Troop Buttons for Everything!

Troop Buttons for Everything! Buttons, Buttons, Whose Got the Buttons? Sometimes I create graphics for clients, sometimes out of necessity and usefulness, but sometimes I design for FUN. And these are fun. I’ve created several buttons to completion and have quite a few still in draft form. At first, I figured they would make cute Facebook cover photos. Then I made matching cover photos to go with them. But I love them so much that I can see them being a troop logo or t-shirt design too! The sky is the limit. If you want a hot air balloon, an […]

I first discovered this when I created my aMuse Journey in a Day packet.  Over time I received dozens of emails from frustrated leaders who could no longer find the resources at […]
