Let's turn it around!
What is the item you bought for scrapbooking that you thought was going to be great and turned out to be useless, hard to use, or just plain awful?

All those eyelet setters and hold punches you had to use with a hammer. I love my crop-a-dile.

That dang Perfect Layers thingy - I know, I know - everyone has sent me demos and instructions, but I can't get it to work right for me.

Mine is the same thing!
I must have 3 eyelet setters that were 'new and easy to use' but they all turned out to be useless. I just bought a cropadile at my weekend crop and I love it!!

To date, not 1, but 2 buckets of little foam shapes I just "had to have" from Big Lots...I've given more than half of them away and keep holding on to the rest thinking I might need these someday, but have yet to use a single one in my lo's.

LOL my most unused tool, would have to be the Coluzzle (I know I am not in the majority here), but I hate trying to trim the edges, it never looks right! And the alphabets for the Coluzzle are awful!

This is what I was going to say as well. I've played with it but I don't think I've ever used it on an actual layout or card. I've had it for over 2 years now...

The Blade Runner..I bought it several years ago when they first came out.....the only thing I've ever been able to make with it is grass ( and only on thin paper). It was a total waste of money IMHO.......I'm surprized they still sell them!

I think I try to use everything i have bought!

The only exception is those awful tape runners from Walmart. They may be cheap, but I cannot get them to work. And I hate the sound of scraping plastic as I tape stuff.

I was thinking that I didn't have one, until I just saw all the posts about the mini craft sewing machine!...I forget, because as long as I still have it, it will always make my list! (Mine is even still in the box!)



p.s. Keeping along those lines, I'd be very curious to see if there is anyone out there that actually loves or uses the product!...(Starting a new seperate Craft-Sew Thread now!...Feel free to join in!)

The LO tamplates. Thought I they would make things easier -- no they just made everything look the same.
