What are your hobbies?

We love finding new hobbies and playing about, but our main pass times are thrifting, baking, and dressing up in 50s clothing :D

What are your favorite crafts and what's your craft space like?

We both love casting stuff, making things with paper, and attempting to up-cycle things :)

What do you craft along to?

We like working to Motown music, and you'll often find us working to shows like The (American) Office, Mad Men and The Ricky Gervais Show. We are big fans of Karl Pilkington - if you don't know who that is, you should definitely Google him!

What was the first project you ever made?

The first thing we ever made together was paper cranes. Before we became Vivid, I would say the first thing we ever made was a mess!

What are your favorite items to make?

This is a tricky question! I like to make clothes, but we are both pretty addicted to casting things and making objects. We like making fun accessories like badges and brooches too, which often become products in our online shop. When we get a lot of lovely compliments on an item, we know it is worth sharing!

Which other craft blogs do you love to read?

Is there anything else you'd like to add?

Hello! It's so nice to meet you :) We are Vivid Please, or Vicky & David when we are not together. Most of the time we are joined by the hip, running around with our little pencils and pads scribbling down our ideas. We're obsessed with tiny objects, double entendres and love to experiment with anything we can get our hands on. You can read up on our daily adventures and discover more of our tutorials on our blog over at and take a peek at our products at We love to make new friends so be sure to say hi if you're popping by! We really hope you enjoy our tutorials this week :D It has been a real honor being a Crafty Superstar on Cut Out + Keep, we'd like thank you so much for having us and for all of your support! Enjoy xox

What's your favorite...

TV Show
We are addicted to tv! Our current top 3 are Bob's Burgers, New Girl and 2 Broke Girls. We quite like trashy tv and documentaries too. Oh, and you can't beat a bit of David Attenborough!
We are massive fans of the Foo Fighters, but we also love Martha Reeves & The Vandellas. We managed to meet them after one of their shows and we got her to sign one of our tote bags. It was the best day ever!
In the UK we would have to say Blackpool, which is a classic British sea side town. It is a bit run down now and pretty tacky, which only made us fall in love with it! In America, we would have to say New York (of course!)
Amilie, but we really like early films made in colour too as they are so pretty to watch!
Where The Wild Things Are. Hands down.
Mint green (or seafoam if you're a vintage lover!)
Any kind of junk food... And a lot of sugary sweets!
