The class was great. I wish the pre-class instructions had been more clear about cutting out the ovals and the critters/flora/fauna, as it was impossible to do the die cutting and keep up with the class. In the end, I just watched and now I have another UFO to work on :-) Good thing I love doing the albums! LOL!

What an informative class! I wasn't sure I would actually give this project a go, but I am so going to make a necklace! I just found Heartfelt Creations about 2 months ago, and I drooled over Emma Lou's necklaces. I was going to send an email to ask where she purchased her beautiful jewelry - until I saw the teaser for this class, and then I knew. Andrea is an excellent, talented teacher. Thank you, Heartfelt Creations, for always inspiring me with professional, high quality supplies and teachers.

This class was amazing. I have done paper crafting for awhile now, but this takes it to a completely new level. Thanks for sharing your techniques, it gives me hope. I certainly will spread the word to my paper crafting friends. Maybe I can get them to take your next class in September. I am looking forward to it. Thanks again, B. Lines

Loved the way the lacquer made the flowers strong and shiny. I intend to make a couple of brooches that I can wear on a cruise next fall. They will of course be smaller and fun to interchange on a day to day basis.

the elegant paper rose class was just what I needed to take me to the next level for my paper making. I just love Emma Lou! Thanks so much for offering these classes since it is easier than trying to take a class live since my work schedule doesn't usually permit the time.

Hello Emma and all behind the class people! Thank you again for your hard work. It was my first online class with you, although i took classes at shows. I did all pre-cutting from PDF, thinking what a good girl I am :) I thought I wwould finish all 15 plus cards within 2 hours! Ha-ha-ha. This pre cut papers were just the tips of the huge iceberg. (That what I didn't know about, so I will have days to enjoy.) As a teacher myself, I need to mention that the class was of great pace and packed with a lot of techniques and tips. It is really worth money we paid as we can watch and watch the class again.

Another amazing class! I always love Emma Lou's tips, but it's great to learn from the other crafters who participate, also! Every little tidbit makes my crafting easier and better. Even though I was writing lesson plans while I listened to the live class, I was able to pick up a few things, and I know I will learn more when I have the chance to craft while I watch. Thank you for all you do to make crafting easy and fun!

This tutorial like all the other was very informative and money well spent. From stamping , to cutting , to molding them into shape It was like you were right there At Emma Lou’s side. The colouring techniques are on point and she takes a lot of time explaining the stamens and how to shape your flowers into a work of art . Who knew you could make 8 different looking roses with just one set of stamps and dies. I love her color combinations and how she shows the different ways the flowers can be used . Just a whole lot of awesomeness , thank you .

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 a great class. You anticipate the questions so you don't have many to answer. Smooth transition from thought idea to idea. Thank you and hope you teach again. I also, can now make a peony. Wow!!

The class was amazing. It was easy to follow and very helpful. I have purchased 8 sets of the Flipfold Albums from online and Scrapbook Expo. Many times I have set down to start making one and just gave up because I couldn't figure out where to even start. I have made many mini albums from my own ideas and creations, but these are different. So many pieces to choose from and how to insert them. I actually get the process now and look forward to making my albums. Looking forward to August 1st!

I loved the decorating class! I am planning to use a different paper collection, probably Blushing Rose, because I'm not into fairies and cottages, but watching Emma Lou gave me the confidence to try decorating a flipfold album. I have bought several of your paper pads but never used them because they're too pretty to cut up! How silly is that, right? Well tonight they go under the chopping block, LOL. Wish me luck!

Loved the class This was my first on line class with Emma Lou. I am on vacation and passed up a standing Thursday golf date with hubby and friends to attend the class live. I am really looking forward to giving the project a try. I watched rather than played along. I have several family members in nursing homes and my best friend is having major surgery Monday. What a great little gift to let them know they are being thought of that will last, unlike real flowers. i love that she doesn't rush.

this was my first on-line class. I was a bit concerned about being able to follow along and finish the project, so as suggested I watched the video first. So glad I did! Because at age 70 I'm not always a "quick study". I think the pace is perfect for someone experienced in watching the on-line classes. Emma Lou did a wonderful job. Her explanations were clear and easy to follow. She appears to be a very patient and polite person. I look forward to the May Class.

This was only my 3rd online class, but first one I was able to watch "real" time. Emma Lou is an wonderful instructor. Easy to follow along. Good explaining on the details. I really appreciated the part where she explained the different types of ink you could use on the vellum. I personally, am not that knowledgeable with the different ink types, it was extremely helpful. Tks! I look fwd to taking more classes. Hope I will get to watch real-time again. I like the interaction with the other "students."

This was a fun and inspiring class. It was filled with tips and ideas which I am going to implement in my future projects. Emma Lou took all of the intimidating factors of delicate vellum and through them right out the window. She taught us it is doable and proved it with gorgeous results. If you would like to go confidently into deeper crafting waters take this class. You will be so glad you did. One word would sum it all up.... amaZing! I look forward to the next online class!!

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.

My vision is so-so, therefore, I can only watch on the big screen (no chat bar). Even so, I really enjoy the classes I've taken to date. I can hardly wait to get the Lush Lilac paper pad to begin using all the new tips and very helpful instructions from Emma Lou. She is such a great teacher. I look forward to taking more classes with her. :-)

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!

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!

Thought class was excellent. Took the Rose making class at Mega Meet in Novi, but it was first class, and I was newbie. I liked the color selection for rose, learning how many petals to use for flowers, how to use the stylist to shape the flower. Several tips: bud - stamping on outside, smaller stylist tip gives more wrinkled petals, how smart to color backs of petals, using sponge to apply glue for glittering.. Entire class was so helpful. I have already watched it three times !!!! THANK YOU

This one is pretty complex, but the ability to rewind and rewatch the session over and over is fabulous and gets me coming back and signing up for more classes. I’ve learned so much and feel like my skill level has improved in leaps and bounds. Looking forward to more learning opportunities. I wish I was able to watch live...but I love the format! Thank you DiAnn

These Tag Albums will make such nice gifts. I love that by using the tags the pictures can come out and be passed around if in a group. The tutorial explains each move to make and Emma Lou makes it easy to follow. The Heartfelt Creations Products are high quality and always make superb and beautiful creations. I recommend taking these classes to help get the most use out of your dies and stamps.

THIS CLASS WAS FABULOUS! I learned how to make foam flowers and how to attach them. I loved learning about the stamens and how to get them into the flowers. I can't wait to use the E flip fold for making albums. I have all the border dies. They looked great on the money folders and the albums. The info on the inks and the paint was very helpful. Can't wait for the stamens to come in. I have taken three classes and am signing up for the next one and any more you want to do. They are so informative.

Fabulous class as always. Your enthusiasm for the products and the crafting that goes into them is very catching and makes most of us Heartfelt Creation addicts. You have a very easy style and delivery which makes watching the online courses enjoyable. Long may it continue. x

Thank you for starting the on line classes. I would not be able to take any classes at shows. I followed along planning to go back and review as I work. I have had several of the album kits since they were first released and have pulled them out to just put them back in the closet. Emma Lou was so helpful and so clear about the steps to each insert. I have signed up for the August 1st class and cannot wait. Thank you again, Sheila

Emma Lou, I just wanted to say that I loved the class! I have watched it at home one other time and I like that I can stop it and then keep going. I found the class extremely helpful! Especially since I bought the products and they have set in my craft room because it seemed like it was going to take me forever to figure out how to use the flip folds. I am going to start working on my wedding album! its about time since I have been married 17 years this September and my mom birthday.

This was an awesome class as usual. I watched the class through and can't wait to make my card and roses. I love the roses and will practice, practice, practice! I had difficulty making the roses in the past, but now have the mold and the golf tools, so hopefully I can make some pretty ones.

Wow! So many ways to use the peony stamps and dies to get very different looks especially using stamens. Really appreciate how to get more bang for our bucks. It’s obvious that a lot of thought and planning go into the design of your first class products. Now if I could just craft all day long with so many ideas bouncing around.

Awesome class and I have learnt so much. I never knew how easy a mini album was to make using the pocket inserts. It's my first time at making a mini album and using flip folds but I love interactive albums. Now the fun begins! I also loved the Beginners Workshop for Elegant Flipfold Albums. I would love to see classes on decorating the first 2 albums made in this class. Thank you for sharing. Happy days

Thank you Emma Lou for another great class. I enjoy these so much. Best part is being able to go back and watch over and over again. I love that you show small errors and how to fix them. Can't wait for the next class. I find the more classes I take the better notes I take as I can think ahead more to making my flowers.

This was a marvelous class filled with new and old tips and tricks for making a superb necklace. The techniques will be applicable to many other projects too. I very much enjoyed the instructor's teaching style and am planning on making at least one necklace this week. I am immediately thinking of using roses especially as the sweet peony stamps and dies are currently out of stock.I really enjoyed seeing the use of the 3D Crystal Lacquer. It was very good to be shown just how to use it to coat the flowers.

Love the Heartfelt Creation classes. Great instructions, and you are able to ask questions as you learn. EmmaLou shows us new techniques in assembling, inking, and water coloring. Very helpful for beginners, and even a few AHHH- Haaa moments for long time crafters.
