    Do you have a tutorial on how to resize the pictures to fit more than one photo in a pocket and/or to spread a picture out over several pockets?

    Any chance on making a horizontal 6×12 single pocket for landscape photos?

      I use Paint Shop Pro to correct my pictures. Under “file” is “print layout”. Under this you can tell it what size print you want. I use the 4×6 and drag two photo’s into that and print it as one 4×6 photo. You can cut apart the 2 smaller ones or use as one 4×6 and use more pictures that way.

    Thanks Becky for taking the time. Super excited about the corner rounder. Have a great weekend!

  5. Emma in Aus says:

    Love it Becky! Really liked the way you answered about the copy cat products. It would be flattering but being protective of what you created is definitely a feeling that would surface. It can be so hard to control those feelings and i just wanted to say I really loved your answer. Love PL here in Aus too xx

  9. Krista says:

    Excited about the corner rounder! I haven’t really been impressed with any that I have bought/tried…

  10. Annette Kelly says:

    Will you be getting Project life into any stores here in Australia, such as Spotlight which is a large craft store chain or is it just scrapbook stores? Annette.

  11. Suzette says:

    I love the 5-words-or-less responses. I think I will try some 5-words-or-less journaling…or maybe some haiku journaling. My 5 words for tonight: Thanks for being awesome, Becky!

    • Carmel says:

      Love the 5 words or less responses too. Is amazing how much you are able to say with so few words – food for thought! Thansk for answering

  12. Linnea R. says:

    Thanks for answering all these questions, love the “Reader’s Digest” version answers !! Was wondering if you were considering creating a planner geared towards PL users…. I”d love to have a day planner that incorporates ways to keep up with PL. I have used the Erin Condren planner ever since you brought it to our attention. LOVE it !!

  13. Vanessa B. says:

    Corner rounder?! I’m so excited! Does that mean there *might* be a 3×4 punch in the works too????

    And I agree with what others have said about your response to the “copy cat” products. It would have taken me a long time to come with such a mature and respectful response. ;) Yours was just perfect.

    So excited for you and PL. Can’t wait to see what comes next.

  14. I’m super excited about YOUR round corner punch b/c the one I bought from Amazon keeps failing me. Corner fails are no fun!!!!

    I can’t wait to see your post on taking silhouette photos. I really need to get outside my comfort zone and try new things with my photos. I also can’t wait to see if my local stores will be carrying Project Life! I sure hope so. I love seeing things in stores in person rather than online.

  17. […] TIP | Use a 4×6 Project Life card folded in half on your layout to inlude some hidden detail such as mini photos and more journaling. Project Life also include “bi-fold cards” especially for this purpose of including more detail – see Becky Higgin’s blog post about bi-fold cards here>> […]
