Going in Circles!

Using circles in handmade cards and paper craft projects can create an impressive effect.  Stampin' Up! has lots of punches and Big Shot dies for creating both plain and scalloped circles.  But sometimes none of them is the right size for the image or mat I want!  And when I try to cut one with scissors, I'm hopelessly inept!

Circle Scissors Plus If this ever happens to you, then I have to show you one of my favorite tools:  The Circle Scissor Plus!

With this versatile tool, you can easily cut circles from 1" to 6" diameter, and every size in between!  It comes with both a cutting handle and a drawing handle.

The Circle Scissor Plus must be used with a Glass Mat, also available from Stampin' Up!  You can purchase replacement blades in packs of 3, although the blades are so sharp that they seem to last forever!

 

Let me show you some recent projects I made using the Circle Scissor Plus.  This first one uses the Just Believe stamp set, and I like how the layering really shows off the image.

Here is a handmade Christmas card I showed you recently.  The Circle Scissor Plus was the only way I could get the right sized circles for the star-shaped words from The Sounding Joy.

I use mats with almost every element in my handmade cards.  They help give definition and dimension to my layers, and give a very finished look to papercraft projects.  With the Circle Scissor Plus I'm not limited to only a few sizes.  This is one tool that is a must in my studio!  Let me know if you need me to make a video to show you how easy it is to use this tool!

If you're tired of being limited in the size circles you can cut, then it is time to buy the perfect tool for the job!  CLICK HERE to go to my online Stampin' Up! Store!

Happy Stamping!
