I simply love this item and the class was so much fun! My two friends and I started a few days ahead thinking we would be really prepared to keep up with you. We soon discovered that was not going to happen. :) This class taught me so many different things such as how to mold and shape flowers,how to use daubers properly, making delicate stamens, and so much more. Thank you so much for sharing your talent and love for crafting. We enjoyed doing this class with you.

I love the online classes because they give you a chance to ask questions and see the projects and how they are made versus just reading the directions and trying to figure out what they mean in the blogs. And the other people joining the classes provide good tips and techniques of their own which are very clever and helpful as well. This particular class on the Window Dies with Circle Fold Cards was great in showing the versatility of the dies and how you can mix and match them all to get so many beautiful and elegant cards. Definitely worth the time and money!

This was my second class and I just loved it! I learned so many ways to use the new tag items along with the beautiful Oakberry Lane flowers and paper collection. I missed the end of the presentation, but have already watched the recording to see the album finished. Coloring techniques were great as well. Another amazing class. Thanks Emma Lou & Heartfelt Creations!

Loved the class. Would have hesitated to do the album on my own but now after the class I am looking forward to doing several albums in the near future. This project is perfect for all levels of crafter. Really enjoyed adding all the little touches. Thank you Emma Lou for another great class. Can't wait for the next one,

Andrea did a great job. I don’t get to watch live because I am in Australia. And I wouldn’t need too really because I have been making cards for a long time. But I always pick up something and I enjoy the classes it is fun doing them.

Thank you so much for this class. The pdf file was excellent. I did not follow along for this class however i did take notes and of course I will watch the video again as I make my album. I live in the country and my internet service is not the greatest so I was concerned about how much of my allowance I would use during the live stream. To my surprise it was not much, only about 6 %. What a great class! Can not wait for the Christmas class. Have a blessed day and thank you again.

I really enjoyed your class. You explained cutting and placing very clearly. I am just waiting for my order to arrive and I will add the inserts and then decorate. You have made me excited about crafting again - I came home from our vacation and was in a "Okay. What am I going to do now?" mood! My hubby suggested I sign up for the roses class. I'll certainly look into it! Thanks again for the great class!

Amazing class!! So many ways to use the Decorative Border Die Sets; shows their versatility and what a great value they are! I can't wait to order the ones I don't have yet and start playing with them! Thanks again Emma Lou for a wonderful class that I can watch and use over and over again!

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

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

Each class has added techniques to my repertoire. I have taken the classes and made the different albums. As gifts, they are appreciated and loved by those who receive them. I can't wait to make this one and see the smiles when I gift it. Thank you for making me look good!! Thank you also for the Zig coloring techniques. What a difference it makes using the water color brush rather than straight application. I am looking forward to the next class. These classes are always five star!!

Just finished re-watching your class and am so thrilled with the online class! I can watch it as many times as I need to and truly get my money's worth! This is so great as I can pause to do work, then continue, rewind for anything I did not quite catch and really focus on competing my project! This is not a once and done class, you have made Ms. Emma my personal on-demand teacher! Thank you from those of us who may not always be able to catch a live class, and those of us who may need a bit more help! ;-)

Thank you Emma Lou for unselfishly sharing your creative gift online today. The end result of the Woodsy Wonderland oval mini album was simply magical and I just wanted to step right into the sparkly scene and play with all of those cute animals. I love Heartfelt Creations and when I found your webpage I felt like I'd found my second home. Your papers, stamps and dies are the best ever!

Emma Lou, you've done it again...a class absolutely chock full of techniques, how-to's, and inspiration. How many cards did you ultimately demo? 15? 16? Then that sweet gift box and #10 sized card. I bought the Black Friday special and when I received them, I was a bit overwhelmed by all the pieces that came in each set. But watching you demo how to use them and interchange the die pieces among the sets made it look not only doable but easy. My brain is humming and I've already signed up for your next class. Thank you so very much.

It was a great class. It was inspiring to see the examples and how to make our own projects!

— Sandra Crepps
Great class. Always like learning new techniques and ways to improve my crafting skills. Ways to strengthen border trims was helpful. Using 4 layers of paper to strengthen the album cover was informative, however, I think I prefer using chipboard as it is stronger and I learned a way to make the entire album cover using chipboard and paper from Katie at Katie's World. It would be helpful if you e-mail the PDF for the class sooner so students would have time to prepare for the class.

This was my first ever online class and even though I fell asleep at the end (I am in Australia and it was in the early hours of the morning) I found it very interesting. The things you can do with a die just amazed me and has helped me to venture outside the box when it comes to dies. I just loved the tips on the roses and can't wait to try. I did find it hard to concentrate at work as I just wanted to go home and make my baskets and rose arrangements. Thank you Emma Lou and your team for a great video.

I had a blast creating something for my home! The first nativity shadow box I did I am going to give it to my pastor wife who collects nativity sets. I know she will love! I created this one myself! I learned I can do more than I think I can. I learned manytips one about the glittering a new way for me I can use int the future! Thank-you so much!

I wasn't able to attend the live class this time due to a dental appointment. I just completed watching Emma Lou's video and she made the card seem easy. Magic! The rose is the first set of flowers that I bought from you quite some time ago. I have never used it and Emma Lou's demonstration makes them look pretty easy. This is a beautiful project, but didn't have as many pockets as I expected. I did the March class and it wasn't quite right either, but I'm thinking that the birdhouse might work.

I loved this class! Can't wait to put the new gateway dies to good use! Emma Lou is a fabulous teacher! She must have nerves of steel!! Teaching, talking, answering questions! That's a lot to deal with in 2 1/2 hours! The class was very helpful. Thank you so much!!

I am so glad that I did not miss this class. I have done these cards but no matter, you ALWAYS learn something new. I happened to have all my colored pencils out the other day when I was majorly cleaning my studio and ended up putting them back because I never knew how to use them correctly. Well, today I learned a lot! So after the class, out they came and I now have new "toys"! Ha!!! I can't wait to see what I can learn next time! Thank you Emma Lou

Andrea did an excellent job with this class. The pace was perfect to be able to follow. I am not a scrapbooker, and I'm trying to get as many training sessions as possible before I dig in. I just might be ready.

This was my first on-line class. I was impressed by all the step by step instructions, and the tips and tricks for adding embellishments. I'm so grateful to the Heartfelt Team for sharing their craft, inspiration, and knowledge with users so that we can become better crafters as well. I used to think I could never make beautiful projects like this, but I can!!! Thank you for your online classes that show me how.

This is my first on-line class, but it will definitely NOT be my last. I am fairly proficient with Heartfelt products, but I learned some new techniques. It was helpful to see a master show me how to use the products and this will refine my crafting. I have soooo many of the Heartfelt products that I could open up my own store! Ha ha Can't wait to see what is coming!!!

Thank you Emma Lou for an amazing class. I can't wait to get started on the book. I'm planning on making this for my grandson and his fiance as a wedding gift as they are getting married next June. I have taken a number of classes and learn so much from each one. Thank you also to all your staff who work so hard to bring us these wonderful classes.

I really enjoyed today's class. I signed up for the class to see the products in "action." I wanted to see the products used together to complete a finished mini album. I am a visual learner to watching a live class helped me vs reading an instruction list. In the class, I was able to see how easy it is to shape borders and assemble a mini album. I liked receiving the "homework" so I know what sizes to cut. I am glad you explained the difference between Memento and Stazs on ink. This helped my Confidence.

Loved the class, so glad I signed up. Emma Lou you were fantastic, so calm, when things went wrong. I'm sure it helped us all feel better that we all have things go wrong when we craft. PDF was great, made it so simple to cut out all the paper needed to decorate the book. Would love one that is similar for the other 2 books from the first class. Looking forward to taking the next one. Love you guys
