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.

What a great class! I have had these dies since they came out on your 1st black Friday live stream. I have used them, but not as much as I want to. Now that I have these very helpful tips, I am for sure going to be adding their beautiful touches to everything. this is my 2nd on line class and I was not disappointed. I loved it and can't wait for the pocket & tag mini album. My AHA moment was watching how you made the Butterfly and the Sleigh so layered. You are so a talented. Thank You for sharing.

Great class! I haven't done an album before and thought this would be a good one to start with. I thik this would be a great album for Xmas. Love all the finishing touches, the pop-up frames and different die techniques. Andrea did such a great job! I enjoy her videos and learn alot from them. I do think that I would like a better PDF. Other than that, the class was very informative and will help me learn more techniques!

Emma Lou I just love your upbeat and enthusiasm. You make learning so much fun. This almost two and a half hours went by so fast showing so many much needed tips. You remind me not to be discouraged when my roses and flowers do not have your professional touch. You encourage me to practice, practice and practice. I'm extremely grateful for your classes, especially this one because I now feel confident enough to try my hand in making these lovely basket, boxes and gorgeous Roses. Thank you, and Tracy and Kathy and all involved in making these exceptional live videos. P.S. Zander gets 5 hearts on a scale of 1 to 5 from me. I just Love seeing that cutie. Also I like your mommy stories, they bring lots of memories to this mom / grandma.

I loved this class, it was not as difficult as I thought it would be, just time consuming. What a lovely decorative piece for my home and a fantastic gift. I also want to do one with the wedding paper for a bridal shower. Thank you so much for taking the tine to teach us new ways to use our dies and paper. I am one of those people that needs to see to do. I love your videos, such a help. The next class looks beautiful, can't wait and I would love to do more decorative pieces,

Emma Lou, of course I LOVED the class! So great!!!!!!!!! Thank you for showing how to use the dies in such a creative way (I would never have thought of doing it). I am excited for creating the boxes and again not have thought of how to make them unless I really worked on doing it but the class makes it so easy as you did all the hard work for measurements and added how to embellish in such a wonderful way. I bought the Elegant Sentiments and these boxes will be such a great way to use them. Thank you for such a fun and educational class!

I only found amazing Heartfelt Creations about a year ago, and now it is the ONLY place I go for my craft supplies. Yesterday, I took my first online class! It won't be my last. Emma Lou explains everything as if she were standing right along side of you. I do well watching the videos she does for most of the products, but the class was way over and above what you learn on the videos. She repeats to make sure you understand; her patience and kindness shine right through her lesson. She is also adorable!

The Insta Album class was such a great learning experience. Such great techniques were discussed and many great suggestions also came from other class attendants. Learning to place the magnets, how to do the pocket inserts and how to embellish using all the little bits and pieces were just some of the ah-ha moments of this class. I highly recommend this and any of the classes. They have all been excellent and you can view them as often as you like.

This was my first class. I loved every second of it. Emma Lou is just so enjoyable to "be with" and truly cares that we learn and 'grab hold' of her enthusiasm. I will probably watch this video 20+ times until I can make this amazing card/book as well. Thank you!, Jeannie

A fabulous class for a huge project! I was pleased and surprised that the project was completed with no sense of being rushed. Emma Lou is a superb teacher and keeps to an easy to follow pace and like magic the project appears! I love these classes and feel such a sense of connection to HC when I am watching them. It also helps to know if I am on the right track with some of the techniques shown in the classes. I always learn something - and usually a lot of things. Thank you so much for a wonderful class

This was my second class to take. It was just as good as the first one. What was important to me was the water spritzing and the color shading of the flowers. Love flower #7. Bless all of you at Heartfelt Creations.

I took this class to get back into crafting with the Hearfelt Creations (HC) flowers. I have done a lot of projects/crafting with HC items in the past but sort of fell out of it as demands for life got in the way. Andrea made it so easy to follow along and answered all our questions while showing us how to use the vellum, the tools, the dies, 3D and regular, and creating an elegant project. She was clear, concise, pleasant, and just in general a beautiful teacher. I am glad I participated and I enjoyed it a lot. She reminded me of a lot of tips I had forgotten and plan to employ in my crafting. I totally enjoyed this class and recommend it to all levels of crafters. Thank you for a fun class Andrea!!! Cheers!

Just sat through the entire video for the flipfold inserts and it was fabulous! This is going to be such a a great help in using those flipfolds that bought but have been too intimidated to use! The video was so easy to follow so I know I won't have any problems. Thanks again, Teresa Rogers

Emma Lou you are such a joy to watch. You make a wonderful teacher with your easy to follow step by step organized instructions of these 15 beautiful cards. The technique you showed with these dies is giving me so many wonderful ideas. Many thanks for all you do and your entire Heartfelt Creations staff. Card making is so much fun working with your top of the line products and love the wonderful classes you offer.

Wonderful class! I feel the most innovative ideas were showing that the album basic shape can be made from layers of your regular card stock thereby making it any size you wish. Also, the layered effects of both the lace medallions and the shakers were a terrific idea and I'm greatly appreciative of your sharing of these ideas. Heartfelt Creations can't be beat for beauty in art and kindness in heart!! Thanks so much.

The Elegant and Versatile Ways to use Border Dies class was terrific! I didn't realize how many mix and match possibilities these dies offer! I appreciate the instructions on using these dies to create my own cards and not limiting myself to the foldout cards. I'll be watching this video repeatedly!

Wow! Emma Lou, you are my crafting guru! I had an amazing time learning to make roses! When making the rose buds, I had glue all over my fingers and loving every minute of it - when we got to the glitter, I had glitter all over my fingers and loving every minute of that too! You went at a slow enough pace on the coloring, shaping forming the first rose that I could keep up and not get discouraged. The next online class I take, I will have my pieces colored ahead of time. Thank you -keep up the good work!
