I love how fast this project came together and you have a beautiful work of art in no time! I always learn new things with each class and I've taken every one offered online. I think the pebbles on the base of the box add a pretty finishing touch. My favorite tag was the one with the partial circle. I like the idea of leaving the adhesive cover intact on the foam to allow for the addition of photos at a later point. I so look forward to these classes each month. Thank you Emma Lou and team!

I loved learning how to do the small flowers and small centers. I have always had trouble with that part of making flowers.

Emma Lou, I so enjoyed this class very much! I tend to glue embellishments flat, now I know how to glue them for more dimension. The coloring tips were great as well. Thank you so much for standing up the project today. I have trouble with my project falling over, so I use a plastic or metal plate holder/easel. Thanks again!

I thoroughly enjoyed taking this class. There were sooo many techniques demonstrated with these dies, I will be re-watching this one over and over. I will certainly be using these techniques over and over as well. My favorite part was learning the embossing technique and the partial duplication of a die on the other side (purple and gold sample on the wall). Welcome back Emma Lou and thank you for this fun and informative class!

This was so EXCITING for me to attend my first Heartfelt Creation Class and I enjoyed interacting with all the other Heartfelt crafters. I thought I was a crafter before, but with all the techniques that you showed us today, Wow! It blew my mind into another dimension of crafting. Thank you so much Emma Lou & team. I strongly desire to be a professional designer like YOU! Irma

Thank you so much Emma Lou, this was my first live class and definitely not my last ! I loved everything you showed today but especially the coloring with the pencils, ink and dove blender. I have struggled with that but now looking forward to coloring my heart out !! Thanks again and Happy Canadian Thanksgiving !

I really enjoyed today's class. I signed up for the class to see the products in "action." I wanted to see the products used together to complete a finished mini album. I am a visual learner to watching a live class helped me vs reading an instruction list. In the class, I was able to see how easy it is to shape borders and assemble a mini album. I liked receiving the "homework" so I know what sizes to cut. I am glad you explained the difference between Memento and Stazs on ink. This helped my Confidence.

I always enjoy Heartfelt classes. Andrea is an excellent teacher. My favorite part is the interaction on the live chat. There are some amazing people out there. My other favorite part is that it can be replayed, it is nice to listen the first time and work with the video the second time. Thanks for another great class.

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 think this is the tenth on-line class I have taken. The beauty of the projects is undeniable. The usability is amazing. First, the products are well engineered and designed to create elegant and fun projects and allow the beginner or the expert crafter to feel confident in their ability and proud of their work. Second, the class as taught by Emma Lou, not only teaches you how to make the project, but also the tips and techniques to work with the products and the many different ways to use in crafting

I simply love this item and the class was so much fun! My two friends and I started a few days ahead thinking we would be really prepared to keep up with you. We soon discovered that was not going to happen. :) This class taught me so many different things such as how to mold and shape flowers,how to use daubers properly, making delicate stamens, and so much more. Thank you so much for sharing your talent and love for crafting. We enjoyed doing this class with you.

I've had a bunch of the dies and stamps for a long time, then I watched one where you did the classic rose - last weekend I made 4 roses with classic rose don't look to bad, I need to work on coloring evenly - I made scrapbook from Shelly Giegle (spelled wrong) using the Aster paper and flowers - I am not a fan the aster's I made, so I wanted an expert to show me some tips just on shaping flowers, I do have the wild rose - I tried to make a classic rose with it and it didn't work so well. so I need to practice some more! I had to work when the class was going on - so I could only watch the re-run. Thank you!

Wow this class was so informative with lots of unique tips and tricks. I felt confident, going into this class, that I knew how to create mini albums. However, Emma Lou did a wonderful job teaching me something new by combining the flip and fold albums. Very cool. This class really takes the intimidation factor out of creating vellum flowers. I totally love these online classes.

All of the online classes have been exceptional. The great thing about this class was expanding the use of my Peony Stamps and Dies to create different looks and moods. This makes the cost point even lower as you extend the versatility of the products. Emma Lou does an excellent job of teaching how to shape, mold and create with simplicity. Not being artistic/creative by nature, these classes give me the confidence to create artful (from the heart) cards and layouts. I highly recommend these classes.

The floral frames class was very informative. Not only do you learn how to make the beautiful frame but you also learn how to color and make the flowers for it. I was pleased to learn how to use my tulip set to make roses . Andrea is always a joy to watch.

Andrea I love your clear instructions and feel confident to try out the different aspects you taught us. Who'd of thought the Scor Pal and use of the Ink Pad could create an effect that would wow any project. I loved the new way to colour vellum, I had never thought of colouring on the front - such a simple tip but so effective. Thank you for answering all of our questions in the midst of your on-line live teaching class. Your calming and gentle style sends a relaxing vibe across the airwaves, you are easy to listen to and your step-by-step instructions perfect. Thank you again.

I've been out of the loop crafting lately. So inspired to get my Heartfelt Creations out and play. Love how versatile all the border dies are. My ah ha moment was how to use and cut the Happy Birthday border out. Thanks! Sandi

Awesome class and I have learnt so much. I never knew how easy a mini album was to make using the pocket inserts. It's my first time at making a mini album and using flip folds but I love interactive albums. Now the fun begins! I also loved the Beginners Workshop for Elegant Flipfold Albums. I would love to see classes on decorating the first 2 albums made in this class. Thank you for sharing. Happy days

— Barbara shaffer
The many different ways to use this stamp/die set was demonstrated in a very informative way, all were beautiful but the last 3 shown were really beautiful. The teal blue just stood out, the cactus flower color also was outstanding & so interesting, the tangelo flower would just pop out on a card. I really enjoyed this presentation & Emma Lou makes it so interesting in a down to earth way.

The vellum flowers the easy way was a wonderful class. Andrea was so much fun to listen to and her instructions were so nice and clear for beginners or experienced crafters. I previously took her flower necklace class and made a beautiful necklace that turned out as pretty as Andrea’s. As usual Heartfelt gave us a nice gift of free stamens for taking the class. I have purchased many classes and have learned and enjoyed every one of them. Thank you all at Heartfelt for being such a wonderful company for us

Emma Lou, epxlqins things so they are easy to follow. I learned some new tips on cutting paper for my pages that can be used in other albums. I followed along while she made the album and am going to make one. What the nice thing is once you paid for the class it stays forever and you can back and use it as a reference. Great job Emma Lou.

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.

The Rose Making Class was OUTSTANDING! Speaking as a handicapped person, working with one hand, I was totally surprised to be able to make roses (almost) as beautiful as Emma Lou's. I know with more practice...and patience, I'll get there. I thoroughly enjoyed myself, especially seeing all the different colors of roses that were opened up to us. The garden is our playground.....and I'm ready to play! Thanks Emma Lou and Heartfelt for another GREAT Class!

Wonderful class. It's always a treat to see new tools used. Use of the stamens and flower shaping and layering were clearly explained and easy to follow. I always love seeing the color combining. I have taken them all, always learn something and I can't wait for the next. Thank you Emma Lou and huge thank you to the entire H/F team-family.

I made the Heartfelt Creations orchids in vellum before but was never able to get some of their other flowers to work. I took this class and learned some new techniques that I will be trying not only on the peonies but on some of the other flowers that I have. I really enjoyed this class and would recommend it to anyone wanting to make vellum flowers.

This was my first class and I really enjoyed it and am looking forward to taking more. I learned so much on the shaping but most of all putting the flowers together. I also learned a great deal in shading the flower petals and using the stamens. Thanks for a great class.

What a video!! I wil have to watch it a few more times to understand all the things you explained. There was so much to take in and I just loved watching all the things I can make with my borders. I dug out all my border dies after I saw what you did with them. I also didn't know they could be connected to make longer borders. I love when I learn new things. I'm trying to make Christmas cards but it is almost 90 here in Florida. So enjoyed you calling me. Got to go make something shiny! Love the next class!

I loved all the techniques today and can't wait to try them. I do have to say I'm a tad color challenged and mostly I loved the colors. Can't wait to try what was demonstrated and then to expand and try my own color sets. The class was outstanding.

Arrived late to class but will go back and watch the first 45 minutes I missed. Boxes are beautiful and loved seeing how to decorate with flowers and candy canes and ribbon. Loved the short cut with just pieces of ribbon. Very nice. Love Andrea's classes. Looking forward to the next class!

I had NEVER seen an album made from "scratch". You made it looks so easy. I am hoping I can remember as much as possible so I can make one -- leaving town for 5 days. The class outlined each step very simply: from laying out the frame, cutting pockets and adding decorative trim. Then the fun part of adding embellishments. Needed the refresher on making poppies, and was wowed at using the mold -- added to wishlist!! Can hardly wait for Mega Meet to pick up things to make an album. Thank you so much.

Thank you for your awesome class and teaching. I took the rose class at an Expo but learned so much more from your class. I missed the point of taking rosebud petals on opoosite sides first then adding the rest. I enjoyed the demonstration of the hot glue gun. The sponge tip was awesome to help control the amount of glue used. This techniques helps to spread the glitter evenly. An elegant project becomes more manageable and can do possibility when broken down step by step. Thank you for the class

I really enjoyed myself, but more than that I enjoyed doing a Flipfold Album. You were concise, patient, and helpful. You showed your true crafting heart when an oops happened. You single handily converted me into an "I wanna make more albums" person. Unless I get sick or otherwise detained I am planning to attend more of your online classes. I have already signed up for July and am measuring away on inserts I have so I can start on finishing up on at least one album this weekend. Thanks so Much!!!!
