Messy Box is a monthly subscription box from lifestyle blog A Beautiful Mess. It’s really a scrapbook box and would be great to make some pocket pages with and keep up with monthly scrapping or if you are working on a yearly book.  I have plans for a yearly book in 2016 and I think these will make it so much fun and easier to keep up with.

Everything is contained in a bag inside the box.  I love this and how it keeps everything from moving all around and getting smooshed corners.

Everything in the box!

Scrapbooking papers 9″x12″.

The journal cards came in three sizes this month. I love the Cozy warm winter thoughts even though its still really warm here. I can dream of colder days.

The embellishments – little letters, washi strips, leaf wood cutouts, and puffy lips.  I like the letters, washi and leafs however I’m a little confused on the lips and while they are cute they don’t really go with a warm winter theme and are more Valentine’s Day to me so I may keep those for then.

Overall I like the set and mix of papers. I normally work on 12×12″ pages so I will get a couple good ones out of the supplies when I crop them up and add some pictures.  I love all the plaid and could go for even more of them.  The colors aren’t ones I would put together but when I look at them they do all go together. That is part of the fun of these boxes in that I have to venture outside my comfort zone and it forces some variety in my books.

FYI, they sell a “Messy Book” and pocket scrapbooking supplies, but you don’t have to purchase their items, especially if you already use a different size scrapbook. I found these We R Memory Keepers pages and October Afternoon pages on Amazon (these are the 3×3 ones)!  We also found this site – Kanvess – that does Instagram prints for a quarter (3″ and 4″ squares) ! A Beautiful Mess recommends/is sponsored by Canon Pixma but you have to cut them up. You can also try the new Polaroid Zip (3″x4″). Scrapbook.com also has a wide variety of page protectors!
