I have just recently found Heartfelt Creations, and your online classes are full of inspiration, the dogwood flower is beautiful and I hope to do justice to today's class. Very easy to follow and the instructions are excellent and Emmalou is very easy to listen to.

I am sure the class would have been wonderful had I been able to view it. I switched days off in order to do this class and an hour in after getting Nothing, I gave up. A big part of the experience is watching it live, getting to ask questions and also seeing and hearing the questions and answers from other attendees. Because I live in Canada the cost of my class is nearly 40.00 CA and I don't get to take advantage of the discounts because the shipping w ould cost more than the product..

Hi Emma , Only managed to see the last half hour of your live class here in South Australia but loved what I saw, and cant wait to be able to see the whole class and make the project . Always a big fan Angela

Each class has inspired and helped me. This class offered so many ideas for scrap booking yet opened ideas to incorporate with my card making.. Working with beautiful paper, new and exciting ideas, can only help me to enjoy a hobby, better yet, a passion, I love . I can't be more grateful to the Heartfelt Family. Sat back, took notes, and I did my homework so this weekend I will complete my album. Then, I want to do a few more. Any suggestions for other paper collections, maybe a mix and match?

Thank you Emma Lou for another fantastic on-line class! My ninth class and enjoyed it as much as the first one! With your fun and informative teaching I continue to learn new things to apply to my own craft time. Again, thank you for the class incentives and discount. Love Heartfelt Creations and all of the products. Great company and customer service!

Amazing class using the decorative border die sets! So many tips and techniques that I did not know how versatile these die sets could be used for creating elegant cards. Can't wait to make page pockets on my scrapbook layouts. Love Heartfelt Creations products and learning new ways to create beautiful craft projects.

Wow! Emma Lou, you are my crafting guru! I had an amazing time learning to make roses! When making the rose buds, I had glue all over my fingers and loving every minute of it - when we got to the glitter, I had glitter all over my fingers and loving every minute of that too! You went at a slow enough pace on the coloring, shaping forming the first rose that I could keep up and not get discouraged. The next online class I take, I will have my pieces colored ahead of time. Thank you -keep up the good work!

Emma Lou has done it again!!! This is a wonderful class to learn about making albums (as well as pockets, creating flowers with and without the molds, etc). She always has time to answer questions and even elaborate on what she's already done. This class really pointed out the difference in glitters, backing with black card stock, coloring, adding stamens, flower forming and how to use the border dies. We even learned a little IT lesson! Love the classes, love the sharing and comments, LOVE Heartfelt!!!

As always the class was great, as always I can't watch fast enough, really glad I can watch as many times as I want, maybe make one card at a time. Thankyou time to go checkout the next class.

This class was excellent. It flowed very well from beginning to end. Everything was covered very well, and I liked that Andrea demonstrated the different techniques to get the shapes desired. I learned so much and look forward to the next one. Thanks for a great experience!

Another amazing class! Emma you are amazing in your teaching. You are so explicit in all your techniques. What I really appreciated (although you are so good at what you do), if and when you make a mistake you own up to it and laugh at yourself making us all realize that even "pros" can make a mistake. Thank you for another great class and I look forward to another one in October. p.s. I was thrilled to here you mention my name you made my day. God bless your entire team.

It is amazing how much you learn from these on line classes. This class was very special because we were shown how to use 1 stamp 8 different ways.....amazing. This really made me start thinking what can I do with some of my other Heartfelt flower stamp and die. All the classes are so easy to follow. Emma Lou does such a great job.

Loved this class ! My second one and they just keep getting better. Having a lot of your dies, its so wonderful to see how to use them . I can't believe how many different ways they can be interchanged!! This is a great way for seasoned as well as new crafters to learn new ways to use products they have or to add a new item to their stash. Love the tag book in its own little box! This class has given me a ton of ideas on how to use what I have learned to create gifts for every memory making moment!

What a lot of fun! Being a visual learner, I really appreciate being able to watch Emma Lou creating beautiful things. In this case a lovely floral umbrella. This project will be a gift for my daughter's May birthday. I know she will love it!

I learned how to put a complete album together and to create amazing vellum flowers. I got insight on the use of great techniques to help perfect my craft skills, and learned about new products to enhance my creativity. This was my first class. It will not be my last. I’m going to be a regular. The interaction with the other participants was enlightening and helpful. Thanks Emma Lou for your informative tutorial. Your are an awesome instructor.

The Elegant Paper Roses class was fantastic. Emma Lou is a natural born teacher. She is specific in describing each step in the process for creating such absolutely beautiful flowers. I like using the 3 petals for the base. It's prettier than the 2/2/2 petal style in the 2015 Vintage Floret YouTube. Glad I signed up for the class to learn how to make even better roses. Thanks so much to the HC Team for making these classes available.

Great class for a beginner to learn shaping of three different flowers using the molds. This class is also great for learning flower arranging on a project. When complete, the project can be placed on a display stand or added to a shadow box so you can easily update the photo when you want.

I absolutely LOVE your live online classes. How to Create Elegant Paper Roses was easy to follow along and I actually created two paper roses while watching. The fact that we can live chat and ask questions is amazing. I can't wait for the next class! Thank you.

A wonderful class. I love being able to use a flower set in multiple ways! The peony is a nice basic design that can be dressed up or used with minimal layers for mailing. THANKS!

Thank you for the wonderful inspiration in this peonies class. It was so helpful to see the variety of ways to color and shape. We’re never too seasoned to learn something new in every class. So often I just go back to a class for new ideas and relearn something I’ve forgotten. Thank you for your detailed demos, Emma Lou!!

Loved seeing the different techniques on the Wild Rose Collection, all were beautiful, but loved the first set colors, but then each set was just as pretty. Will be watching this class again as working on this set at the present time, & have not decided which way I will be doing the roses. Again another great class.

Sweet class!! Took it specially for using the foam. Instructions were clear and easy to follow.

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

My vision is so-so, therefore, I can only watch on the big screen (no chat bar). Even so, I really enjoy the classes I've taken to date. I can hardly wait to get the Lush Lilac paper pad to begin using all the new tips and very helpful instructions from Emma Lou. She is such a great teacher. I look forward to taking more classes with her. :-)

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!!!

This was a fun and inspiring class. It was filled with tips and ideas which I am going to implement in my future projects. Emma Lou took all of the intimidating factors of delicate vellum and through them right out the window. She taught us it is doable and proved it with gorgeous results. If you would like to go confidently into deeper crafting waters take this class. You will be so glad you did. One word would sum it all up.... amaZing! I look forward to the next online class!!

Another winning class! I have taken a few now and am never disappointed! Emma Lou explains everything and answers questions along the way. This album is beautiful. I love the zig zag folio and the shaker box using paper circles is an awesome idea - so much easier the messing with foam tape. Thank you!!!

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.

Just sat through the entire video for the flipfold inserts and it was fabulous! This is going to be such a a great help in using those flipfolds that bought but have been too intimidated to use! The video was so easy to follow so I know I won't have any problems. Thanks again, Teresa Rogers

This class provided a relaxed way to learn different flower shaping techniques with the peonies. So often in live classes, I feel pressured and rushed and I often miss some of the tips. Being able to replay this time after time is such an awesome benefit as I craft along with the video. Thanks Emma Lou for sharing your talents in this format!

I thoroughly enjoyed the class. Honestly, I've watched a number of the free videos and wasn't sure I'd learn anything new. But of course I did!!! Thank you so much for your cheerful presentation and beautiful examples. I thought the classic roses would be my go-to favorite; but I think now that the carnations might be the one. I'm so glad I bought the sets and have already given a good friend a birthday card with the carnations on it.
