A big thanks to Lifestyle Crafts for sponsoring this post, by providing supplies for the project. ?

A few years ago I switched my family scrapbooks from primarily 12×;12 pages to pocket scrapbook pages. This ?is usually referred a Project Life album. ?I make one album a year for our family, highlighting both big events and everyday life from our year. I also love to make mini albums for specific events like vacations.

Even though I love this system I’;ve don’;t always love ?figuring out how to chop my photos to the right size. ?Most all pocket page protectors have spots for both 4”; x 6”; photos and 3”; x 4”; photos. ?The 4×;6 are easy to fill but the 3×;4 not as much.

I know there are ways to print your photos out to 3×;4outdoor cushion covers diy, ?but I’;m not really good at keeping track of what I want printed 4×;6 and what I want 3×;4. ?So I usually just trim down my photos, then round the corners.

This month I decided to try out the We R Memory Keepers 3×;4 card punch. I combined the punch with items from the Harvest Albums Made Easy kit to scrapbook a day we spent at Shaker Village last fall.?

Using the punch is a breeze…; I’;m totally hooked now. Not only does it crop your photo down to 3×;4 it rounds the corners for you too!

It has a magnetic top. To use it, simply take off the top and place your photo on ?the punch.

Replace the magnetic top, you can see through the clear window where the photo will be cropped.

Once you’;ve got your photo where you want it, simply push down to punch out your photo. I found that it punched out easily. I would say I stood up to push on the punch about half of the time, the rest of the time it punched simply at my desk.

The magnet keeps the photo from shifting while you’;re punching, so you get a clean result!

I then simply slipped the photos and the cards into the page protector. The whole process took less than half an hour!! Sometimes I love taking lots of time and creatively designing each element of a page, but sometimes I just want it done quick! ?The balance of the two keeps me a happy scrapbooker!

Here are a few more shots of the pages:

Here’s a note from Gail Garber, quilter, author, teacher, and BERNINA National Artisan:

Ummm, is it really the last day of 2014? I truly cannot believe it. WHEW! What a year it has been. I started my “little” blog at the end of October, 2013, mostly as a way to chronicle our home renovations. I thought it would be read by friends, family and few random people out in cyberspace. And then I started writing, and photographing, and POSTING. I was addicted. I had never really stopped to think before that blogging allows me to combine some of my absolute favorite things: writing, photography and DIY/crafting. I wish I had started blogging sooner. It is so cliche to say it, but blogging truly does feed my creative soul. It makes me feel alive. And even though it takes a tremendous amount of time and dedication {more than I could have ever imagined}, I genuinely love every minute of it and it never feels like “work.”
