Little tidbits

White edges - Page 034

Would you like to get rid of the white edges some of our papers have?  Well there are three ways to accomplish this task.

  • 1st - in the Elements panel unlock the background. Then click on Order, next click on Make normal (not the background)  Then you will be able to stretch the paper to eliminate the white edge. 
  • 2nd - after your paper is on the page, right click and then choose flatten.  You will then be able to stretch the paper and eliminate the white edges.
  • 3rd - choose your paper and drag it to your page instead of choosing make the background and then stretch it to eliminate the white edges. 

Another thing I have been doing, so that the paper can be used as "fill this element" option, is to cut the paper with the rectangle cuter.  Next, right click on the paper and choose "Save as Content"  Save it in Your stuff as paper and you can name the paper at this point.  Now you will be able to use the papers without the white edges.

Love the last idea - I hate when I fill an element and it's just that corner!!! Great tips!

Thank you! I adore the Simply Beautiful line (I'm new, this is the first bordered content I've come across) but very disliked that the paper didn't fill to the edges. This completely fixes that!

Josh & Melinda, you are so welcome for the tips and helps. I disliked the white edges and was always dragging them to get rid of it. It is always nice to share ideas. Happy Scrappin'

I'm the opposite, I want the white edges on the papers. How do I add the white edges to a paper?

Thanks! Keep the tips coming, I check here regularly with hope that something's new here.

If you want a white edge, you could shrink the paper to achieve the desired white edge and use some of the edges to make it decorative.
