Please join MME in welcoming the amazing Keri Babbitt!
Hi there, I'm Keri Babbitt. I'm a mom of two, who’s been happily crafting since high school.
I love capturing life’s moments and expressing myself artistically through scrapbooking. I'm obsessed with anything vintage and love trying new techniques, as well as finding creative ways to make my supplies stretch.
I love to experiment with any and every scrapping style, from minimalist to shabby chic. I am often a grid-based, multi-photo scrapper, and enjoy finding well-designed ways to include lots of photos.
I enjoy contributing layouts to Creating Keepsakes, and have had the pleasure of designing for several kit clubs, sketch sites, & a few manufacturers. Other than crafting, I enjoy: curling up with a good book, dancing, junking, and being in the outdoors or watching Mythbusters with my family.
I’m a messy scrapper who loves to turn on the music & craft late into the night. Thanks so much for letting me join in on all the fun as guest designer this month…it’s such an honor!

Q: What did you have the most fun working with?
A:I had so much fun using accents to create the mini album…all the fabulous textures & types of embellishments (wood, twine, tape, metal…love them all!) really brought the whole album together for me.
Q: What is your favorite MME line and why?
A:I love so much about each collection I worked with, but I think I’d have to say my heart belongs to the Nostalgia collection this time around. I adore each detail of this collection…from the retro pastels & vintage fonts, to the gorgeous, subtle patterns.
Our Life in Pictures layout:
Supplies:Indie Chic-Ginger: Direction patterned paper, brads, title, decorative tape, paper strips from bottom of each paper sheet; Indie Chic-Saffron: Dreams patterned paper; On The Sunny Side: brads; Nostalgia: brads; Other: ink, computer font.
Keri says:Something I love about MME papers is the bottom strip that has a little patterned section you can cut off and use on a project. I combined several of the thicker ones here, to add a fun vertical element to this otherwise simple-and-straightforward photo-collage layout.
Spark of Life gift set
Keri says:Taking my inspiration from the “You Are Such a Happy Spark of Life” layered sticker from the Nostalgia collection, I put together this “sparkling” gift basket filled with sparklers, snaps, and sparkling lemonade.
Stamp technique: Clear stamps work wonderfully on curved surfaces…simply ink the stamp evenly, using an acrylic block…then remove the stamp and use your palm to wrap & press the stamp onto the curved surface.
Holy smokes, Keri...you blew it out of the water! I am SO glad you could join us this month, I am in love with all of your projects, they are incredible!
Y'all make sure to come back tomorrow, we will have two more creatively stunning projects from Keri!
