Pramodini Arela recreates the laid back style of actress Ashley Tisdale.
Ashley Tisdale has been one of my favorite celebrities not only because of her talent, but also her style. She tends toward slouchy and relaxed clothing, often wearing cardigans, leggings and some boots, which is similar to my style. However, her clothes are boring because they have some edge mixed in with spikes and metal embellishments adorning her outfits. In terms of hair, it is usually just down, with a braid, or thrown up into a topknot. Makeup-wise, she is natural during the daytime, but likes to spice it up with a darker smokey eye for the night. Overall, she is a great icon for easy, but fashionable clothing.

The Maker Boys Cheap + Easy DIY Projects
We chat to Mike, give you a chance to win the book and learn how-to make moss spray paint, a rock chess set and wine rack.
Hi! We're Mike and Jawn, co-creators of MakersKit and huge fans of Cut Out + Keep! We were both art teachers with a passion for all things DIY. When we met we quickly became the best of friends and started teaching DIY workshops as a side business. They became hugely popular and turned into our main, full-time business and a year ago we launch MakersKit. We now create all types of DIY projects kits including Mason Herb Gardens, making Soy Candles, shaking up old school cocktails and even building furniture from laser cut wood. MakersKit Cheap + Easy DIY Projects is our first book, filled with ideas you can do at home with everyday materials you probably already have. We also have guest contributors in the book who have created tutorials of some of their favorite projects. We'd love to see what you come up with, share your creations with us using #makerskit
We head to Liverpool to meet Jo and see her awesome craft space!
How did you find CO+K and why did you join?
I think I found you by accident if I’m honest. I spend a lot of time ‘collecting’ knitting patterns and during one of the usual google searches; I came across the site. Once I got here, I stuck around because I love knitting and I’m always looking for something new to try – there’s something a little more fun about Cut out + Keep than some of the other crafty sites.
What projects are you currently working on?
I’m working through my Christmas presents at the moment – I’m always rubbish with my timing and never get everything done before the big day, so this year I started in June! I’ve got a couple of scarves on the go as well as a Minion for my nephew. I’ve also just finished one of my BIG projects, which I’ve been going back to sporadically over the year. Probably one of the greatest things I’ve ever made Mr. Moose. ***Cat - I've had problems trying to add the moose as a project this morning - i'll try again later, but will send photos over for the time being***Read the rest of the interview »

Nathalie recreates the nature inspired rustic styke of a Mori girl's room.
I chose a mori girl theme. Mori (forest) girl is a Japanese street fashion style, looking sort of like a forest fairy. To me, it evokes a feeling of warmth and cosiness, and the happiness you feel when surrounded by nature.
