Guess what I made just for you? A spring-themed adult coloring book! It’s totally free (no strings attached), so grab it and print it out now (or just save it for when you really need to relax after a hard day).
You know how much I love adult coloring, right? I have an entire category dedicated to it, after all. I recently learned how to use PowerPoint to make printables and thought it would be fun to make a free coloring book for you. No strings attached, no newsletter signups required (although I’d appreciate it), no hoops to jump through. Just click here (or on the image above) to open it in a PDF. Then you can save it for later or print it out right now.
Why am I giving you this free adult coloring book?
Because why not? I don’t have an ulterior motive here, I swear. I’ll be honest, it’s not crazy fancy (which is why its free). It consists of 10 spring-themed designs ranging from super easy to more of a challenge. I’m practicing using PowerPoint for printables because I’m in the process of branching out into products like writing prompt journals and planners (both physical through Amazon’s print on demand program and digital for those who want to print it themselves).
With blogging getting more and more competitive, and networks focusing more on millennials, I have to put my proverbial eggs in more than one basket. Making money with just a blog is getting harder and harder every year.
Anyway, like I said, it’s not the fanciest adult coloring book on the planet, but it’s free. I’ll be adding more over the next couple of weeks. I’ll also be expanding into other fun free printables for you, so keep an eye out for those.

Oh, and if anyone wants to know how to use PowerPoint to make printables, here’s a quick rundown of how to format the slides to any size you want. It took me a while to find a good tutorial because apparently it’s like a closely guarded secret in the printables community or something.
- Open PowerPoint (I have the Office 365 subscription ) and start with a blank presentation
- Change the first slide layout to “blank.” Not required, but it makes things easier down the line.
- Click on “Design” then “Slide Size,” which is over on the right-hand side
- Choose “custom slide size,” then make it 8″ by 11.5″ and make sure you click “Portrait” for orientation
Once you’ve set your slide size, the next step is to add your images and what not. If you’re using just images, go to “Insert,” then “Picture,” and just navigate to the file, pop it in, and play with it until it’s centered right. If you’re mixing text with images, you can use the different slide formats to mix and match. Just make sure you leave the rulers on and give yourself a bit of a “bleed” area. That way, nothing gets cut off on funky printers. That’s pretty much it!
Unfortunately, I can’t tell you how to make super complex designs…yet. I’m getting there. I just wanted to give you a rundown on resizing the slide to make your printable “base,” , since I didn’t even know that was an option.
I hope you like my free spring adult coloring book! Keep an eye out for more free printables as I practice my skills and learn how to make more complex designs. 😀
