Default POW paper has changed??

I have been cutting snowflakes made from names for the youth at our small church. I got a new 20 pack of POW paper from JoAnn's on sale and the new paper is lighter and peels off my cutting mat in nasty, useless layers. If I do manage to get a cut off intact, the paper is now curled and not of the same thickness as some older stock of this paper.

I've e-mailed my utter disgust to American Crafts and have no response to date.

Anyone else using this product notice a change??

What is POW?
Sorry you are having problems with the paper.
Blessings

POW is American Crafts glitter paper. Was a great product.

I have not tried the POW, but Jennifer McGuire raves about the DCWV glitter stack, you could try that.

That snowflake is pretty cool! I have used the DCWV glitter stack in my Big Shot and it works really well for die cutting; not sure how it will work with an electronic cutter, though.

Well, considering I have over half of a 30+ snowflake project cut in the better quality of POW, I'm not really willing to change. Also the DCWV does not have the same quality of sparkle. But thanks for the suggestion!

Update: I talked with American Crafts and they are sending me replacement paper. Maybe this was just a production problem. We shall see.
