Home is where the Heart is

 Happy Wednesday! It is time for a new Funkie Junkie Boutique Challenge!  The talented Jenny is hosting and she is challenging us with "Home is Where the Heart Is". Here is how she describes the challenge: 

"What does 'home' mean to you? Maybe it's a place of safety, somewhere you live with family or friends, or a place that holds treasured memories. It may be somewhere you can be yourself or a place from where you can grow and thrive. Whatever 'home' means to you create a project of your choice that represents it."

For me the home is all about the family.  This inspired me to create a mini village with a house for each person who will join us at our holiday table. I made the village so I can slip a name card into the top of each house.

Sizzix Tim Holtz Chapter 4 Paper Village For The Funkie Junkie Boutique

I loved having the variety of doors and windows to create different effects with each house.   I also started with some beautiful shabby chic paper to give it a soft Victorian effect.

I am not going to share the details as I will be sharing on Saturday at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Challenge Blog.  

I love how sweet the little houses looked when completed and can see creating a Christmas Village with these little houses.  

Please come join us in the fun!  The winner will earn a chance to be a Guest Designer at a future date  at The Funkie Junkie Boutique challenge blog, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the draw for the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. There are also Top 3 Badges for three additional outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team.

Thanks for stopping by! 




  1. I so love the papers you chose to use for these, gorgeous!

  2. I love these little houses, and so wanted to get that die set! These will be so fabulous as part of your holiday table decorations. I'm off to see your showcase post in a few. Thank you for your inspiration! Happy Halloween!

  3. The idea of creating place settings with these adorable house is so perfect Suzz. And of course there is nothing quite like sitting round the Christmas table to make it feel like home x
