I make many of my own backgrounds and embellishments and plain white paper is a must. I love the weight of Bazzill cardstock and don't like to settle for other brands.
Used in this layout: Catching Up
I just bought this product and noticed it has the barcode on all of the pages by the edge of each one of them and cannot be removed and is not white white it's like a off white color. Like the textured.
Bazzill printed a label onto the edge of each sheet that and the label cuts into the 12x12 area so that the actual usable cardstock is not 12x12.
If you like to use this cardstock as your background like I do, that makes this pack totally unusable. Hopefully Scrapbook.com will reimburse for it.
I don't know if this is a fluke that happened to the papers made in my batch, or it they are always like this.
