My Digital Studio Design Team—Part 1

We are excited to announce that over the next two weeks we will be revealing our brand new My Digital Studio Design Team. The team is made up of some extraordinary demonstrators and we cannot wait for you to get to know them even better and to share their amazing work.

Name: Amber Meadows

Location: Lorton, Virginia (United States)



About me: My husband and I just celebrated our 10 year anniversary. Our first date was to go see Lord of the Rings—we’re both sci-fi nerds! I’m a stay-at-home mom to three adorable (and hilarious) boys, ages 8, 6, and 5 weeks. Snuggling on the couch and reading books is my favorite way to spend time with them. I’ve been a demonstrator for 8 years and my sweet husband has been my biggest supporter from day one.


How I got started with My Digital Studio: I became interested in digital scrapbooking about a year before My Digital Studio was released, so when it was announced at convention in 2009 I was beyond excited. I struggled at first to create layouts that I was really happy with and I was ready to throw in the towel when Stampin’ Up! announced their first digital contest. Even though I hadn’t actually finished any of the projects I’d started, I decided to enter the contest—mostly because I really needed some motivation to complete something! Amazingly, I was one of the 10 winners and that was such a huge boost to my confidence that I spent every spare minute working in MDS and learning new techniques. Now I use it for everything—scrapbooking, cards, posters, tags, home decor, etc. I’ve definitely caught the My Digital Studio fever!

Five fun facts about me:

  1. Last year I went to Sea World (for the first time) and was able to pet, feed, and do a few tricks with a dolphin!
  2. Music fuels my creativity, so if I’m working in MDS my favorite tunes will usually be playing in the background.
  3. I love to laugh. Laughing is my favorite.
  4. When I go to the library I’m like a kid in a candy store—free books as far as the eye can see!
  5. I like to look at house plans just for fun. Weird, but true.


Five of my favorite My Digital Studio downloads:

Up next. . .


Name: Holly VanDyne

Location: Mansfield, Ohio (United States)

About me: I have a computer science degree and owned my own web design and marketing company for five years before joining Stampin’ Up! and becoming an art and computer teacher, as well as a librarian at a small private school. I’ve been a demonstrator for five years. I have a wonderful husband and we have two sweet daughters.

How I got started with My Digital Studio: I’ve been scrapbooking digitally for years and when My Digital Studio came out I’m sure I was one of the first people to get a copy.

Five fun facts about me:

  1. My daughters and I are Lego addicts.
  2. I write middle grade books and hope to have one published and on bookstore shelves soon.
  3. I used to collect souvenir snow domes and have 3,000 of them in my basement. My husband cut me off from buying any more but now I don’t know what to do with them all.
  4. I have a fear of odd numbers.

I LOVE office and school supplies! I feel like I’ve entered the mother ship when I walk into Office Max. For that reason I try not to go there often.

I have a lot of these already, so they are obviously my faves, too :-D  From Amber's list, I think a new favorite of mine could be the Nobody's Business Photobook Template.  From Holly's list, I have to say that I have been eyeballing the Hello There Kit for a that would be my pick there.
