Canvas Art for Kate's Room…

Share To:


Happy Monday, friends! I’m so excited to share my latest Shutterfly projects with you today. You may recognize the LOVE canvas from last month’s post. I loved it so much I decided to use it in Kate’s room and create more custom canvas designs to make a collage wall. I have been slowly (very slowly) working on updating her room to black and white with pops of hot pink and aqua. I had her room painted white (it was pale pink) when I painted my office a few weeks ago. I recently ordered her a new duvet cover and shams during a PB Teen bedding sale (and now they’re on sale even more!). Super cute! I had many more plans for her room, but now that we have decided to list our home (did you miss the news?) I’ll probably wait until the next house to finish it completely, but the canvas wall turned out SO darling!  


My little girl is growing up way too fast and I can’t believe she is turning seven this month! Do you remember her 2nd birthday party when I first started blogging? Crazy how time flies! Well, for her new room, you can see we are going a little more “big” girl with modern style and colors. I designed four new canvas designs for her wall!



I love all of the typography art prints and quotes I see all over Pinterest, so I decided to create a couple myself that really remind me of our sweet girl. “She leaves a sparkle wherever she goes” is a Kate Spade quote (I think) and is so perfect for our happy little girl.


We are always telling our kids that they can do anything as long as they believe they can. So this canvas, “Believe you can and you will” is the perfect reminder for her to dream big and always believe in herself.


Of course, I couldn’t go without do a simple TomKat heart in hot pink to add a pop of color!


I hope you like my designs and it is easy to download them and order your own canvas prints from Shutterfly!


1. Download and save the canvas graphic.

2. Visit Shutterfly and select canvas prints. Then select “Photo Gallery” canvas print and choose 16″ x 20″ for the quotes or 16″ x 16″ for the heart, no frame.

3. Click “Personalize”. For the 16″ x 20″, change format to vertical (with photo all the way to the edges). Upload the saved graphic from your computer and place into canvas design. Do not add text.

4. Click next and then order.

    hey kim what font did you use to make these signs? I love the “she leaves a little sparkle wherever she goes” but I would love for the sign to be in all the same font as “sparkle”.
