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!
When I first got my Cropadile, it was because I had a lot of eyelets and never used them because it was so hard to set those little stinkers. Once I got the Cropadile I made it a point to use the eyelets and now I love eyelets again. Well, I don't actually love them, but at least I use them. I used them on tags but also in the corners of card mats or sentiments. I also use my CM cutting system every now and again, when I need a circle or oval size that my dies don't cut. I resisted buying a Big Shot for years, and now that I have one my CM cutting system is gathering dust for the most part.

AWK!! I think most of us regret all those piles of stickers that we bought way back when. I keep finding more sheets of stickers every time I go through my stash, even though I've given away a ton to my granddaughters, the senior center, the neighborhood school, and even sold them at a garage sale.I've tried using them in creative ways by sanding and inking them, or making backgrounds with layered papers and stamping but they still look too much like stickers.

I like to use stickers on envelopes for a little extra fun factor.

I still use my Crop-a-Dile and wouldn't like not to have it. DH used it and some old WRMK hardware to improve a pair of motorbike boots just recently.

Just an FYI if you still have the crimper. I love to use it in place of ribbon. I crimp a thin piece of paper as an accent on a card and it looks lovely.

Well, I beat the black gel pen on paper the other night, rolled the ball pen tip sideways on the paper to rub off dried ink, and put a lighter under for just a few seconds to loosen the ink in the pen, and it started working again! Took a lot of effort, but was worth it. Hooray!!! Now I only have to do that maybe thirty more times, lol...

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!
