Adventures in Canva: Romance Flyer

I know it’s not kidlit-related, but I made a thing and wanted to share! I’m still trying to play around with templates in Canva, so I tried my hand at a contemporary romance flyer that I can display at my little teller window at circulation. Here’s what I came up with:

I didn’t put in titles, QR codes, authors, because I want to keep it unfussy and hope it sparks conversation. If this works, I’ll give it a shot with some YA titles, some MG titles, and display them by our pick-up station, where patrons grab the books they requested. I’m trying to create opportunities for browsing in a space were we can’t browse for the moment, if that makes sense. Let me know what you think, please!

  1. I use Canva for all the book list graphics I’ve been putting on my blog the past year! I do just put the whole cover on, though, not the little circles. I’ve found it easiest to put one cover in, get it the size I like, and copy and paste it all over for all the cover spots I need. Then I can use them as image place holders and drag and drop the other cover images into them, as Canva doesn’t have a preset cover-shaped image placeholder, and dragging individual covers to the same size is a pain. Yours is eye-catching, though!
