"...the end product I want

and need..."

You are an angel! Your templates are STUNNING! You basically have taken the end product I want and need but can't create myself... I am too excited! I LOVE Canva. It is very therapeutic for me, so I set myself a time limit or I will be on there for hours! Thanks again for creating AWESOME templates.

Coach Nykki,


"Highly recommend!"

If you're thinking of working with Maria - do....I'm so grateful that I did, because otherwise, my lead magnet would still probably be at the drawing board a week later. Highly, highly recommend!

Melina Abbott


"...literally the fastest..."

I want to give Maria Saracen a shout-out for your amazing logo templates! I'm in the middle of creating a new program and this is literally the fastest I've ever drafted several logo designs (and I have several other logo templates). It took me maybe 10 minutes to create some I actually liked (usually it takes me an hour). Thank you so much!
