Hi Ladies,
I am looking to stock up on some bazzil cardstock and I've noticed on various sites that there are several textures available. Some of the images are difficult to make out. For you bazzil fans-which texture do you prefer? tia!

Burlap - it's the orginal fiber-squares looking texture.

I like 'em all. Sorry, not much help. The only one I'm not completely sold on is the straight line texture (can't remember the name of it).

I don't like the orange peel. other than that I am an equal opportunity bazzil hoarder.

Ditto- don't care for orange peel.
I prefer the Smoothies for stamping. The stamp images are clearer than on the textures.

I like the burlap and grasscloth.

I love their bling line but it's very thick and hard to adhere to or cut with the cricut.

I don't care for the bling line at all. But otherwise, have at it! The smooth texture one is really great for some projects, esp stamping or journaling, but the other types are heavier weight (or so it seams to me).

The stuff they sell at Mike's and JoAnns is a lower quality Bazzil.

I think the issue is the weight of the cardstock. Bazzill makes different thicknesses.
The heavier cardstocks, the more textured and the glazed, are 80 lbs. Some of the smoother ones are a lighter weight, 65# or 70#, thus they feel "cheaper". It's still Bazzill, it just behaves differently in your Cricut or trimmer.
