I've noticed alot of people are using circles on their layouts. I wouldn't mind trying a few on my layouts, something to spice up my album. My question is how do you cut the circles? I am assuming you are using some kind of cutter...so I guess what I am asking is what cutter brands are you using and generally how much do they cost? The only circle cutter I am really familiar with (but don't have) are the Creative Memories ones.

I got the Curvy Cutter for this reason. I got the most positive feedback from the people on this site, about it. I haven't used it yet... too busy w/ a new baby HTH!!!

I love cm circle cutters, I've had mine for over 7 years. I also have the curvy cutter, but I've only had to use it to make large circles.

I have the CM and the Cutter Bee ones. I like the CM ones for smaller circles, but you are limited to a certain size. With the Cutter Bee you can make larger circles.

I have the CM cutting system too, and believe me, it is the best! You get a nice, clean cut each time, and you have the ability to cut shapes in several sizes.

I have CM cutting system also. I just saw the cutest layout on the Fiskars site using circles. You'll have to check it out. It's one of the April Layouts.

Another vote for the Curvy cutter!! You can cut larger circles with this than the CM one, that's my fav thing about it.

I have the Coluzzle system. It is very reasonable priced and also you can get different shapes besides circle and oval. In it you can get star, heart, even alphabets, and many many more!!

This is one of the famous questions that are posted often, i love my CM cutter system, cant be any happier with the tools! Go to their website and you will be able to see all the different shapes and prices. I am not a con of CM but love their cutting system tools.

I don't know if this is too old school but I simply use a circle template made by Crafters Workshop and cut it out by hand. There's lot's of sizes and the milar template is very inexpensive....heehee, I spend WAY to much money on scrapbook products so I try to save where I can

Oh my thanks for all the responces ladies...you were all very helpful. There were several layouts in the gallery that are just awesome and they have circles on them. I had to know what was being used for them. I think I still have a CM catalog around here so I will check out those prices and compare them to the others that were mentioned.

I would go with the CutterBee Curvy Cutter for sure!! I had never used a circle cutter I liked until that. I would recomend using a glass mat for cutting though, it works a lot better!!!
