  11. Like how you used the Kraft americana caardstock I shared with you. Found out last wk from Hobby Lobby employee that the Kraft americana cardstock is discontinued. I went to both HL stores closest to my area since cardstock was 50% off and they were both sold out. Went to a 3rd HL. They had 4 pkgs. I bought 2 and figured that I would not buy all 4 since someone else may be looking for it.
