Annlouise from Sequins in Pink recreates the chic style of pop princess Taylor Swift.
What I love with Taylor Swift's style is that she one day can have a black, tight, sexy dress and the next day a floral skirt and a cute bag. No matter what she wear, she is always well-dressed and her outfits are always perfectly composed.
Holly Olivia Cook recreates the red carpet look of actress Jennifer Lawrence and gives her a bronze goddess makeover.

We head to Phoenix, Arizona to meet LizzyLovesSatan who loves costume making.
How did you find CO+K and why did you join?
I found this place many many years ago when it was just Cat! I joined much later after I saw it became a big, great community for crafting!
What projects are you currently working on?
Right now, I'm decorating a pair of converse. I've dyed them purple, added some metal spikes right at the back, and am using Angelus leather paint to decorate them with symbols and writing. I will post them here when I finish!
As I mentioned, I'm also decorating a denim vest. I have already put a load of patches and buttons on it. I plan to add spikes as well, and I am decorating lots of the vest with rhinestones!Read the rest of the interview »

DIY T-Shirt Crafts
We chat to Adrianne Surian, give you the chance to win the book and learn how-to make a Floral Bib Style Necklace, Braided Yarn Bowl and Knotted Hanging Planter.
Hi, I'm Adrianne. I'm a crafter, artist, writer, and all-around DIY-er. I live in Grand Rapids, Michigan with my husband and two kids, and I pretty much survive on coffee and crazy ideas. (I wish I were just being clever, but that's actually true.) I started blogging craft projects in 2011 at my website, happyhourprojects.com, and having that outlet really led me to craft more and write more and really pursue my creative side that I had kind of neglected for a few years.
Heather recreates the gothic style of Morticia Addams home from The Addams Family.
When I was growing up I loved watching the Addams family and Morticia Addams was who I dreamed of growing up to be she oozed class, was a strong confident woman and had hair to die for (I'm fair and curly :( ) she was also quite a crafty lady, with her love of gardening, knitting and sewing. Even after all these years I still think she's an awesome character so I have hopefully made a list that she would approve of :)
My name is Katie Chappell. I am an artist living in Berlin, Germany. I grew up in North East England, received my foundation degree in animation from Newcastle College and my BA(hons) in Illustration and design from Sunderland University. I live on the 4th floor of an old German block of flats overlooking a canal with ducks that I like to listen to while I work. In amongst the plants on my desk I create playful drawings and paintings that have been described as 'innocent, with a hand-rendered feel'. During my time in the UK I founded the urban sketching group, Sketchcrawl North East, started Illustration Bandits magazine and co-animated a film for the Angel of the North's 15th anniversary. Most recently I have worked with Newcastle University to illustrate a series of short stories about future sustainability and eco-friendliness in the city.
