I didn't realise how I depend on this until today (01 May 2010)
This beautiful purple magnetic mat has apparently become my must have scrapbooking tool. After trekking to a friend's house today without it I realised how much I rely on the magnetic properties to align the photos, ribbons etc on my project. The ruler keeps things like ribbon in place while glue is drying and there are also a few small magnets that can be used to keep things in place and even keep foam embellishments from unfolding from the desired shape. The size is another huge plus, after using 12x12 mats this one is a joy to work with.
