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!

This class was really amazing. All the boxes are so beautiful and Emma made it look so easy. I have been making roses for a very long time - since the stamp/die came out as my very first purchase. The molds make is so much easier now than then but I learned so many new tips for making them more realistic. Thank you for giving us these classes.

This was my first online class with Emma Lou/heartfelt creations. I am very, very impressed! Emma Lou went at a perfect speed, was very knowledgeable, and was very thorough. I appreciated the opportunity of watching her demonstrating each step. I have learned so much from this class, thank you all! l will definitely be looking into further classes with heartfelt creations.

This class was amazing. Loved the layered hydrangea technique. Using the lilac molds to make hydrangeas, lilacs and hyacinths gives us more options.

If I could give you a 10 star rating, I would in a heartbeat! You present your classes in a concise, clear & enjoyable manner. I feel like I'm taking a class with friends. I always learn something new & this class was no different. Suggestions about making flatter flowers for mailing, using the guide for putting the stamens through, using the glue gun, pinching the flowers & so much more. I no longer feel intimidated & can just play. Looking forward to the Christmas class.

I love your classes. They are full of tips which I love. I really like being able to be in a class and yet be home with all my supplies. This class is great with the supplies list beforehand. We were able to get it all together before the class. Two thumbs up!!!

Once again an amazing class, I don’t know where I would be without your amazing products and classes. Heartfelt Creations make my card making experience so special, the dies, stamps and of course your demonstrators are awesome. Thank you

I thought the last class I did with Andrea was the best I had done but this class surpassed that. Maybe because I'm more into altered art than making cards! Most enjoyable class. Will definitely be taking the next one.

I thoroughly enjoyed this class for the gateway card mini album. In addition to the instructions for the album itself, I learned tips that I can incorporate into other craft projects. And I also enjoyed taking my second class with the sweet Andrea ????. All in all, it was a great experience.

I just finished the Decorating your Flip-Fold Album Pages class with Emma Lou and it was wonderful. I am definitely going back and ordering the previous class on how to add the the flip-folds to an album. Emma does a very thorough job of explaining everything.

Great class. Can't wait to get started. As always very informative and super ideas for gift giving. Thank you!!!

I totally loved this, my first class. Will definitely be attending more. Since I couldn’t wait till end of class to start my flowers, I tried to keep up, but all the colouring quickly got me behind. My suggestion would be for seasoned stampers, to put out the colouring list beforehand. That way we could play along with EmmaLou. Newbies could wait as before to color. Thanks for your consideration.

I am sure the class would have been wonderful had I been able to view it. I switched days off in order to do this class and an hour in after getting Nothing, I gave up. A big part of the experience is watching it live, getting to ask questions and also seeing and hearing the questions and answers from other attendees. Because I live in Canada the cost of my class is nearly 40.00 CA and I don't get to take advantage of the discounts because the shipping w ould cost more than the product..

Wow I learned a lot of ways to use my boarder dies thank you so much. Making my cards fancier is wonderful . I love taking your classes in the privacy of my own work shop and can go back and review it over and over again.

I can't believe that one 2 hour class could possibly be so full of information. I got so many new ideas for how to use these window dies, and was inspired to try other new things. I wasn't able to watch the class live because of a scheduling problem, but that was o.k. I don't feel like I missed much (except for the live interaction - that would have been nice). I highly encourage you to take any of the online courses that interest you. You will not regret it.

Emma, This was the best class ever. You have shown us so many ways to use the lilacs and stamens. Waiting for your shipment of lilac to come in so I can order them, missed them when they were in stock.. Love all your classes.

These classes are always informative and fun. It's refreshing to see/learn that things don't always go as planned - because, gee - that never happens to me! The inspiration was wonderful - now what's NEXT :-)

I love the Heartfelt Creations classes! Emmalou shows us many tips, and techniques to helps us take our crafting to a whole other level. I learned, color blending, shadow box folding, paper piecing, flower shaping, and what adhesives work best. All in one class. Being able to have questions answered online in real time is the best. Thank You for all you do.

— Laura Klaiber
This class, like all of your classes, shows so many tips and techniques that are so helpful, especially for those of us who are new to this. Learning how to make the flowers in different ways is such a bonus. Thank you for doing these classes. I learn so much from them.

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!!

I find myself sometimes looking at something and thinking that it is way to hard or too much work, although I am a detail person. I am so glad I took this class even if I was not at the live one. I am anxious to get going with some mini albums. I had no clue how nice those could be and the vellum flowers are beautiful. Heartfelt Creations is my favorite crafting company because of the way that a lot of the sets can be used together. Love the idea of making these for my all time favorite bible verses!

Such a wonderful class! Thank you Emma Lou for showing how to cut apart the gateway dies and use in so many different ways! I also loved using the vellum in different ways. As always, excellent teacher! Thank you!

This was a very interesting and informative class. Filled with great Ideas and Andrea is so sweet and a great teacher. I love the many ways to fill this album from pictures to souvenirs, pamphlets, etc. So, many ideas!

Wonderful class. I learned a lot about how to properly use the dies, and how to use them in various ways. My biggest moment was the die from the Ticket and Dies class as a belly band. Love the class.

— Shirley Dillon
This is my first online class and I have to admit I was a bit disappointed. The teacher was fabulous and she made a beautiful page with vellum flowers, but I really thought we were going to learn about vellum flowers and using vellum. Yes, we did learn about this one flower with vellum, but I really expected to see a variety of flowers with vellum, more tips and tricks and alternatives with using vellum. So I was left dissatisfied with my investment in this class.

This was my very first class and will someday be my first Insta-Album. Emmy Lou has an easygoing manner and somehow manages to patiently answer questions while she crafts. I’ve rewatched this class twice again and being able to do that may be one of the best values of the class for a beginner (like me). I hope that one day I will complete an album of my own; in the meantime I’ll go watch the class a few more times

This was my first on-line class with Heartfelt Creations. I took a card class at the Denver Expo and got hooked on your products there. I can’t wait to use the border die set I have and after taking the class I know I will need all of them! Very informative and the best part is that I can refer back to it whenever I need to.

I have taken every class from the beginning and I love them all. I learn something new every time. I never thought to make a paper frame but this is so smart I cannot wait to make my own. Thank you Heartfelt family for offering these on line classes.

I learned so much. And Emma Lou is a so kind and good teather. It is so fun to make so meny diferent flowers out of two stamps and dies. I love the Camelia carnation. Thank You!

— Kristin Ågheim
This was a fabulous class and essentially given away for free with the $15 free and the free die. I love Emma Lou's teaching style. I could follow everything and I'm excited to make this project and was originally going to do a Christmas album with the cardinal set. However, I have photos from Longwood gardens that beg to use the same Fairies set that Emma used. I'll be at a craft retreat next month and this will be my project! thanks! will be taking more classes for sure!

You taught a wonderful class. Your techniques are always worth watching; we always learn something new. I have not used stamens yet but now feel more confident in adding them to my flowers. I loved the hint to color the stamens with the colors used to color the flowers.

I, too, am a seasoned crafter, stamper, scrapbooker, and this was my first HC online class. I was blown away with the details provided, presented so personably as if we were chatting at a retreat! I didn’t know to take notes during the live cast and play later but that was a great idea! Can’t wait to finish my album. Oh no - another all-nighter coming up!

Emma Lou always does a great job presenting class. I think it is wonderful how she truly accommodates everyone regardless of your crafting experience. I was happy to learn more about the golf tools and how to use them properly. The flower making and coloring techniques are always a plus. Thanks again and best wishes for delivery of your baby boy!

This class has been the best ever. It helps me so much to watch and learn from Emma Lou and from the online comments. Our combined knowledge is amazing and very well worth the cost of the class. I always walk away inspired and want to put my life on hold and scrapbook! Love you all!
