I enjoyed the class. I was working during the live airing so I only got to watch the recording. I would have liked to see more samples shown at the end.

I loved taking the class. Emma Lou was so friendly and helpful in explaining everything. I liked how she showed all the steps and demonstrated all of them. Itwas nice to see her make a mistake and then what she did to fix it. This was very helpful. The one thing that might be a little bit easier to see the demonstrations, is if the camera was maybe from above, looking down over the project. Sometimes it was alittle hard to see when the camera was from the side. I wanted to learn how to use the foam sheet.

The class was wonderful. So many technique tips. And the encouragement on how it can take several times until getting something right where you want it. I did a lot of prep work, so actually completed the project that day. I love it so much I don't know if I'll give it away or keep this one and try to make more for others on my list. And the ability to go over the class as many times as we want is an added bonus. Of which I have already done for a couple spots to get a certain idea just right.

Thank you so much! This class was amazing! I can't wait to make my foam flowers! I also am going to make the mini album and the card holder! Thanks again Emma Lou and Tracy! Can't wait until the next class! Merry Christmas to all of you! <3

This was a wonderful class. The album is a complex album with a lot of flips and folds that Emma Lou made making it very easy. You can watch the class video again and again and pause it where you need to take more time. Everything is explained at a reasonable pace to keep up with, including tips and ideas to make it your own. They offer additional coupons to save extra money on supplies. They provide a pdf to save and or print as a reference showing you how to cut the cardstock to fit the pages.

Thank you so much for another inspiring class! Andrea did an amazing job! I needed some new ideas and this has motivated me to get into my craft room and create beautiful vellum flowers. I am already thinking of new ways to use some of my stamps and dies that I have neglected for a while. I recommend the classes to anyone who would like to learn something new or just jump start their creativity!

The two hours went very quickly. There were so many great tips and ideas. I sound and camera angles made it very easy to see up close what you were doing. I have taken so in class HC classes but their pace is faster and you can't see as well A friend from and another state and I were instant message through the entire class it was great thank you Emma Lou.

Emma Lou, These on line classes do of course teach the skills, and they also build a confidence that allows us to dig deeper in to our craft world and use our supplies. I love the glamour and dimension that using HFC dies, stamps and the flower shaping tool adds to my projects. I was able to create four roses during the class. The great thing is that I can re-watch this video to complete the class. I have become an HFC addict. Congratulations on creating an excellent line of products. ML Makine

Andrea did a wonderful job presenting the boxes and baskets class. There are so many ideas that she shares to make the projects beautiful! Today, It was a wonderful reminder of how to do flower shaping poinsettia's without the mold and add accent pieces! Thanks HF for always inspiring your crafting family and surprising us. These classes are enjoyable to watch and to learn different techniques. The projects are beautiful and easy to follow! Thanks again!

Andrea, Loved your class. You are a natural at not only instructing others but also keeping up with all the questions. Hope to make some jewelry soon. I can't wait for Scrapbook Expo in Duluth, GA and the classes there. I am taking 3 of them. Will definitely come by and see you at the booth. Happy 4th of July to you and all the Heartfelt family. Thanks again for a great class. Stephanie

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!

Emma Lou does an excellent job explaining what she is doing. The list that you send before the classes that gives the pages in the paper and sizes to cut the paper is great. One thing I would like to see you do is add the pages and location these pieces go in the album that we are working on. I like to follow along with you as you do the album but not sure where the pieces go. I think it would make it so much easier when you go back to watch the video. I enjoy the classes and always learn something new

I really loved the class. This was my second one class so far. I will definitely be doing more classes. Emma Lou was really clear and was a joy to watch. I took the day off and have spent the whole day making flowers! I bought the peony stamp and die a while ago and was not happy with what I was doing with it. After the class I absolutely love the different types of flowers that I can make. Thank you Emma Lou.

This class was great. It is apparent that HC has been listening to our comments because Emma Lou took extra time to show the flower "building" process this time. Thank you for that. The finished project is stunning.

Emma Lou enjoyed this mini tag album class so much. Learned so many things about making an album and look forward to reviewing it many time over as I attempt to make albums for my family and friends in the future. Looking forward to taking the Insta - Album next month as I ordered 2 on Black Friday. Thank you and family for keeping us inspired each month. Being a Platinum member makes my life so much easier. Love your classes!

I thought this was excellent. you showed me how to shape my roses in ways I haven't used. You went slow enough to really see what you were doing... the camera angles were great also. so many beautiful techniques.

Another fabulous class and I particularly enjoyed Emma Lou demonstrating the colouring techniques they were so very helpful. Those markers are awesome!

Emma Lou has topped herself, yet again! Another great class filled with many special tips for additional ways to create with the Heartfelt Creations products we own! She also gave great reminders on how to use some of the little "extras" that we've already got! Loved it! Excited to sign up for the next class! Don't want to miss out! ! !

Loved this class and learned more techniques than I even knew I needed. The finished project is so beautiful I can't wait to try it. I am combining the techniques for flower shaping I learned with the ruffled carnations class and combining those with the techniques I learned with this class to make a hanging basket for a baby shower. Since it is for a baby girl, I am using baby pink papers for the vase and various shades of red and pink in the floral arrangement. So much fun. Thanks again Emma Lou .

This was my first online class and well worth it. I had everything prepared in advance and hoped to work along with the instructor. I soon realized that wasn't going to happen, so I just relaxed and watched. It was a great experience. Knowing I can view the class at any time is a definite benefit. I loved Andrea's teaching style and will definitely be signing up for more of her classes regardless of the content.

I loved this class. Hydrangea is one of my favorite flowers so the technique to make them was my favorite. I also enjoyed the coloring and assembly tips. It is so much better to take an online class than to just read the instructions. I got so much more out of it. Things I would have not thought of. The comments from others in class was rewarding too. This was my first on line class, I've taken many at shows and am looking forward to taking more in both settings.

The class was a great help to me. I love the album, but felt overwhelmed as to how to begin. As you said, take it a little bit at a time. I loved all the embellishments you used. I purchased most of them when I first saw the album, but I see there are a few more I need to get. Thank you, thank you!

I never would have thought to use the tulip stamps and dies to make these types of flowers. It is a much more versatile set than I ever thought. Great class.

Even though I had connectivity issues I saw enough to be so excited to learn a new way to use some the insert folders. These folders offer some of the best ways to add depth to my projects. I can add lots of photos along with inspirational clips. Emma Lou makes things look so easy and gives reassurance that we all can do these projects. Having these classes available for repeat viewing is exceptional. Thank you.

This was an amazing class, I learned so much. I always question what colours I should put on the flowers, so this gave me some combinations to try. This was the third class I have taken and enjoyed it very much. I will definitely sign up for another class in the future.

This class was amazing. I have done paper crafting for awhile now, but this takes it to a completely new level. Thanks for sharing your techniques, it gives me hope. I certainly will spread the word to my paper crafting friends. Maybe I can get them to take your next class in September. I am looking forward to it. Thanks again, B. Lines

Hi Emma Lou! I totally loved your class. I was so intimidated and did not dare to try making an album on my own. So the layered and shadow box cards were left untouched in my craft room . After watching your class I became more comfortable with myself and I believe I can make my album now. Thank you so much Emma Lou for the wonderful step by step easy instructions that you taught. Keep the classes coming. God bless you my friend.
