Easy > Free Printables Design School

I've spent the last several years teaching myself how to use more of the aspects of my free tool to create more and different types of digital and for-print products.

When I started, there were no online training videos on Youtube for using this tool in the way I wanted, so I learned by digging in and trying things as I created.

Now, you can learn what I've learned and create your own Journals, Planners, Workbooks and more!


It's so much fun!

Someone who watched me teach live said it looks like art class. In some ways it is, but less messy!

Many folks think that you can't do much with a completely free tool and when I started, I wasn't sure this tool would produce print quality files. But, I've learned how to do just that using one additional free tool.

In early 2018 I jumped at the chance to learn how to use powerpoint to create and edit planners and journals.

I'd spent years paying others for planners and workbooks that didn't quite fit what I needed. My daughters both had health issues that needed tracking and I desperately wanted to learn how to create the tracking pages we needed.

So, when I had the opportunity to learn to use Powerpoint to create them myself, I was excited, to say the least.

But, I did it without buying Powerpoint to work with and instead used a free tool. The course I learned from was fantastic and the controls close enough between my tool and powerpoint that I was able to teach myself how to do much of the same process.

As my business has grown, I've had many customers ask me what I use and if I can teach them because they find Powerpoint just a little overwhelming to edit templates with.

I agree about Powerpoint. I bought it at one point and just found it confusing and messy compared to the tool I use. Now, I'm not knocking Powerpoint. It's a fantastic tool and much less expensive than software like Photoshop. It can also do a few things that my tool can't (or that I haven't found out how to do yet).
But, this tool can do everything you need in order to create fantastic, fun, pretty or elegant templates, and it's free!

The totally free tool is Google Slides

Comments from Course Users

"I just spent the entire morning going through every video in the course, and all I can say is "GREAT JOB!!" You obviously know what you are teaching and use Google Slides on a regular basis. I have bought too many courses over the years (including some pricey highly touted ones on some of the big course platforms!) where it was obvious that the course creator was not a regular user of whatever he was trying to sell, he just was doing the video to make a quick buck. Not the case here - you have done an excellent job, and should be very successful with it."

Melody Wigdahl -

"I took this course because I was challenged by PowerPoint and had heard that Google Slides was easier. Now, I have a clear understanding of how Google Slides work. Thanks to you, I feel like I can use it to complete projects without getting overwhelmed. I really enjoyed your presentation style and the bite-sized content videos. You made everything seem doable and not overly complicated. I believe that you gave the most insight as to how you personally make choices when it comes to setting up your projects than any other course I have taken. Those courses are good but I always feel like something has been left out. That was not the case with your course. I felt like you were sitting here beside me at the computer and we were working through things one on one. I really liked your tips on creating a scene on the book cover. I had not seen anyone else do this before."
