A Beautiful Mess Messy Box Subscription Review – March 2015
Messy Box is a new scrapbooking subscription from A Beautiful Mess. I love my Happy Mail subscription, so I wanted to try this one out too. I have never scrapbooked, but I love their designs so much I figured I could use the items for something else if I didn’t take it up! (They also sell exclusive scrapbook books and pages to go along with the sizes of items in this kit).
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Messy Box
The Cost: $24.99 ($19.99 a box with an annual subscription)
The Products: Each box is filled with items to scrapbook with including paper and cards, stickers, embellishments, and special items. Each month is color-coordinated and comes with a different technique theme.
Ships to: US and International ($3 shipping fee per box for International subscribers).
First, there was a thank you note on the back of one of the cards from Elsie and Emma.
Days of the Week Washi Tape
This is my favorite item in the box! (And I love that Friday is listed as T.G.I.F.!
Oversized Confetti and White Brads
Elsie did a blog post using these items to decorate a scrap book, and I recommend checking it out if you are looking for ideas!
3″ X 3″ Squares
These squares are colored on one side and black and white on the other. I like that they are embracing Instagram sizing for their scrapbook!
3″ X 4″ Cards
These cards and the ones below are double sided as well.
4″ X 6″ Cards
9″ X 12″ Pages
9″ X 12″ Life is Beautiful Transparency Sheet
These cardstock pages are one-sided and I love all the different patterns. I may try using them as background for framed photos.
And this transparency sheet can go over any large photo or any of these background photos. (FYI – it has a backing you have to remove).
Gold Chipboard Alpha Stickers
These stickers have a cardboard thickness, and I love gold-foil anything, so I’m excited to use them!
Verdict: I paid $22 for this box (6-month subscription), and I’m happy with the items! I think a large part of the value in this box is getting exclusive ABM designed items you can’t get anywhere else. I’m not familiar with scrapbooking material costs though, so let me know if you think this is a good value box!
