Teaching Big Impact at Big Picture Classes

I am so excited to announce that my class at Big Picture Classes is live. Big Picture Classes is a website that predominantly hosts scrapbooking, art and craft related classes. You can become and member for a free trial period of 15 days. After that you will pay $9.99 a month. It is a risk free subscription and you can cancel at any time.

It is so amazing that Big Picture Classes accepted my application to teach and gave me a chance to do so. I had never made videos before this and they encouraged me to do so and I pushed myself to do it. It wasn't easy. But I learnt a whole lot during this process and I am grateful for that.

I communicated with both Julie Williams - Education Assistant and Kelly Noel - Content Coordinator  at Big Picture Classes. I can tell you that both of them are amazing and amazingly nice to work with. I originally came up with the idea for the class and lessons. Kelly, gave me pointers to solidify my idea for the class and what each lesson would contain. We bounced ideas and suggestions back and forth to come up with the content for the final 6 lessons in this class. Every single suggestion from her was so on point. It was so awesome to interact with her especially because I have been such a humungous fan of her scrapbooking style and photography for so many years now.

My class is called Big Impact. In this class you will learn some basic photo editing techniques in photoshop elements to make a 4x6 photo to a larger size and how to type text on your images and print them. You will also learn different types of scrapbook layouts you can make with larger photos.  Below is a peek of all the different types of layouts I made with the large photos. I have two videos in each lesson explaining how I edit my photo and how I make the layout. I explained a little bit about all the different products that I used on my layouts and the design choices I made.


As for product choices, I mainly used Studio Calico kits, Ali Edwards Story Kits and Scrapbook Circle kits. I adore all the products that arrive at my doorstep in my kits. In each lesson, I also linked up equivalent products available at Big Picture Classes with which you can achieve similar results. 

I want to say that this is something out of the ordinary for me, from my perspective, I want to stop a little bit and pat myself and praise myself for pushing myself out of my comfort zone ( maybe for the first time in my life). It all started one night, when I sat down and applied to Big Picture Classes to teach on a pure whim thinking that it would go nowhere anyway. I am so deeply grateful that it did not end that way!!!

I hope you will check out my class. If you are not a member yet, you could start a free trial and check out my class.

Have an awesome day!
