I absolutely love the sweet tea collection. I especially wanted to see more on the velum how to color it color it, if you can use the molds et cetera. I did not craft along because I like to watch it 1st and then I will watch it a second time and craft along the 2nd time I will be doing that later today. Thank you so much

Emma Lou and her team are doing a fantastic job of showing how to best use the beautiful Heartfelt papers and flowers. Emma is endlessly patient and always interested in what the students ask. She addresses questions asked by students during the online class. Very good course and instructor. Looking forward to the next one.

Wow, wow, what an amazing class, I could listen to Andrea all day, she has such a clear voice. Magical class, I have started cutting out all the bits. I love the vellum flowers, I just love the whole class. Thank you all so much for doing these classes. Looking forward to the next amazing class.

The instructions were AMAZING!  Very direct, and detailed enough that anyone could follow along.  I now feel VERY confident that I could make these roses, and add that extra special touch to my cards, to make them into real pieces of art.  Loved the class, looking forward to the next online class

I did not give 5 hearts only because of the tech problems. My screen would continue to freeze after the "fix".A suggestion might be for an assistant so Emma Lou can stayed focused. I am sure that it must be very difficult to craft within a time frame live and be monitoring the questions and comments. The ability to ask questions was the selling point for me. I feel like I did not get much time to do that.Maybe Q/A after for a time? Maybe send in Qs prior? Follow up video for Q/A? Collection of Q/A into pd

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.

Loved seeing just how to make those gorgeous roses. Now if I can remember 3 large petal layers and 2 small petal layers make the eye popping large roses. Thanks for the close up of Emma Lou making the rose bud. Happy Crafting!

This was the first class for me and it was just awesome! And this will not be my last on-line class. Emma Lou did a marvelous presentation. The boxes are so beautiful as are the flowers and butterflies. I appreciate that the on-line classes can be viewed over and over. Thank you Emma Lou. And thank you also goes to the team for the preprep, sound and the camera work. Now off to work on my boxes!

The was my very first class that I have ever taken with Heartfelt. I am new to the crafting world and didn’t think that I could make theses beautiful flowers. But I learned so much from just one class! I am so thrilled that I signed up for it. It was definitely worth it! I am looking forward to making these flowers and taking more classes. Thanks again it was filled with a lot of useful information!

I thought this class was awful....sorry. Certainly not worth 30.00. I could never follow what page she was on. In the cutting guide, we marked our cuts such as 6b, 5 a, and so forth, then they were never referred to. She just kept flipping pages and saying put this here. What, where? It was giving me so much grief, I just turned it off and did my own design. Is there any way to get a refund. I know I will never pay again when there are numerous free tutorials that are so much better.

Great class! I had just finished a birthday card for my son using this set. This class gave me so many new ideas for the next cards I need to make for two more sons in October. Lots of great tips and cute ideas I had not thought of. Thanks for the wonderful class and I can't wait until the next one!

This was my first ‘live’ class and Andrea did such a great job. I love seeing projects that make you think outside of the box and all three of these did just that! She gave great detailed instructions and the little tips you get along the way are so helpful! Loved it!

This was my first Online Live Class. I truly loved the class. I learned so much about coloring and shaping the flowers then adding the lacquer and extras like glitter and prills. Andrea did a great job of explaining the various techniques.

Fantastic class! Love all of the techniques that were shown. I especially liked the watercolor technique. Also how to use your shadowboxes. I love how you broke down the steps so that they were not overwhelming. And above all - I appreciated the pace of the class - it was not rushed! I will be making these for my children ( I have 5) and my mother. And one for myself! Looking forward to taking more classes in the future.

The Decorative Floral Photo Frame was an excellent class. Andrea showed us new ways to use the Tulip stamps and dies to make beautiful roses. This will be one of the videos that I refer back to many times for inspiration. Thank You Heartfelt Creations for providing us another class for inspiration.

I absolutely loved this album. Andrea did a fabulous job teaching and explaining the steps. I can see making multiples of this album for my photos as well as gifts. These classes keep me inspired and crafting. I am so thankful for these classes that we can rewatch each time we craft. Thank you for the tips and tricks to making crafting enjoyable.

Emma Lou, this class was amazing! It was my first time watching as an Insider member. (I first joined as a Platinum member.) I just sat back and really enjoyed watching you create three masterpieces! Your step-by-step video gave me confidence that I could actually make beautiful cards just like these. I especially loved the second "stepper slimline" card. I've never seen anything like it! But your instructions were so precise and the fact that you showed the finished card from all angles made me know that this was going to be the next card I make! I feel so privileged to be a part of this. I've been making cards since we were several months into the pandemic, so I am a novice. I happened to see a video of your flower-making techniques the "EZ" way and felt right then and there, "I think I could do this!" Thank you and your talented team for sharing all of your beautiful ideas through your dies, stamps, papers, molds, and videos, especially the Insider videos. What a major difference that has made for me! Now I know I can go back and watch all of the videos at my own pace and discover other tips and techniques that I could use with the crafting supplies that I do have. My collection is limited, but I'm working on it. Also, I've had occasion to speak with your outstanding customer service representatives and they deserve to be commended on their helpfulness, friendliness, and professionalism. Please give them my sincere thanks. So glad I found this company! Thank you again for your dedication to something that gives me and many others so much joy and happiness!!

Your classes are always a joy to watch! This zinnia class was especially fun for me. I learned shaping techniques I hadn’t ever thought of, as well as color combinations that I never dreamed of! Thank you, Emma Lou! Hugs!

Love the class because: I can always use more coloring tips : Give options on using different media that you are comfortable with OR to try new ones: I believe I can now make shadow boxes: I like how you use pieces from previous collections: always give encouragement and last but not least you can always revisit your class for more information and go step by step instructions. ( needed this option today as there were many interruptions. My Chihuahua had surgery on her knee 1 week ago) Thank you

Great class on co-ordinating the putting together of an album and a new way to do the hinges. Also the tips on making shaker cards from card bases in the paper packs were very unexpected and useful. I too love the point when I can start decorating especially with the flowers. They add so much richness and fullness to projects and are fun to make. All in all a very enjoyable 2 hour class.

The live class flew by because it was presented so well. I appreciate that my time is valued ... the presentation was full of helpful tips, easy to follow instructions not empty fillers or prolonged explanations. It was not too long nor too short, not too slow nor too fast. Having the replay option is great for further in depth study because I don't have to remember everything since I can find it later when I need it. Thanks!

I always love Emma Lou’s classes. Even just having shoulder surgery and knowing I can’t do the project right now, it was worth taking the class because I can go back and watch it later, you can never see it too many times, it’s always more relaxing and fun to sit back and just watch it the first time anyway. Also, everyone is so nice and the class is so much fun, it’s just what I needed to get me out of a post surgery funk. There’s always lots of laughter during the online classes.

Heartfelt Creations classes are simply icing on the cake with glitter - I mean sprinkles! I learn pointers that are “in the box” that I hadn’t thought of and pointers that are “out of the box” that stretch my imagination! That’s why I’m learning to sign up for the classes even if I already have ideas - cuz I don’t know the half of it! ????. I highly recommend signing up for classes early so that you get the $15 store credit!
