How To Find Starred Templates on Canva

Remember when you had to hire a designer for everything you needed? Need a design for a Facebook post? Call a designer. Or a billboard for an anniversary? Call another designer. Needless to say, that’s not the vibe anymore!

Thanks to our little friend Canva, you no longer have to go through that stress. Canva truly has something for everyone, from the lifestyle blogger on social media to the man on a self-care journey. The icing on the cake, the cherry on top, the ABSOLUTE BEST PART is that you don’t need to start a design from scratch. Canva has over 200k templates that cut across ALL works of life. These starred templates on Canva make it easy for you to design like a freaking PRO!

But wait fellow bloggers…it gets even better. If you stumble on a template that might be useful later, you don’t have to memorize the tag or take a screenshot. Canva allows users the option of starring elements, including templates, just like you can save a post on Instagram. However, if you look for a ‘save’ icon somewhere, you definitely won’t find one. Instead, you’ll see a star icon. Just tap the star option to save a template!

Once starred, you can go back ANYTIME to use it. But, starring a template is just the first step. How do you locate your template when you need it? We found it challenging when we tried it out first but don’t worry, we’ve tried it & we’ve got you covered. And in this post, we will show you how to find your starred templates on Canva in a few simple steps. Let’s get started!
