Yet another opportunity for you to get more eyeballs on your blog posts via Monday InLinkz


Please accept my apologies for this long write-up but it’s very important and I do not want you to miss this exclusive and absolutely phenomenal offer.

The sale is happening all week and ends on Friday, 7/2 at midnight!

First, let me tell you about my favorite trick for saving time, money, and frustration when it comes to designing.

Yes, you have guessed it, it is by using Templates!

Templates are my best friend when creating awesome designs, and the fact that I do not have to create them myself saves so much time and frustration. On top of that, by using Kara's DIY Templates you will see how awesome they are and how more pleasing and profesional your final product will be.

I know you are probably really excited to jump in so I wanted to tell you about my friend Kara from Simplifying DIY Design- templates are her jam and she has NINE different products on sale right now!

Literally something for everyone! Here is a breakdown:


This toolkit is a collection of over 450+ Canva templates to use for your blog. This collection is a solid foundation that helps new and intermediate bloggers develop a beautiful, branded blog, social media graphics, and create lead magnets to grow their email list.

This is not a step-by-step course; it is a tool that can be used over and over every time you need to design something for your blogging business.


The mega pin creators bundle includes Canva and PicMonkey pin templates designed to help you get clicks and traffic from Pinterest! Whether you are trying to drive traffic to your blog, a lead magnet, or a digital product – these pins will help you get that conversion!

Click the below purple button to check out the Simplifying DIY Design Summer Sale!


This product is different from her others because it does not include Canva templates. These are page templates for the Elementor page builder plugin and LeadPages.

They include all the pages you need for a successful funnel. You’ll get 3 unique styles (Farmhouse/Rustic, Modern Chic, and Feminine Bold) and each set will include:

  • An Opt-in Page
  • A Tripwire Page
  • An Offer Expired Page
  • A Product Sales Page
  • An Upsell Page
  • Video instructions on how to edit


This is a new product that just launched last month! The Five Minute Brand is designed to help you create a brand that’s perfectly you in just minutes.

You’ll choose from over 40 done-for-you logos and brand boards which each include 2 logos and a submark as well as color combos, font combos, design element assets, and inspiration photos. Then, you’ll use the brand of choice to customize all of the other graphics you’ll need for your blog and brand.


Confidently Canva is a complete Canva course! While it does deep dive into all the features of Canva and how to use them along with all my tricks. It is NOT just a course about how to use Canva – it’s going to also teach you:

  • Graphic design concepts and how to implement them as a blogger.
  • How to create a variety of social media graphics
  • How to create printable designs


For the first time EVER she is offering $10 off the first payment (any of the payment options: monthly, quarterly, or annual) — of course, you can cancel anytime.

The DiyDesign Creators Vault is a monthly membership of brand new Canva templates for the blogger who already has a solid foundation and is working on creating new content on a regular basis to scale their blog.

The templates are themed around trending topics and seasons over the course of the year and are designed to help you stay ahead of your content creation.


THREE products for the price of one? Easy yes!! Summer is the perfect time to start planning out your fourth quarter content. Fourth-quarter is a magic time for MOST brands. Most niches will see an increase in traffic, increase in conversions, an overall increase in business growth. Therefore, staying ahead is so important! If your content is done and scheduled, not only will this be much less stressful for you, but you’ll also see the most impact because your content is ready for people as soon as they’re searching for it!

The holiday bundle includes:

The Holiday Template Toolkit: over 90+ Canva templates to help you create and promote content, deck out your social media profiles, and create seasonally themed lead magnets and digital products.

The Holiday Gift Guide Bundle: If you love creating gift guides for your audience, you’ll love this product! It includes 5 full gift guide templates and 15 matching pins to help you promote them!

The Holiday Content planner: This planner will help you plan out, track, and optimize your fourth quarter content. In addition, you’ll be able to map out a general plan for the first 6 months of 2022 so you can keep the momentum going!

If you do not want the bundle, you can still get a deal on these individual holiday products:

  1. Hi Esme,
    I squeaked in today with a post about my favorite brush pens for beginners. I’m subscribed now, so hopefully I won’t miss the parties! I hope you have a lovely weekend.

    • Hi Pam, This is awesome, thanks for adding your post, I saw it coming through, and will still look at it today and share it as well. Thanks for subscribing as this will help you to add your post earlier in the week as this also does help to get more interaction.

    • Thank you, yes we enjoyed a wonderful time on Pender Island, thank you. We have very high temperatures at the moment, and today at around 3pm it reached over 43.5 and the humidity makes it way worse. Just staying indoors with the fan on, unfortunately we do not have aircon in our unit, but we will survive. Hope you’re keeping well at your end.
