marcy, i wish i knew a good website to suggest. if you're on a tight budget, remember that sometimes you can re-use paper. maybe you already do this, but just in case...

* dress shirt boxes (like the kind they have at dept stores) are of a fantastic thickness for cardmaking.
* stiff cardboard comes with many plastic wrapped products to make them look stiff on the shelf
* waxed paper and foil can produce cool effects relatively cheaply
* used gift wrap (or tissue) can be helpful
* paper grocery bags can be cut up to make cute cards
* used calendars often have a nice thickness (and cool graphics on at least one side)
* corrugated cardboard
* paint sample flipbooks (usu. free at paint counter in hardware stores)
