Blueprints are designed with shapes in shades of blue which are designed to be filled with paper or colour to make page design quick and easy.

For example, here is a gallery for a Blueprint that we call “Beach Walking”.  The original page on which that Blueprint is based is displayed as well as a number of examples of pages created using that Blueprint, each one filled with different papers & colors. Click on any of the images to scroll through the gallery.

    So simple but I was not using the fill on tool bar. I was using the background on top right and that did not work! LOL If I don’t put color where your blue design is, will it print your blue color there…or will it be white?
