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 class and I loved it!!! Emma Lou does an excellent job. She doesn’t go to fast that we can’t see what she is doing. It was great! I will definitely take more!

What a fantastic class!! I love the lilac collection and learned so many new tips and tricks in this class. If you are on the fence about taking a class with Emma Lou, just do it. You will learn so much, and Emma Lou is such a great teacher. I am so glad that I can re-watch this class while I am making my cards. It makes such difference to me to be able to pause and rewind as needed. I can't wait for the next class. Thank You Emma Lou and the H.C. team for another Great Class!

Hi Emma Lou! I missed the live class so I watched it 2 days later. I loved the class and I learned how to use the Zig markers. I would like to know what color markers you used to color the scroll that you had done earlier. I liked the way you made the colors pop out and gave it a little darker look. That is a beautiful scroll and would like to learn to color it that way. Thanks, Minerva

This is the first class I've had with Andrea and I was riveted to the screen. The mini album was unbelievably beautiful and charming. I just watched as Andrea went from page to page, explained each technique, and showed the dies that were used. I even enjoyed her "mistakes" because she was able to show us how to creatively correct them. Of course, we crafters never make mistakes (LOL), we meant to do it that way. I have everything I need to make this project and will spend some quality time with my supplies and my laptop, re-watching this class and pausing as often as I need to create my own little masterpiece. And thank you Andrea for taking the extra time to really show and tell us different ways to attach pockets and vellum. It was great!

This class was awesome! Emma Lou, thank you for taking the time to show us some different techniques for coloring the stamped images. I am planning making one of these home decor items to display some pictures and notes about our 40th wedding anniversary. I also think I would like to start a tradition to make something like the project from the class for each of my grandchildren where I can add a picture/journal card for each Christmas.

I greatly enjoyed the class. I hope that you keep doing online classes because in person classes are not an options for some people. I had bought some of the flip fold inserts and an album in Atlanta last month and this class helps make the process so less intimidating. It helps you get started and then you branch out from there. The technical difficulties are a part of life. I like to be able to download the class for when I am without internet connection. Please do more online classes.

I have taken all of the online classes, and each one is amazingly different and I learn so many techniques for making beautiful "heartfelt creations". This class is overflowing with techniques for shaping such pretty carnations, and they all look different. I always learn something new!

This is my fifth class, and I have loved every one of them. It is great to be able to watch them over and over and review various techniques. Emma Lou makes everything look so easy and gives you confidence to just jump in and try. I found it very helpful to see which border dies work together, taping as many as three in place. I loved the idea of making intricate borders by backing two matching dies together. The possibilities are endless. I am looking forward to the new eyelet die. Thank you

Just finished re-watching your class and am so thrilled with the online class! I can watch it as many times as I need to and truly get my money's worth! This is so great as I can pause to do work, then continue, rewind for anything I did not quite catch and really focus on competing my project! This is not a once and done class, you have made Ms. Emma my personal on-demand teacher! Thank you from those of us who may not always be able to catch a live class, and those of us who may need a bit more help! ;-)

Thank you for starting the on line classes. I would not be able to take any classes at shows. I followed along planning to go back and review as I work. I have had several of the album kits since they were first released and have pulled them out to just put them back in the closet. Emma Lou was so helpful and so clear about the steps to each insert. I have signed up for the August 1st class and cannot wait. Thank you again, Sheila

I wanted this entire collection the moment I saw it. I love Zinnias, and can't wait to play. This was my first on-line class and it was great. Emma Lou, you are a delight to listen to and watch. The details shown in how to make these, and shape and color them were also great. I will be using Buttercup and Fern a LOT in my flowers. Thank you HC. I loved this class

Hi Ema Lou, thank you very much for another excellent tutorial, I couldn't see alive I was away with family but I warch it now and is just wonderful, learn few new things, like the coloring of vellum and the way to shape vellum flowers, as always I was so happy with the class, I start the preliminars before, and now I will be able to finish the album, once more I could said we all are winners with Heartfelt Creations, with the quality of the products, and so many new ideas of how to develop our craft.

Emma is a concise, amazing, knowledgeable instructor. I absolutely love taking her classes.

— Tami Putvin
Love the camaraderie between crafters world wide and the encouragement Emma Lou gives everyone. It is also rewarding to see various things that can go wrong (or as we crafters say, the various opportunities that arise) when what we think will happen doesn't exactly happen, i.e. a flower tears, a little more rounding is needed to overcome a flat appearance. The classes make you feel as if it's ok, whatever happens is ok and can be worked with. Thank you, Heartfelt Creations and Emma Lou!

I really enjoyed learning something new. I never considered making jewelry with paper florals. The end result is so beautiful. The best thing is that since my daughter makes jewelry and I do papercrafts, we can do these projects together. It will be great to share a crafting activity!

This was my first class and I loved it. I think I will sign up for the next one in July. I also plan on watching it again because as a senior we can have brain farts and the second time around I can take notes. Thank you for the discount which really helps as a seniors on a budget. I really enjoyed all of the techniques since they went further than the quick tutorials I've watched thru the text messages. Yes I watch all of those too. I am starting with the Wild Rose collection.

Another stellar class! Easel cards I am familiar with, but learned all about cascading flowers. Always something to learn. The other two cards were new to me and fantastic. Emma Lou is such a great teacher, I feel like I can make the cards like a pro. Thanks!

What an amazing class. So many great ideas for border dies. They look simple to use but are a challenge and this class helped take away the worry of messing it up. I also learn something from your classes but this one was beyond my expectations in the content. Looking forward to more learning opportunities.

Very inspirational. Love how it very calm and collected and easy step by step. Great on able to go back after class and rewatch the class. I will be practicing and learn more on creating my own rose.

This class gives several good ideas and examples of beautiful boxes and baskets for you to share with friends. Tips and techniques provide helpful guidance as you make each item shown. The downloadable .pdf gives you the supplies and instructions for cutting and scoring, so helpful! Andrea is a wonderful communicator and does a great job sharing her knowledge of crafting. I liked her style and would take a class with her again. Thank-you Andrea!

This poppy mini album is GORGEOUS!!! Heartfelt Creations makes it so easy and fun to make beautiful things. My husband thinks my cards are absolutely amazing, and he's not one to really notice artwork that much. So when he is this impressed, it must be REALLY great, hahahaha! Heartfelt Creations is a wonderful investment both of my time and my crafting dollars. These classes are super and by the time we get the $15 coupon PLUS a bonus code, they are practically free!!!

This was my second class and I thoroughly enjoy watching. I will be making my album this weekend. The handout with all the measurements is a great addition to the class. Makes it so easy to follow along! I agree with other who said an intricate die class would be great!! Thank you for caring so much to help us make pretty stuff!!!

Hi To all from Heartfelt Creation. Sorry that my English is no so good. I want to let you know that I love all you’re classes. I saw a couple videos from you, every time I saw a new one I learned something new. I like this one because it was easy and fast. I ready pay for the Insta-album class on January 2019.

This project looked a little overwhelming, but Andrea showed us how to assemble the entire album in just over 2 hours. The class came complete with a 48 page instruction sheet, identifying each piece to cut and what paper to use. With the online class, I was able to interact and ask questions as needed, plus, I can go back and watch the video again. This album would make an awesome gift for a wedding, baby, remembrance of a loved one, etc. The possibilities are endless! An added bonus is the free product codes and $15 to spend on my next order. I highly recommend taking classes from Heartfelt Creations! Always amazing customer service!
