Master Canva and Learn How To Design Social Media Graphics and Printables

Most bloggers and online marketers understand the importance of design. They know that great content will only get them so far if they're not attracting enough attention with scroll-stopping designs.

However, their passion involves writing. Not design.

Even when using simple tools like Canva, most content creators struggle.

The problem is...

  • They don't fully understand how to use Canva so they end up frustrated and wasting time.
  • They figure they know how to use Canva well enough but wonder why it takes SO long to create a pin.
  • They don't understand how to best edit a template because they aren't comfortable with the program they're using.
  • They think that because they are somewhat familiar with Canva, they assume they know "design" and then wonder why their graphics don't convert.
  • They waste countless hours googling and YouTubing "how-to" videos.

But it doesn't have to be that hard!

Peek inside the course:

"Kara is my GO TO person to learn about design.

I have googled and googled for tips and tricks and have been so disappointed.

Now I know whom to turn to when I need some inspiration on how to design.

I also have purchased her template pack which is AMAZING.

If you want to learn how to design better. K.A.R.A is your Person."

- Sneha (

"Using the line trick revolutionized my world. I either used multiple text boxes to align text lines CLOSELY which was very time consuming or left them s p a c e d out which just looks so funny to me now!

The other was the trick for moving between objects that are layered. I can't tell you how many designs I "ruined" because I had to move layers out of the way to get behind in order to change colors and then couldn't put it together again. Think Humpty Dumpty! Now I just click and change!

- Christy (Happy Hive Crafts)

Imagine opening up a project inside of Canva and feeling completely confident knowing that you'll finish your design with no frustration, curse words, or walking away.

How would you feel if you fully understood not only how to use Canva, but how to use it for designing high-converting printables, social media graphics, and more? How would you feel if you knew that you'd no longer "mess up" a template because you actually understand the concepts of design?

You don't have time to waste googling or trying to figure it out. Let me show you exactly what you need to know!

Here's the thing...

I'm not just going to spew design tips or features of Canva at you and leave you hanging. This isn't just a "How To Use Canva" course or a "How To Create A Printable" course.

Instead, we're going to deep-dive into all the tools Canva has, and you'll learn exactly how you can use them to design faster. I'll show you how to design different elements and how they relate to the graphics that, as a blogger, you'll need to create. You'll master all the hacks, tips, tricks, and workarounds.

Then, we'll pull it all together in lessons on designing printables and social media graphics so you can confidently create designs (or confidently edit templates without the fear of "messing them up") that will grow your blog.

Why should you trust me?

When I started blogging, I learned how much design actually went into blogging, and since my old-school Adobe program discs didn’t work anymore (and because we were on a tight budget), I tried to find a free replacement that could do all the things that Adobe did. Turns out that didn’t *quite* exist, but I found Canva and instantly started playing around. 

I spent years learning the in’s and out’s of Canva. I figured out all the hacks and workarounds and started teaching them to people. I’ve created thousands of designs in Canva, including entire products, courses, and social media graphics. I’ve taught and designed templates to over 15,000 bloggers, and I’m excited to share this knowledge with you, too!

Some things others have said about Kara...

"Kara is such a great teacher. I love how she breaks things down. I had no clue how to create eye-catching images or work on branding until I came across her stuff. Her warm personality in her video tutorials make you feel like you are sitting down one-on-one with a friend teaching you."
-Ana from

"I've learned so much from Kara! Graphic design is really intimidating. Kara takes concepts that are complex and makes them really easy to understand and implement on your own. Her video tutorials are authentic and genuine; you can tell she really wants her readers to be successful with their graphic design. I can't say enough positive things about everything I've learned from Simplifying DIY Design!"
-Chrissy from Joy Through Chaos

Hi! I'm Kara!

I've been a certified graphic designer for over 10 years and I'm a certified Canva creative as well! I started using Adobe products in the 8th grade and was certified as a graphic designer before graduating high school. I participated and won several local and regional design competitions and basically- I'm a huge design geek!

One of my hobbies is figuring out how to do the fancy design stuff using easy-to-use tools and showing people my tricks! I absolutely LOVE helping bloggers get back to doing what they love- writing!

While templates are my JAM, I fully believe that even with a template, you MUST understand how to use the program to the best of your ability. Templates can't save you if you don't understand the tool you're using or the basic design concepts behind the design. This is why I created Confidently Canva!

Let's get started!

I know that one of the biggest things that hold bloggers back is design, which is why I LOVE creating easy-to-use tools like templates to help people. The problem is that if you truly don't understand the program you're using or design concepts in general, templates might not help!

This course is basically my shortcut for you. It's not just a "how to use Canva" course, and it's not just a "how to make printables" course; it's going to break it down into features, concepts, and pull it all together into a design with visual demonstrations every step of the way.

Are you ready to get started?

We've Got Answers For You!

Do I need Canva Pro?

While some of the features discussed are Canva Pro, I do my best to let you KNOW they are a pro feature and give workarounds or tips so you can still get the same results!

I'm not a blogger. Is this for me?

If you design marketing graphics, I think you'll still get a lot of use out of this course. That being said, I make a point to discuss how bloggers specifically will be able to implement the things I teach.  

I've used Canva before. Is this for me?

I frequently get the comment "I've used Canva for years and had no idea you could do that!" However, after going through all the lessons, if you truly feel that you haven't learned anything, please reach out and we can chat!

But I use your templates!

Templates are definitely my JAM- I love giving people a done-for-you solution. However, I recognize that some people feel uncomfortable using templates because they don't know how to use Canva or they don't understand design and they are afraid to "mess it up." This course was created to fill that gap and help people feel more confident, even if they aren't designing from scratch!

Is it updated?

It's no secret that Canva changes a LOT! So much so that I completely scrapped the first version of this course (Canva Masterclass) and re-filmed all the modules-- plus added a lot more! I also added a lot of text tutorials and screenshots so that it can be easily updated as features are added or changed!

How is this different than Canva Masterclass?

PLEASE DON'T PURCHASE THIS IF YOU ALREADY HAVE CANVA MASTERCLASS! Confidently Canva has been built to replace Canva Masterclass. I don't like fishy marketing tactics, so all the students who purchased Canva Masterclass will have access to this course for free. Please check the Teachable account you used to purchase Canva Masterclass and reach out to me if you have any problems!

What kind of format is this in?

It's mainly in video format since design is much easier to show than to tell, but a lot of the lessons are also stepped out in text+screenshot format. I've also included a few downloadable assets for you to use as well!  

Is my payment safe?

Your security is extremely important to me. I have partnered with Stripe and PayPal to process payments through ThriveCart. Both provide secure encryption to ensure your transaction is 100% protected.
