iamgirlscouts Newsletter Template Now Available on etsy!

There is no better way to keep in touch with parents than a troop newsletter. Whether you send it digitally or print it out and distribute hard copies, your troop will run smoother if parents are in the "know" of important dates and activities.

The newsletter template is a fillable pdf, which means you can download free Adobe Reader software and fill in the fields. This particular template utilizes the Helvetica font with colors matching the boxes. Customization of fonts, style, colors and headers are available for an additional fee.

I hope you all are having a wonderful autumn so far and are enjoying cooler weather and pumpkin everything.  Happy Girl Scouting!


Custom T-shirt Design for Girl Scout Convention Ohio G.I.R.L. 2017

Looking to a cute t-shirt design for your troop's trip to Convention in Colombus, OH? Look no further. This shirt design features the state of Ohio on the front along with the year and phrase "Ohio Convention Here We Come!". Also includes name customization for all troop members.

Girl Scouts Has New Fonts!

Happy Summer Everyone!

I'm so very excited to tell you, Girl Scouts has new fonts!!!  Okay, I'll be honest, it doesn't take much for me to get excited when it comes to fonts. For years Girl Scouts has had exclusive license on their Omnes font family, while using more well-known free fonts for things like the "Girl Guide to Girl Scouting".  I've posted about that here.

In 2016, Girl Scouts desired a font "suite"--a collection of fonts--versatile enough for "age-specific flexibility".  GSUSA enlisted the services of Positype to create fonts that would do just that.  Introducing: Trefoil Sans and Trefoil Slab. These fonts, as you'll notice, are very "Omnes-like".

In addition to the trefoil pair, Positype created the following iterations as well:

Shortbread Script {my favorite}:

Thin Mint Script:

Trefoil DIY:

The above types are adorable, cute and adaptable just like Girl Scouts! Here is the Shortbread Script font in action in the new Art in the Outdoors badge requirements:

I wish that I could say it will be easy to get our hands on these fonts sometime soon, but that is not the case, not for several years. You see the licensing of a custom, copyrighted font allows GSUSA a exclusive license of the font.  Eventually knock-offs will be created and by then it's likely Girl Scouts will "rebrand" again.  I'm happy to see they are keeping the brand up-to-date while still maintaining their uniqueness.  Meanwhile I'll keep my ear to the ground in search of similar fonts!

All Badge Trackers Updated!

The new Art in the Outdoors badges have been added to the badge trackers for each level.  I've also consolidated the add-on page with the outdoor badges on it into the tracker packet.  So all of the badges are available in one complete download. There are two versions: a Word doc and a pdf.  You can find them on the resources page.


Bridging, Rededication and Investiture Certificates are Here!

Yikes! I'm gettin' things done! Fresh off the presses, so-to-speak, are the new bridging, investiture and rededication certificates.  These turned out lovelier than I could have hoped and I so enjoyed making them.

I will personalize each certificate with the following information:

* Girl’s names
* Level (Daisies, Brownies, Juniors, Cadettes, Seniors & Ambassadors)
* Troop Number, Service Unit, Council name, etc. (optional)

The cost varies with the number of girls. The max is 25 names per order so only one troop per order please. Multi-level troops okay! Here's a peak:

Girl Scout Custom Bridging Ceremony Certificate
Girl Scout Custom Investiture Ceremony Certificate
Girl Scout Custom Rededication Ceremony Certificate

The rainbow features all the iamgirlscouts colors, all levels and both the promise and the law.  You can find them in my etsy store.

Summer Camp, Day Camp & Bridging t-shirt Designs Available!

I'm so very thankful for all of my loyal customers who have ordered from me over the past few years. Doing custom work drives me creatively.  In fact it's through doing custom work that I come up with many of the new items that make it into my store.  And this time it's camp shirts! I am in the process of creating about ten different designs that can be purchased and personalized with your choice of name, color, date, graphics, etc.  They can be purchased in my etsy shop. A few examples are below:

I've also added a bridging t-shirt design I mocked up for a troop bridging over the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.   This design is one of many that I'll be adding to the shop this month.  It may be a little late for some bridging ceremonies, but the designs will be available for years to come.

Before I sign off, please accept my heartfelt thank you for your continued support. I heart you guys.

Time to Celebrate! Goodies for Bridging & Beyond...

Summer is approaching and end of the year celebrations are in full swing! Many of you have been with me for years and I've had the fun of seeing troops go from Daisies, to Brownies, to Juniors and now to Cadettes! As I was working on a custom order this week I created a few unique Cadette Troop logos.  These four new logos are all one-of-a-kind and I will only sell one of each. What does that mean? It means you can have a custom logo for your troop that no one else has.

The new logos are available in my etsy store here.  You can preview them below!

2017 Gift Tags are Here

The leader fave is back! I've been creating these gift tags every year since 2014 as a freebie. This year there are two different styles to choose from: the traditional style/color from past years and a brand new super colorful tag in all the vibrant iamgirlscouts colors. Simply download the file, print, affix them to cardstock, punch a hole and you're ready to decorate end of the year gifts.  Whether you're bridging or simply celebrating the end of the school and Girl Scout year, these tags will add a cute touch to girl, parent and leader gifts.

The tags are available in my etsy store here.

Personalized Kaper Charts

Looking for a new, fresh kaper chart? Let me design a custom kaper for your troop. This listing is for the pictured design, with your choice of nine jobs, which I will personalize for you. The final file will be sent as a pdf and a jpg, for easy printing poster-size at an office supply store. Complete the design by purchasing a custom troop logo to go at the top of the chart. Please see my store for personalized logo choices.

Over the last couple of years I've been transitioning most of my products from Teachers Pay Teachers to Etsy.  If you are one of my TpT customers, visit my Etsy store for current offerings.
