Hi there! I'm Christy and I am not a designer... I repeat... NOT a graphic designer.
And, I was still able to make this calendar in 10 minutes. Here's what I did in pictures (with descriptions under each photo/step). If you're wondering how I got "there," just check the menu bar on the left side and/or top... and look for the yellow dots!
After deciding on a template, customize it! This month says January, but it's not January 2018... the dates don't match. Continue to step 2...
Ah ha! May has the dates on the days that I need for January 2018. Change the name of this month to say "January".
Add a box for event details.
Add some text for event details.
Change the color of the text, so you can see the event details.
Move the text to the event details box.
Add event details.
Not a must, but I wanted the fonts to match the fonts already in the template. Cool thing about Canva is they list them at the top of all the fonts. Same with colors.
Add the Apartment Life Logo.
(Download the logo in PNG format from the CT toolkit and upload it to Canva by a simple drag/drop.)
