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 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!
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.

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.
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.
Wow - thanks for all the recommendations!! I'll have to look into each one and see what I like best. I have used plates too, but I sometimes like to cut rings instead of solid circles, so I want something that will help me with that too.
I'm trying to convince DH that I NEED an Expression! They're just super pricey. I do have a birthday coming up, though!
The great posters here clued me in that Walmart had them last week for $175 in pretty colors! Even came with 2 carts. Snagged one, delivered, with a large mat & spatula for $195 as a gift.
Somebody's gonna' be one happy Birthday Girl, hooray!
I have the Cutter Bee and I really like it. I will have to agree with whoever suggested a glass cutting mat. It is an absolute necessity. There's also a really nice one by Tonic Studios that I've used and liked. And, of course, the 2 MS cutters. (All of which work best with a glass mat) Good luck...
