Did you notice on yesterday’s post, on my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, that I have a green cutting mat? One of my dear stamping friends and convention (when we have them in person) roommates, sent one of these mats to each of her erstwhile roomies a few years ago.

Back to business………. Why the green OLFA mat? It helps to prevent the lovely #3 clear acrylic cutting mats from getting so scratched up. I try to always use the same #3 cutting mat on the bottom of my ‘sandwich’, laying it atop the #1 platform.
I’ve worn out two of these OLFA mats so far. I purchased replacements on Amazon I think, in a pack of 5. They’re 6″ x 8″.
So, that’s the way I do my die cutting. And I know of three other stampers at least who do the same. 🙂 Now you know what that ‘green thing’ is for as well. Happy stamping!
