This class was awesome and easy to follow. The list of materials needed that was provided was excellent. It gave me time to assemble the items needed and line up the inks to be used. I will be taking more classes on-line! Great job!

This is a fast paced class with lots of information. I am glad you can watch it as often as you like as you put albums together. The many pockets and suggestions for more was a ahh ha moment.

— Eldene
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!!

Loved this class, just waiting for my cherry blossom flower set and mold. Making this for a memory album of my sister for another sister. Needed the push!!, and love the papers. Just now going to cut my papers now and get started, I'll be mindful of placing the magnets. Thank you.

Another great class Emma Lou. I already signed up for the Blazing Poppy class. I thank you for the condolences for my 16yr old dog & ty to everyone else. She was my family & am know am at home alone everyday day until spouse gets home. Once again it was a very informative class. I would never had thought to punch holes in the paper & put flowers in it.As always you explained everything so it was easy to follow. I love getting the discounts as a platinum member. It has more than made up the price for it

Loved this class today. I am making 4 of this size album to give to friends that are joining me on a cruise to the Panama Canal in late October this year. Unfortunately I will not be using all Heartfelt papers - but you will see some of the Under the sea collection popping up. Loved how you extended the dies and the pockets - something that I have not seen done before and that way my ah ha moment today. The dies that Heartfelt has designed are perfect for albums and can be adapted any where.

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!!

Enjoyed the class. Learned a lot about coloring, especially combing markers with color pencils etc. Each class seems to add on to the next. Thank you.

This online class was super, even though I could never watch it until I did the replay. With all the advance preparation that was done in putting the PDF together & Emma Lou's knowledge of the product, & her art background, the class was very informative, & I now have most of the paperwork ready to put in the album. I watch her video's on all the collections I have, some over & over. This class was so informative & like the flip fold album class so glad to have the replay option. Thank you

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.

— Joyce E Coffey
I love how fast this project came together and you have a beautiful work of art in no time! I always learn new things with each class and I've taken every one offered online. I think the pebbles on the base of the box add a pretty finishing touch. My favorite tag was the one with the partial circle. I like the idea of leaving the adhesive cover intact on the foam to allow for the addition of photos at a later point. I so look forward to these classes each month. Thank you Emma Lou and team!

This class was so inspiring because so many techniques were used and explained so well. I just loved all the color combinations, and shaping ideas. Emma Lou wanted to what flower we liked the most, but I liked them all. I am ordering the tulip collection because of these flowers.

— Judy Dodson
This was my first HFC class and I loved it! Andrea is an awesome instructor! She gave clear instructions and made sure we understood the techniques and how to shape the flowers. I also learned that you can use the Art Foam Paper as accents instead of just using to make flowers! Thank you so much for providing the class and inspiration to get crafting me with vellum!

Another wonderful class - as usual for everything Heartfelt Creations does. This was my third class, but the first I was able to watch live as I was not working. Loved learning all the different ways to make flowers look so different when starting out with the same stamps and dies. Great tips from Emma Lou (and the other guests who were trying things at home) on using the molds, types and kinds of paper, using stamens, glittering - easy and time saving tips. Looking forward to the next class.

I have loved every one of Emmas classes. This however, was my most favorite. I so want to be able to make flowers just like in the class.Now it is possible. Emma Lou has such a natural gift for teaching and is a joy to learn from her. Thank- you for this great opportunity to learn and expand our paper crafting. It is a nice privilege to be part of the Heartfelt Creation community. I would like to thank all the personnel for the wonderful service received from this company.... ..Best Regards .

As a teacher Emma Lou has the relaxing gift of easygoing pace that is therapeutic. Yet the class is jam-packed full of information, techniques, and tips. I loved using the sponge with the inkpad to watch the colors blend beautifully but retain a light and delicate feel. I also learned a very simple thing--when securing a die with tape thetape can go across the outer rim to the inside (I have spent so much time trying to keeptape only on the outside rim) That little thing will be such a timesaver!

— Phyllis
Wow!! This class utilized a wide array of the Heartfelt Creation products which I found extremely helpful. Sometimes I get stuck in a rut of using a product just one way so it is always best to take the classes as you can learn there are so many ways to use a product. Keep up the great work of teaching!! Thank you.

Loved the class. I will have to go back to catch all the details. I kept day dreaming of which card I will make first. The Hydrangeas are amazing. I hope to use that technique soon.

— Catherine Shelton
I thought the class was great. I did have 2 periods where the screen was loading. One time was over 5 minutes.. I did go back last night and rewatch beginning as the first on occurred while doing page 1 in book and it played just fine so I know I'll be okay rewatching it. Again I thought it was well put together.

Andrea did a great job, I loved the flowers and ready to see if I can shape them like hers. Thank you for sharing the wire size I was using the wrong size, Beautiful card!!!!!!!!!

An awesome class. Emma Lou gets my creative juices flowing and I am eager to start this project. Heartfelt Creations showcases some of the most fantastic projects and the classes to help us create them. Thanks for your contribution to the crafting world.

This was a great class. I really wanted to learn about shaping the foam flowers. Tip on pinching the ends was helpful. The extra bonus on creating the money envelope was terrific!!! Will watch this again as I begin making my flowers and look forward to another class.

This class was wonderful, and encourages me to start using my border dies more. I love the layering of the different dies. Thank you for providing the class. Now to watch it again!!

Wow Emma Lou! Thanks to you I have learned so much about construction. Your demonstrations and instructions were phenomenal. I can’t wait to get started on my album. I definitely will register for June’s Insta Album class. Thanks for a fun, fantastic and fabulous afternoon.

Emma Lou, beautiful mini album! Is there a reason you chose not to leave a border when adding the gorgeous paper to the album? I really enjoyed this class. Can't wait to make one.

This class was excellent. It flowed very well from beginning to end. Everything was covered very well, and I liked that Andrea demonstrated the different techniques to get the shapes desired. I learned so much and look forward to the next one. Thanks for a great experience!

— Linda Davis
It really is great to have your classes to help realize that what looks like what might be a project that is just too overwhelming, once you break it down into steps, I think, "Hey, I can do this!" Also love the tips I pick up throughout the class; both from Emma Lou and the class participants. My only small complaint is sometimes the camera is a little off, and she is doing things slightly off camera. But this is such a tiny thing and is only momentary. I'm so happy I've gotten into HFC. Inspiring!

Emma Lou makes the classes informative but also fun! Her step by step instructions are concise and engaging. I really enjoyed the techniques with layering the tags...so beautiful! I recently purchased the tags and will definitely use these ideas. This is my fourth class, and I think they are all inspirational and a good investment for learning for both beginner and experienced crafters. I especially appreciate the bonus codes Emma Lou gives during class...even though my wallet doesn't! Keep them coming!

I learned so much from taking the How to Create Lush Lilac & Hydrangeas online class. I finally got to watch a class live & I am sooo glad I did!! It is so worth the small fee to take it. It was great to have the $15 coupon to use to purchase the supplies I didn’t have that are needed for the class. It was almost like taking a class in person with Emma Lou. I would definitely recommend to everyone to take all of the online classes that are offered. I sure plan to.

I loved the lilac class! I even had all my homework done and wanted to do the cards with you, but I think I like just watching the first time so I can see the comments and your work. I just finished all three cards and they are gorgeous. Thank you so much for sharing all your tips. I can’t wait to sign up for the next class. Stephanie

I just wanted to thank Emma Lou & Heartfelt Creations for supplying crafters with not only the products but the instructions/class element with those products. I just took my first class, mini album & foam flowers, and can't wait to get started !!! So much inspiration & a fine job Emma Lou!! It was not too fast.or slow !! Took away many favorite things and will definitely be back!! I took the class due to the topic, of mini album & foam flowers... TjaIt was awesome !!! Merry Christmas Heartfelt Family !!!

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.

This was so EXCITING for me to attend my first Heartfelt Creation Class and I enjoyed interacting with all the other Heartfelt crafters. I thought I was a crafter before, but with all the techniques that you showed us today, Wow! It blew my mind into another dimension of crafting. Thank you so much Emma Lou & team. I strongly desire to be a professional designer like YOU! Irma

This is my second review because I just finished watching the video a second time. I loved all the flowers but my favorite one is the technique of flower # 6. The tip about the basic concept of the versatility and random, curling in different direction. Another tip that is nice to know is making my own swatch colors system for the flowers. You mentioned that you will talk about how to use the round daubers. I would like to have details about the round daubers. Again, Emma Lou, you are an excellent teacher, love taking your classes. Congratulations for your baby boy. take care ginette

This was my absolute favorite of the Heartfelt Creations classes so far. It was packed with so many creative ideas for embellishing an album (that we created from scratch, by the way)! Learned how to put the shadow boxes together and learned a very cool way to make shakers so easily! Also learned great ways to use all of the pretty border dies. My creative juices are really flowing now so off to make something beautiful!
5/5
— Patricia Bowman
Wow! What a whole lot of information, techniques and suggestions in a relatively short period of time. I am exhausted from just watching. This class was amazing. So many techniques got demystified for me and so many ideas and information just poured in! Shakers, embossing techniques, shaping of not only flowers but many other items as well, creative ways with borders, how to use flip folds are just some of the techniques featured in this class. I am looking forward using these ideas in my own crafting.

— Dianne Kirkham
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!

— Toni Rapp
I thoroughly enjoyed taking this class. There were sooo many techniques demonstrated with these dies, I will be re-watching this one over and over. I will certainly be using these techniques over and over as well. My favorite part was learning the embossing technique and the partial duplication of a die on the other side (purple and gold sample on the wall). Welcome back Emma Lou and thank you for this fun and informative class!

— Kim Bethke
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,
