What is your favorite cardstock for scrapping and using in the cameo? I have been using just cardstock from Hobby Lobby but I know there has to be better out there than that.

I use Bazzill (sp?), American Crafts, and Core'dinations, depending on the colors/finish I want. That's for general scrapping.
I have a Cameo, but I seem to cut patterned paper mostly, and the few cardstock sheets I've tried have either torn or not cut all the way through (and they were older scraps, so not sure what brands). I'll be watching this thread for Cameo cs recommendations!

I have a bunch of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock but hardly any 12x12 so I will be watching this closely! I think I would like white and grey with a little texture as well as Kraft - does anyone but these in bulk?

If you are cutting larger, non-intricate designs, either Bazzill or American Crafts is ok.
If you want to cut smaller, more delicate shapes, the American Crafts definitely gives a cleaner cut. The fibers in the Bazzill don't seem to be pressed together as densely.

Where does everyone buy American crafts cardstock so I can give it a try?

I don't have a cameo but do have a cricut and I love Bazzill for both scrappin' and using in the cricut.

If its available I try to only use American Crafts with my Cameo. Sometimes I have to make an exception and use something else, in which case I try to find untextured card stock. For any other paper crafting I use whatever works! I love Bazzill--just not for the Cameo/Cricut!

I have only had mine for about 3 weeks and I have been using CTMH. I haven't had any problems and I have cut some pretty intricate patterns.

I don't have the cameo but I love American Craft it's great for making mini's and it cuts great in my cricut.

I love Core'dinations. If it is the really textured kind, I just turn it over on the mat and flip my design so it prints backward.
