Creating a Power Sheets Vision Board in Canva

STEP 1: CREATE A PINTEREST BOARD FOR YOUR VISION BOARD

First things first, you’re going to want to round up the inspirational images that really speak to your heart. Hop on to Pinterest and create a secret board where you can curate images that inspire you.  This will also give you a rough idea if you are heading in the right direction with your vision board.

When selecting your images, take into consideration the goals you identified in your Power Sheet Prep Work.  This year I am focusing on relationships, business and fitness, so I made sure to find images that not only remind me of those goals, but also inspire me!

STEP 2: CREATE A FREE CANVA ACCOUNT

Before getting started, you’ll need to sign up for an account at Canva. It’s 100% free to create an account, so don’t worry about any surprises. Once you’ve signed up and logged into your account, you can start creating your vision board.

STEP 3: START YOUR DESIGN IN CANVA

Once you are logged in and all set up, select the US letter size (or any other large vertical) option. I am printing mine to put into a document sized frame to put on my desk, so this size ( 8.5 x 11 inches) was perfect!

STEP 4: CREATE A FOLDER TO STORE YOUR IMAGES

Create a folder on your desktop or Google Drive and save your most inspiring images to that folder. Downloading all the images to one location, will keep everything orderly, so you are not searching all over the place for your images.

STEP 5: CREATE A PHOTO FOLDER IN CANVA

This is somewhat optional but if you use Canva a lot, images have a way of piling up! Creating a folder dedicated to your Vision Board photos in Canva, will keep all your images uploads organized and easily manageble.

STEP 6: IMPORT YOUR IMAGES INTO CANVA

Import your images you downloaded from Pinterest to your hard drive into your Canva Vision Board folder all at once. Easy Peasy!

STEP 7: CREATE YOUR GRID

Go to Elements > Grids and play around with the layouts until you’re happy with the way it looks. Your grid selection will most likely be heavily influenced by the layout of the images you selected in step one. But don’t worry, whether your images are predominately horizontal, vertical, square, or a combination Canva has you covered with a huge selections of grids to choose from. 

STEP 8: CREATE YOUR VISION BOARD

Here comes the fun part! Add in your images, inspring quotes or words +  especially your personality!

I knew from the get-go I wanted my vision board to have a mellow cohesive feel, so I selected neutral photos with lots of white. If you are someone who is energized by bright colors, your vision board will look totally different than mine and that is absolutely ok, there is no “wrong” vision board, as long as it reflects your personality, and your hopes and goals. 

STEP 9: PUT YOUR VISION BOARD WHERE YOU CAN SEE IT EVERYDAY

With the business of everyday life, it is easy to lose motivation, but your vision board is there to constantly remind you of what you’re working toward, and what you would like to accomplish to put it somewhere you will see if often!

Bonus: If you’d also like a digital version you can load to your desktop so you can view it while you work, you can also create a desktop wallpaper version following the same steps (1920 px x 1080 px).

If you haven’t ordered your Power Sheets yet, you can still grab yours. You can order One-year dated PowerSheets or a 6-month undated PowerSheets, Depending on when you’d like to start. Remember, there is nothing magical about January 1st.  The day you are ready to set purpose-filled goals is the perfect day to start, whether it is today, tomorrow, or even February 1st.
