I loved this class, especially showing how to cluster. I would like to see a class on making flower arrangements. Oh and another day of 50% off classes. Interested in the others like this one.

This was a great online class. I particularly liked that Emma began with blank, uncolored paper and build the roses. Step-by-step visuals are always superior to pdf files in my view. Watching her actually color, then shape the flowers with the tools was just like having her at my side. As crafters, we really do have to come up with something better than hot glue. Cool glue that holds like hot glue maybe? Viewing the various samples made with rose components was great inspiration.

This was an amazing class, I learned so much. I always question what colours I should put on the flowers, so this gave me some combinations to try. This was the third class I have taken and enjoyed it very much. I will definitely sign up for another class in the future.

Fabulous as always. Especially enjoy the color combining! Also - referencing the stylus size used is very helpful. Off to sign up for the May class.

I took this class in order to learn more about working with the foam flowers. I learned many new tips not the least of which is that I need a proper glue gun with temperature control and non-drip capabilities!! I have ordered foam sheets and after this class I am more excited and less afraid of working with the foam to make the flowers and leaves. So far every class I have taken has made me very positive toward making the items demonstrated and with adding touches of my own. I absolutely love these classes

Just watched the class, but for some reason was not able to comment during live episode. The large purple flower was my favorite of course but very excited to get started. 2nd class I've signed up for and loved them both. Great presentation by Emma Lou. Definitely a great class and can't wait to get started

The class is so inspiring and enchanting. Emma Lou has such a thoughtful process in her step-by-step instructions, I feel like I have all the tools at my fingertips to create magic with all the Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies, not just the Woodsy collection. I would recommend this online class in a heartbeat. I am so proud to say I am a Heartfelt Creations family member. Thank you for bringing us these amazing classes.

EXCELLENT!!!! Easy to follow tutorial that was well organized and fun. I have tried a hundred ways to include ribbon with the flowers,always putting it on last and never looking right to me. Thank you for showing me a different way!!!! I plan to do these in spring for the spring holidays in pastels. Great tutorial and my time well spent!

Finally replaying this class, now to get busy and probably will be looking at ordering more again! Love these classes and those that the ladies do through out weeks. One thing I like is when they give you advice on what color combinations work together, that's my challenge!

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 !

This class had directions that were clear and illustrated ways to handle more difficult issues in the flower sculpting. Andrea did a wonderful job and seemed to prepare for any issues that could possibly develop in the making of this necklace.

Another Great class from Emma Lou and the HC team. I learn so much at these classes, and get so many wonderful tips and shortcuts to making the beautiful flowers. The fact that it is live is great too. Not only do I learn from Emma Lou, but I also get ideas from all the other people watching the class too. The classes from Heartfelt Creations are sooo worth the money, and really don't cost a thing with all the extras you get. I am so hooked. I can't wait for the next one.

Emma Lou's carnation class was great! Carnations are one of my favorite flowers and Emma Lou makes it look so easy. I can't wait to rematch the class and start putting all my flower pieces together. They are all cut out and colored, and I have shaped some of them so far with the flower-shaping mold. Now I just need to finish shaping the rest and fire up my glue gun. The large carnation is my favorite!

I loved this class, it was not as difficult as I thought it would be, just time consuming. What a lovely decorative piece for my home and a fantastic gift. I also want to do one with the wedding paper for a bridal shower. Thank you so much for taking the tine to teach us new ways to use our dies and paper. I am one of those people that needs to see to do. I love your videos, such a help. The next class looks beautiful, can't wait and I would love to do more decorative pieces,

This was my first online class of any kind and I really enjoyed it. It was well worth the cost, which you end up getting back in product and discounts. Emma Lou keeps you engaged while she teaches you how to make the most beautiful album. You will definitely learn something new while having a great time.

LOVED this class! Emma Lou really took her time with explaining the techniques and it was very easy to understand and follow along!! Also, the volume, for me at least, seemed to be fixed...the first class I took, the volume kept cutting out, so not sure what you did different, but it seemed much improved!! I was very grateful that Emma Lou took her time and went step by step, and of course, the product is always stellar!! Thanks again, Katrina

What a great class! At first the project looked very difficult to do but the way Emma Lou explains how to do each step it was quite easy to follow along. I like how Emma Lou and Tracy answer the verious questions people ask during the video. I find all the useful tips to be a great help. I learn to do so much from these classes and I am really looking forward to the future classes.

Andrea is a wonderful, patience teacher. I enjoyed this class, it was relaxing and great ideas and tips. This class took my fears and frustration away with working with Vellum. In the past I have had multiple problems with working with the vellum. The project and especially the flowers are absolutely gorgeous. This my 10th class.

This was my first online class and I really enjoyed it. Emma Lou and the Heartfelt crew are so inviting, informative and encouraging. The instructions were delivered in a warm, friendly manner allowing for beginners to experienced crafter's skills. It felt like a cozy gathering with your good friends where you all got to learn fun new things. Thank you! I'm looking forward to taking more classes, now.

You earned a 5-heart rating from me today! This was my first online crafts class; it won't be the last I take from HC ! Kudos to Emma Lou--you are a star! Despite minor technical difficulties, loved how you kept the class moving along. I enjoyed the comparison of the original book to the new one underway, and the page-by-page review of embellies at the end was excellent as a wrap-up and final review of how the finished pages look. Thanks for the experience, and can't wait for my order to arrive!

What a wonderful class. I was super excited to finally learn how to make the cascading wisterias! Thank you Emma Lou for showing us the "triangle" to help us to place the flowers to make the cascading wisteria. It was wonderful to learn a couple of new card styles as well. I enjoy watching the live classes due to the interaction with Emma Lou and other crafters, but I mostly look forward to replaying the video while I am making the cards - the pause button is my favorite! Thank you Emma Lou and to the production team for bringing us these classes!
