I saw this thread on the cricut message board and the answers were so interesting so I thought I would post it here. Mine would definitely be my Ripping Rulers, stickers and up until a few weeks ago my gypsy. IT SAT FOR A LONG TIME before then I have been using it alot lately and really like it now.....TFS....

Everything now since I went digital!! It makes me cringe to think of the wasted money

Mine would be the coluzzle (or however it's spelled). I tried to figure out how to use it, broke the blade somehow and decided it was junk and not worth the effort so I tossed it. (Not a big loss as it was on clearance and I had a coupon that also covered sale items, so it only cost a couple bucks).

Mine would be my YourStory. I got it with the blue expression bundle because it was cheaper and I thought I'll really use that.
So far Nope haven't used it once except to pick it up to dust it off.

Thank you guys for answering I was starting to wonder if I was the only one with buyers remorse since I had so many views and no replies...lol I know if I had started scrapbooking before the cricut came out my list would be extremely long since I tend to have a shopping addiction!!

I should add the Your story to my list as well I only used it once for a brag book for my mom, now it just collects dust(at least it's in the box though!)

Scraparatus or however you spell it. I already had an eyelet setter then got a cropadile.

The other would be jumbo gromet setter - a friend used it and it looked so cool. Never used mine.

Of course there is the ton of stuff that I like but never used. I really need to try to buy with a purpose and not because I like it.

I regret all the corny looking die cuts and some stickers from way back yonder when I first started scrapping. There are things that I will never use!

I STILL have not used ANY of the Glimmer Mist bottles I have purchased. I also keep buying stamps and hardly ever use them.

yeah -- I had a ton of stickers. Gave most to my 4 year old neighbor. LOL

My biggest waste were the curvy cutters (think that's what they are called). I could never get them to cut anything.

We have seen "biggest buying regret" threads but you worded your question as "unused"... and while I can't believe I am saying this... my most unused scrapbooking purchase for the buck was my Cricut. I don't regret buying it but I hardly ever use it. (I am also "weighing" my answer based on cost.)

PS you know it's bad when I realized I use older, unpopular, scrapping tools like deco scissors, paper crimpers, Fastenator...MORE than my Cricut.

I will take the stickles and glimmer mists off your hands ladies! I would have to say the design runner. I use it but not as often as I had hoped.

It is definately stickers and my Slice. I am not happy with the way my Slice cuts and the stickers I purchased when I began scrapbooking. I plan to donate the stickers to a preschool after I get them all rounded up. Needless to say I do buy stickers anymore and even though I get tempted, I will not buy any cards for my Slice.

I changed it from regretted to unused because regret seemed like such a bad word in scrapbooking terms!!!!!

Fastenater ~ had to have it, never use it.

Also have a thing called a clipper or something. You put these plastic clips in them and attach them to the top of paper. They have different sayings. Never use it.

I bought myself some curvy cutters for my birthday a few years ago and I tried to use them, but they were so hard to control and difficult to use. They started collecting dust, but I sold them on eBay and got some money back for them.

Also, I got really excited about tearing tools and bought a bunch of them. I used them on one album, but right now I don't even know where they are.

Mine would be my Slice. But one of my New Year;s resolutions is to learn how to use the thing.
