circle cutters and other shapes for pictures

hey ladies i thought i would post on here and see if u have any recommendations for the cutters/punches/templates that you use to cut your pictures into different shapes like circles and ovals etc.

i'm looking to buy these possibly this weekend but wanted to see what recommendations u may have as to good quality but not expensive and above all do not tear the pictures.

thanks so much in advance ladies.

This is what my mom uses and she loves it. I can't find the one I use at the moment so I don't know what brand it is Sad

I don't cut my pictures into shapes, I will trim them with my paper cutter if I want to cut them. I have heard good things about the Creative Memories circle cutters.

I use a cutter that's like this one... not this brand but similar

I have some stencils that I bought to go with it. Will look at the brand later.

I don't have any, but my friend swears by cm cutters.

I used to use a Fiskars set that I think I got at AC Moore (orange plastic stencily-looking things) - HATED it!!! I had a hard time holding them still enough; they always slid around and I would end up with a little jagged piece on one part of the circle/oval. I don't remember the blade making a nice cut, either.

Now I use the creative memories set. LOVE it!!!! Smile It makes a very smooth cut, and after getting it down with a few practice cuts on scrap paper, I don't think I have ever messed up when cutting a picture! It really works great!
