This class was AMAZING!!!! I have taken several classes and love them all. These boxes are simply beautiful; I can't wait to give these to family and friends. After watching so many of Emma Lou's classes, I didn't think that anyone could take her place as an instructor. I was wrong, Andrea is just as amazing!!! I can't wait for the next class.

I wasn't sure whether I would like creating with foam. Andrea made it look so easy. It gave me the confidence to to give it a try. I was surprised at how easily she was able to shape the classic rose bud with the foam paper. Thanks for all of the tips. Great class as always.

I love taking your classes, you get so much information from them. If you need to go back and look at something you can as many times as you like. I have taken classes at the Expos and they are good but I like the recorded ones so I can go back and get more information out of them. This classes has made making the albums so easy. Thank you, Bernice G

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.

Andrea did an incredible job of teaching this class! I thoroughly enjoyed it even though I couldn’t watch it live because we were traveling I was able to catch it later that day. I love her creative design and style - this jewelry is a great utilization of our products. I plan to make the smaller multi rose necklace she showed us at the end - it is more my kinda thing. I hope you will feature a lot more online classes with Andrea in the future!

I learned so much in this class. It was just like being there. I am finishing my album now where before j just looked at the inserts and wondered how to use them. I work weekends so I'm unable to attend classes and this works so well for me. Cant wait to sign up for another one! Thank you so much! Donna Anderson

Loved the class. This was my first time taking a class (I'm usually working but off for the holidays). Very interactive and informative. Mary Lou and her helpers are checking the comments all throughout the class so questions are answered quickly. Plus, the tips, tools and techniques shared are great and makes the project seem like something even a novice could do. I will definitely sign up for more.

I have been wanting to make a larger album and this album is just what I wanted. The embellishments have become absolutely amazing, I wanted to learn to use them, now I do thanks to this class. The other thing, how can I not sign up when I receive a 15.00 coupon and you always give us a surprise. This class ended up to be free with your gift of a paper pad. Thank you. I am looking forward to the next class.

Loved seeing the different techniques on the Wild Rose Collection, all were beautiful, but loved the first set colors, but then each set was just as pretty. Will be watching this class again as working on this set at the present time, & have not decided which way I will be doing the roses. Again another great class.

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.

It is amazing how many different ways to make flowers with the same sets. I also learned why some of my flowers flatten out and how to make them stay closed up for the bud look. Thank you

Wonderful class presentation that exceeded my expectations - 2 hours flew by very quickly. We covered design elements from basic to intricate detail in flower shaping using the camellia carnations. Great instruction and communication by Emma Lou - such a talented, gracious and inspirational person that motivates us all to make beautiful projects!

I loved the sizing chart you used. In the past when I have made roses, I never was sure how many of each size petal to use so I just winged it and they did turn out okay but now I have something that I can follow now. Thanks for another great class. Keep up the good work!

I've had a bunch of the dies and stamps for a long time, then I watched one where you did the classic rose - last weekend I made 4 roses with classic rose don't look to bad, I need to work on coloring evenly - I made scrapbook from Shelly Giegle (spelled wrong) using the Aster paper and flowers - I am not a fan the aster's I made, so I wanted an expert to show me some tips just on shaping flowers, I do have the wild rose - I tried to make a classic rose with it and it didn't work so well. so I need to practice some more! I had to work when the class was going on - so I could only watch the re-run. Thank you!

I thoroughly enjoyed my first Online Class with Heartfelt Creations! I have taken many of their fabulous live classes at scrapbooking conventions, but it was fun to be relaxed at home and enjoy Emma Lou's ever-sweet personality as she facilitated the course. I did not complete the full projects live but instead used the live class as a learning opportunity. I love that I can now go back and replay the course video, working at my own pace. I will absolutely be taking future HFC online classes!

Hi Emma, I thoroughly enjoyed tour online class yesterday on flipfold albums. I cant wait for the class to decorate one of the albums. Thank you also for the $15 off and the freepad of paper. It really helps to have these discounts. I have enjoyed your collections and now can't wait to tackle a flipfold album. I made one of the large waterfall inserts as a wedding keepsake for the bride and groom. Again thank you so much for taking your precious time to teach the online class.

Many kudos to the designer of this album. To be able to take a few pieces of paper and make this awesome album is amazing. Theresa was great at explaining how to put it all together and add the beautiful accents.

Wow! This is the first class I've taken and I am so impressed with all the things covered in this class. I didn't realize we would make 3 cards (so fun!) but in addition to that Emma Lou taught lots of different techniques for creating flowers and using stamens. I really loved the way she showed how to make the hydrangeas and the 3D lilacs. I've been wondering how that is done. Now I can create lots of lots of my own. The Lush Lilac is my favorite collection. Thank you, Emma Lou.

I absolutely loved loved this class. It is so amazing with what you can do with all the flowers from heartfelt. I can wait to get started on a necklace and matching earrings. The thing I love the most about this video is the step by step it was not to fast you could easily fallow along. .I like that you can go back as many time and watch it after you purchased it. I absolutely love that you can design jewelry to match what were your wearing rather the color or the type flower. Thanks Heartfelt, Jeannie

Emma Lou, the class was great and I learned so much. Can't wait to rewatch the video and begin working on my book. I love the way your mom came up with this creative idea for flip folds. I have made one from scratch before and it was horrible. It took me forever. At least now it will not be as hard as making the book and flip outs from scratch. I am so looking forward to the August 1 class. I hope you have many more online classes. You are an excellent teacher and great at what you do.

I always enjoy taking one of Emma Lou's classes. She is such a good and patient teacher. I always learn something new in every class that I have taken from her. In this class I especially enjoyed seeing some new coloring techniques as well as stamping and coloring on vellum. I would definitely recommend Heartfelt Creations to my friends. Thanks Emma Lou!

— Barbara Gully
Loved this class. Andrea is an excellent instructor and patiently answered questions. Looking forward to rewatching many times so that I can craft and ‘pause’ as needed, but Andrea made creating these flowers and working with the vellum look so easy. One of the new things I learned was that when working with vellum in the flower shaping molds, DO NOT MIST THEM WITH WATER! Looking forward to the next class!

What a great class! I have had these dies since they came out on your 1st black Friday live stream. I have used them, but not as much as I want to. Now that I have these very helpful tips, I am for sure going to be adding their beautiful touches to everything. this is my 2nd on line class and I was not disappointed. I loved it and can't wait for the pocket & tag mini album. My AHA moment was watching how you made the Butterfly and the Sleigh so layered. You are so a talented. Thank You for sharing.

Loved the class. I wasn’t able to watch all of it live but am able to go back and continue where I had left off. That is what I love about the classes and it is such a great resource to have. The interaction is fun, it’s Great to be able to ask questions and hear from the others taking the class as well. I am looking forward to the next class.

This was my first class and let me say that it was very informative and the completed flowers were gorgeous. The difference between Emma Lou's short videos and her classes are extreme. The class goes into more depth on making flowers and I learned so many little tips and tricks on making flowers; it was amazing. Thank you!
