Emma Lou, epxlqins things so they are easy to follow. I learned some new tips on cutting paper for my pages that can be used in other albums. I followed along while she made the album and am going to make one. What the nice thing is once you paid for the class it stays forever and you can back and use it as a reference. Great job Emma Lou.

Thank you for a wonderful class! Have been wanting to make a mini album and now I can watch at my leisure to create one at a later date. Emma Lou makes it so simple, but I am a lot slower, so this works perfectly!!

Thanks Emma Lou, you can make the flip fold insta album so much easier with your class. I taken a lot of your classes and with your step by step instructions, play overs or go back and play again you don’t miss a step. Today’s class was making the magnets easy for me I think I got it

I am so glad you offered this class to help clarify what to do with some of these dies. I was reluctant to buy the new square die collection that just came out that is similar to these because I was at a loss as to how to use them and I did not want to waste my money never using them and not knowing what to do. This class was really so great to help give me some ideas and not make it feel so overwhelming. As I watched the class I realized it is really simple but seemed very complicated before watching how it was done. I can see there are endless ways to use these dies to take crafting to the next level. I really love the Heartfelt Company because they support their customers to help them to get the most use out of their purchases. Thank you so much for such an informational packed class.

Another exquisite learning experience with Emma Lou! I have started the album and can’t wait to make the vellum flowers; they are so beautiful. These online classes are so informative and fun and I’ve learned so much and so many new techniques. I look forward to seeing what Emma Lou and her crew have in store for future classes.

I always learn so many new techniques from every class and fill uplifted, the coloring is something I enjoy learning about because I work to hard at it and you show it's really quite easy......... Because of you I have made so many things I thought I never could, thank you.

I think without this class I would have been really lost with these dies. Emma Lou explained in such a clear way as to what to do with each of these dies. I appreciate all the techniques that she shared with us. I love the way she showed us other ways to use some of the dies and the many helpful tips. This video was a great learning experience and I got so much out of it. Thanks for a tremendous class.

I have wanted to know how to do a tag album for some time. Now I know. However, I never thought of making shaker cards with the framed prints in your paper collections. Now I know that too and I can't wait to go through my papers to put some shaker cards together. I love the tag dies, I know I will get a lot of use from them, so glad there are two sizes so the tags can be backed with card stock and I don't have to "fussy cut". I am looking forward to the next class. Thank you

Another great class, I was especially interested in the use of the stamp paints, I have had some for a couple years & just didn't really know who to use them. Also the use of the little backings for the flowers is an idea that I had not used before, will make a difference in flowers with a deep throat. Even though I follow the videos given when the collections come out, I've learned something new each time. Thanks to Emma Lou for solving the little questions that come up on a live show.

I really enjoyed this class! What a wonderful way to use our Heartfelt products in a creatively different and beautiful way. I now have so many ideas I can’t wait to get started. Andrea is such a wonderful instructor, I hope to see her again soon with more of her amazing creations. Thank you for offering us these on-line classes as it is difficult for some of us to make it to the shows, please keep them coming!

Loved the class, someone must have read my request, would have liked a bit more detail on the single flower pendant. All told just great. The bonus she mentioned is that this year 2018 or next year?

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.

Heartfelt Creations is the perfect name for your company. Not only are the papers and dies beautiful, the cards that we make from them touch other people’s hearts. And the idea to send cards to your friend who lost her husband is wonderful. It won’t bring him back, of course, and the cards will probably make her cry, but it should also make her feel very loved. A wonderful idea. Another fabulous class. Many thanks.

This is my first online class and it was an amazing experience! I have purchased in the past the foldout cards and two sets of the edge dies and I have ruined so many cuts trying to get it straight and the image I wanted. Emma Lou made it so clear and I can’t wait to try what I learned. And I love the fact that I can watch the class live and it then becomes an online reference I can use whenever I need it! Thank you, Emma Lou!

I really enjoyed the class. By the end, I had a better understanding of how to create my Insta-album. I walked away with some great tricks and techniques. Emma lou was very friendly, and the class was interactive. I would highly recommend classes, as they are worth every penny, plus you can go back and watch them over and over and over again. Thank you Heartfelt Cteations. You are an amazing company!!!!

I thoroughly enjoyed this class and even though I have been taking classes at conventions and using HFC products for literally YEARS, there is always something new to learn. Using a hot glue gun to adhere the stamens was my new Ah Ha! moment during this class.. I will take the molds, stamps and dies with me to an upcoming craft retreat weekend in March and give everyone an Ohhh, Ahhh! moment when they peek at what I am working on. Thank you Emma Lou for another great class.

I loved making all the different types of flowers from one flower - the tulip. Who knew? Seeing how the Golf Tools could be used to add extra dimension will enable me to use them now. I loved the pencil grip tip to help to hold the tools better, too. I loved it all!

Emma Lou is such a breath of fresh air. She is such a great instructor and she keeps it real. We all make mistakes or have an occasional accident. She shows us how to make the best out of those times. it is so nice to get a different perspective on various techniques, embellishments, papers, etc. Emma Lou provides so much knowledge inspiration. I love seeing how to take a flower and make a totally different flower with it by using different shaping techniques. Looking forward to the October class. Congratulations on the new baby Emma Lou! Don't over do it.

Absolutely thoroughly enjoyed being able to see this class done live...even though it was a verrrrryy early wake up call...as living in Australia gives me very little opportunity to participate in an actual class in person. I enjoyed learning all the techniques and hints associated with this class and it has given me a new enthusiasm to start my crafting again.

I love the class! Andrea did an excellent job explaining everything and showing exactly how she did it. The flowers were so pretty and the colors were awesome when she put the board all together. I am getting excited about making one myself. Everyone at Heartfelt Creations are amazing people!! You Rock!!

Loved this class, just waiting for my cherry blossom flower set and mold. Making this for a memory album of my sister for another sister. Needed the push!!, and love the papers. Just now going to cut my papers now and get started, I'll be mindful of placing the magnets. Thank you.

Even though I had connectivity issues I saw enough to be so excited to learn a new way to use some the insert folders. These folders offer some of the best ways to add depth to my projects. I can add lots of photos along with inspirational clips. Emma Lou makes things look so easy and gives reassurance that we all can do these projects. Having these classes available for repeat viewing is exceptional. Thank you.

This is the second class I have taken and really love all the interaction from all the other crafters. Your classes are amazing and easy to follow, and love all the tips I have learnt so far...I think I have watched the Lush Lilac class 3 or 4 times already.....thanks for doing the classes.

I love all of Emma Lou's classes! She is an excellent teacher and you feel like she is right beside you. She moves at a good pace, and explains carefully. And you can always go back and watch again. This was my third class and I think the best one yet, although I say the same thing after each class. Don't hesitate to take a class, and make sure you prepare according to the PDF and you will have the most enjoyable two hours! Thanks Emma Lou! I am definitely signing up for the next carnation making class !

These classes are easy to follow and the directions are step by step so I can create the flowers that are almost as good as Emma Lou...with practice I will get there...it is so helpful to be able to go back... stop...pause....and to be able to watch again and again...unlimited. Have taken quite a few classes and have never been disappointed...always exceeds my expectations! Thank you so much!!

I love taking your classes, you get so much information from them. If you need to go back and look at something you can as many times as you like. I have taken classes at the Expos and they are good but I like the recorded ones so I can go back and get more information out of them. This classes has made making the albums so easy. Thank you, Bernice G

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

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.

I’ve just finished the live class for the flip fold albums. I loved it. It was great to see and have the steps broken down so now I can make albums that look beautiful and are so special. Thanks for making it easy as those inserts can look a little scary.
