This was my first paid HFC class, and I enjoyed it except for the technical difficulties. I don’t have the golf tools and now I can understand how they might be helpful! Lots of inspiration!

Once again Emma Lou has brought a fun and informative online class. I will be making a mini album for our youngest daughter featuring her daughter and son. I can’t wait to begin choosing the photos of our grandkids for the album. I know she’ll love it as much as I will making it.

Thank you for showing how to put the roses together. My roses need more practice for sure. I am more confident that I will improve with your encouragement. I love creating cards and definitely need to learn techniques. This class has taught me so much and I am ready to make flowers knowing that each one will look different and that is alright.

For a while now, I've been thinking about great it would be to have a private class with Emma Lou. This class was very close to that! She's so good at answering all our questions while showing us how to create. I have rewatched the video numerous times already and just completed my first 8x8 insta album. I have taken to heart her saying "give yourself grace" when you make a mistake. Everything can be fixed. I absolutely loved this class and can't wait to take another one!

Excellent class, many techniques and tips. Since it is the first class I take, have been pausing a lot, but I want to make it as similar as possible to get the experience. For the 12x12, I will be more receptiva to the instrucciones and move master. Then to pick the photos to complete it. My friends ask me why spend so much money on just one project, but the tools are used for many different project, so on the long run will not have to buy so many. The final results is what matters.

WOW! I have used your flip folds many times in beautiful albums.That said, I just finished the video and I learned so many new tricks and tips to make using the flip folds easier. You are an excellent teacher! I am anxious to get started on the next album.

Was a great class again Emma Lou. I did not buy items for class. Was kind of unsure about doing it but i think the class turned out great and just bought everything that was needed for class. This was my 4th class. Thet were all great and i go back and watch all the time. I was so happy to see how to do the shaker part of the class. I am going to make a couple for the different cruises i have been on. What a great way to show my spouse and my pistures. Will be signing up for the next one.

This class was fantastic. I can take what I learned and maybe even turn some of these ideas into greeting cards. Emma Lou always makes it look so easy and being able to review them over and over keeps me excited about the possibility that I can really do the same. The prep work PDFs are very helpful as I can apply them to other paper collections. Great job! Always a big Thank You.

Arrived late to class but will go back and watch the first 45 minutes I missed. Boxes are beautiful and loved seeing how to decorate with flowers and candy canes and ribbon. Loved the short cut with just pieces of ribbon. Very nice. Love Andrea's classes. Looking forward to the next class!

All the classes you have shared with us have caused so many different and exciting ideas to come to mind that a confidence I didn't know I had is showing up in my completed projects. I am looking with different eyes at all the possibilities I could use to create projects I had't even considered possible. It is like I walked into a whole new world of creating. Every month to get together with you and crafters from around the world to see and share is beyond wonderful, Thank You!

I really enjoyed the class on adding inserts and the fact that I can go back and watch as many times as I want. It was a great class and I learned a lot about inserts and realized they are not as hard as I thought. Looking forward to the Aug. 1st class. Thanks so much for the great instructions.

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!

I loved this class, it was not as difficult as I thought it would be, just time consuming. What a lovely decorative piece for my home and a fantastic gift. I also want to do one with the wedding paper for a bridal shower. Thank you so much for taking the tine to teach us new ways to use our dies and paper. I am one of those people that needs to see to do. I love your videos, such a help. The next class looks beautiful, can't wait and I would love to do more decorative pieces,

I love this class! It was my first one to sign up for online. It helped me break down in what order to tackle the album and how to easily cut paper to fit curves! The assembly of the album was so easy! I have not made foam flowers before but that was broken down into easy steps, also. The tips on making the flowers and what inks to use were a wonderful help. Thanks Emma Lou! You made it very doable! I will be taking more classes in the future!!

Hi Emma Lou. Enjoyed your 8x8 insta album class very much. I like to use a lot of photos and this album has many pretty and interactive spaces to put them in. Love those intricate dies and how they bring such a delicate and enchanting look to the finished project. Thank you to the lovely online support lady for all the help. It was great to be amongst helpful and supportive online community of crafters. Thank you all kindly.

When I first started taking these online classes, I would look at the finished project and think, "There's no way I can do this. Mine will never look like that." Now that I've taken each class, I've learned to trust that Emma Lou will walk me through it step-by-step and mine will look like the finished project! These classes have really helped to boost my confidence. I can now make beautiful things, too! Thank you so much for giving all of us these special opportunities. You are all truly a blessing!

Every class that you do is better than the last one. This class and the pdf so much easier and made perfect sense. It was so wonderful to get so e meshed with you into the excitement of how everything fit and worked with each other. Your instructions while we worked were spot on. For me this made an Album come to life right in-front of my eyes, in all honesty this was the first album I have ever done from start to finish. It won't be my last.

These classes are always informative and fun. It's refreshing to see/learn that things don't always go as planned - because, gee - that never happens to me! The inspiration was wonderful - now what's NEXT :-)

This was a very informative class. I could only listen to it but many great ideas on how to use the stamps and dies in different way. I was intrigued by the golf tool set, I have ordered one so looking forward to testing it out. I wasn't going to ge the peony set until I saw the class so that was a ah ha moment. lol

Whenever I tell people that I am taking an online class in rubber stamping, I usually get this glazed look like that's so boring....until I show them examples of Heartfelt Creations 3-D flowers!!! Then it's, "WOW!!!" And that's what I love about this company...it's not your routine rubber stamp line. It truly is "art from the heart!"
5/5
— Catherine
Totally loved the class.....every class gets better. I learned how to make 3-d flowers and add them to stems...I definitely will be making flower bouquets. I am so happy I found you ...your products have never disappointed me and my orders come quickly...usually a day earlier than expected. I have an impressive Heartfelt collection that will keep me busy for sometime. Thank you again for the inspiration, a pleasant afternoon on a cold dreary day. God Bless and have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Andrea did a super job, explaining everything thoroughly, especially the details to give our boxes and baskets a really professional look. Also, Andrea showed how best to make and attach the embellishments. I can’t wait to try my hand at making all of these now that I’ve been shown how to.

— Mary Pankow
As with the other online classes this one was presented in the most professional way, Emma Lou also makes it a friendly atmosphere so puts everyone in a learning mode. I've used so many of her ideas, like having extra's cut & ready to color for when you are starting another project. I was pleased to learn about using inks & pencils together so that will make it easier to prepare each item. I highly recommend beginners take these classes as even advanced crafters learn something new in each class.

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.

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.

I really enjoyed the class. By the end, I had a better understanding of how to create my Insta-album. I walked away with some great tricks and techniques. Emma lou was very friendly, and the class was interactive. I would highly recommend classes, as they are worth every penny, plus you can go back and watch them over and over and over again. Thank you Heartfelt Cteations. You are an amazing company!!!!

Emma Lou's carnation class was great! Carnations are one of my favorite flowers and Emma Lou makes it look so easy. I can't wait to rematch the class and start putting all my flower pieces together. They are all cut out and colored, and I have shaped some of them so far with the flower-shaping mold. Now I just need to finish shaping the rest and fire up my glue gun. The large carnation is my favorite!

Took your class yesterday and you are an AWESOME instructor. I must admit there was a scary few moments when I thought the class would never happened.  But your staff and you remained calm and kept reassuring you would be up and running in a few minutes.  After a half hour you were as promised up and running and you started the class from the beginning. I love the live shows because of all that you learn not only from you but from your audience and fans.

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!

Each class with HFC builds confidence in using the products to their fullest capabilities. Each class teaches not only techniques but special tips to use in crafting and creating to take my skills to another level. The products are well designed and made and allow crafters to create stunning cards, albums and pages. Emma Lou is a wonderful teacher online as all the instructors are at the shows. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to re-watch these marvelous classes and continue to enjoy crafting.

Eight ways to make peonies truly is an understatement! I think there are an endless amount of ways these flowers could be made with enough imagination and creativity. This is inspiring and motivating. Emma Lou gives good advice throughout the entire class. Her advice to stamp out the flowers one night and cut them another...then color them another is excellent. To come to class prepared takes a little time but enables you to complete the class as she does it.
