Cardstock~Tuesday Tips

Happy Tuesday. Today’s tip is 8-1/2 x 11 cardstock….

My favorite basic white card stock is by Georgia Pacific (found at Walmart). It’s great for the base of cards, making flowers and cutting with your Cricut….

For Copic coloring I prefer Neenah Cardstock….rich and creamy

For colored cardstock I’m Paper Trey Ink all the way. The quality is amazing and I love the color selection as well as being able to order 12 sheets for $3 or 24 for $5. They also have matching ribbon ;0)

When I went to Ikea a few weeks ago I picked up these (2/$3.99) magazine files.

Inside the magazine files, I use file folders from Michael’s dollar spot to separate my cardstock by color. When I first started I was writing the name of the company/color on the folder, but found that if I just cut a slit in the plastic that they come in I can just slide my cardstock out and keep the label inside the original package. This way I don’t have to relabel the files if I decided not to reorder that same color.

I keep my scraps right in front of the original package, so I reach for those first 🙂

Stay Tuned next week for 12×12 cardstock and pattern paper 🙂
