Rabbit, rabbit y’all!! I guess by now you have heard the news that pixels2Pages has been acquired by Forever, but in case you missed that somehow, HERE is the post about it. While this has been an exciting month for us, it’s also been a month of goodbyes and adjustments – read more about that (and loads more!) in this quarter’s Pages magazine, which is hot off the presses. Thanks to featured fan Donna Martin Ames and all who contributed to this Celebration issue, and special thanks to Tameka and Alison for creating and editing it.
Yesterday was Download Day – have you gotten your Blueprints yet? Be sure to get them downloaded, unzipped, filed, and backed up so that you’ll be ready to crop this coming weekend – that’s right, it’s our National Scrapbook Day virtual crop! The fun starts early Friday morning, May 6 and runs through Sunday night, May 8. The theme is “Life Is in the Details,” and we are excited to feature Janice’s first kits in the Forever store. As always, our crops are open to anyone (on our Facebook page) and p2P members will find their extra goodies HERE (during the crop).
This month, the Forever Print Shop special is 10% off on Gift Items, and it will be taken automatically when you order – no coupon needed. Get a head start on holiday gifts – if you need ideas, you may want to purchase the 2015 Gift Pack Blueprints – it’s full of coaster, mouse pad, and card Blueprints to get you started.
As mentioned last month, we have a good number of live events going on all over the country, and we hope you’ll be able to join us for one (or more) of them. Anne, Tameka, and I had a blast at ‘Scrap Camp’ during p2P LIVE Asheville last month, and we look forward to going back next year! Here are places and dates (some are still tentative) of upcoming events:
- Forever Retreat Weekend 13-15 May, Bloomington, MN Trainer: Jan McCallum

pixels2Pages Affiliate Program
pixels2Pages has had an Affiliate program for two years now, and with our move to Forever, it will be undergoing some changes. Starting 1 May 2016, all p2P affiliates who are Forever Ambassadors will be earning 15% on sales of new p2P memberships (it has been 12%). YAY!!
In other news, as part of our transition to the Forever family, starting 1 June 2016, you will need to be a Forever Ambassador to continue to be a p2P Affiliate. If you are a p2P Affiliate now, and you are not a Forever Ambassador, please contact me directly for more information about that and what you will need to do. If you are a Forever Ambassador but not a p2P Affiliate, you’ll want to click HERE to sign up!
Sometime later this year, the p2P Affiliate program will be integrated with the Forever Ambassador program. For now, p2P Affiliates earn commission when people who have clicked their affiliate links purchase new p2P memberships, but those sales are not reflected as part of the Forever Ambassador program.
Now let’s see what was posted on p2P last month – the headings are links to the content described, and you’ll see images (which are not links) of April posts in the galleries that follow each heading.
Videos…for those who like to learn by watching and those who like to see the designer’s creative process in action
