I'm looking for suppliers at the moment too. I would just google 'scrapbooking suppliers' in Brisbane and go from there to find actual stores for paper and accessories if you want to DIY.
Otherwise cardsandpockets.com looks pretty good and I think a lot of other girls on here have used them.

Hey Tamgerine,

I found it cheaper to buy and ship paper from US than from any Aus website. I bought paper from http://www.lcipaper.com and their range is quite extensive, might worth a look.

I bought 4 packs (200 sheets) from them although shipping itself cost close to $100 it was still like $50 cheaper than getting it in aus.

Office works and Eckersley have good ranges of card paper and envelopes. Some of the 'wedding specialist' stores Ive found just seem to stock items you would find in Lincraft and Spotlight but wack an extra 20% on, the plus side is though everything you need is in the one place.

Be careful buying bulk paper from overseas as it might not work in your printer, I've had a few that go streaky or the ink not dry properly. Sometimes you can get a sample pack to try first with a few different options and you could always give them your printer model first to make sure it will work.
