Happy Talk with Jan McCallum - how digital scrapbooking works in my life at pixels2Pages.net

Re-entry (from vacation back to work and life) is always difficult, but it’s so worth it!  I came back from a fabulous cruise of the southern Mediterranean last week, a little jet-lagged, with a bit of a cold, and with a lot to do to make sure the transition from selling pixels2Pages memberships from the p2P site to the Forever store went smoothly.  So far, so good – only a couple of bumps in the road!

Before I share a bit about my vacation, I just want to make sure you know what you need to do regarding your pixels2Pages membership:

  1. Download all Blueprints available to you and back them up.
  2. WAIT until you receive an email from Forever telling you it’s time to buy a new membership before buying a new one.  Buying too soon means that you are a) wasting some money and b) risking having your new membership inadvertently cancelled when we cancel your current (PayPal) membership and c) running the risk of having a payment inadvertently processed at PayPal.
  3. Add the coupon code p2PTHANKYOU when you purchase your new membership so that you will receive an exclusive new Blueprint Book and coordinating kit as our thanks to you for your loyalty and patience.
  4. If you are a Forever Ambassador and you were a p2P Affiliate, be sure to remove your Affiliate links from your email signatures, blogs, and websites – anywhere you may have posted it.  They are no longer needed.

Now, back to vacation – thanks for humoring me about your p2P membership!

Our trip was a Viking Ocean Cruise – we had such a good time on our river cruise last year that we decided to branch out.  This trip began in Rome and ended in Barcelona, with stops in Malta, Tunisia, Sardinia, Algiers, and Valencia – exotic ports I’d only read about (except for Rome).  We traveled with one of my high school friends and her husband, and it was tons of fun!  Good food, great tours, gorgeous ship, and plenty of downtime.  We extended our stay in Barcelona, which was my favorite stop.  The pages I’ve done today were of the magnificent Sagrada Familia (Sacred Family) Basilica designed by Antoni Gaudi.  Under construction since 1882, the towers are due to be completed in nine more years, with final details completed about six years after that.  We’ll see….

Thankfully, visitors are able to go inside and revel in the glory of the church’s exquisite design.  I was enthralled by the beauty of the church and the brilliant stained glass windows.  I could have stayed there all day!  Three of the four sides of the church are decorated to depict different themes – the east side, built between 1894 and 1930, is the Nativity Facade; the west side, finished in the late 80s, is the Passion Facade, and the south side, begun in 2002, is the Glory Facade.  I hope I live long enough to go back and see the finished product!

Here are a couple of pages I did of the Passion Facade using a two page spread from the Thanks2You Blueprint book (your gift for purchasing your new membership in the Forever store).

    Jan, I also just came back from a trip jet lagged and with a cold. It’s been a tough week. I’m glad your trip was fabulous and that you’ve already made some pages. The Sagrada Familia is something. A lot has been done since I was there about 6 years ago. Like you, I’d like to see it complete. Cindy

    Is there a way to download the blueprints directly to an EHD. I have made sure I have all mine on my laptop. Have deleted the empty zip files and now I would like to download all the zip files directly to an EHD.

    • Jan says:

      You can copy the unzipped Blueprints into a folder on your EHD, or you can copy the Blueprint folder on your laptop onto your EHD. You need to have both the Blueprint folder and a backed up copy of it.

    That sounds like a divine trip! Thanks so much for the free gift when it’s our turn to renew. I totally forgot to ask if we will have to ask PayPal to discontinue our automatic recurring payment or if it will stop on its own? Thanks again, Jan!

    Well, I have to say I am envious of those that will be able to renew their membership by the end of April as they will receive a blueprint book and a new kit. I feel we are missing out simply because our membership is due at a later date. Perhaps when the rest of us renew our membership for the first time with the Forever store that the company might consider a bonus perk for us also. Something to ponder. Thanks.

      This Blueprint Book will be available until April 2018, so everyone who purchases a new membership in the Forever store between now and then and uses the p2PTHANKYOU coupon code will receive it.

        Perfect. I did not note that the offer was good until April 2018 and not 2017 until I saw the email from P2P today stating that. Now I can’t wait to renew my membership. Thanks.

    Such a fabulous trip to go on – I’m so glad you got to go! Love the page, particularly your journaling, and this is the perfect Blueprint to show off the details of this amazing building.
