Introducing Giga Guide Lines

Today's set is one that I have been DYING to introduce since I first prepared the files for our manufacturer's a few months ago.  Everyone and anyone that stamps NEEDS this set.  Honestly, it is probably my favorite of all time.  From now on when someone asks me what their first Papertrey purchase should be, I'm going to tell them that Giga Guide Lines would be perfect. 

If you're new to this blog & Papertrey you may be interested in the posts I did for the two sets that were a prelude to today's introduction, Guide Lines & Guide Lines Two.  Click below to read those posts if you like…

Original Guide Lines Two Countdown Post


First of all, I know there are some of you wondering what the difference is between the original versions and this new version.  The original Guide Lines sets featured decorative elements that all averaged around 3/4-inch in diameter.  The new Giga Guide Lines features nine of my favorite design elements from the original sets, only enlarged to be on average 1-3/4 inches in diameter.

The details.

  • Giga Guide Lines will be available for purchase on October 15th.
  • It will retail for $24.
  • Giga Guide Lines contains a total of 15 stamps (9 images and 6 sentiments)
  • Many of them will coordinate with 1-3/4" circle or square punches.

Hang onto your hats as we explore this amazingly versatile, "must have" stamp set!

Tile grouping

For my first project, I thought I would show you how you can mix the original Guide Lines sets with the new Giga set.

Step 1

Most of the decorative elements in the Giga set were enlarged to the right scale to take up four grid squares in our Guide Lines 1 Grid cardstock, rather than one square like the original sets. 

(If you are unfamiliar with our popular grid cardstock you can purchase it HERE and read more about it HERE). 

This makes it easy to build entire sheets of pattern with hardly any effort.  The first step I did for the pattern I am creating today was to stamp one of the Giga elements using Aqua Mist ink in each appropriate area on the grid.

Step 2

Next, I went in with one of the images from Guide Lines Two.  Using Spring Moss ink, I stamped directly on top of all the elements I had stamped in Aqua Mist.  I love how having the two sizes allows you layering/ mix & match possibilities.

Step 3
For the final layer, I selected another element from Guide Lines Two and added it at the intersection of each of the Aqua Mist elements.

Finished tile pattern

The final pattern is a show-stopper and totally looks like something purchased at a store.  The thing I like best about creating my own like this, is that if I find a pattern I like I can create it as many times as I want and in any other color combos I might be interested in.

Best wishes card

I made three cards with my newly stamped paper, plus added some extras to my paper scraps.  Check out that big sentiment.  This set has several "giga" sentiments that balance out the large size of the giga design elements perfectly!  I heat-embossed the sentiments with White Filigree embossing powder on this particular project!  Love how it pops on the Aqua Mist cardstock!

Taping ribbon loop

I know some of you have been asking about my little bow accents lately.The particular version I used on today's card so super easy to create.  Start with some of our Spring Moss Twill Tape (or whatever other color you desire).  Use a small piece of Scor-tape to adhere the ends together to form a twill loop.

Threading button

Thread one of our small vintage buttons with Rustic Jute Button Twine

Tying twine

Tie the button onto the bow on the backside, cinching in the twill tape as you go.

Finished bow

This little bow makes a fun little addition to a border!  I like to adhere them in place with a glue dot.

Tile trio

Here's the three cards I made.  You can take note of the other sentiments I used from the set.

Wedding wishes card

(click on photo above for a larger view)

This wedding wishes card showcases how you can adapt the design elements from Giga Guide Lines with punches.  I already let you know how these images coordinate with 1-3/4 inch punches, but what happens if you use something smaller?

Punched square

I wanted a smaller "tile" looking embellishment for my  project, so I stamped my images onto Melon Berry cardstock using Vintage Cream ink and punched them out with a 1-3/8 inch square punch.  Note that it is a bit smaller than the image, but it just gives you even MORE possibilities!

Wedding wishes closeup

I used my We R Memory Keeps Corner Chomper to round the two outside corners of the end tiles.  This small touch helps to prevent the card from feeling too "square".  Small pearl accents were added to the center of each tile as a finishing accent.

Thank yous in a row

(click on photo above for a larger view)

Last but not least is a clean & simple design that I created.

Thank you closeup

I stamped one of the decorative elements from Giga Guide Lines onto Vintage Cream cardstock using Orange Zest ink.  I then stamped the "thank you" sentiment from the set across the center of the medallion using Dark Chocolate ink.  I die cut the sentiment with the Standard Oval Nestabilities.  A background was embossed using QuicKutz Retro Diamonds folder with another layer of Vintage Cream cardstock.  All of this was mounted on a Vintage Cream card base.  Don't you just love it?!!?!

Thank you ensemble closed

(click on photo above for a larger view)

I loved the card so much, I made six of them to give to a friend.  I needed a fun way to package them up, so I decided to use our Keeping Tabs template that was released last month.  This photo shows you what the portfolio looks like shut.

Open thank yous

(click on photo above for a larger view)

Here's what it looks like open!  Pretty amazing, isn't it!  The template includes two stylish pockets that are perfect for holding cards & envelopes.  It came together SO easy because even the templates for the decorative mat layers that I stamped on were included with the templates.  Everything was So easy and SO quick! 

Not only do these extra large decorative elements work wonderfully on
card fronts, they look gorgeous on envelope flaps too!  We can't forget
the envelopes!

Looking down on thank yous

As I said earlier, I put a set of six cards in mine, but you could easily fit ten or twelve as long as they didn't have many bulky embellishments.

Thanks for continuing to make such innovative stamps!

  • 119
    Heather Chabries says:

    Well I haven’t actually used the smaller guidelines sets yet, but I have always liked them and thought how fun it would be to play making patterns with them. Now that I see the new big version– I like it a lot better! It feels freer and looser and bolder but more subtle at the same time. Know what I mean? (I hope?) Anyway– definitely on my wish list now, along with the first two smaller versions too.

  • 127
    Angie says:

    I don’t have any of the previous Guide Lines, but mostly it was because I was not too excited about stamping a ton of small images to make patterns. I LOVE the Giga Guide Lines and I think that this is a great addition to the other two sets. I’d love to try this one out for some custom stamped patterned paper.

  • 128
    antje says:

    Becs Attwood says:

    I have looked longingly at the original Guidelines set on many occasions but haven’t yet committed to buying it. After seeing how well the original sets work with this bigger size I am more tempted than ever. Just trying to figure out the number of combinations you could create with these sets & different colour schemes makes my brain hurt! Awesome set – you guys at PTI are full of great ideas! And every one of your samples is gorgeous.

  • 131
    Jane says:

  • 134

    I have no experience with the guidelines sets but I do like what you’ve shown here. I looks easy too.

  • 135

    I love this Giga set! I use I and II to make whole sheets of patterned paper and then I can just cut and go whenever I need a quick and simple card. Now the new Giga stamps will make it so much quicker!

  • 136
    Kelly Marie says:

    Wow!! I love this! My mind is exploding with all the ideas!

  • 140
    Patty Wu says:

    I don’t have the previous guidelines sets but after seeing what you’ve done with the Giga set I want them all now! I think it would be so awesome and cost effective to make your own patterned cardstock – love the idea of using my favorite color combos so I can customize my patterned paper exactly how I want it. These guidelines sets are fantastic! Thanks for showing us your beautiful samples.

  • 141
    Karen H. says:

  • 148
    Titta says:

    I’m lazy, and the original guide lines are a bit too small for my liking. This giga version looks like it’s right up my alley – lots of background covered with not a lot of work! The images look really striking on their own, too. I also like the fact that you can combine the original and giga for even more bang.

  • 149
    Brooke says:

    Creating your own patterned paper is such fun. It’s the perfect way to ALWAYS have something that co-ordinates with the colours you are after. I’m loving Giga Guidelines!

  • 150
    Sherry in MI says:

    Nichole, Giga Guidelines is an awesome stamp
    set. I love its flexibility…love the fact
    that stamps from the previous two sets can
    be overstamped or stamped in between the new
    larger images. The sentiments are great
    as well. Thanks for continuing to surprise
    us with “new and improved” ideas, and thanks
    for the chance to with these great stamps

  • 152
    Taheerah says:

    I have to say that Guidelines II has been my absolute favourite PTI set and I’ve hardly been able to put it down since I got it!

    I just *love* the mix and match possibilities between Giga and the original sizes, I’m so excited by the designs you’ve showcased with it today!! Can’t wait to get my hands on this new set, and think I will have to get the Guidelines paper as well!! Thanks for all the fantastic inspiration Nichole!!!

  • 153
    Gail White says:

    OK you got me. I have not bought the other guidelines because I am lazy (thought they were to small for me)and if I am going to create my own background paper I need big images. I definitely want this set, I can see myself using this set alot, and just think of the tags you can make with these images. I think this set is so far the one I am most excited about owning. You are pretty smart to showcase it with the smaller guidelines, they are now on my wish list also. Keep it coming ladies I dare ya. hahahahahahaha

    Tammy says:

    I adore the previous guidelines sets and cannot wait to get my hands on the new giga set. I love how you stamped the original size in the center of the giga stamp. I enjoy making background paper with my sets but I really like how the giga stamps can be used also as a focal point.

  • 169

    I have both GL sets, and what I love most is that I can make my own patterns in ANY colors I want. Don’t have any red and yellow paper? No problem! I can make a really cool graphic design with GL 1 or 2.
    In this new set, not only are the elements awesome, but those giga sentiments!!!!!!! OMG I can’t wait to get those.

    marycstamps says:

    One of the many things I appreciate about PTI is that you are not an out with the old,in with the new company. You continually look for ways to incorporate and build on previous sets to provide more inspiration and versatility. I typically find it hard, especially with so many cute themed sets to move these background type design sets to the top of my list, but you demonstrate how they are such a worthwhile investment. Many thanks.

  • 310

  • 314
    Vanessa says:

    I already own guidelines I & II, so when I saw the sneak peek I didn’t think I would need the Giga set.I should have known better though. From the minute I saw it on countdown day one, I fell in love. It looked great as a background and now today you showed how magnificent it looks as the focal image. I can’t wait to have this set & if I win I could always give the extras to a friend.

  • 315
    Christine says:

    LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!! Can’t wait til the 15th. I do have Guidelines and this will make a great addition. I especially like the gigi sentiments that are included.

  • 316
    Rhonda H says:

    It’s a no-brainer! With Guidelines, it’s so easy to construct PERFECTLY Color-coordinated patterned paper for your projects, and the medallions stand alone. Also, you can use the guidelines with your QUILTERS SAMPLER sets for perfectly “pieced” quilts!!!
    I – WANT- GIG-A! I -WANT-GIG-A!!

    heidi quick says:

    I have been so intimidated by the “make your own patterned paper” idea in the past, but this idea rocks. And now, with two sizes of images, the pattern ideas seem endless. I’m totally drawn in and thinking this set could be a complete turnaround for my card-making. I see lots of fun, creative possibilities in my future. Thanks for the chance to win these great sets so I can get started right away!

  • 323

    WOW! I’ve put the smaller sets on and off of my list — and somehow they never seem to make the ‘final cut’…but I’m totally enamoured with this new larger set. The sentiments too! I just about fell off my chair when I saw the card set packaged up in Lauren’s template – WOW! Stunning. What a generous package — thanks for the opportunity!

  • 333
    Julie Batta says:

    Awesome. I have both of the guidelines and this will be a great addition. I love to make my own patterned paper and so this will be so much fun to use. I also liked how you used one of the stamps as a focal piece behind your sentiment. So many ways to use this stamp set!!!

My, it’s going to be a tad expensive this month, but these are such fantastic “basics” that we need! There are so many other sets that I am trying to catch up with. I still have to get Believe!

    I have both of the original sets, and you can bet this new set is going in my cart! I would love to share the originals with my sister. I love making background paper with the original sets — there’s something so relaxing and SATISFYING about choosing colors and stamps and then watching the background come to life. It’s one of my favorite things to do when I don’t really have a project in mind. And then later when I’m in a rush, I have all this gorgeous background paper ready to use! The new Giga Guidelines will only multiply my options, What a great idea!

    I have really liked what I’ve seen so far from everyone in the countdowns that feature this set.

How fun.

    I like that you can make your own background paper even faster. Plus, sometimes a larger image is needed to go with the card design. Thanks for the versatility.

  • 398
    Dawn Nikol says:

    I never purchased the original Guidelines sets because I was not interested in making my own patterned paper (intimidating, time consuming, etc.)… what a mistake! After using other stamps and seeing how easy it is (such as the Damask Sets), I’d love to see what all can be done by combining the old & new sets!

    All the possibilities!

    Marge R. says:

    I have only Guide Lines & mainly use it for patterned borders/strips, but Giga Guide Lines is a MUST have set. The thought of actually having the WHOLE package you offer all at once is sooooo exciting — backgrounds OR the ability to use Giga as a focal image is making my head swim with combinations of patterns/colors!

    Thank you for sharing these wonderful ideas, Nichole! The card set with Lauren’s “keeping tabs” template is beautiful. Have a good day! ~ Jen

  • 463
    Heather says:

    I do have the other two Guide Lines sets, as well as some of the grid paper. My biggest challenge is deciding what colors to use. πŸ™‚ But I think what I like most about the Giga set is that you can use a stamp as a single element — you don’t HAVE to make a pattern for it to make an impact. I LOVE your thank you notes. I have that embossing folder, so I think I’ll have to borrow that idea when I get my set. If I don’t win it, I’m certainly buying it!

  • 464

  • 470
    Marcia Truslow says:

    The Gigi size makes a SMASHING statement! I love that you can really see the details well of the beautiful “tile” designs. I already know (and hope) that you will introduce a SECOND gigi size of more of the original designs! They are all so beautiful. Elegant simplicity. I love that!. Plus, your love of Kwikcutz embossing folders must mean that you will be carrying them. right?………

  • 471
    Colleen Wold says:

    I LOVE the guidelines stamp sets-since I like to make alot of clean and simple cards. It would be so easy to make a sheet of background paper and then cut it up into several cards. Oh-the gifts I will be making for the holidays! Can’t wait for the 15th!

    The original guidelines sets have been on my wish list since I first found out about PTI, but I’ve purchased specific sets for specific card occassions thus far, so I don’t have them yet. I LOVE the giga version, though, and will skip to buy this one first; however, I definitely plan to get all of them. I love that this set can be used to make patterned paper but it is also perfect as a focal image. Can’t wait to get it…it’s perfect!!!

    Michele F says:

    I love the original Guidelines sets. I have made my own backgrounds with the Guidelines sets and grid cardstock. I have also used these images as an accent on my projects. They add just the right touch to make it look “finished”.

    The Giga Guidelines is a must have! I love how I can coordinate it with whatever colors I choose. The Giga Guidelines set looks absolutely fabulous – alone and combined with the original sets. I am looking forward to the 15th!

    Joanne M. says:

  • 548
    Shirlann says:

    Well, I have been putting off buying the guidelines set because I can’t draw a straight line even with a ruler! But I do like to make my own designed paper, even gift wrap. I buy the kraft paper in rolls, stamp my design and tie the package with raffia. Of course I make a matching card. Nicole, your directions are clear and use of colors are divine! Love that you and the design team show us projects that are simplistic but have room for our own touch…looking forward to the 15th.

    I have Guidelines II and I love the fact that I can create endless patterns. I also love it that I can whip up a really quick card when I need it – stamp a pattern, put on a sentiment, and voila!

    Using “guidelines” stamp sets, give you never-ending possibilities by changing colors and making up new designs. An all around winner! The new bigger set is awesome! Talk about saving time with a nice big size!

    I don’t have any of the original guidelines yet, but this set has totally brought me round to them. The possibilities with them seem endless – and I totally adore the card set you made for your friend – she is very lucky to have you as her friend. Thanks again for sharing such wonderful sets and ideas.
