We’re glad to have you here with us, and we want you to be able to take advantage of all we have to offer so that you will get the most value from your subscription! [NOTE: Everything in GREEN is a clickable link!]
If you are new to pixels2Pages, here’s a bit of information about what your subscription includes, along with strategies for how to use it. In addition to our ever-growing archive of videos, tips, challenges, and idea galleries, which are available to all active subscribers, we add something new to the website every single day! For this reason, we encourage you to make it a habit to stop by daily, even if only for a few minutes, just to see what’s new. Speaking of what’s new – if you go to the home page and scroll down a bit, you’ll see What’s New – click on any of these links to see what’s been added since you were here last.
Here’s our weekly schedule:
- Monday – Challenges – try something new, and post your pages on our Facebook page!
- Tuesday – StoryBook Tips – detailed written information, with visuals, about one specific topic
- Wednesday – Blueprints – make page completion quick and easy! Download and save these in a timely manner!
- Thursday – Pixie Dust – fun embellishments for your pages. Again, download and save these promptly.
- Friday – Videos – follow along at your own pace as we demonstrate how to effectively and creatively use SBC and MM
- Saturday – More Tips – Photography, Journaling, Memory Manager, Technical Tips, and Good2Know handouts
- Sunday – Focus on the Fans – interviews, layout ideas, All-Stars
In addition, we take turns blogging every other day – go “Behind the Globe” to get to know your pixels2Pages team and learn a few tricks along the way.
If you get a message saying you need a subscription to view Blueprints and Pixie Dust, it’s probably because those particular ones were posted before you were a subscriber OR because your subscription has expired OR because it has not been activated. You’ll get all of the Blueprints and Pixie Dust posted during your 90 day subscription period. Be sure to download and save them before your subscription expires, because they’ll be gone, even if you purchase a new subscription!
Here’s a video about how to download, save, and import Blueprints, along with a written tip of the same information.
Here’s a tip about how to use and save Challenges.
