Rabbit, rabbit y’all!!
Where I am, I’m looking at sunny blue skies and warm (if not hot) temperatures, but the guy on the news is talking about a snowstorm due to hit the northeast on April Fool’s Day. Not my idea of a good joke! At any rate, I sure hope this month is a good one for you!
April is a month of celebration at pixels2Pages, because the website was first launched on 7 April 2010. Our very first video posted was our signature, Going Global by Shelley Alexander. It’s still a classic – if you want to celebrate with us, just post a globe page on our Facebook page on Friday, 7 April. We can’t wait to see your gorgeous globe pages! In addition, it was one short year ago today that we joined the Forever family – I can tell you that none of use would have predicted any of this back in late 2009 when p2P was just a gleam in our eyes. We are so grateful for you – we couldn’t have done it without you!
If all ‘moves’ could be as seamless as our recent move to the Forever store, I might be a nomad! With very few small hiccups, we are there! Over half of our monthly members have had their recurring payments stopped at PayPal, and a good number of them have purchased new memberships from the Forever store. If you no longer have access to the pixels2Pages.net website, we encourage you to click HERE to join us again. Remember to use the coupon code P2PTHANKYOU when you check out so that you receive your thank you gift (an exclusive Blueprint book and kit) from us.
If you are an annual member, please make sure you stay on top of your p2P Blueprint downloads so that you’ll be ready when it’s time to get a new membership. If you’re a monthly member and your renewal date is early in the month, please please please take time to download, save, and back up all Blueprints currently available to you! Previously posted Blueprints will NOT be available after the purchase of a new membership. All other posts on the website (Bright Ideas, Tips, Videos, Blogs, Workshops, Handouts, Checklists, etc.) will be available as usual. And, of course, you will still receive 18 new Blueprints every month of your new membership!
If you forget to use the P2PTHANKYOU coupon code, don’t despair – I am sending out replacement codes every Monday to anyone who forgot or didn’t know to use it. No need to contact us or support – we know who you are!
If you still have questions about the move, click HERE to see answers to the most frequently asked questions.
Last month, we added about 20 new videos to our Getting Started with Artisan 5 series, which is still a work in progress. We would love your feedback, especially if you are a new Artisan 5 user or someone working with new users. Please email us at forever@pixels2Pages.net with your comments, questions, and suggestions.
In our continuing efforts to increase the value of your pixels2Pages membership, we have heard your feedback regarding written instructions with videos, and we’re adding a bullet point outline to most of our upcoming Artisan videos, excluding Start2Finish videos. This outline is not meant to be a step-by-step guide that could be followed without watching the video; rather, it is meant to be a companion piece to the video. You may copy and paste the outline and use it however you please as long as it is for your personal use only. We welcome your feedback.
**NOTE** We had a few little blips on the website on this past week that resulted in members being able to log in but not access member-only content. This was unrelated to the move to the Forever store and was short-lived. You will be notified when the recurring payments for your membership have been cancelled, at which time you may purchase a new one. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Something else to celebrate – it’s time for a Virtual Crop!
We hope you’ll join us to celebrate on April 21-23 when we hold our next virtual crop, Celebrate Every Day. We have an awesome party planned – with lots of gifts, decorations, party games and ideas to feed your creativity. Join in the fun as we celebrate every day, and get lots of pages done and projects completed together! If you have questions about our virtual crops, you’ll find answers here.

The p2P team offers two monthly webinars – one for Forever™ Ambassadors only and one for p2P members and potential p2P members. The focus of these webinars is pixels2Pages, so don’t hop on expecting Forever Artisan® or Forever Historian™ training.
This month, we will air “Build Your Business with pixels2Pages™” (for Forever Ambassadors only) at 9 PM EDT on the first Monday of the month, 3 April 2017. The main topics we’ll cover are how and when to purchase pixels2Pages memberships in the Forever store and how to use pixels2Pages to grow your Forever business. To register for this webinar, click HERE.
On the third Monday of the month, at 9 PM EDT, we will present “Maximize Your Membership with pixels2Pages” for anyone – current, former, or potential pixels2Pages members. You do not have to be an Ambassador to attend this one. We will offer you tips for navigating the p2P website, specific tips about our different membership offerings, and strategies to help you make the most of your membership investment. This month, the focus of this webinar will be on p2P Bright Ideas. We will also answer questions about the new process for purchasing memberships in the Forever store. To register for this webinar, click HERE.
We make every attempt to record these webinars so that you can see them if you missed them or refer back to them later.
Are you on our e-news mailing list? We send updates when we have them – click HERE to subscribe to that list – and we have a series of emails that we send to new pixels2Pages members. If you have trouble finding your way around the p2P website, I encourage you to consider asking to be added to this email series. Click HERE to subscribe to the new member email series.

Forever Ambassador Program
Forever is always looking for Ambassadors to help spread the word about Forever Artisan®, Forever Historian™, pixels2Pages™, Forever Storage™, and Forever™ Digitization Services. We hope you’ll consider joining that effort. For information about how to sign up to be a Forever Ambassador, please click HERE.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Since the p2P team is part of 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 pixels2Pages 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!
Pages Magazine and other pixels2Pages Issuu publications
We have released the latest issue of Pages magazine. It is sure to inspire. Check it out!
Did you know that we have lots of completed albums created by the pixels2Pages team on our Issuu site? They are there to inspire you! Here are the most recent additions:
Disney – a 12 x 12″ softcover album created by Kim featuring pixels2Pages Blueprints, techniques from offerings on pixels2Pages, and content available in the Forever Store. Note: Disney-themed content used in the book has been retired and is no longer available.
April 2017 Calendar
Finally, here’s what you can expect this month, thanks to Tameka’s fantastic calendar. We encourage you to download and print out the calendar each month to help you keep track of all that’s available to you.
