Since my Cuttlebug is no longer in production and plates are not easy to come by, I thought I would try Magic Mat. I love it!! Helps with the really intricate dies that I would normally have to run through the machine two and three times with the plastic "C" plate. I would have given it 5 stars but it's warping and curling somewhat and I didn't think this would happen. I could have waited for the 6" x 8" that was coming out in June, but I was too impatient so I got the extended version 6 x 14.5". Glad now that I did because it gives me more mat space.
