My Scrapbooking Resume

My name's Kathie Link. I live in Adelaide, the capital of sunny South Australia with my husband and son.

I have been widely published in scrapbooking magazines internationally (for a full list, see the bottom of this post). I was a 2008 Australian Scrapbooking Memories Master and have contributed to numerous design teams. I also write a scrapbooking blog, Linkage.

My scrapbooking style is fresh and whimsical. I love patterned paper. I love playing with colour and texture. And I adore vintage. They all find their way onto my pages in one way or another. However, the biggest driver for me is capturing the stories. There's always a story to tell.

I have an extensive publication record and have been published in the following magazines and books:

Creating Keepsakes (US)
