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.

I loved the class and all of the great tips. Of course I missed Emma Lou, but Andrea did a great job. I especially love the tips for creating the vellum flowers, but I also learned a lot about placing all of the flowers on the project.

All of Emma Lou’s classes are awesome. She is so much fun to watch and listen to. She shows you many techniques for the project you will create and she always gives tips of what to do if something goes wrong. I always learn from her classes.

What a lot of fun! Being a visual learner, I really appreciate being able to watch Emma Lou creating beautiful things. In this case a lovely floral umbrella. This project will be a gift for my daughter's May birthday. I know she will love it!

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.

An amazing way to enjoy creating a new project, learning new techniques, interacting with creators from all over the world and doing it at your pace, your way. It is a scrapbook convention class with a glass of wine. It is an easy pace and you receive so much value for the cost, ultimately making the class free. Emma and her team are so professional and yet relaxed, a friend coming into your home to teach you. Love being able to live text and receive her cheerful responses.

When I first saw this beautiful flowering umbrella project, I thought it would be too difficult to make, but after Emma Lou broke it all down, I thought I would definitely give it a go. The step-by-step explanation and demonstration was so informative and Emma Lou is a perfect instructor! I can’t wait to see how my project turns out!

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 loved this class. you were so through showing us how to cut, color and assembles these albums / cards. This is the best way to learn. Emma Lou, your Company is the first one that I have ordered from that really takes an interest in the costumers... What they make, what they think, where they are and loves to see what everyone makes. I want to Thank you and your family and workers for all the wonderful collections you have. Thank you and God Bless ,

I am so very glad I decided to take this class. I didn't even buy the tulip stamp and die set until I saw this class offered, because I really am not crazy about tulips. This class helped me to really appreciate the beauty of the tulip. It was an amazing class that offered countless tips for us crafters. I especially loved the way Emma demonstrated countless ways to use the golf tool. The tech team was great in fixing the glitch in a timely fashion. Kudos to them!!! Heartfelt Creations as always is at the top of my list for supporting the customer with their user friendly products and all the information they put out there for us to use them after we purchase them. Thank you for another great class.

I love all of your classes. I have taken several and I have learned so much. I have never been into crafting until I took your classes. I made the mini flip fold album for my mothers 90th surprise birthday party and everyone loved it. I could not have done it without your class. I can't wait to start making the flowers that you just taught me.

Stop reading this review, go back rand click the Enroll button! Emma Lou gives perfect step-by-step instructions on making the album and then shows us how to create beautifully colored and embossed Vellum flowers. I loved the glitter step Emma Lou showed us at the end. One tip that I can add is when you are using your heat gun, don't accidentally aim it at the catch tray holding your loose glitter. Don't ask me how I know! Wonderful class, lots of new techniques to use in all your crafting.

This was my second class and I thoroughly enjoy watching. I will be making my album this weekend. The handout with all the measurements is a great addition to the class. Makes it so easy to follow along! I agree with other who said an intricate die class would be great!! Thank you for caring so much to help us make pretty stuff!!!

I really enjoyed watching the class. I was hesitant at first to sign up for this class because I know how to make boxes. But I didn't know how to make them Heartfelt style...They were stunning and I can't wait to get home to make them. Thank you!

This was my first online class with Emma Lou! I'm totally hooked. Your clear and easy explanation plus showing what you are doing makes the construction of these projects so much easier to make. I have been a longtime customer of Heartfelt Creations, and will continue to be for many more years! Thank you again for such a fun, inspirational class.

I enjoyed the class and was glad that for once, I was able to watch it live! I am especially happy, though, that you make the video available for us to refer back to in the future. I look forward to watching the next class on decorating the pages. I'm thinking there may be several cases where you might want to at least cover the base page or the inserts before attaching. I think the best tip given in class was creative ways to trim off tabs and use the inserts more than one way.

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.

Another Great class from Emma Lou and the HC team. I learn so much at these classes, and get so many wonderful tips and shortcuts to making the beautiful flowers. The fact that it is live is great too. Not only do I learn from Emma Lou, but I also get ideas from all the other people watching the class too. The classes from Heartfelt Creations are sooo worth the money, and really don't cost a thing with all the extras you get. I am so hooked. I can't wait for the next one.

Emma Lou, epxlqins things so they are easy to follow. I learned some new tips on cutting paper for my pages that can be used in other albums. I followed along while she made the album and am going to make one. What the nice thing is once you paid for the class it stays forever and you can back and use it as a reference. Great job Emma Lou.

I bought all the inserts and albums that were available almost as soon as they came out. They have sat on my shelf since. I have add to the stack of inserts as they came out as well. After taking the class I am so excited and can't wait to get started on them. Thank you so much Emma Lou for taking the time to do an online class. Thanks Carol B

This was my first on-line class and I thoroughly enjoyed it! I can definitely see the value in all of the information provided by actually attending a class. I've watched many tutorials and have always found them very helpful. But the additional detail provided through the class is extremely helpful, and the fact that I can re-watch the class over and over is definitely an added bonus! Emma Lou is an excellent teacher and I plan to attend more classes in the future.

Andrea, Loved your class. You are a natural at not only instructing others but also keeping up with all the questions. Hope to make some jewelry soon. I can't wait for Scrapbook Expo in Duluth, GA and the classes there. I am taking 3 of them. Will definitely come by and see you at the booth. Happy 4th of July to you and all the Heartfelt family. Thanks again for a great class. Stephanie

I loved the lilac class! I even had all my homework done and wanted to do the cards with you, but I think I like just watching the first time so I can see the comments and your work. I just finished all three cards and they are gorgeous. Thank you so much for sharing all your tips. I can’t wait to sign up for the next class. Stephanie

Not only was the slider card beautiful and creative, and the roses stunning, but your hearts to help the needy give new depth of meaning to your name Heartfelt Creations. No wonder I love all that you do! God bless and keep you all!

Love learning how to make the necklaces. I know how to make flowers and the necklace gives us an other use for the flowers. I used to spend a lot of money on ready made flowers and since discovering Heartfelt Creations 4 years ago I make all my own flowers now and can make in any colour that I want. I save money by making my own flowers. Andrea’s class was excellent. She is a wonderful teacher.

This was my first online class and was extremely impressed by the amount of information that you put into 2 hours. I love that I can go back and re-watch it at any time and pause when needed. There was SOOOO much information that it will take a few times for me to absorb it all... This was so fun... It may have been my first class.. but it definitely wont be my last. Thank you for a fabulous after of crafting!!!!

I ABSOLUTELY love these online classes. I have taken many classroom classes from Heartfelt Creations at Expo's. I love the classroom, however the online classes show in more detail how to use different techniques, options and discussion to accomplish the same outcome. Also, the questions that are asked and answered are helpful (I may have been thinking the same thing). I really hope these continue!
