Introducing Guide Lines Grid Cardstock

You've all let us know loud and clear that you LOVE both of our Guide Lines stamp sets.  I don't know about you, but I am always looking for ways to get more from  my stamping time so there's more room for fun and more projects completed!  The grid images included in both of the Guide Lines sets can be a bit time consuming, especially if you have a large area to cover.  We have developed a new product that is the PERFECT solution for quick and easy patterns made with both of these stamp sets!

Guide Lines Grid Cardstocks printed with the grid patterns found in both of the coordinating stamp sets.  The grids are in a very light gray, making them a wonderful neutral which will practically disappear once you overlay your colorful patterned pieces on top.  The grids are printed on our high quality Stamper's Select White cardstock so your images will stamp crisply and evenly.  We have two types of the cardstock releasing this month…

Guide Lines I Grid Cardstock
featuring the same basic grid pattern found in the original Guide Lines stamp set. 
10 (8.5 x 11" sheets) for $3

Guide Lines II Grid Cardstock
featuring the same circular grid pattern found in the our follow up set, Guide Lines Two.
10 (8.5 x 11" sheets) for $3

We are waiting to see how well this new product is received before going forward with an expanded lineup.  A vintage cream option, for example, is something I personally would like to see come next!

Plaid Thank you card

You definitely do not need to limit yourself to using the new grid cardstocks with just the Guide Lines sets.  I am sure with some experimentation, new compatible sets will be discovered all the time!  I pulled out one of our very first sets, Faux Ribbon, to create this really pretty plaid using the Guide Lines Grid I cardstock. 

Plaid closeup

The basic grid is just what I needed to make perfectly positioned lines to build the plaid.  I was THRILLED with how easy it was and how great the results were!  I found the best method to be to cut the grid cardstock down to a piece measuring 5-1/2-inches square.  That way as you are stamping the lines, you can see both ends of the stamp and line them up perfectly every time!  After I was done stamping, I removed the thread from my sewing machine and stitched/pierced holes along all of the gridlines.  When the paper was completed, you couldn't even tell that it had ever been printed with any kind of grid!

Get Well Soon Card

Next is a project I created using a simple circle border from Borders & Corners in conjunction with the Guide Lines Grid Cardstock II.  And I'll be honest.  I just NEEDED to create something that would coordinate with one of the fun teapots I created yesterday with my Copics! *wink*

Circle pattern

(click on photo for larger view)

I decided to embrace the circular grid pattern and incorporate it more into my design.  The border stamp I chose was just slightly larger than the circle portions of the grid so the images highlighted the gray areas rather then covering them up.  Fun, isn't it!

Praying for You Card

Lastly, I figured I couldn't showcase this great new product without using it as it was intended!  On this project I used the Guide Lines Grid cardstock II along with the Guide Lines II stamp set.  I paired the colors raspberry fizz, ripe avocado and smokey shadow for this particular pattern and I think it turned out beautifully together.

Praying for you closeup

Our new Smokey Shadow cardstock flanks the top of the card along with the beautiful sentiment "Praying for You" found in Damask Designs, which is heat embossed with white filigree embossing powder. 

So there you have the final product introduction for the April Release!  I hope you have enjoyed all of the projects this week and hopefully learned a few new tips or techniques! 

I would love it if you would hsare one thing that has stood out to you this week, or perhaps even what you learned that you hope to apply to a project yourself soon.

    Oh wow! I’ve held off on purchasing guidelines because I was afraid of messing up just stamping the grid part – you solved all my problems with one tiny little product! Yay!

    THANK YOU for creating the guide lines I and II paper cardstock! Laying down the basic gridlines is always the most difficult for me, especially when repeating the grid across the cardstock more than one time. Now I can just get to the FUN part of making up the designs! Can’t wait to order and use these new sheet!

  • 35

    Wow, what a great idea. Now I don’t have to worry about getting the guidelines straight before stamping the other images! The hard part is already done for me.

    Oh my gosh! I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to see the guidelines paper.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Becky P. says:

    I continue to be both impressed and amazed by your talents, and that of your design team. I am sold on all of your background sets, and the gridlines paper, is genious. I also fell in love with the tea set. I am not sure if it is the set itself, or the love you demonstrated in your preview of it. I know that would be a go to set for me. The sentiments are great, and who doesn’t love a cup of tea, when times are tough?

  • 52
    Jillian Winters says:

  • 53
    Jeanne says:

    Pure genius!!!!!!! This is perfect for anyone who feels challenged by lining up the background prints. Wow! How versatile and practical. The concept of a trio of Copics that coordinate with PTI colors. I think this will make anyone who has been hesitant to venture into Copics find success especially with your helpful hints and tutorials.

  • 54
    Judy S says:

    Oh, the Grid Cardstock is pure genius! I have been especially challenged trying to get things lined up – this will help tremendously! The one thing that stood out for me during this pre-release is the Copic patterns you created for the teapot. So many different looks!

    I love the idea of the Guide Lines Grid papers! I’m going to buy some, and then beg you to add Vintage Cream and even Lemon Tart and Aqua Mist down the road. Every patterned paper I see now, I wonder if I can make it myself using either Guide Lines or Guide Lines Two! It’s a sickness. πŸ™‚

    Your new guidelines cardstock is a brilliant idea! I would love love love to have both of your guidelines sets to make my own background paper. So many things have stood out during this countdown…and though this product isn’t new this month it is one that was demonstrated in this countdown: I’d like to try using the Versamark Dazzle ink pad to add shimmer quickly and easily. And of course I want to be able to use every new release!!

    How would one share their favorite thing they learned with your sneak peeks the past several day? From splashes of ink/raindrops on the umbrella to linen fabric to Guideline paper, PTI runs the whole creative gamut. Would love to win this awesome prize ~ thanks!

  • 128
    Becs Attwood says:

    Wow – you guys are always full of great ideas! I love how many great things you can do with this cardstock even if you don’t have the Guidelines sets – especially Nichole’s plaid example and Becky using it to line up square images from the Quilters Sampler set.

    Gridline paper is such a great idea- so versatile- I love it!

    Pavla H says:

    The patterns you make are absolutely fabulous!

  • 131
    Jane says:

    What can I say! All the stamps have endless possibilities as you and other designers have shown. The great tips about Copic markers. The shimmer with the new versamark ink pad…….conclusion- I have to have it all!

    Maylee says:

    Brilliant idea! You guys are awesome.

    Jan Brooks says:

    These new gridline papers are brilliant! Stamping them and keeping everything so straight seemed an impossible task to me. You’ve solved all my problems!

    What I have seen and have been inspired by this week, was the stationary set you made with Lauren’s template. Really want to make several sets for gifts.

    Thanks, Nicole!

    Tracey says:

    These grid papers REALLY stood out to me this week….it showed me that I can really create my own designs without being a “real” artist….just a crafty girl :))

  • 137
    Linda says:

    I just love what the design team is doing. I see a stamp set and I see one option. WOW, how they open my eyes to the possibilities!!

  • 138
    Melissa McF says:

    This will be a VERY expensive month at PTI for me! Lots of standouts in the new releases but I use gray as my basic neutral all the time and I’m beyond thrilled that I’ll have TWO grays available in my favorite cardstock!

  • 139
    CamiG says:

    What a brilliant idea! I adore my Guidelines sets, but I would adore them even more if I didn’t have to create the grid first. Any chance you’ll eventually sell paper with the grid printed on the diagonal? I find that is how I use the grid most of the time, and it can be tricky to get it lined up just right…

  • 140
    Clouds says:

    Great idea, a guidelines set! This would totally make things easier for stamping patterns! Very cool!

    Clouds :o)

    Cheri Howard says:

    What gorgeous samples, and I love the idea of your cardstock!

  • 142
    Josiane says:

    Definitely the Guide Lines Grid cardstock has stood out for me. I have been wanting to buy these two sets but have been intimidated at the thought of stamping the grid AND the designs. So these would definitely save me time and effort! Thanks so much for such a great product!

  • 143
    Betty C says:

    It’s hard to come up with one thing, but I guess it would be the Teapot stamp set and the copics lesson. The copics offer a new and exciting technique.

  • 144
    Maria M. says:

    You guys think of everything to make it even easier for us. How cool is that to have cardstock all ready with guide lines! Personalized designer paper…here I come!

  • 145
    Vina says:

    Genius! I am considering your Guide lines 2 set & this new card stock would make it so much easier to use! I can’t wait for your full reveal!!

  • 146
    L. Brown says:

    Great idea. So many possibilities.

  • 147

    It’s so hard to just pick out one thing from all the wonderful releases this week – but for me it has to be Lauren’s newest template to make a great desk set. I can’t wait to make several of these for friends!

  • 156
    Dana says:

    OMG what a great idea!! I don’t own one of the Guidelines stamp sets, yet. Just last week, I printed out some standard grid patterns at home to have a try with Simply Stationary. But clearly, this preprinted version is so much better!! Thank you, Nichole!

  • 157
    Sharon B says:

    OMG what an amazing prize you are giving away today! I desperately want the gridlines stamp sets, and they are high on my list of things to buy – along with the faux ribbon set you also mentioned!

  • 158
    Debbie says:

    what an absolutely brilliant idea!! Very very clever!

  • 159
    Toni says:

    The one thing that I have kept in mind since I read it was the mini button/ribbon tutorial that you posted with the introduction to scattered showers. It might seem simple, but it is so hard for me to get my buttons and bows to look right. I am going to try this and see if it fixes things for me! Thanks so much!

  • 160
    Heather D says:

    What stood out for me this week is how full my cart is going to be! I love the new releases so much. Thanks for giving us a sneak peek of your new products and so many wonderful ideas to go with them. Roll on the 15th!

  • 161
    Emma says:

    The stand out product this month for me has been the introduction of copics. Now that papertrey stocks these markers I think I may just have to jump on the bandwagon and join the copic craze!

    My faves for this week are the Copics, the Guideline papers, the new neutral cardstocks, and of course……all the stamp sets.

    I must admit….I have always had a little difficulty in stamping my grids and lines. This new paper will certainly solve my problem and will be GREAT for use with many other sets!! Thanks a million!!

  • 191
    Sophia C. says:

    I love how you incorporated fabric into your cards this week. I’m eager to try it! I also love your work with the Copic markers. What great ideas!

    Wow! As a relative newcomer to PTI, I continue to be amazed. Truthfully, I have been a little wary of my ability to master the guidelines stamps…but now…with this paper…I would sure like to give it a try!!

    Cyndi says:

    Oh Nicole–this is what I love about Papertrey. Not only do you create products that coordinate together, but you also create products that make it easier and less time consuming for all of us to put a project together. This is what sets your company apart, in my mind, and it’s why I keep coming back to your company. Thank you! The idea of the Guidelines grid paper is brilliant, and this paper will definitely be on my order this month. Now, if you only have Guidelines II in stock!

  • 199
    Renee Shlachter says:

    This is PERFECT! I don’t mind stamping the grids on smaller pieces of paper, but being able to just add the design elements on a pre-printed grid is just too cool. WOW!

    Diana says:

    What a great idea! This will definitely be a time saver especially if you have a lot of cards to stamp out.

    Amazing! A great idea!! And it cuts out one step and saves time. I’m sure you’ll come up with other ideas for it soon!!

  • 210
    SusanB says:

    Pick me, pick me! Guide Lines was the very first PTI stamp set I got and it rocks. I’d love to get the rest of the collection and gift my mom with the original :). This month, my fave is….oh, I don’t know. The spots bkgrd set for $15 sounds like a steal! And it’s got dots in it, who could ask for more?!

  • 211
    Martha says:

    How exciting. I don’t have these sets yet and would love to win them!

    Stephanie Niavez says:

    Wow! What a neat idea. When I think you have just oudone yourself, you do it again. Great job! I love it!

  • 217
    Deb Rymer says:

    What a great idea! The fun is in decorating the grid anyway… It’s hard to pick a favorite this time around. Dawn has been so inspirational with her darling umbrellas, and Lisa with her spots and you with the teapots – all such great images and projects!

  • 218

    Ohhh you’re enabling! I was never in to the Guide Lines or background creating things – just take too much time for a working mom – BUT – this really does make one give it some more thought. I loved the versatility with this week’s releases – Pine’s All Star set and Dawn’s Scattered Showers initially seem to be limited in their uses but so many great examples of how you can maximize their use and do all sorts of neat things for all sorts of occasions. Great month!

  • 219
    Sandy Kay says:

    I am impressed that not only does this cardstock work with Guide Lines I & II, it works with other stamp sets as well – looks so easy – the hard part is done for you!

  • 220
    Karen says:

    Copics in sets to match the Papertrey colors which I love so much is the best news yet. But grid paper—definitely another wonderful idea! My wish list here is always longer than my budget allows, and it got longer still this week!

  • 221
    Jaime Seiter says:

    Wow! That is such a great idea! I always thought the guidelines stamps would be fun to play with, But I always held off on buying them because I could see myself not being patient enough to work with them…The grid paper will shave a lot of time off and probably influence me to buy the stamps!

  • 222
    Laura says:

    Jean Dominguez says:

    It is so hard to choose what stands out the most except you & your design team amazing creativity! While I love the teapots & the fact that you will be selling Copic’s I think what stands out the most is the Guide Lines paper. It helps take some of the load off. Thanks!

  • 224
    Anette Eakins says:

    What a great idea- definitely a time saver!
    One thing that stood out was your umbrella card with the paint/water splatters. So different! I really want to experiment with that. Can’t wait for the full release tonight!

    Jessica Purvis says:

    I absolutely adore the Guidelines sets and I know I’ll have to try this new paper! I can see an endless array of possibilities using a lot of different stamp sets. Thank-you so much for introducing it!

    And I loved your copic teapot tutorial so much I immediately went downstairs to try it out! That small idea of using a lighter color to make a PATTERN never occured to me before and has really opened my eyes to a whole new avenue of things I can do with them. THANK YOU so much for that idea!

  • 226

    Lee Cockrum says:

    I always see new ideas and techniques from you and your design team. But I have to tell you, your teapots are the first thing that has ever tempted me to buy copics. I just am not a person who colors things in individually, but those teapots were fabulous!

    Another great day of inspiring projects. There’s been so much the past few days. I think the day that you made the umbrella cards and did the pink splatter with the umbrella sticks out the most to me.

    I too learned a lot from the little bit that you shared with the copics. I have not jumped on the copic craze because I just don’t love the intricate coloring. I normally skip tutorials about copics on various blogs. However, you made it simple and doable. I’m actually considering copics… a trio of colors like you shared to see what I think.

    peggysue says:

    I think the paper is a fabulous idea! Especially for someone like me who has trouble drawing a straight line even with a ruler involved. πŸ™‚ The guidelines stamp was always a bit tricky for me, this is a cool idea. Hmmm, what stood out most? I guess just all the great examples as usual. Such inspiration.

  • 333

  • 340
    Ginny Schleich says:

    I especially love the card you did with the stitched monogram. Since the Spots & Dots is not available yet, I pulled out my Grid lines II set. I love both grid lines. It does take time to stamp out a whole sheet of card stock. I’m looking forward to getting the grid card stock to make things a little quicker when I need to make cards in a hurry. Looking forward to the release party tonight!

  • 341

    absolutely BRILLIANT. I am SO getting these!

  • 348
    Sara says:

    Oh Nichole, this is perfect! I have not bought either Guidlines set because I really have a hard time building my own backgrounds. I love the idea of the grids already being done for me. Can’t wait to buy this and give it a try with my existing PTI stamps!

  • 349
    Carol Hinton says:

    Wow ….. I love the new Grideline cardstock!!!! It never ceases to amaze the innovative ideas that Papertrey comes up with. I like making vintage cards, so the vintage cream grideline cardstock would be fabulous! I was inspired by your teapot copic tutorial. I’m just learning how to use the markers and I’d like to try incorporating different designs on my stamped images using a lighter marker. The different designs you did on the teapots are so nice!

  • 350
    Margaret Peltier says:

  • 389
    Laura G. says:

    As usual, just when I think it can’t get better, it does! I love the idea of this new gridline paper as I don’t use my original Gridline set as often as I should. Wanted Gridline 2, but didn’t buy it for that reason. Keeping fingers crossed.

    I am so excited about the Guidelines paper!! I love the sets, but in a pinch it will save so much time to already have the grid printed!! Yeah for PTI!!

  • 410
    Tamara says:

    This is a fabulous idea! Grid lines has been on my list since it was released, but with shipping to Canada, I have to save my pennies and place one really large order to make it worth the shipping, so it is still sitting on my wish list. When I *do* order it, I know this cardstock will also be on the order. Great idea!

  • 411
    Kim says:

    There are so many beautiful things made with these products, and i do not have any of them. Would love to get them.

    Sandra B. says:

    Genius! Patterned paper will be so much easier to make with the new guide lines cardstock! I always learn a lot from your blog. I am definitely going to try the embroidered monogram. I also learned how you can make different patterns using copics. Thank you! Oh, and the ribbon tutorial with the button in the middle is great! Mine look so much better now!

  • 414
    Sarah A says:

    Perfect!!! I haev just started to spend more time with Guidelines 2 and love the results. This will be such a time saver! Thanks again, Nichole- you’re killing my craft budget! πŸ™‚

    MeShellaBella says:

    WOWZERS! Guidelines CARDSTOCK! I never bought the Guidelines sets because I’m too lazy to stamp the grids evenly, so this is my DREAM COME TRUE! What a wonderful idea! Of course…PTI is inside my head! I love your use of Copics this month on the teapots! I have a few different colors and had never thought about trying this out…good idea with the patterns!

  • 421
    Barbara V says:

    I love the new stamp sets, but the new designer paper and the cardstock colors are wonderful. Everything sparks our creativity!

  • 422
    Deanna says:

    Wow, I must say I am so happy… honestly I don’t have a block big enough for the grid stamp so I hardly ever use it… thank you for this paper!

    I really love Lisa’s set this month (again) especially how she colored it with the copics and the copic work you did on the Tea set! I love that you continualy keep us using stuff we most likely already have some of!

    I feel another big order coming on!

  • 423

    I think this is a fantastic idea. I, unfortunately, do not own either Guidelines set yet.. but all the while I’ve wondered if I’d be able to keep things straight and even.

Thank you for the chance to win the entire Guidelines kit n kaboodle. πŸ™‚

    Some of the things that stood out to me was the Copic markers, the grey colors being introduced, the awesome new Guidelines cardstock, the cool spins on old things like the upcoming All Star stamp set and last but not least the release of the Aqua Mist buttons (along with Sweet Blush and Dark Chocolate of course)! As always you have made this month’s release beyond exciting.

    Peg says:

    This sounds like the perfect paper for me! I love the idea of making stripes and plaids, too.

  • 573
    Janet L says:

    Wow, what a great idea to get those images all lined up! Love also what you can do with the Copic markers. The designs on the teapots are fantastic.

  • 574

    There are way too many things that stood out this week! But one thing that caught my eye were the custom teapots and the umbrella set on Dawn’s site.

    LOVE it all!

  • 575
    Merry Sixt says:

    I am so excited about the Guidelines paper! I love creating my own backgrounds, and this is a fabulous addition. Thank you so much for continually bringing us wonderful products!

    Love the teapot card! The Guidelines Cardstock is SUCH a great idea!!! You’re all gonna bankrupt me πŸ™‚ Thanks for the great inspiration.

  • 578
    Gail Barbosa says:

    I am impressed. I think even I could be successful with the guide lines. Gonna try!

  • 579
    Teresa H says:

    What an awesome idea!! Love this grid paper – this will make it so much easier to make patterns! I hadn’t ventured into the grid lines stamp sets because I have a hard time lining things up – this will make it soo much easier!!

  • 580
    nina says:

    Beautiful projects as always! I’ve loved all the background stamp projects – especially love the idea of colouring in the dots with Copics. Possibilities are endless. Love the prize package – sure would take care of a bunch of stuff at the top of my wishlist!

  • 581
    Jill J. says:

    Dawn McVey’s samples using the Scattered Showers set were AMAZING. I especially liked the last sample with the pink paint over the embossed umbrella.

  • 582
    Lola Goldberg says:

    Another serving of delicious goodies all around! I have to say that one thing that has stood out to me this week are the projects I’ve seen using the templates. Not only are they lovely, but she makes them seem do-able, which is a real plus. I’ve had my eye on the Guide Lines sets for some time, and the addition of the paper is yet another example of the offerings that make Papertrey so appealing!

  • 583
    Sabrina says:

    What a great idea! I love all of your wonderful stamps and great ideas!

  • 584
    Jolene S says:

    I’ll be honest… I’m a little intimidated by the Guide Lines product line-up as it’s a bit out of my comfort zone but I think it looks easy enough to figure out! Now with the help of the cardstock, I should be able to do it! One would hope anyway!

  • 585
    Ginaj says:

    The grid paper definitely makes me less nervous to try guidelines…it looks so cool, but I doubt my ability to create such wonderful things with it. And can I just say that umbrellas and teapots are two of my favorites. How do you do it every month??

  • 586
    Michelle L says:

    I love the Guide Lines sets and now the paper too…I’m in Heaven! Your creativity always inspires me Nichole!

  • 587
    Megan B says:

    What an AWESOME idea! πŸ™‚ Looking forward to creating backgrounds faster with these papers….It would also be fun to see some printed in a light tan on a cream background.

  • 588
    Cheri Mosgrove says:

    Great job this month, Nichole! Another month that blows my mind and will break the pocketbook! πŸ™‚ Always so much fun!

    Okay, this might be the single BEST. IDEA. EVER!!!

  • 594
    Mary H. says:

    Everything PTI does stands out to me…although I do love the tea pots and the cards that include a couple tea bags. So cute!

  • 595
    Sarah F. says:

    I love Guidelines. What a great idea to make using the versatile sets even easier.

  • 596
    Carolyn Yat says:

    Just when I thought you couldn’t come up with more ideas, you come out with gridline cardstock.

  • 597
    Lynn Brown says:

    You think of everything, don’t you?! This is such a great idea. Also, I’ve been wanting Copics for a long time, and PTI carrying them just might make me take the plunge and buy some.

  • 598
    Kristy Y says:

    Oh no, just another thing to spend my money on!

  • 599
    Shellie Hartsock says:

    I always look forward to seeing the new stamp sets, new colors, new paper, etc. I have wanted Copics for a long time but I think now I will go for it since you have made it so easy to select the colors. I can’t wait to try all the fun coloring techniques.

    So many wonderful new products – beautiful, versatile stamps; great new neutral paper colors; “From the desk of” Timeless Template; and Guidelines paper, too!

  • 601
    Dana G says:

    Brilliant! The grid can be a challenge to stamp but the preprinted option will get you started easily! I love you idea of a vintage cream base and also, the pattern you made with the circle border! LOVELY!

  • 602
    elana k says:

    With this release, only my third since “discovering” PTI, I am continuing to see how brilliant and fabulous you and your design team are! I love the versatility of the products and the beautiful examples. I especially loved the paint splatter technique on the umbrella card and seeing how you tie your bows-I have already tried it. Thanks for all the inspiration!

  • 603
    Cari says:

    What a great idea…makes it a lot quicker to get those beautiful patterns going!

  • 604
    Karen says:

    The gridline paper is a great idea along with the gridline stamps. I absolutely love your tea pot card that you posted today. It is so darn cute and original. I’m in love with all the new releases and would love to win a prize. Thanks for the chance.

  • 605


    Every post I have seen this month has been to die for! All the ideas are incredible! I would love to win one of these cuties, since sadly I won’t be able to buy them all!

  • 606
    Carrie T says:

    What an absolutely cool idea! I love creating backgrounds and this is a true asset!

  • 608
    Joanne says:

    The grid line paper is incredible. I am in love and this is a must have

  • 609
    Sue D says:

    The guide lines grid cardstock is a very clever idea. I also liked a previous project where they cut out the umbrella to see the words underneath–I think I would like to try that and I also love the tea bag card with the linen folded over it.

  • 610
    care-in says:

    I am determined to learn how to do background papers but I am having trouble with guidelines and lining up the grid. This paper will help so much! Wow…I can’t believe you thought of this. We really shouldn’t be surprised though right?!! PTI thinks of everything.

  • 611
    Lisa says:

    Okay that is the coolest idea…as stamping the ‘guidelines’ is the hardest part for me! I am thrilled with the expansion of more ‘guidelines’ stamps…they are awesome!

  • 612
    Joanne says:

    As usual – each release gets better and better and oh what talented and creative ladies

  • 618
    Michelle says:

    This is an amazing idea… a real time saver.. another stroke of Papertrey GENIUS!!!

  • 619
    Diane Du says:

    What stood out to me was the cutout you did using the Umbrella stamp. I see cutouts on cards in the store but never thought of doing that myself! Now I am seeing a lot of possibilities for cutouts in the PTI stamps I already own. Thank you for once again giving us new creative ideas to get the most for our craft dollars.

  • 620
    Christine McMullin says:

    ONE thing that stood out?!? Okay, I’ll narrow it down. I was reminded that y’all have provided us the tools to make some pretty great cards and projects. Nicole and the rest of the design team consistently share wonderful creations with us and frequently break them down so that “mere mortals” can reproduce them. I sometimes pull out my stash and get overwhelmed – but all I have to do is come back to one of these wonderful blogs for a little inspiration and encouragement.

  • 621
    Kathy Frawley says:

    WOW!! This is so right up my alley!! Love it!! can not wait to order this new paper and of course, the stamp set!!

  • 622

    This new paper is a great idea, love it! What a great prize package…thanks for offering it!

  • 623

    Great idea! One thing that stood out for me was all the ways you used Copic markers on the teapots. I will definitely be using those ideas. Thanks for the chance to win!

  • 624
    wandabing says:

    I think the idea of the guidelines stamp sets is FANTABULOUS!!!! How smart are you guys??? Now you are adding CS- blowing me away!!!

  • 631
    Elizabeth says:

    I am new to stamping so your posts are always a huge inspiration to me, I was so excited to see the darling teapots (I have a “thing” for tea!) and thought that you could never top my excitement over that! Then today I saw your Guidelines papers and was thrilled!!! I LOVE your guidelines sets but am so intimidated by them…these papers are going to open a whole new stamping world for me!!! I can’t wait!!!

  • 637
    Melissa D. says:

    This is awesome. I love it. I cannot wait to play with the new cardstock or the copics. I have a few copics but it will be fun to have more, as always. I already have the first guide lines set so this cardstock will be fun to play with. TFS!!!

    Col says:

    I love the idea of gridelines paper. I have a really hard time stamping in a straight line and this new paper will make it so much easier to use my new stamps. Also I have the circle border stamps so I will have a new way to use those as well.

  • 644

  • 656
    Sherri P eh says:

    Every month’s wish list is longer than the previous. You just keep introducing more and more cool stuff! Amazingly awesome!!

  • 657
    Sue McKibben says:

    I love the versatility of having the grid printed on the card stock. It would make it so much easier to line up the stamps – and the bonus is that you really don’t notice the lines on the paper on the finished product. Brilliant idea!

  • 658
    Joy says:

    It has been utter torture waiting for today – I’ve been staring at the calendar since March 15! I can’t wait to get my hands on the new paper, copics, and I’m craving that new shower set!

  • 659
    Susan MC says:

    Wow- what a great idea. You all really think of everything!! This will be so helpful as I have such a hard time stamping straight and keeping a background aligned properly. I am so excited to order some of this — of course it would be even more exciting if I WON it!! πŸ™‚

    My mind is spinning just thinking up all the ideas!

  • 676
    Kelli says:

    Okay, what stands out to me is the use of Copics. If I didn’t already own the complete set of SU! markers, I would find a Copic club to join! But seriously, the grid CS is a fabulous idea. Kraft would be a nice addition, as well as creamy Ivory. I would love to win EVERYTHING! (but then that’s exactly where the “I want it all” package comes from, eh?)

  • 690
    Monica L says:

    LOVE IT!!! I’ve been wanting to order the guideline 2 and this prize set would be spectacular–the stamps and the paper to facilitate the design. I especially like the pale grey of the grids–allows the grid to take a backseat to the wonderful stamps the team has designed.

    Another great product! thanks…

    I love the idea of the c/s! I was looking at the sneak peeks last night and was trying to decide if I could make straight enough lines to fill up a whole page for a sb project – now I don’t have to wonder! I really want to make more of my own patterned paper for my sb pages and the guideline sets are just what I need!

    thanks for such a great idea/product!!! Andrea

    I loved the way you created the “Tea for two” sentiment – by stamping on vellum and providing a colored base. That’s something I’m looking forward to doing. Also, the pink bow on this card. Simply love it! Needless to say you’re uber talented! πŸ™‚

    Sounds like a great idea to me. I always have problems getting/keeping things lined up. Having some of the work done for me will be a real time saver too.
