Rabbit, rabbit y’all, LIVE from Phoenix!!
That’s right, part of your pixels2Pages team is sweltering in the desert heat, just waiting for Forever LIVE attendees to arrive so that we can kick this conference off with a bang! Kim, Mary, Anne, Tameka, and I have enjoyed a day or two of sightseeing and we’ve even done a good bit of work and last minute preparation of our breakouts, and Shelley and Alison are busily holding down the fort here and doing their best to stay on top of questions. If you find our response time a little slower than usual over the next few days, we hope you’ll understand why! We really miss not having our whole team together but are grateful to Shelley and Alison for covering for the rest of us.
If you are attending Forever LIVE, be sure to stop by Inspiration Station (sponsored by pixels2Pages) on Friday afternoon from 1:15 to 4:00 PM. You can meet other p2P peeps, hang with the team, chat with some Home Office staff, share your printed projects, and even do some cropping. And of course, you’ll want to be at the Crop Exchange on Saturday – ALL DAY!! There will be almost non-stop breakouts, but plenty of opportunity to crop away or visit different Home Office tables in the room. We can’t wait to see you!
If you’re not at Forever LIVE this year, start planning now to attend next year’s event – it is so much fun!!
Scrappin’ Safari Virtual Crop
You knocked our socks off during last month’s Scrappin’ Safari crop! We had so many participants – including LOADS of new names and faces – and hundreds of pages were posted during the weekend. It was all we could do to keep up with the comments on your beautiful pages. We had a few games going on and would like to recognize some big winners. First, we had three Safari-goers who captured the Big Five by filling in their Big Five Game Hunt cards correctly and completely. Congratulations to Cheryl Millar, Cindy Berger, and Rosena Becker-Ross!! Claudia Houston won a prize for earning the badge for using ALL of the featured designer kits on pages made during the crop, and (drum roll, please….) Barbara Startz completed 129 pages (maybe more!!) before the deadline! We had so many badge pages posted of croppers who earned the 15 badges needed to use the crop coupon for printing – way to go, everyone! Now be sure to look for some of your pages in the next Pages magazine, which will be available later this month.
Mark your calendars now for the weekend of September 29 – October 1 as we kick off a big Croptoberfest month with our final virtual crop of the year. If you have questions about p2P virtual crops, click HERE.

Now let’s see what was posted on p2P last month – click HERE to see everything posted on pixels2Pages™ in July.
The p2P team offers an on-going webinar series for p2P members and potential p2P members designed to help you get the most out of your pixels2Pages membership.
Our first ever “Ask a Pixie” webinar debuted on the first Monday in June and was tons of fun. Check out all of the topics we covered HERE. The next webinar in this series will be on 7 August 2017 (the first Monday) at 9 PM EDT. This is a very informal question and answer session about Artisan and/or pixels2Pages. Click HERE to register for this webinar. You do not have to be a p2P member to attend, but you will need to ask a question when you register. We will address as many of the questions asked in advance as we can in one hour. Note: This webinar will not be held in September due to the Labor Day holiday.
On the third Monday of each month, also at 9 PM EDT, we will present “Maximize Your Membership with pixels2Pages” for anyone – current, former, or potential pixels2Pages members. 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 using Videos to help you get the most out of your p2P membership. To register for this webinar, click HERE (even if you had registered previously).
Since the focus of this webinar is pixels2Pages, don’t hop on expecting Forever Artisan® or Forever Historian™ training, but know that after the webinar, you’ll have a better idea where to find what you’re looking for and how to get around the p2P website!
We make every attempt to record these webinars so that you can see them if you missed them or refer back to them later. HERE is a link to previously recorded webinars.
Pages Magazine and other pixels2Pages publications
Here is the most recent issue of Pages magazine – it is sure to inspire! Check it out – you may find one of your pages in it! And please – share with your friends. A new issue will be released later this month!
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 – be sure to check them out while you’re looking at Pages magazine.
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.
We had a busy, busy spring and now we are gearing up for Forever LIVE! We’ll get back on a roll with one more Forever Retreat this calendar year and a few more p2P LIVE events. Getting out to teach live events is one of our favorite things!
- Forever LIVE!™ 2017 3-6 August, 2017, Phoenix, AZ at the Hyatt Regency Phoenix – tickets on sale now – don’t wait – you will want to be there!
- Forever Retreat Weekend 27-29 October, Louisville KY. Trainer: Jan McCallum; Ambassadors: Val Boeh and Cathy Hardin.
- p2P LIVE 27-29 October, Cambridge, Canada. Trainer: Tameka Bond; Ambassadors: Karen Walker and Carol Painter.
- p2P LIVE 7-10 December, Whitworth Ranch Retreat, Texas. Trainer: Jan McCallum; Host: Stacy Seely.
p2P LIVE events are coordinated by local Ambassadors and hosts, and space is generally limited. If you are interested in attending one of these, please email forever@pixels2Pages.net and we can send you more information.
Forever Retreat Weekends and Forever LIVE! are sponsored by Forever and registration is online – just click the link for details and to reserve your spot.
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!
Our transition to the Forever store
We are so grateful to each of you who have purchased a new pixels2Pages membership in the Forever store! HERE is a link to the latest update with regard to this transition. All monthly memberships have been cancelled at PayPal, as have all yearly ones that would have renewed between mid March and 31 August 2017. If you had one of those, it’s time (or almost time) to click HERE to purchase a new membership. 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 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 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. 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! Did you download your August Blueprints yet? If not, go get them now – click HERE!
If you still have questions about the move, click HERE to see answers to the most frequently asked questions.
August 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.
