Mother’s Day Special
Mother’s day is the perfect time to stop and show appreciation for the mothers in your life. Whoever and wherever they are. Whether you’ll be spending the day with your mum in person, catching up virtually, or just stopping to think about a mother figure in your life, please take the time to tell them how much they mean to you! There is no better time, than NOW, so do it and do not postpone or wait for another opportunity! Every moment we have with them is precious and we need to treasure it!
This Mother’s Day, take a moment to show your appreciation for every kinda mum and surprise her with a copy of one or more of these awesome homemade tried and tested Recipe eBooks.
Not sure if you know but Canva is an awesome platform to create all your images for your blog and other social media. I have been using Canva for nearly 2 years and on the Pro version for more than a year. To me, it is the best thing since sliced bread.
Canva is a graphic design platform, used to create social media graphics, presentations, posters, documents, and other visual content. The app includes templates for users to use. The platform is free to use and offers paid subscriptions like Canva Pro and Canva for Enterprise for additional functionality.
Together with this, I will highly suggest that you also look into The Complete Bloggers Template Toolkit as this will help you with navigating Canva, and you also receive TONS of templates for Canva to download and use immediately.
I recently purchased The Complete Bloggers Template Toolkit and have not been able to work through a quarter of the templates, but I am totally wowed by the incredible templates and the huge variety. I have used them already, and just love to work with them.
As an example, I leave you with this image I created by using one of the 100’s templates (Newsletter Header Image). In this one, we used a ‘grid’ and an ‘overlay’ to soften the original image. Please do not miss out on this course or the Canva offers.
