Default What is the one SU set you wish you hadn't bought???

Just wondering if anyone else out there has ever bought a rubber stamp set from SU and then never used it. I have bought a couple like that, and I know if I sell them I will wish I had them back. The one that I thought looked really cute, and had to have, and never have used it is - oh man, I forgot the name. It's the one with the shopping cart, wagon, and two other things with wheels. I guess I probably wouldn't miss this one, LOL! Let me know.

For me it's Favorite Friends. I think I've used it once. At the time I thought it was so adorable, but once I got it I just couldn't get excited about the cards I was making with it.

Yep, never could make a card out of that set. I traded it.
Gotta love our BST section here for rotating the sets you don't use.

Like it a Latte. I just can't get inspired with it. As soon as I can I'll be selling it.

Hmmm...only one!?!? I have about 15 that come to mind.

If I can only pick one I would have to say....

mixed bouquet

I see fabulous cards all the time...when I use this set it looks like a 4 year old attacked my card with markers.

And to answer the OP, Looks Like Spring. I just couldn't do anything with it. So I traded it to a new, happy home and never looked back!

The one the OP is talking about is The Wheel Thing and that would have to be the one I had to have and have yet to do anything I like with it

I have a few as well. Am looking to unload them to a loving home soon. A non-stamp item I purchased and regret is my ink caddy. Hoping to move that to a new home soon too!

Same here, though even dd is not thrilled with it.
Funny how folks have said noteworthy--mine hardly ever gets put away since I use it so much.

Yes, I probably need to list it, plenty of sets I'd rather have! I had a set from a different mini - Long Time Friend. I loved it, had to have it............then found it really hard to use, again, couldn't get the inspiration. I sold that one to a friend.

Figures of Speech. It looked SO versatile etc etc and so far the main use I like for it has been on tags. I made like two nice cards total with it, and I just hope those haven't helped sucker anyone else into getting this set.

It's interesting to see some of my fave stamp sets listed here.

The Wheel Thing. I love that set and can't seem to stop using it.

I have quite a few. Shapes and Shadows, Treat Yourself, Something to Celebrate, Collage Alpha...the list goes on.

That was funny. Maybe Kameron was the one who attacked your card with markers.

i hate the ink caddy thing too; i bought it because my friend raved about it. it's heavy, feels wobbly, doesn't spin that great, and the bottom with the pad is all gross because the weight has jacked it up...
i don't like the girlfriends set... and believe it or not, i don't really like gorgeous grapevines; i like that it's a two step stamper; and i like the cards it makes, i just don't personally like using it...

"Farm Fresh" I didn't read the words before I bought them. The puns are pretty dumb. I was new to SU and didn't know that I could have traded them for a different set.

The one I have the most frustration with is Best Blossoms. Technically, I didn't buy it, since it was a SAB set. I saw tons of beautiful cards with it - had to have it - still haven't come up with anything except trash-worthy creations.

OUCH! Well I have to say is....dah dah dah.. Sweet Shapes. I also have a basic shapes>? I wanna say that was part of suggested items from the demo kit. I have used the words from sweet shapes and that is it. The blocks in the background are so yuck for me. I have to admit that paisley and polka dot are hard too, but I am sooooooo trying to make it work because I just love the stamps, but I become completely inept when I try to use them I guess it's a RubberFreeze! haha

Sketch an Event

It was one of my first sets, and I thought it was cool because it looks so versatile, but it's a bit too simple for me. Oh well...I think it will end up in the kids' stash

I didn't buy it technically, because it came in my demo kit and I didn't trade it, but I can't do anything with "Heartfelt Thanks". I wish it would go away! I really wish it would end up on the retired list, because then I would have a reason to get rid of it!
