Tag Tuesday Challenge: Proverbs

home is where your heart is

Here’s my tag for Tag Tuesday using Proverbs as the challenge prompt.  FUN Challenge!  You can post tags to this challenge at the Tag Tuesday Blog from Tuesday, November 5, up to and including Monday November 11.  The next theme will be posted on Tuesday November 12. 

Home is Where the Heart is Tag Supplies List

Valentine House digital stamp from The Stamping Boutique.  This image was colored and paper-pieced digitally using Nancie Rowe Janitz’s Bountiful Paperset in Photoshop Elements, traced in Silhouette Studio, and then printed-and-cut using my Silhouette Portrait.  I isolated the house, tree, and one of the clouds, cut it with my Silhouette Portrait, and applied it to the base using 3D Zots.

This digital stamp is only $3.25 and because it’s digital, you don’t pay for shipping and you get it FAST!  Clicking on the image below will take you directly to the product page at The Stamping Boutique.  This little house can be used for themes other than Valentine’s Day.

Bountiful Paperset prints were used for the background of the tag, filled the sentiment, and filled the digital stamp image.  Fall Word Strips were used toward the top of the tag “sweet memories treasured”.  Both of these digital kits are by Nancie Rowe Janitz and are available NOW at

Tag topper, scalloped border, and Home is Where Your Heart is sentiment by Silhouette America.  The sentiment was outlined using a black Silhouette sketch pen and then filled in with a white gel pen. 

Glossy Accents by Ranger was applied to the heart in the sentiment.

Heavy duty jute from hardware store.

Below is a peek at Nancie Rowe Janitz’s Bountiful and Fall Word Strips kits I used in the tag above.  I printed the background for my tag from the Bountiful kit and added the above distress inks to edge it once the tag was cut.  The tag topper was also a print from the Bountiful kit.
