A Beautiful Mess Messy Box Subscription Review – July 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)

Check out all of my Messy Box reviews!
3 9×12 papers
1 9/12 Gold Striped transparent sheet
These paper sheets are a cardstock, and one-sided. The gold stripe can be layered over any the papers or a photo, etc. (I’ve ended up using a few of these as background paper for framing photos).
Silver star die cuts
Gold chipboard alpha
These take me back to elementary school and the display boards teachers would make!
Jumbo Gold Paper Clips
Pink die cut “sparkle” chipboard word
This sparkle chipboard addition is fun – and of course they make everything look good in their scrapbook posts!
Set of journal cards (6 3×4″ 6 4×6″ and 12 3×3″)
These cards are all reversible – so you have a lot of options to pick from. Here are the larger sizes:
(I’m loving the gold foil stripes this month!)
Verdict: Based on the comments from some scrapbooking readers on previous Messy Box reviews, I’d say this box is worth the $25 a month cost if you’re excited about exclusive prints and designs from A Beautiful Mess. If you’re looking purely for scrapbooking materials, there are likely cheaper options.
Personally I love their prints and creative designs, so I enjoy this subscription box! (Though I think Happy Mail is definitely the better value if you are picking between the two subscriptions).
