I have the shape cutter and don't waste your money its a pain in the but. I am in Canada so the postage likely wouldn't make it worth your while but don't get it.

An easy cheap way to cut large circles is the "dinner plate system". Take your dinner plates, cut around them, and, viola, perfect circle.

If you want it for circles (don't have them) get the CM system. You could try craigs list for a used set. You will like that much better than the fiskars system.

Thanks, Also, would you know the best option to making your own phrases? I am fairly new to this so I am not quite sure.

You could try printing stuff out from the computer or using stamps. Since you are starting out I would suggest you start small and don't buy everything you see. I got the fiskars system when I started and a bucn of stuff that I just handed over to my 3 yr old for crafts. When you really get into the hobby then you will know what you really like and don't and what is worth investing in. Remember try to find some deals on craigs list but use coupons and watch for sales. Birthdays and christmas are great ways to get a spluge without feeling guilty.

If you want to make phrases and things, try doing it on your computer and printer. You can print the phrase and then color, hand cut, whatever.

You could also try online for a die cut machine, people sell them all the time. I have a cuttlebug and silhouette and love them both.

I actually love my Fiskars ultra shape express. There are just 3 simple rules to get it working correctly:

1. Place the template with Fiskar's name right-side up.

2. Hold the shapecutter like a computer mouse.

3. Either avoid heavy cardstock, or cut over it twice.

I also have the Creative Memories set, but no longer use it. For me, it's too difficult to cut exactly where I want it to cut. With Fiskars, simply lay down the template and what you see is what you will cut.

Is the Fiskars Ultra ShapeXpress the same thing? I got one as a gift (with no shapes) but I've never used it because I have 2 die cutters. I'd be happy to mail it to you for the cost of postage. It's still in its packaging.

I have a barely used Slice I'd be willing to part with for 50 to 75 bucks. Let me know.

I have these and they are so easy to use - just make sure your blade is deep enought to cut through your pp. That was my problem at first

I have the Fiskars shape cutter and I love it. I have around 25 templates. I have since bought a cricut expression, but I still use my fiskars shape cutter.

Fiskars shape cutter is a love it or hate it item it seems I LOVE LOVE LOVE mine. And never have had the complaints and problems it seems that others have.


It takes patience, but once you get the hang of it you are good.

I have a couple of the plastic shape templates that I don't use anymore... I will go through them and see what I have and post later.
