Just took a browse through my card gallery here and I should be shot! I can't believe how many dozens and dozens of times I've used various stamp sets and dies one time, only to put them away afterwards and forget I even have them. And worse yet, I just keep buying and buying and buying! My guess is that I'm not the only one doing this. Sigh!

Yep. Indeed you are not alone. I have dies and stamps that haven’t even been used for their first card yet. I am running out of room in my room, and I can’t seem to stop buying new things either.

I have been addicted to and buying stamps for the past year and was having the same issue... buying but not using.

Recently I reorganized my scrap room and made sure they were very easily accessible so that I would use them!
They are literally out in the open near my craft table; no excuses!

I too have had stamps that never saw the light of day after one time use! My solution, I gave them away!! Then I had more room to store the new stamps!!
Now I am more careful on what I purchase.

Considering that I recently found some stamp sets at TM that were greatly reduced in price, I will have lots of fun finding uses for them for years to come. No regrets here!

I even have unused duplicates I haven't used. Also dies.

I have a fair collection of stamps that I want to incorporate more into my scrapping (with card making on the side) but I have only done it a handful of times.
It's on my bucket list.
That being said, I did buy a cute little coffee stamp and heart stamp at M's just last week with some idea that I'd use them both.
So, you're not the only one...

I like Doreena's idea to make them more accessible. I did that with my embossing folders and die-cuts. Hoping it works!

As always, Don, you are a hoot! My daughter swears her craft room has been stocked entirely with the duplicates I have bought.

So funny and more truth than we care to thing about!!

My DIL gets all the duplicates - more so the non-used items I purged. Then I let her sell on ebay when she does not want or does not use.

And, FYI, I used 2 on my most recent layout! One of them had never been used!

Way to go Doreena!
I brought one stamp to my crop yesterday but did not use it. I'll bring it next time and make it happen.

Thanks!

I challenge you to use that stamp at least once by the end of this month!
