In less than a week, pixels2Pages will be celebrating its fifth anniversary, and that’s no April Fool’s! That’s right, it was on 7 April 2010 that we launched the website that we’d been planning for months. It’s hard to believe that it’s been five years – we’ve seen lots of changes and we are so grateful to you for sticking with us through them all. If you are new to p2P, we hope you’ll be with us for another five years!
Speaking of changes, we’re making a change in our policy regarding posts to our Facebook page. Starting today, here are the new guidelines for posting pages on the pixels2Pages Facebook page:
- Pages must be created using only art kits available in the Panstoria store
- Pages must include a credited p2P offering (like a Blueprint, Pixie Dust, video, challenge, or tip)
As always, we ask that you list all art kits used, both by name and by designer, as well as listing fonts used. When relevant, please use the p2P hashtag or name the p2P offering that you used or that inspired your page.
We hope that this change will make it easier for you to share your beautiful pages on our Facebook page. Just a reminder that you should always credit the content and Blueprints used in pages that you share online, regardless of where you share them. This includes any other Facebook pages, Facebook timelines, Pinterest boards, other scrapbooking sites and other social media sites. Thanks for sharing the digi love!
p2P Virtual Crop:
Since we’re in a celebratory mood, we thought we would have a Celebration Crop, and since National Scrapbook Day is the first Saturday in May (also known as Derby Day if you’re a Kentucky girl!), it seemed like the perfect time for our next virtual crop. You will want to be a p2P member in time for this crop, which will start on May 1 and will end on May 3. While anyone, member or not, can participate, the members-only goodies will knock your socks off!
To be clear: Free trial members and Back2Basics members are not eligible for crop goodies. They will be available only to pixels2Pages members, so click HERE if you’d like to join.
