My first setS (definitely plural!) I got for free by hosting a party.

Sketch an Event was my fave of my firsts, but I also luved the Hostess set I got with it--can't remember the name of it now, but it was a 2 step stampin' b-day set. My demo (who became my upline a few months later!) suggested I get Fresh Flowers as a great all-purpose floral set. I got it, but regretted that decision cuz it just wasn't my style. Sold it a few years later.

I'm just NOW getting to where I can sell/trade some of my sets that have never touched ink or even been mounted! (The hoarder in me just wouldn't let go....)

I have that set. It has purple rubber because it was a SAB set in 2000.

I would say that my first set was Scenery Set, which I purchased in 1998. The first time I saw a SU catalog, I was happy, because it wasn't ALL country, like DOTS. I had been to a couple of DOTS (Now known as Close To My Heart) parties before a friend joined up with SU and got me really hooked on collecting, er, stamping. My first rubber stamps were purchased in 1988, and they were from Inkadinkado.

Little Somethings and the matching wheel. I struggled to keep it close to $35 with everything I needed because I was just ordering to be polite. Let's see that was 9 years and oh-my-i-don't-want-to-add-the-figure-up so many dollars ago. What a fun ride!

I bought several sets my first time...offhand I think two of them were Candy Cane Christmas and Nature's Christmas, and most of the Halloween ones in the 1996-7 catalogue, (which I don't have - but that is the first catalogue I bought from).

I believe it was the first and still my very favorite is Say It With Scripture. I continue to use it today--5-6 years later. I think I bought Bitty Bolds? around the same time--it's the one with lots of little images--duck, star, swirly thing, etc. like 12 images in the set. The Bitty Bolds set (if that's the name) was/is still quite versatile.

SAB 2003 Painted Garden was my first stamp set ever. I had purchased the $50 of product (I remember getting the chalks for sure and not what else) and got my first stamp set.

Did nothing for a year. Then SAB 2004 rolled around and I had my first party. OMG --- did awesome! Over $750 and got all the SAB's that year and inks to 2 families.

Then did nothing for a year and finally got involved with a friend who did monthly clubs of $30. Started my massive collection with SAB 2005..... and some help from ebay. That continued up until SAB 2007......

Finally in SAB 2007 I joined as a demo.... the rest is history, an empty wallet and a friend/demo who is now my upline.

The first SU! sets that I purchased were: Stipple Hydrangea and French Text. I still use them today as they are, IMHO, "classic" sets.

My first set was "Nice Mice" back in 1997 or 1998. I remember going to that first demo thinking, "Who in their right mind would make a card when you can buy a card at Hallmark?" I guess you could call those famous last words! My bedroom is my stamping room and it is totally packed out now.
