ID: Tim's Wk 6 - Stencil Technique Tags
size: 5"w x 7"h

Created: July 9, 2016

I'm taking the "Summer of Creative Chemistry" onLine class from Jennifer McGuire taught by Tim. These tags are part of Week 6.

All 3 tags are die cut with Tim's Bookplate/tag die from white cardstock and use the same stencil "Tim's Flourish".

I'm using "A Way With Words" dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs  ("Memories" & "Laugh"), designed by Suzanne Cannon  also available on Quietfire Design HERE & HERE

And I'm using some quote and sentiment stamps from Quietfire Design  

("Better Than A Thousand Days..."); ("You Can Never Have Too Much Fabric"); ("I Shut My Eyes..."); ("Jewelry Words" 6pce set)
