#Hashtag Beach Day with Melissa Mann

Our design team has been loving our Large Jane Alphabet Stamp, in all of the different forms that it comes in, and with the new Large Jane Alphabet Metal Die, creating a fabulous project with the large numbers and letters is easy to do, just like Melissa Mann is sharing with us today! Let’s see what she created.

Happy spring, everyone! It’s Melissa here with you on the blog today and I’m super excited about the project I’m sharing with you. As you may or may not know, Elle’s Studio offers a FABULOUS alphabet stamp set called Large Jane, which comes in solid, outline, stripes and dots, and also has a corresponding die cutting set! My goal for this layout was to emphasize the alphabet stamp and make it shine on this project.

Supplies | March 2019 Kit, Spring Puffy Stickers, The Details Stamp, Large Jane Alphabet Stamp – Solid, Large Jane Number Stamp – Solid and Outline, Large Jane Alphabet Metal Die, Large Jane Number Metal Die, Noteworthy Word Labels, Noteworthy 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection

I wanted to create a series of hashtags, like those that are so popular on social media platforms these days AND I really wanted to capture this gorgeous photo of Pensacola Beach that I had taken last year. I printed the photo BIG to go along with the over-sized Large Jane Alphabet Stamp. I placed my photo on the right side of my layout and stitched it down. Then came the fun part! I stamped out my hashtags in corresponding blue and green inks on white card stock and cut them out using the Large Jane Alphabet Metal Die.

Once I had die cut all of the letters out, I placed the words down the left hand side of the layout, overlapping the picture, and stitched them all down. I placed my hashtags from shortest to longest. Because there was so much already going on with the super long title, I kept the rest of my embellishments and journaling fairly simple.

I typed my journaling onto a piece of vellum and stitched it to the upper right hand corner of the photo. I layered the “spring is here!” tag from the March 2019 Kit, the “love this snapshot” tag from the Noteworthy Word Labels and a Spring Puffy Sticker around the journaling and then lastly, stamped some phrases using The Details Stamp!

I hope you are enjoying your Large Jane Alphabet Stamps and Metal Die! Make sure to share your projects with us on our Elle’s Studio Facebook Group!
