I love this sheet!!! It really saved my butt when I spilled some alcohol ink on the table. Thankfully, it spilled on the craft sheet. It's very slick so you are able to use the ink blender the way Tim Holtz does (ie., bringing the ink onto the paper from the sheet). The slickness is great, but I wish that just one side was slick and not both sides because it tends to slide around on the table as you work. Aside from that, I really love it!

I purchased two of these Craft Sheets after watching a Tim Holtz video. I destroyed my favorite self healing cutting mat when I forgot to remove it before using my heat gun. With this craft mat I don't have to worry about heat damage from embossing, ironing, and hot glue.
My daughter uses the second one as a work surface for her jewelry making. There is not way to be disappointed with this product. I plan to plug it on my blog!
I have wanted this CRAFT SHEET ever since I saw Tim Holtz use it in one of his videos. I absolutely love Tim and Ranger products. This CRAFT SHHET will not let you down. It is very easy to clean. Either wipe up the ink or paint while wet or wiat for it to dry and peel it off. I love embossing on it because it can withstand the heat of the heating tool. I am planning on buying an additional one for baking.
This sheet is a must have to protect your scrap/craft area. You will not be disappointed.

Easy to clean, you can apply paints right on the mat like a palette, and it just washes right off. Paper mâché? Cleans like a breeze. The only thing it can't do is withstand cutting. Ruined one by using my exacto knife in a hurry, and that took it's toll over time. Love this mat, keeps my worksite tidy, protects my work surface, and makes the creative process that much easier because you can use it as a part of the process.
I bought 2 of these, one for each work table, after the instruct of the 12 days of tags series. I expected something more substantial and thicker. It slides around on my work surfaces and is difficult to get all of the residue of crafting wiped off as the mat slides around and then gets creased when wiping. Overall, a great idea and decent size but not what works well for me and the size could be wider by about 6 inches to help me out. I think, perhaps, that a silicon baking mat would be cheaper, thicker, wider, and attain the same result.
I bought this on a whim because I liked the idea of the easy clean. It is true that the paint and other crafting items will scrap off, but they don't scrap off as easy as expected. As the picture also indicates, this sheet comes rolled in a box. When I took mine out of the box, it was curled up and still hasn't straightened out. Maybe it will with more use, but I guess I had a magic paper expectation. It is fine, but definitely NOT a MUST HAVE.d

I like the idea of this for its ease in clean up, however, it slides very easily and you can't tack it down so that it won't slide around on you. It would have been better to have had one side tacky or made stiffer in any case its very limp.
After reading all the glowing reviews about this product, I finally bought it after looking at it for awhile. I could have done without it. It's thin like wax paper and VERY slippery on your work surface. It may keep my table clean, but so does the piece of an old thin rubber mat that my husband cut for me to use to work on. And in the end who really cares if it gets messy or stained? My crafting history is in those stains, they were made with love :-). An old piece of plastic shower curtain would work just as well. Way too much money for this item.
I am in LOVE! This is truly a must have for any crafter! You know when you run that adhesive runner a little to far and go off the project onto your mat or table and you are stuck with that glob until you clean it off? I really hate that! With thus mat, you run the adhesive with your finger and in balls up so you can easily dispose of it!!!!! It does the same with a multitude of glues also! Any adhesive and any glue are no match for this mat!!! NO MORE GLUE OR ADHESIVE stuck on your mat to end up a black spot on another project! Also, ink and gelato cleans right up with just a swipe with a paper towel or napkin. Nothing sticks to this mat! If you don't have one of these, you NEED it! Seriously will make your crafting life easier! All you have to do is tack it down with your lamp and scoot it over to use your cutter. :)
I LOVE this product! I actually have the smaller one (maybe 9x12??) and I am planning on upgrading to the bigger one. This craft sheet can withstand ANYTHING. Well, except for scissors, which I found out one day by accident :) Yes, I ruined my craft sheet by picking up my craft sheet with a sheet of paper and cut a pretty heart out of my sheet :) I don't know how I lived without this! it's a must have for any inking, painting or anything else that you do that is messy! I recommend getting mini misters (or any spray bottle) and fill it up with water. If I let something dry on my mat (such as paint or whatever) all you have to do is spray it with water, and scrap it off! and it comes off easy too! I use an old shirt and just wipe everything off the mat. I can't say enough good things about this item!
I have had this craft sheet for a few years now. I've to say this is a very useful tool to have. For not just the average Scrapbooker, Card maker or even craft person in general. This product should be use by any artists. Because it protects your work surface. From spills or you can also use this as a paint palette or even water color palette for painting etc. I might have to buy a second sheet in the future to be able to lay on a big table. I will be having in my room/Art studio.

Love this mat for doing just about anything with ink, paint, hot glue, paper - cleans up with no effort. Love that it lays flat even if it's been kept rolled up for awhile. Best of all, buy it once, it lasts and lasts and lasts, no point trying to save a few dollars getting a cheap look-alike; they just don't stand up to the demands of any serious crafter, or even the needs of just an occasional/hobbyist crafter.
I am happy to have purchased this item. Due to limited space in an apt. I have to do my creating on the dining room table. Have used a plastic table cloth to cover my table put it tears easily. This craft sheet is thicker, can be rolled away and put up instead of having the plastic table cloth left on the table with some supplies. I haven't used it yet but I am excited about purchasing this product.
The Ranger Non Stick Craft Sheet is an absolute essential for paper crafting. I hesitated to get one for a long time, it is rather expensive, but finally did and do not know how I got along without it. Anything and everything is easily cleaned from the craft sheet, and it does not wear out, so in the long run, a good deal for the price. I recently bought a second one for another work surface.
This craft sheet is not a question of whether or not to have one. It is an absolute necessity for crafters. I have had as many as five of them at a time because guests come over and I supply them with one to use too. I have done everything in the world to them, including cutting a circle out of one, which I taped and kept using. For hot or cold, sticky or no, this mat is a must have.
I had heard so much about this product, all good, but thought I didn't need it until I was mass producing Christmas cards and got hot glue all over my desk.
I wish I would have ordered this sooner! It is amazing! A definate must have fo crafters and beyond as it does so mush more than just protect your craft area.
A VERY pleased customer.
I love love love this craft sheet when I'm blending my alcohol inks from ranger and when I'm painting with my arcylic paints on my projects! This is a must have, I was using the wrapping from sticker sheets before I got this craft sheet and it is perfect! It protects your surface area where you are doing your project! Great item!
I absolutely love my craft mat! I love how easy it is to clean it. I did have some issues with staining but that is b/c my daughter got in there *without me knowing* and spilled some alcohol ink on my mat. I did not find it until the next day and by then it had stained my mat. Normal use, it does not stain though.
This is so great for stamping, inking & scrapbooking! It's great for figuring out placement of stickers, inking Petaloo Color Me Crazy alpha sticker or painting. Whatever get stuck on it will come right off - I even use it when pouring out my Scentsy!
Once you get this you will not want to create without it!
I really struggled with weather or not to buy this craft mat. but after reading lots of the reviews I decided to try it. And boy am I so glad I am! I love using it when I'm blending inks, or doing anything slightly messy. It is so easy to clean with just a spray of water! One of the best purchases I've made!
I was pleasantly amazed at how well this worked! When I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist Spray for the first time, the overspray just wiped off when dry. Storage is no problem either, just roll up and slide back in the box or leave it right on the table. I just love it and wish I had ordered it sooner!

This is by far the best non-stick craft sheet you can use.
Now, after buying two other brands of this type sheet, I highly recommend the Ranger sheet. Go ahead and buy it. You'll be glad you did.
You can tell the Ranger sheet has a thicker coating on both sides. Paint and ink will not go through it.
I love this craft sheet and don't know how I've lived without it. I love the size and protection it gives my workspace from everything I do, alcohol inks, paint, glue, embossing, inking, stamping. It cleans up easily and is extremely durable. I highly recommend it for the "crafty" scrapbooker.

A must have. Over time I have learned to bring the sponge to the may not the mat to the sink... It gets all crinkled up and ugly in a hurry that way!!! I like a nice smooth surface to stay that way :) once I finally got the hang of this- even on crazy projects- I love it- won't work without it!
As soon as it arrived, I had to test some of the claims. I left some mod podge on it until it had completely dried and it peeled right off! I leave mine spread out next to my cutting mat for easy access for all gluing, painting, masking. It is far superior to the paper mats I was using.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this product. I was able to cut into 4 sheets that fit a large print bible and a smaller regular print bible. I use them to safely journal in my bible using page prep methods from Rebekah R Jones class and it allows VERY quick clean up afterward as it is non-stick!
This sheet is absolutely fantastic, much better than the newspapers I had been using for gluing, painting, inking, paint spraying and all other messy jobs. The surface is non-porous and very heat-resistant. Best of all, solid gunk peels right off and paint comes off with a dry cloth.
This is just perfect for what I was looking for! Wipes off washable ink easily and it gets heavy use with my card making. Its size is perfect for my needs and love that you can craft things using your hot glue gun and any drips, it comes right off from this sheet! Highly recommend!
I don't know how I ever functioned without this mat. It is water repellent,stain proof and so easy to clean! Adhesives come right off. I use the mat as my canvas! Just apply your ink or paint to the craft sheet and press your paper onto the mat then wipe it off with a damp cloth.
I debated about purchasing this product. I am so glad I finally did buy it. So far I've used it for painting, stamping, and spraying. It protects your working surface and clean up is EASY! If you are thinking about buying this craft sheet.....think no longer. Buy it!
I had to put off venturing into heat embossing until I bought my craft mat. The mat is great! I've used it for distressing grunge board also and have found the mat to clean up very easily. I was especially surprised that it lays flat, especially for how thin it is!
I always saw this mat used in videos and demos and always thought some day I'll pick one. Well I did and I love this thing! Makes all my inking and blending and misting a piece of cake to clean up! Its generous in its size. Gotta have this as a part of ur SB supplies.
This is GREAT to use when stamping, painting or inking & wipes clean w/a little water & a paper towel! I get a ton of use out of it & highly recommend...just don't try to do any cutting on it cuz it isn't one of those kind of mats & will cut. DEFinitely worth the $.
Once I found this product, I was amazed that I was ever able to work without it! It's amazing how nothing sticks to it! This is a must have for stamping, spraying, melting, embossing, etc.! You can do it all on this and not worry about messing up your work space.
Every since I bought this non-stick craft sheet by Ranger Ink, I've had an easy clean-up time every time I use my spray inks or anything that might make a mess. It really is true that nothing will stick to your craft sheet. All crafters should have one.
Great product. Clean up is so easy! I wish I had one to cover my whole work table. Also, I use this craft sheet in the oven to melt beads. The beads are easily scraped off with an old credit card and poured from the craft sheet into a baggie for storage.

Tim Holtz never ceases to amaze me. This non stick craft sheet is fabulous! Never again do I need to worry about damaging my work surface. This sheet is so durable and NOTHING sticks to it or stains it! It is such easy clean up. Best product out there!
I love this craft sheet. It saves from staining my counter where I have to work, and it's easy to clean and reuse, unlike the paper pads that you have to replace. Scrapbook.com delivered very fast. I have many things on my wishlist to order from here.
When I took this out of the box it came in I was surprised it was soo thin. I thought it was going to more of a mat. But it's a sheet (yes, just like it says in the name) and it is perfect for my scrapping table! everything just wipes right off!
This is an awesome tool, even my Copic airbrush cleaned up off it after 48 hours!!! I intend to use, abuse and love this mat to pieces... wish it were bigger and a prettier colour though, but that would be too too much goodness in one thing!
Wish I'd bought it sooner to protect my table and counter. I do recommend the alcohol blending solution, which takes the ink off easily. I use the craft sheet for almost every lo--just automatically put it on the table and start working.

A must have. I thought it would not be large enough to work on, but after I received it, it leaves plenty of room to scatter a few embossing projects on, and I love how I can glue on it and the glue wipes right off, as well as paints.
I have wanted one of these mats for a long time and finally broke down and bought it. I work on a glass surface for ease in cleaning but this mat has made my messy self so much easier to clean up after. I highly recommend.
Did I mention I LOVE my non stick craft sheet? I have poured virtually everything on it and cleaned it up easily, other things have dried on the mat and I was able to clean them off with ease!
It is wonderful!
This mat makes it so much easier to blend inks and achieve the desired application. It also keeps my work area cleaner by keeping ink off my work table and the mat is so easy to clean up. I just love it!
This thing is amazing! I never would have thought something like this would be necessary, but I don't know how I've lived without it! Inks and paints wipe right off - nothing sticks! Easy cleanup!
It is just the right size and it cleans up easily.
You just have to remember not to use your craft knife on it.
It's nice to have a surface that I don't have to worry how messy or dirty it gets.
LOVE this mat. It works just as promised. EASY clean up. I especially appreciate the fact I can use the heat gun on it without fear of destroying either the mat or anything underneath.
This is a must for gluing, inking, coloring stamping etc. Clean up is wonderful. :-) Just a babywipe away from a clean surface. Made a error in cutting mine so have a get a new one. :-(
I think I will be ordering another sheet.
Cleans up well. Have even used it with Friendly Plastic projects and when I paint I find I can wipe up both oil and acrylic paint easily.
When I first bought the alcohol inks, i didnt think I would need this. Shortly after, found out i did! Really helps keep your work station clean and sooooo easy to clean! I love it!
I love this sheet you can wipe it clean and not mess up your cutting mat; I have this lovely pink Breast Cancer self healing cutting mat & thanks to the craft sheet it stays lovely.
is PERFECT for all your crafting needs...It sure does come in handy when I use the "Tattered Angel Glimmer Mist" sprays.....I would highly recommend this to everyone!.....
This is a slick surface that's great for using inks and easy to clean up. Anything that will leave a mark like using the fuse tool you should put cardstock on top.
Should have gottten this long ago! Love it nothing sticks to it & so far nothing I have used on it has stained it.
These are thin, they do slide around, and it can take a tad bit of time for the craft sheet to unfurl. What I do is take a couple pieces of Washi tape & tape the craft sheet at the corners to my table.
I purchased my first Ranger craft sheet from Michael's, and when I got home and opened the box I found that there was a label saying that the craft sheet was actually used in their classes, so I had ended up paying full price for what was supposed to be a new craft sheet which was obviously used. A lot. The reason I am including that in my review is so that I can attest to its durability and longevity. I have been heavily using this craft sheet for 3 years now, and only in the last 5 months it has it started to not work as well as it should. Black archival ink barely comes off now.
-try not to puncture or cut the sheet
-use washi tape to make sure that the corners stay down so it doesn't curl up on you while you're working.
- don't fold it up

This product was only a bit of a disappointment to me. In many of the "How-to" videos, the size of the craft sheet was MUCH larger and covered a larger surface area. I was surprised that a product costing $18.00 was of such a "Sample" size. I believe that there should be an assortment of sizes available.
That being said, the Ranger Ink - Inkssentials - Reusable Non-Stick Craft Sheet performed exactly as promised. I would definitely recommend this product, as well as all of your other fine & reasonably priced, products.
I have used so many of Ranger's products, and have come to rely on their superiority and ease of use. I especially appreciate your instructional videos introducing new products and how to use them. KEEP ME AMAZED! ...Sharon Turner
I've only used this a couple of times since purchasing it, but it works fantastically! Nothing sticks to it, and even the materials that do wipe right off with a bit of water.
My only minor nitpick is that I was expecting it to be semi-adhesive or at least clingy on one side, so it stayed securely on my work surface. When I first used it, it still held the curl of the packaging and thus wasn't smooth and flat to work on. My table has an angle to it as well so I had to use my own temporary adhesives to keep it from sliding down my table. It's really not a major complaint though, and in all honesty I wish I could only take away 1/2 a star instead of a full one.
I have used the craft sheet several times with various media: paints, embossing powders, etc. Everything really does scrape/peel right off. The only problems I have are that it's nonstick on both sides - it slides around constantly while I'm working. Also, I'm no longer sure I really want a reusable work surface; the materials may scrape off, but doing the actual scraping is tedious. (Picture all the individual grains of stray embossing power that got scattered, and then embossed, all over the sheet. Takes a while using just one's thumb.) Perhaps they should include some sort of scraping/peeling tool? I don't have nearly enough tools in my collection!
The Craft sheet is probably great , although I had thought it would be much heavier so that it would not slid as easily. I have not used it as yet, because I may still try to buy one that I can put my Big Shot on while I use it. I had also purchased one for my daughter. We are waiting to use it later. Thank you, for the follow -up and support with my order.
The other product the The i-2-3-Punch Board by We R memory keepers, is terrific. It has some very handy features, and I will get very good use from this tool.Thank you for Quality products.
I love it! It's a nice neutral color so I leave it on my desk all the time (which is in our main family room). I hve the 15x18 size and it is perfect for pretty much any project. I did scuff mine the first time I used it - forgot it was there and used a sanding block before removing the craft sheet - but I just flipped it over. Would be nice if it were scuff-proof but hey that was my error. :) If you ink at all... you need one of these!

Only one problem with this sheet. It is very thin so when you are working with very hot materials make sure you lay the sheet on top of a mat to prevent any damage to your work area.
Tip: when cleaning off specks of stray embossing powder... I use an old credit card to scrap it off.
I did have a little difficulty getting removing staze on inks other than that it's an excellent re-useable craft sheet that's a little pricy.

Having a craft sheet on your workspace makes going the step further that much easier. I used to go through sheets and sheets of "junk" paper when using mists, paints, or inks. Now I keep my workspace clean and the craft sheet even gives me an idea of how much room to leave for the next project - I try to start with a space each time that is at least as big as the sheet!
Although flimsier than I expected, this sheet has already saved my table. It is the perfect size to protect from sprays & inks, and was not even stained when I used my solvent inks. It can crease, so I recommend always storing rolled up. I am excited to see how it holds up to its claim of heat resistance the next time I solder.
As scrappers we use a lot of wet products. This is great when using alcohol inks because they tend to bleed through the paper. Its also useful to use when using Copics. Most importantly, it good to use this when painting backgrounds and chipboard. The only thing i don't like it that its flimsy.
I have been using this product when I'm glueing and misting things. It's true everything wipes off clean. The misting residue I wiped off when wet. Its really been helping me to keep my workstation clean.
This is a really nice item to have, however it would be nice if it did not slid around so much. One side should be non slide so you are not constantly chasing it around the table.
A lot of crafters on YouTube use this mat, so I thought, since Scrapbook.com had it on sale, I would try it out.
The sheet is very thin and when I use it with the Tim Holtz round blending tool, it has a tendency to want to buckle. The ink does bead nicely on the mat making it easier to blend the ink and use less ink. The mat also cleans up easily.
Because of my limited workspace and the size of my projects, I ended up cutting the mat down to 10 by 15. The sheet cuts very easily so in my workspace I have to move it out of the way frequently and the smaller size means that I don't have to move so much of my project out of the way to put the sheet down.
I still often grab the clear plastic report cover to blend ink onto my project instead of this sheet it works just as well. I am mixed on the true usefulness of this product.
This item is useful but i consider it expensive!...mine has curled on the corners and i have to press same with heavy books to avoid these curls to become more unconfortable. Please low price asap, cause maybe i bought another soon. With the critical economical situation, i prefer to keep money for other essentials and stay with the old one (curled) i have.
I have to say this is one of the best purchases I've made recently. I had been debating for a while on whether I needed one since I already have a large graphed plastic mat on my table. But I hated the way things stuck to it and I was always scraping something off or risk it getting on my projects. This craft sheet really does make cleaning up so much easier. I love it!
