Ok, this had me chuckling. I love LOVE the Circle Scissor! Which one do you have? I love the Circle Scissor Pro--I think it's the basic one and the Plus is more deluxe?

Anyhoo, did you get a cutting MAT or a GLASS mat to use with it? If you're using a regular cutting mat with it, that is one thing that will cause a lot of grief. You need a glass mat with that tool.

I also figured out if I sprayed it with a light coating of temporary/removable spray adhesive, like Krylon, that holds the paper in place completely on the mat so it doesn't shift at all, and then I can cut circles like nobody's business!

I use a little metal spatula like the accessory one that Making Memories or Cricut makes for their electronic cutters to lift the paper up from the glass mat and it works GREAT!
