    Now that we have favorite lists I thought it would be interesting to see what aren't so great, maybe it will help others make purchasing decisions.

    My worst tools are:
    1. Xryon Design Runner - good idea, but it needs some big changes. I returned mine.
    2. Stickers - I don't like the flatness of them. I do like more of a 3d object that has a sticker back.
    3. Decorative Scissors - I can't cut a straight line with them.

    I agree, I don't use my decorative scissors as much as I use to.

    HHMMM, I haven't been scrapping for very long. But I have decided that I do not like repositionable stickers because they won't stay where I put them unless I use a glue stick on them. I also don't like alphabet stickers either. I can never make them straight or centered!

    flat stickers are not my thing either

    I HATE glue sticks! what you use them on WILL pop off eventually

    I also dont like the deco scissors, a big waste of money for me

    Oh a hint on the letter stickers

    One thing is to use them crooked intentionally! That way they look like you meant it!

    If you want a straight line, put them on the very edge of a ruler so they hang mostly off the edge of he ruler, then attach them all at once to the page, laying the ruler down & stick th stickers down then carefully remove the ruler you get a very straight look!

    I think the worst tool I have is a circle cutter. It is hard to hold the base of it in one spot while trying to cut a circle that looks like a circle.

    Hi everyone.

    I think I would have to say Decorative scissors.. I can't cut anything my you always can see where I picked up the scissors.

    I totally agree with the gule stick thing I was using one last night and yeah I don't know what was going on but everytime I guled something one part of it would pop up and I would try to gule that down and then the other side it was a lose- lose situation. and my sticky squares where to big for the letters I was guleing on......
    Does anyone use something other then a gule stick or small skinny things such as die-cut letters or thin boarders?

    Another tip or sticker letters is wax paper... same idea as the ruler I guess, line up your sticker half on and half off.
