Epiphany Crafts and Xyron

Two of my favorite companies have teamed up for a week long blog hop and both design teams have some fabulous projects to share with you this week. Be sure to stop by the Epiphany Crafts and Xyron blogs each day to see what the design team member have created.
Summer is here and the kids are out of school. My girls love to take photos and save all those fun bits of memorabilia just like their mom. I thought it would be fun to create a place for each of them to store those photos and memorabilia and have a place to journal about all their Summer adventures. Starting with my youngest daughter I created this Summer Memories Armoire and I love how it turned out. I can't wait to make two more for my older girls.

To make the armoire start by cutting the pieces from the 3D Armoire studio file with the Silhouette Cameo. Apply adhesive with the Xyron Mega Runner to the tabs of the base pieces and assemble to form the armoire and drawer.

Use the 5" Creative Station to apply adhesive to the larger patterned paper panels and adhere them to the armoire.

I decided to add drawer pulls to the front of the drawer to make it easier to pull out of the armoire. To make the drawer pulls select your patterned paper and punch two circles with bubble caps using the Epiphany Crafts Round 14 Tool.

Adhere the punched circles to the Epiphany Crafts Brad Settings and add to the front of the armoire drawer.

Here is a look of what I added to the inside of the armoire.

I die cut two frames using my Silhouette Cameo that can be used to hold favorite photos.

I also hand cut an additional drawer to fit under the shelf. This can be used to hold additional photos, memorabilia, etc. I added a drawer pull using an Epiphany Crafts Round 14 Metal Setting.

In the bottom drawer of the armoire I added a couple of notebooks for journaling that I put together with my Bind-it-All.

I adhered a small journaling card with the Xyron Mega Runner to the first notebook. I decorated the second notebook with a couple of the Epiphany Crafts charms.
