Greetings, you all!

Last year I splurged on one of those seemingly cool Martha Stewart Punch-All-Over-The-Page punches. Alas, I discovered it is worthless without some serious solid core cardstock. I've never purchased solid-core before, and am wondering if you all have any recommendations for me. I need something that will stand up to extremely intricate patterns. Any suggestions are tremendously appreciated!

I like Core'dinations. Very nice quality, works well with my Cricut and punches.

Thank you SO MUCH, NMscrapper! That was precisely the kind of endorsement I was hoping to hear! Core'dinations it shall be!

Glad you made reference to your Cricut, too - I also have one but forgot to mention it! I purchased the Paper Lace 2 cartridge last year, and it sounds like Core'dinations is far better suited for that kind of detail than my crummy basement bargain cardstock!

Thanks again! Much appreciated!

I like Americain Crafts paper....works really well in my cricut. Better than Bazzill for sure.

Thanks for this info, you all! Hugely helpful, truly. I've not looked into AC yet, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that Core'dinations is so inexpensive! Joann's has been offering an ongoing sale price: two paper packs for $5! It's only 8.5" x 11" but for $2.50 a pack, you'll hear no complaints from me! Each pack contains about five different shades, so you do have to buy several to get the whole rainbow, but $2.50 is such a killer good deal.

I'm also going to check into AC, and really appreciate the endorsements!
