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 […]

New! Brownie Printable Graphic

New! Brownie Printable Graphic Hi my Girl Scouters, I’ve had a lot of requests for a high resolution Brownie web graphic that can be printed as well, one similar to this one in my TPT shop:So I made a brand spanking new one with crisp, fresh colors.  The watermark is not on the actual graphic.  The new graphic is 2800 x 1240 pixels and 300 dpi resolution so it can be used for web or high quality printing!  Dual purpose!

Freebies: 2015 Tags and a Trefoil Line!

I love my iamstrawjenberry (formerly iamgirlscouts) peeps!  I’m working on all of your suggestions for resources, so keep them coming.  First, I updated the gift tag for 2015.  To make it fancy, simply mount it on a couple of layers of scrapbook paper and punch a hole in the top.  Voila!  You can add it to bridging gifts, cookie incentives or end of the year treats. To see how I used them in 2014, go here. The tags are updated yearly! Download the tags for the current year here. Another suggestion, from another awesome reader, was to create a horizontal line or […]

As Promised! Finally a Brownie Badge Tracker!

As Promised! Finally a Brownie Badge Tracker! I’ve finally created a Brownie Tracker….and it’s free! As a bonus, I’ve created three versions of the top graphic.  So you can choose which one you like best and replace it in the document.  Simply “right click” the image and save to your computer.  In the tracker document, double-click the top graphic on the first page and replace it with the one you saved.  It’s that easy!   It’s my hope to get the following projects up in the next two weeks, just in time for Back to Troop: Leader Binder Packet Kaper […]

The Bittersweet End of the Year….and a Freebie!

The Bittersweet End of the Year….and a Freebie! I’m always relieved when the last service unit leader meeting comes and goes in June.  Our service unit ends the year with awards, raffle prizes and a mother-daughter ice cream social.  Afterwards, I breathe a sigh of relief that there is one less obligation to contend with and one more Monday a month that I can enjoy summer!  I think back to February and March when I toyed with the idea of holding meetings during the summer.  I always come to my senses in May and realize that summers off are a […]
