What a great question, Crissy!
This was my first kit:
Hardware: Apple MacBook Pro, Nikon D80; 28-105mm, 50mm 1.8, Wacom Tablet
Software: PhotoShop CS5, Lightroom 3
And both were $0.25!!!
Cassie Jones AND Katrina Kennedy tutorial collector.
Nikon D90 * Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6 (VR) *
Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D * Tamaron 28-75 f/2.8 *
Sigma 30mm f/1.4 HSM (LOVE IT)
Adobe Photoshop Elements 5.0 & Lightroom 3.0 beta
I thought the Cabana White paper or the White Sticker alpha were my first purchases but I was wrong. According to my account history messy white stitching was my first purchase among other things:
I'm finding it pretty funny that I obviously had a thing for white back in the Spring of 2006
According to my order history, my first four purchases were:
12 X 12 Scratched Edge Overlays No. 01
Defining Friends Brushes-n-Stamps
Friends Word Art No. 02 Brushes-n-Stamps
Camera: Canon Power Shot S5 IS
Software: Photoshop Elements 11
These are so fun to see!! I think I also has some messy stitches that I bought on my first purchase here too, Paula!
My very first purchase, In April of 2005, was Katie's Caramel Floral paper. I too had to check out my account history and was surprised to see all of my orders back for over three years!
Lynn (also known as Lynnie!)
Mine was Botanist Notebook #4
Look at all the goodies: It has great background paper, staples, stitching, an aged alpha, stamps and a ledger grid. I STILL use pieces of this kit on a regular basis, especially the pair of staples. I swear every other one of my layouts has these staples!
Software: Photoshop Elements 6
Camera: Canon Rebel XT
Lenses: 50 mm 1.8, 18-55 mm, 75-300
Not sure I really liked seeing such a long list of orders! I even saw things I'd forgotten I have. But this was my first order:
Vintage Photo Frames Curled-n-Flat No. 08
Curled Journal Spots No. 03
Camera: Nikon D50 w/ Speedlight SB-600 flash, Canon PowerShot A470
Lenses: 18-35mm, 50mm 1:1.8D, 80-200mm
Computer: PC w/ Windows Vista 64, Epson Perfection V500 Scanner (for those old pics that I still have to get into digi format!), Epson Stylus Photo R1800 Printer, Wacom Bamboo Tablet
Software: PSE 6.0 with Noiseware Standard Plug-in, LightRoom 2, ACDSee Photo Manager 2009
wowzers, First time I traced my order history back to the very first one! August 6 2006! and I spent $61.00! I bought lots of kits and , wow, I can't believe how long that has been. Still using all DD products too!
My first total was $35.49, and included these great basics!
Deckled Edge Frames
Digital Date Stamps No. 01
Jefferson Paper Pack
My first order also included three other digital date stamps & three packs of Katie's Messy Stitches! Many of these products are such basics, and ones that I have in my desktop "go to" folder of most used items.
Great thread Chrissy!
Mine was back in Nov 2005 after lurking for awhile. It was the Jack and Me kit. I'm wondering if Katie retired it. I can't find it in the store. I remember thinking then how much better DD's designs were than everyone else's.
We Make Three
I am cracking up! I was in awe of all of you and your memories until "orders history" was mentioned!!! I thought you were all remembering this off the tops of your heads! What a relief!!
What a great thread, Crissy!
My first order was in August of 2005. Two of the products are retired. Here is the third:
Defining Friends Paper Single
Seaside Kit by Katie Pertiet
The Tiki Beach Boy Kit by Andrea Victoria
and Chrissy's Summer Kit which doesnt' seem to be available anymore. This is according to my order history...which is pretty long..ha!
