Tricky Bug Paper Art Review and Custom Shadow Box Giveaway[CLOSED]



When Angie contacted me to do a review, I took one look at her Tricky Bug Paper Art etsy shop and immediately knew that I wanted to tell you all about her work. She makes such beautiful handmade cards, invitations, shadow boxes, scrapbook layouts, notebooks, and more! You can see all her items by clicking here. So I decided that I had to have a one of her Shadow Boxes with a picture of little bug in it. This is the Shadow Box that she made for me (on the left). I had to take Little Bug’s face out for his privacy. It is so amazing, and even more so when you can see his pic! I just have to say that this picture doesn’t do justice to how amazing it looks in person. Her Shadow Boxes are 12x12 so they are a really nice size. And she works with you to come up with the design. She asked what I was looking for and I said something Boy-ish without being Kid-ish (cause I wanted it to match my home decor). Later that night she emailed me with a bunch of paper samples to choose from and I chose this one. The next day she emailed me a photo of it all put together, but not glued down. She always double checks to make sure you don’t want anything changed. Then I told her it looked awesome and she sent it out to me. This was all done within a week! Talk about fast! And when my package arrived I was so pleasantly surprised to see she wraps each item so cute to look like a gifts, I felt like it was my birthday. And she even sent me extra goodies including a notebook and some adorable greeting cards. She is such a sweetheart. Thanks Angie. My Shadow Box of Little Bug is so gorgeous, words cannot even express how much I love love love it! She really is so talented and great to work with! And all of her work is Gorgeous!


A little about how the name came to be:

“My two year old son is enthralled by those pesky ladybug-like beetles - he calls them "tricky bugs". Kids truly are the most creative people I know!
I am a part time stay at home mom to a two year old boy. He likes to try his hand at paper crafting from time to time. He's an easy "employee" - I only need to pay him in chocolate milk and bunny crackers!”-Angie

I just have to show you this Twilight inspired Isle Esme Treasure Box – from Bella's Heart Collection. “Discover Bella’s Isle Esme honeymoon treasures with this lovingly detailed box. I have spent hours il_430xN_84030370dreaming and crafting to bring you this unique keepsake.” Angie

This would make such a great gift for the Twilight Fan in your life (even if it is most likely yourself) I know I would LOVE it! You just have to read the description of what comes inside this treasure box, click here to see it.
