Another stellar class! Easel cards I am familiar with, but learned all about cascading flowers. Always something to learn. The other two cards were new to me and fantastic. Emma Lou is such a great teacher, I feel like I can make the cards like a pro. Thanks!

Another great class with Emma Lou. Working with vellum is a little intimidating for me, so I am very happy with what I learned in this class. She (Emma Lou) breaks everything down to make it so much easier to understand how to do. I love these classes (this was my 9th). I can't wait for the next class for all the tips and tricks that I know I will learn.

Emma Lou you are so right! You never know what is going on in someone's life. So thank you for saying that & for being an inspiration to all us crafters & for taking us to our happy place!! On Jan. 28, I lost my daddy. I can't stop thinking about him. Life has been so hard since but crafting helps me so much! I love your classes. This was my 5th class & you are always amazing! I am looking forward to the lush lilac class.I love that set

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.

I really enjoyed this class, it seemed with each flower you thought it was the prettiest, however, another beautiful one followed until the end with the beautiful blue carnation. Really couldn't say which was the favorite as the lipstick red was outstanding & when Emma Lou showed the buds grouped together, oh such a gorgeous card. Each class has offered something different, the first two on albums were awesome, but then the classic rose shouted "See Me", & now the Carnation at least five ways to awe you.

I loved this class. I bought several albums and inserts at a show in Grapevine or Tulsa, can't remember which, but they have been sitting in the closet calling to be used. I did not know where to start. This class was great! I can now pull one of the albums off the shelf and starting adding the inserts. I will watch the class how to decorate it after I get the inserts attached. Very good class, clear instructions and I like that I can go back and watch again for something I did not quite get. Thank you!

This vellum class was excellent. My first class from Andrea, and she was so easy to follow along, explaining each step. This was my second vellum class, and peony class, and I can hardly wait to try the peony with all the stamens and using the golf tool to add texture to the bottom layers of the flower. The project was beautiful -- loved the distressing of the papers, paper colors, and Andrea's reasoning for flower placement. This would make a WONDERFUL gift if you could make yourself give it away.

loved the class. My favorite was the folios as you can use them separately for other projects and by themselves. Love the class as always. Great job Emma Lou. And thank you heartfelt for all the classes on facebook during this shut down session. I have been house bound alone for nine weeks now. Too long in Texas.

This class was an absolute delight. I listened all the way and then sat down to work. It turned out beautiful. Not perfect, but really pretty. I shall make a couple more tomorrow and let my fantasy take over. Thank you Emma Lou for doing such an excellent job i teaching. I thoroughly enjoyed myself, but not only that - I also learned a lot. That was money well spent. Thank you .

Once again - a successful, educational class. I learned some great new ideas and tips for decorating the Flip-Fold Albums. You are a gifted teacher, and make a project like this seem manageable.

Another great class! For this class I learned so much about using the combination of different inks together which I would not have thought of. It's amazing how Emma Lou showed us so many different ways to use to the large and small die for the Wild Rose and how to shape the flowers. This was a truly a great class and things are explained in such an easy way. I also like that we can ask questions during the video.

Hi EmmaLou I have only recently discovered Heartfelt creations and have watched many inspiring videos. However this class has been the most exciting because all the dies have arrived today and at the weekend I can put into practice the ideas I have learnt from today's class. Thank you for making these classes available for your fans from around the world, I live in Australia and having these classes online is like having a one to one teacher pupil session. Once again thank you

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.

Absolutely wonderful class, I learned lots of great tips and ways to use my dies. Your company is such an inspiration, I like to make cards for my ill patients, I can't describe in words the emotions they display when they get a beautiful card made with your products and the enjoyment I get when it touches their hearts in such a deep way. I am often told by my patients these are the moments they will treasure to know that someone other than family thought enough about them to try and brighten their day.

What a fantastic class this was! Your explanations are so easy to follow along and I feel so much more confident now in doing my 8X8 album. I enjoyed seeing the different ways to use the tags and dies. Taking these classes also give me ideas on how to uses these in my card making. Thank you for this wonderful and informative class and will be looking forward to taking many more.

Thank you so much for your online class. I found all the little hints very helpful, particularly the ones about folding the inserts. I will have to go back and watch the video again several times, which is tremendously helpful to have. You do a great job of explaining things. I did notice that you attached some of the inserts by securing a tab to the back of the page while other inserts you just glued to the front of the page. I was wondering why you glued to the back of the page vs the front.

As always I learn so much from these classes. They are excellent for a beginner all the way up to an experience card maker. Emma Lou explains in a easy way to understand and great at answering all the questions that are asked. I learned something new on each of the cards that were made during this class.I especially enjoyed learning how to do the easel card. So many good tips. Thank you Emma Lou for another great class.

This class was AWESOME! I know I can make this project now, but what struck me the most was Emma Lou didn’t move on to the next step until everyone’s questions were answered. She seems to get much joy from teaching and she’s GOOD at it! Every step of the project was broken down and thoroughly explained. Go ahead and treat yourself! Spend 2 hours with Emma Lou and the creative ladies who participate. This class has jump started my creativity and made me brave!! Many crafty hugs, Elaine

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

Once again, Emma Lou, a great class. So worth the money, You made creating shadow boxes look so easy and you removed the intimidation that I was feeling about trying one of them. I am also looking forward to the next class using the border dies. I would definitely recommend your classes to everyone.

I wasn't sure whether I would like creating with foam. Andrea made it look so easy. It gave me the confidence to to give it a try. I was surprised at how easily she was able to shape the classic rose bud with the foam paper. Thanks for all of the tips. Great class as always.

The Elegant and Versatile Ways to use Border Dies class was terrific! I didn't realize how many mix and match possibilities these dies offer! I appreciate the instructions on using these dies to create my own cards and not limiting myself to the foldout cards. I'll be watching this video repeatedly!

Heartfelt Creations flowers are beautiful but can get expensive to mail due to not being flat. This class shows how to use the gorgeous paper collections with the window dies and card bases to make beautiful cards that can mail as it or be embellished with flowers. This way you can also mail flat cards. Emma Lou shows how to not only cut with the dies, but also how to emboss with them. She shows how to mix and match pieces from different die sets to make styles all your own. If you are ready to go beyond flowers to try new card styles, this is the class for you.
