Welcome to our quarterly virtual crop.  The theme for this crop is Globe Trotters and the hashtag for all crop posts is #p2PGlobeTrottersCrop.

We will be celebrating travel and our members who are located all over the world. But most importantly, we will be celebrating that beautiful multi-colored globe that signifies pixels2Pages™.  Pixels2Pages™ turns 8 years old this weekend! We are going to party every single day and EVERYONE is invited.

Once again, we will be cropping with teams.  Contact all of your friends who you think will want to crop this weekend and invite them to be a part of your team.  Encourage them to view the crop offerings and post their pages using your team hashtag and a hashtag indicating where you are from (ie #NewYorkUSA, #OntarioCAN, #PerthAUS).  It doesn’t matter if your team is big or small. Every page posted to the pixels2Pages™ Community Facebook group that uses a Globe Trotters Virtual Crop offering, FOREVER Digital Art, and your team hashtag will be entered into a random draw for an exclusive pixels2Pages™ Blueprint Collection that will be given to your entire team.  This Blueprint collection will never be sold in the FOREVER™ Store and will never be distributed in any other way.

Important Changes from previous Crops:

We are beginning to make some small changes to streamline your user experience.   First, we have created an agenda so that you can plan for the entire weekend. You can print the agenda and check off the offerings as you complete them, making it super easy to keep track of what is going on.  Click the image to download and print the handout.

The Agenda is also available as a interactive post.  You can access that post HERE.  You will notice that while most offerings are exclusively for pixels2Pages™ members, we have several public offerings available, so anyone can participate.  Be sure to invite your friends to play along!  (Note: Links do not become active until the day and time they are scheduled to post.  Clicking on a link too early will result in an error. If the crop post is a member-only offering, you will need to be logged in to your pixels2Pages™ membership.  Non-members will get an error message when they click on membership-only offerings.)

Tell a friend:

Let people know you are cropping with us.  Use this image as your Facebook Profile image.  Right click it and “Save image as” to get it on your computer for uploading to Facebook:

Badges:

The second change we are making will make it much simpler to collect your badges.  Whenever you create a page using a crop offering, you will find the badge right on that crop offering – no need to search Facebook for it.  How is that for instant gratification? Of course, there are some badges that you can earn that are not specifically tied to a crop offering.  They are all right here.  Click the image below to download a zip file of all badges that you can earn without completing a specific offering.  The badges are organized in folders and each badge is named for the task you must complete.  We work on the honor system, so when creating your badge pages, only use the badges that you have earned.

Our Gift to You!

We always kick off the crop with a gift for our members.  We have something special for pixels2Pages™ members.  Our fun and colorful Globe Trotters Virtual Crop Kit is just for you.  This travel-themed kit contains over 200 elements.  It is the perfect mix of textured and patterned papers along with travel-themed frames, masks, overlays, word art, tags and more.  pixels2Pages™ members can click the image below to go to a page with a direct download.

MEMBER ONLY GIFT

End of Crop Webinar

As we have done in our last few crops, we will be having an End of the Crop Webinar.  You are not going to want to miss this one!  In honor of our 8th Birthday, this webinar will be open to the public.  CLICK HERE to register for the webinar which will be held on April 8, 2018 at 4:00 PM Eastern time.  Even if you can’t make the designated date and time, registering will assure that you receive the recording of the webinar.

One last thing before sending you on your way to crop! Beginning with this crop, all crop Blueprints and freebies will remain accessible to you as part of your membership for as long as you remain a continual paid member.  This is similar to how we handle your membership Blueprints.  We understand that life happens and sometimes it prevents you from being able to crop with us.  We don’t want you to have to worry about how you are going to get your goodies downloaded before they are removed from the site.  We hope that this will alleviate any worries that you might have.  That being said, we strongly urge you to download your goodies at your earliest convenience and be sure to back them up.

Crop goodies will be available to you only if you were a member on or before April 10, 2018. 

There will be no exceptions.

Let’s get cropping everyone!!!

    Hi-I see that the Globe Trotters Webinar has been removed. For some reason I was thinking I always had access to these webinars if I am paid up. Is that not the case? Thanks Faith

  2. Fiona Shugg says:

    I’ve been away so could not join the crop live but I did check in to see what was happening from time to time – what a fabulous weekend you all had.

    Just had a moment of pure panic when I just realised that I’ve not yet downloaded the awesome goodies that were shared. I’d be surprised if you didn’t hear that massive sigh of relief I just let out when I read that last magic paragraph. What a fabulous change -thank you!!

    The agenda is also a fabulous addition and will make it easy for those who could not participate last weekend to work through all of the challenges in our own time.

    Thanks Pixies – you rock! <3

  3. Debbie Hanvey says:

    Love, love, love the changes. I was out of town last weekend so I am just now getting a chance to go through the crop. I am excited about the agenda to make sure I don’t miss anything. Thank you so much!

  4. Rochelle Preston says:

    I’m loving this Agenda & that the crop will be available to me this weekend (April 13-15). I couldn’t attend the crop weekend, but I am attending a crop event this weekend and so I will still be able to “attend” the Globe Trotters Around the World crop, just travelling a little later than the rest of you! Thank you Pixies 🙂

  5. Linda Boothby says:

    Where can we watch the recording of End of Crop webinar? Also, how long will it be available to watch?

  6. Michelle says:

    So much fun and love the freebies! Thank you.

  7. Lanee Willardsen says:

    LOVE the Agenda idea! Thank you so much! and HAPPY! HAPPY! BIRTHDAY to p2P and all Pixies past and present! HUGS!

  8. Chris Bremer says:

    Is there are badge for using the Travel Pre-designed Page?

  9. S Engle says:

    Thank you pixies soooo much for all you do for us. Love the new crop format since I am tied up from now through next week and can only peek in at very long intervals. Will have no time to actually crop but hope to still learn and will even try to make the end of crop webinar, or at least catch it in replay.
    AND HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO YOU ALL!

  10. Sharon Eash says:

    Agenda! Wonderful!!!

  11. Donna Ames says:

    Thank you for the goodies. Not to be a troublemaker, but can we make changes to the PDP to have it count? One project I’m working on is travel related, but it’s 8.5×11. The other project is 12×12, but I’m not working on travel in that one.

  12. Kathleen Eichler says:

    @ Anne, Badges are missing Lead Ambassador Badge just FYI *U* K

  13. Caroline says:

    Thanks for making that last change! Lots less stress.

  14. Toni McDonnell says:

    Thanks for giving us an agenda. This really helps in planning our day.

  15. Kathleen Eichler says:

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the changes… streamlining those badges is sheer genius, AND LOVE the agenda… helps plan the day. (setting a timer helps too) LOL *U* Kathleen

  16. Toni McDonnell says:

    Thank you for understanding that we all cant be in town when this crop happens. This change in keeping it available during our p2P membership is greatly appreciated!

  17. Terry Vachowski says:

    Thanks so much! Sounds like the most fun and stress free crop ever! Happy Birthday!
