Haha, ONE thing?? I'd say the item that I'm most itching to try but haven't had a chance yet is the set of metallic Distress stains that are sitting here on my table. I haven't even taken the plastic wrap off them yet!

I have some ribbons that I've never used...I buy pretty or cute ribbons but I hardly ever use ribbon on my layouts....
I also have some stamps that I've never used, some papers, some markers....lots of little things!

I'm going to get rid of them in a LSS garage sale this fall...

My Tattered Angels mist.
I bought a bottle about 2 years ago and have never used it!
I wonder if it's even any good anymore. Well, I guess it doesn't matter because I can't find the darn thing!

I have two sets of Lindy's...and they aren't cheap, but I'm afraid to use them. I have a set of paint, then just got a set of embossing powder. The embossing powder I have an excuse for...it just arrived today, but who knows when I'll ever use it.

I have a Creatopia that I never use. I know it works, but the way I'm situated right now, it's too hard to get out and my little Cuttlebug lives right at my feet, so it's much handier.

I have several nesties I've never used. Lots of stickles I haven't used, but I have all the colors and just haven't needed to use them all yet...but I will.

Lots of other things. I tend to use the same stuff over & over since it takes less brain power than learning how to use the new stuff. Shopping is so much easier than figuring out how to use what I buy~Judy

I bought a set of chalks from Michaels for $3 about six months ago - it's still in its wrapper, but I don't feel too bad about that since it was so cheap. And I was DYING to have the sew ribbon, but I haven't taken that out yet either.

I have several sets of acrylic stamps that I just had to have and have never used them. I am gonna be doing a card crop soon and I hope to break these out and make good use of them. I also have several embossing powders that I got thinking it would be my new thing to do and havent touched them other than to look at them and think such pretty colors...

I started a thread a few weeks back about my unused cuttlebug...I have owned it for at least 6 months and only just tried it this week in a LO. It was nice, but I need more embossing folders and some dies to make it really worth the while, and $$$ is so tight right now, that's not gonna happen. I bought a bone folder, dont make cards; bought lots of pink themed paper (cause its my favorite color) and I have a boy; circus-themed paper and we've never been to a circus but might someday...tons of stamps and no ink pads (!). Stupid stuff, that I will maybe do someday, things I have heard others rave about and have to have...and on and on... What can I say, I like to feed my addictions for shopping and scrapping.

About 40 jars of MIcro Glitter at $7.00 a jar.

So far I have played with my embossing folders but haven't actaully used one yet.

Twinkling H2Os - bought a ton of those. Never used them.

I have about 12 Cricut Cartridges, only used 3.

Bought tons of Fiskars, MS and Success punches and border punches. Used about 10% of them.

Oh yeah, three Cricut cartridges came with my machine, but I've never used them. I need one in the machine so SCAL works, but I've never cut anything with a cartridge. As far as paper, well yeah...lots of that I haven't used, which explains the big stack(s) of paper :>) Lots of stamps and ink pads, but I think I've used one stamp...but I keep buying them. Lots of good intentions, but never enough time~Judy

Martha Stewart scoring board/kit, still in the pkg.
The spellbinder Wizzard machine.
Fiskars shape cutter with the templates.
A whole set of Paper Edger Scissors - Set of 12 Pattern Edgers with Oak Stand.

Im sure there are more things but this is what I could think of now.

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!!)

My handy-dandy kitchen torch! I love it! I torch creme brulee and bananas foster and toast meringue with it. I could probably use it to roast marshmallows. The only thing that intimidates me is refilling it. But once that's done, I torch everything in sight

In regards to the Vagabond...Open the compartment on the end, it is made especially to store the cord. It is the end opposite of the side where the power cord is plugged in.

As someone else explained below this post, the cord is stored in a compartment on the opposite end of the machine from where it would plug in.

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.

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.

I have no idea what a rock tool is!

Yes, I have a Fiskars Crimper, my mother-in-law let me borrow that actually belongs to my sister-in-law. I think I will use it.

Stamps...I know I will use and how I will use them but have not yet.

I never buy anything without having an idea of how I will most likely use it.

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.

My Gypsy! I HATE IT!!!! I just thank the stars that it was a gift and I didn't shell out for it. Com'on a 74 page downloadable booklet. And, I still don't know how to "meld" letters for words!

I really don't like my Gypsy very much either. I've welded a little bit with it but it is so cumbersome.

I have a friend who uses her constantly and makes beautiful things with it but she understands it much better than I do I guess.

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.

I got the gypsy when it first launched, tried to figure it out, got frustrated, and then put it away ...

fast forward TWO years, a lovely lady on this site got a gypsy, fell in love with it and talked about the amazing things she could do with it ...

I mentioned my frustration with the thing, she pm'ed me and I gave her my phone number ... she then called me and gave me a fantastic phone tutorial

Fast forward to today ... I still don't use it as much as I could, but I find it very helpful for certain things, and still bring it to my crops

I think youtube is one of the best resources for tutorials ... written instructions just don't do it ... if you see it in action, you'll be a maven in know time

Kathy - I'm behind on gallery love for you and will get over there in the next few days - leaving town in an hour or less so it may be first of the week when I get back (my mom doens't have internet).

Love the crossword layout - absolutely love it!

I definitely want to "lift" this but don't guarantee results like yours! Yours is gorgeous!

My circle cutter. I don't have very much success with it. I think you are supposed to use a glass cutting mat, and I still haven't bought one. I am happy with the mat i have, and I can't justify the cost of a glass mat for something I don't use.

I use a glass cutting board, but you could also use the glass from a picture frame (edges taped). Just make sure you buy one a little larger than your largest circle.

It seems to me that you don't really need the gypsy if you use the Cricut Craft Room on the computer, right? I can weld and all that kind of stuff from here. Is there anything the gypsy can do that craft room can't?

This thread is so funny!

I have some of the same unused stuff, and some of the stuff ya'll have posted as never having used I couldn't do without!

My never used:
- Fascinator

- Mists (but I keep buying them, and even made a few of my own - what's up with that?)

-Stamps (but those, I will use. Just haven't had the right page.)

-Cricut cartridges (again, I will, just haven't had the right page)

-Doodlebug flock (what was I thinking?! I doubt this will ever get used, but I can't seem to part with it)


Maybe we need a "use the stuff you have unopened" challenge or something!

Several Cricut cartridges, glitter, a card kit I bought in Aug. I spent $14.95 and I don't even understand why I bought it. I'm going to a convention later this week and I will not allow myself to buy stuff like this again.
