    If you print your own elements, etc.....what sort of paper do you use? I have 32lb paper for planner pages...but thinking that I should use something thicker for scrap items

    I use "standard" cardstock (TBH, I'm not sure what the specifics are since I no longer have the packaging). It's pretty sturdy, but not so much that it's too stiff. I guess my answer isn't super helpful ;)

    I also use the Epson Premium Presentation Paper MATTE. Colors stay true and I like that is double sided. Just the right weight and clean cuts.

    I use regular copy paper for art journaling - I like the edges to curl up & I love to rip it. I use cardstock (65lb) if I am making cards or tags. Also recently got some craft paper in 65lb - that has been fun to use as card bases.

    I print stickers on Staples White Matte Sticker Paper - nice paper at a good price (just about 50 cents a sheet).
    I print watercolor/paint stickers on Avery's Clear Shipping Labels - pricey at $1 a sheet, but love the results.

    Now if I could just find ink that didn't cost $$$$ - sigh.

    I use the Epson Presentation mentioned above for cards and such.

    For stickers for my personal planner - I'm cheap. So, I use Amazon Basics Full Page Shipping Labels. It's almost off white, but it works for me. It looks fine in photos for CT work, and I don't mind it in person. I like that it's cheap because I screw up printing and cutting often. Plus, I'll use it with my stamp sets in my planner too, and it takes stamp ink really well.

    For paper elements with amazing color I use a matte presentation paper like the ones listed above, but I use the HP brand:

    I was shocked what a difference it made in colors vs. regular cardstock. Here's a comparison:

    I just checked your Epson paper out and it looks like it's the same thing I use, but a different brand and I love that you can get just 50 sheets. I'm almost out of my kind, so I'm going to try yours next! :agree
