It may be July, but our holiday card countdown has begun!
Every year, we make over 100 cards by hand to give to friends, neighbors, relatives, teachers, and family. Starting early takes the pressure off once the holiday season comes around and leaves us time to focus on enjoying the holidays with the ones we love. There is nothing as special as a handmade card to add a personal and loving touch to your correspondence, especially when sending to loved ones who are far away.
Hey there! My name is Erica and I am completely obsessed with all things related to paper and lettering. I use my Cricut almost every day, and am known for being "the girl with no less than 37 different pens and brush markers in her purse at any given time." I live in Indianapolis with my better half, our little lady, and our furry friend. I've had a love of art since I was very young, but my love of letters and paper started when I was in high school. In adulthood, I have been so fortunate to get to channel that love of art into a career in design. As Lead Designer here at Cardstock Warehouse™, I manage the Design Team, branding, product photography, social media content, and lots and lots of paper crafting. :-) I am so grateful to be able to share my creations with all of you and LOVE seeing the wonderful things you create as well!

Hey there!!!!! I’m Stephanie Vittorio, the person behind Coffee Stamps Chaos. I can’t remember a time in my life when creativity wasn’t a part of my life and something I enjoyed. I have been creating handmade cards since 2007 when a friend asked me to help her reach her goal for her Stampin’ Up! Party…the rest is history! I have been in love ever since! I love paper, die cutting, stamps, embossing, and watercolor is my jam! I am passionate about card-making, it brings me such joy to create something from nothing and to share it with the world. I love giving handmade gifts and dabble in a variety of crafts from photography and DIY projects, to dreamcatchers, loom weaving and building things. I just love to create! I’m the one my friends call when they need help with projects or have creative ideas they need help executing.

We've included photo illustrations, how-to tips, and videos to help you create the paper project you've been dreaming of. Just add your imagination and go!
Here are a few considerations for the beginner:
Are you finding paper weights to be confusing? Why is 80 lb. text lighter than 59 lb. cover?
The terms text and cover come from the paper manufacturing world. There are also other paper types that include index and bond, for instance, but we will stick to papers more commonly used for paper crafting here... click to continue >>
Both the size and weight of your finished product will determine the amount of postage required to mail it out. This may be an important consideration if mailing a large volume of pieces, such as announcements, invitations or holiday greeting cards. Mailing a piece with its own special envelope? Be sure to keep in mind the following size requirements for letters... click to continue >>
Paper color is all a matter of personal preference, style, theme and occasion. Ink color, paper bleed and ink absorption are also important considerations when printing and applying ink to paper. Multi-layered cards create a visually pleasing look with options for contrasting color or monochromatic color themes... click to continue >>
Printing is an important factor to consider when choosing paper for your printing projects. Whether you plan on DIY printing or professional printing, do your homework before buying a large supply of paper. Not all paper types are suitable for all printers, especially home printers... click to continue >>
Paper is made up of tiny grains of fiber. During the manufacturing process, they align in the same direction, usually with the longest side of the parent sheet, much like a school of fish or a flock of migrating birds! Knowing how to find the grain, and score your paper is key to creating professional looking pieces... click to continue >>
When it comes to die cutting, all it takes are the right settings to create beautiful, intricate designs. EVERY paper Cardstock Warehouse sells is die cut machine compatible and, when using the right settings, will produce crisp, clean cuts... click to continue >>
Choosing the right adhesive for your paper project is almost as important as choosing the right paper. Are you gluing a large area or a small area? Are you gluing something flat or 3D? Will whatever you are gluing be kept for a long time or thrown away after a short time? Do you need your glue to dry tacky or hard... click to continue >>
