    Default ? about paper and cardstock

    The PP had me curious now too. I only have cardstock pages...so if I use two colors on one page, it's two pages of cardstock I'm using. I HATE cutting that stuff, but do it cause I want more than one color. The pieces of pattern paper I use here and there is either construction paper I stole from Austin, or it comes from a little scrapbooking calendar I got as a gift one year. I just cut what I need. So can you tell me where you all get your cardstock and your patterned paper? I am loving all the different paper and I don't have any. TIA

    I usually buy the scrap stacks or mat stacks that are a HUGE book (sort of) of several different patterns. I buy them when they are on sale (since they are usually expensive)...they last FOREVER!

    ETA: Like this http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog.j...DID=xprd810900
    they come in several sizes...12x12, 8x8, 4x6 or 5x7 not sure

    do you have a Michael's nearby? or even walmart I think has some pattern paper. I got a big pad...i mean HUGE pad full of 12x12 patterned paper at Michael's when I was in the states It was about $15-$20 dollars. Pretty cheap if you ask me I am sure you can get some pattern paper in stacks for cheap then just buying them individually.

    yes, I would go to your local Walmart Carrie and get a patterned paper stack. Or if you get a chance to go to a Hobby Lobby, AC Moore, Michael's, etc. you can pick individual sheets of your choice. But most of my paper has been from one GIANT pack I got 2 years ago at COSTCO and am still using. You're right, you probably don't want to waste as much of your cardstock like that if you don't have to.

    Walmart huh? Cause I looked just this weekend in the SB aisle and didn't see any. Am I looking in the wrong place? Also the sheet protectors, do yall get those from Walmart too? I buy ones that come with white paper in it, that I don't need and they are like 5.00 for only 10 of them at Walmart..but maybe I'm just looking in the wrong place for all this stuff. Thanks guys!

    I go to Joann.com and wait until they have a 40% off coupon or a half off sale. You can get a paper pack for $9.99. You get 3 of each design in the pack and there are hundreds of sheets of paper. You get 180-300 pages depending on the pack, for normal, thin patterned paper. Patterned cardstock you only get about 60 sheets, but it's still worth it.

    However, I have SOOOO much paper, because you get so much paper from it. I get my money's worth only using what I like, but I generally try to buy a pack on sale and then split it with my two friends. We spend about $3 each and get 60-100 sheets of paper. However, I have packs that I haven't always done this with.

    I would be more then willing to mail you a bunch of papers. I use some of it for crafts with the kids, but still the pile doesn't seem to shrink. There is so much that is nice, but I'm just not using as it's not my style, etc.

    they should be laying down flat in the scrapbooking aisle. If you can't find them, ask an associate to show you where they are.
