I've decided that since there's nothing really new for me to get- I'm going to spend my scrapbooking money on cardstock.

first of all- it's amazing. the shipping that is... once i send here- it makes everything twice as expnsive... whice is amzing.- you have to asmit...


now-
I'm looking at the singel bazzil sheets.

i want to get some white, tan, off-white- and black.

Black cardstock- What's the diffrence bwtween all the different black bazzill? I would think that black is black....

White cardstock- which white's do you like? I was thinking about maybe geting the simple pack for 4.95$ for 25 sheets... sound's sheep- but do they look sheep too?

Swatch- I was thinking about geting the swatch so i can order in the fature.... but which swatch to get??

what about the AC cardstpck... does it compare to the bazzill- or does nothing compare to Bazzill?

Oh, and Bazzill has many different textures,,so maybe that's the difference between the black cs??? You might want to decide which texture you like first,,,,,,do you stamp? You might want the smoothies for that,,,,,but lots like the texture on Bazzill's cs HTH

Kitty the Bazzil Basics packs are not textured that's why they are cheaper.

If you like texture get the more expensive Bazzill. I like the linen texture best.

To me AC is ok...not quite as heavy and not as nice a finish as Bazzill.
The swatch is nice to have if you are concerned about matches to particular pps.
Some pp lines (eg Imaginisce and many others) have Bazzill that matches.

A big help is the Scrap by Color feature on this site...If you are looking for a particular color it can show you which shades of cs will work.

Bazzill is the best, IMO, and I love their textures. The swatch books aren't really helpful, I don't think. I used some of my swatch for cardmaking because there wasn't really anything else to do with them. They didn't really help me when it came to orders because some of the colors are discontinued.

i got the "cheap" bazzill. its the same stuff as the regular bazzill just no texture. its cool because it stamps better and is easier to write on .. i use it for background and journaling so im very very happy with it.

haven't tried much of the other stuff. i did get some wRmk cardstock to go with one other their paper packs. its doesn't match exactly but it does go with the paper so i don't have to think much when im using.
