Is there a die to cut a rectangle that fits the Project Life pockets?

I know I can cut the shapes with my Cameo. But it would be easy to have a die to run through on small pieces of scrap paper and I like the finished edge that dies give. Plus, it would be nice to have the embossed edge like those that can be done with Spellbinders.

I've been hoping that there will be a punch (with rounded corners!), but a die would be great too! I hope someone knows of one!

I bet one of these rectangles would work.

That nestie is about the right width, but the wrong length. It did work okay, but to turn a 4X6 photo and then place the die, my 4X6 hangs off. It bends one side and shifts the photo. If you had a larger die cutter than the cuttlebug, it would help. A normal rectangle is about 1/16" shorter than the precut journaling cards that go with the set.

I tried to make one for my SCAL and am not sure it's any easier than just cutting with a template and then rounding corners with my corner rounder (Exacto sells a black and magenta colored one at our Wal*Mart that matches).

I do wish there was a die for cutting out photos quickly, though. In my opinion, it would help if it were clear somehow, so that you could accurately cut a photo with a white border around it (Like when you print using the free PhotoSheet program, which we all love).

Here's a link to the svg files I created initially. I've not cut with them in a while, but used them to cut my Ali Edwards photo brush frames as seen here for my Memory Keepers Page Inserts. Mess with them and see if they help if you like:

Forward this request to Becky Higgins. I would think she could partner with a die company very easily.
