It’s almost time for our next Virtual Crop! Are you ready?
All p2P Virtual crops are self-paced, and the agendas will be posted at the beginning of the crop. You decide whether you complete some or all of the offerings. We do not expect you to get up at 6:00 am to check a crop post! All crop posts will remain available for the duration of the crop, and if you are a p2P member, you can go back and look at them at any time! Post times vary because we have members all around the world. Our goal is to have new posts publishing during waking hours world-wide. Just remember that you can work on them any time after they have been published!
Crop with a Team
It’s more fun to crop when you crop with friends, even if you aren’t in the same room (or even the same state or country!) with them! If you haven’t already done so, take a minute to contact your Artisan-loving friends 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 Virtual Crop offering, digital art from the FOREVER Store, and your team hashtag will be entered into a random drawing for an exclusive pixels2Pages™ Blueprint Collection that will be given to the entire winning team. This Blueprint collection will not be sold in the FOREVER™ Store and will not be distributed in any other way.
Frequently Asked Questions:
What is a Virtual Crop? It is similar to an in-person scrapbooking event, but done in the comfort of your own home and/or with friends and at your own pace. The pixels2Pages™ team will provide a fun combination of videos, challenges/bright ideas, games, Blueprints, and digital art recommendations. You create pages using these offerings, learn something new, and make progress on completing a project that you can print at the FOREVER Store.
Do I have to register? No. Registration is NOT required. You just show up and have fun! A pixels2Pages™ membership is required to access most of the offerings.
What should I do to prepare for the crop? Organize your photos and have groups of photos selected for each offering. Think in terms of one crop offering equals one or two pages, then set a goal for how many pages you’d like to complete. The readier you are, the more you’ll get done!
Where will I find the crop offerings? All offerings will be posted on www.pixels2Pages.net. Once the crop has begun, you can access all of the offerings in the order they have posted by clicking “CROP” or“RECENT” on the mango website navigation bar, or by clicking the links on the crop agenda.
If you are a Facebook user, we will post shout-outs for each offering on the pixels2Pages Facebook Page. We will not post any other items on our page during the crop so that the most recent offering will always be at the top of the page, just below the agenda.
Most of our crop activity will take place in the pixels2Pages Community Facebook Group. That is where you and other croppers will post your completed pages. We invite you to see what others have posted and comment on them if you want. That’s a great way to get inspired and motivated if you get stuck, and it’s fun to do when you need a break!
How can I share my pages? We ask that you share your completed pages in the pixels2Pages™ Community Facebook Group. Your page must use a pixels2Pages™ offering and feature only content purchased in the FOREVER Store. Retired content and content now owned by FOREVER under the StoryBook Legacy™ brand are welcome. We ask that you credit the offerings and digital art you used in the caption of your post.
How do I share my pages if I don’t have Facebook? The pixels2Pages™ Team will create a FOREVER Collaborative Album where you can upload your completed pages. While most of our games and drawings require you to participate in the crop in the pixels2Pages Community Facebook Group, you will have an opportunity to win prizes by adding your pages to the Collaborative Album if you are not a Facebook user. To use a collaborative album, you will need to have a FOREVER Storage Account or a free intro account. You will first upload your layout to your FOREVER Storage or intro account and add the appropriate credits to the description of your image. You can then add your image into our collaborative album directly from your library. Alternatively, use THIS TIP to add credits to your pages first, then upload them directly to the collaborative album.
Do you have any offerings that explain virtual crops in depth?
We have two very helpful webinars that you may watch if you have not done so:

- Navigating the pixels2Pages™ Community: This webinar shows you how to use Facebook to its fullest. Control your group notifications, save links to your favorite pages, and more with the information provided in this informative webinar.
