I’ve watched all or most of your YouTube videos. This was my first time attending a class and I’m glad I did it. Busy with lots of Christmas stuff right now, but looking forward to putting this class to use!

Another great class with Emma Lou... I love taking these classes even if it is something I wouldn't normally craft myself. I am always learning new techniques, tricks and tips in her classes. This class was no exception. Thanks Emma Lou and HC staff for a great class. I'm looking forward to the next one.

Another wonderful class, I enjoyed learning about putting together a new album, they always make such great gifts. You always show how to easily assemble all the pieces & make it easy to accomplish. I always enjoy any coloring tips, thank you for being a great teacher.

Thanks for the Insta-Album class. I really appreciate the step-by-step help with cutting all of the pieces in the PDF document, and the steps for embellishing each of the pages. I also appreciate the option to review the video as many times as needed to complete not only this album, but also for making many more.

I am so very glad I decided to take this class. I didn't even buy the tulip stamp and die set until I saw this class offered, because I really am not crazy about tulips. This class helped me to really appreciate the beauty of the tulip. It was an amazing class that offered countless tips for us crafters. I especially loved the way Emma demonstrated countless ways to use the golf tool. The tech team was great in fixing the glitch in a timely fashion. Kudos to them!!! Heartfelt Creations as always is at the top of my list for supporting the customer with their user friendly products and all the information they put out there for us to use them after we purchase them. Thank you for another great class.

I really enjoyed this class it took away the mystery on how to use these inserts. I had bought them a few months ago but was intimidated on how to use them. The class was very relaxed and Emma Lou made it look so easy to accomplish a stunning album I am sure I will be signing up for the next class. I like the fact that you can come back and watch it again at your leisure and not feel that you have to accomplish 3 albums in just 2 hours. It honestly didn't feel like 2 hours. Thanks again for a lovely class.

Such a GREAT class! We learned so many flower styles and picked up so many new tips. As always the class with Emma Lou was perfectly paced; she is warm, friendly, knowledgable and professional all at the same time. She responds to questions in the feed and Tracey was there as usual posting links and handling inquiries about products outside of class. A perfect way to take a class for those of who don't get out much to take them in person. I've already signed up for the next one. I HIGHLY recommend!!

Not only was the slider card beautiful and creative, and the roses stunning, but your hearts to help the needy give new depth of meaning to your name Heartfelt Creations. No wonder I love all that you do! God bless and keep you all!

I wasn't able to attend the live class this time due to a dental appointment. I just completed watching Emma Lou's video and she made the card seem easy. Magic! The rose is the first set of flowers that I bought from you quite some time ago. I have never used it and Emma Lou's demonstration makes them look pretty easy. This is a beautiful project, but didn't have as many pockets as I expected. I did the March class and it wasn't quite right either, but I'm thinking that the birdhouse might work.

Great class. Even though I have been making roses for over a year, this class gave me some valuable instruction to make my roses even better than I had been making them. The tips regarding using tweezers to curl the petals to give the rose a more life-like look. Using a hot glue gun to make the buds and especially how to repair a petal that was broken. I really like being able to go back and watch the video to review a specific area of instruction. I can stop, review, then move on. Love that!

I absolutely loved, loved, loved the class. Unfortunately, I had a few questions and I couldn't ask them because from the time that the class started until it ended, it said that live chat had ended. But the class ( as usual ) was great.

This was my first online class and it was awesome. I love the large full carnation the best but cannot wait to try all the versions. Your products are so versatile and you make it so easy to wow card recipients. I liked learning how to add the stamens as I was struggling with that. I will be sending a card for Marisa. Thank you for all you do. It is nice deal in with a Christian company.

This tutorial like all the other was very informative and money well spent. From stamping , to cutting , to molding them into shape It was like you were right there At Emma Lou’s side. The colouring techniques are on point and she takes a lot of time explaining the stamens and how to shape your flowers into a work of art . Who knew you could make 8 different looking roses with just one set of stamps and dies. I love her color combinations and how she shows the different ways the flowers can be used . Just a whole lot of awesomeness , thank you .

Love your class, it was easy to follow and helpful, especially with making the roses extra gorgeous and placing the flowers together in a lovely way that I wouldn't have thought using Dogwood, Lilac with the roses. I am looking forward to making this, I think I will choose a plum shade for the roses to bring in the background. The April class looks wonderful, very excited for it. Thank you Emma Lou for another great class!!

I really enjoyed today's class. I signed up for the class to see the products in "action." I wanted to see the products used together to complete a finished mini album. I am a visual learner to watching a live class helped me vs reading an instruction list. In the class, I was able to see how easy it is to shape borders and assemble a mini album. I liked receiving the "homework" so I know what sizes to cut. I am glad you explained the difference between Memento and Stazs on ink. This helped my Confidence.

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

Hi To all from Heartfelt Creation. Sorry that my English is no so good. I want to let you know that I love all you’re classes.

This was my first online class of any kind and I really enjoyed it. It was well worth the cost, which you end up getting back in product and discounts.

Another great class and I look forward to making my album. I am going to make this into a baby album for my nephew and his wife. Any chance for a baby collection? I Love how I can do one stop shopping with you and get all I need as far as paper, coordinating stamps and dies and embellishments. I love the idea of the circles for magnet placement but it would be nice if you numbered the circles so you know what circles go together. I love Heartfelt Creations!

Loved the class This was my first on line class with Emma Lou. I am on vacation and passed up a standing Thursday golf date with hubby and friends to attend the class live. I am really looking forward to giving the project a try. I watched rather than played along. I have several family members in nursing homes and my best friend is having major surgery Monday. What a great little gift to let them know they are being thought of that will last, unlike real flowers. i love that she doesn't rush.

I'm a very experienced crafter with not enough time to craft, so taking these on-line classes gives me that push to actually fit in a little bit of time for myself. The level of the teaching is good for all levels of crafters since Emma Lou answers everyone's questions and gives tips as she goes along. I love being able to purchase my supplies on-line from the Heartfelt Creations website, take the class while I sit watching at home, and make my projects without ever leaving home. LOVE the classes!!

Making these roses from start to finish looked very intimidating to me. Emma Lou made the process painless! I watched the class about three times before I decided to try my own roses. It is good to see not only the coloring of the petals and leaves but also the die cutting! The ruffled petals are beautiful! Every time I watched the class I picked up another tip. Emma Lou is an awesome teacher and the products speak for themselves. They are the most beautiful on the market anywhere!

From the beginner to the experienced colorist. Thank you for being so patient and thank you for generosity with coupons and other incentives you give us. I love the Heartfelt products. Thank you again and I look forward to the next class.
