Absolutely loved the class! It helped me so much. Now I am more confident about making an album. Now that I know what I am doing I am going to make several albums for Christmas gifts. Thank you

As always I enjoyed this class. The reason I try to do all these classes is to learn new techniques and get ideas so that I really can stretch myself. The scrapbook page was beautiful and the shaker photo something I would not have come up with on my own, I loved how items were cut and repurposed. As for the shaker clock that was stunning. I would never have done that on my own. The instructions were clear,the 2 hours flew by and I felt inspired by the end of it. Thank You Heartfelt Creations.

Thank you for the wonderful inspiration in this peonies class. It was so helpful to see the variety of ways to color and shape. We’re never too seasoned to learn something new in every class. So often I just go back to a class for new ideas and relearn something I’ve forgotten. Thank you for your detailed demos, Emma Lou!!

This is definitely a class I will be watching multiple times, and making each of the cards to really get the hang of using them all together, to make elegant sophisticated projects.

What a wonderful class Emma Lou, I now have a greater knowledge of creating baskets & boxes to display all my flower I’ve created so much fun. Thank you for this wonderful class. Your son is so adorable.

Thanks so much Emma Lou! What an amazing class! Your explanations and top tips were extremely clear and precise. You are a very inspirational teacher and your enthusiasm for all you do is so infectious! This is my first online class, but I wasn’t able to see it live as I’m in Perth, Western Australia and the time was 2 am! It is wonderful that I am able to watch this class in my own time again and again to catch all your tips. Thanks again for all you do for the crafting community!

Heartfelt Creations classes are simply icing on the cake with glitter - I mean sprinkles! I learn pointers that are “in the box” that I hadn’t thought of and pointers that are “out of the box” that stretch my imagination! That’s why I’m learning to sign up for the classes even if I already have ideas - cuz I don’t know the half of it! ????. I highly recommend signing up for classes early so that you get the $15 store credit!

This was my first online class. I took a class last June at the Chantilly VA Scrapbook Expo and love the techniques I learned. This time it will be great to have the class to refer back too as I “lost” some of the techniques I learned in June. I tried to work as the class progressed but being a beginner I had to quit and just wTch, which I should have been just watching from the beginning. Actually I did color the flowers so I could play later. The flowers are so life like. Thank you for being wonderful you

Wow, what a class this was! I learned so many new techniques in the class. The gift baskets looked so difficult to do but after seeing the step by step and the easy explanations Emma Lou gave us on the "how to" they were not as difficult as the gift baskets looked. I really liked the refresher lesson on making the roses and great for any new comers. Thanks for this easy to follow class.

Emma Lou, thank you for the wonderful presentation of the inserts for the flip fold album. I must admit I was a little concerned how I could incorporate all this material. I made my own pockets, fold-outs, and waterfall from scratch with my first attempt using the flip fold album. (It came out beautiful, if I may say so.) But now with your inserts I don't have to measure and cut so much. Just look at the time I'll save. I love HFC's stamps and the precision cut of the dies. Thanks for making life FUN!

This class was exactly what I hoped it would be. It showed the 4 did sets and how they fit together as well as the pieces that will mix and match with each set. I bought all 4 but have been a bit overwhelmed as to where to start. Although I will watch the class several more times, I feel ready to start playing with them.

The class on elegant dies was helpful and one I will watch more than once. So many ideas and inspiration. This was maybe my 5th class, I have loved them all.

Once again Emma Lou out did herself, showing us how to use 2 stamps, 2 dies, and the shaping mold to make beautiful flowers. Heartfelt classes are worth every minute and I like the fact that I can go back and review the class again to brush up on techniques and get inspired to make new projects. I love to learn how to make a basket from the Gift of Love Box die set to be a holder for bouquets of flowers .

Thoroughly enjoyed this class. Helped me understand how the various borders worked together and just how versatile they are. I will be referring to it over and over again, I’m sure. Thank you!

This was such an amazing class. My first live one. I loved seeing how to do the pockets on the top and bottom of the pages and how to use the paper strips to reinforce the seams. I like having the flaps of the pages close with magnets and appreciated the mention on where placement should be. Can't wait for the next class and already have my the album. I would love to know what paper would be great to use for a more masculine birdhouse. Thanks so much, this was a great way to spend a couple of ho

One of the best classes I have ever taken. Emma Lou is a fabulous instructor making sure we understand how to make everything plus she slips in lots of extra crafting tips along the way. Love the fact that there is no note taking because I can review the class as many times as I want and when I want. I was so excited at the finish of the class can't wait for the next one.

I had previously taken the first Insta-Album class and was pleasantly surprised at how many different techniques I learned from the Tender Moments Insta-Album class. There are so many ways to approach and embellish these albums.

This was a great online class. I particularly liked that Emma began with blank, uncolored paper and build the roses. Step-by-step visuals are always superior to pdf files in my view. Watching her actually color, then shape the flowers with the tools was just like having her at my side. As crafters, we really do have to come up with something better than hot glue. Cool glue that holds like hot glue maybe? Viewing the various samples made with rose components was great inspiration.

I Never realized that you could cut images apart and fill them into your flowers until today. I also got some good coloring tips today. Over all the class was filled with good ideas and I especially LOVED the great close-ups from the camera man.

These collections are just amazing, thank you Emma Lou for all you teach and the techniques and creations made by your designers leave me breathless, I want to create each and every one of them, these boxes as to the previous boxes are just breathtaking. I'm so excited about the next collection. this is going to be my Christmas gift to me!!!! Can't wait to get started on this one taught today. Bravo and Congratulations on Baby Boy #2

What can I say except, another exceptional class! I have done several classes with Heartfelt, I usually watch the whole video then I re-watch and pause as I go. They provide wonderful materials and the video is a perfect addition in finishing your project. You will get hooked!

This is my fifth class, and I have loved every one of them. It is great to be able to watch them over and over and review various techniques. Emma Lou makes everything look so easy and gives you confidence to just jump in and try. I found it very helpful to see which border dies work together, taping as many as three in place. I loved the idea of making intricate borders by backing two matching dies together. The possibilities are endless. I am looking forward to the new eyelet die. Thank you

Wonderful class which highlighted many ways to use various dies. Emma Lou makes it all seem so easy & having all the prep work done ahead of time is the best suggestion of all. When trying to do a project at one setting it can get overwhelming to think of all that has to be done. The prep packages will make the project go so much faster. No matter what your crafting level, every class has something new to learn. Heartfelt Creations is my go to crafting store. Thank you.

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

Although I love Wisterias, I did not purchase the Cascading Petals Collection because it seemed like it would be very tedious and time consuming to make the Wisterias. Emma Lou made three beautiful cards during the class and she demonstrated that it is a lot easier and less time consuming than it looks. I feel confident that I could make them now. Thanks for a great class as always.

Andrea’s Sweet Pea class was truly amazing … She explained everything in detail & since I’m also an “Insider Member” I got to watch this class free & can enjoy it as many times as I like. I never dreamed there were so many ways to shape one flower. I LOVED this class so much I’m going to call customer service as soon as they open & see if I can gift a friend a month of being an Insider member so she can enjoy the class as much as I did. Great job Andrea !!!

wow- time just flew today. popped in a few minutes late but will catch up when I re-watch. I love that you are not rushed and take time to go over things for us and answer so many questions. The camera view allows us to view what you are doing so well. Amazing how many flowers you can create with this flower and love the molds - they have made such a difference in my roses. Thanks so much Emma Lou.

— Shirl Boughner
The class was wonderful. So many technique tips. And the encouragement on how it can take several times until getting something right where you want it. I did a lot of prep work, so actually completed the project that day. I love it so much I don't know if I'll give it away or keep this one and try to make more for others on my list. And the ability to go over the class as many times as we want is an added bonus. Of which I have already done for a couple spots to get a certain idea just right.
