Could anyone give me any advice on which circle cutter to purchase?

I have 2 systems I like - the Creative Memories cutting system with circle templates. I like this for layering photos and mats. But for making larger circles, I really love the WeRMemory Keepers Magnetic Cutting system. It really works great!! I've also seen this at ACMoores and Hobby Lobby.

I liked my Creative Memories one but it has definite size limits. I have the We R Memory Keepers set now and will admit it took me a bit to get the hang of it but I am very happy with it now!!

I used to just say "get them all!" but am not familiar with bottom two. Like many i started with Creative Memories - I use them often, especially for circles under 6. I can see easily where I am cutting.
I needed larger - so I bought the COluzzle circle template (have to use a foam mat with this one, so I don't reach for it as often), both the large and smaller. I used these as well - and with this system there is no margin for error,so if I am cutting a photo I am confident I will not be cutting off a nose or such.

For larger circles, a base on many of my layouts, I reach for the EK Curvy Cutter ALL the time. Unfortunatey I never quite got the hang of figuring out how to cut an exact 7 or 8.25"c ircle if precision is needed. It cuts like a hot knife through butter on a glass mat. HIGHLY recommend a glass mat - will never go back to self healing. Worthy investment.

I use all systems often - because nary a one duplicates a circle size and they all have their uses and helpful moments. HTH!
