If you are like me, you have enough knowledge to be dangerous when it comes to using design software. I am self taught in most of the software that I use so I always figure that I have a LOT to learn. So when I come across new tools that help make my life easier, I get really excited. One of my most recent finds is a new online tool called Canva. The continue to add new, easy layouts that make it extremely simple to create cool graphics for your website, social media and for print. The site is free to use unless you utilize some of the pay-for graphics which still only cost $1 per graphic. They continue to add new layouts, like the ones below:

Twitter: post, or header Facebook: add, post, app, or cover Google+ cover, Pinterest post, or social media Blog graphic Kindle cover Presentation Poster, flyer, postcard, business card, or Invitation …and MORE!

Here is just a quick screenshot of the options:

Once you have selected what you want to create, Canva presents you with pre-built options that are editable OR you can create a design from scratch.

When you have completed your design, you can post it directly to social media or download it as a PDF or image. Your designs are saved on your home page where you can delete or create more. It can become really addictive to play around and create your own designs.
