Canva Templates (free)
View all Canva templates (sorted by layout category) https://www.canva.com/templates/
Remember that you can mix and match – choose a planner page with a book cover, or a proposal with a worksheet. Just make sure to change the font so it’s consistent throughout your workbook or ebook!
Any of these would work for an ebook:
- Worksheets https://www.canva.com/templates/worksheets/
- Proposals https://www.canva.com/templates/proposals/
- Flyers https://www.canva.com/templates/flyers/
- Newsletters https://www.canva.com/templates/newsletters/
- Presentations (My fave since each presentation template often has 10-25 page layouts in one theme – this works best with Canva Pro/Canva for Work, simply click Resize and choose 8.5×11 newsletter or flyer, then adjust layout to new size) https://www.canva.com/templates/presentations/
Use these Canva templates for workbooks, worksheets or planners:
- Easily find each of your brand colours (the unique colour code is called a “hex code”) from your website or sales page with the Colorzilla extension – for Chrome https://www.colorzilla.com/chrome/ or Firefox https://www.colorzilla.com/firefox/
- Discover which fonts were used on your website or sales page using WhatFont Chrome extension https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/whatfont/jabopobgcpjmedljpbcaablpmlmfcogm?hl=en
- Need more help using Canva? They have lots of tutorials. Find them here: https://designschool.canva.com/tutorials/
- If you are just starting out and need to choose your colours, try just picking one main colour and exploring the different colour palettes at Design-Seeds. They even have hex codes to make it easy to stay on brand! https://www.design-seeds.com/by-color/
