I need to replenish my stamping cardstock. What size do you keep on hand?

I always buy 8.5 by 11 inch. This way I can cut it in half either way to create an A2 standard sized card. Or cut into 4 and have 4 card fronts.

I have been very happy with Neenah, GinaK and Recollections (Kraft).

Since this is TwoPeas site, I don't feel comfortable giving other store recommendations, but those are my product recommendations.

I agree with Heidi's comment. For my heavier weight card projects I am also satisfied with Core'dinations 110 Premium cardstock in packs of 25.

I keep 12x12 on hand. Even though I don't scrap it can cut out the shape I need but still have a little extra for making embellishments from the same colour cardstock.

I use all sizes. I love picking up the little six inch paper pads, I use that for my patterned background paper when making cards. Solid color is always 8 1/2 x 11. I do have some 12x12, but tend to use that only for scrapbooking.

I keep both 8 1/2 x 11 and 12x12. I use both sizes in scrapbooking and the 8 1/2 x11 for cards.

Mostly 8.5x11 8x8 and 6x6. I gave away most of my 12x12 and what was left I quartered, unless it was a 'scene' sheet or cardstock
