Start2Finish: 30th Wedding Anniversary

The inspiration for this page was the beautiful photos my daughter took of my husband and me on our 30th wedding anniversary this year. The photos were taken in Monterey at Lover’s Point. I knew I wanted a “dreamy” kind of page and that it would involve masks. I found the Les Trois Sauvages Bundle by Little Feet Digital Designs the perfect kit. It had masks and beautiful blues and golds to build my page.

In this tip, I'll highlight some of the key things you'll want to keep in mind when using the internet.

Tech Tip: Glossary The Internet

Welcome to this month's glossary tip, which is all about the Internet. While most of us are 'connected' on a daily basis, many of us don't know much about the internet, how it works, or what the terms associated with it mean. And no worries - you don't have to know how the Internet works to be able to use it! However, it can be helpful to have a vocabulary to use when talking to others about it. As usual, this tip will be definitions only, and next week's tip will dive a bit deeper and help you understand what the terms mean to you, especially related to using Artisan.

Artisan Tip: Adding Pages To Collaborative Albums

Using collaborative albums at Forever allows multiple people the opportunity to upload photos, scrapbook pages, or documents to one central album. This comes in handy for things like group trips (or any trip where more than one camera was used), team sports, school or class events, family reunions or family history albums, p2P crops, and many more group activities. Here at pixels2Pages, we use Forever collaborative albums as a way for you to share your completed Artisan pages with others. If you've participated in one of our quarterly crops, or if you've been to a p2P LIVE event recently, you are probably acquainted with this concept, but you may not know all of the ins and outs of the process. This tip will explain how you can add credits to your completed pages before you add the pages to a collaborative album.

Design Principle Webinar and Tip: Proportion

We’re nearing the end of our Tip+Webinar series on Design Principles, and today we’ll be discussing proportion and how it affects the look of our scrapbook pages. Proportion is a critical thread between art and mathematics and is an important principle of architecture. Proportion in art and architecture is how we see the elements and spaces that make up one structure (or grouping) and how they relate to other structures and to the whole composition.

All of us on the pixels2Pages team breathed a collective sigh of relief when ALL of the comments about changing the Double Page Spread (DPS) Blueprint naming system were positive. YAY! We're glad you are happy with the change. Now that you've had a couple of weeks to live with the new names, you may be wanting to change the names of your other DPS Blueprints. I know it sounds like a daunting task, but it's not that bad. This tip will give you some suggestions for things you might want to do (or consider doing) and how to go about changing those names.

Tech Tip: P2P Blueprint Naming Systems Old And New

Change is a beautiful thing, isn't it? It's what keeps us on our toes, moving forward, learning new things, and adapting. Last month, we changed our Blueprint format for the first time ever, so that we now offer Blueprints created in Artisan 5. This change has been a huge hit with our members (and with the p2P team), as the new .artpage Blueprint format is so versatile and robust. The discussion about changing the Blueprint format elicited lots of comments on our Facebook Community group about Blueprints, renaming Blueprints, and the myriad of ways that different members have renamed or reorganized their Blueprints. Reading those comments led us to decide to make a change (going forward) in our Blueprint naming system - just for double page spreads - for the first time since we began distributing them. This tip will review our original Blueprint naming system, explain the new double page spread (DPS) Blueprint naming system, and offer you some advice on whether to rename the DPS Blueprints that you already have.
