BoBunny Design Team December Blog Hop

Welcome to my stop on the BoBunny December Blog Hop!

Today, we are hopping along, starting & ending at the BoBunny blog.  There, you'll see a question listed next to each designer's name.  As you hop through to each blog, collect the answer to each question, and then head back to the BoBunny blog to enter the answers into a Rafflecopter giveaway, for a chance at a great prize package worth $50! 

The giveaway will be open until December 23 at 12:00 AM MST.

If you didn't start at the beginning, here are the links in order:

Keri Babbitt (you are here!)

This month, we are getting to know a little more about 6 designers.  Each designer will be sharing about themselves and their scrapping style, along with an Elf Magic project, just in time for the holidays!

I'm Keri Babbitt, a mom-of-two daughters, who both love crafting too!  Together, we love to create travel scrapbooks, canvases, and handmade gifts for others.  We also love vintage & thrift shopping together.  My scrapping style is often vintage-based, but with the clean lines of a more modern style.  I love that BoBunny products are versatile enough to satisfy both my love of vintage and my love of modern.

The theme for this month's blog hop is Elf Magic.  It's such a festive, adorable collection for my little ones!  I created a "letters to santa" mailbox for my kids to use throughout the holidays:

The pattern was a bunch of trial-and-error, LOL, but it came together so well when completed with some metal and chipboard embellishments.

After "mailing" their letters, my kids can open the back flap of the mailbox to take the letters out.

This was such a fun project, and believe me, it's gotten a LOT of use throughout the month, as the kids send holiday poems, jokes, and all sorts of correspondence to each other. Cute!

What did my 8-year-old daughter ask for as her #1 gift request from Santa?  A Lalaloopsy Haley Galaxy doll. 

Thanks so much for joining in on all the Elf Magic fun!
You're next stop is ... Lisa Gregory.

Expanding Your Options December - Frog Dog Studio

Happy December to one and all...I hope this month brings you lots of festive fun in one form or another!

I'm up today at Frog Dog Studio with a video tutorial HERE.
And here is a look at the project featured in the video - a fun holiday canvas with some gorgeous vintage ephemera:

I used lots of collage-layering, and tons of glitz, glam, and glitter on this decor piece.


Happy Holidays and Happy Crafting!
