Cat Morley, thank you for taking time from your busy life to talk with us, I am a big fan of your work!  

So let’s talk to Cat....

Q. - What are your hobbies other than crafting?

Ans.- I love photography and exploring, so when I’m not crafting, I’m out and about with my camera trying out new places in London. A rule I try to stick to is not to go to the same place twice, which forces me to try out new places.


Q. - What are some of your favorite crafting trends?

Ans. - Last year, I fell in love chalkboard paint and ended up painting everything I possibly could with it. I love the look of the white on black. It’s also great for organizing, so I painted the lids of all the jars in my kitchen with chalkboard paint and labeled them - it makes finding the perfect spice or ingredient a breeze!


Q. - Do you have a favorite memorable moment in your craft journey?

Ans. - My favorite memory was travelling all 50 states in America for our book Around The USA In 50 Crafts Projects. I found so much inspiration in each state and crafted a souvenir or recipe inspired by each. It was a big project and took us six months to see each state but it was an amazing adventure.


Q. - What are your future plans for your business ventures? How about for you personally?

Ans. - This year, I’ve set myself a New Year’s resolution of crafting or cooking one new project a day for the site and I’m hoping this will keep me craftier than ever.


Q. - What inspires you to keep doing what you do?

Ans. - I just love making things - especially if I can craft a gift or treat for someone else. There’s nothing better than surprising someone with something you’ve made!


Q. - Can you tell us a bit more about your craft products?

Ans. - I don’t sell any craft products, I just run Cut Out + Keep, a community filled with free craft tutorials and recipes for our members.


Q. - Are there any new supplies or tools you can’t wait to try?

Ans. - I got a 3D printer for Christmas but so far I’ve only printed a Lucky Cat model. Once I get the hang of how to use it and create my own models, I think it’ll take my crafting to a whole new level!


Q. - How would you sum up your craft journey in one sentence?

Ans. - Start crafting, even if it’s something small and simple, and then see where your imagination takes you!


Q. - Is there anything you find really challenging?

Ans. - Finishing projects, I get lots of ideas and am always excited to start new projects but often get distracted with new ideas before finishing what I’m working on. I have a big bag of unfinished craft projects, so one of my New Year’s resolutions is to make a new project a day for Cut Out + Keep


Thank you once again Cat.....
