Bloggers who’ve written posts for a long time will tell you that there is a process in creating blog posts. Actually most have a set template for writing their posts. Time is money and no one wants to waste time on how to write a post. However part of that post would include images and most importantly the blog title image.
Full-time bloggers are also business owners and really need to spend time writing their posts to provide value to their audience. The fact is, many won’t take time to personalize their blog post image. Some will use a photo that resonates with the post, however there are some extraordinary bloggers that know the importance of visual marketing and use their branding with their images. Consistency with branding elements such as: fonts, colors, design elements, and logo or website URL.

Depending on the social media platform, they can certainly demand attention with their blog image. Using a long vertical image for their blog title image is a wonderful and essential way to get noticed on Pinterest as well as Google+. If bloggers find most of their target market on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn most often, then the horizontal image is best.
You can learn more about creating a blog title image using Canva here. BUT then that’s just more work, right? Okay so then I created this post, which actually gives you the steps to create a blog title template in Canva. Let’s face it. Using a template for a blog title image every time would be so much easier. Canva has a lot of great layouts that you can choose and rearrange as needed for your branding.
Well I’ve taken it a step further to make it easier for bloggers!
Tigerlily Template Collection Premier – Blog Title Image Templates for Canva
I’m super excited to display this first collection! This is what I did:
- Found inspiring photos with different themes
- Created a color palette based on the colors in the photos
- I created the template in Canva with the colors based from the photo inspiration. Paired some fonts to go with the template and design elements. (Which by the way, are the steps listed in the posts I mentioned earlier, therefore cutting out that whole process for you.)
So, what’s the big deal you say? The big deal is I have the template completed for you. All I have to do is share it from my Canva account to your Canva account. It goes to your email inbox for you to click on and BOOM you have a brand new template with: the colors you want, the fonts you want, and the design elements you want.
Okay… so maybe you don’t like all the design elements I put in there.
That’s okay! Just delete it.
I’m sharing an editable template design with you that you pick out.
Here’s an example of one of the template designs:
This design is appropriate for Pinterest or Google+.
To see the rest of the collection, check it out here.
Also if you find one you like then it’s all yours. No one else will be able to use it. I’ll place the Unavailable sign on it. Again what would be the point if everyone had the same blog title image?
If you don’t see one that you like, I will be adding to the collection on an on-going basis. Feel free to check back or contact me on the form with your request.

Interesting ideas about using images for individual blog posts. In fact, I’ve found one of your samples that I’d like to use. I’ll want it edited slightly. I’ll email you the info.
Hey there Edward!
I’m so glad you like the Wellness Break template. I’ve sent it to you via email as a shared and editable template. You’ll have access to it through Canva. It will be best to have the Canva account (it’s free). This way you can always go to it to create your next blog title image. I will send you a quick little demo of how to use it.
I like the idea of the blog templates. I don’t use them but I know quite a few people who do. So I’ll let them know about these. You do such beautiful work 🙂
I’m glad you like the idea! It’s especially nice if a person uses Pinterest to share their blog posts. The visual marketing aspect is definitely seen more on that type of platform.
Thanks for stopping by! It’s always nice to see you here.
This is quite generous of you and I am definitely interested.
Hi Dr. Elise,
I’m glad you’re interested! Please take a look at the templates to see if any of them would work for your blog. If not, I will be adding more to the collection. Also if you have a color palette in mind, I can work off of that.
Let me know!
Your designs are beautiful, Lillian. Canva is such a versatile app for creating unique and professional looking images.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I’m glad to hear you like my designs. I plan on making much more to provide a better variety for blog niches. I really love Canva!
I have never had a template but have always had a whole host of blog post ideas and have a style of writing that I find easy and can achieve what I set out to do. The biggest challenge for me is finding a post title I like. I used to use images in each post but now I stay away from images if possible.
Enjoy the journey.
Sorry for the delay in responding! My kids just finished Spring break so I feel like I’m getting back into the hang of things. I’m sorry to hear you’re not doing images anymore. Visuals should make a post fun and invite others to read. The blog post titles are hard to come up with sometimes. I understand that challenge!
Thanks for stopping by,
