Every day is a new chapter. Here at pixels2Pages, we love stories and we love to read the stories on all the pages that you post. It doesn’t matter if you have gone on a grand vacation, had a baby, lost a loved one, or had a great cup of coffee, every story counts! So let’s open the book and get our pens ready.
We have made a few minor changes for this crop in hopes of making things easier for you and for your p2P team. Please read through this entire post carefully. We recommend that you scroll down to review it all; then, if you need to come back for details, you can click the following links to go straight the section you need:

Once Upon A Time Crop Agenda
We make it super easy for you to know when a crop offering will post by creating an interactive agenda. The interactive agenda is complete with links that activate at the time the offering is released. No need to search for the latest crop offering, just click the image below to go to the agenda and then keep the link handy.
FOREVER Collaborative Albums are a great way to share your pages. During the crop, the entire pixels2Pages community is engaged and sharing in the pixels2Pages Community Facebook group. We encourage you to visit, share your creations, and comment on other people’s creations. We also encourage you to share your pages in our FOREVER Collaborative albums. The collaborative albums allow you to share and view sample pages in an organized way. Even if you share to our Facebook group, we encourage you to add your pages to the collaborative album as well. This is also a great way for those of you who are not on Facebook to see pages and share your pages. CLICK HERE or the image below to access the collaborative album for this virtual crop.
When you add your images to a collaborative album, please make sure you credit the kits, kit designers, fonts and offerings you have used. This will allow others who are inspired by your pages to know what you used to create them. Once you have added your pages to our collaborative album, you will not be able to edit the details, so it is important that you do this in advance. You can do this in one of two ways:
- Save your page to your desktop. Right click the image, go to properties and then go to details. Type your credits in the Comments section then click OK. You can now upload your image to the Collaborative album by clicking the green upload button shown in the image below. p2P Members click HERE to see a tip that details this method of adding information to your image.
- Upload your image to your FOREVER account. Edit the details in your account. Then click the link to our collaborative album. Click the “Add From Library” button to bring a copy of the image with credits from your FOREVER Account into the Collaborative Album.
Please note that any pages posted in our Collaborative albums may be used in pixels2Pages Galleries, social media pages and Pages magazine.
Once you have visited our collaborative album once, it is easy to revisit the collaborative album time and time again right from your FOREVER Account. Click on the Albums tab and there will be an “Shared Albums I’ve Visited” link. Click the link and you will see the Collaborative Album.
We are trying something new time – we are making ALL badges available at the start of the crop. You will still see helpful links to the badges on each offering, but we thought this may make it easy for you to select what you need when you need it. In the past we did not release all of the badges because we wanted to have an element of surprise; however, we heard many requests to have badges in advance and all in one place. You are still on the honor system for badge collection – please download and use only the badges you earn. Click the image below to access all of the badges for this crop.
You can select multiple badges or choose them one at a time to download or copy to your FOREVER library. [NOTE: if you download multiple images at once, they will download in a zipped folder.] At the end of the crop, we encourage you to create a page showcasing your accomplishments. If you prefer not to create a page, you can create a FOREVER Album, add the badges you earned to it. See instructions below to share your badge album.
New Badge Submission Process
Everyone who earns 20 or more badges and submits a badge page or shares a badge album will earn an exclusive Blueprint. We have a new process for badge page submissions. You must follow this process to claim and receive your Blueprint.
You will need to share the link to your badge album from your FOREVER Badge album by clicking on the “Share Album” button and copying the link (do not simply copy the browser URL),
or you can click your Badge page that is posted in the pixels2Pages Community Facebook Group. Once the badge page is opened on your screen, copy the browser URL.
Once you have the link, CLICK HERE to submit a link to your badge album/page. This is the only way you will receive your bonus Blueprints. Badge pages must be submitted by end of day on May 11, 2019. Blueprints will be sent out once per day starting Monday, May 6, 2019.
We work on the honor system at pixels2Pages. You do not need to post every page that you create, but please do not collect badges that you have not earned.
The Bingo Card Template is a great resource that can get you motivated to try new things and complete more pages, so we are giving you the Bingo Card template at the beginning of the crop.
Spell PIXIE by filling any horizontal row. Spell MAGIC by filling any vertical column or spell PIXIE MAGIC by filling any diagonal rows. Every Pixie Magic Bingo Card posted to the pixels2Pages™ Community Facebook group or posted in the Games Collaborative Album will be entered into a random draw for a free digital art kit. Bingo pages must be posted before the crop ends on Sunday, May 5, 2019 at 8:00 pm Eastern.
Click the image below to download your Bingo template. Your Bingo badge is included in the Badges album.
Note: The Bingo template operates like membership Blueprints. You import a page from your computer. We recommend saving your Bingo card to your desktop. You can delete it once the crop ends because it gets changed every crop.

Cropping with a Team/Raffles
At every p2P virtual crop, participants are encouraged to crop together as a team using a team hashtag and posting their pages in the pixels2Pages Facebook Community. At the end of the crop, a page is randomly selected and the person who created the page, along with their entire team, wins an exclusive Blueprint collection! This Blueprint collection is not available in the FOREVER Store and is not distributed in any other way. We wanted these Blueprints to reach a wider audience, but we still want them to be exclusive and a great win for a team. All crop participants will have the opportunity to win the featured exclusive Blueprint of the Day each day! There will be multiple winners every day. There are three Blueprints in the exclusive collection, so a different Blueprint will be raffled off on each day of the Crop. At the end of the crop, one lucky team will win all three Blueprints.
Remember, it is easy to win and crop with a team. Just create a team hashtag and use that hashtag in the credits every time you post a page in the pixels2Pages Community.
