I saw this when I was at Michaels recently and thought y’all might be interested in it. It’s a lapdesk specifically for scrapbookers made by Mike’s store brand, Recollections.


I think it’s a clever idea. So many scrappers don’t have a designated scrapbook space, others like to sit in bed to scrap or join their family in front of the TV. OOH! Or you could use it on long car rides!


The pink print is, well, kinda’ bright – but pink is one of my favorite colors so I’m down with that. And the price {retail $49.99} is a bit steep but they routinely put storage items on 40% or 50% off (if not, use a coupon!).

One the one hand, I don’t think I’d use that clip at the top on layouts as they probably intend for fear of damaging my paper. On the other hand, it could be handy to hold your pen, scissors, a journaling tag, etc.

What do you think? Do you like this new scrapbooking product at Michaels?

    I like it. I have used the same lap desk since I first went to college (in 1989!!!) but I don’t usually craft/scrap on it. My kids (ages 8 & 10) both have one now too…the only way to get them to stop using mine. Nice surface to write/eat on plus storage makes it ideal for kids in the car on longer trips. It would also be great for a college student. Just not sure how many folks craft on their laps. I definitely need more space to spread out! Although if someone wanted to buy one for me for Christmas, I wouldn’t turn it down. ;)

    OMG, I just got this, and I’m so excited to use it, not only for crafting but for my laptop. I saw the price, then it was marked down to $19.99 plus I had a 20% percent off everything….yay.

    It looks pretty but I don’t know how practical it would be for me, I like to spread out and have lots of options available to me :)

    My first thought was that I would like it, but then I realized as a woman of size, I’m not sure that this would work for me. I’ve tried to use the laptop support we have, and it is bulky and uncomfortable. Hmmm…maybe I could sit in the floor at Mike’s and test it? lol!

    Not for me. It is to thick and sits too high on my lap making it an uncomfortable height.
