Spring has sprung on my picture wall!

My new spring pictures finally arrived for my seasonal picture wall! I had a hard time choosing which photos were going to adorn our dining room for this next season but I finally narrowed it down and ordered them from Scrapping Simply. If you have not heard of Scrapping Simply, I highly recommend you check out their website! I stumbled upon them in my search for a store that would print 12X12 size photos.  Not only do they print beautiful pictures with bright, vivid colours, but they do it for a fantastic price and only $5 shipping to Canada! Thanks Scrapping Simply!

Now for the big reveal:

As with the Winter wall, I designed two different pictures. The first was the letter "S" for Spring! This one took me a lot longer because I had to scroll through a gazillion fonts before I found something I liked for the letter "S." I finally decided on the font Earwig Factory, another favourite of mine from Kevin and Amanda. I spent a little extra time tweaking it by adding a wood grain pattern to the back. 

And now for my Spring words! My husband and I sat down back in January and brainstormed a few of the things we loved about Spring. I made a little collage of them and then added a tulip at the side for this season. I love how the leaves on the tulip turned out! This was completley by fluke as I was playing with a few of the blending options in Photoshop and just happened to come up with this. LOVE!

Now all I need is to get my butt in gear and start on my next home DIY upcycled chandelier for the dining room! I love my red pendant lights but they are just not conducive with scrapbooking because they don't give off nearly enough light. Stay tuned and thanks for stopping in! 

Pin It!


  1. It looks great!!! You are so talented Heather! I'm intrigued about the chandelier - can't wait to see what you do.

  2. This looks amazing, Heather! The petals on your tulips look like they're made of tissue paper :)

    I love the new button!If you're ever bored, feel free to tinker with one for me ;)

  3. Thanks ladies! I was hoping to get the chandelier mostly done this weekend but I don't think that's going to happen now. When I have a spare moment Claire, I can make you a button! The new one was originally supposed to go on my pictures but when it was small you couldn't read it. So now it has become a new button!
