Which cutting mat do you use?? I'm wanting a new one and I'd like it to be extra large. Where do I find the super big ones?? I need it to cover alot of area to keep my desk from getting scratched etc. thanks!!!!!!!!

I use a self heel cutting mat found in the sewing section. I have the larger one.

Look in the sewing area/supplies. You can find them in different size. You're going to want to use a coupon as they can get pricey the bigger they are.

BTW - if you want something to actually cut on (like with a circle cutter or craft knife) it's easier on a glass mat.

It's not huge (15 x 15), but I love my BasicGrey magnetic cutting mat!

I love my Fiskars self-healing mat. It's 18 x 24 but I think they have one even larger, maybe 24 x 36. Mine came from Amazon, but I've seen them at JoAnn's in the sewing section. I second the suggestion to use a coupon!

I also purchased a large one in the sewing section. I love it. It's green on one side and black on the other. I've had it for years. For crops I take my 13 x 13 one from MM or is it BG with the magnets.

I bought my Fiskars mat at Joanns with a coupon (or it may have already been on sale - I can't remember). The only I don't like about it is it will warp if I use my heat gun near it. Trust me on this... this is my second Fiskars mat! If you watch Kristina Werner's videos, she always uses her heat gun near her mat (Dahle Self-Healing Cutting). I don't know if 2Peas sells these, but it is definitely the next one that I buy!

The WRMK mat is awesome. I can fit 2 pages on it at a time.

thanks for asking this...i'm in the market for a new one too. i loved the CM mat i had, but accidentally left it in the car after a crop and it warped. i've currently got a Fiskars and it's been great, but i need a larger one and a super smoothe surface. definitely going to check out the sewing section!

I purchased mine at Hobby Lobby. It is large and green and was found in the mat cutting section (vs. sewing section). A coupon keeps them reasonable.
