easy digital design with canva

I admit it-I am a lover of all things digital. That being said, programs like Photoshop scare the bajeezuz out of me. 

I hope to get over that fear one day, but for now, Canva is my GO-TO resource for all my digital needs. This program can take away all the fear people may have about digital design by making it so stinking easy to use!
If you can "click" and type, you can create an infinite amount of digital designs.
Some features:
  • SO many templates to choose from. Pinterest, Instagram, slides, all manner of blog and social media presets, even invitations.
  • Create to-do lists, menus, journal pages, planners, etc.
  • You can create a brand kit with 3 fonts and as many color pallets as you want so they are preset for 1 click application.
  • You can create folders to organize your creations.
  • Literally thousands of free (much more with membership) photos, graphics.
  • Animation options.
  • Post directly to social media.
  • Download designs as PNG, JPEG, MP4
  • Much, MUCH more!
Canva offers a variety of pricing. There's free with limited access, then there are many designs you can purchase by the "piece" usually $1 per (say you see a great cactus you MUST use, you can buy it with one click), and Canva Pro at $12.95/m which includes, as far as my experience, everything!
If you pay for the year it's $9.95/mo. I use these dozens of times a week and one day I'll spend that $119, but for now, I pay by the month.

They offer a 30-day free trial and you can cancel anytime.
If you do end up canceling, your designs are saved, BUT if you have used a premium graphic, in order to download it, you'd have to buy them. 

With a quick google search, you'll find tons (and TONS) of tutorials out there. Canva itself has an amazing course that is super easy and brings fast results. Best of all: the course is...

Yes, the course is totally free!

If you're not sold on the awesomeness of Canva, you can always take a look at the course before signing up.
