eyelets, or maybe (don't throw anything at me) embossing powder and loose glitter. Pretty messy, and I am a quick scrapper, so don't take time to use these often at all.

Oh I was surprised to read embossing powder and washi tape I love both but totally understand why you do not like it.
I can also relate to the eyelets and ribbon, not always easy to incorporate

eyelets, ribbon, flowers. I rarely use flowers since there are 2 boys in the fam. I'm the only girl. I really wish they would make more star/heart shapes on stickers, wood veneer ect for my boy pages. It is getting better, but there could be so much more.

Any kind of bling or glitter, I don't like working with them. I don't really like ribbon either.

Have never used an eyelet so not sure if I like or dislike.
I LOVE anything bling but can't seem to use all the loose glitter; it's just to messy for me.
Not a fan of wood veneers even tho it's an "in" thing right now.

Eyelets -- way too much trouble.

Washi tape -- I don't get the idea of tape I have to glue down. Plus, I just don't like the look.

I love ribbon, but I realized I don't like them for layouts. I plan on using them for card making only. I also have a ton of chipboard pieces from when I first started scrapbooking and I use those the least. Hoping to gather it all and either use it or lose it.

I just used some eyelets the other day! I don't love them (boy, I used to!) but they were just what I needed to make a 'pocket' for some memorabilia. I'm not much of a glitter user...it is the herpes of craft supplies..the gift that keeps on giving!

the smaller eyelets so i got rid of them along with all my matching snaps. i did keep the larger eyelets. i like to use them for tags when i slip the ribbon through the top.

i also realized that i don't like clear stamps. and yet i have a TON of them. i will be selling off those very soon too.

i don't like working with fabric glue because it can be really messy but sometimes, that's the only adhesive that will work.

oh, and i hate dull punches. i've learned that you get what you pay for with cheapy punches.

Flowers & bling. I like the idea of both, but w/2 boys it's nearly impossible for me to incorporate them into my pages.

Mists. I really don't get the allure...and they're messy! I don't like glitter for the same reason.

For me it's probably flock or bare chipboard, sensibly I got rid of them both!

I seem to be the opposite of a lot of people. I don't like most bulky things. That includes chipboard, buttons, Thickers, wood veneers, and most metal. Surprisingly, I actually DO like eyelets, brads, ribbons, & flowers - I don't use them a LOT, but they do have their uses!

I don't like bling or glitter, but I like stamps, ink, & embossing powder. For those who said they don't like their punches - I'll be happy to take them off your hands for you; love those things!

Also I think rub-ons are pretty useless too; can't weigh in on washi tape yet since I just bought my first roll 2 days ago...ok, so I'm a "late adopter".

Punches! I have bought several different kinds, and they always hurt my hands and wrists when I use them. I love the look of them, but I can do it with the Cameo or my Cricut. Anything to save my hands all of the pain of punching!

Flowers... Ribbons and eyelets I only seem to use when I'm making a card or maybe an embellishment like a pocket or tag... Buttons I don't mind, but always have a hard time finding one the colour/size/style I want for the project...

I agree with flowers. For me, they tend to be completely unrelated to my LO as I tend to scrap about my DS or my tomboy DD.

Gosh, I can't think of anything.
Maybe hay paper.
I just went through one if my old albums and found a really great layout coming apart because adhesive doesnt stick well to paper made from hay
So, I guess hay paper.
