Emma Lou Does and awesome job of presenting and explaining how to make your mini album. The PDFs before class are great because you can have everything stamped and cut and ready to go so you can put your album together as you go. The other great thing is if fall behind you can go back and watch the video and finish your project. Can not wait to enjoy more classes.

Love all your classes and always learn a lot. Today was all great but have and am loving your new Art paper foam and really wanted to learn how to use it. Love the feel of it and the way it cuts. It’s wonderful. This has nothing to do with this class but have all your pointsettia stamp n dies and all three molds and with my arthritis, I love them so much. Thank you for everything! You are a blessing!

Once again, wonderful! A funny haha. I left the window open after purchasing. I forgot about the date of the class. All of a sudden I heard Emma Lou's voice coming from my computer. :D I was able to watch the start and finish. Just need to go back for some of the middle. Just love the way she explains each step of the process and gives alternative ways to accomplish the same thing. I understand why comments are no longer avail, Maybe a forum for ones to post questions after? Merry Christmas to ALL!

I have taken many classes from Heartfelt Creation at expos. This is my first online class. I found it very informative. Demonstrating the border dies with your tips and tricks is just what I needed. I also like that I can rewatch this class any time. Thank you

I loved this class. So few companies offer how to make different variations with their products. That's what I love so much about Heartfelt. I have been wanting to make baskets for so long and wasn't sure how to do it. What a great way to showcase our flowers on the baskets and boxes, too. After watching Andrea it gave me so many ideas I didn't even think about before. I call myself a Heartfeltonian!!! Because I am so addicted!! Thank you for the great class!!

Another great class!!!! What a neat gift idea...who would not love a mini album in its own little gift box.? I plan to do at least a couple to have on hand to take to friends in the hospital. I will stamp encouraging verses in the windows and they can put in their favorite pictures when they get home.

What a great class! Thanks to Emma Jane (and Tracy!) for the great class. I can't wait to get started on the umbrella! Also again thanks for the generous $15 off the class and free dauber offer with $100 order. So nice. I really enjoy all of the class comments and suggestions! Such a great teacher and I learn so much. This was my second on-line class and signing up for the lilac class today! Cannot wait to see next week's new offering! Happy spring! Beth

I found this class exceptional to understand how all the new dies work. The album is beautiful and I hope I can make mine look as great as Emma Lou’s. But even for special cards I have so many ideas floating around in my head now to enjoy making unique and fun surprises.

We had some tech. problems, but when it was up running it was wonderful, and Emma Lou, describe it so clearly, so anyone can follow, I also took the first class, and I will be taking other classes as well if offered, your product is top nots, I became a Platinum member, can't get enough of your products, I have told my friends about your company, keep up the good work, and your Customer Service is so great ( you all are, you care about other people so much ) Thanks again from a very happy Customer.

If you're an old hand with flip fold albums you probably don't NEED this class. But you'll likely enjoy it nonetheless. The insta album is a great product and I'm off to order more because it's super fun. If you're not an old pro with the flip n folds then hold on tight. The insta album offers all the fun and less than half the hassle. Grab a couple paper pads, cut some paper and prepare to put together a stunning album.

I have taken many of your on-line classes and this one was super filled with technique and ideas! Thank you for your superior teaching Emma Lou. I've used the border dies and loved them, but today I learned so much more and so many ways to continue to create totally new looks. Again, great company, great products and the best people; Emma Lou plus of of the staff - so nice and super helpful..

I would not have known what to do with any of this, if not for this class. I really enjoyed every moment . Emma Lou really explain what she was doing and how to fold all the inserts. Thanks so much, Emma Lou, you are my hero.

This was my first video class with Heartfelt Creations. Emma Lou is talented, creative and a wonderful instructor. She is clear and concise and smoothly answers questions throughout the video. Having the video to refer back to is a definite advantage. Although I have previously purchased other Heartfelt Creations stamp sets and the Flower Shaping Tool Kit, I haven't used them to their best potential and I never knew what to do with the Flower Shaping Mold or Stamens. Wonderful and highly recommended!

— Kathy Slawsky
Really loved this - especially the little center tricks and the blue roses that were my reason for buying that collection. Oh, and a free mold was pretty awesome!

— DONNA LEE PARKER
I came in late for the class but loved what I saw. I really liked the way the stamens were pulled through the center of the flowers. I can’t wait to watch the class from the beginning and make the album with the video. Thank you so much for providing such a great class with terrific ideas! Susan

What an informative class! I wasn't sure I would actually give this project a go, but I am so going to make a necklace! I just found Heartfelt Creations about 2 months ago, and I drooled over Emma Lou's necklaces. I was going to send an email to ask where she purchased her beautiful jewelry - until I saw the teaser for this class, and then I knew. Andrea is an excellent, talented teacher. Thank you, Heartfelt Creations, for always inspiring me with professional, high quality supplies and teachers.

Very inspirational. Love how it very calm and collected and easy step by step. Great on able to go back after class and rewatch the class. I will be practicing and learn more on creating my own rose. Practice makes perfect. :) These will look great on my card giving and gifts. Thank you for taking the time to show us all how to use this techniques.

This was such an enjoyable class. Thank you for speaking slowly and clearly and repeating yourself for those of us who get carried away and forget to look up!! I'm sure I'll make many more of this card style for quick and gorgeous cards. Thank you so much!! Heartfelt Creations has brought my card making to a whole new level!!

— Tina P
Thank you for bringing us wonderful ideas and inspiration so that we can share and bring joy to others. Breaking down the album page by page and offering suggestions for different decorations on each page really helps to develop a unique and varied album. This is especially important as sometimes it is hard to decorate in a "flat" manner as opposed to 3D with flowers etc. Emma Lou is always positive and interesting. Thank you.

Thank you Emma Lou for another great class. It was over so quickly I had more chocolate bar left. I get so intent on watching. Great tips on the flower making and placement.

We’ve missed having Angelica teach at our local scrapbook stores here, so it was especially nice to take your Facebook Live Class to stay connected. Emma Lou did an amazing job of keeping up with all of our questions and comments while demonstrating the projects. The class went at a nice pace and included helpful tips. We not only got a BONUS PROJECT, but also a special GIFT with purchase and $15 CREDIT. Great value and fun! I’m looking forward to more classes.

Emma Lou, Thank you for offering this online class and having it as a REPLAY. It takes me a few minutes to grasp the details of creating the flowers and a FAST paced class is not the learning environment that works for me. This is my first online class with you and I look forward to many more. Thanks for all of the TIPS and TECHNIQUES to make flower shaping not as intimidating as it looks. This class is EXCELLENT for a beginner!

This was my 2nd online class with Emma Lou. I loved it! I learned alot of great new techniques to try and was able to share a couple of my own with some of the newbies. I love sharing my time with all of the great crafters online during classes, so much fun. I can't wait for the next one!

Another great show, Andrea did an exceptional job of explaining each flower used, they were all beautiful, how to use the 3D Lacquer showed a great way to keep the flower from being damaged when worn on a necklace. I enjoyed this class very much. Now you have two stars to instruct your classes. I look forward to the next class on the vellum flowers.

This was my favorite class yet, but so far I've learned a lot from each class. I love the way Emma Lou teaches. She is very clear & never leaves you hanging. The products are top quality & I love that you can combine collections. Emma Lou shares her knowledge & then gives you so many options!! You are limited only by your imagination. Thank you for great products & for giving us the PDF files. Love that I can go back for times I need to jog my memory.

Very very impressive class. Realistic covering all the things that could go wrong and how to fix it when it does...which is soooo very helpful. Especially when you're not a seasoned crafter and somewhat scared to try things out. I truly enjoyed this class and can't wait to get started on my project. Thank you so much for all that you do and all the products you create.

So glad I registered for this class. As a beginner I learnt a great deal and it was very inspiring. My confidence to proceed with the insta album has increased immensely. Clear instructions, very helpful especially with the tips, the magnet placements and added tips on how to recover from any errors made along the way. Thank you so much! Blessings, Linda

What an amazing class. So many great ideas for border dies. They look simple to use but are a challenge and this class helped take away the worry of messing it up. I also learn something from your classes but this one was beyond my expectations in the content. Looking forward to more learning opportunities.
5/5
— Patricia Goggio
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
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!

Thank you so much for the class yesterday - I loved it! I wasn't prepared to cut the ovals from the main pages so I couldn't keep up with you, but I had everything else cut and ready. Did more coloring last night! I'm really looking forward to my beautiful finished project!
