I loved taking this class. Emma Lou did a great job showing each page step by step. The information emailed before hand allowed me to have everything ready before the class and follow along with Emma Lou as she built her album. I have been following Heartfelt Creations since Feburary 2017 when I decided to take their delicate florals class. I fell in love instantly. Their products are top notch quality and blend seemlessly to allow you to create gorgeous flowers that look like you spent hours creating them.

Awesome class, as always. The Album Tags and Accents die set is fast becoming my favorite die set. It can be used in so many applications.

Emma Lou is a terrific teacher. I learned some tips about shaping flowers and adding them to a project that I hadn't thought of before. Can't wait to get started on my next project.

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.

A comfortable and relaxed video showing how to create a wonderful mini album..... Showing us other exquisite albums and then other ideas to make card fronts. Her tips on use of pencils, and the dove blender were wonderful and helpful. Ultimately her tip on stamping and cutting out a bunch of elements first and then they are ready and available for any project is a great idea cutting preparation down and making it easier to "create" . Once again and Epic Class that delivers inspiration and creativity!

Another inspiring and informative class - thank you Emma Lou. I am amazed how you manage to remain cool calm and collected when you make a mistake on camera - you truly have special skills! It was great to see your "mistake creation" transform into a beautiful creation - almost like it was meant to be. I have taken all of the classes so far and have enjoyed each one, and the bonus is there is no more leaving stuff behind at classes as I am sitting just where my crafting stash is.

Class was great! You answered our questions, acknowledged those saying hi & gave some great tips. You explained the same thing in different ways so all of us could get it. I enjoyed your explanation of the ink choices & can use that while I teach. The ahhh moment for me was how to use the the flower shaping molds. Thank you for a great class!

I thoroughly enjoyed this class and even though I have been taking classes at conventions and using HFC products for literally YEARS, there is always something new to learn. Using a hot glue gun to adhere the stamens was my new Ah Ha! moment during this class.. I will take the molds, stamps and dies with me to an upcoming craft retreat weekend in March and give everyone an Ohhh, Ahhh! moment when they peek at what I am working on. Thank you Emma Lou for another great class.

The class is my first class and it certainly won't be my last. It exceeded my expectations. Andrea is an excellent teacher. I could listen to her all day. She speaks clearly and is easy to understand. Kudos on building multiple flowers in the lesson. Thank you Andrea and HC.

I loved this class. This is a wonderful project - so versatile. I think Andrea did a fabulous job explaining everything! I love how detailed she was with making the tulip/rose flowers. I have never used the hinges before, but definitely will in the future. I wish the instruction PDF was better as it left some things out and was not user friendly but I have the video to help. Thanks again Andrea for a wonderful class!

Thank you so much for doing the online flip fold class. I thoroughly enjoyed it and learned how to do all the flip folds and add them to albums. I also learned that there is no right or wrong way, and that I can flip and fold and add them differently if I want to (or I make a mistake, LOL). Emma Lou made it all look so easy and explained everything perfectly. I feel confident that I can create my first album now. And I love that I will have the video to refer back to in case I get stuck. This was a wo

I was so impressed with this class! When it ended, I felt so inspired! This was my first class and now I am encouraged to actually do this project with success! That is great teaching! My favorite section occurred when we were instructed on how to piece the paper sections together to form the 13 1/2" piece of paper needed! That was really cool! Great tip! Thank you Tracy for your class support! Great job Emma Lou! And the roses were spectatular!

Growing up in Hawaii we see many variety of flowers. Never have I come across imitation flowers that looks so realistic until I surfed the web and came across Heartfelt Creations. So vibrant and beautiful. Every time I create a card, it’s like looking out the window and seeing God’s Creation. Your tutorial classes , this being my very first helps me to make my flowers more pleasing to look at. Looking forward for your next on line class. Just started all my collection in Oct.2017. Thank you.

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.

What is most ronderful is learning the many different ways these dies and stamps can be used. It opens up a plethora of ideas and methods. The tips and ideas are so worthwhile for crafting elegant cards and pages. Emma Lou answers questions as you go along. Having the classes for the specific dies and stamps is so worth the time and minor cost.

Thanks for this class. Now I can use those sets I purchased!!! The mini book looks like it took days to make but it can be done pretty quickly once you know how. Love the poppy set, we have a lot of wild poppies here in OR. You are a great instructor, fun to watch and then follow along with the video later using the pause button. Looking forward to the new release next week, I love it!

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!

An amazing way to enjoy creating a new project, learning new techniques, interacting with creators from all over the world and doing it at your pace, your way. It is a scrapbook convention class with a glass of wine. It is an easy pace and you receive so much value for the cost, ultimately making the class free. Emma and her team are so professional and yet relaxed, a friend coming into your home to teach you. Love being able to live text and receive her cheerful responses.

I have attended all 18 of your Online Classes (and just signed up for the next Class too), and I have walked away from each of them with not only new knowledge, and ideas.... I walk away with a new confidence to create even more and not worry about trying new ways. I can see that too from others that have taken these wonderful Classes! Emma Lou it is my hope that these wonderful classes continue, you are building us up as crafters and proving to us there is no limit to our creativity... Thank You!

Thank you, again, for a great on-line class. I learned so much from it. I have had the albums and packets of inserts sitting in my craft room ever since they came out, and have not successfully put one together. I did try, once, and became overwhelmed. I was confident I could make one, but hadn't done so. I think the magnets were the most confusing part for me. After watching your class, I am sure I can manage one now. You are a great teacher. Your instructions were clear and concise, and you sh

Emma, This was the best class ever. You have shown us so many ways to use the lilacs and stamens. Waiting for your shipment of lilac to come in so I can order them, missed them when they were in stock.. Love all your classes.

Excellent class! When I first saw the insta album I thought of my dear sister and how much she would be thrilled and surprised and delighted to receive this album. but at 73 I was a little concerned that it might be a little more than I could do. Dear Emma Lou, you are wonderful at showing that anyone can do it, even if you have problems it's no big deal, just carry on. Your mistakes made it so real and so honest and so doable! You are a treasure! Thank you so much!!

This class was amazing! We made an album from scratch. I can't wait to make an album for my children and grandchild for their birthdays this year. Great tips, techniques, and amazing finished product.

I totally loved this, my first class. Will definitely be attending more. Since I couldn’t wait till end of class to start my flowers, I tried to keep up, but all the colouring quickly got me behind. My suggestion would be for seasoned stampers, to put out the colouring list beforehand. That way we could play along with EmmaLou. Newbies could wait as before to color. Thanks for your consideration.

Loved the class today. I learned about UTEE. Have never used it before but I am glad that there is something speedier than crystal glaze to give that shiny appearance. Madeleine

I had NEVER seen an album made from "scratch". You made it looks so easy. I am hoping I can remember as much as possible so I can make one -- leaving town for 5 days. The class outlined each step very simply: from laying out the frame, cutting pockets and adding decorative trim. Then the fun part of adding embellishments. Needed the refresher on making poppies, and was wowed at using the mold -- added to wishlist!! Can hardly wait for Mega Meet to pick up things to make an album. Thank you so much.

Glad to have the opportunity to see techniques with added details that can be used to make any of these creations easier to make while adding more beauty. This album is less complicated than the other larger album class I had before, but they each serve their own purpose. Thank you for sharing joy in this life's work.

— Nina Johnson
This was a wonderful class. The album is a complex album with a lot of flips and folds that Emma Lou made making it very easy. You can watch the class video again and again and pause it where you need to take more time. Everything is explained at a reasonable pace to keep up with, including tips and ideas to make it your own. They offer additional coupons to save extra money on supplies. They provide a pdf to save and or print as a reference showing you how to cut the cardstock to fit the pages.

I learned a lot from this class...how to select and prepare the inserts and including pockets. I am looking forward to the next class and know I will pick up lots of ideas on decorating my books. I would like to see a class on using your wonderful paper pads in scrapbook layouts. I've been doing this for some time now and would like to see some "fresh" ideas. Thanks so much for all you do for us crafters. Peace

This was my first live class, to be honest I was hesitant to purchase the class, I watched a few videos and felt I could do this on my own. But I loved the previous pre recored classes I purchased so I decided to make time to attend and I was so glad I did. I got lots of new ideas I wouldn't have thought of, saw how the process all came together and got my questions answered. It was so much fun ! Just like getting together with your girl friends to craft. Can''t wait to take another class.
