I love Heartfelt creations. The class was very well done and now I can practice. This was my first class and really enjoyed it. Thanks

Every time I take a class I learn so much. I never thought that I would be able to do any of the things that you show until I took you class. You make everything so easy to do. I never thought that I would be able to color until I watched this class. I can't thank you enough. The last class that I toke was the shaker card and I made one for my mothers 90th birthday party and it was a hit. I had everyone sign the tags that were in the middle of the book.

Another great class, learning how to use the technique of adding the stamens on the flowers just make the flowers pop out on the card. I always learn new ideas or techniques when I take these classes & Emma Lou you make it down to earth & understandable to everyone. The lilac collection is one of my favorite collections as reminds me of growing up with lilacs in the backyard & using them in our May Baskets, in Kansas it was usually late April or May when lilacs bloomed. A great class.

Thanks Emma Lou for another great class. There is always something new to learn in your classes. I can't wait for the next class to see what you are going to teach us. I love all your products as they are so versatile. You can use them in so many different ways. Keep up the good work.

This was a nice session and I got a lot of tips and ideas. I did fine some repetitive, ie piercing the flowers to add stamens each time.

Wow, what a great class on making the insta-album. Love all the creativity and ideas presented. The pocket dies are a big help in creating hideaways for pictures. Thank you for making it look so easy. Eager to get started on one.

It was a pleasure to learn how to make this lovely project. Emma Lou made it easy to follow along. I learned some new tips and tricks for making the slider. I never would have thought of that. It was made so clear. I know that when I start my project I will have the same lovely card. Thanks so much for a Great Class.

I'm new to these classes. Appreciate the tips on the stamens - I bought them about a year ago and didn't know what to do with them. Thanks. I missed Heartfelt Creations at the Akron Expo last year. Hope you are there this year.

Another fabulous class and I particularly enjoyed Emma Lou demonstrating the colouring techniques they were so very helpful. Those markers are awesome! Getting the behind the scenes tips gives us crafters confidence to create beauty beyond our wildest dreams. I loved this class it was full of informative tricks enabling everyone to make their world and beyond a more beautiful place.

Another great class experience. Love the idea of using a sponge to add glue when glittering/embossing intricate pieces. I can see a camp themed book using the bear collection, bees and smores in the shaker. Also using frolicking frosty and snow flakes. Gonna need a LOT of shadow boxes.

I loved learning the different techniques and will definitely use them in my crafting. I live in a retirement community of 80 residents and we have a birthday party once a month for all of the residents that have birthdays that month. I make a special card for every resident. I am known as the "card lady" and nobody throws my cards away. I plan on using many of these techniques on my future cards. Thank you SO much for sharing! Pat

Another inspiring and informative class - thank you Emma Lou. I am amazed how you manage to remain cool calm and collected when you make a mistake on camera - you truly have special skills! It was great to see your "mistake creation" transform into a beautiful creation - almost like it was meant to be. I have taken all of the classes so far and have enjoyed each one, and the bonus is there is no more leaving stuff behind at classes as I am sitting just where my crafting stash is.

I am brand new to this type of paper-crafting. I just bought my first die cutter, but was only using it for felt crafts. Then, I stumbled onto Heartfelt Creations and my whole world has opened up! The online classes are a great value for me since I know NOTHING!! ;) Emma Lou is a fabulous teacher and the projects have taught me so much and given me a great jumping off point for future crafting. Much love and many blessings- Mendy

As usual a great class, so many ideas & as usual Emma Lou explains everything with a great candor that is entertaining & instructive, always brings the details out that help even the most new crafter up to the more experienced. I especially enjoyed the dogwood flowers & how to make them to use in all kinds of ways, they would make a beautiful centerpiece for Easter. The dogwood collection is one of my favorites & I have a bunch cut & ready for next project, they & roses are used in many ways.

Love the class because: I can always use more coloring tips : Give options on using different media that you are comfortable with OR to try new ones: I believe I can now make shadow boxes: I like how you use pieces from previous collections: always give encouragement and last but not least you can always revisit your class for more information and go step by step instructions. ( needed this option today as there were many interruptions. My Chihuahua had surgery on her knee 1 week ago) Thank you

I LOVE Heartfelt Creation classes. I only wish I started watching them when you began. I always pick up tips for making each project that I didn't know. I love being able to ask questions. The classes are a great way to learn how to do new projects. Some of us can't not attend classes. These make it easy to watch. I love re watching. You get a $15.00 discount and during the class you are give another coupon for something in the store. I get so inspired to create beautiful projects.

Loved the class. I appreciate seeing Emma Lou's creativity because it gives me ideas. Also, the classes take the edge off and the home project is not so intimidating. Also, I had a AH-HA moment when she advised how to cover paper mistakes and sharing crafting ideas with others.

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.

Class was great....I have taken all the classes and have learned something from each one. Today I played with coloring...tried my watercolor pencils...got so engrossed that I lost track of time...my husband made his own dinner! Plan on enrolling in the next class, have been trying to figure out how to make that flower pot since I got the Petunia collection. Keep up the good work!

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!

This was my first time taking an online class, although I have seen videos online: it’s great being able to interact with Emma Lou, great personality and kind heart. Loved all the techniques you taught, and all the flowers were my favorite: Set up a play date with friends, on February 17 to create beautiful flowers. Your a great teacher with a great heart, may God continue to bless you and your love ones. I will always support a family business. It was a pleasure spending time with and Tracy on the back.

Great project & the paper selection was awesome. I really appreciate Heartfelt Creations having these on-line classes since I am not able to attend many expos. I have taken almost all of these on-line classes & I noticed this is the first time I felt like Emma Lou seemed rushed to get finished but then finished early we all have times like that. Would it be possible to send the viewers an update to this class to cover where you use the small tags or maybe I just missed that. Thank you.

Class was great! Appreciated your calmness and humor during the computer glitch. The pace of the class was excellent thanks to the PDF. Thanks for explaining how to prepare other paper packs to use for flip folds. I loved the coupon and free die. That explains my fun, big order. Can't wait for next class. Love to all. Bonnie

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 has made my Arizona morning even more beautiful! I don't know when I have been more excited and nervous. Heartfelt Creations has brought great joy to my 77 years. Wish I were younger so I could see more of your future creative years. God bless your whole family staff glad you are there for we crafters. Thanks from, Coye in Glendale, Arizona.....Bye.

Thank you Emma Lou for sharing tips and tricks once again. The wealth of knowledge you share is priceless. My particular favourite was the peach flowers and loved how you shaped them. I loved all the different ways to shape the flowers and I am keen to experiment the techniques shown today with other flowers. All the best for the birth of your baby and I do wonder if it will arrive with a crafting tool already in its tiny hand. Thank you again Rachel

Absolutely loved all of the flowers and technique tips. Presentation and explanations were superb with viewer questions being answered throughout the class. I have enjoyed my previous in person classes, but having the option to review the video for something you missed or didn't remember just takes the class to another level. Will definitely take other online classes. Thank you to everyone at Heartfelt for creating wonderful products that we can share with others.

Another great class! Good idea about using the chipboard backing and how to reinforce it. Inspiring ideas for using some of the lace borders and loved watching you shape and make the flowers--small, medium and large--especially the roses. I'm finding that the more I make the better I get at it. Thanks again for sharing your creativity!
