I remembered this post when I got home last night and looked to see what I had that was egregiously unused. Staring me in the face (and taking up lots o' room) was the Sizzix Big Shot, which I bought at a LSS garage sale about 6 years ago. Haven't used it once.
Well for me it would have to be Embossing Powders. They looked like such a great idea at the time of purchase but I just don't seem to get around to using them.
And Ribbons.... and yet I keep buying them. So pretty all the colours and patterns. My BF and scrap buddy is always on my back about using them and you can be sure every challenge kit she makes me , yup theres a stash of ribbons.
My fastenator!! I really wanted the thing, got home with it, tried it twice, and haven't used it since. It didn't staple the way a normal stapler does, and it made bigger holes than a regular stapler.
Color me unimpressed with it!
I could never get that thing to line up right, so I use the fastenator staples without the fastenator. Just push them through the paper (you may have to poke a starter hole in thicker paper), then fold back the ends like you would a brad.
My never used items include a few foam stamps, some glitter, a texture hammer and paddle punches.
There is a whole shop full of stuff in my room not used yet.....or only used once or twice.
I have a fastenator....what a waste of $$$
I have a zutterbind it all........don't think I have made one mini albumn with it
I have an I rock tool......where is that now? I just glue the little gems on....much quicker
Slice elite............it drives me nuts.......never cuts properly.....so cards that have never been used.....
Vagabond.....never used......but it only arrived last week. ( why do they sell them with no cord? Seems madness to me.....but it will get a test drive this week if I can find the correct cord to plug him in!!)
Gotta ask....did you look in the compartment on the side of the machine where you are supposed to store the cord?
I kind of went crazy over the summer buying a bunch of stuff. Some stuff I planned to use, others I saw a video or something and wanted to try it but didn't. But most of the things I don't use (tools) are because they were on clearance, I had to have them, but don't really need them.
My xyron has never been used, nor has my X. I got a set of circle cutters and used it once. I have a bunch of cricut carts still waiting for the perfect LO. I keep buying chipboard, but I'm intimidated on how to paint it or whatever and worried I'll ruin it. I have some perfect pearls, still in the packaging for 6+ months. I don't really buy stamps but I have picked up a few that I had ideas for, and haven't used them. I picked up some colored craft wire... haven't used it either.
I do have tons of embellies and papers and stuff but I don't really count that because I like to have a stash so I don't have to go to the store all the time.
I love my gypsy. I don't use my cricut at all without it.
I watched a couple of videos on you tube to figure out some stuff.
Welding really is easy once you get it. Type 2letters. Scoot one of them over so it's touching the other one. On the second tab, hit the weld button, then the eyeball to see it. What's grey should be where the letters touched. The grey parts don't cut.
