Hi, I’m Crystal!

You may know me as the owner and team leader over at Oakes Creative House, but for one day, I’m your expert strategist, ready to help you walk away with a deeper understanding of how sales funnels can elevate your business.

I pull from my 15+ years of experience in business to provide you with exclusive resources to amplify your marketing strategy. I’ve strategized and implemented marketing tactics in 22 countries within 8 languages, and come from a family of entrepreneurs. Needless to say, I GET IT!

I’ve seen too many businesses suffer from being paralyzed by stress and questions about social media. Social media CAN become overwhelming, but there are strategies and processes that you can implement to create your business’ digital presence. This workshop is designed to help you set aside the time needed to really lock in a social media strategy that works.

An Oakes Creative House Workshop

Personal. Hands-on. Engaging.

People learn best when they’re invited into the conversation.

It’s common sense! How often do you enjoy being lectured at for hours? You’re not alone!

That’s why, at our workshops, we prioritize…

Our workshops are packed with valuable info that you can apply to your business!


You should bring a laptop, access to your email, a folder with your visual branding elements, and any specific questions or design examples you want critiqued.


It’s perfect for anyone struggling with their brand’s visuals, feeling unsure about their design choices, or wanting to learn more about the strategic use of branding elements.

This agenda is subject to change as we continue to develop the workshop! We are also taking the information forms into consideration when tweaking this agenda. However, at this time we are planning:

9am 9:30 am: Getting settled and a bit of networking

9:30 – 12pm: Focused training on the foundations of design and live critiques of our work examples

12pm – 1pm: Break for lunch. Light snacks will be provided. You are free to bring your lunch or have something delivered. We are also working on partnering with a close restaurant who can delver all at once and take orders in advance. We did this to keep ticket costs low! You can network during this time as well.

1pm – 2:30pm: Hands-on design practices in Canva + access and info about our style guide workshop

2:30 – 3pm: Group Q&A + Wrap Up

We are capping the attendance of this event to be able to offer hands on critique and help. Our team will be in the room ready to circle the room and provide hands on help. We have 1.5 hours total planned of hands on help.

Basic level Canva skills are helpful when putting this workshop to practice. If you don’t have this, we encourage you to watch the Canva training videos prior to the workshop to have an initial understanding.
