Loved the class!!!! So informative and fun and Emma Lou did a great job explaining how to create a beautiful album and how to utilize the pocket dies which I haven't used mine as yet but I already purchased the album, dies and magnets so now to find the time to get this project going! Thank you Hearfelt for such awesome products and great classes!

Loved Emma Lou's Lush Lilacs and Hydrangeas class. Her classes are so much fun to attend live and then be able to go back and watch as many times as you'd like. I always learn a lot and laugh a lot. I've never been disappointed in a class.

This was a perfect class to learn more on shaping beautiful vellum flowers. Andrea did a wonderful job at giving step by step directions. I especially appreciated the multiple times showing us how to shape the flowers. Heartfelt Creations always makes it look so easy to create beautiful altered art with their products. Thanks Andrea and Heartfelt Creations. You inspired me again!!!

This was a wonderful class. I never thought of coloring poinsettias any color other than red or pink. I learned so many tips for shaping flowers. Can't wait until the next class.

I really enjoyed this class it took away the mystery on how to use these inserts. I had bought them a few months ago but was intimidated on how to use them. The class was very relaxed and Emma Lou made it look so easy to accomplish a stunning album I am sure I will be signing up for the next class. I like the fact that you can come back and watch it again at your leisure and not feel that you have to accomplish 3 albums in just 2 hours. It honestly didn't feel like 2 hours. Thanks again for a lovely class.

Wonderful class. It's always a treat to see new tools used. Use of the stamens and flower shaping and layering were clearly explained and easy to follow. I always love seeing the color combining. I have taken them all, always learn something and I can't wait for the next. Thank you Emma Lou and huge thank you to the entire H/F team-family.

I love Heartfelt's online classes, and this class was no exception! Emma Lou shared some really creative ideas for coloring and shaping the petunias, and it was great to be able to see how to actually fill a pot with flowers and make a beautiful bouquet. I feel like I can take what I've learned and build most any kind of bouquet I want using other Heartfelt Creations flowers and dies. I think I will try a poinsettia bouquet soon. Thanks again for a great class!

I loved the shaping techniques shown on the large purple flowers. I haven't tried the scrunching technique yet but am now encouraged to do so. I am hoping that I will be able to take the next class but I am not sure as I am going in for open heart surgery on Feb 21st. I am not sure when I will get out of hospital or whether I will be up to taking the class but I will register for it so I can watch it when I am feeling okay again. I love your company for its creativity, innovation and helpfulness. Take care

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.

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.

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!!

Each class has inspired and helped me. This class offered so many ideas for scrap booking yet opened ideas to incorporate with my card making.. Working with beautiful paper, new and exciting ideas, can only help me to enjoy a hobby, better yet, a passion, I love . I can't be more grateful to the Heartfelt Family. Sat back, took notes, and I did my homework so this weekend I will complete my album. Then, I want to do a few more. Any suggestions for other paper collections, maybe a mix and match?

Wow, really enjoyed the class. Not thought of some of the ideas. Really enjoyed the portion on the foam. I had put my packet of foam up because I didn’t know what to do with it. That is going to make some awesome sunflowers, too. Thanks.

This was an amazing class, I learned so much. I always question what colours I should put on the flowers, so this gave me some combinations to try. This was the third class I have taken and enjoyed it very much. I will definitely sign up for another class in the future.

Thoroughly enjoyed the class. It reinforced the techniques that I have been working on. I am very impressed with what professional looks you can get using the shaping forms and what a help they are in speeding up the process when making the flowers. It's all in the detail and Emma Lou is a great teacher. Cudos galore!!

This class was my first online class with HC--I was extremely happy with all that I learned. Emma-Lou went out of her way to answer our questions and it was evident that she truly cared that we all understood what she was teaching us. I now understand the great benefit of taking a 2-hour class because there is time for Emma-Lou to go into much more depth in techniques, just what I wanted and needed! I will be taking MANY classes in the future, what a FANTASTIC experience, SO worth the class price!!!

This was my first online class and I really enjoyed it. Emma Lou and the Heartfelt crew are so inviting, informative and encouraging. The instructions were delivered in a warm, friendly manner allowing for beginners to experienced crafter's skills. It felt like a cozy gathering with your good friends where you all got to learn fun new things. Thank you! I'm looking forward to taking more classes, now.

Thank you Emma Lou for the great class today - Vellum Flower and Mini Album. I learned so much and you make it so much fun. My sixth on-line class! Thanks for the incentives that come with the class.

What a fantastic class this was! Your explanations are so easy to follow along and I feel so much more confident now in doing my 8X8 album. I enjoyed seeing the different ways to use the tags and dies. Taking these classes also give me ideas on how to uses these in my card making. Thank you for this wonderful and informative class and will be looking forward to taking many more.

This new necklace class was wonderful. Andrea is an excellent teacher. She speaks very clear and goes at a steady pace that is easy to follow. She is very generous with her special tips to make things easier and her attention to detail is perfect. I would be very excited to see more classes from her in the future. She is an excellent addition to the Heartfelt Creations team. Can't wait for Emma Lou's new class next month.

I have always stayed away from making mini albums...they looked so difficult...That was until I took the Mini Album Class...Emma Lou made it so easy to follow and understand...thanks you....now I have a new avenue to go down.

I thoroughly enjoyed the class. Honestly, I've watched a number of the free videos and wasn't sure I'd learn anything new. But of course I did!!! Thank you so much for your cheerful presentation and beautiful examples. I thought the classic roses would be my go-to favorite; but I think now that the carnations might be the one. I'm so glad I bought the sets and have already given a good friend a birthday card with the carnations on it.

I really like that I can go see the class again (1) I can't absorb it all the first time (2) I had several interruptions I could be cool about and jus go with the flow. Emma Lou is very calm in a couple of disruptive occurrences. The lesson was beautiful and helpful.

Great class...it's amazing how I learn something new from each class...I've taken them all. Initially I wasn't going to sign up for this class....I thought I had seen it all but it was amazing what I learned...don't know how you do it but each class is fresh and offers something new.....thank you so much. Heartfelt is my favorite crafting company...I am very happy with every purchase and the customer service is outstanding...keep up the good work. Have a very Merry Christmas! See you next year! Joanne

This was a great class for learning how to make a beautiful mini album. You can take the tips and trick learned from this class and go on to make your own mini album with your own spin on it using whatever paper collection and flowers you choose. Time well spent - and always fun learning with Emma Lou!

Thank you for the flipfold online class! This is exactly what I needed to give me the confidence to start using your wonderful products. I had to smile at the reinforcement that it doesn't have to be PERFECT - it's an opportunity to be CREATIVE.

This has been a amazing and fantastic class. It was great seeing new ways to work with the vellum paper and the Oxide inks, the glitter technique and especially tips are an easier way of adding the stamen. Emma Lou makes you believe that you can create beautiful flowers! This is my favorite class to date.

I’ve taken every online class and I’ve never been disappointed! I would encourage those that are hesitant, to try one! Emma Lou is very detailed in her instructions and gives you alternative choices along the way. The best part is that you can replay the class as you you work on your project . If you take the class before the deadline, you can apply half of the cost of the class to your new purchases! Now that’s a SMART DEAL!!!

I really enjoyed this class! What a wonderful way to use our Heartfelt products in a creatively different and beautiful way. I now have so many ideas I can’t wait to get started. Andrea is such a wonderful instructor, I hope to see her again soon with more of her amazing creations. Thank you for offering us these on-line classes as it is difficult for some of us to make it to the shows, please keep them coming!

This class was AAAAA++. This class has taken my Carnation making to the next level. It was so helpful to see several different techniques to use with just one flower die to get different looks. I will now be using stamens in all my flowers - it adds such a nice touch. I thought the class was well paced and the video was perfect with no dead spots or spinning circles. The camera angles were perfect making it easy to follow along.

I, too, am a seasoned crafter, stamper, scrapbooker, and this was my first HC online class. I was blown away with the details provided, presented so personably as if we were chatting at a retreat! I didn’t know to take notes during the live cast and play later but that was a great idea! Can’t wait to finish my album. Oh no - another all-nighter coming up!

Thank you for showing how to put the roses together. My roses need more practice for sure. I am more confident that I will improve with your encouragement.
