what the next class will be and I hope it is 3D. I also, hope you are going to come out with one of the many ideas I sent like the French theme, or mermaid and treasure chest to go with Under the Sea. If You use one of my ideas can I just know a little ahead of everyone else? Darlene in Tx.

It’s so convenient to take the Heartfelt classes in your own home. Emma Lou does an amazing job of demonstrating while keeping up with the constant stream of questions and comments. I always seem to learn something unexpected in her classes. I love the enthusiasm, creativity and positivity!!

This is my fourth on-line class and I can't say how much I appreciate Emma Lou - such a great teacher. I've been surprised each time about how much I learn - applying to my creations and seeing the improvements! Thanks for such great products to use and the class incentives! Love Heartfelt Creations!!!

Thank you to Andrea and Tracy for such a fun and informational class. Usually I have just watched the classes later, but I never realized the fun interaction to be had when you participate LIVE! Meeting like-minded Heartfelt-aholic "fan"-atics is a bonus to such a helpful class. You learn from each other, too, because others ask those questions you also want answered. I knew Vellum can be a challenging medium, but Andrea made it look easy enough even I can do it. Thanks so much for sharing with us!

Oh Andrea, but a wonderful class. I loved the end product and all the little details and hints you gave along the way. You are so pleasant to listen to with a beautiful smile. I have written down many of your hints and will be rewatching the video several times when I make my piece. Thank you again for the great teaching job. I enjoyed it so much.

The Rose Making Class was OUTSTANDING! Speaking as a handicapped person, working with one hand, I was totally surprised to be able to make roses (almost) as beautiful as Emma Lou's. I know with more practice...and patience, I'll get there. I thoroughly enjoyed myself, especially seeing all the different colors of roses that were opened up to us. The garden is our playground.....and I'm ready to play! Thanks Emma Lou and Heartfelt for another GREAT Class!

Really enjoyed another in depth class on flower making..beautiful finished picture. I was a little disappointed we weren’t offered a special bonus coupon just for the ones that took the class. As the stamp set offer is for everyone. Look forward to next months class. Love your products and your company beliefs.

First of all, these are not expert level projects but they look like they are! I'd guess you could make any one of these boxes or baskets in about an hour. Most of your time would be spent with your cutting machine. The instructor is very good at keeping the banter going ... no awkward silence when she's gluing or anything . And she's great about remembering where the camera is so we can see each little step. I like that she performs the repetitive steps so we can get another look at how it was done. So, yeah. I'd definitely say you should check out this video class.

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.

I have had lots of experience in jewelry making in my past. With that on my mind, I was not sure if I wanted to spend the extra money for this class. I decided to bit the bullet and purchase it. I was very happy I did, because it went into a lot of details how to prepare the paper flowers for wearing. Plus, I really enjoyed the interchangeable feature of the magnetics. Thank you Heartfelt, for continuing my every purchase, to be a great value to my business.

I was so happy to be able to learn how to make these gorgeous gorgeous necklaces. The class was well-paced and very informative. Can't wait to try one of my own!

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.

— Madeleine Barnett
Andrea I love your clear instructions and feel confident to try out the different aspects you taught us. Who'd of thought the Scor Pal and use of the Ink Pad could create an effect that would wow any project. I loved the new way to colour vellum, I had never thought of colouring on the front - such a simple tip but so effective. Thank you for answering all of our questions in the midst of your on-line live teaching class. Your calming and gentle style sends a relaxing vibe across the airwaves, you are easy to listen to and your step-by-step instructions perfect. Thank you again.

I am so so glad I decided to pay for this class, I just wish I was able to take the class when it first came out. Of course now I have to buy the follow up class because I just need to know how to add the paper without messing it up. Thank you so much for making these classes available to watch on line. Heartfelt is so amazing and I am so blessed to have found you!

— Tina Bauer
The instructions were AMAZING!  Very direct, and detailed enough that anyone could follow along.  I now feel VERY confident that I could make these roses, and add that extra special touch to my cards, to make them into real pieces of art.  Loved the class, looking forward to the next online class

This class was a fabulous way to see the versatility and creative options with these window dies. They've been sitting on my desk since I purchased them a few months ago, so I'm inspired now to pull them out and make my own creations. I love the PDF file which helps us so much knowing what paper page to use, etc. Heartfelt Creations is the best, as always!

Emma Lou does an excellent job of explaining how to make this beautiful Insta-Album. The class is organized, well thought out, and very informative. Every detail is explained in a manner that enables even the most novice crafters to understand the steps of how to make this album from beginning to end. It showed me that, once all the papers and dies are cut, it can be assembled in a couple of hours. How great is that! I am very inspired! Love the fact that I can watch this over and over. Thanks HC : )

Super class! I love that I learned to create the album with supplies I already have. Makes the album at the ready...all the time. Great to learn how to do the spine, and I can do math so I can do more pockets or wider spaces in case I need to put flowers inside! So well taught, easy to understand and for my $30 I get to attend the class as many times as I want. Such a great value for the money. The PDF file is a wonderful addition, so with a few minutes here and there I can prepare ahead of time. Thanks!!

This was my first online class. Plus I'm new to card crafting. I enjoyed learning about water coloring and glitter. The class gave me the confidence to try it myself. Thanks

Loved the class. I appreciate seeing Emma Lou's creativity because it gives me ideas. Also, the classes take the edge off and the home project is not so intimidating. Also, I had a AH-HA moment when she advised how to cover paper mistakes and sharing crafting ideas with others.

Yesterday I participated in the Lilac and Hydrangea class. It was superb! I am new to paper crafting and I look at the 3D flowers and am amazed by them. I first purchased stamps and die cuts from Heartfelt Creations several years ago and only began taking their classes this year. I have been amazed every time I watch Emma Lou explain a technique. She makes it all look so effortless. The techniques she shared in this class are invaluable to a newbie like me! I actually have the confidence to try these now.

— Linda Goldfarb
Andrea was very thorough in her explanations. She gave alternatives in several places and reassured those new to Heartfelt that their results may not be exact, but would be equally beautiful. Even though I was unable to attend live, she made sure she addressed my question.

Absolutely loved the class. This was my first on line class and I appreciated the ‘tips to cut and color the pieces ahead of time to be able to follow along. The class went very fast....but have watched again to complete even more pieces. Emma Lou is clear in instructions and I have made many carnations since! I took them to my local craft store and shared with the owner wh also has taken classes from Emma Lou. Thank you for your inspiration with many other ways to use the flowers.

This was my 3rd class, and LOVED it. Emma Lou was very thorough, giving flower petal numbers and sizes and color suggestions for each different peony. My favorite was the embossed flower. Very helpful to watch you add the stamens to the flowers and show how to repair torn flower. Plan to use these different ideas on other flowers as well. This was the first time I used my basic mold -- wonderful !! Thank you for all the great ideas and inspiration.

Emma Lou-thank you so much for the best class ever! I learned soooooo much. You’re explanations were so clear to understand and the techniques so wonderfully exciting but also useful. Can’t wait to put my album together and decorate with vellum flowers. Love to all at Heartfelt Creations for all you give to us.

Emma Lou I Enjoyed the class very much!!! Thanks for showing so many different coloring and shaping techniques of the flowers. Looking forward to re-playing and following along as I make these beautiful flowers later. I wish the comments would remain on page when I am re-playing, if their is anyway to make this happen it would be great. Loving reading the comments too!

I have been making flowers for awhile. In the class I discovered that I need to make things simpler. It really only take a small amount of pressure and no need to crush them up so much. Your flowers are flatter and my are have more pointed at the bottom. The simple techniques to make beautiful flowers. I didn’t know how to do the Stamens. I will be doing more of them. Thanks for getting me to the next level.

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

Wow, what a great class on making the insta-album. Love all the creativity and ideas presented. The pocket dies are a big help in creating hideaways for pictures. Thank you for making it look so easy. Eager to get started on one.

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!

I loved learning how to make the project itself. I can see so many ways I can use this idea to create more projects. I always learn so much from your videos. It is great to see so many techniques that can be used in any project. I have purchased all your classes. I don't want to miss out on new ideas. Emma gives clear and precise directions. It is great to go back and rewatch classes. Your products are excellent and make all my projects special.
