Rabbit, Rabbit! Happy New Year
Rabbit, Rabbit, p2Peeps and friends! It is a brand new year and we are looking forward to spending it inspiring you and helping you preserve your precious memories. We have lots of great things planned for this year and it’s all aimed at improving your pixels2Pages experience and building the pixels2Pages membership. Please be sure to read this post thoroughly to make sure that you stay up to date.
Forever Sales Promotions in January
New year, new deals! Click the image below and check out our sales promotions for the month of January.
Now let’s see what was posted on p2P last month – click HERE to see everything posted on pixels2Pages™ in November.
Stay up to date on what’s coming 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!
We hope you have had a chance to download and play with your January Blueprints along with the Freebie Blueprint Collections given out in Pages magazine. These Blueprints are .artpage files (Artisan 5 Format) just like the Enhanced Crop Blueprints that we have given out over the past year. 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.
It is very important that you DO NOT IGNORE THE IMPORTANT MESSAGE which will appear on each Blueprint download page. For years we have advised our members to not open individual Blueprint files and to always import them in to your projects. This has never been more important as Artisan 5 Blueprints are more sensitive to change. Opening the Blueprint in itself won’t cause a problem. However, if you save the Blueprint, the software will automatically create a Embedded Images and an Images folder inside of your Blueprint folder that is linked to the Blueprints you have opened. Deleting that folder will result in all Blueprints that were opened and saved being corrupted requiring you to re-download the affected Blueprints.
CLICK HERE to view a previously released handout which details some of the enhancements of our new Blueprints. Even though the Blueprints feature these enhancements, you can choose to 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 email@example.com to work out a suitable substitution.
Announcing the Pixie Power Committee
This past November we began our search for people to join our advisory committee. The purpose of the advisory committee is to provide global representation of our membership at all different styles and Artisan abilities. The PPC will provide valuable feedback on all pixels2Pages offerings and site organization. The PPC will be an integral part in creating an even better p2P.
Change to our Video Offerings:
Starting this month we are making a change to our membership offering. Every Thursday we release a brand new pre-recorded video. Starting this month, we will be replacing one of these videos with a twenty to thirty minute webinar. This webinar will have a specific focus and will be held live during the month. The live webinar will be member only and the date and time of the live webinar will vary month to month. This will give more people an opportunity to participate in the live webinar and ask questions. On the last Thursday of the month, we will post the recording of the webinar for p2P members along with any video notes and the webinar will become a permanent part of the membership. Members who did not get to watch the live webinar will be able to watch the recording and ask questions in the comments section of the post.
This member-only webinar does not replace Designer Feature webinars or any other webinars that we make available to the public. We will announce the date for the live viewing of our first webinar in a few days. The recording will post on the site on January 31, 2019.
Visit our training channel to view the recordings of the entire Maximize Your Membership webinar series. The series includes the full pixels2Pages Overview as well as individual webinars focusing on Blueprints, Videos, Bright Ideas, Tips & Tutorials, Crops, and Facebook. Click HERE to visit our training channel. If you are having trouble accessing these webinars, we recommend using Google Chrome.
This past November, we released the first section of our Resource Guide which focused on Text. This month we will be releasing two installments of the Resource Guide. The first installment will be Fast Formulas which will focus on quick and easy page creation techniques. The second installment will focus on the Cut Ribbon. Stay tuned as we make progress on this easy to navigate resource.
Also, we have made some changes to the site recently that we want to make sure you are aware of. Last month we archived all of our 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.

2019 Live Events Calendar
p2P LIVE! events are coordinated and sponsored by local Ambassadors and hosts, and space is generally limited. Our 2019 Calendar is starting to fill quickly. If you are interested in attending or hosting a pixels2Pages LIVE Event near you, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: Generally each p2P Trainer will do no more than two events per month, and we try to limit events to two per weekend. If you are considering hosting an event, the sooner you contact us about it, the better.

Welcome to the latest issue of Pages Magazine. Our massive Holiday issue came bearing gifts for all. There are also a few p2P member-only gifts in this issue. As long as you were a member before December 31, 2018, you are able to download those freebies at any time. Please share this valuable resource with all of your scrapbooking friends. They don’t have to use Artisan to be inspired by the pages. Use the freebies in this issue and show us what you create by posting your pages in the pixels2Pages Community group. Pages will be published three times per year. Our next issue will be available in or about April 2018. It will be a smaller issue, but it will still be inspiring and fun.
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: If you have downloaded the 2019 Itinerary Pages Collection on or before December 30, 2019, please note that the download has been updated to correct an error on the Day embellishments. Please re-download and replace your previously downloaded Blueprints.
