Canva - Simple, easy graphic design tool

I am really enjoying this new (at least to me) tech tool. I attended a session at TCEA 2014 presented by Dr. Cathy Moak from ESC 6 called "45 tools in 45 minutes." Some of the tools she talked about I use all the time, but I had never tried Canva. This site is allows users to use templates and customize presentations, posters, business cards, and other graphic items.

The site has thousands of customizable items that you just click to change text, colors, and make them your own. No one has to have any experience in graphic design, but can still make gorgeous, professional products. Users have the ability to upload their own images to embed in the designs also. 

When you are finished designing, you can share it with a link or publish it as a png image for the web or download for print as a PDF. Many of the items can be used for free, but some of the images/templates have a fee. Many possibilities for this simple, but powerful online tool.
