Hi ~ My name is Shannon and I am looking for craft room ideas.  I have a small room to work with and my main craft is scrapbooking.  Thanks so much for your ideas.

I found the coolest scrapbook thing ever!  It's called the scrapbox but it is really pricey!!!  Look it up on the internet.

We went to Home Depot and bought a slab of already cut counter top and my husband installed it. It is perfect for scrapbooking! Here is a picture of when I just got the counter top. I now have photos on the shelves and a cart that I got at JoAnns that holds 12x12 paper.

  • Magnets - I have a wonderful magnet board next to my desk, but the office supply store only offered magnets in red, yellow, blue and green-colors that were NOT a part of my color scheme. Instead, I bought a roll of magnet tape at a craft store and went looking through my embellishments to find fun magnet decorators. The picture pebbles I've had for a while were just what I needed. Did you know that the KI Memories circle tags fit perfectly underneath them? Add a magnet and you've got a great looking (and functional) decoration. (Buttons with a flat back also make great magnets.)

  • Photo Cubes - I bought clear plastic photo cubes to use as decorations in my new office. However, instead of using photos to fill each side, I chose different patterned papers that matched my color scheme and filled each side with patterns. It was a fun way to add an accent color to the room!

  • Lamps - Technically, I suppose ribbon and corded trim were added to scrapbooking after they were already decorative craft item, but since they came out of my scrapbooking stash, I consider it a scrapbook supply decoration. I used black and pink ribbon as well as a black corded trim to spruce up some plain white lampshades.

  • Photo Frames - Who says you have to have a pre-made photo mat for a frame? Why not use patterned paper and cardstock to mat your photograph within a frame? You can even get creative and add stamps or embellishments.

I have been working on my craft room also,  but after seeing all the wonderful suggestions I am stopping and rethinking what I really really want.  I also found scrap counter top at Menards  (super cheap!) and was going to place it over a great wooden file cabinet I got on freecycle, but  now I need to dream bigger!
