WRMK has a 3x4 punch coming out. Also MFT sells a 3x4 die. There's a regular one and one that has a notebook edge. I know some people use their paper trimmer or craft knife and cut down paper themselves.

WRMK - We R Memory Keepers -.they are coming out with a 3x4 punch, my only complaint about it is that the price point is around $31. Personally, I just cut my own using my paper trimmer.

Since it is all rectangles I just use my paper trimmer. It's an easy job for sitting in front of the TV!

I too am using up my stash (although I have purchased a few products that I just couldn't resist ). I just use my paper trimmer also. I am having so much fun using up my embellishments making journaling cards out of my stash.

all you 'need' is a corner rounder and a paper trimmer

I went through my stash and chose papers that I wanted to use. I sat in front of the tv one evening while we were watching a movie and cut them into 4x6 sheets. Easy!!!! I sorted them by color and put them in a Sterilite lidded bin. Yes, I have bought kits and have enough to last me for years.... but I wanted to use my stash and I like having a mix ready at my disposal. Just use a trimmer and slice away!!!

"Saw the Project Life albums on HSN for the first time. I had heard about them, but didn't understand what exactly they were until yesterday. Since then, I've searched and read a lot of the Project Life past threads here, and I'm intrigued. I'm thinking this would be a good fit to help get me caught up in my scrapbooking.

Having said that, I have a whole bunch of scrapbooking supplies from the old school methods I've been used to over the past 15 yrs or so.

The one main question I have is this... is there a die out there that will die cut the scrapbooking papers I currently have (collected!) into the correct sizes to fit in the pockets of the page protectors? I don't have a cameo, cricut or fancy cutters- I'm old school with the original quickut and sizzix machine. Is there any hope for me or am I doomed to either choosing to purchase a cutting machine, or hand cutting the papers to the right sizes?

Thank you in advance for your help!"

There is a punch!
I'm pretty sure I saw it on the WRMK website
It's 3x4 with rounded corners

I forgot up mention, with the right trimmer you can cut a stack of papers all at once

I can't cut a big stack of 12x12 papers into 4x6 and 3x4 pieces in about 2 minutes

You don't actually need to round the corners.

I cut papers with a trimmer and call it good. I thought it would bother me to mix those in with stuff that's already rounded, but it doesn't.

Paper trimmer is all. Cut 4x6, 6x4 and 3x4 and 4x3 depending on the protectors you purchase. You don't need a fancy die cutting device. Just a paper trimmer.

I just use a trimmer too. Gives you lots of flexibility without buying anything new.

I bought The Crafter's Workshop dies, one is a 3x4 and the other is 4x6 with rounded corners. My Creative Time has a 3x4 die with stitched edges. The WRMK punch coming out may work better as you can see through the top so you can line up what you are cutting. But I am loving the dies, I use up scraps and run them through my Big Shot.
