There are days that I feel like a graphic designer, but I am not.  CANVA can do that to you.  

CANVA is a web tool that allows you to create amazing cards, flyers, blog posts and social networking headers.  It is extremely simple to use.  First you decide the size you want your graphic to be.

I chose Presentation since it is a great size for my Tackk newsletters.

Next, choose your background.  There are tons of free backgrounds, but you can get some really awesome ones for a dollar.  If you pay for a CANVA graphic, you have 24 hours to use it as many times as you want.

Then choose from hundreds of great visuals like stickers, infographic icons, and more.

Add your images, text and props and BAM, you are done!

Click download or link - then decide whether you want you image to be a png or pdf.  I use png since most of images are used for the web.

Now wasn't that easy!  And FYI - CANVA just created an iPad app last week - so now you can unleash your creative genius  on your iPad!  Or better yet - your students can!
