Ok, so I have bought two circle cutters and I hate them both. The first one was called Circle Scissors and it's a 6 inch disc with lots of little holes in it and it came with this stupid pen that has a blade on the end. I can't get the picture to stay, so I end up messing up the pic. The second one I bought was the Memory Makers circle cutter. It came with a blade that you can adjust, but you have hold down the center and try to move the blade. I haven't gotten a perfect circle yet. My solution is to use a cup or plate or something else that is already a circle and it's annoying. So, what do you ladies recommend? I would prefer something I can get at Michaels or Joann Fabrics, but links would be good, too. Thanks, ladies!!

I have the COLUZZLE from Close to my heart and love it. I know you can find them other places. I would look online.

Here is the link to Close to my heart https://amyh.myctmh.com/Retail/Produ...?CatalogID=169.

I have the circle cutter from creative memories. I can see how some people would think its a pain, but I only have to use it for certain things, and it works for me. Any circles I need out of paper, I use my cricut.

I usually draw it with a compass and then cut it with scissors. I'm old school.

I used to use bowls

Then I finally tracked one of these down locally (we don't have a Joanns or Michaels out here). It's fairly easy to use, tho I would recommend a few test runs, and available at most craft stores/sections that carry Martha Stewart scrapbooking stuff. http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...ct_id=10097926

That's what I have and it's great!

I also have a number of the Fiskars cutting shapes that CM didn't have(all before the Cricut )But they came in a kit from Costco a few years ago.

Wanted to add that you do need the Fiskar cutter to use with them. But they are a great price! When my sister started scrapbooking I bought her a number of them.

I use the Fiskar's Circle Cutter http://www.fiskarscrafts.com/tools/t_circle-cutter.aspx. I find the paper/pics sometimes try to shift on me so I tape them down and then use the circle cutter.
