I have misplaced my circle cutter set somewhere and now I need to buy a new set. Does anybody have a favorite?

My fav is the Fiskars Ultra ShapeXpress. As a bonus, you can buy other fun templates. Some people do not like this cutter, but I love it. The trick is to always place the template with the Fiskars name facing up, and to hold the cutting tool like you would hold a computer mouse.

I have a Cutter Bee Curvy Cutter and 3 templates, but I can never get it to come out right, so lately I've mostly just been using my Cricut.

No one's mentioned the Nesties yet, I use these and I have a couple of punches as well. If I needed a larger circle (which I don't think I ever have yet) I'd use my Gazelle die-cutter.

I've used a ton of different ones that didn't really work well for me, and the Cutter Bee which works great. I gave them all up when I found the Circle Scissor Pro. It's supposed to be used in conjunction with a glass mat but I've been able to use a regular mat when I need a quick cut. It cuts in 1/16" increments; replacement blades fit into the handle, which you can clip on to the side of the cutter so everything is always together.

I have the Sizzix Framelits to use in my BigShot, ovals and circles. I like these better than the Spellbinders because the inner edge is exactly where you cut, so you can place them perfectly. I also use the Creative Memories circles and ovals, but they are not as precise. I loved the ProvoCraft Coluzzles....wish they had not quit making those.

I have the CM circle cutting system - but my favorite is the WeRMemory Keepers Circle Cutter! Love it and it's so easy. Especially since it will cut up to 12 inches!!!

I absolutely love the CM circle cutters when I need one that I dont have the right die/punch for.
