    Hi Liz,

    Canva is a great way to make graphics, headers, etc. I had a terrible time with my G+ and FB cover photos; I went to Canva and BAM in no time at all they were done. Still haven’t finished with the Twitter one yet.

    Have a great day. Monna

      Glad it helped Monna. It’s great when you find a simple, easy tool.
      Have fun.

    Thanks Liz, I had a look round Canva and think its great. There are so many good free background images. What makes it quite unique is its built in templates for creating the right size social media images for Facebook headers etc.

    • Liz Delaney July 21, 2014 at #

      I agree Sue. Getting the templates to the right size can be a nightmare – especially for newbies….
      Thanks for the comment.
      Have fun with it.

    Hello Liz, I did just hear about Canva the other day and did write the name down but that is as far as I went with this. I loved your video, this is so cool, I am having a few challenges with my G+ cover photo, off to canva to see if I can figure this out there.

    Thanks for sharing… Chery :))

    Hi Liz,

    Canva is one of my favorite “toys.” One that is so important especially on our blogs. We need to create our own images. If not, even when we pay for them, the “terms and conditions” change and we can be charged.

    I have so much fun with Canva for not only my blog images, but also Facebook!


    • Liz Delaney July 27, 2014 at #

      Thanks for the reminder re terms and conditions for paid images, Donna. There is so much to be wary of isn’t there/
      Thanks for dropping by. I’m glad you are a Canva fan.
      Take care

    Love Canva!
    I have come across this before,but it just got left in the draw!! Thanks to your post and video Liz, I am re-united and very happy.
    I use several imagey sites, but love that Canva has templates in the correct sizes for headers etc.
    Thanks for this Fabulous Friday Finding :)

    • Liz Delaney August 12, 2014 at #

      Glad you have reignited your love for Canva Jacs. I have been guilty of leaving things in the drawer also. There are so many great programs out there.
      Have a good time playing.

    This is right up my alley Liz! This would be a great way to share quotes and such. I see Monna said she used it for some headers… interesting! Thanks for the review of this great FREE tool.

      It’s a pleasure, Dawn.
      Glad you found a new toy….happy playing..
