    www.staples.com (and I guess the store as well) sells acid-free cardstock by Hammermill. It's $9.45 for a pack of 125 in assorted colors (looks like primaries or pastels). The size is 8 1/2 x 11 only, but you could use it for matting, punching, or paper piecing.

    Just thought I'd share.

    Thanks for the heads up. We have a fairly new Staples near by so I'll check it out soon.

    Both of those are excellent ideas and resources. Those plain card stock purchases for matting, etc can add up!

    Thanks!

    I like to stock up on the rainbow package of 12 x 12 cardstock at WalMart too. It has 50 pages, I think, and you get 2 of each color. There's quite an assortment of brights and neutrals in the pack.

    Ok, as much as I try to avoid my local Wal-Mart (you'd have to live here to understand :rolleyes: ) it sounds like a trip there may be in order this weekend. Who can ignore the discontinued cheap cheap cheap appeal! :p

    you are right walmart for scrapbooking Boring! but the prices are good. I got 3 paper punches for 5.50 real sweet birthday. 4 sheets of letters for 1.75 paper was 1.00 for 20 sheets gel pens for 3.00 Our Michaels is remodeling but the scissor org. was 11.50 and half price of that. Keep an eye at your stores for that deal I bet it is discontinued

    My Staples also had some cutter things on clearance - the 12" Fiskers paper trimmer for ~$8, and a 6" personal trimmer (like CM sells but a different brand) for $7 or so. Not much better than a 50% off coupon, but no coupon required! This was in the section by the scissors.
