I think without this class I would have been really lost with these dies. Emma Lou explained in such a clear way as to what to do with each of these dies. I appreciate all the techniques that she shared with us. I love the way she showed us other ways to use some of the dies and the many helpful tips. This video was a great learning experience and I got so much out of it. Thanks for a tremendous class.

Hi Emma Lou! I totally loved your class. I was so intimidated and did not dare to try making an album on my own. So the layered and shadow box cards were left untouched in my craft room . After watching your class I became more comfortable with myself and I believe I can make my album now. Thank you so much Emma Lou for the wonderful step by step easy instructions that you taught. Keep the classes coming. God bless you my friend.

Wow what a informative class on making flower jewelry. I can see using all your flowers and maybe even slipping in a butterfly or bird in to the necklace . Great hints for the magnets too. I’m really looking forward to your next class. Beautiful, thank you.

Absolutely loved the class. This was my first on line class and I appreciated the ‘tips to cut and color the pieces ahead of time to be able to follow along. The class went very fast....but have watched again to complete even more pieces. Emma Lou is clear in instructions and I have made many carnations since! I took them to my local craft store and shared with the owner wh also has taken classes from Emma Lou. Thank you for your inspiration with many other ways to use the flowers.

My first HC class and it was perfect. Uma's BEAUTIFUL design and Andrea's INCREDIBLE teaching was definitely art from the heart! Looking forward to enjoying many more classes. Thank you so much Heartfelt Creations. In regards to the request for pictures of each page I think if you take a moment in the future videos to pause and show the page before actually creating the page would help. If possible, even have the pictures on the PDF or a link of page pictures to help with understanding all the cutting directions. There were a few cuts I misunderstood and I think the pictures would have been helpful

Love the class, which you would have put the color combinations for the flowers so we could have had them pre colored so it would have been quicker to follow along. Like in the Convention classes with all direction on the sheets with the kit class. thank you so much for showing me more shaping techniques. Miss you greatly Lisa Schoendienst

Thank you Andrea and Heartfelt Creations for bringing us this fabulous class. I have tried the foam flowers in the past. I was not crazy about the foam initially. This class on the foam flowers was so enjoyable. Andrea shared tips and techniques that are making me so excited to try foam flowers again, not to mention the flowers were all gorgeous! Thank you Andrea,

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!

Hello Emma and all behind the class people! Thank you again for your hard work. It was my first online class with you, although i took classes at shows. I did all pre-cutting from PDF, thinking what a good girl I am :) I thought I wwould finish all 15 plus cards within 2 hours! Ha-ha-ha. This pre cut papers were just the tips of the huge iceberg. (That what I didn't know about, so I will have days to enjoy.) As a teacher myself, I need to mention that the class was of great pace and packed with a lot of techniques and tips. It is really worth money we paid as we can watch and watch the class again.

The class today was great! It Helped me to understand how some of the flipfold inserts with complicated folds work on an album! I feel like I can now use them successfully and not be afraid of adding them incorrectly. Emma Lou also gave us some great tips on adding paper after your folders instead of before. I really enjoyed the class and will definitely be signing up for the next class!

Thanks for this class. Now I can use those sets I purchased!!! The mini book looks like it took days to make but it can be done pretty quickly once you know how. Love the poppy set, we have a lot of wild poppies here in OR. You are a great instructor, fun to watch and then follow along with the video later using the pause button. Looking forward to the new release next week, I love it!

Wonderful class. It's always a treat to see new tools used. Use of the stamens and flower shaping and layering were clearly explained and easy to follow. I always love seeing the color combining. I have taken them all, always learn something and I can't wait for the next. Thank you Emma Lou and huge thank you to the entire H/F team-family.

I have purchased many online classes elsewhere but NEVER have they been as informative and so much fun as the ones with Emma Lou! I purchased both flip fold album online classes and I will definately be registering for the roses class! Thank you so much Heartfelt Creations and especially Emma Lou! you are a natural and made it all look so very easy!

This was an awesome class - there were problems with our server so missed the live show earlier today. Having said that, I have learnt how to figure out the number of layers to make each of the roses - I will never forget 3 for the base! and the best thing I learnt was how to create the bud, I had mistakingly put petals side by side rather than across from each other - now I know - I will never get a flat cone again! I think I have a new found friend - Emma Lou - this class was easy to follow, Thank You

Absolutely loved this class I learned so much. I can keep practicing and practicing with this video till I get it right.

I love your tutorials! Yes, I know there were some "technical" difficulties, but they were resolved and, as always, I know I can log into my account and watch them over and over again. I would like to take this opportunity to say, OMG!!! I have never, ever had a company call me directly to ask how I liked my recent purchase and if that wasn't enough......I got a HANDMADE thank-you card in the mail too!!! Your customer service goes above and beyond anyone else!!! Thank-you, Harlan!!! You made my day.

Another fantastic step by step "how to create" video to inspire and up-skill us crafters deserves a huge heartfelt thank you. Loved the flower pot and seeing all those little tricks with the florist wire made my eyes pop! It was like an adventure to wonderland, exploring and uncovering magical hidden secrets along the way with Emma Lou our brave and courageous tour guide. The polystyrene flower ball shown towards the end of the video was a delicious treat tantalising us with other ways to create gorgeous.

The“How to Create Elegant Paper Roses” online class was amazing! I enjoyed the great tips Emma Lou provided while demonstrating the techniques for shaping elegant roses. I am not as intimidated to try to create beautiful roses with this set I purchased a year ago. Thank you for demonstrating how to shape & build the flowers plus creating an amazing card to showcase the finished roses. I especially love that I will be able to view this class again to review the steps and practice. A great investment.

This was my very first class so I had no idea what to expect. I was at work so I had to watch on and off so very much looking forward to watching it at home with no interruptions. I loved, loved, loved the class. I learned so many helpful hints. I consider myself a beginner at flower making but this gave me the courage and confidence to go play with my dies and shaping molds and let the fun begin. Thank you for giving me the nudge. And the fact that I can watch it over and over again is wonderful.

Such a great class! Emma Lou and the Heartfelt Creations team always have a way of making a daunting project turn into a relaxing, fun, easy class. The instructions are clear and precise., but still allow for your own artistic input. The classes are always presented with a great sense of camaraderie. I always look forward to each one with great anticipation and am never disappointed. From beginner to professional, you will be able to accomplish your goal in each class and learn something new.

This class was AMAZING!!!! I have taken several classes and love them all. These boxes are simply beautiful; I can't wait to give these to family and friends. After watching so many of Emma Lou's classes, I didn't think that anyone could take her place as an instructor. I was wrong, Andrea is just as amazing!!! I can't wait for the next class.

Thank you Emma Lou for another great class. I enjoy these so much. Best part is being able to go back and watch over and over again. I love that you show small errors and how to fix them. Can't wait for the next class. I find the more classes I take the better notes I take as I can think ahead more to making my flowers.

Another great class! I always learn so much from Emma Lou and the other crafters in the class. It's always great to share information and ideas. The class showed me how to make the album which I have never done before. Really never considered doing it. I'm sure I can apply the ideas and be successful with the project. My friends that I give these cards and things to think I'm so talented but it's easy with Heartfelt Creations. Everyone with the company is a treasure in my life.
