Out With the Old : In with the…Scrapboxes

Confession : I’m not a huge fan of shadow boxes and I do not scrapbook (I’m sure this will one day be a regret, but it’s the truth).

Did you see the Feb issue of Living Mag? I was smitten.

These scrapboxes are from The Darcy Miller (Author, illustrator & a Martha Stewart Living Editor) Show. Does this not make your heart skip a beat? Don’t you want a wall like this? And all those special little things you hate to throw away or even pack away, how about this?

These are some close ups of my favorite ones . . .


Have you heard of photo confetti? Me Neither. Brilliant.

Love this . . .

Same picture. different sizes. layered one on the other. Genius.
You can see a close up of the rest of the boxes along with the “how to” and “where to buy.” You know Martha wouldn’t forget a thing!

    How great is this! I love the idea of using little mementos to the boxes. I just did a black and white picture wall that I posted but this is so different. Might have to do some of these next, thanks.

    Hey how was the book My French Life? Looks interesting!

    I have been looking for some inspiration for shadow boxes. I was given a bunch for free and they are still sitting in my craft room collecting dust. Thanks for sharing ;)

    This is so cool! I love it. I have to admit that I hate scrapbooking, too. My mom sells Creative Memories and has big workshops. I rarely go until I'm just so far behind that I make myself do it.
    But a wall like this is just too crazy amazing. So worth the effort.

    Love the layered one. I picked up a new shadow box at a yard sale last year and it's just sitting here. Thanks for the great ideas!
