We all have those stamp sets that we bought and later thought..."what was I thinking?" Ditto with accessories! So your challenge this week is to dust off your least favorite set and do something with it! Bonus points if you can incorporate your least favorite accessory. Double bonus points if you can incorporate STAPLES into your project!
This challenge was inspired by the threads floating around last week about least favorite sets and accessories. I was already planning to post a challenge about your loneliest stamp set, when Lisa62 pm'ed me with the suggestion about the staples, as staples apparently are the top of the least favorite accessory list for a lot of people. (Thanks Lisa!) So I decided to double the challenge.
When you upload, please put TLC98 in the keyword section when you upload, and then post a link to your card here in this thread. If you are new to the challenges, or need help uploading or linking, click here.
As always, I am in search of suggestions for techniques for future TLCs! Please PM with suggestions and a link to the directions and/or a sample if you can
I missed all those threads about least favorite sets and accessories. Hmmm - I'll have to think since I rarely buy a stamp set that I don't like. I might have to go with least used set because I love all my sets. (The one set I didn't like, I gave away. lol!) Now, staples . . . I'm surprised. I LOVE using staples! It's beads that drive me bananas! Guess my card is gonna have to have some beads. LOL! Thanks for the challenge!
Oh, my! I think I have lots of those sets - usually it's the free ones that I'm not that crazy about. I like using staples, but I know a lot of people think they make the card look cheap, so I don't use them very often. I will have to play later. Going to my sister's house today and I need to cut all my cs for a workshop. Thanks, Beth.

Hmmmm this is a hard one for me. I love stamps, I have alot I have never used But I can't honestly say I don't like them. embellishments is another story. I'll work from that angle. Great Challenge Beth.
Location: Oklahoma...State (OSU) We love 'em even when they lose, and we're never disappointed!
I've only received one free set so far, so I feel terrible, but like Melody I'd have to say it is in my top five least fav. No staples though....I will try to get around to deciding my absolute least fav set and stapling a card with it like crazy.
wow....least favorite, eh????????? Must put on my thinking cap........picture me puzzled........well.....I know just which drawer of stamps I will go into....but....which set????????????????????????????????????/
I have been stamping all my stamps onto poster board so when I want to make a card I can look at them to see what I have. Just reading the names,I can't always remember what they are. Anyway, I have some I've never used, but don't know which is my least favorite. Will have to decide and try to make a card later. I have a few staples, but have never used them.
thanks Beth, I have this book of vellum envelops that you need to cut out (pain). they looked so cool in the store, but whenever I try to use them, they look kinda tacky. I also used the staples and some ribbon I forgot I had.
Here's a quick card I made. I realized I have several sets in the running for "least favorite", so I will try to do another card with another set later. Maybe I can work in staples (which I actually LIKE using) and some other accessories on the next card. Thanks for the challenge, Beth!
I bought frolicking frogs because a friend liked frogs so much, but I thnk I have only used it once or twice since I got it. Also just had to have fancy fibers and never use them. Don't hate staples but don't use them very often either. So here is my card for today.
Hmmmm........which least favorite set would work with Pearl Ex (on of those "I can't figure out why I bought it since I can't figure out how to use it" accessories!!).............this puzzle will hopefully be completed a little later!! Thanks Beth!!

I had 2 sets that popped into mind, so I used them both. And I used glitter! I love glitter, but it's usually so much easier to just use stickles or other non messy sparlky things! So I got a lot of neglected things used today, thanks Beth!
I hope to have more time to play again later!
