Default What's the best scrapbooking mat?

I want to purchase a scrapbooking mat to protect my desk from cutting, glue, and all that jazz.

I'm at a loss of which one to get.

Which mats do you like?

I have a collection of not-quite right mats but now I have the perfect one --
Versamat by CTMH. Soft surface on one side for stamping, cutting/gluing hard mat on the other with easy-to-read white on black grid lines.

I use the Ragers non-stick mat for super gooey messes but for day to day, I bought one of those huge Martha Stewart cutting mats and I love it. It looks bad from ink, paint, etc but I don't have to dig out a separate cutting mat, it's a good stamping surface, and it covers my the entire area where I stamp. Every now and then I clean it with 409 to get off the grime.

I like my Basic Grey 12x12 Magnectic Mat for my regular mat and then I put my ranger craft mat on top if I am distressing, heat embossing, or anything messy!!

I use a beveled piece of glass. It's much easier to cut on if you're using a craft knife, plus very easy to clean.

I use a quilting mat on my desk. Its 18x24 and works well. Before I dug this one out of my stuff, I found plastic craft mats at the dollar store. They are a little bit bigger than 18x24 and are made of the same plastic the flexible kitchen cutting mats are made of. I did see a post on a blog where someone was using their kids' old crazy carpet to protect their table.

I use an 18x24 cutting mat that I purchased in the art section of Hobby Lobby. It was cheaper than the mats found in the scrapbook or quilting section, around $7 with my coupon, I believe. It provides the right amount of coverage on my table and I can use my cutting tools directly on it. I also keep a Ranger's non stick craft mat that I pull out when I need to sponge, glue, glimmer mist, etc since it wipes off so easily.

I'm not sure if there is a miracle mat that does it all. I use the Martha Stewart self healing mats for everything except embossing. I once used my heat gun and that caused it to warp, so now I use the Ranger Non-Stick for the heat gun. I like the fact that I can get the MS mat at 50% off at Michaels. I think it comes in two or three sizes.
