You could consider these. These are some of my favorites anyway. I don't know exactly if there's a specific genre within shoujo you're looking for though, so if these aren't quite it then sorry for that.

Fruits Basket ~ was a show that I found very emotional. I think about 75% of the episodes made me tear up. I also think the Sohma family is super cute in their animal forms. One of my personal favorites.

Gakuen Alice ~ A cute series, but one that can get surprisingly serious at times.

Yumeiro Patissiere ~ Maybe not *that* emotional, but it's really easy to get invested in the MC and and feel her highs and lows.

These next ones can be grouped into a "highschool romance" category

Kimi ni Todoke
My Little Monster
Peach Girl (Romance is adorably naive. Some characters will drive you nuts with rage though, but it's their job in the show)

Some magical girl shows worth considering

Shugo Chara ~ Absolutely adore this! May have been the series to get me into the magical girl genre.
HeartCatch PreCure ~ The most popular Precure iteration. Personally I think Splash Star was the most emotional, but this and Smile (aka Glitter Force) are the more universally praised iterations.

I tried to give a somewhat wide berth of options since I'm not sure what specific genres you're looking for. There are also some shows that aren't technically shoujo, but that I would still recommend as fitting your criteria like Kobato and A Little Snow Fairy Sugar.

I believe Little Witch Academia is the height of Shoujo.

My favorite Shoujo anime:

My Love Story!
Snow White with the Red Hair
Kimi ni Todoke
Say "I Love You"
Otome Youkai Zakuro
The World is Still Beautiful
Maid-Sama

Also, if you like Manga:
SA: Special A (anime just okay)
Kare Kano (I disliked the anime)
Kyou, Koi wo Hajimemasu
Taiyou no Ie
Koi Dano Ai Dano

Sailor Moon Crystal
Cardcaptor Sakura
Erin
Rolling☆Girls
Gatchaman Crowds (i think Hajime is one of the best anime heroines ever)
Kill la Kill (over-the-top, cute and funny, dramatic and violent. could qualify as shoujo... many feminist themes)

emotional and dramatic, but not cute:
Madoka Magica
Rose of Versailles
