I am on the hunt for 12×12 Bazzill cardstock to DIY the pocketfold envelopes for our invites.
My most recent trips to Michael’s during the ‘2 for $1’ sale were fruitless…someone else is just beating me to my color. At one store there was 1 lonely sheet, at another there were none :/ [AND – I locked my keys in my car on that trip – boo.]
Needless to say, this is quite frustrating and now I’m considering a bulk purchase off the internet. Has anyone ordered products from scrapbook.com? They are an advertiser here and their prices are the lowest I’ve found so far.
Or maybe you have another recommendation for me? Thanks!

Oh yes, it was a bit of an ordeal, all because I was on a paper hunt 🙂 I’m trying to minimize any further potential hazards by continuing the search from the safety of home!

When I was looking for my paper, I was having the same issues. I finally just had Michaels and/or Joanns; depending on the paper I was trying to get, order me the paper for the sale price. It was much easier that way. And because the paper was a stock item, I didn’t have to pay shipping, so you might want to check back during their sales to see if they will order it for you. I think that would be your best option, so you can get exactly what you want.
EDIT: I just noticed the rest of your post about scrapbook.com. I haven’t ordered from them, but I wanted to let you know that the ads you see on this site on the site of your screen are auto generated. I really don’t think the bee has any affiliation with them. Whenever you see an ad and are considering making a purchase through one of them, make sure you search for reviews before making your purchase. The companies that are advertised pay to have their stores advertised on this site.

@pink.sequins: I have actually purchased all of my paper from Anchor Paper company online. They were awesome to work with as I forgot to purchase rsvp envelopes… I emailed them and they added it to my previous order so I wouldnt have to pay seperate shipping. I purchased enough for 200 invites – pocketfolds, invites, backings, rsvp cards, and enevelopes. I also purchased enough to do all 200 programs and Ceremony fans.
My total paper cost = 160.77…… I will receive my paper products today via fedex (5 day shipping and they shipped it even before my payment cleared).
They were the cheapest bulk supplier I could find. WAY cheaper then cardsandpockets.

@Ms. MonKey: @amnystik: Thanks for this website. I just did a quick calculation and I’m saving myself about $150-$200 using this website instead of the other ones I found online.
