White is the new black, or so it seems. The use of no background paper  and instead a pure white canvas (or a stark white, lightly textured paper) is popping up in increasing numbers. I have to admit, it creates a striking, eye-popping design. I even jumped on the bandwagon this week and created two layouts with the new “anti-background”.



What do you think of this trend? Feel free to share a link to a layout you’ve created with a white background. In keeping with today’s tip, Simple Scrapper has a freebie from Project B Designs using the new Funky Daydreams kit.

    It is a fine idea and very cool, but I would not do a lot like this, or all like this but it would be fun to switch it up and try something different.

    I think they look great, but I have a really hard time making a LO with a pure white background, for my own scrapping it always looks to plain! LOL
