I gave this 4 stars because the quality is excellent. Mat is thick, magnets strong, the lines and measurements are very helpful. I'm not sure that I need this product, as I don't really feel the need to lay things out, pin them into place with the magnets, and then hold the mat up to look at it? However, there may be occasions when that is helpful. I've used the lines a bit, and as I get used to it, I think I will use them in more ways. The black color makes working with a dark background paper difficult.
This magnetic cutting surface, magnets, and magnetic ruler are totally great! I've been doing various paper crafts for many years and have tried many different paper cutters. After receiving the Basic Grey set, I have ditched all my other cutters. It's so much more accurate and easy to see where to cut than a system with a rotary cutter on a rail. If you sew much, you've probably used a rotary cutter. And I had occasionally "borrowed" my sewing mat and rotary cutter to cut a larger paper project. But the MAGNETIC aspect is what makes the system even better. The 12 x 12 size is perfect, and if your paper is "magneted" down, you can simply rotate the entire mat to cut the next edge. Added bonus: doesn't take up as much space as rotary or guillotine paper trimmer either.
