    Do yourself a favor and run, not walk, to buy Kara’s Confident Funnels. I purchased them and made my money back on the course THE VERY FIRST DAY I created and launched my tripwire funnel! I had even made funnels before but they weren’t converting as high as I would have liked so I knew I needed to make a change. I bought these super easy to use funnel templates and BAM! I made several hundred dollars my first week with Confident Funnels! -Rebecca from Proud Police Wife

She understands the creative elements that make money and she’s one of the only people I know that not only understanding landing page conversion optimization but also the unique perspective of a blogging business and design. -Rosemarie from The Busy Budgeter

    I just finished creating my very first product using the Product Creators Ultimate Toolbox!! I honestly never believed I could create anything, and could not have done it without Kara’s templates. They make designing SO easy and fast. And there are templates for everything you could possibly need - from creating just about any type of product, to Pinterest pins and Facebook ads, and TONS more. I still can’t believe Kara made so many templates for us!

    Besides all the templates, what surprised me the most was the step-by-step STRATEGY in the Toolbox. The course walks you through exactly how to figure out what your audience wants, the process of creating a product, launching it, creating sales funnels, and more. I was honestly blown away by the sheer amount of value Kara provided. I can’t think of anything else you’d need!

    Kara, I love your templates soooo much!! Using the templates and learning from your videos have truly made me feel like the graphic artist that I only wished I could've been years ago!! The templates save so much time, and by just following your steps, I've been able to create pin graphics, opt-ins, and complete workbooks all in just a little bit of time. I actually look forward to this part in the creation process! I'm so glad I purchased them and will continue to use them in my blogging journey! -Layne from Crafty Life Mom

    I've been using Canva for a few years now but always felt like their templates lacked appeal. I was so excited when Kara launched Simplifying DIY Design and I saw what she was offering. Not only templates for pins and Facebook graphics, but full ebooks too? How could I pass that up! I've been so pleased with what I've been able to create. My Pinterest pins have never looked so good! The latest thing that I have created is the Entrepreneur's Mindset Journal and I used Kara's template for both the cover and inside pages. It made it so simple to just insert my copy, adjust the colors to fit my brand and hit publish! Thanks for a great product Kara! -Emma from Emma Lee Bates

    Kara's Complete Bloggers Template Toolkit is hands down the best purchase I have made for my blog so far. It's beautiful, and a huge time-saver. Not only do I feel more confident while creating graphics, but I am also having fun! Kara is not only very talented, but also super helpful. Highly recommended! -Jess from The Exceptionally Ordinary Life

    Kara's toolkit solved a HUGE problem for me. I was wasting SO many hours trying to make my blog look half-way decent, and I couldn't afford a professional re-design. Now I don't even need one because I LOVE my blog's appearance! The Complete Blogger Template Toolkit is truly complete. I now have everything I need to make my blog and products look professional and true to my brand. It's not an exaggeration to say this has been one of the BEST and most important investments I've made in my blog and business. Now I can spend less time on design and churn out way more content! Thank you, Kara! I mean every word from the bottom of my heart! Thanks for sharing your talent! -Laura from The Determined Dollar

    I love being a blogger, but I came into blogging with no graphic design skills. Simplifying DIY Design has become one of my favorite websites because I'm improving my graphic design skills with Kara's help! She is genuinely an awesome person and I'm so thankful that she started Simplifying DIY Design to help bloggers like me. Her blog posts, video tutorials, and resource library have helped me so much! I'm getting compliments on my images and traffic to my website is increasing! -Stephanie from Aroma Mama

    Kara's graphic design skills were a game changer for our blog. Her eye for colors, appreciation for details and an understanding of the blogging and marketing world made for eye catching graphics, increased exposure, professional messaging and increased revenue. Plus, she's a pretty cool chick. -Rosemarie from The Busy Budgeter

    Kara's a design genius! I love the way she makes complicated designs so simple. Her templates are beautiful, and she's brilliant at teaching you step-by-step exactly how to use them. She can even make things that take hours (like creating the perfect line in Canva) super easy with a five-second hack. I only wish I had found her sooner! -Alison from Organized Motherhood

    If you haven't already, RUN over to Kara's page [Simplifying DIY Design] and get yourself some new PIN templates. I'm in love and just want to take 2 days off of work to create pins all day. -Brittany from Our Home Made Easy

    When it comes to making graphics the hardest part for me is starting with a blank page. Kara’s templates are a life saver. They give you a starting point to jump off from. And then once I get started the ideas start flowing and I create beautiful products I could have only dreamed about. Thanks Kara! -Amanda from Airman To Mom

    I took Kara's free 3 day design course and she helped me understand and realize I needed to make a brand for my blog. Her tutorials were very detailed and I learned how to actually use Canva, which I'd had an account with for years, but didn't understand how to use it. I was able to actually make some great graphics in those 3 days and it was so quick and simple because she already had the templates made and I just had to add my own pictures, text, and color. -Vanessa from Mom of 5 Trying to Survive

    Kara, to say that you have helped me is a complete understatement. In the last three years of trying to be a money making blogger I have been running in circles. I’ve gone through course after course after course, learning everything I possibly can, but nowhere in all the “Email is where the money is!” did anyone tell/show me how to actually create the product and move forward in a course that’s easy to understand and implement. I have made leaps and bounds since purchasing the Ultimate Creators Toolbox and feel like the sky is the limit now with what I can do. The goals that I set out for myself years ago actually feel like ones I can achieve. Thank you, really. Thank you. -Danielle from Mommy With a Hobby or Two

    Thank you Kara for the Product Creators Ultimate Toolbox. We launched our first mainstream product and your toolkit made it possible. Your templates not only gave us a starting point, it made the entire process from beginning to end so much easier. What we love most is the flexibility to make it our own. As a result of using your templates for our sales page, product itself, graphics and email sequence, our first product launch resulted in a 20% conversion rate. We cannot thank you enough. -Andre and Timberley Gray from Living Our Priorities
