2018 Tech Tip #1 - Canva

As the holidays approached, I wanted to do something a little different on the blog. At this time of year, it feels that everyone is a little short on time (myself included). We are trying to fit in shopping, family time, cookie baking, and hopefully still a little shut eye each night. As we approach Christmas break (only 9 and a half days, but who's counting...) I'll be sharing 10 tech tips to help us close out 2018!

Tech Tip #1 - Canva

What is it?

Canva has easily become one of my favorite tools because it is so easy to use and makes beautiful products! Canva is a digital design tool that lets you create logos, flyers, and more. I have used it to design stickers, posters, and update branding for one of my professional organizations. It's student friendly, works on computers and runs in an app form on mobile devices.

How do I get started?


  1. Go to https://www.canva.com/. I love that I can login with Google and don't have to make another account. 
  2. Click "Create a Design" and then select the type of design you want to create. For the one below I chose "Blog Banner".
  3. Then customize however you want! There are tons of free options, but paid options as well. Download it in your favorite file type and you're done!
