I've been having fun playing with the newest tool in my tool kit - Circle Scissors. It's a great tool for cutting circles and I love that you can cut rings with it as well.
Circle Scissors Tips: I had to play with it for a little while to get the feel of it. Some tips from other demonstrators were terrific - attach your cardstock to the glass mat using Dotto repositionable adhesive (pg 154), and use a light touch. I found keeping my grip light and going round a few times worked the best - when I gripped the blade holder more firmly I'd move the tool slightly.
I ended up with quite a pile of circles and rings on my craft desk so grabbed a handful to make a scrapbook layout. You can see it here at StampAMemory website. Here's a sneak peek.
