REVIEW

Today’s review is written by a Vanilla Joy Review Mom, Keri Garcia.

I’ve always admired the shadow boxes down the frame aisle in the craft store. And I’ve always thought they would look so cute in a child’s bedroom. But my lack of an idea where to start has held me back from buying one. Recently, I was able to try out and review some products from Shadowcase, which spurred my creative juices into action.

A Shadowcase is unique and different from the shadow boxes you can find in the craft store because you can build your own by selecting the individual pieces from their website that best fit either what you’re showcasing or the room it will be displayed in. As I began browsing I wished a white frame and box were an option, but they had ivory among several other colors. I next picked the story board that would serve as the backdrop for my pictures. Last, choose coordinating accessories, and then you’re done. They also have complete kits you can order to minimize an indecisive inner battle.

I mounted my pictures and embellishments on the padded fabric storyboard, and set it into the frame to see the finished picture. I made about a hundred changes to my layout, so the ease of assembly was an added bonus. It only took a second to lay the storyboard in the fitted frame. I don’t have to worry about the storyboard shifting, either, when I move it around and mount it on the wall, because the storyboard rests perfectly against the inside frame. A backboard holds the storyboard in place with metal tabs, making it fit very tight and sercure.  And there are about 1 ½ inches of space between the storyboard and the glass, so even if you have some thicker keepsakes to put in your Shadowcase, they will fit! I loved the three-dimensions I had to work with, instead of two like in scrapbooking.

I also love the quality construction and finish of the Shadowcase. I know it will stand the test of time as we move from house to house over the next 50 years.  There are also several options on the back for hanging as well, which I appreciate.

The Shadowcase website is very helpful and user-friendly, too. If you need some ideas for filling your Shadowcase, there is a gallery of finished projects awaiting your perusal on their website.

If you are intimidated by the shadow boxes down the frame aisle at the craft store, as I was. Fear not! Check out the beautiful shadowcases at Shadowcase.com and get started with your project!
