Hmmm... my decorative scissors. I never use them anymore. And I got a few albums that I don't really have use for anymore now that I'm switching to postbound instead of strap hinge. I feel like that's such a waste of money,

Oh, and EYELETS. I never figured out how to use eyelets properly, and I have a ton just sitting around!!

I totally hear you on the eyelets. I have a ton of those (cute ones, too!) and the setter and I have no clue how to do it. Sad, really. I also don't like my decorative stickers. I use them once in a blue moon, but it is hardly ever. I also have some papers that I thought I would like but I end up hating.

Oh, I have lots of stickers too! Forgot about those. I got a bunch back when I did Creative Memories exclusively, and then I took a hiatus from scrapbooking for a few years and when I went back I didn't like the stickers anymore!

I have a 12X12 lilac that I'm almost positive is CM, a 12X12 cloth light yellow that I'm not sure is CM, and a 12X12 Christmas album that is for sure CM. If any of these sound interesting to you, PM me!

I love eyelets, I can't believe some of you don't use them!!

I agree on the decorative scissors though... I have an entire spinning wheel of them and never touch them.

I have loads of stickers that I don't use. It just doesn't seem to fit in with the style I have now. Especially pink baby stickers. Also my decorative scissors. I bought those right at the beginning and have only used them for a couple of pages.

A pack of borders and frames that I will probably never ever use, and a few sticker letters.

You all should think about cardmaking as a good way to use up things you don't really use (papers, sticker, velum quotes.... that sort of thing). I started doing that! lol. and even though I now have so many cards, at least they're useful!
