Shadow Box Give-Away!

Hello!!! Happy Monday! I am so excited to share this with you today----> What is it? It is a customizable shadow box by My Shadow Box Creation. These shadowboxes are BEAUTIFULLY made, 100% wood , and come in black, white, pink or blue. You can have the front glass panel engraved with whatever you want. There are so many fonts and styles to choose from. Best of all, the front door is magnetized so your pictures or projects stay safe inside.

Jon from My Shadow Box Creation contacted me several weeks ago and asked if I would like to play with one and I gladly agreed with the understanding that I would only blog about it IF I thought it was a good product. IT IS!! For this shadowbox, I had my name engraved on the front with beautiful swirls around it. (I hope you can see it in this photo- it is really difficult to photograph glass!):
I thought this would be a beautiful accent piece for my office. I can use it to display cards I have created, projects or a recent scrapbook page. When I get tired of the display----I can simply change it. I used some removable Velcro to adhere to cards to the beautiful canvas backing that the box has.
I also can use the box at local craft fairs or other places I want to display my work and I can ensure that the projects inside won't be damaged.
The inside depth is 2", much deeper than standard boxes, which allow altered projects to sit inside easily. (I have a little altered project sitting inside this one so you can see!)

The other thing I LOVE about these is that I have always created a "frame" from our family vacations. These frames are all around our game room so we can always be reminded of trips we have taken. They feature a collage of pictures and sometimes other memorabilia (like coins from Honduras, etc.) These boxes would have been perfect to use (AND you can have the trip and year engraved right on the front!)
So.....Want to try one for free?? Jon has graciously allowed me to offer one to a lucky blog reader today. So....if you would like to see how beautiful these are for yourself....and have a great customized display for your office/home, just leave a comment and let me know what you would use your Shadow Box for. (Subscribers can enter twice!) Random.Cara will pick a winner. You have until Thursday, March 17 at 8 p.m. central time to enter. The winner must contact me within three days or another winner will be selected.
AND..... here is a special code for my blog readers. Just enter SCRAP10 at checkout to receive 10% off your order!!

Lora said...

This is just what I have been looking for! I want to make some kind of display with all my kids baby "bits" (their little tags and things from hospital etc) and things like my 2 daughters first gold bracelets which no longer fit them and this would be just perfect to display them and keep them safe :)
Thanks so much for the chance to win.
Oh and I am a subscriber :)

Thank you to you and My Shadow Box Creation for the chance. I always leave my latest creation propped up to enjoy it for a few days. I hope it doesn't get bent or damaged. I would love to hang it right here behind me in my craft space...there's a perfect spot.

This is so cute! I would use it to make something for my wedding.

Patti J said...

I think your box is wonderful, Cammie! So glad you had the opportunity to inspire us this way! I can see your name - so pretty!!! Thanks for the chance to win. I know exactly what I would do with mine. We lost everything to a house fire in 1980, and dear hubby was burned over 80% of his body. We thought that all of our wedding photos had burned in the fire. A short while back, when MIL passed away, we found a 'mother's album'! I would make my wonderful husband a treasure for his office wall! Hugs!!!

Debbie said...

What a wonderful way to display special photos and mementos for a trip. That's what I would do with it. I would have to purchase more for other special things like our wedding, one for each of our dogs, family photos of those who are still here and a special tribute to my grandmother who has passed on. I can think of quite a few things to do with these shadow boxes. Love the depth on them too! Thanks for the chance to win!!

Kitty said...

Thank you for a chance to win this wonderful shadow box, Cammie and Jon! I like the idea of a hanging vacation collage. I have a Senior so thought it would be fun to have a way to showcase his last year of high school. It would also be an awesome way to display photos, medals, certificates, etc. for one particular sport from high school or college.

Kitty said...

I am also a subscriber!

Lynda said...

Wonderful idea, Cammie. I have two beautiful grandchildren and a DIL who takes lots of wonderful photographs. I would fill the shadowbox with pictures and eliminate some of the MANY picture frames I have all over the house! Thank you for sharing. I too am a subscriber and love your work.

WOW Cammie, Your Display looks lovely in this Beautiful Shadow Box and is so Versatile as you said when you get tired of looking at one thing you can change it to another. I think it's very Generous of you and Jon to be giving one away, but of course I would have to buy more. My Brain is just spinning with so many ideas for these. I think if I won I would use the Win One as a Memorial to my Beautiful Mother who passed away so very young at 53.(That Dreaded C Word took her away). I have many little Trinkets and special Mementos and would LOVE to showcase them in this box, with her Name. This way she can be remembered right down the generations. Wouldn't that be Awesome.
Fingers and Toes Crossed.
Kind Regards and many Thanks,
Bev. Leeson.........

Well now, Since I am a very Happy Subscriber I get a second chance to win this most Beautiful Shadow Box. As I have previously mentioned ONE would never be enough and I would have to buy more. But to win one would be really special. I have recently been on a Overseas Trip to Europe and China, so you can well Imagine I'm sure all the little Treasures I have from that Trip. It would be a Fabulous way to Display them all and every time I go into my Craft room I can be reminded of that Very Special Time. Thanks once again Carrie and Jon for your wonderful Generosity.
Kind Regards,
Bev. Leeson......

Sheri said...

I would put pictures of my grandbabies in it along with one special thing for each of them be it a small toy, a pacifier, etc. Very cool and great workmanship

Michelle*G said...

I love that you can get these engraved! And that they're deeper than others! They are lovely. Thanks for sharing the link to the company! And for the chance to win one! I want to make one for my wedding - I've got lots of little bits and pieces from our week in Camden and I'd love to do something like this to showcase them!

Michelle*G said...

And I'm a subscriber too!

Kathy Martin said...

Oh how cool it would be to win one of these!

sarahw said...

I really like this idea! I just redecorated a bit in the house and one of these would look perfect on my mantle. Thanks for the chance.

Michelle said...

How lovely. I like that the frame is simple, but not plain. I would use it in my daughter's room for a photo from her first dance recital. The size is deep enough that I could tuck her first ballet slippers inside.

Michelle said...

Of course I am an email subscriber. I wouldn't want to miss a single creation.

Donna said...

What a fun way to display your work. I love the idea of being able to change it out and that's probably what I would do: display some of my favorites in it. Your did a wonderful job! TFS!

Donna said...

You bet I'm a subscriber. I don;t want to miss any of your wonderful creations! Have a great week, Cammie!

Tina Gilliland said...

Oh my... that is really clever!!! I LOVE your name on the front. Did they do that for you??? Like you, I'd also use it to display some of my fav cards and switch them out. What a fun piece that would be for my studio!!

Tina Gilliland said...

Yayyyy I won the last .... why not try again!! LOL I AM a subsciber and don't want to miss a chance at THIS one for sure!!!

lisa808 said...

Looks like an awesome shadowbox. I would make a gift for my mother. Thanks for the chance.

So inspiring! I love making collages and vignettes and this beautiful shadow box would be perfect for display.

irishgalkelly said...

Thank you Jon and Cammie for a chance to win! I love your idea about showcasing vacations and think that is what I would start doing with mine. Each year we take only one, have it engraved on the beautiful box, and highlight our favorite memories! I can also see these showcasing my kids and give as presents to their grandparents too. There are lots of possibilities for these!!

Rita said...

OMGosh, this is an AWESOME idea & yours is so beautiful! I would love to make one for my son & DIL with trinkets from their wedding. I have an engraved golf ball that I want to cut in half from the wedding golf tournament the day after the wedding, I would also put in their invitation, pictures from both the tournament & wedding. This is perfect for this. I have been looking (not that hard, out of sight, out of mind) for something like this & you just gave me the perfect idea for my plan.
Thank you sooooo much Carolyn for inspiring me today.

Rita said...

Darlene L said...

What a wonderful project and I love your idea about the family vacation collages. I would use this shadowbox for my little grandson, either to display his artwork from preschool or some of the fabulous photos we have of him. Thanks for the chance to win.

Darlene L said...

This is my second entry as I am a very happy subsciber. Thanks for offering two chances and to Jon for sponsoring your giveaway.

Tina said...

My hubby loves music, and collects music like I do rubber stamps ... so you know he has a lot! I have had an idea for a while to get a shadowbox for his music room. In it I would create a scrapbook of sorts. But, what I love about this one is the engraved front. How cool is that? Thanks for a chance to win!

stampyng said...

I love the idea of this product! I have so many friends and family having babies - I would make a scrappage of the new little one. I actually made one for a friend and want to make more, but am having a hard time finding this type of product at my local craft stores.

stampyng said...

2nd post for being a subscriber. Thanks for the chance - this looks like a great product!

Bonita said...

I love minatures of any kind so would love to use to display some. Also like the trip idea as I have 3D items plus photos from Israel. Also quilt blocks which my Mom has made with old thimbles and sewing items I've kept. So many ideas. Thanks for chance to win.

Susan G said...

These would be great to make for my new grandaughter's room. You did an excellent job with yours for your display of work. Thanks to you and Jon for offering one as a prize.

Gabriela said...

Love, Love, LOVE that shadow box!

Carolina said...

What a lovely project Cammie!!! LOVE the shadow box - as always you created a masterpiece! Would love to use one for a Mother's Day gift for my sis!

Karen McAlpine said...

What an attactive shadow box. Are they made in the USA? It would be great if they are! I love how you decorated yours. I would use mine to showcase a seasonal theme. Like a summer theme, fall, and holidays, etc...I could change it out with each new season or holiday. I do this with my throw pillows and wall art too.

Crafty Cupcake said...

This is the perfect way to display any of my papercraft creations and be able to swap the items out whenever. I am a cardmaker, and it would also be perfect to display inspiration pieces in my crafting space.

scrapalajen said...

This would be awesome to display my two kids' pictures and memorabilia from birth.

Gabriela said...

Your darling cards are the perfect addition to this wonderful shadow box!

Nancy said...

Oh Cammie, what a great prize! I'm sure that you know I would put Jessica's precious things into it. She made some necklaces, bracelets, drew pictures and even drew a few things and cut them out... I would arrange these things and put it in her room. Everything she touched is so precious now that she is gone... but she is still here in spirit! I can feel all her love... especially when I look at and touch her things.

Christine from FL said...

Thank you for the chance to win, I use it to put some cards my granddaughter made in.

Savannah O'Gwynn said...

WOW! your shadow box is so pretty! I have not made a box for myself--so I think I would put mementos of my life with my husband. I am so thankful for him--and I would love to have a shadow box with little reminders of things he has done for me or given me.

Thanks for the chance to win:)

I LOVE this shadowbox. I have a room in my house, called the Middle Room, because it is in the middle of the house and you have to go through it to get to certain rooms (ggg!)....This piece would look fantastic in that room - Thanks for the opportunity to win!

Cathy said...

Wow, that is way to cool, and love what you did with it. I make floral punch art cards and that would showcase the cards so nice. Thanks for a chance to win one of them.

Starla said...

I know EXACTLY what I would put into this frame! I have these round tin plate pictures of my grandfather and his brothers. They are the only picture that were found of my grandfather when he was younger (of course, we have photos of him later on!). I would place my grandmothers crochet doily in the back, the three tin types, my granfather's bolo tie and maybe my grandparents wedding picture.

Darla said...

Karinn said...

I've always wanted to try a shadow box, but haven't seen one that open like this, how cool is that? I have three kiddos and would love to get one for each of their birth items and having it engraved would be beautiful! I'm totally mapping out in my mind how they would look {big sweet sigh}.

I'd also like to do one for my cousins. My uncle recently passed away unexpectedly, and memory shadow box with his glasses, pictures and favorite small items would make a loving gift to them on Father's Day this year. What do you think?

Karinn said...

Oh and I'm a subscriber! Here's my second post. You take a peek at my ideas just above this post :)

joanne said...

I admire all of your many projects and this one is another amazing project you did. I would use this as a gift box for someone special.

joanne said...

Thanks for the opportunity for your followers to enter twice. I am a regular follower and love your blog and your shared creations. I would use these boxes for gifts and have to do some for myself also. My mother's 99th birthday is coming up, so I would do one including the activities of this special day for her.

Susan said...

I would use the shadow box for some old cards I have of famous Christmas fashion magazine covers. I think I would also like to rotate the display so that it could be seasonal.

This is my second comment as I am a longtime subscriber....wouldn't mind doing one with a garden theme either...old seed packs, garden pic's...wow...I could go on and on...thanks!

irishgalkelly said...

Cammie,
Thanks for the reminder today, I almost forgot to post my second entry for being a subscriber! Another use I thought of for these awesome boxes would be to showcase each of my kids at home. And change it with the season...baseball pics in Spring, soccer pics in Fall, Easter pics, Christmas, etc. These are really beautiful!
