You could always buy the 12x12 and cut it to size, then use the left-over strips to mat photos that you're putting on solid paper, or make strips as accent pieces on solid layouts. Those left-over pieces would also make great cards if you are into those.

No, I totally agree. I am making my Genealogy Books in 8.5x11. I did find a 8.5 x 11 pad I love at HL. It's The Paper Studio brand called Poetic Postage. I got two of those. It's awesome to just pick the paper and tear it out and not have to cut it and it is also beautifully embossed. I also buy a lot of 8.5x11 cardstock so I don't have to cut before I use it in my Grand Calibur to cut my dies. I would love to find some more designs like Poetic Postage but most of that size is primary colors, graphic designs, etc. Not what I use. M's does have a set of Kraft paper prints I like.

I've found a bunch of 8.5 x 11 PP Packs at Michaels, HL, and Jo's. Even though I prefer 12 x 12 papers, I got some because I really liked the papers. DCWV, Paper Studio, and Paper House have been the ones I've been seeing lately.

I think it used to be more common. More scrappers use 12x12, so manufacturers have likely cut back on producing the smaller size. Simple supply and demand.

As mentioned above, CUT IT!
Of course, there's 6x6 and 8x8 paper available.

Hot off the Press/Paper Wishes still carries a selection of 8 1/2 x 11 patterned paper.
