I first saw this product on a scrapbook presentation on a TV show and just loved all the features presented. By the time I decided to buy, it was sold out.....I came to this superstore to purchase and it was sold out here as well.....I put my name on the list to notify me when it came back in stock. I ordered once I was notified that it was back in stock.
I have to tell you that this is by far the BEST scrapbooking tool I have purchased to date. I can't believe it took me so long to invest in a GOOD mat. The oversized mat is great. There's room to have your 12 x 12 layout and still work off to the side. The oversized ruler is nice as well.....The magnetic element is by far the BEST feature about this product. it comes with 8 little magnets that have just the right amount of magnetism to them. They hold your papers, embellies in place while still being able to manuever things around on your layout until you decide you want to adhere it. The craft/Xacto knife is nice as well. I haven't used the rotary cutter or circle cutter yet, but if they are up to the same quality as the other items, I'm sure they are great too.
The mat/ruler/magnets are worth the price of admission. I love this product and I just can't believe it took me so long but was definitely worth the wait.

I love this entire kit and am very glad I spent the money. I was originally looking for a good circle cutter and saw that this came with one and so much more! The mat is magnetic which makes keeping your paper still while cutting so easy. It comes with 8 smaller magnets for holding embellishments onto your page until you are ready to attach them, which is great if you're always running out of time!
Only cons: The rotary cutter leaves a little much to be desired but I use the craft knife instead which works great. The circle cutter is a little rough on pictures printed on thinner photo paper but again, I'm so happy with how good it works on other things that I do not mind.
You've GOT to get one of these!
I saw someone using a magnetic ruler and mat at one of my lss and looked everywhere locally for one. Then I came across this and had to get it. I am very pleased with the size of both the ruler and mat, and also the strength of the magnet. Haven't tried the circle cutter yet, but everything else is well worth it. I think the oversized ruler and mat make it worth it in itself.
The oversized mat and ruler and the BEST, giving plenty of work space when working with 12" x 12" papers and cardstock. The rotary cutter works for cutting straight stripts of paper or fabric. Every tool in this set is wonderful to work with.

I use this on nearly every lay-out I make. It is perfect for cutting angled lines, and also for straight lines. The magnetic ruler holds the paper in place while you do the cutting. Well worth the investment.

THIS IS THE BEST ....AND I CANNOT EMPHASIZE ON "THE BEST" ENOUGH....MAT EVER!!!! ALSO, SO MUCH BETTER THAN THE "BASICGREY" MAGNETIC MAT. I CANNOT WORK W/O IT!!
The circle maker is difficult for me to use as I have arthritis in my hands, but that's alright as I will give that one to my sister, who doesn't have arthritis in her hands and I will use the Magnetic one. The rest is just fine and I have been very pleased.
I recently purchased this set and I love it! It is really nice to be able to lay your project on the mat, using the gridlines, it is extrememly easy to measure items to cut, to line up items on your LO in a straight line! The magnetic ruler is great also for measuring, it will NOT move!! I love it that the ruler is so long, to fit from one end of the mat to the other so that you can line up and measure accurately!! I never had anything straight before getting this set!!
It has 8 additional small magnets to keep items in place, you can hold the mat straight up and nothing will move or fall off with these! I have only used the rotary cutter so far, but I love how it cuts so easily, I also love the guard on it so little hands can't get cut!!!
This is a great set....it never leaves my work space, every LO I do, I do on this mat fully utilitizing all the great pieces!!! This is an excellent product!
I saw a demonstration of this product and knew I had to get it! The Mat is the perfect size, and the oversized ruler is awesome! I was looking for a great product that would prevent my paper from slippping while cutting and this is it! The magnets are very strong... Over all, I love this Mat and would totally recommend this to anyone!
I think this is my favorite crafting product I have bought this year! It is absolutely fab! It cuts circles and lines perfectly and the magnetic Idea was excellent! This is the best tool set that I own and I have a ton!
