Hello fellow scrappers! I currently have this Fiskars circle tool and I hate it. Pretty much it's the worst at cutting circles, and that's its only job!! So, what circle cutter would you recommend? I have a baby Cricut, so I can use that to cut circles up to 5.5 inches, but lately I've been needing 8 inch or bigger and I'm tired of using the Fiskars. It's just a LOT of work to cut a circle. Any suggestions would be great and thank you for taking some time to help me out.

I'm not just saying this as a consultant, Ashley, but because Creating Keepsakes gives us an award for it just about every year: The Creative Memories Custom Cutting System.

I agree! I think the Creative Memories Custom Cutting System is easy to use and gives you so many sizes of circles to choose from. Not to mention they have other shapes as well, and keep coming out with more. My fave!

The Creative Memories is also my fave, especially since they added the large circle template.

The EK Success circle cutter is a close second, but I definitely prefer the CM circle cutter.

I don't have a recommendation for one but I do have one to avoid... The We R memory Keepers magnetic mat I purchased came with a circle cutter and it is garbage. They made it look so easy on HSN but it is just awful. I love the mat and the rulers that came with it but the circle cutter sits in a drawer.

My fav is a different type of Fiskars circle cutter....the Ultra Shape X-press.

another vote for Creative Memories circle cutter. The only fault I can find with it is that you can't adjust it to cut many different sizes. But, if you want a good stable cutter - CM is the way to go.
I also have the We R Memory Keepers magnetic mat and circle cutter and while I like how I can cut any size, it's really not user friendly! I end up moving my lines all the time and end up with uneven circles. With CM it's virtually fool proof.

Half the time I can't even be bothered to use my expression for circles. I use plates Slap them on my cutting mat and go around with my craft knife and done!

They aren't perfect all the time, but I distress the edges and you can't tell

Agh, yeah, I had an oval cutter similar to that Fiskars thing and I hated it. I like the EK Success Curvy Cutter system.

I have to agree with the CM circle cutting system too. I also bought the "Curvy Cutter" but I have problems using it and I am not very happy with it.

I too have the CM circle cutter system and like it pretty well. Have to look into the larger circle template though.

Well, while I LIKE the CM system, I recently bought the new Martha Stewart LARGE circle system and I like it much better. It will cut almost any size circle in 1/8" increments. And it's very easy to use.
