It’s a new month and a new year. Happy New Year to all of our friends near and far. The fact that you are reading this blog post proves that you are incredibly blessed. May 2021 bring you good health, prosperity and lots of togetherness when the pandemic comes to an end.
With the new year rolls in lots of changes. This is truly a time for new beginnings. We are actively working on a new site. We will be introducing some new PPC (Pixie Power Committee) members. Stay tuned for their grand reveal during our crop later this month, though you may have a few guesses who they are as you see things get posted during the month. We have some even bigger changes to announce.
The pixels2Pages Team with the help of our PPC has produced some amazing offerings throughout the past few years, but as our membership grows, we find the need to grow our team. We are officially growing the pixels2Pages Team. We are bringing in three incredible women who are extremely talented and have been an active part of the pixels2Pages community. Over the past 2 years, the pixels2Pages Team has had a chance to work very closely with these women in their role as PPC members. These three women are joining our team as Sprites while they train to do all of the things that the Pixies do. We think that Sprite is the perfect name as a Sprite is another name for a Fairy (hence Pixie). A sprite is also a term used in Artisan to determine a computer graphic – Have you ever gotten the pop-up about Flattened Sprites?
Please join me in welcoming Cindy Rold, Pamela Smith and Nathalie Séguin to the pixels2Pages Team.
A Challenge for You.
We want you to have a creatively productive year in 2021, so we have a challenge for you. We want you to create a page using every Bright Idea posted for the year. At the end you will have at least 52 pages completed. Rachel Pearce of Seatrout Scraps has created this wonderful Seamless Layflat Template with 52 photo openings so you can keep track of your progress. At the end of the year, we can all share our pages with our wonderful progress. Click the image below to download the template.
Note: If using Artisan 5, create a custom project size (23.75” x 12”) to use this template.

The all new Getting Started with Artisan 6 Interactive Training Manual for Beginners:
At FOREVER Live, we revealed the interactive training manual for Artisan 5 Users. This training manual takes all of our public beginner training, organizes it and puts it all in one place. Now that Artisan 6 is available, we have updated the manual so that all of the handouts properly reflect Artisan 6. Take a few moments and check it out.
A Reminder about our auto-renewing memberships and FOREVER coupon functionality:
In May 2018 FOREVER released functionality that would remind members when their membership would be renewing. CLICK HERE to read our post regarding same. As we have indicated in the past, many problems arise when people prematurely cancel their membership and while some things we can work around using a manual process, other things just cannot be fixed. It also takes a lot of resources to make manual adjustments.
All p2P memberships are auto-renewing and non-refundable. pixels2Pages is a FOREVER-owned product and all payments and major functionality is controlled by your FOREVER account. Please DO NOT cancel your membership simply to deactivate the auto-renewing feature. A pop up cancellation confirmation explains exactly how much you are turning off when you cancel your membership on the FOREVER site.
If you are a monthly member and do not wish your membership to renew for any reason, please diary a reminder a day or two before your membership renews. Monthly members do not receive a reminder email from FOREVER. You can see exactly when your membership is going to renew by viewing your recurring payments in your FOREVER account.
If you are a yearly member that does not wish to have your membership automatically renew for any reason, we also recommend that you diary a reminder in the days and weeks leading up to your membership renewal. You will also receive emails from FOREVER with a early renewal discount offer 30, 14, 7 and 1 day before your membership automatically renews. You can see exactly when your membership is set to automatically renew any changes to your membership closer to the renewal date.
Now let’s see what was posted on p2P last month – click HERE to see everything posted on pixels2Pages™ in December.
