Kim Arnold

Hi my name is Kim and I am an Aussie living in the beautiful South Island of New Zealand with my husband, teenage son and crazy corgis.

My style of scrapbooking is sometimes described as simple, but I rely on well designed compositions with a strong emphasis on effective colour use. I also often scrap male subjects and day to day life. Lately I have been dabbling with some mixed media techniques and I like to try new things while remaining consistent to my style and always recording my stories.

I have been scrapbooking since pregnant with my son, so around 16 years now. Over that time I designed for a variety of stores, manufacturers, magazines, wholesalers, kit clubs and challenge sites. Life got in the way for a few years and my creativity dropped away. I came to realise that being creative makes me happy and is an essential part of me – and I am back scrapbooking, storytelling and have recently taken up painting.

I am so happy to have been asked to join the 49 and Market design team and I cannot wait to put my spin on these beautiful products.
