Another amazing class and a bonus with the gift cards Emma showed us how to make for any occasion. Also appreciated the segment on using the foam paper. Thanks again and Merry Christmas to the the Heartfelt Creations family always a pleasure taking classes.

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!

I was very impressed with Andrea. This is the first time I have attended one of her classes. Excellent skills to describe what she is doing and tools or techniques used in the process. She comes across as very nice and personable. Loved this class. I’ve been struggling with vellum. I’m anxious to get into my craft room and try out these techniques! I am a huge fan of these sessions! There is real value in being able to replay these classes when I’m working on projects.

We’ve missed having Angelica teach at our local scrapbook stores here, so it was especially nice to take your Facebook Live Class to stay connected. Emma Lou did an amazing job of keeping up with all of our questions and comments while demonstrating the projects. The class went at a nice pace and included helpful tips. We not only got a BONUS PROJECT, but also a special GIFT with purchase and $15 CREDIT. Great value and fun! I’m looking forward to more classes.

Thank you for the wonderful inspiration in this peonies class. It was so helpful to see the variety of ways to color and shape. We’re never too seasoned to learn something new in every class. So often I just go back to a class for new ideas and relearn something I’ve forgotten. Thank you for your detailed demos, Emma Lou!!

I loved loved the class. I loved learning how to use the foam! I struggle with the boarder dies so that was very very helpful. Going over how to glue stamens with different techniques was fantastic! Emily Lou, is very patient!! Can't say enough about the staff either! Cindy and Tracy are always so helpful!

The class was fabulous! The roses beautiful and also the finished cards! Thank you so much for sharing your how-tos. Emma was very good at showing and telling us what to do, and trying to answer all the questions and comments as they popped up. She explained everything she was doing and was so sweet and polite and excited about what she was showing us. I will probably watch the class again right after lunch, to catch more of what I missed or needed more practice with. Thanks again.

What a great class! At first the project looked very difficult to do but the way Emma Lou explains how to do each step it was quite easy to follow along. I like how Emma Lou and Tracy answer the verious questions people ask during the video. I find all the useful tips to be a great help. I learn to do so much from these classes and I am really looking forward to the future classes.

Another fantastic class! I don't know how you do it, but each one just gets better! I always learn so much from them. I would never have tackled this mini album on my own, so it was so fun to learn together. Now, I feel I can actually attempt one on my own. The money folder was such a neat bonus, too. Thank you for taking the time to share your knowledge and skills with us!

This was my first online class with Heartfelt Creations. I watched Emma Lou do her magic and am so thankful to be able to watch the class video as often as I want. The class was well worth it. I can't wait for my order to arrive so I can create along with the video. Thank you for your beautiful stamps and matching dies.

This class gives several good ideas and examples of beautiful boxes and baskets for you to share with friends. Tips and techniques provide helpful guidance as you make each item shown. The downloadable .pdf gives you the supplies and instructions for cutting and scoring, so helpful! Andrea is a wonderful communicator and does a great job sharing her knowledge of crafting. I liked her style and would take a class with her again. Thank-you Andrea!

My first class and I loved it. I will have to get some paper to make the flowers.

— Susan Cooper
The class was great. I wish the pre-class instructions had been more clear about cutting out the ovals and the critters/flora/fauna, as it was impossible to do the die cutting and keep up with the class. In the end, I just watched and now I have another UFO to work on :-) Good thing I love doing the albums! LOL!

Totally enjoyed my first class! Learned so many new techniques and tips. I appreciate the interactive process. It allowed questions to be asked and answered during the class. Also showing which supplies are used and where to get them is a plus. All I can say is Emma Lou is a great teacher and can’t wait for my next class!

I learned so much in this class. It was just like being there. I am finishing my album now where before j just looked at the inserts and wondered how to use them. I work weekends so I'm unable to attend classes and this works so well for me. Cant wait to sign up for another one! Thank you so much! Donna Anderson

I have learned how to ruffle the edges of my leaves and how to put the flower pot together. I LOVE, LOVE your classes I have watch all four so far. I look forward to Christmas mini album in December ( will sign up after this email). I truly appreciate Emma's precise instructions. And I absolutely love your company. I order as much of your product as I can and have enjoyed each and every one.. Last month I ordered the card kit for the first time and enjoyed that as well. Keep the good work up. Thank you!!!

I am not exactly a beginner, but this class was very useful to me. I learned from the way Emma Lou created tabs for inserts that didn't have one where she wanted. Also, the way she cut inserts to make the shape she wanted was very informative and gave me lots of ideas. I use more inserts in my albums than she did, but she taught me that sometimes less can be more. I am looking forward to the next class and have already registered.

I thoroughly enjoyed both of the online classes and am amazed at all the information and tips shown and just how much more I have learnt. I had already made an album at a class Emma Lou taught while here in New Zealand but couldn't manage to put another one together by the time I got home. The PDF of paper cutting is a fantastic tool that I will use over and over again Thank you for these classes, so fun and informative. Emma Lou and team you are the best!!

This was my first online class and I really enjoyed it. Emma Lou and the Heartfelt crew are so inviting, informative and encouraging. The instructions were delivered in a warm, friendly manner allowing for beginners to experienced crafter's skills. It felt like a cozy gathering with your good friends where you all got to learn fun new things. Thank you! I'm looking forward to taking more classes, now.

I loved the Flip Fold class. I purchased some of the inserts previously and wasn't sure what to do with them so had them in a drawer. Now, I know how to use them and purchased several items yesterday to use with them. I love Heartfelt Creations' products and their Customer Service. They are always responsive and so helpful. This is my first paid for class with Emma Lou and found her to be an excellent teacher. She is very patient even when things go array that cause distractions.

I so enjoy watching and learning about Vellum...I have to say it helped a lot to relax me for we had to leave our home because of the Carr Fire in CA. Want to thank you so much for the wonder tutorial and of course what a wonderful teacher I always learn so much for Emma Lou.

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 love your ideas and learned so much from this class. I have made many Mini Albums using your papers and embellishments, but this one is unique and I can't wait to start mine. You are so kind and pleasant and it was a pleasure being with you for over two hours. Thanks for making this a very pleasant day!

Hi! Watching in replay as I could not watch during the day because I work full time. I have a crop weekend coming up this weekend and am so excited to make this album. I have a comment/request...... It would be nice to be able to watch in replay as if we were watching live, meaning that we can see everyone's comments. Similar to watching a facebook live video where you can turn on/off the comments. Also, is there some type of forum or private facebook group where we can ask questions or get help?

Can't begin to even tell you how much I enjoyed this class. I'm going to use this umbrella on the tables at a baby shower and then draw names for a few of them to take them home. Please do another class with home decor. Love, Love, Love it!!! Thank You for sharing!!!

Thank you so much for this wonderful class, really like the double flip fold album. Easy to assemble , being I’ve put that flip fold together before. Love them tecqnick with the inks on the vellum flowers and putting the glitter on the heated embossing powder. I look forward to your next class and I’m telling my friends all about your next flower shaping class. Thank you again.

This class was AAAAA++. This class has taken my Carnation making to the next level. It was so helpful to see several different techniques to use with just one flower die to get different looks. I will now be using stamens in all my flowers - it adds such a nice touch. I thought the class was well paced and the video was perfect with no dead spots or spinning circles. The camera angles were perfect making it easy to follow along.

Andrea was very thorough in her explanations. She gave alternatives in several places and reassured those new to Heartfelt that their results may not be exact, but would be equally beautiful. Even though I was unable to attend live, she made sure she addressed my question.

Thank you Emma Lou for once again sharing your crafting knowledge. The Paper Roses session showed me how take my crafting to another level. The roses are gorgeous and learning the tweezer trick was awesome! I now know what to do with Crystal Lacquer. I love your classes, I love your enthusiastic teaching style it is awesome. I love Heartfelt Creations.

Christmas is my favorite season and I really enjoyed today's class, especially the coloring techniques. I plan on creating three of these two-sided decorations, one for each of my daughters and, of course, one for me! I think that even a seasoned crafter can learn from Emma Lou's classes; they have reinvigorated my "craftiness." I am attending a crop next week and can't wait to recommend these online classes to my fellow crafters!
