Default where can I find bazzill cardstock samples

Hi ladies ! I'm tired of ordering bazzill cardstock and it turns out not to be the color I'm really looking for. Is there an inexpensive place or anyone that I can buy samples of their cardstock from? TIA

Default Bazzill swatch books

Bazzill used to sell swatch books. When new papers were released, they would release another swatch book. You can still find a few of them for sale on line (do a Google search for Bazzill swatch book). The trouble is that many of the colors have been discontinued and are difficult if not impossible to find. I have not found new swatch books for the last couple of years because I think they stopped manufacturing them. This is a terrible shame because I used mine for everything. I would plan projects around them. If anyone from Bazzill is reading this, note that I have just stopped ordering your paper. I have the iPhone app for Bazzill but I do not like it nearly as much as I liked the swatches. I hope that they will consider going back to selling swatch books so we can see the paper before buying a large quantity for a project. For certain brands of patterned paper, the Bazzill iPhone app (and maybe their website?) suggests matching cardstock colors.

Bazzill IS now selling the swatch books again. They stopped because they were updating them all I believe. I saw them at CHA and I believe they should be available either now or very soon.

I LOVE all of the options for colors and paper textures that Bazzill gives and I'm very excited about the new swatch books!

In my recent garage sale no one purchased my bazzill samples. i had all the swatch books available in 2008 I believe it was and the organizer box. The organizer box is full and then some. I only want $5 plus shipping for it if you're interested although shipping will likely be $5 cuz I'd have to use a priority flat rate box to save money. Let me know if you want it.

I just spoke with a representative of Bazzill and here is what she said about the NEW swatchbooks...

"We do have 7 of the 11 available. We're still missing the Monochromatics, Smoothies, Orange Peel and Classics. We're waiting on some colors for the missing swatchbooks. They should be here in October and then we'll have the complete sets."

The reason they are making new ones is that the old ones had samples of retired papers in them. The new ones will include samples of all of their current papers.

You should be able to get them from a retail store near you.

Thank you for the info Colleen. I'll keep my eye open and start looking for them online in October since I don't have any stores close by.
