Saturday's Stix2 Demonstration was excellent. It was very well attended and everyone loved the "make and take" sessions. Karen Mackie, our wonderful demonstrator for the day. She got us playing with the Glue Guns, Glitter & Beads, Double Sided Sticky A4 Sheets, Die Cut Stencil Sheets, some lovely stamps from Woodware, and so much more.

Created by Crafters

A Maze of Memories had a demonstration with Michelle on 26th April and showed both the staff and customers how to use our products and provided some amazing inspiration to everyone.

Here at Stix2 we love customer feedback and enjoy hearing about your experience and seeing what you have done with our products.

That's exactly what Amaze of Memories have done. On their blog they have shown a lot of projects they did which were made by Inspired by Michelle.

One that we particularly liked was the Bookmark made by Denise.

Here you can see she has used the Double Sided Adhesive Sheet with Iridescent Glitter over her stamped image giving this a lovely shimmering affect. Over the image she has then added colour on top with her promarkers and keeping this safe in the Bookmark Sleeve.

Well done Denise! We think this is fabulous!
