I thought the class was very helpful. The flip and fold inserts can be scary when you first take them out of the package. I really helped to see which way to fold them.

Elegant & Versatile Ways to use 4 Decorative Border Dies was a great class and taught in a way that was easy to follow. I always wanted to know how to use these boarders and am so happy I know now. So many great ideas on how to get great use of our paper and make elegant cards. Thanks so much for a great class and I am looking forward to taking many more.

Excellent class. The bright color on the flowers and techniques were great. If you have ever wanted to use the flowers you make in jewelry this is the class for you. Liked her samples and the different ideals for future projects.

An absolutely wonderful project. Emma Lou did a fantastic job of teaching the steps to create this wonderful box of decorated tags for pictures or decor. I love learning all the ways the decorative dies can be used & the methods for creating the details. Adding the beautiful embellishments pulls it all together for a complete look.. Thank you for the heads up about Ultra Thick Embossing Powder. Now we don't have to wait overnight for drying!! Love creating the projects from these classes & gifting.

Emma Lou, I really enjoyed this class. I learned so much about using the coloring with the pencils, adding design and depth to the pages. I also like the use of the glitter on the pages. This class was really informative in so many ways. Thanks so much for being wonderful instructor. Having the PDF ahead of time was also an added bonus. It makes for a smoother flow of understanding during the class. Thanks so much. I'm signing up for the next class.

As like all of Emma Lou's prior videos, this class was extremely well done. Especially enjoyed her cluttered work space which looks exactly like mine. Maybe 8" of work space.

This was by far one of the best classes I have attended. I am so excited about making this project from scratch. At first I thought what I have I gotten myself into until Emma Lou begins showing you how to begin making your binder which was so easy to do. She is an excellent teacher and goes at a pace you can follow and understand. She always watches out for our questions and answers them immediately which is so helpful. I've already signed up for next months class.

The slider card was a very interesting item. I hope to use this on a card but think I'll have to do like Emma Lou suggested, make a sample before doing a card. She made it look so easy, as usual, but I think it will take a little trial & error to get it to work in the right way. Also the roses, a new technique from the ways she has shown before, which is why I like to do these classes. The roses were just beautiful. As usual I enjoyed this class.

The class was amazing!! I have taken several of your classes and your a great teacher and wonderful to watch! I love your cards and the extra tips you give while teaching the class. I would love to see a special offer on previous classes that I didn't take. I read what people post about the classes that they have taken and wish I had taken them. I'm looking forward to the butterfly collection ! Thank you so much.

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.

Loved the class. I always learn new ways to get to my finished product. I loved the way you used broken/torn petals and still created a fantastic flower. I also learn new ways to use your products in the classes. For instance, I learned how to maximixe the Delicate Border Basic dies by using two together for a completed cut in the last class. Blew my mind with new creative thoughts. There is always some gem of an idea demonstrated. Thanks for these classes. They are awe inspiring. Mary Jo Brown

I have loved every one of Emmas classes. This however, was my most favorite. I so want to be able to make flowers just like in the class.Now it is possible. Emma Lou has such a natural gift for teaching and is a joy to learn from her. Thank- you for this great opportunity to learn and expand our paper crafting. It is a nice privilege to be part of the Heartfelt Creation community. I would like to thank all the personnel for the wonderful service received from this company.... ..Best Regards .

WHAT A FABULOUS CLASS !!! I learned so much about shaping and coloring. I have never used my flower mole. it seemed so overwhelming but you made it look so easy. I have taken four of your classes and have loved every one. You really do care about your customers and helping them complete beautiful projects. Your staff is amazing and so helpful. You have made me feel so confident that I can make my cards look like yours do. You are a very gifted teacher. You should get "The Teacher of the Year Award".

On this video when you were doing the first flip fold in C- Kraft it hangs over the album but in your book it fits perfect. I went to fold mine and add it and the card stock was old and did not crease right. I'm just letting you know because I enjoy all your classes and product. Maybe some day I can meet you. Thank you, God Bless, Cynthia Hengst

The class was truly awesome--Emma Lou, you are a natural! The class was not only informative, but great fun, too - the time just flew by! I love that I can go back and watch the video again as many times as I want, but best of all, the albums and inserts no longer seem so daunting, and I'm actually excited and looking forward to completing an album of my own! I hope you'll continue to offer classes like this in the future - I've already signed up for the next one and can't wait for August!

where do I start, The class fantastic , Emma Lou explains everything so clearly, can wait to start a Wedding Album, and we have the video to refer to if needed, I am so looking forward to the next class. Your products are tip top, , very good quality. I just wish I could afford everything, but when you are on old Pension, but I save up to get stuff, my latest was the wedding collection. Keep up the good work

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.

This was the first live class I have watched. I was so amazed at the amount of the information given in the class. I just love watching Emma Lou. I just found out about Heartfelt Creations last year. This is the first company I have ever done business with that gives so much support to their customers in so many ways. Many times when I have purchased a product, I don't use it to it's fullest potential because I am not aware of all the many different ways the product can be used. I think that's where these classes and Heartfelt Creations shine. I never would have imagined all the different ways to make one poinsettia look so different. I feel like I have found my pot of gold in life by discovering Heartfelt Creations and all the on-line classes they offer. This class was truly AWESOME!! Thank you.

This was my second online class. I wasn't able to watch live but it was so easy to watch at my leisure. I just logged onto my account and clicked on online classes. I will be able to have Emma Lou by my side when I attempt my album. These online classes are full of extra tips. Thank you Heartfelt Team!! You are all awesome!!!!!

Absolutely love the wonderful projects and Emma Lou's instructions. So simple anybody can follow. Not only do we get the live video but all the written instructions. Best part is allowing us to see the mistakes and how to fix them. She makes everybody feel that it is ok to make those mistakes. Love all the tips and tricks. At the end of the day we walk away with a beautifully crafted item and empowered to do it again. You can't beat taking a class. Thanks for all your hard work. Janeese from Texas

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.

I have taken both classes on the flip fold album. The first class I have watched it over and over again while putting my first book together great reference tool. The paper class was okay many tech difficulties happen making it hard to follow lost you twice. Hope replay will be better. . but great staff help with trouble. . Also pdf file was very good would like to see ones for the other flip folds A, C, E, and F. Showing how to lay them on the paper is great! I now have a new way to do photos thanks!
