Getting started with Canva

If you don't have a Canva account already, go ahead and create one - it's free!

Once you're logged into Canva:

  • Click the Create a Design button.
  • You're going to see a bunch of different templates. Choose US Letter underneath documents. This will open up a new tab for you.

Canva has some beautiful templates that you can choose from, so definitely give those a look and see if you're interested in using any of those.

In this tutorial, we're going to create a very simple worksheet in a few steps without using any templates.

Creating your first worksheet

  • Go to Text and add your heading. 
  • Once you've typed int he title of your worksheet, go ahead and move this up to the area. Center it.
  • Then let's go ahead and add some body text. I'm going to align this to the left and stretch it out but I want it to be centered.
  • Let's change this to align left

Don't forget, you can always go in and change whatever fonts you would like to use for your worksheets. It's very simple to do this in Canva!

Creating a footer

Now we want to have a little color block on the footer.

  • Click Shapes.
  • Choose the first square.
  • Make it full width and take it all the way to the bottom and shrink it to be however thick or thin you want.
  • I'm going to change it from white to orange, since that's one of my brand colors. You could do black, pink, or choose any color that you want. If you want to do a custom color, just click on the plus sign and you can either enter in the hex code or pick the color out from the color picker.
  • Let's use this black color, keep it simple.

Make it match your brand and your business.

Now I want to go ahead and have the same thing on the right side, and it'd just be my copyright information. Instead of re-doing that whole process, I'm just going to click copy and make it align right.

I love that Canva has little guides so you can see it's perfectly centered and aligning where you want it to.

Now you have the foundation for a worksheet. If you wanted to have this be a multiple-page workbook all you would need to do is click the duplicate button and now you have a second page. You could do this endless amounts of times as needed. 

And one more tip

I would recommend that you create this basic template just like I showed you. This one-page template that has no specific details except your website and your copyright.

Any time you want to make a new worksheet all you have to do is make a copy of it.

When it comes time to download this worksheet, all you need to do is click download and you have a few options. I usually keep it at PDF standard. It'll take a few seconds to prepare your design and in a matter of minutes you have your free worksheet.

Now you know how to create a free worksheet or workbook using Canva!
