See what you missed last month at pixels2Pages.net, your digital scrapbooking resource.

Rabbit, rabbit y’all!!  It’s a big day at Forever as the much-awaited new store opens today!  Hopefully, we won’t need it, but we ask for your patience just in case there are any opening day issues.

Your pixels2Pages team is still recovering from our trip to Forever LIVE.  We had such fun being together, interacting with the Home Office staff, and making and renewing friendships with our p2P friends – it was sad to see it come to an end on Sunday. If you attended Forever LIVE, thanks for coming and hopefully you stopped by to say hello to at least one of us!

If you couldn’t make it this year, we sure hope to see you in Phoenix, Arizona, next August 3-6.  Mark your calendars and start saving now – it’s so much fun!

Save 10% on p2P Annual Memberships this month!

10 percent off p2P annual

Just in time to reward our longest-term members, it’s a fall sale on p2P Annual memberships!  If you already have an annual membership that renews in October, just sit back and relax!  Your renewal will go through at the sale price of $144 ($156.24 for Texas residents) automatically.  If you have a monthly membership, this would be a great time to switch to a yearly one and save even more!  If you are in the middle of a free trial and want to continue your membership as an annual one (instead of monthly), be sure to cancel your free trial before it ends and purchase an annual membership in October.

If you are a pixels2Pages Affiliate and your current membership is NOT linked to your affiliate account, you will want to 1) download all of your Blueprints 2) cancel your current membership before it renews and 3) purchase your new annual membership after clicking through your own affiliate link.  Ditto for any of your customers who are not linked to you yet!

If you have specific questions, just email us at info@pixels2Pages.net and we will be happy to help.

New Look for pixels2Pages.net!

Since the Forever store is getting a facelift and some new capabilities, we thought we might do a little renovating over at the p2P site, too.  Over the next few weeks, you’ll notice some changes that we hope will make it easier for you to find things on the website.  You may notice some changes today, and we’ll be gradually rolling out a few more.  The first changes will be to the menus, as we are consolidating the blue and the mango menu bars. Other coming changes – we’re changing the name of “Challenges” to “Bright Ideas”.  This change is based on feedback that the word ‘challenge’ sounds like something hard and that it means something different in other areas of the scrapbooking world.  You’ll still enjoy getting to try something new each week!  We’ll also be adding some icons to the home page that we think will help you navigate the site much easier.  We’d love to hear your feedback next month, after you’ve had some time to get used to the changes.

Big News regarding Back2Basics and Artisan 5 webinars

After many requests and much discussion, we have decided to make both of our Back2Basics courses (Artisan 4 and Artisan 5) available to everyone at no charge.  If you already have a p2P membership, you’ll have access to Back2Basics as well. We are also adding a number of short videos (Pixie Power Minutes) to the Artisan 5 Back2Basics course, to increase the amount of free training available.

Since Back2Basics lessons will be available to everyone, and since the Jumpstart Artisan and Artisan Deeper Dive webinars have been recorded, we will no longer be offering these live monthly webinars, but the recordings will remain available to everyone.  These two webinars were intended for people who are brand new to Artisan 5.  They are broad overviews that offer just enough information to inspire a brand new Artisan user to jump in and start using her new Forever Artisan software.  Jumpstart Artisan covers how to get started using Artisan 5, and Artisan 5 Deeper Dive demonstrates three ways to create three pages, from very simple to enhanced to decorative looks.

If you’ve watched those webinars and completed the Back2Basics courses, and you want more information about specific subjects, you almost certainly can find it on the pixels2Pages website!  Try searching by key word (top right corner of the website) or by using the tag cloud (right side of each page of the website), or by choosing a category from the mango menu bar across the top of most pages of the website.  If you still can’t find what you need, just email us at info@pixels2Pages.net and we will point you in the right direction!  If you’re not a pixels2Pages member, we invite you to join – click HERE to do that, or ask your Forever Ambassador to send you her p2P Affiliate link.

p2P LIVE Events and Forever Retreat Weekends

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.  Here are places and dates of upcoming events:

  • Forever Retreat Weekend 14-16 October 2016, Boca Raton, FL  Trainer: Tameka Bond; Co-host Ambassadors: Adriana Mederos and Cindy Swilley
  • Forever Retreat Weekend 4-6 November 2016, Pittsburgh PA – Hosted by the Home Office; Trainer: Tameka Bond

Forever Ambassador Program

Forever is always looking for Ambassadors who will help spread the word about Artisan, Historian, pixels2Pages, Forever Guaranteed Accounts, and Forever Digitization Services.  We hope you’ll consider joining that effort – for information about how to sign up to be a Forever Ambassador (and a p2P Affiliate), please click HERE.  Did I mention that Ambassador kits are on sale this month?  You can become an Ambassador for only $39!  And Forever Storage accounts have been streamlined – it’s even easier to understand and sell them now!

Now that the p2P team has officially joined the Forever family, we are no longer serving as Forever Ambassadors (at least, not in the same sense as before!).  If you have been choosing the p2P team (pixAbilities) as your Ambassador, we want you to be able to select a Forever Ambassador as your new ‘person’ instead of continuing to choose p2P when you check out from the Forever store.  If you need or want suggestions, just email info@pixels2Pages.net and we can help you find someone that will meet your needs.  Again, thanks for your prior support!

    I do not see the event at Southpaw Retreat in Bailey, CO on Jan. 19-22 , 2017 listed. Is this still happening or has it been cancelled?

  2. Denise Houser says:

    Is Forever Live Phoenix 2017 only for digital scrappers or can I bring my sister who is still traditional?

  3. Andrea Gearing says:

    I live in Phoenix and am so excited to see that Forever Live will be here next August! It will be a little warm in August, some might call it hot :), but our downtown has undergone some beautiful changes in the last few years. I retire at the end of May and will actually be able to attend!! Life has presented some unique challenges in the last 6 months and I’m trying to get back to what I love…digital scrapping! I think my membership renews in November. I am going to take advantage of the $39 Ambassador offer. Do become an ambassador, cancel my current membership, and then renew at the discounted annual renewal fee? Will the my renewal still be in November?

    • Jan says:

      Glad you’re getting back to digital scrapping and that you can attend LIVE next year! You have a good memory – your membership renews on 30 November 2016. Awesome that you are going to be an Ambassador, too! You will not save any money by purchasing a new membership this month (well, you’d save $1) so I would not advise that. I would advise cancelling your current membership close to the time it is due to renew, so that you can become a p2P Affiliate and earn commission on your own (new) membership. You’ll get info about that with your starter kit.

    I just took advantage of the 10% off on an annual membership. Now I can’t load the October 2016 blueprints. They were there in the recent posts before I paid for the membership and now I can’t find them anywhere. I’m able to print the checklist for October but when I go to the member downloads and click on blueprints I don’t get any blueprint download options. Help!

    • Robin Parsons says:

      I have rebooted and done everything I know to do, but all blueprints have disappeared. I can’t find them anywhere. All this happened when I changed my membership from monthly to yearly to take advantage of the 10%. They don’t show up in recent posts or when I go to blueprints. I’ve tried to access them every way I know how and they have simply disappeared.

  5. Ruth Bell says:

    I was happy to hear about the 10% off, but what was the most pleasant news was that Back2Basics is again included in the membership. The last time I tried to mentor a potential scrapbooker years ago, I recommended that she buy Back2Basics and I was able to help her because I could see it and work along with her. Now my friend who joined during the last crop is learning very fast. She is buying a new laptop and I am going to suggest that she go through the Back2Basics before she loads any content that she had bought.

  6. Deanna says:

    Thank you for the 10% off p2P annual memberships! That is so awesome. Starting my 5th year now with p2P. Been worth every penny!

  7. fbailey says:

    Hi-It mentions on the above calendar that you would be celebrating International Scrapbooking Day. Did you post material and info today to celebrate this day and if so where was it posted? I cannot find anything re National Scrapbooking Day on the website here. I was wondering if you celebrated on Facebook which I do not have an account for. Thanks

    • Tameka says:

      The calendar just points out that it is iNSD. There is nothing specifically planned, other that sales and promotions by Forever. Our crop will be held the 14-16, 2016. There will be specific offerings for the crop.

    Blueprint checklist not loading correctly. Possibly linked to Forever store update?
