I am so glad that I did not miss this class. I have done these cards but no matter, you ALWAYS learn something new. I happened to have all my colored pencils out the other day when I was majorly cleaning my studio and ended up putting them back because I never knew how to use them correctly. Well, today I learned a lot! So after the class, out they came and I now have new "toys"! Ha!!! I can't wait to see what I can learn next time! Thank you Emma Lou

Love, love love this class. I have enjoyed six classes but this is my favorite. I love the pictures are hidden and placed in a small beautiful container that can stay out on any table. Emma Lou you did an excellent job of teaching as always. Thank you Heartfelt for all you do for us crafters. My heartfelt thanks. Darlene

I loved taking the class. Emma Lou was so friendly and helpful in explaining everything. I liked how she showed all the steps and demonstrated all of them. Itwas nice to see her make a mistake and then what she did to fix it. This was very helpful. The one thing that might be a little bit easier to see the demonstrations, is if the camera was maybe from above, looking down over the project. Sometimes it was alittle hard to see when the camera was from the side. I wanted to learn how to use the foam sheet.

Loved this class. I want to give this to my grandson and his wife who will be married 10 years the end of this month and are renewing their vows. I think this will be something very special for them. Thank you for bringing us these wonderful classes. Love from Melodie

As Usual I enjoyed the class, I was especially interested in the Mousse application, now can use the colors I have with more confidence, also the texture medium was very interesting. Emma Lou always explains things very well & with watching the video I can pick up some I may have missed. Also the vellum techniques were good to watch, as I like to use vellum for quite a few flowers, esp dogwood blossoms. Another great class.

I’m amazed how you can take some of what I already know and take it to an even greater level. This album is awesome. So looking forward to your next class. I don’t usually like making boxes or baskets. But these are extraordinary. Already marked my calendar. ????????❤️

The class was amazing . Very enjoyable looking forward to making my book

Wonderful class! I feel the most innovative ideas were showing that the album basic shape can be made from layers of your regular card stock thereby making it any size you wish. Also, the layered effects of both the lace medallions and the shakers were a terrific idea and I'm greatly appreciative of your sharing of these ideas. Heartfelt Creations can't be beat for beauty in art and kindness in heart!! Thanks so much.

Love this class and thank you Emma Lou and all the staff who worked so hard to cover all the details! I plan to use the Festive Holly collection with some from Winter's Eve. I have already pre-matched my papers but it would really help to see exactly where the papers are used in the album (because it is so complex). I would love to see an extra pdf of the completed album pages so I can tell if I am selecting a design that will translate well. If you could superimpose the page nbr/side on top that helps.

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.

This is my first class. I enjoyed it but went way to fast for me. I love the pdf file to help with papers. Would be nice if could list the name of card so can find directions on blog and what dies by paper. Especially for new members. Thank you

I've had a couple of the border die sets for almost a year, but haven't used them very much. I guess I felt a little uncomfortable with the detailed edges, but this class has given me lots of tips, tools and inspiration. I can't wait to use some of these techniques on Christmas cards! Thanks so much for all the effort that goes into hosting such a successful class.

I really enjoyed the Elegant Vellum Flowers On Home Décor class. I learned so many new things to do with flower shaping and how to use the stamens. Andrea explained everything she was doing so well so it was easy to understand and see. Great class and will definitely will be doing more in the future.

This was a great class. Emma Lou showed us a great way to put the wisteria flowers together. I always loved the flowers but was intimidated by the intricacies. Not anymore!! Also, always appreciate the extra tips and techniques she gives us. Another great class, thank you so much Emma Lou and Heartfelt Creations!

I enjoyed the class very much. The comments and suggestions from fellow crafters were enlightening, and added another dimension of learning. Although it was difficult to keep a steady media stream for viewing the live session, knowing I can go back and re-watch the entire class again certainly alleviates the stress of missing portions of the how-to class. I can't wait to get started on my Shadow Box Mini Album today. Thank You for sharing your talent. Looking forward to the Carnation class next month.

It took me a while to finish this class, as I finally had some free time to work on it. Thank goodness for replay!!! One of the things I love about Heartfelt, that your classes are saved and you can go back and watch, rewatch, pause as you need. I completed all three cards, and had a blast crafting.

Andrea, I so enjoyed this class with you. You are calm, soft spoken & easy to follow. You helped take the mystery out of velum flowers & had some very helpful tips. I always learn something new from every class which is why I keep taking them. Heartfelt family is one of the very best in the crafting industry. Attention to everything from customer care to products is outstanding. I love that I can go back & watch my classes again. Andrea, you did a wonderful job. Thank you. I'll be back.

This is such a gorgeous and unique card. I am looking forward to sending it for special occasions. Emma Lou took us carefully through the steps. She was easy to follow allowinf a beginner to be able to make this card. These classes open up a new level of creativity and bring my crafting such beauty and ingenuity. Because of you, I look good. Thank you for your continued excellence.

This was my first online class and I just loved it.Seeing first hand how flowers and cards are created gives little tips that may not normally be picked up in instructions!! I LOVED the hydranga card with the bird cage but also seeing how to use the wired stamens was huge for me!! Thanks so much for offering these classes and I will be doing more for sure.

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!!

Thought class was excellent. Took the Rose making class at Mega Meet in Novi, but it was first class, and I was newbie. I liked the color selection for rose, learning how many petals to use for flowers, how to use the stylist to shape the flower. Several tips: bud - stamping on outside, smaller stylist tip gives more wrinkled petals, how smart to color backs of petals, using sponge to apply glue for glittering.. Entire class was so helpful. I have already watched it three times !!!! THANK YOU

The Decorative Floral Photo Frame was an excellent class. Andrea showed us new ways to use the Tulip stamps and dies to make beautiful roses. This will be one of the videos that I refer back to many times for inspiration. Thank You Heartfelt Creations for providing us another class for inspiration.

This class was perfect, with the step by step instruction anyone could make these beautiful baskets. I love how they went together so nicely. Heartfelt really does a great job with all of the dies and paper to make these elegant boxes and baskets. Having the class video to watch anytime and at my own pace is a real bonus. Thank you Emma Lou for this wonderful class.

As I attend more of these classes, I feel more comfortable in my own crafting skills, and that make me want to do even more. It is great to see Emma Lou and watch, listen and learn. To see new names, and familiar names of fellow crafters and know for the next 2 hours we will be sharing, laughing, and learning! There is no end to learning new ideas and sharing with others!
