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.

I use my SU circle cutter (actually I think cutterbee makes it) or 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 found my CM circles! Yippee! They were in the bottome of my dd old scrapbooking cart. (She doesn't scrap anymore and gave me her cart to store paper) They only make circles to a certain size. There is a lo that I would like to do, where I will need a larger circle. I am thinking of using a dinner plate to cut that circle.

I also love my CM circle cutters, especially the jumbo 12" one ... it is AWESOME ... I think it's one of the best products CM makes .... very easy to use and great for larger circles (which I adore)

I think I have them all! I tried and tried to find one I really liked. My favorite would be the largest Martha Stewart one, primarily because it will cut a full sheet-size circle, where some of the others don't cut circles that big.

I just used the Martha Stewart large circle cutter, referenced above. Nice clean 12" circle. I have the fiskars ultrashape express but am not in love, the edges are not always clean. Am now trying the creative memories system.

I have looked at the MS circle cutters and I was confused by how it is used. It's seems like it has little holes in it. I need to investigate more on this product, because I have heard many people like using them.

I edited my prior list to include the pic of the MS large circle cutter, I have not used the smaller, regular sized one yet. Oh btw, I've seen it on sale in Js n Ms.

LOVE the CM cutting system. I have three circle cutters and the CM one is the easiest one I've ever tried.

I use the creative memories circle cutting system, nesties with the grand calibur, cricut and the Friskers system. I use them all, but my go to one has to be the Creative Memories set.

I use the one by Creative Memories, have tried some others and just didn't like them as much and most are very hard to use. the one by CM is very easy and gives you a lot of options for different sizes.

I'm a fan of the Martha Stewart Circle Cutter.

Twist is, you need some removable adhesive and a glass mat to really make it reliable. Some people don't like this cutter.

I also use my Silhouette Cameo to cut circles

I'm another fan of the CM cutting system! I've got most of the sizes they offer, except for the jumbo circle, and that's currently on my wishlist.

Another vote for the CM cutting system here. I have had most of them for well over 10 years, and I still use them all of the time. They come with guides that are color coded with the color of the blade needed to achieve that size cut so you never have to guess which blade to use when cutting your shape.

I have the cutterbee ones. Both the small one and the set of two large ones and I used to hate them, but the trick is to use a glass mat. You HAVE to use the glass mat or they just won't work. Now I love them.
