While we're on the subject of Christmas, last year I made this Christmas-Themed Kraft Paper. It's only Christmasey in color scheme, so it will be useful any time you have use for red, green, or natural colors.
I believe at the time I included a freebie, so I'll do that again, this time the bright green one, which I think is pretty.
In the process of redesinging my blog...and then maybe wanting to call it by my name rather than Cute + Useful...and moving it back and forth between Sqaurespace and Wordpress at least twice, I chucked all my previous posts. Not cool but I think that is what I did. Oh well. Here's the green paper.
I've wanted to finish this set of digital papers for a while, so why not now? All ready for Christmas.... The patterns, especially the hand-drawn ornaments, remind me of Andy Warhol's early advertising years, when he was drawing the shoes.
See what I mean? The paper pack is available, as usual, in my shop.
Made these Girl Power Derby Award Certificates by special request. They have the standard kit available; Style Awards, Place Awards, and Pit Passes. My customer also requested Drivers Licenses and a deluxe set of Place Awards (categorized for Daisies, Brownies, Juniors, Cadettes & Above and Overall), so I made those, too. All in the shop.
These are a variation on the original Powder Puff Derby Awards, which have always been popular, but not everyone's keen on the whole "Powder Puff" thing. Does anyone have a consensus answer on whether this is spelled "Powder Puff" (two words) or "Powderpuff" (one word_ I've also made ones that say "Race Like a Girl."
Lately I've made them with the name of the Derby as one of the fillable fields, which I think is the way of the future. Lots of different Derby Names out there. The pit passes aren't quite ready on those sets yet.
A really lovely set of marketing pieces for Mother's Pride, a preschool in India. The design is by Out of the Box, of Delhi, India. I've tried to find their site but instead have found collections of their work at other locations, this one the most complete.
Look close, all the flowers are children. At first I totally missed it.
I made up a couple more items to complete the "Race Like a Girl" Derby award certificate set. I imagine these will most often be used for Girl Scout derbys (sometimes called Powder Puff Derby, and I have a set that says "Powder Puff Derby" on them, too...)
Anyhow, I think these would also work great for Activity Days, if you wanted to have a girls' derby similar to the Pinewood Derby the boys have for Scouts.
Here's links to the individual pieces in my Etsy Shop:
- Style Awards (every girl gets one of these, and they're all different)
- Drivers Licenses
- Pit Passes
- Places Awards (1st, 2nd, 3rd, Honorable Mention)
All feature fillable fields so you can customize everything for your girls.
And...here's a freebie, a particiapation award. You can download it here. Happy racing!

Ha! I had to search all over the internet but I finally found this on a website with a U.S. shipping address. Amazon, of course. The joke is that there's a kid's portion, a lady's portion, a man's portion, and the "I could eat a horse" portion (which turns out to be the 4-person portion).
Since I mismeasure pasta all the time (and not just for the too much, sometimes I barely make enough for us eat our dinenrs out of a figer bowl) I should buy this...even it if it wasn't cute!
