I am looking for a good circle cutter, well I will start off with circles but I have learned that if you LOVE a product you tend to buy the whole collection, so I am sure I will purchase the other shape templates . I know they can be fairly pricey so I wanted to know what you lovely ladies recommend. Thanks for your help!!

I either use my Cricut or the CM system.

I use my CM system. It rocks, especially now that they're adding jumbo shapes...

I just started using my new Creative memories system. Super easy to use and I got every shape I could lay my hands on and they are all simple to use.


They are pretty much idiot proof....I know I could use my cricut but the system is so easy and I got the large circle, wavy square and oval which are larger than my create will cut so I love them.

I have the CM - but I really like the WeRMemory keepers circle cutter! It works on a magnetic mat and can make circles up to 12". LOVE IT!!!!

Put another tally mark next to the Creative Memories circle cutting system for me. It rocks!

I like the Martha Stewart one...but that's because it's cheaper and I'm cheap. It works well enough for me.

I have Spellbinders and the Martha circle cutter for up to six inches. After that I have a plastic template from OTC or I just grab a dish or bowl and trace it. I like circles a lot, but I've never felt the need for more tools to cut them.

I vote for CM system. Anything that is "fool-proof" gets a vote from this fool. LOL!

Another vote for CM here. I have had mine for about 10 years now, and I love them. The only thing I have had to do is replace the blades and mat from using them so much.

I have an old one by EK Success and I hate it. So that's an anti-vote!

No. Mine is a Circle Scissor. Maybe the problem is operator error, but I just can't get it to work consistently well.

My favorite ever are the plates I bought at goodwill. For $2 I got 4 different sized plates that I use to cut circles, but that's just because I haven't gotten around to buying something different! But when you're in a pinch your kitchen has many fun things to use for circles!

CM is awesome for fool proof circles. I don't have the larger set though so I don't know how large they go to?

For large circles I use the We R Memory Keepers system. It takes some practice to get the circle perfect - try on scrap paper first. I love how precise you can make the circles - it's priceless.

I have several, including the magnetic one. But I absolutely LOVE the new larger-size Martha Stewart one. It cuts up to 11" in diameter circles in 1/8" increments. Very easy to use. I'm not especially a Martha fan, but she hit it out of the ballpark with this one. $25 at Michaels, so use a coupon.
