I don't know the name of my first set either... it was in the 97/98 catalog and was some Ballerina Bears.

Ohhh... found it! It was Bear Hugs, with only one dancing bear and some other cute tumbling bears.

Bud Basics from last summer's mini for me. I liked (and still do) the simple flower designs. Enjoy your first set; Wild about you is on my list!

Wow! This takes me back! I got 2. Home Tweet Home which was one larger stamp of a row of assorted bird houses and
Marvelous Morning Glory, which was a 2-step set that I couldn't get layered right to save my life!! I sold them within a few months on ebay and I think one of the next ones I got from SU was Bear Necessities.

My first set was Penguin Pals. I made (what I thought) was the cutest holiday cards with it. I still love it even though I haven't used it in years.

such a fun question.

I don't remember the name of the set, it would have been over 5 years old, a baby set with handprints and footprints, a crayon, rubber duckie. It was a gift from my SIL after she found I was pregnant. Funny because that gift is what got me into stamping and scrapbooking and she never got into it.

My first was Holiday Wishes. My daughter, who had been stamping for several years, talked me into making Christmas cards several years ago, and my budget has been shot ever since......sigh.

My friend brought the SU catalog to a college class we shared and asked me if I wanted to join her club! One look at that catalog and I could tell that my DHs wallet was going to take a serious blow!! My first set was heartfelt thanks and I will NEVER part with it!

Mine were Bold butterfly (because I loved the picture of the decorated wall in the 2004-2005 catalogue) and Sincere Salutations because my DH insisted! It was really funny because I wasn't into cards at all but he thought it would be good for us to make our own cards. MWA HA HA. Little did he know he was leading me to the dark side.

I don't own any SU stamps. I prefer clear stamps. I am considering getting the crab one from the spring mini because he's so unique and adorable, especially if I can use EZ mount to use the images with my acrylic blocks.

Wow! My first purchase was 10 years ago. It was called Wildflowers. The stamps were HUGE back then! I only wanted the daisy stamp out of it for a project I was working on. Who woulda thunk it that years later I would own over 200 stamp sets???? (Not me, that's for sure!!)

Whoda thunk it? I also got Business Memos, because I was a Pampered Chef consultant at the time. Thought it would be "useful". It wasn't. Still using QGC though!

En Pointe. Both my daughters are in ballet and as I've often said, it's the only non-cutesy/little girl stamp for ballet I've ever seen.

I'm still using it to this day--used it in a triangle card with tiny polka dot paper in shades of pink and black.

It's great when "first love" lasts!

Nice and Easy Notes. Now a days, my 8 and 10 year old girls stamp with it so I guess it hasn't gone to waste.

Foam mounted "Plaid Maker." And after that, "Nellie the Nest Lady". Still have both. Bought too long ago to remember when.

My first sets were "little by little" (which I still have) and another floral one which I've sold. I bought it because it had the most pieces for the price - tons of little branches and things. But hardly ever used it because I dislike masking.
I remember telling dh, "look how many stamps this has... I'll never need another set again". of course, that wasn't the case. (as he reminds me every so often)
