Guest Designer - Vero The Sahm - Altered item

Hello everybody !!

Vero here once again…

This is my last day as a guest at Die-Namites ! And today we'll talk about food ... just kidding...mmm actually I suggest you to go through your trash to recover ... this ...

I often have mess on my desk of scrapbooking, and to buy arrangements can be expensive. And as I like using the recycling in scrapbooking, I had the idea to transform this tin can into arrangement for all my markers.

It was the moment to use one of my favorite die cut. I love butterflies, and this die is the most original one I could know. It’s so amazing, isn’t it ?

First thing I have done is to cover the can with a large piece of paper. On the top and on the down of this can, I added a masking tape. I put another piece of paper I decorated thanks a heart mask (I used gesso), then I sprayed pink ink on it, and when it was dried I finished with a stamp.

I die cut twice this awesome cascade : in a paper and in an overlay (transparencie). I added glossy accent on the paper, and some half-pearls.

And here is a box I decorated for my liking, with the markers at hand.

I sincerely enjoyed to be here with you, hoping I gave you inspiration to create with those fabulous dies from Die-Namites !

Enjoy !!




  1. Vero, this is great! thanks for inspiring us all week. I love how you used this die as garland around the can. what a great way to store your colorful pens.
