Pretty much all of it! While I love scrapbooking and making cards, I have way too much stuff! I am cleaning out my mothers home right now as she has moved to a retirement community and she had so many hobbies! I have cross-stitch books, thread, sewing stuff everywhere, stained glass making supplies (including a glass saw), over 100 bottles of paint for crafting, lots of wood shapes and wood (and a band saw) and a ceramic kiln with shelves, stilts, and cones. NO ONE WANTS ANY OF IT! I have sold a few things (for pennies on the dollar, I might add) and I don't know what I will do with all this stuff! I have contacted nursing homes, schools, hospitals, and community centers. It is awful. I can't even give alot of it away.
Every time I look in my craft room, I feel nauseated.

If I die tomorrow, I guess my family will feel the same way about me. Note to self: start getting rid of stuff I don't use anymore.

I admit it, my name is Marsha and I have a paper addiction. I use it very seldom. I have a set of sparkling h20s that I got talked in to buying from a stamp store lady. She made it look so cool. I have a lot of dauber duos that I keep moving around my area and never use. I have a lot of embroidery thread that I was going to use and hardly ever did, a lot of pearl X that I hardly use any more ... I think everyone will have things they don't use and could sell but it just isn't worth the effort.
I may be interested in the h2o's! I love mine, I use them frequently. PM me if you want to part with them.

Dauber duos?! I totally forgot about those. I got a set or two years ago on QVC and I liked them for scrap booking. But the lids would not stay on, made a mess everywhere so out they went!

I also have regrets on so much stuff I bought and never used. I don't have a craft room to work in. Plus my family wasn't too supportive of my crafting hobby. This year I gave away a lot to a friend's niece. I still have "way too much" left. I have to realize if it hasn't been used this year it needs to go. "Some Day" isn't one of the days of the week. The ironic thing is I don't even miss what I gave away.

I'm a scrapbooker and cArd maker since 2001, so I have so so many regrets. Most of the sbing regrets I have purged already except for all of the various Quickutz supplies. If you have not been in this hobby for awhile you would cringe at what I paid for those tools and various alphabets. Basically most never or rarely used. Now my biggest regrets are my Silouette and my Copic markers. The silhouette is a great tool but to use it to its full capacity you have you be a lot more computer savvy than me. I much prefer manual die cutting and have used my big shot a ton. The Copics are regrets because I basically don't like the look of colored images...though there are some true artists who make that look nice, it's not me and reminds me of a kids coloring. I also don't like water coloring but thank goodness didn't invest a lot in those supplies.

Current regret--Distress Crayons. Probably just me or unrealistic expectations.

Mmm, maybe. But I've met quite a few people, including instructors, who are not enamored. So you're in good company. I'm probably going to donate or sell mine. And I do love other Distress products.

bjeans I really like your slant on documenting. For me it also seems like work, others love it. I too went into the card making hobby thinking it wouldn't stick but two years later I'm still enjoying it. When it stops being fun I'll give it all to a friend and move on. The buying is a little bit of a problem. So much of this papercraft stuff wags its tail that I finally unsubbed some blogs that were a little too wonderful.

"wags its tail" Haha! That is so perfect!

And yes, others love it, but if we're square pegs, why try to force ourselves into roundness, even if beautiful from afar?

In search of my square,

When I first started scrapbooking, being new, I bought and wanted everything, so over the years, I have sold some things, but mostly have given a ton of stuff away. I can't say that I regret buying my Gypsy, I do regret linking my cartridges to it though because if I ever want to get rid of it, I wouldn't want to get rid of my cartridges too Live and Learn

The SU ink pad carousel - took up way too much room on my desk

The crimper way back when

in the late 90's or early 2000's SU had these circle and oval cutters that were kind of like a spirograph - I never did master them

I'm kind of regretting getting matching dies whenever they were available now that I have a SnC

anything watercolor - I can make mud in the backyard for free

Blendabilities, blends, and the occasional spectrum noir or shin han (I love my copics too much and the others just collect dust)

You can take them off the wheels and turn them into long, thin, stamps. They take up less room that way, too!

I read the first ten pages...this is a fun thread! And after looking around my craft area I am adding:

fun flock
decorative edge scissors
colored embossing powders (I only use black and clear)
Any type of paint
Brusho (bought the SU set and only like the orange)
Most colored stamp pads - I really only use black and copics
twine, wire, and most ribbons
and the grand prize.....mulberry paper. I think that's what it was called. You got it wet and tore it and it left feathery edges? I have a ton of it in every color imaginable and haven't used it in 10 or 15 years. Don't know what I was thinking.

So agree with these!
I gave all my edged scissors to a friend's daughter.
I did keep the fun flock, because it takes up so little room. I just store it with all my colored embossing powders. I keep thinking I will make the most adorable Easter card with a little fuzzy chick covered in yellow fun flock. But seeing as I have not made Easter cards in a decade...that never happened.

Everything else on your list, I love and actually use.
It all depends on personal style. I do a lot of mixed media so my supplies find new and unintended uses

I can't let go on my crimper, it reminds me of when I first started stamping However a purchase from last year that I regret is the WRMK Fuse and it's accessories. I used it once and it's been on the wayside ever since! A few years ago I went a bit nuts over the Sew Easy and then the Stamp Easy handles and rollers. I never used them! Both of those I regret. Oh - and also the mini stamp platform I think by Hampton Art - it's a pretty teal color. It was out during the whole patent pending battle before it got pulled/ It's just so basic and has no frills at all. I haven't bought a new platform yet, but it's probably going to be Tim Holtz's platform.

This thread is like the Phoenix rising from the ashes! It was started TEN years ago and people are still having similar regrets. I guess this hobby is just loaded with impulse purchases!

Yes, I really won't buy any more tools until I see at least 2 people use them and then see if they work like I do. I don't like anything too complicated or that requires a bunch of accessories.

I have sold so many things on eBay over the years - mostly tools and wood stamp sets. My problem is that I often think I have to have something in every color it comes in before I have even mastered the first one -- case in point, Tim Holtz distress inks. What was I thinking - I don't like messy techniques.

One successful case of whittling down from many to just one - decorative edge scissors - I have only kept the extra long deckle one - and I use it quite often. For all the other edges, punches work best.

This thread will live forever. Punches, pan pastels, and crimpers. Had to have, never used, and need to go out in the next purge. I like to think about all the things that came out that I resisted buying, like a laminator, an electronic shape cutter, and distress crayons. Now that there is so much out there to choose from it’s getting easier to sort out the have to have vs the probably not. I know I’m not falling for one more glue, pen form or bottle. There’s a new best ever glue every month.

Gel pens! I just tried some of mine out, and I bet 99 percent of them are dryed up. I can try beating the tip on paper and see if that helps. (Not right now, hubby is sleeping! lol.) And the funny thing is that two inexpensive little sets *one was Hello Kitty, have held up better than the more expensive ones. I think a lot of my Glaze ones have dried up, but some of my Jelly Roll ones are still working. I bet I am going to be pitching a lot of dried up pens!
I probably bought too many markers and too many stickers. But I love markers, and stickers are so tempting!

My regrets would be cheap off brand items, especially punches and a huge stack of really ugly scrapbook paper because the other side was white so why not. Umm because I'm not a scrapbooker and rarely use 12 x 12, also because I know the ugly is there and just cannot get myself to use it.


I think I just found something else that can go into my get rid of it box, the punches are already in said box.


I love, love, love gel pens! That being said they are probably my biggest paper crafting nemesis, even gave them up for a number of years. Got sucked back in recently because of adult coloring books and am in love again and promising to never give them up again

... that is until I have to start tossing them when they quit working. Hear that hamster wheel squeaking, yep that's me.

Thanks for reviving this thread! It's fun to look back at early posts to see what products tossed came back or came back in slightly different form --documenting the craft market merry-go-round. Most posters are practical (I'm not); they got rid of what they weren't currently using that took up space. I figure out ways to make more space and justify it by "thinking ahead." If I don't use it now, I allow room for artistic growth; maybe if I keep plodding away at this, I'll learn to use what I'm now having trouble with. Or I'll have some new brilliant idea for using it. Sometimes I actually buy for a future skill level and that prods me to try harder, to learn more. If that doesn't work I probably won't know it as I am aging along with my craft supplies. But this way I'm fully protected against regrets!

I agree! This thread revamped at just the right time, because I was cleaning out boxes from storage (from crafting 10 years ago) and thought OH MY, did I buy this? Why? LOL!
Some of my purchases were inexperience - not impulse - like I'd see a card and say I want to make that! And need all the stuff to make it.

Wrong.

*Eyelets - just. No.
*The Crop-o-Dile to go with ↑ (The kids use it now to punch holes for school paper!)
*The Clip It Up by Simply Renee ... mine refused to stand up right. ever. Donated!
*The Stamp a ma jig - used it maybe once!

Oh what a fun trip down memory lane ............ I'm so much more frugal and thoughtful now

- WRMK Fuse
- Silhouette (great machine - e-crafting isn't my cuppa)
- Various jigs: 1) Thingama whatever it's called , 2) black rubber mat for perfect card layering and 3) Perfect Paper Mini Layers tools.
- Subscribing to Studio Calico SB subscription for too long. Beautiful kits to build up a stash. It took a long time to break them down, save what I wanted (not much), and put together many 9x12 zip bags of embellishments, stamps, dies and paper for donation.
- Lots of organizing stuff like large ArtBin boxes (just say no to hinged boxes!) and clear acetate card covers that only cover the outside of cards.
- Distress crayons (gave away; vastly prefer Gelatos), Distress markers and Sharpie Markers. Very nice - just never reach for them.

I'm sure there's more.

My challenge for the WTUI this week was to dust off our crimpers if we still had them (corrugated card or paper as a backup option). There are some great cards in the gallery. This one from Holstein is particularly WOW: WT683 Farmhouse by Holstein - at Splitcoaststampers. Makes me glad I bought a new crimper last year. I think my old one was a dud from the get-go and I did regret it till I realised that they weren't all like that.

I like using my crimper to crimp a piece of card stock to add into the envelope with a card that isn't flat. It kind of helps protect the goodies on the card and make it a little smoother for mailing.

I do that too! I like eyelets better since I got the silent setter. Got tired really fast of all the racket from banging on a hammer! I still haven't used them much lately though.

Oh my gosh, what a great tip! My daughter bought me a crimper when she was in high school, and she's a mom of two girls now! I still bring it out now and again but never thought to use it when I need a little bit of card padding for mailing.

Ugh, my most unused purchases are all those printed ribbons I bought years ago and NEVER use! In fact, I don't use ribbon at all anymore, unless I make a point to..much prefer twine. Also don't use most of my patterned papers, but have recently started making envelopes out of them. I have waaaaaay more ink pads than I could use in two lifetimes but can't bear to toss them or give them away, except to my daughter and granddaughters. Also, the deco scissors seem to have been multiplying in the cupboard for the past 15 years, and I rarely use them. Loose glitter is pretty much unloved, and I have a lot of wood mounted alphabet stamps that continue to haunt me.

Some of my purchases were inexperience - not impulse - like I'd see a card and say I want to make that! And need all the stuff to make it.

Wrong.

*Eyelets - just. No.
*The Crop-o-Dile to go with ↑ (The kids use it now to punch holes for school paper!)
*The Clip It Up by Simply Renee ... mine refused to stand up right. ever. Donated!
*The Stamp a ma jig - used it maybe once!

Oh what a fun trip down memory lane ............ I'm so much more frugal and thoughtful now

I'm finally using a Crop-a-dile - to insert eyelets! That said, it's for just one limited and rarely done project: the top of some bookmarks to insert ribbon or twine if I don't laminate the bookmarks. I've also used it for punching holes but I don't remember why.

Crop-a-Dile, Stamp-a-Majig, stampin wheels (both regular and jumbo sizes), washi tape (never sticks and stays for me!). The one thing I regret spending so much money on is...stickers! For awhile, I had them everywhere! You name it, I had it. From alphabet to a million different colors and shapes and sizes and activity...I had a sticker (or 10!) for it. Finally one day I unloaded a whole bunch on my son's elementary school and the rest went to a place that stocks after school programs and art classes for kids. It was very freeing to do this!

Believe it or not, I still use my CM Cutting System from time to time when I need a different shape that my dies just can't do. I don't think I will ever part with that.

Never really got into the whole brads/eyelet thing.

Great thread to see resurrected!
