A Beautiful Mess Messy Box Subscription Review – Nov 2015
Messy Box is a 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).

These boxes always include 4 9×12 one-sided pages.
I think my favorite is the red and black plaid print!
Veneer Fern Leaves
Lip Puffy Stickers
While I think these puffy stickers are fun, they don’t seem to fit the cozy theme that well…
Silver Tiny Square Alpha Stickers
Skinny Washi Strips
I wish there was even more plaid in this box, but these washi strips will have to do!
Set of journal cards (3 3×4″ 3 4×6″ and 6 3×3″)
Usually, these cards are reversible. This month, most of them have a graph-paper print on the back. Here are the larger sizes:
And the back of these cards:
Last month they sent half the amount of cards they usually send, and that lesser amount is the same for this box. It seems like a little bit of a hit in terms of value.
Verdict: I like the colors and prints this month (LOVE the cozy theme), but it does seem like this box has cut back a bit in value recently. I really hope to see more reversible 9×12 sheets in future boxes – I love having lots of options for framing!
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.
