It is so great that you offer these cases and then rerun. I have a pea brain and is the only way I can complete your designs. All my friends love the new ideas I show them. Thank you sooooooo much.

Wow!!! What I appreciate about Heartfelt Creations is that they don’t just sell us their products without a concern as to whether or not we use them. With all their classes and free videos, they work very hard at making sure that we know what we’re doing and get our money’s worth out of our supplies. Thanks Emma Lou for a fantastic class!!!

Great job Andrea. I enjoyed seeing how to apply the clear lacquer to the flowers. I would like to try to make some small rose earrings using this technique. I really enjoyed the class. It was very easy to follow along.

This is so exciting for me! I can't get to this years expo in NJ . I took 4 classes last year With Heartfelt, a wish fulfilled. To be able to take this class on line and future classes means the world to me. For you to be the teacher is just the best!! I'm already registered for the next class and excited to learn these techniques. I've shared this new offering with several friends so they can register too. I took your advice and watched first, now feel ready to tackle this project.

I thoroughly enjoyed this class taught by Andrea. She is AMAZING!! She explained and demonstrated what she was doing as she was teaching very well. I wanted to learn more about vellum flowers, and I learned a lot of tips while watching her video. She's a very thorough teacher. She made it fun also!! I would love to see more classes taught by Andrea!! I met Andrea and her husband, Benjamin, years ago at the Expo in Duluth and they have become my favorite couple with Heartfelt Creations. I love them!

First class and I loved it! I just watched and took notes so I could go at my own pace later while watching the class and being able to stop it and then go on. Very great suggestions for adding pockets and the decorative accents for those. Magnet placement a very big plus (even though I had worked with those before), you made it makes sense so much easier than any other instructions I had gotten. I would recommend your classes to everyone that loves creating beautiful albums. Thank you so much!

As always Emma Lou did a great job leading us through a lot of great techniques and ideas for using the window dies. Unfortunately, the pdf for the class was not helpful. It actually caused me much confusion. Tje pdf led me to believe we were going to actually make the cards while the class name indicated techniques. I did learn alot and enjoyed the class. Thanks for offering the classes and not just selling your product.

Another 5 heart show, when Emma Lou showed the flowers to be made I thought #7 would be the first choice, well it was, but as I said each flower was just gorgeous & depending on what you were going to use it for #1, 2 or whichever would be a first choice. Emma Lou definitely has a way of demonstrating the different techniques that make them look so much easier than you expect it to be. I've taken all the classes & have gotten so many new & different ideas while learning to use new techniques.

Thank you so much, it’s nice to sit at home and be able to take a class!! I don’t live close to the craf5 shows and I care for my parents. This was very informative and Andrea did a wonderful job presenting it. The flowers were just fabulous and the necklaces were stunning!!! I will be giving this a try!! Love I can go back and review the video and follow along at my pace!! Thank you again for your Great crafting skills!!!

The Insta Album class was such a great learning experience. Such great techniques were discussed and many great suggestions also came from other class attendants. Learning to place the magnets, how to do the pocket inserts and how to embellish using all the little bits and pieces were just some of the ah-ha moments of this class. I highly recommend this and any of the classes. They have all been excellent and you can view them as often as you like.

This was an awesome class - there were problems with our server so missed the live show earlier today. Having said that, I have learnt how to figure out the number of layers to make each of the roses - I will never forget 3 for the base! and the best thing I learnt was how to create the bud, I had mistakingly put petals side by side rather than across from each other - now I know - I will never get a flat cone again! I think I have a new found friend - Emma Lou - this class was easy to follow, Thank You

I always enjoy Andreas classes. She is always so informative. This class covers a lot of information as there is actually four projects completed. She also covers flower shaping of pointsettias.

I loved this class. Andrea demonstrated and carefully explained all the steps and possible alternatives to making these love necklaces.. I had been toying with the idea of making jewelry from my die cut flowers, but wondered how to make them sturdy enough to make them last and be worth the effort. Andrea gave me the solution with the 3D Crystal Lacquer. Can't wait to try it! Purchased some of the supplies today and will order what I couldn't find in town. I'm excited to make my first necklace.

What an interesting class. Even if I don't make an album there are lots of things in the class and the tips to make some interesting cards. I love Andrea and the way she teaches. So easy talking and she can make a mistake, which we all do, so she warns us about it and how to fix it. Thanks Andrea for another great class.

Well it is not hard to write a review when such perfection is the standard for Emma Lou. She is an outstanding instructor and encourage all who are in her classes.If you have not taken the online class these classes are full with tips and techniques , PDF files, and you can review the class as many times you so desire. Exceptional value. I now have taken all the online classes and signed up for the November class. Any one on the fence jump on over and learn what a fantastic experience this is. Helen

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!

Love the Heartfelt Creation classes. Great instructions, and you are able to ask questions as you learn. EmmaLou shows us new techniques in assembling, inking, and water coloring. Very helpful for beginners, and even a few AHHH- Haaa moments for long time crafters.

I have taken many classes at craft stores, but this is so superior. The camera allowed me to see the close up shots of "how to" which isn't always easy to do within a group. This is my first Heartfelt Creations class although I have recently begun purchasing materials from your company. Mary Lou presents information in a very effective manner at what I think is the appropriate pace. I am looking forward to attending more classes throughout the year, Thanks

What a wonderful class. I learned a lot about colouring which I really needed. It was an interesting and thoroughly enjoyable afternoon learning many tips and tricks to help make these card/booklets stunning. Thank you for the coupon for the sponge daubers. I used mine right away with a small order. I am so glad that I discovered Heartfelt Creations as I love all the stamps and dies and have watched numerous videos on how to use them to make fabulous cards, scrapbooking pages and booklets. I am very happy!

I had recently watched your tutorial video on creating dimensional roses. This video helped a lot - my roses improved 100%. But the class had even more information about how to make the rosebuds that I've found so helpful. It was also very valuable to learn the correct ratio of sizes of petals to use for the different sizes of roses. Emma Lou is an excellent teacher and explains each step very clearly.

When I first saw this beautiful flowering umbrella project, I thought it would be too difficult to make, but after Emma Lou broke it all down, I thought I would definitely give it a go. The step-by-step explanation and demonstration was so informative and Emma Lou is a perfect instructor! I can’t wait to see how my project turns out!

Loved the class! Would have liked a file of the products shown in the class today so I don't have to watch a 2 hour presentation over and over to recreate the cards. Thanks, Emma Lou!

Loved this class. It was so informative on how to color the stamps. I struggle with getting mine to look real and with Emma Lou's help I now see how to put the depth in that is needed. I enjoy seeing the various samples at the end, always gives me some more inspiration to create my own. Looking forward to the next class.

I learn so many great concepts from online classes. I feel as if I am sitting in the classroom with Emma Lou and Heartfelt Creations. The classes are educational and I can see step by step along the way how to create beautiful cards and crafts. I have taken classes with Heartfelt at Expos and they are great. Online classes however, allow me to review the class as many times as I need and the team at Heartfelt is easily accessible to answer questions I have during and after class. Thank you Heartfelt!

Andrea, I so enjoyed this class with you. You are calm, soft spoken & easy to follow. You helped take the mystery out of velum flowers & had some very helpful tips. I always learn something new from every class which is why I keep taking them. Heartfelt family is one of the very best in the crafting industry. Attention to everything from customer care to products is outstanding. I love that I can go back & watch my classes again. Andrea, you did a wonderful job. Thank you. I'll be back.

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!

Another great class!!!! What a neat gift idea...who would not love a mini album in its own little gift box.? I plan to do at least a couple to have on hand to take to friends in the hospital. I will stamp encouraging verses in the windows and they can put in their favorite pictures when they get home.

I had a wonderful time watching this class and chatting with the other people taking the class. Between the .pdf and the class I learned it is not such a daunting task to decorate many heartfelt albums for my photos, recipies, keepsakes, etc. The class gave me the confidence I needed to comfortably decorate my albums using all the Heartfelt Creations products (including glitter!). I just can't think of anything more that can be improved upon. It's all fun, creative and inspirational!

Tons of great ideas on how to use the border dies. The focus is on layering dies, mixing and matching dies to make very delicate borders. Emma Lou is responsive to questions and creates a community of learners in two hours. Well worth the cost!
