Magic Mat ~ Scrapbook.com

Hi friends~  I've never written this kind of post before, but this was too amazing not to share.

Do you ever struggle with intricate dies cutting cleanly through your die cutting machine?  I have a few cover plate dies that are so pretty, but they don't get used because this is how they cut.
I ran this die cut through my die cutting machine, with new cutting plateswith shims, several times and this is the result I got every time! 
Scrapbook.com released the Magic Mat over a year ago and I'm always hesitant to jump on board just to buy the newest tools because they tend to be a bit pricey.  Hey, it took me almost 2 years before I bought a MISTI!  
Well, Scrapbook.com has recently marked the prices way down on the Magic Mat's so I thought I would try one.  

They come in several different sizes to fit in different machines.  I bought the Extended Cutting Pad (6x14 1/2") that works with the Sizzix Big Shot.

I'm not joking with you, but this is how it cut after running the die through my machine just one time!  

I seriously could not have been more amazed at how well it cut!

I cut a couple of these intricate dies out and made two cards, simply because I wanted to try it again.  I'm totally sold on using the Magic Mat for intricate dies! 

You can find all the Magic Mat sizes HERE!

Make sure you scroll down and read the description and details of the Magic Mat to make sure it fits the machine you're using. This is not a sponsored post by Scrapbook.com.  I just wanted to share my honest thoughts about this truly amazing cutting pad.  
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Wow, what a difference and your cards turned out beautifully!

  2. WHOA! That IS amazing! Hmmmm, guess I'll take a closer look at that. I also need to do the Jen McGuire boil hot water trick to even out my plates, I can almost serve chowdah out of them they are so bowed LOL Pretty, pretty card, that die is fabulous!

  3. Wow that did do a fantastic job, I see it will work in my gemini too. I tried the I mat, can't remember where I found that but it didn't work as well as I thought it would. Does it bend real bad after using?
    Your card is so cute, love that border with the flower truck.
    Glad you found something to work with that lovely background die :)
