The many different ways to use this stamp/die set was demonstrated in a very informative way, all were beautiful but the last 3 shown were really beautiful. The teal blue just stood out, the cactus flower color also was outstanding & so interesting, the tangelo flower would just pop out on a card. I really enjoyed this presentation & Emma Lou makes it so interesting in a down to earth way.

I loved all of this tutorial. I had seen Emma Lou wearing these necklaces and was curious as to how they we're made. I will for sure be making some of these. Thanks so much!!

The vellum flowers the easy way was a wonderful class. Andrea was so much fun to listen to and her instructions were so nice and clear for beginners or experienced crafters. I previously took her flower necklace class and made a beautiful necklace that turned out as pretty as Andrea’s. As usual Heartfelt gave us a nice gift of free stamens for taking the class. I have purchased many classes and have learned and enjoyed every one of them. Thank you all at Heartfelt for being such a wonderful company for us

Another great online class learning new tips and tricks. My favorite this time was seeing how to wrap some wire around the threaded stamens to help pull them through flower centers when adding them to the poppy flowers. Genius. Also appreciated Emma Lou’s perspective on the different ink types and colors used. Such a beautiful album project - kudos to Karan Gerber for a stunning design

Emma Lou...I just LOVE this class! The "belt" is amazing! Can't wait to start making this one! Watching you make the roses sure helped me again...I have seen you doing them before, but this time is just seemed to click! Thank you!

I give this class 5 hearts !! I thoroughly enjoyed it, I was crazy busy but was able to watch it a little at a time, then last evening I watched it all! So informative, I love having the PDF cutting files to reference. My only thought was its too bad that there wasn't a stand (like a recipe stand ) for the finished album to sit in while Emma Lou was teaching and we could see it as we are going along and it would be easier for her to reference without having to stop and grab the finished album. Great job!

This was my first online class with Heartfelt Creations and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I love that there is a detailed PDF included as I know this will be extremely helpful in the future. I also love that I can rewatch this class anytime. Emma Lou is a wonderful instructor, it is a joy to watch her. I frequently buy products and then never use them. Because of this class, I will be making beautiful albums. I can’t wait to get started and I look forward to taking other classes.

I have taken all of the online classes, and each one is amazingly different and I learn so many techniques for making beautiful "heartfelt creations". This class is overflowing with techniques for shaping such pretty carnations, and they all look different. I always learn something new!

Dear Emma Lou, Thank you so much for the most wonderful class yesterday. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Your explanations were thorough, easy to follow directions made me believe that I could do it too! The time went so fast and you were so gracious when there were some technical problems. I am still smiling. I can't wait to take another and roses are my very favorite flower. This was the best experience. Regards, Deborah

A wonderful class. I learned so much; working with vellum, stamens, hot glue and designing and shaping my flowers. I would not hesitate to recommend this class to anyone. Didn't think I could do this project, but now I think I could (of course after watching the video a couple more times). You made it look so easy, thank you!

I only found your company a few months ago and now I am addicted to your products. I have taken several of your classes. I learned so much from each one of them. This class was fantastic. It was so inspirational. I found ideas for several Christmas gifts and cards. Most of all I enjoyed the new coloring techniques. I have not tried these markers and now they are a must have. Thanks so much for taking the time to show us how to do this. So much fun. I am looking just waiting for the next class.

This is the 5th class I have watched. These classes are so informative and I learn several new techniques every time. I have totally learned to not be hard on myself and be patient . Practice practice practice makes close to perfect. Emma Lou is a wonderful teacher and I will continue to watch all the classes. Who would of thought you can make 8 different flowers with the tulip stamp and die. Thank you

This class was so much fun and as always, I learned so much that I couldn't learn elsewhere. And sharing with my cohorts on line was energizing. I always wish there was some way for all of us to be in the actual same room, and see faces, and share smiles. Money allowing, I will take every class available because I feel like I'm part of something great! Jeannie

Thank you for such a great class. I have several albums and “tons” of inserts but have never been able to put it all together for a finished project. With your help and the ability to go back and watch with the pause button is a valuable benefit. Looking forward to August 1st for the next class.

This was my very first class and I am so wowed by you. I was able to follow along with the rose bud and dogwood during class. I Love love love the dogwood. My first one actually came out amazing. The rose bud wasn't bad but with making more and more it will be there before to long. Thank you for sharing all your tips and techniques. You are an excellent teacher and I look forward to add more Heartfelt Creations products to make more beautiful cards and altered art.

A very enlightening class in many ways. Emma Lou is amazing in that she can work on a project and watch and answer questions at the same time. She has wonderful tips and tricks for sticky problems that crop up when I am working and wondering just how to get around them. Her relaxed style makes it easy to ask questions and be assured of an answer. I could use more info on using stamp paints and colouring in general. I may still be too heavy handed with the sponge daubers. Wonderful way to spend an afternoon.

So glad I registered for this class. As a beginner I learnt a great deal and it was very inspiring. My confidence to proceed with the insta album has increased immensely. Clear instructions, very helpful especially with the tips, the magnet placements and added tips on how to recover from any errors made along the way. Thank you so much! Blessings, Linda

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.

Andrea did a WONDERFUL job, I thought her pace was just right--easy for us to follow plus she answered our questions as we went along. To me, this is one of the best reasons to take these online courses is to be able to ask MY questions and to have the instructor answer them, plus I learn a lot from the questions of others. I loved all of her attention to details and she explained WHY too. My hope is that Andrea will be teaching more floral jewelry online classes, please?! I'd give her an A+++++!

I have to admit that I was skeptical about doing an online class as I wasn't sure that you would really be able to get a personal feel for the class but I was so impressed by Emma Lou. Her ability to teach at a pace that everyone could follow along and make everyone feel as though they were the only ones in the class. I love her personality and seeing how much she has grown and I love that she's a real person who genuinely seems to care about her customers wants and needs. Can't wait for the next class.

The classes just keep taking creativity to a higher level. Loved seeing the testing of different inks on the vellum, the use of the Oxides and the microfiber cloth is genious! I think we need microfiber blending tools! Who knew? I've taken every class so far - off to sign up for September and then continue shopping:-) Can we add more than 5 rating hearts?

Love the directions. It would be helpful to have pictures of the finished projects in the handout to be able to look at when creating the project. Sometimes you do not want to continue to replay the video to find the picture to reference when making a project.

It was another wonderful, informative class. Emma Lou's instructions are detailed. She makes learning easy. I really enjoyed learning how to put the E inserts together to make a larger folder. And the vellum flower were to die for. Everything was so pretty and looked so elegant together. Thanks for this and all the classes.

This class was an absolute delight. I listened all the way and then sat down to work. It turned out beautiful. Not perfect, but really pretty. I shall make a couple more tomorrow and let my fantasy take over. Thank you Emma Lou for doing such an excellent job i teaching. I thoroughly enjoyed myself, but not only that - I also learned a lot. That was money well spent. Thank you .

Thank you so much for sharing your talent. Loved the class and will for sure be taking more. I didn't know that you blessed others as you do from your proceeds and that has spoken volumes to me. My dear friend and I have almost all you products and will continue purchasing as you create. We have had the opportunity to purchase from Benjamin at the Phoenix shows and and have totally enjoyed his service to us. Thank you to all of you at Heartfelt who have made our crafting so enjoyable. Blessings to all

I think Andrea was very calm and knew what she was doing. I enjoyed watching the class very much and will be making one of these necklaces as soon as I have some time. I will also be signing up for the vellum class. It is one of my favorite looks but do need more help.

Thank you so much, Emma Lou, for the fabulous 8x8 Insta Album online class! You are an amazing presenter, with very clear and precise instructions and guidance. I was so impressed with the instruction sheet before the class with all of the placements for cutting the papers - it took away all the fear of exactly where to cut each piece. This was my second class and would highly recommend these classes that give hints and tips to creating our own works of art! I love all that Heartfelt Creations stands for.
