Keep Life in Focus
Every day, we go to work hoping to do two things: share great knowledge with our friends and help people make things. This was true when Big Picture Classes opened in 2005 and it remains one of the guiding principles of BPC today.
Back then, BPC was a simple classroom website designed to give scrapbookers a place where they could learn and be inspired. From just a few employees and a simple website, BPC delivered the finest and highest quality training from the industry's foremost experts. The name, inspired by a book in process by Stacy Julian, Founder, referred to the "big picture" of scrapbooking and keeping your life in focus.
From the beginning, Big Picture Classes set out to be a different kind of training company. One that not only delivered quality content but also gave people a sense of community. You are not alone. You can do this. Those are the pillars of the community, which anchors Big Picture Classes to this day.
Our mission is to inspire and motivate makers to improve their skills through hands on education.
Whether you're recording your family's memories or making a gift for a loved one, spending time just making with your hands lets you focus on what's most important. We aim to not only inspire you with the best instruction from the best experts but also give you all the tools in one place so you're not wasting time shopping, searching for the right template or supplies. You're in your space making and creating. And when you need ideas or support, our community and customer experience team are here. At the end of the day, our philosophy on education is to keep your life in focus.
