Normally I jump on the traditional ANTHOLOGYFLEX collections. Like most of you, I started out paper scrapping and traditional just suits me better. Plus, I have a deep love for Bryony’s, Heartstrings Scrap Art, templates. Her templates tend to be more traditional. And. I’m a template girl.

However. I have a very non-traditional daughter. I’m in love with this month’s artsy ANTHOLOGYFLEX collection: Catch Your Dreams by Art & Life Scraps. And Jen’s, Jen Maddocks Designs, templates have amazing bits & pieces in them. All the stars aligned, and I scrapped artsy!
pssst… Did you know there is always a free, bonus, template included with every ANTHOLOGYFLEX purchase? It’s awesome!

I may just be tooting my own horn, but I looooooooooooooove my layouts! It helps that my picture is not only of my non-traditional daughter, but it was taken in equally non-traditional Norway in front of an adorable artsy wall.

I’m still working on which one I love best. I’m more than happy to hear your favorites in the comments. And I’m more than happy to see your spin on this layout. I don’t know if I’m talking scrap lift or photo lift… or both. But I’d love to see them all the same. This one was really fun to make.

Or this one?

Do me a favor and check out Cindy’s, Arts & Life Scraps, entire Catch Your Dreams Anthology! It’s only $9.99. Only until July 28, 2022.

I also have to brag, just a little, about the equally vibrant & fabulous traditional ANTHOLOGYFLEX collection: Togetherness by Silvia Romeo Design.

The purples, violets & pinks work beautifully together, and used with Bryony’s template, the pages are just stunning. I love the sheer amount of blooms Silvia includes. It makes each page different & unique. I love that in a kit!

I’ve seen quite a few incredible layouts float by, but I especially love these two by Norma. I especially love that she used pink flowers, cream background in one and the opposite (cream flowers, pink background) in the other. She also used the oh-so-scrapable templates by Bryony.

I couldn’t help myself. It’s been so long since I’ve created some free quickpages, I turned both layouts into one. The actual quickpage is, of course, without the wonderful photo’s of Tess 💜
