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

I just finished the Elegant Ruffled Carnation Class. Emma Lou was such a fabulous instructor! What looked intimidating in the photos came together so easily when I followed along. I am so inspired to begin creating more beautiful flowers on my own due to Emma Lou's guidance. Thank you, Heartfelt Creations, for excellent products and exceptional classes!

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!

First on line class with you. I really enjoyed the class. Been a member for years and finally I am putting my stash to work. I am a mixed media artist and don't know why I have not played with your product. Looking forward to sharing my project with you when I am done with it. Also looking forward to your next online class.

This class really helped me get my borders straight. Sometimes I get a little off kilter because I'm left handed so I really appreciate being able to see someone actually do it correctly without guess work. I love these classes. They are very helpful. I do my crafting alone so without the classes and videos and the gallery I don't think I would ever get it right-too frustrating !! Thanks for sharing your expertise with us and thanks to the whole Heartfelt gang for all your great ideas.

This class was fantastic, enjoyed every minute even an early start of 5.00am. I learnt so much it’s never as difficult as you imagine. Emma Lou is so natural and at times funny. Ive learnt not to have perfection but the ways to achieve the best I can. It’s great to be able to watch the class again when I wish to. I really had a great time today. It’s nice to watch the class live and enjoy the comments of others. Thanks Emma Lou and all the team who make this possible.

The flip fold class was awesome. I had ordered the entire package of all three albums and inserts after taking the mini album class at the Anaheim, CA Scrapbook Expo. I was somewhat puzzled by many of the inserts, but you made everything so very easy to follow. I love the fact that I can watch the class again if I need to. What a wonderful learning experience this was. I can't wait for the next one.

Emma Lou, These on line classes do of course teach the skills, and they also build a confidence that allows us to dig deeper in to our craft world and use our supplies. I love the glamour and dimension that using HFC dies, stamps and the flower shaping tool adds to my projects. I was able to create four roses during the class. The great thing is that I can re-watch this video to complete the class. I have become an HFC addict. Congratulations on creating an excellent line of products. ML Makine

I learned how to put a complete album together and to create amazing vellum flowers. I got insight on the use of great techniques to help perfect my craft skills, and learned about new products to enhance my creativity. This was my first class. It will not be my last. I’m going to be a regular. The interaction with the other participants was enlightening and helpful. Thanks Emma Lou for your informative tutorial. Your are an awesome instructor.

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.

I can't believe all the techniques learned in this one class. My favorite is the one with two Circle Card bases joined together and then folded in half. i can see it as a mini album, with pockets. Can't wait to give all of these a try. Thank you Emma Lou. You're an wonderful teacher.

I learned a lot about vellum flowers. Flowers are the trademark for my handcrafted greeting cards and Vellum is a challenging material. It was so wonderful to find someone to explain the problems and what to do to make these flower work. Thank you so MUCH. I really enjoyed the class.

— Lynne Harris
This class was AWESOME! I know I can make this project now, but what struck me the most was Emma Lou didn’t move on to the next step until everyone’s questions were answered. She seems to get much joy from teaching and she’s GOOD at it! Every step of the project was broken down and thoroughly explained. Go ahead and treat yourself! Spend 2 hours with Emma Lou and the creative ladies who participate. This class has jump started my creativity and made me brave!! Many crafty hugs, Elaine

I remember trying to make flowers for months and couldn't get it right. I started watching Emma Lou do them, plus the molds, everyone loves my flowers now. I know I will be taking next class also. Emma Lou, couldn't of done it without ya. Thank you.

Excellent. I enjoyed seeing how to make the various boxes, but I loved to watch how to use dies in different ways. I wouldn't have thought of cutting them up and using them how you did! Thank you for showing us that we can take the dies and use them many different ways.

This is my 2nd online class and I find that they are easy to follow, the instructions are great and I love how you can use the other papers to make the Mini Album. My Blazing Poppies stamp and dies have not arrived yet but when they do I will certainly be locked in my craft room. I have only recently found Heartfelt Creations and I am loving the way all the products can be fitted together to make absolutely awesome cards. I am have all of the border dies and I am slowly buying the stamps and dies.

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.

Hi just a note to say thank you so much for the wonderful job you and the heartfelt creation team has done so many times I have bought Products and did not know how to use them it is great you have online classes for your products also love the PDF file that helps so much if you have one for the flip cards insert I would Like the link thanks again mary lynn

I loved learning a new way of using the flip fold inserts! I would never have thought of combining then to make a mini album! I also loved that Emma Lou showed how different inks acted on vellum, and that she explained the differences in vellum papers sold by Heartfelt. I love to make things, but I’m not good at coming up with my own ideas. Heartfelt Creations classes, whether in person or online, always give me confidence that I can achieve beautiful results.

Another fabulous class by Emma Lou. It is so good to be able to watch on line while the class is happening. It has given me a wealth of knowledge on how to use the flip fold inserts to make mini albums or a page that can be added to my own albums.

This was an awesome class! I loved learning these new techniques. Emma takes her time to answer any questions we may have. I also have learned a new faster way to create stunning mini books! This was my first live class but most certainly won't be my last! I have already signed up for the next one!

I LO he class! Even though I'm an experienced crafter, I still enjoy seeing how Emma Lou does things and I enjoy hearing (reading) what others have to stay. A person never knows it all. I'm going to sign up for the next class as well. I would LOVE to when the $100.00 shopping spree. There's so much I want yet. Thanks for doing these classes for us.

Absolutely loved this class!! Emma Lou makes things easy to understand and things always seem much more doable after watching her. I was particularly :-) toked when she showed another book at the end of the class showing how to add more photos than it seems at face value you can. I purchased the OWIA when the flip books were released and feel like I'm FINALLY ready to go on the attack. Looking forward to more classes. I'm hoping there will be a follow-up to this one incorporating more complex embellishments
