This was my first "live" online class, and it was worth every penny! WOW! What an amazing and fun experience! Emma Lou, your "stage presence" is so delightful! Cindy, thank you so much for working behind the scenes, to manage the chat log. I've learned so much from this class. I am thrilled to now understand how to construct the actual album. I love the PDF "homework" (as Emma Lou called it) - that is very helpful. More pictures of the the final individual pages would be great and much appreciated!

I signed up for this class to watch live, but unfortunately I had to work when I thought I would have the day off - so sad! Anyway I just finished watching the class a day late and enjoyed every moment! Thank you Andrea for a lovely class! I make many more 12x12 scrapbook pages than cards, so I was especially happy to see you working with larger papers on a 12x12 layout. The vellum Peony flowers are beyond beautiful and I really enjoyed actually watch you make each flower from beginning to completion!

Showing the different ways to use the borders was amazing! And I have them. Love your products and classes. I have grown as a "crafter" because of you and your products! Thank you, Colleen

This was such an enjoyable class. Thank you for speaking slowly and clearly and repeating yourself for those of us who get carried away and forget to look up!! I'm sure I'll make many more of this card style for quick and gorgeous cards. Thank you so much!! Heartfelt Creations has brought my card making to a whole new level!!

Loved the class. Very informative. I didn't have my carnations die & stamp yet but I used my poppy die and stamp I just received and followed Emma Lou's instructions and my flower is very pretty. I love that I was able to color the flower and it came out great. I also created a bud for the first time and it wasn't perfect but I still liked it. So thank you HC for the classes. This was my second but won't be the last. Sharon Minnis-Byrne

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!

My first online class with Emma Lou. It was so well made. Everything done in detail and shown with wonderful shots. These classes are the best way to attend when you can’t physically be there! Going through the video whenever you want to revisit details! Thank you so much Emma Lou!!

This was my first online class with Heartfelt Creations. I watched Emma Lou do her magic and am so thankful to be able to watch the class video as often as I want. The class was well worth it. I can't wait for my order to arrive so I can create along with the video. Thank you for your beautiful stamps and matching dies.

I thoroughly enjoyed this class. Even though I have taken the Classic Rose class at CKC Lancaster 2 times already, and just like I did with those classes, I learned new ways of doing things. It's very interesting to take a class with Emma Lou because she is a such an amazing instructor & is so full of tips, tricks & techniques too. I can't wait to watch this class over & over as well as take more new online and convention classes in the future too.

Its amazing what Emma Lou does with ONE stamp and die and makes it 8 other flowers besides the tulip.. SO thats 9 flowers wow what a way to make your initial purchase seen extremely a great value. Plus Emma Lou is just adorable and makes it so easy to learn. Unbelievable company with quality produces

Great project & the paper selection was awesome. I really appreciate Heartfelt Creations having these on-line classes since I am not able to attend many expos. I have taken almost all of these on-line classes & I noticed this is the first time I felt like Emma Lou seemed rushed to get finished but then finished early we all have times like that. Would it be possible to send the viewers an update to this class to cover where you use the small tags or maybe I just missed that. Thank you.

Loved this class today. I am making 4 of this size album to give to friends that are joining me on a cruise to the Panama Canal in late October this year. Unfortunately I will not be using all Heartfelt papers - but you will see some of the Under the sea collection popping up. Loved how you extended the dies and the pockets - something that I have not seen done before and that way my ah ha moment today. The dies that Heartfelt has designed are perfect for albums and can be adapted any where.

I now have a greater love for foam flowers, which translates into making more of them. The Stamens ARE easier to use after paying attention and using the "do it 10 times" advise. I get so excited before during and after these classes! Your tips, the feedback and questions from other class members is invaluable! Afterwards I am so full of ideas and excited!!! Thanks soooo. much for sharing your enthusiasm and allowing us to be a part of it too.

This was my first online class. I took a class last June at the Chantilly VA Scrapbook Expo and love the techniques I learned. This time it will be great to have the class to refer back too as I “lost” some of the techniques I learned in June. I tried to work as the class progressed but being a beginner I had to quit and just wTch, which I should have been just watching from the beginning. Actually I did color the flowers so I could play later. The flowers are so life like. Thank you for being wonderful you

Thanks so much Emma Lou! What an amazing class! Your explanations and top tips were extremely clear and precise. You are a very inspirational teacher and your enthusiasm for all you do is so infectious! This is my first online class, but I wasn’t able to see it live as I’m in Perth, Western Australia and the time was 2 am! It is wonderful that I am able to watch this class in my own time again and again to catch all your tips. Thanks again for all you do for the crafting community!

This is a great class. I am not usually a crafter so I was hesitant to take this class. I learned some techniques that I can to apply to my card making. I think I will sign up for the classes I have missed to see what else I can learn.

I love the class! Andrea did an excellent job explaining everything and showing exactly how she did it. The flowers were so pretty and the colors were awesome when she put the board all together. I am getting excited about making one myself. Everyone at Heartfelt Creations are amazing people!! You Rock!!

I just finished this album and it is beautiful. The kits came with everything pre-cut and packaged that made it a fun way to do a little bit over the week. Looked the different way of using the additional inserts. Thanking for the brining us this kit and the video directions.

Thank you Emma Lou for another great class. I enjoy these so much. Best part is being able to go back and watch over and over again. I love that you show small errors and how to fix them. Can't wait for the next class. I find the more classes I take the better notes I take as I can think ahead more to making my flowers.

A fabulous class for a huge project! I was pleased and surprised that the project was completed with no sense of being rushed. Emma Lou is a superb teacher and keeps to an easy to follow pace and like magic the project appears! I love these classes and feel such a sense of connection to HC when I am watching them. It also helps to know if I am on the right track with some of the techniques shown in the classes. I always learn something - and usually a lot of things. Thank you so much for a wonderful class

learning how to make the shaker for cards and albums was so easy and using the magnets for closers was the best way to close the albums.

This was my first online class with Emma Lou! I'm totally hooked. Your clear and easy explanation plus showing what you are doing makes the construction of these projects so much easier to make. I have been a longtime customer of Heartfelt Creations, and will continue to be for many more years! Thank you again for such a fun, inspirational class.

The presenter did an excellent job explaining the project and showing how to use vellum. I liked that she moved the class along and did not waste time. However, I feel for the money, it was lacking in ideas and creativity. This could have been shortened and added in the free class section or had another 2 projects. I regularly attend these classes and want to learn how to use your products and this class was not anything new. I love HC and want to get my money’s worth from products.

I hesitated about signing up for this class. I had already been using the lilac stamps and dies and been pleased with my results. But this class showed me so many extra tips that I never would have thought of. EmmaLou goes at such a nice pace. And she does not talk too fast for us to follow or understand. I loved learning how to make the card base as well as all the flowers. Excellent class!!!! And I love that it is now in my "library" so I can go back and rewatch it.

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.

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.

A wonderful class. I learned so much; working with vellum, stamens, hot glue and designing and shaping my flowers. I would not hesitate to recommend this class to anyone. Didn't think I could do this project, but now I think I could (of course after watching the video a couple more times). You made it look so easy, thank you!

Awesome class. I missed the first part but I can go back and watch later. I just hope I will actually put it together. This is my 3rd class I think, and I love everyone of them. Emma Lou does a fantastic job and makes it look so easy. One day I hope to take a class at a show if I can find one near me, I live in Oklahoma. Love all your products, I think I'm more of a hoarder. The papers are so pretty I hate to cute them up.

Loved this class. Andrea is an excellent instructor and patiently answered questions. Looking forward to rewatching many times so that I can craft and ‘pause’ as needed, but Andrea made creating these flowers and working with the vellum look so easy. One of the new things I learned was that when working with vellum in the flower shaping molds, DO NOT MIST THEM WITH WATER! Looking forward to the next class!

This was my first ever online class and I loved it … I'm a flower addict so learning new techniques is very exciting. Of course, I couldn't keep up but love that I can go back and play the recording as many times as I want. Your products are my very favorite. I'll be taking more classes in the future.

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.

I am so glad that I did not miss this class. I have done these cards but no matter, you ALWAYS learn something new. I happened to have all my colored pencils out the other day when I was majorly cleaning my studio and ended up putting them back because I never knew how to use them correctly. Well, today I learned a lot! So after the class, out they came and I now have new "toys"! Ha!!! I can't wait to see what I can learn next time! Thank you Emma Lou
