Kathy Thompson

Image

Kathy lives in Riverview, New Brunswick with her husband Jim and their 2 daughters, Emma (18) and Rebecca (16). She has one less subject to scrapbook this fall with Emma’s departure for University, so the pressure is all on Rebecca!

Her style is very clean, very timeless, and very photo-centered. If she has a good photo, she has the makings of a good page. She’s never met a piece of striped paper she didn’t like, and nothing inspires her more than really great typography.

Kathy loves to take pictures, plain and simple. She loves being behind the camera, whether it’s to capture the everyday or a special event. She is constantly learning and pushing her knowledge and sharing what she knows through teaching or writing.

She has a love/hate affair with diet coke, loves old school reality tv (Survivor, Idol, etc) and loves to read. She is a reluctant exerciser and her perfect day would be spent at the beach!

 

We asked Kathy to share a little bit about herself and here is what she had to say...

My favourite colour combination is… red and aqua at the moment!

My favourite three products right now are… cardstock, American Crafts Thickers and probably some digital elements!

My favourite non-scrap related website is… right now it’s Bakerella – love her cake pops!

I love it when… I get a good night’s sleep!

My favourite childhood memory is when… we had a brand new pool installed in our backyard!

For inspiration I always look at… magazines, especially magazines geared towards teens. And music; I can go for a walk with my ipod and come back with a hundred different page ideas!

My favourite store to shop in is… Target. Sooooooo wish they were in Canada.

One random fact about me is… I really don’t like pot lucks!

A tip I would like to share is… don’t be too quick to delete your pictures, sometimes a hidden gem lies in a corner or a detail of the photo that you can crop.


Be sure to look back at Kathy's "just shoot me" article series in our summer 2009, fall 2009, winter 2009 and spring 2010 issues.
