    What was your first purchase here?

    I LOVE to Digital scrapbook shop and I was thinking about my first kits that I bought here about 2 1/2 years ago. What was your first purchase here?

    Here are a few of my very first purchases at Designer Digitals-

    Rag Doll kit by Katie Pertiet-

    Wirl Wind by MaryAnn Wise

  2. Fun question, Crissy!

    Here's my first kit from DD:

    Mac computer/Adobe Creative Cloud: CS and Lightroom; SonyA57

  4. This was mine . . . oh, how that "dates" file has grown in the past two years!

    I'm finding it pretty funny that I obviously had a thing for white back in the Spring of 2006

    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 (that I'd forgotten completely about) was Anna's

    I didn't know how to use a clipping mask and just nudged and resized everything to fit! LOL!

    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!)

  12. Fun question!

    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!

  16. 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!

  17. 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.

    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.
