We are so glad you have decided to join us for our second crop of the year.   We have created this interactive agenda so that you only have one post to keep track of with handy links to all of our crop offerings.   We have a fast, functional, and fun set of offerings for you over the next three days.  We know you will enjoy each and every one.

The hashtag for this crop is:

#p2POnceUponATimeCrop


 

PRINTABLE AGENDA AND CHECKLIST

Click the image below to go to the post where you can download a printable version of the agenda or the crop prep checklist.

INTERACTIVE AGENDA

  • Note: The links to the crop offerings will not work until (and after) their scheduled times. Exception: you may register for the End of Crop Webinar at any time.  Non-members do not need to register.  The webinar will be streamed live to the pixels2Pages Facebook Page and pixels2Pages Facebook Group. The recording is reserved for pixels2Pages members only.
  • Our website will utilize a caching system so that pages will load faster during the high traffic times of this crop. What that means is that our Recent Posts page may not update with the crop posts immediately upon publication. It may take up to 30 minutes for a crop post to show up on our Recent Post page; however, you can access those same posts immediately upon publication by using the direct links on this agenda or links that we post on Facebook.
  • Posts are member-only unless otherwise indicated.
  • All times listed are Eastern Time (US).
  • This crop is self-paced. 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!

Click on the links listed below to be taken directly to each crop offering.

You need to be a pixels2Pages member on or before May 10, 2019 in order to gain access to member only gifts and Blueprint posts.

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. 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 agenda links above. Your best option is to use this agenda since the caching system we will be using to speed up the site may cause a delay in posts appearing in the “CROP” or “RECENT” categories.
    • 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:

    Hi Tameka
    You did a video about editing a filled text box with image editor and lowering the opacity of the fill. I sure can’t find it now.
    Any direction would be appreciated. Thanks — Julie

  2. desa@desaomli.com says:

    Can anyone tell me how some people added the “Once Upon a time” logo to their badge pages? I right clicked and saved image, but when I pasted it, the logo was on a black rectangle. How do you get just the logo?

  3. Toni McDonnell says:

    I’ve never collected badges before. But after listening to the wrap up, I want the the special BP offered for submitting a badge. I scanned through the info, but I don’t understand what I must do. Please explain, or direct me to the area which outlines step by step instructions. Thanks.

    You all did a great job. I’m only sorry I can never find a dedicated weekend to do it all. But I always enjoy and learn from the wrap up.

    • Tameka says:

      Hi Toni.

      There are two ways to present your badges.
      1. You can add them to a FOREVER Album in your FOREVER Account.
      2. Click the Share Button to get a link to the album and copy that link.
      3. Click the link in the wrap up post to open a google form where you will put your name, email address and a link to your badge album (the one you just copied).

      Or.

      1. Create a page with your badges in Artisan
      2. Post the page to Facebook, open the image on Facebook and copy the URL.
      3. Click the link in the wrap up post to open a google form where you will put your name, email address and a link to your badge album (the one you just copied).

  4. Barb Gallick says:

    Thank you so much for all you do to inspire us and help us learn more, do more, create more!

  5. Andrea Carlson says:

    I put two extra pages in the Blueprint two collaborative album. One is in there twice and the other is already in blueprint collection 1.

  6. Leigh Anne says:

    Hi Tameka!!
    How do I link my badge page in Google Forms??

  7. Kimberly says:

    Can I make a request for the next crop? The printable planning sheets you make for Challenges, BPs and PPMs — could you PLEASE make one with the list of Bingo spots? It could just be a list but it would be ever so helpful!

  8. Marjorie Webb says:

    Is there any way to make the yellow triangle disappear when there is low pixel count? I am using old photos, and I realize that the pixel count is low, but there isn’t much I can do to correct it. I can’t post my pages, because most of them have the yellow warning triangle, which shows on the double-page spread when I try using a screen shot to post for this crop.

  9. Stephanie Beare says:

    I added two pages to the Collaborative albums – one in Challenge #1 and one in Game #1. However, I realized after I added them that I had to add the credits BEFORE I added it to the album and not after. Therefore, there are duplicate pages – one with credits and one without. How can I delete the page without the credits?

  10. Julie Calhoun says:

    What an amazing resource! I just jumped in and having everything here and handy is a huge time saver! Hoping to be very productive this weekend! Thanks, Pixies!

  11. desa@desaomli.com says:

    I joined in late. I can’t find the 9am Facebook live recording

  12. lvail@telus.net says:

    I have downloaded new fonts and they don’t sho in A5. What did I do wrong

    • Tameka says:

      Make sure your fonts are .ttf files (True Type Fonts). Artisan does read some .otf (Open Type Fonts). After you install the fonts, you have to close Artisan and reopen for the fonts to show.

  13. Kimberly says:

    I can’t remember how to get the thumbnail of the completed page into my photos so i can use it on my bingo page. Can you help?
