If you’re a blogger or business owner, there’s a very good chance that you’ve heard of Canva.
I LOVE Canva. Like, a lot. And it might be one of my most used tools in my Pinterest marketing business. For everything from Pin design and social content creation & scheduling, to creating custom proposals and PDF’s; it can do it all.
Believe it or not, this post is not actually a love letter to Canva. It’s actually a post about showing you how to use a pre-made Canva template and customize it to be cohesive with your brand!
What I mean by this is that when you start with a template, it’s basically just a starting point. Don’t feel like you have to keep every single element in the original template design. If you want to make sure you have access to the original, the “duplicate” button in Canva is going to be your best friend.

Remember the Modern Pin Pack I mentioned above? Let’s customize a Pin from it with the above font pairings and some different colors. Here’s the original template design:
And here’s the customizations:
You can clearly see in all of these Pins that there is so much customization that you can do to make any Pin template cohesive with your brand.
