An Easter Freebie & A Giveaway!

Last month I teamed up with my two good friends, Rebecca Cooper & Kristina Proffitt, to bring you a freebie for St.Patrick’s day. We had so much fun working together that we decided to make it official & turn it into a monthly collab kit called “Freebies on the Fifth”. We hope you enjoy our little collection this month!  Make sure to check back on the fifth of each month to download our new freebie.

You can download my contribution to this month’s freebie HERE.

Kristina’s download can be found HERE & Rebecca’s download can be found HERE.



I’ve also created a digital kit that coordinates with this month’s freebie.  The paper pack below is just a sneak peek of the collection.  It won’t be available for sale until next Friday, but you can enter to win “The Spring Color Collection” by leaving me a comment below. I’d love to know what you look forward to most about Spring.  You have until next Thursday evening at 8pm MST to enter.  I’ll announce the winner on Friday, as well as post previews of the entire collection here on my blog. Good luck!

St.Patrick’s Day Freebie

Today I’m happy to share a super cute printable that I created with my good friends Rebecca CooperKristina Proffit.  I’ve gotten to know these fun & talented ladies through phone calls, skype chats, & emails over the past four years & I love it when I get the chance to collaborate with them!  Just recently I was able to meet up with Rebecca for the first time in person when we roomed together at a blog conference in Salt Lake City. Hanging out with Rebecca was my favorite part of the trip!  One of the things we discussed was putting together some more freebies for our blog readers.  If you enjoy freebies & want to see more in the future, please help us spread the word by sharing this post on Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter.  You can get the entire set by visiting each of our blogs:  Simple As That (Rebecca’s Blog) & One-Happy-Mama (Kristina’s Blog).  Hope you enjoy them & have a wonderful St.Patty’s Day!

Valentine’s Day Freebie

I was making some valentine’s for my girls to take to school & thought I’d share these with my readers too.  I used my Epson R2000 printer, along with Epson’s Ultra Premium Presentation Paper Matte to print these.  Make sure when you print your valentine cards to put the setting on “borderless”.  You’ll then cut the pages in half & then score them in the middle to make a card…easy peasy!  I hope you enjoy them!

2014 Life Planner Video

This is a quick video of my 2014 Life Planner. You can purchase the download HERE.

Also, here’s a few testimonials from women who have used my planner over the years…

“There are many planners, calendars, “to do list”, organizers, but just one Life Planner and it is this one.  This life planner has changed my life.  I love the fact that it has everything you need to have an organized, planned, and balanced life…all in one place. Also, it thrills me that every section has inspiring quotes that invites you to reflect on how to work that section to your fullest! When you work full time and have two wonderful active boys, a husband, a house and even a new puppy, it can be overwhelming to keep track of all the things that you need and want to do without forgetting to take time for yourself.  With this planner I have been able to juggle all my responsibilities by using the “PLAN”, “CREATE”, “DESIGN” AND “CALENDARS” parts by lifting my spirit, body, and mind with the “NURTURE”, “LIFT”, and “INCREASE” sections.  During this year I was able to enroll in a Gym, complete the 30 days gratitude challenge, start many projects that I wanted to do for a long time, and nurture my family and friends relationships among many other things. All of these things have been planned, designed and achieved in part thanks to the excellent resources available in this planner.  I’m counting the days to get the 2014 Life Planner so I can start designing a new year full of positive thoughts, uplifting plans for me, my family and friends. My goal is try to be as organized and productive as I can without forgetting that the most important thing is to live one day at a time doing my best. Thanks Crystal for helping me with this wonderful creation! It is an enormous blessing!”  - Glenda de Hoyos, Puerto Rico

“I purchased Crystal’s planner & it has been my all-time favorite planner!  Not only has it kept me organized, but I love the motivational aspect of it.  It reminds me to keep moving forward towards my goals & helps keep me on target in all areas of my life.  The bright colors & beautiful design gives me a daily boost of energy:)  Thanks Crystal~ for keeping this busy mom-preneur of 4 kiddos & 2 biz super organized!!”  - Monique Reyes

“Crystal, I have been following you since I discovered your digi-scrapbook papers, that I totally LOVE!! Last year I downloaded your planner and I used it daily. Let me start at the beginning. I had started to feel VERY overwhelmed by how busy my life had become. Being a wife, mother of 4 small children, working full time, and holding a Primary calling was making my head spin trying to keep everything organized. I hadn’t used a planner of any kind since my school days and so I was thrilled to find your 2011 planner. I knew the moment that I saw it that it would work for me. It took me a little while to figure out how to weave it into me life but once I did I couldn’t go a day without using it! I have noticed such a change over the past year. I am more focused, prepared, and productive. One of the best things about the planner is that it is not just about keeping dates and appointments organized but it keeps me aware and focused on the ‘big picture’ things in life as well. Reminding me of who I really am, why it is important to spend time on me and how I am able to serve my family and others around me. You have truly blessed my life and made my head stop spinning. I am so excited to see more of the new planner and to put it to good use.” – Heather Cooper

“I used your planner, and I loved it!!! I felt more together and everything was right there. I loved the quotes, and added to it through out the year. I love all the different areas of focus and made me step back and think about myself and how things could go better in life. I think that your previews look awesome!!! Can hardly wait to get myself on track for the new year!!! Thanks for all your hard work and sharing with us!” – JoLynn Thomas

“I downloaded your planner & LOVE it!  It helps me to prioritize my time & when I stray  it helps me refocus, re-prioritize & gives me fresh inspiration!  Thank you so much!”   Love, Oly
