This is probably the most fundamental scrapbooking product I own... I organized my table top in my studio around this mat :) I use this mat for all my layouts and projects, even on the GO. And it's not only great for cutting, but it also acts as protection for my furniture... it catches all the paint splatter, adhesive, glitter and other messy stuff. I love it and highly recommend it.

This is a great mat. I use it not only for cutting but for positioning my pages when I am not doing things on angles. Because I can put the 12 x 12 page within the measurements exactly, it helps gets things center. The retractable knife is great for a household with kids so if I forget to put it away, my step daughter won't grab it and cut herself.
I use this for every project!! I love it... the ruler is great, and i love using an exacto knife to cut paper on the self-healing mat!! Mine has so much glue, paint and adhesive on it, that soon i will have to buy another to replace it!! I never start a project without laying out my EK mat, ruler an knife first!

The thickness that cutting mat has just good.
Therefore it is not disturbed all the time.
It is easy to use the cutter and thinks that it was good to purchase it.
This is a great all-in-one set for beginners and veterans alike. I love that it comes with replacment blades and that the retractable tool is easy to grip.

I really like this product and I use it with most of the projects I work on. The board makes a great flat even surface to place papers and write on them or draw. I am still using the first blade I put in when I bought this over a year ago. The ruler dosen't slide around or slip out of your hands and when you make cuts the board "self-heals" and dosen't have any ruts or ridges in it.
