Winner Wednesday Heartfelt Creations Mini Album Flipfolds and Pockets E and F

I work with a very motivated and fun group of ladies every week making a variety of paper crafting projects. Recently some of them mentioned to me that they were not sure what to do with the albums and flipfold inserts they had purchased. I decided to review The Beginner’s Workshop for Elegant Flipfold Albums: How to Add Flipfold Inserts that Emma Lou from Heartfelt Creations presented as an online class  that is available here: https://www.heartfeltcreations.us/shop/?tracking=5add3e34e7161  The online class provides easy step by steps  through the steps of adding interactive Flipfold & Pocket Inserts A, B, C, D, E, and F to your albums, along with how to add magnet closures. The online class takes the mystery out of these inserts and how easy it is to add Flipfold inserts to your Album, which all differ in design and come pre-measured and pre-scored making assembly quick and stress free, all while allowing varying combinations and designs making your album as unique as you are.

I created three sample albums to use as teaching tools with the ladies starting this week. This album showcases Flipfold and Pocket Inserts Eand F. What do you think?
