Rabbit, Rabbit!

Rabbit, Rabbit, p2Peeps and friends!   This year has slipped through our fingertips.  I can’t believe we are at the very last Rabbit Rabbit news post of 2018 and there is so much to share with you. Please take a moment to thoroughly review this post so you won’t miss out on a thing, and be sure to share the details with others.

With the Holiday season upon us, the entire pixels2Pages team would like to take a moment to say Happy Hanukah to all of our members and friends who will be observing Hanukah starting tomorrow.


Forever Sales Promotions in December

The year is nearly over, but that doesn’t mean the sales are.  We know you are still doing your holiday shopping and there is still time to give the gift of FOREVER.  We have so many deals for you that we couldn’t fit them all on one flier!  Click the image below to preview our December Deals flier for December 1-10, 2018.

December Calendar

Stay up to date on what we have coming up this month thanks to Anne’s beautiful and detailed calendar.   We encourage you to download and print the calendar each month to help you keep track of all that’s available to you.  Consider printing this calendar in black and white if ink usage is an issue for you.

 


Virtual Crop: The countdown is on!

We were going to save the details of our crop theme until a little later in the month, but we are too excited to wait!  We hope you will join us on February 8-10, 2019 for the Color Pop Crop!  This theme promises to be vibrant and fun.  As always, the theme will be flexible enough to work with any project you will be working on.

In the weeks and days preceding the crop, we will share information that will help you get ready so you can have the most productive crop experience ever.  Some of the things we plan to share are:

  • a sneak peak at some items that will be given out during the crop
  • a list of offerings that will be helpful during your crop experience
  • an agenda, including a recommended number of photos/types of photos for each offering
  • exclusive deals on digital art bundles
  • tips about preparing for a productive crop

Mark your calendars and tell a friend!


Blueprints

The time has come!  Beginning with the release of our January 2019 Blueprints later this month, our Blueprint format will be changing.  Blueprints will still have the flexible and unique designs that you are used to, but they will be created in Artisan 5 so that we can take advantage of all the wonderful features Artisan 5 has to offer.  We recommend that you save and organize your new Blueprints with your old ones.  They will auto-sort and behave just like our previous Blueprints.

Here are some of the differences between our new Artisan 5 Blueprints and our previous Blueprint format:

  • Because they are specifically designed for use in Artisan 5, the file structure of the Blueprints has changed.  New Blueprints will be .artpage files instead of .page files.
  • All shapes on the new Blueprints will be live shapes, allowing for true previews on the cutting board, easy shape manipulation and text formatting, and more.
  • All lines on the new Blueprints will be live strokes, allowing you to easily switch between a simple, compound, or patterned stroke pattern in a variety of dash styles.
  • Mask effects will be applied to live photo holders for quick and easily fill and manipulation.

Those are just some of the enhancements of our new Blueprint format, but the best part of it all is that you can decide to just use the Blueprint as is! They are just awesome that way – customize them in any way you want.  Here is a sneak peak at some of our first quarter Blueprints:

One important thing to note about our Blueprints is that the only way to get these designs is by becoming a pixels2Pages member.  At this time, this new Blueprint format cannot be sold in the store, so if you are not a member, you will be missing out.  pixels2Pages members will receive 18 Artisan 5 Blueprints (9 unique designs in both 12×12 and 11×8.5 sizes, valued at $40) every month that they are a member.  JOIN TODAY so you won’t miss out.

If you are an Artisan 4 user and do not wish to receive Artisan 5 Blueprints, please send an email to tbond@forever.com to work out a suitable substitution.


Website Organization

We have gotten lots of feedback from p2P members and peeps regarding the quantity and organization of material on the website.  We hear that when members search for something on the site, they sometime receive results with outdated information or they simply cannot find what they are seeking.  We have begun implementing many changes to make it easier for you all to navigate the website.

This past week, we announced that we have begun the huge undertaking of creating a Resource Guide, where everything on the site will be organized in specific groups and sections. CLICK HERE to learn more about our Resource Guide.  While we will not have any new installments of the Resource Guide during in December, more will be coming in January and throughout 2019.

One immediate change we are making is the archiving of Artisan 4 offerings.  While this information is still valuable to the very small percentage of our members who are Artisan 4 users, it can often hamper efforts of Artisan 5 users who are looking for updated information. We have not removed the Artisan 4 offerings from the pixels2Pages website; we have removed them from our current membership levels (pixels2Pages Monthly and pixels2Pages Yearly).  If you are an Artisan 4 user, or need access to Artisan 4 offerings, please CLICK HERE to add yourself to the Artisan 4 Archive.  Be sure to select “I have an existing account” and log in using your existing user name and password.  This will add the offerings back to your specific membership.  Keep in mind that the offerings will then show up in your search results and it is up to you to determine which of the offerings is right for you. ”

    I normally save the calendar as a jpeg file because I don’t have access to a printer at the moment. This month for some reason the file seems too small & even when I enlarge it it becomes too blury to read.

    • Tameka says:

      You cannot save the calendar as a jpg. It sounds like you are saving the thumbnail which will definitely be too small. You must click to open the PDF and then you can take a snapshot or save the PDF as a JPG. The PDF of the calendar is 300 dpi.

  2. Jan Vomacka says:

    Maybe I need a “Navigating Issuu for Dummies”

  3. Jan Vomacka says:

    Tameka,
    I went to Issuu, and I cannot find any Pages Magazine issues after May 2018. Pulling my hair out, and I can’t spare it! 🙂 I tried it using both Firefox and Chrome. What am I doing wrong??

    • Tameka says:

      That was the last issue of Pages magazine. Due to a decreased team size, we had to find ways to make the work load more manageable. Pages magazine has been reduced to 3 (possibly 2) issues per year. The next issue will be out later this month.

  4. Carolyn Carroll says:

    The changes sound great. At first I was a little concerned about the changes to the BPs. But now I am really looking forward to them. You all did a great job of warming me up to them. Thx

    I have bookmarked several of my favorite p2P posts. Will the changes to the website affect my links? I am an A5 user. If I add myself to the A4 archive, will I be able to remove myself from the A4 archive?

    • Tameka says:

      Your links will not be affected unless you have links to A4 offerings. If that is the case, you can simply add the A4 offerings back into your membership and the links will work again. The link to add the A4 offerings back are above.
