I was in the market for a new cutting mat because my old one had gotten warped and covered with paint etc. I found this one by We R Memory Keepers and I love it. It is designed perfectly so the mat folds down for easy transport to crops and when you unfold it lays perfectly FLAT! Love that! Also it is magnetic and includes the magnetic ruler! Such a great deal!
Love this magnetic mat!!! I have a larger work mat with measurements so I didn't think I really needed this but so glad I got it. No longer have to tape my page in place or have critical elements move as I'm working. I purchased locally some small easy to grasp magnets that look like push pins and along with the magnetic ruler that came with the mat I can keep everything right where I want it. Especially great if I am leaving the project for awhile and come back to it later. And I love that it folds smaller for storage or travel. Scrapbook.com had a great price for a tool that makes my scrapping more fun.
I loved this mat when I received it. The scalloped edges had very little gap between them when the mat was unfolded and the ruler allowed for very precise cuts. However, after 9 months of intermittent use (about one weekend per month), the scalloped edges of the cutting surface are peeling away from the magnetic mat. Now I can't even use it as a flat measuring surface because my paper can't lay flat on it. At this point, I would consider exchanging it for a replacement, but I would not purchase it again.
When I bought this mat in February I thought I had died and gone to heaven! About 3 months ago one of the folds started to spread and then the backing started to come apart. Now the other one is starting. It is now useless as it won't lay flat at all.
When I first purchased this mat I loved it. So convenient, folded it fitted perfectly into my scrap bag. Magnetic Ruler etc all good ideas.
Unfortunately the folds have now completely split and it falls apart. When placed back together it moves around whilst working and is a nuisance. I have now resorted to taping it together which defeats the purpose of the folding idea. Very disappointed as I love WRMK products.
