(5 min) How To Collect Your Favorite Design Elements In Canva

In this video tutorial, you will learn how to: 

Access the “Starred” Folder Feature

Canva offers a convenient feature called the “starred” folder, allowing you to bookmark your favorite design elements for quick access. Whether it’s a stock photo, content template, or unique font you love, you can easily mark it as a favorite by clicking on the star icon next to the item.

Save Photos, Templates, and Fonts for Future Use

Once you’ve starred a design element, Canva saves them automatically to your “starred” folder. This means that whenever you need them for a new project, they’re just a click away. No more scouring through endless options or starting from scratch each time you design something new.

Find + Star Similar Items

What if you come across a design element that’s similar to one you’ve already starred? Canva simplifies the process by allowing you to easily find and star similar items. This feature not only saves time but also ensures consistency in your design choices, helping you maintain a cohesive look across your projects.

Create Custom Folders Within the “Starred” Folder

To take your organization to the next level, Canva lets you create custom folders within the “starred” folder. This means you can categorize your favorite design elements based on themes, projects, or any other criteria that makes sense to you. With custom folders, you’ll never struggle to find the right asset again.
