I wish they were sold here butI look on Amazon. I have a Creative Memories one and it's black and works great. In Google I just type "Self Healing Mat" and you get results. I personally love the color and want to buy the American Crafts Self Healing Mat - it's a minty blue color! I believe that's what Wilna has as I've noticed it in some of her videos.

I have a very large Fiskars I bought at Walmart in the sewing section. It is a little over a yard wide. I love it. It's reversible. I think it was around $30.

I've used my big quilting mat to scrap on. Mine isn't very nice, I think I paid about $15 for it at Walmart. But I can cut on it, and if I get ink on it, no big deal!

I have a large Fiskar's mat. It's apple green on one side and yellow on the other. It works wonderfully and I'm sure I used a coupon on it from M's or J's. I've had it at least 10 years and it still looks like new.

I'll clean it with a baby wipe and every so often I take a magic eraser to it. It collects adhesive and the eraser works well because the mat has a texture.

Basket1lady, that is the one I have. I went thru several of the MM mats. They were terrible to warp and you couldn't fit 2 12x12 layouts side by side on them. The Fiskars is so durable and its big enough too.

I have the MAKING MEMORIES LARGE CUTTING MAT that I've had for years that stays on my workstation at home.

When I go to crops I take my AMERICAN CRAFT AQUA MAT that is a bit smaller.

Ones sold in the sewing department are larger than the ones sold in the scrapbooking department.

I have an assortment, but my new favorite is similar to this but a different brand.
It's huge, I love it, great protector mist over-spray too.

Another vote for the Making Memories mat that Treyaut linked. I do the same; that one stays at home on my IKEA table and I bring a smaller one on crops.
