I love this splat mat! I have inked, embossed, heated, painted, and stickled on it and everything wipes off, well, except the embossing...lol!!! It is thin, so I can work on top of it, but nothing can harm my work surface anymore!!! I leave it on my desk at all times, so it is always there no matter what technique I decide to do. The only problem is that when inking on it, the ink rubs onto your fingers and hands as easily as it wipes off and if you forget this, you can transfer the ink to other items without intending to.
I ordered mine from sb.com and was a little worried that it might not stay flat because it rolls up. It has not been a problem at all. It works just like it's supposed to, NOTHING that I have used sticks to it, it doesn't even stain with ink. The only thing is, if you stamp off the edges of something, you either need another paper under it, or have to remember to wipe the extra ink off of the spat mat so it doesn't accidentally transfer onto something it shouldn't be on.
Over all, I'm very pleased with it.
My scrapping sister suggested this mat to me and it is wonderful! I have it on my work area all the time. It is great for stamping as you can use embossing powder or glitter and the mess stays right on the mat. Clean up is super easy, all I use is a baby wipe to clean it off. Also great when using a heat tool because it protects the surface under it from the heat. Now that I have this I can't imagine how I did without it!
I bought a brand new scrap room work table so I immediately ordered this from Scrapbook.com. I'd seen this advertised and looked at the description on Scrapbook.com yet never ordered. When I received my new work table I decided it was time to buy this to protect the new table and make it last. This mat is a good size - not too small, but not so big that it's hard to move it out of the way if needed.
This splat mat is great for my table. No more glue marks or pen marks, and I am creating more because I am no longer afraid of damaging my tabletop. It's very portable and great for crops and classes. I wish I had this with me at a recent crop. Something from the store table got onto my layout, and this would have prevented that. I will always travel with it!

...and MORE! Great investment for your scrap surface. Keeps it neat and tidy, keeps glue, adhesives, glitter and most everything from staining your surface and ruining your artwork. I even use it when doing iron-ons when sewing my banners, keeps my iron clean! Great product!
Love this mat. Was afraid it wouldn't lay flat because it arrives rolled but it is fine. And it's true, NOTHING sticks. I had a plastic ruled mat before and it got sticky but everything wipes right off on this one and it's bigger. Must give it a big thumbs up.
I have used strip adhesive, liquid glue, inks and all kinds of products used in card making, and nothing sticks. Wipes right off, you roll it up whe you're done using it, and store it back in the packaging and put away on the shelf. Great product I highly endorse.
I had a Tim Holtz mat, really liked it; but then some holes appeared in the center--guess I'd worn it out. So thought I'd try this one. So far it has worked great. I use my mat with every lo to protect the dining room table I work at.

I love this mat. I find that everything cleans or flicks off it so easily. If I'm not going to work on a layout for a couple of days I cover it with this mat...keeps the dust off!

I even use this when I'm watering my african violets (lol)
I don't have the benefit of a separate room to work in just for scrapping. Kathy

When I first received it I was not sure that I would like it ....but I really do it works well and is easy to roll up and take with me to a crop. The other best thing about it is that it clean up well. Very good product.
My only scrap table is my dining table or coffee table. And I've made the mistake of getting glue and/or glitter all over the wood dining table. No I just use the splat mat and it takes my mess with it! So great!
This mat is WAY thinner than i thought it would be--i thought it would be a thick item i could keep on my desk at all times--like a cutting mat. This is thinner than a dollar store laminated placemat, and now that i think about it rather than spending the 17.99 i did here, i could have went to the dollar store and bought 18--and just threw them away when they were trashed. Also, this is tan and brown striped--looks solid color in the pic--really doesnt go with my desk. I will use it till it dies, and then am headed to the dollar store!
This splat mat is the best out there on the market!! I can do painting, embossing, glue, and adding expoy to handmade embellishments! In fact, I have found there is nothing that can't do with this mat. This mat is large enough to handle any type of project. It cleans up easily and quickly. After it dries, it's ready for the next project. I have had this product for months and there is no signs of any wear or tear. I would highly recommend this item to everyone who does crafts. Is worth the money, yes!
I recieved this mat in a monthly box that i had gotten last year.. they had run out of another product i had ordered and i got two of these wonderful mats..I am so thankfull i kept both
I just want to tell all mom's out there that this is a great mat for all your kiddo's to do there crafts on including ink's, glitter glue, markers..and the list goes on.
I especially like it for stamping myself...it does clean up very nicely
hope you enjoy it as much as we do......linda
Crafting is streamlined with this tool. I paint on it and any spills, when dry, can be peeled off or moistened and wiped right off. When I use glitter I work on the mat so when finished, I can make the mat into a trough and dump the overspill back into the bottle. I roll my mat up when finished and store it on a shelf. I never worry about hot glue spills; this mat can take it.

This mat is amazing...you can do anything on this mat. So far I've inked on mine and the ink comes right off with nothing but water and a paper towel! Glue, once dried, just peels or wipes right off. It's also wonderful for trash - since it can be moved easily, you can put all your trash on it and once you're done, just empty it into the trash. I'd highly recommend this mat!
i purchased 2 of these so while one is holding one project i can move on with another one. i just love these they hold up to everything, cleaning is a wiz. it does exactly what it says it wil do, you don't find that very often but it is true. try 1 you will enjoy it and think why did i wait so long to get one!!!!!! enjoy.
This product is AMAZING !!!. Every scrapper needs it. Nothing sticks to it. Wipes right off, covers the surface your working on and helps prevent scratching and staining. I wish i had this years ago !!
