Who knows, sometimes I think they invent things as a joke just to see if anyone WOULD buy it. I threw out like four packs of the staples the other day. Wonder if anyone uses that silly thing! LOL

Hi there KalaKitty. Consider it done. PM me your address and I will happily send them to you for free. It is good to know that someone will get some enjoyment from them. Look forward to hearing from you.

While I agree with many hings listed here, stickers, cheap paper, stamps that were a good deal not ones I LOVED, the big thing for me is all the crap I bought to cut circles!! I think I've tried almost every kind of circle cutting thingie. They all suck. Yes I've watched videos, held here, not there, stood up, sat down, held my tongue just so, used cheaper paper, used more expensive paper, attached paper to cutting surface, stuck adheisive on cutter itself, used different or newer blades, but nope, doesn't work like I want it to. I'll stick to punches, or big shot dies and if I'm desperate the coluzzle thingie. The circles arn't perfect but I'm less likely to chuck the thing across the room!!

I can tell you that our local Goodwill is doing pretty well off my scrapping/stamping donations this week!

I don't want to say that I regret buying anything. I always had a good reason to purchase it at the time (I keep telling myself that). I'm usually sorry that I bought the paper packs. 50% off or buy one get one free. Either way I have tons of paper left that I thought would match but I couldn't find a way to use them. Some punches were bought for one purpose and never used again. I love when I get an idea, run to the store and purchase ALL the supplies needed, and then I change my mind.

Here's a fun way to use up all that pattern paper that you don't want to make cards from. Use it to make envelopes! Put the pattern on the inside, and the white outside. You would be surprised that the paper you would never, ever use for a card can make a cute envelope this way. I think any pattern is more fun than plain white inside, lol.

Here is a quick and easy tutorial to make any size envelopes very quickly.

Beside the envelopes, you can also use the white side to create your own pattern paper with stamps and ink or just stamp sentiments. I use all my "ugly" paper this way!!!!

This is a great thread! I've read all of it! Not only do we find things in our craft room that we don't use but there are also plenty of things that we bought only to be replaced at a later date by a product that does the job easier or better.

I regret the space all those punches I bought along the way take up. I am now addicted to Spellbinders so I will not buy more edge punches. Their Edgeabilities that will be available next month will take their place - and use much less space!

Cricut, gypsy and all cartridges. Waaaay to much work and I have no space for them. I let my gypsy battery "die" and that's the way it will stay. Shame.

Items I can't live without ....hmmmm....

Copic markers - THE BEST !
stamps, stamps and more stamps.

I've read on this thread that many people regret all their SU sets. I did too but I started something years ago and it has helped tremendously.
Big job if you have hundreds of stamps (as we all do ) but not too bad when starting out.
I stamp each stamp I have on blank paper and put it in a binder with catagories.... Flowers, Christmas etc etc (Actually each 8.5 x 11 piece of paper has many images)
I also have the location...box # ..... for example

I'm rambling...sorry )))

Other items I regret .....

Don't know why but I bought several scoring boards. Why ????? Only need one.

Colored ribbon on sale. None of the colors match my stuff. Much better to run white ribbon on a stamp pad a let it dry so it matches.

STICKERS !!

Flowers soft .....

I have a zillion MS punches I never use although I think I may someday ...LOL

Dollar store stuff. Seemed like a good idea at the time and the price was right but .....

Enough said I think

I regret having mine. It seemed like such a great idea at the time but I find that I don't really use that many die cuts and my BS is so much easier. I keep telling myself that once I get around to doing some scrapbooks I'll use it more. For now it just takes up a lot of space on my counter and I know if I put it away I'll never ever use it.

Me too Stamphappy1650. I wasted my money on it as well as the carts. Don't know what I was thinking. It's very versatile, true, but using a Bug or Big Shot is better for me.

I regret buying a bazillion storage cubes. You know, the ones from Michaels. In hind sight if I had it to do over again, I'd have wall mounted work stations, open shelving and an island.

Besides my Cricut I also regret thinking I had to have EVERY Martha Stewart punch produced. They were threatening to over run my tiny craft area and I had to move them into the basement. Even with Michaels coupons they were expensive so I don't want to get rid of them...but...my they are bulky !!
Just wonder how many times I will actually bother to venture downstairs to find one....hmmmmmm

Lately, I've been back and forth about the Cricut. I can go a week and not use it and then I'm on Cloud 9 when it's useful for a project. It really depends on what technique I'm into during that week. It could sit there for a few just waiting to be useful again. I will say that having it is better than wishing I had it when I need it.

I'm a bit the same with my Klic-N-Kut.

But as I always end up doing signwriting stuff for DH it is OK. It can sit and wait until my next play.

I regretted the stickers too, but have started to use them again. I did a big purge and got rid of any that I knew I would never use - donated them to my son's shool kindergarden teachers. Those that I thought I might still use, I sorted out. I also have a new trick - I rub the adhesive side with my embossing buddy to remove all of the stickiness. Then, I usually use them by popping them up on pop dots and using them like a would a diecut. Most of the time, you can't even tell it was a sticker! Here's a link to two cards where the main focal image is actually a sticker from years ago:

shower card - the umbrella is a sticker

sympathy card - the frame around the butterfly is a sticker

There are tons more in my gallery too - I have gotten a lot of satisfaction from using up those old stickers! I have committed myself to making up one card every night with one of my old stickers, and I am slowly but surely working through them.

What a fabulous idea! You need to go post that on the "Favorite Tip" thread if you haven't already! Here's the link:

DARLING cards, BTW.

Tinkerbell: Why do you dislike the Grand Calibar? I've used my Big Shot a lot and just recently bought the GC for the larger Spellbinder dies. I find that I like it because I can cut several shapes at a time. I freely admit I'm addicted to Spellbinders!!

Well, the suction cups on the bottom don't stick. I will be right in the middle of cutting it is moving around on my desk. It has a big kick back when trying to feed dies through which I don't like. It isn't as sturdily made as the Big Shot and lastly, you can't use the SU dies and other similar dies in it.

I do like the fact that you can cut several items at once, but unfortunately for me the bad out weigh the good.

Yup they are newbies to it all like to collect a few different things that they see as new although weve had them for ages.

Ive actually sold a few red ones on ebay.

I bought a bulk lot from ebay when I got my bug. I like the way they cut, just don't have room to store them so I can get to them easily.

I do prefer the more generic shapes though (which goes for all dies). Things like puppies don't get a lot of use.

Angie, even though you've read this thread, it's inevitable that you will buy something you regret buying. We all do it. It just happens because we're addicts and feel a compulsion to get the latest products. We can't help ourselve - lol.
I never tell my husband how much anything costs. It's all on a need to know basis. If the UPS or mailman delivers a package, then he needs to know ONLY if it was an inexpensive purchase. If it was alot of $, he doesn't need to know.

Well my biggest regret is cheap card stock. I went and bought a huge box cause it was on sale and now I look at it with disgust. My second regret is cheap dp because I figured I could make it work until I could get the good stuff. Now I just save up for the good stuff. Oh the trials of learning.

I've been stamping for a lot of years, so you can imagine what I've accumulated by now!! I have so much I don't use, like useless colors of paper flowers, and tons of different sized eyelets!! I too have the Fastenator...why did they invent that???

However, I recently got a Cricut, the E2, and must admit, I love it!!! So, one person's trash is another's treasure..... And ditto on loving my copics, use those above all other markers, love them the best!!!
