But life goes on. Well, I'd been working on projects to submit to two different companies. Both are wonderful companies with terrific products, they really truly are. However, I've realized that I just don't think I could make projects I'm happy with exclusively from one of the companies products.
I have often enjoyed Bella Blvds products in bits and pieces, but trying to make entire layouts with only BB has been a real challenge. I've been counseled not to sign on with a company unless I completely adore their stuff and I just can't say that is true for BB. At least, not that I love it so much that I can forsake the use of all others. I think using the products for the several projects I have showed me that I need a variety of saturation in the papers and embellishments. Bella has a very bright, fully saturated line of products and I am just not a very bright and saturated kind of girl in my Layouts.
So with that, I'd like to reveal to you all of the pages I made using their products. I like them, I really do and they did cause me to climb out of my proverbial box a bit. I'm just not sure that I can keep on climbing, ya know what I mean.
So here is to Bella. You have wonderful products and I know I'll be incorporating them into my projects here and there from time to time.
Here are a few things I've learned.
- If you aren't certain you want to be on a particular company's DT, then you probably should just leave it alone.
- If you don't own very many of a particular company's products, then you probably should just leave it alone.
- Please refer to item number one.
I think Bella Blvd has some fantastic products, they just aren't my particular style. Hope you enjoy! I did enjoy making each of these layouts. I challenged myself in a variety of ways for each one and I feel like I've grown in my craft!
Thanks for looking!
