Hi! I love your initiative and the detail you put in your tutorials. I don't do much more than sewing buttons right now, but I really want to learn more to do my own stuff and people like you inspire me deeply. Thanks for sharing your work!
@Jane: Thanks so much! Will be on the lookout for it xoxo Carly
Hi! Great tute for your woven black ribbon and chain earrings. I will be linking at http://www.handmade-jewelry-club.com/ in future post.
Thanks! Jane http://www.handmade-jewelry-club.com/
Love your projects!
Your "Don't buy...DIY" motto inspires me. Now, I browse my favorite stores just to see what I can make. BTW, I bookmarked your site so I can check it often.
@katcar~ no problem! I thought your necklace was great<3 The more you practice, the better your creations will get! Thanks for your comments! xoxo Carly
(thanks for faving it too, that was really sweet)
thanks, it's not nearly as awesome as yours (i'm probably going to try again to make a better one, pour moi ;)) but thanks anyway <3
Thank you M4ri! You are so sweet<3
I love every single one of your projects!! You are so creative!
Thanks Jolanda! Please do - I'd love to see you there!<3 Thanks for the comment! xxoxo Carly
I really love your projects! they give me so much inspiration. now I have to check your website!
Hi Catfish! That's cool that the higher-denier tights resisted shredding too far...I'll have to try that too! That's awesome they're holding up! You did a great job - looks fab! Thanks for letting me know- xoxox Carly
Hi Carly I used quite thick tights (I think they are 60 denier or more) so they were pretty hard to shred. I found that most of the shreds stopped naturally then I dabbed the polish at teh ends of the shreds and around the edges of the holes just to be sure. Have worn them a couple of times and haven't found that they have shredded any further. Thanks for the great idea x
Jelly Jam: You are so sweet! I wanted to...but last season was so awfully done...(did you see it on Lifetime?? BLECH!) Plus, I'm a great knock-off artist...on-the-spot designer tho? Maybe not so much...You're super-sweet though and I'm so flattered! Thanks for the comment! xoxo Carly
You're really good. You should try out for project runway.
Hi eccemullier! No problem - glad to be your friend! I respect anybody who's brave enough to DIY shoes - many are scared of it!;-) (And I do love shoes terribly - working on making my own right now by forming them on some lasts I bought...so much fun. You're so sweet for your comment! Thank you and hope to see more from you too! Have a great day- xoxox Carly
Thank you edie l.! I appreciate you taking the time to comment (especially when you usually don't!) I just joined cut out + keep after being frustrated with the user experience on Craftster. (It's so easy to upload tutes here!) I can't wait to check out your blog - I'll leave you feedback when I do! I'm not sure what you mean about my blog being "amazing" heh heh...it's nowhere near as awesome as I'd like it to be...but otherwise it's just doing a little bit of work on it, day after day, and things adding up after a time, tweaking, tweaking, tweaking. Eventually I have to redesign the interface for it but I'm being lazy now since it's the hols and all. Thanks for your comment - glad you like my projects! xoxox Carly
Hi! Thanks for accepting friendship =D I love your motto, it's sooo full of truth=D!! Thanks for faving my pirate boots=D I can see you love shoes, all your projects are AWESOME girl! You're such a nice inspiration for this community =D!!
Thank you Doll.Steak! I appreciate the comment! xoxo Carly
I normally don't comment on peoples profiles but your projects are just beautiful. I saw your work featured on a blog and I did not know you were on cut out and keep. I love your shredded tights project, which I am going to do soon, and your rodarte inspired heels, if I wore heels I would have already made them Maybe sometime you could check out my projects and my blog

Noelia Citialin: Thanks! The necklace was from F21, no longer sold so my tutorial's a little obsolete now.

Alexis K.: Thank you so much Alexis K.! I actually started writing articles for FashionTribes.com (where I'm a contributing editor) and my blog originally began as a place for me to showcase all the articles I had written in one spot. Then I added more and more, and eventually it took on a life of its own!
Thanks for your comments! xoxxo Carly
