This was my first on-line class through Heartfelt. Not only did I learn the proper way to color petunias,but now I have a video to always fall back on, to put together a bouquet and a flower pot of any of the flowers that I own... Thank you Heartfelt...

I always like the HC classes, they're by far my favourite ones, but when there are mistakes as there were in this class a couple of times I was confused because the instructor was trying to remain positive and like the mistakes were no big deal and almost glossing over them or even not mentioning them or barely mentioning them other than what she did instead..She more showed what she did to fix something that I sometimes didn't know what had gone wrong about it. What I needed to know was what was supposed to happen, what happened instead, and what correction was made because most of the time I didn't know what was supposed to happen, what the correct thing to do was. There were also some different cutting measurements given that she said differed from the printed instructions. If possible, it would have been preferable to have the pdf checked and amended before the class. Other than that, it is a beautiful album and, as usual, when broken down step by step, it looked doable..

I enjoyed learning how to make the wisteria petals. Emma Lou is a wonderful teacher. She explains and demonstrates each step.

Emma Lou, you've done it again...a class absolutely chock full of techniques, how-to's, and inspiration. How many cards did you ultimately demo? 15? 16? Then that sweet gift box and #10 sized card. I bought the Black Friday special and when I received them, I was a bit overwhelmed by all the pieces that came in each set. But watching you demo how to use them and interchange the die pieces among the sets made it look not only doable but easy. My brain is humming and I've already signed up for your next class. Thank you so very much.

Class was great....I have taken all the classes and have learned something from each one. Today I played with coloring...tried my watercolor pencils...got so engrossed that I lost track of time...my husband made his own dinner! Plan on enrolling in the next class, have been trying to figure out how to make that flower pot since I got the Petunia collection. Keep up the good work!

What can I say except, another exceptional class! I have done several classes with Heartfelt, I usually watch the whole video then I re-watch and pause as I go. They provide wonderful materials and the video is a perfect addition in finishing your project. You will get hooked!

Loved the class. Was fast paced showing how to create an intricate, detailed, beautiful album. It will make a perfect photo album for a wedding, granddaughter or even baby girl.

This was my first online class. The information sent right after registration was great to have for class prep. Had a great time trying some new products and learning other uses for them as well. The class was longer than I expected which was very nice to have a chance to absorb all the information and that the time was taken to explain everything in detail along with answering viewers' questions. A fun learning experience and hope to enjoy more classes in the future!

Only my second class but I so enjoyed this one, lots of tips and techniques, loved the glitter techniques especially, thinking outside the box! Also loved the idea of popping up the birdcage , can’t wait to pop a bird in there. Thanks again, I absolutely think the lilacs are my favorite collection so far, have certainly used it more, and the flower shaping tools are the greatest idea, what a time saver.

It always amazes me how many different flowers you can make with one stamp/die! And...the poinsettia is one of my all time favorites! Thank you, Emma Lou!

— Kelli Cox
The class was great! I really can't say what my favorite was all the techniques were somewhat new to me. I really liked adding the shimmer and the frosting to the flowers. The wire stamens appeared to be way more user friendly and I can't wait to try some of those as well. The various colors that a person would not typically think of for poinsettias was wonderful. It gives me motivation to try out other colors as well. Thanks so much for the class

If you're an old hand with flip fold albums you probably don't NEED this class. But you'll likely enjoy it nonetheless. The insta album is a great product and I'm off to order more because it's super fun. If you're not an old pro with the flip n folds then hold on tight. The insta album offers all the fun and less than half the hassle. Grab a couple paper pads, cut some paper and prepare to put together a stunning album.

Another great class experience. Love the idea of using a sponge to add glue when glittering/embossing intricate pieces. I can see a camp themed book using the bear collection, bees and smores in the shaker. Also using frolicking frosty and snow flakes. Gonna need a LOT of shadow boxes.

wow- time just flew today. popped in a few minutes late but will catch up when I re-watch. I love that you are not rushed and take time to go over things for us and answer so many questions. The camera view allows us to view what you are doing so well. Amazing how many flowers you can create with this flower and love the molds - they have made such a difference in my roses. Thanks so much Emma Lou.

I am brand new to this type of paper-crafting. I just bought my first die cutter, but was only using it for felt crafts. Then, I stumbled onto Heartfelt Creations and my whole world has opened up! The online classes are a great value for me since I know NOTHING!! ;) Emma Lou is a fabulous teacher and the projects have taught me so much and given me a great jumping off point for future crafting. Much love and many blessings- Mendy

I really enjoy the classes on flower making techniques. It is fun to learn how to make many different types of flowers from the same die just by changing how they are shaped. Emma Lou always has great tips and gives you the confidence to try new things. Thank You Emma Lou.

Loved the class. Would have hesitated to do the album on my own but now after the class I am looking forward to doing several albums in the near future. This project is perfect for all levels of crafter. Really enjoyed adding all the little touches. Thank you Emma Lou for another great class. Can't wait for the next one,

Totally enjoyed my first class! Learned so many new techniques and tips. I appreciate the interactive process. It allowed questions to be asked and answered during the class. Also showing which supplies are used and where to get them is a plus. All I can say is Emma Lou is a great teacher and can’t wait for my next class!

Thanks for the Insta-Album class. I really appreciate the step-by-step help with cutting all of the pieces in the PDF document, and the steps for embellishing each of the pages. I also appreciate the option to review the video as many times as needed to complete not only this album, but also for making many more.

This was a first class for me. I truly enjoyed following along as much as I could. I would give a 5 star but I never did have a question answered. I’m still left wanting to know what colors were used in the set necklace that you showed at the end. I will be taking another class. I enjoyed the more in depth explanation on how to.

This was my second live video class, very inspiring! The different coloring methods add so much dimension and beauty to the item, and the overall finished product. The Heartfelt team is wonderful and are to be congratulated for sharing such talent and inspiration with us in making cards I love your products and instructions---easy to follow and also giving the details that are so vital in cardmaking. Thank You, Glenna Abney (Warner Robins, GA)

I loved the shaping techniques shown on the large purple flowers. I haven't tried the scrunching technique yet but am now encouraged to do so. I am hoping that I will be able to take the next class but I am not sure as I am going in for open heart surgery on Feb 21st. I am not sure when I will get out of hospital or whether I will be up to taking the class but I will register for it so I can watch it when I am feeling okay again. I love your company for its creativity, innovation and helpfulness. Take care

Another great class. Loved the different color combinations that was used on the flowers. It is nice that you show that problems happen in crafting and some solutions to those problems. My favorite was the curling iron flowers, I love wild roses and they remind me of them.

I absolutely loved this class. Definitely worth the time and money and I love the feature of being able to go back and watch at my leisure. Believe me I have done that so many times since the class. I have learned so much in just 2 hours spent with Emma Lou and all the amazing Heartfelt Creations crafters from around the world who were also taking the class.

These Tag Albums will make such nice gifts. I love that by using the tags the pictures can come out and be passed around if in a group. The tutorial explains each move to make and Emma Lou makes it easy to follow. The Heartfelt Creations Products are high quality and always make superb and beautiful creations. I recommend taking these classes to help get the most use out of your dies and stamps.

— Mary Lee Makinen
When you first came out with flip fold albums, I bought supplies in order to make the albums and also took the online classes. Most of the supplies are still sitting in a box. Too intimidating. I think the Insta-Albums are the answer for me. Much easier and faster to do. More time creating then trying to figure out how to put things together before the decorating process begins. As always Emma Lou was a great instructor and being able to watch the class again and again will be a great help.

What a bright spot in my day! Thank you so much Emma Lou for taking me to a new level in my crafting. I have always wanted to make the roses but my attempts were not pretty and I lacked the confidence and inspiration to try again. You provided me with the courage to try, the encouragement to grow and the knowledge to produce beautiful roses. I completed two glorious roses, two sweet buds, and the most inspiring leaves I could have imagined. Bless you and everyone at Heartfelt Creations!

Many beautiful flower techniques! I especially enjoyed all the shaping ideas. I would love for Heart Felt to come out with some "elegant" angels or old world castles. But, they always do a fantastic job. Many thanks!!!

Andrea did a WONDERFUL job, I thought her pace was just right--easy for us to follow plus she answered our questions as we went along. To me, this is one of the best reasons to take these online courses is to be able to ask MY questions and to have the instructor answer them, plus I learn a lot from the questions of others. I loved all of her attention to details and she explained WHY too. My hope is that Andrea will be teaching more floral jewelry online classes, please?! I'd give her an A+++++!

What a nice class - I didn't realize it was going to be a finished project class and was happily surprised. I had answers to questions I had regarding how to use paper backings and learned a lot about organization of the bouquet. Emma Lou is such fun to watch. She has such a sweet uplifting spirit that you can't help but smile while she is teaching. I also like the format where you can learn from experiences of other crafters. I can't wait to get out my supplies and use what Emma taught to have fun and make exciting gift items. Thanks for these classes.
