You earned a 5-heart rating from me today! This was my first online crafts class; it won't be the last I take from HC ! Kudos to Emma Lou--you are a star! Despite minor technical difficulties, loved how you kept the class moving along. I enjoyed the comparison of the original book to the new one underway, and the page-by-page review of embellies at the end was excellent as a wrap-up and final review of how the finished pages look. Thanks for the experience, and can't wait for my order to arrive!

Thank you so much for putting on these online classes. I love the fold out cards, and I had a chance to take a class at the Mesa stamp and scrapbook expo. This class clarified a few things for me so I feel more confident using the product I’ve purchased.

Heartfelt Creations and Emma Lou provide the best crafting on-line education. The classes always cover the general use of the products and great ideas on different ways they can be used. A die is not just a die if you use your imagination. The classes are always very organized and the flow is so natural. I like how the classes provide the opportunity for the participants to interact and not only learn from Emma Lou but each other. There is always an ahha moment. Thanks Heartfelt Creations.

Just watched a fantastic class with Emma Lou on the Insta-Album! So much information - well presented. I can't tell you how much the classes help and the wonderful ideas. Your wonderful personality and enthusiasm makes the 2 hours fly by and just so much fun! Thanks again to Emma Lou and Heartfelt Creations.

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

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 Love how Emma Lou makes everything look so beautiful! I've been in many of her in person classes, (which I prefer) but the online classes are convenient to start, stop and replay anything that I may be questioning. Emma Lou hits another "home run" with this class!

I love taking classes from HFC on line or at shows. I always have a completed project and perfect directions. Taking this class was stress free. I had completed putting the album together after replaying the first class; received the PDF and cut the pieces required. When Emma Lou started I was ready to go. Thank you for all of the thought you put into your products. They are high quality and gorgeous, plus they are fun. I am definitely going to take the Roses class!!

I absolutely loved everything about this online class. From the PDF file that was sent to us so we could prepare beforehand to the completed album we created at the end. Emma Lou is such a good teacher. She explains everything clearly and is very encouraging. Thank you for taking the time to show me how easy it is to create a beautiful and elegant mini album.

I really enjoyed your class. You explained cutting and placing very clearly. I am just waiting for my order to arrive and I will add the inserts and then decorate. You have made me excited about crafting again - I came home from our vacation and was in a "Okay. What am I going to do now?" mood! My hubby suggested I sign up for the roses class. I'll certainly look into it! Thanks again for the great class!

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 simply love this item and the class was so much fun! My two friends and I started a few days ahead thinking we would be really prepared to keep up with you. We soon discovered that was not going to happen. :) This class taught me so many different things such as how to mold and shape flowers,how to use daubers properly, making delicate stamens, and so much more. Thank you so much for sharing your talent and love for crafting. We enjoyed doing this class with you.

All of the online classes have been exceptional. The great thing about this class was expanding the use of my Peony Stamps and Dies to create different looks and moods. This makes the cost point even lower as you extend the versatility of the products. Emma Lou does an excellent job of teaching how to shape, mold and create with simplicity. Not being artistic/creative by nature, these classes give me the confidence to create artful (from the heart) cards and layouts. I highly recommend these classes.
5/5
— Mary Lee Makinen
Wow this class was so informative with lots of unique tips and tricks. I felt confident, going into this class, that I knew how to create mini albums. However, Emma Lou did a wonderful job teaching me something new by combining the flip and fold albums. Very cool. This class really takes the intimidation factor out of creating vellum flowers. I totally love these online classes.

This was the first HC class I attended. While I caught a few tidbits, I really didn't learn as much as I'd hoped. It seemed more project based than technique based. Nothing wrong with that, just not what I was expecting.

— Shelley Stephen
I love how we took our time to go through all the different techniques. I didn't do tch the project because I like to watch first. Now I will watch it again and make the project. I am making it so I can put it up on our vacation condo that we are renting for this holiday. Can't wait until the next class. Pilar

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!

— Donna M Knight
A lot of information, tips, techniques, inspiration and " how to's" in this class requiring Emma Lou to move at a quick and steady pace and she still managed to cover it all in 2 hours with clear and concise instruction. I have taken all of the online classes and I am so glad I have. I have already signed up for the next one and I can't t wait to see what lies ahead. If you have never taken one, consider it "a must do". You'll never regret it!

Emma Lou, thank you so much for teaching step by step this class. I learned new ways and techniques on how to use the Pocket and Flipfold inserts. I also learned new tips on how to test the ink on vellum to see what works and what doesn’t. This was a great tip for me. I have taken every class and I learn new things all the time. I can’t wait for the next class. You are an awesome and inspirational teacher and person. God bless you always my friend.

This was my first on-line class and I thoroughly enjoyed it! I can definitely see the value in all of the information provided by actually attending a class. I've watched many tutorials and have always found them very helpful. But the additional detail provided through the class is extremely helpful, and the fact that I can re-watch the class over and over is definitely an added bonus! Emma Lou is an excellent teacher and I plan to attend more classes in the future.

I Never realized that you could cut images apart and fill them into your flowers until today. I also got some good coloring tips today. Over all the class was filled with good ideas and I especially LOVED the great close-ups from the camera man.

I had trouble with my tablet not connecting to watch the class. I did get to watch it later, I love the class and I can't wait for the next class. I always get so excited to watch Emma Lou doing the videos and I watch them all over again. I love heartfelt creations! I live on a fixed income and can't buy everything I want, so I have to try and choose one's I can use for more than one project. I love them all. I'm a craftaholic and I love it. I am so excited!

I have attended many classes in many venues and this was beyond a doubt the best one yet. I am 80 years old, so when I say many classes, I mean MANY. Thank you for this awesome learning opportunity. I am excited to put my new-found knowledge to use. Emma Lou and Heartfelt - Congratulations on another outstanding presentation.

Emma Lou and her team are doing a fantastic job of showing how to best use the beautiful Heartfelt papers and flowers. Emma is endlessly patient and always interested in what the students ask. She addresses questions asked by students during the online class. Very good course and instructor. Looking forward to the next one.

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.

I loved this class. The cards are always beautiful, but learning to make the album is going to be invaluable for my ideas. As always, Emma Lou explains everything so clearly in a calm step by step manner and having the ability to go back as many times as needed to review is the golden apple. Your products are beautiful and your staff is always so helpful. Thank you all for your attention to the tiny details. They make a huge difference in the final products. Love your company! You all go above and beyond!

Emma Lou, you are such an adorable host and teacher. I'm a long time crafter and always learn something new or refresh a technique that I may have forgotten about. Your classes are well paced and videoing is great. Your outfits always seen to reflect your subject matter in your video, how cute is that. Keep teaching we love your smile!!!

Always a pleasure to spend an afternoon crafting with Emma Lou, the Heartfelt Creations team, and other crafter's. All without ever having to leave my house. I love it! I have taken every class and look forward to each new one every month. They have really increased my skills and boosted my confidence. Thank you so much!

I enjoyed this like I have all the others I have taken, was happy to learn more about coloring.I am so thankful that your classes are recorded because about 1hour into the class my internet died for a few minutes so I went back and didn't loose any of the class....was glad to learn about glittering with sticky paper, stacking die cuts for thicker pieces and all your wonderful tips that are so helpful...... You are a great teacher, thank you.

Another amazing class. We haven't used the border dies a lot. They seemed to fit more on pages or in an album. This class gave me many different ways to use the decorative edges on cards and any other project we want to make. Thanks for new ways to use the dies we have.

— Jeppson
Once again, Emma Lou presents a very complex project in a step-by-step model that is easy to follow. The techniques for building the spine of a book can be adapted and used for any size book. The tips range from what type of glue is best for what paper to how to create and arrange beautiful flowers. I'm not much for making books but I love using what I have learned for making cards and enhancing my scrapbook pages. Always a great learning experience!

Desire: Directions of colors used for flowers and how many flowers will be used. I cut 20 of the Sunrise Lily yet only used the scalloped circles to hold up the petunia. If a separate die would be designed to make the circle scallop holders and stamen it would increase my productivity. I love your product and I love the on line classes. I learn every time I see you demonstrate flower making. None of my comments are meant to be criticism. I love Heartfelt Creations!!
