Does anyone know if Two Peas will be offering the 3X4 We R Memory Keepers punch that is coming next month? I really want to get it as soon as I can, before it sells out. I have so much pretty patterned paper I have collected, and am doing to use it in my Project Life albums!

Think about all the gorgeous paper we all buy here, and how we can use it all up, then buy more! My husband thinks I'm a nut!

I'm excited for that one too. It's not challenging to cut the paper to size with a cutter and round the corners but that punch looks nifty!

I googled it too and it would be great if I needed a 3x4 punch and I didn't have a diecut machine. I was wondering if the waffer thin dies (Spellbinders/QK) actually had a rectangle that is that size?

That would most likely work just as well too?

It'd be a welcome change to tracing a PL card, cutting it out by hand, and using a corner punch, which is what I do now. Pretty time consuming, honestly!

Glad they made it see through, too, so we can line it up on the 12x12 journal card sheets. Smart.

There is a die from My Favorite Things. Not sure if I can link it. It cuts just under the 3x4 so that it can fit in the BH pockets. I wonder if the punch will do that? 3x4 is too big for some of the BH pockets. It's also cheaper! The punch is handy if you want to see where you are cutting....like a photo I guess.

I am actually waiting to begin my Project Life stuff until this punch comes out . . . WRMK said it would come out in June, but now they say July . . . I can hardly wait to get started! It's going to make the entire project so much easier with less cutting and more putting pictures in albums!!!

Me too. Was hoping to get it before my husband & I leave for our vacation in July to Scotland. Wanted to punch dozens of cards before our trip so I can stuff them in my hand bag to work on a mini album. I can't sleep on a plane!

I just wanted to tell my story.. (so not everyone is as disappointed as me)

I had set my eyes on the WRMK's 3 x 4 punch since January 2013. I was ecstatic. I enjoy Project Life but enjoy making my own cards. It sounded like this would be my go to gadget when I was using project life. The dream was short lived once I began using the punch. I unboxed the punch and discovered it was filthy - with mud and grease. The clear top of the punch was also filthy with some kind of plastic scratches and marks. It was in terrible condition. I was disappointed. And I was surprised this punch would pass any quality control inspection. (Did I mention I am a Senior Quality Assurance Engineer for a major company?)
But I decided that I would try it.. Even though it was in obvious disrepair. I had a picture from our honeymoon in the Bahamas. It was a regular 4 x 6 print from Walgreen's. Nothing fancy. Not heavy weighted. It was a regular photo print. I have attached pictures of the back of the photo so you can see - nothing fancy. My first mistake was that this is the only copy I have of this picture. Why I used it.. I guess I will never know but fail. I read the directions - opened the magnetic top and stuck the picture in. Closed the magnetic top and heard the sound of latching. According to the directions, I had done everything right. I set it on a solid wood surface and pressed down. I pressed down harder and even though I would consider myself a fit 20 something woman, it took me all my strength and nothing happened. The punch had jammed. The punch jammed! It jammed on my first attempt with regular, nothing fancy photo prints! I was disappointed. I had waited for this punch and it jammed. The worst part came when I tried to remove the magnetic top and it wouldn't "unlatch". And when it did, it was so loud that my husband ran up the stairs thinking something terrible had happened. It was so loud and the quality was so poor. My single print was barely cut. The punch failed. It failed miserably. The photo was ruined. My husband and I were both shocked at how terrible this punch did. (I am buy lots of WRMK things from page protectors, albums, I have many super 8 punches, paper trimmers, cropadiles, corner rounders and even the new envelope board.)
This punch was not cheap - it was $29.99. And on top of that, I paid $10.07 for shipping. My total order was $40.06. My question is what can I do? If this punch is flawed as I have read from others, I would like it replaced but as many others have said, I want one that doesn’t jam. I’d really like to support WRMK and keep them as my favorite scrapbook company but right now, I am $40 in the hole with a filthy, poor quality punch that won’t even punch through photos. Did I mention I no longer have one of my favorite honeymoon pictures as well?

Sarah - is this a letter to WRMK CS? I would for sure send it to them if not. I would think that what you have is not a finished product or was damaged in factory somehow. Sorry that you had such bad luck with it.
