New Cardstock!

We have been in the process of upgrading our cardstock wall. We have discontinued carrying American Crafts cardstock and replaced it with a new line of cardstock from My Minds Eye called My Colors. We have put it to the tested and found it to be a much better stock than the previous. If you loved Bazzill cardstock from years ago, you will love this stock as well!

My Colors offers a variety of options. We are currently stocking the Canvas, Heavy Weight and Classic. The canvas and classic stocks are 80lb and the heavy weight is 100lb.

The change over for the 12x12 stock is complete. Watch for updates on the 8.5x11!

All the discontinued stock is available in baker's dozen preset packs for a fantastic price.
