So, it looks as if the Project Life pics are going to need the corners rounded.

Do you have a corner rounder that works with it? And, can you fill us in?

I have a CM one that is too big. And, I'm thinking, an EK Success one (yellow) that is too small.

I have the pink EK success one. And I've been able to round photos to fit in those baseball card sleeves. Maybe that works???

There are 2 different brands that give you a choice of two different choices of sizing for the actual corners:

Fiskars has a small blue one that offers a small & large corner choice

WRMK Corner Chomper also has the same one-kinda pricy though-$24.99

Hobby Lobby sells 2 corner rounders separately. You can tell which size it is by the letter at the top of the packaging L-(black large) or S- (pink-small)

I hope this helps!

Thank you. I'll look into your suggestions.

All the kit contents are rounded. So, anything on the reverse page will show if not rounded.

I've been using the 1/4" side of the Corner Chomper and this looks like it matches the cards that come with the kit perfectly.

I realized I have to cut my smaller photos smaller than 4 x 3" in order to fit into the center row of pockets.
My strategy is to try to match my smaller photos to the dimensions of the smaller cards. That way, nothing will show through to on flip side of the page.

The Stampin' Up corner rounder will work. I'm just leaving my photos unrounded, and I think it looks fine.

I about ruined an old corner rounder doing Project 365, then ended up getting the WRMK Corner Chomper. If you can find one someplace that you can use a coupon, get it! You can stack your photos and round corners on a week's worth at a time. It is a lot easier on your hands and since you can cut a bunch of photo corners at once, it is a huge time saver for anyone who prints photos every other week.

Have fun with it. You'll love the finished product!

I absolutely LOVE my Corner Chomper by WRMK!!! I have not found anything that it will not cut through yet and it has the option of the two sizes. ITA that you should use a coupon b/c the regular price of about $25 is a bit much IMHO.

If you are not able to get a new punch, you may consider just re-punching the corners of the cards that came with your kit. Not sure if this will work as I did not get the kit, but thought I would mention that as an option...HTH!!!



Yep...I pin!!!

That's good to know.

I did 365 last year. And, I measured one of the journalling cards to get exact dimensions for my extra picture.

That darn perfectionism gets the better of me sometime.

Thank you.

Well, I was assembling the first page of Project Life. Lo and behold, I had a picture behind the quote card. The white against the red stood out horribly to me. So, I tried both of my corner rounders & neither work.

I just can't leave the pictures unrounded, as it would drive me bonkers.

I am also in the camp of it looks just fine without being rounded. I am also kind of a lazy scrapper. I just want to keep it simple with this kit.

Never thought of that. I'll have to see if that will work.

Maybe I am missing something, but my old, original Creative Memories corner rounder is working just fine!
