We’re excited to two more amazing designers that will be joining the My Digital Studio Design Team.

Name: Sarah Klass
Location: Perth, Western Australia


About me: I'm married to my handsome man, Tim, with two sweet daughters, Hannah (10) and Sophie (7).  I've been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator since May 2006, a month after they opened for business in Australia.


How I got started with My Digital Studio: I had enjoyed digital design for quite a number of years prior to My Digital Studio becoming available in the South Pacific Market, and would often use Photoshop to create artwork, invitations, party décor, and graphics for my blog. The arrival of MDS to Australia was the icing on the cake of my demonstrator experience!


Five fun facts about me:

  1. I studied Indonesian and Japanese at University, have spent time living in both countries and climbed a mountain in each.
  2. I met my husband in an indoor climbing gym.
  3. If I ate nothing other than roast pumpkin for the rest of my life, I'd be quite content.
  4. The nearest experience I've had of a Salt Lake of any variety was camping on a dried up one during a road trip through Western Australia and the Northern Territory
  5. I can do a mean cartwheel


Five of my favorite My Digital Studio downloads:

This & That Epic Day Kit
(NA, EU, SP)

Hip and Handsome Overlays
(NA, EU, SP)

Family Fun Photobook
(NA, EU, SP)

Be Awesome Today Calendar Template
(NA, EU, SP)

Hooray for Today Stamp Brush Set

Here's a sample that most conveys my personality:


And our next designer. . .


Name: Mandy Grant
Location: Atlanta, Georgia (United States)

About me: I’m thrilled to be on the design team for one of my favorite product lines. I’ve been a demonstrator since 2002, well before “CASE,” “Designer Series Paper,” and “MDS” were common Stampin’ Up! terms. I have been married to the love of my life for the past 19 years. Together we have raised 3 teenagers that make me so proud.


How I got started with My Digital Studio: I started digital designing in 2006, I loved that clean up was as easy as shutting my computer and I was able to be creative even at the football field 3 nights a week. I know my family heard me scream, clear back in GA, when My Digital Studio was unveiled in Utah at Convention 2009! I placed my preorder September 1 and have been addicted ever since. The Tuesday downloads have become one of my “can’t wait for” moments each week.


Five fun facts about me:

  1. I signed up to be a demo the day after I held my first rubber stamp because I just had to have everything in the catalog!
  2. My hubby and I have walked on a glacier in Alaska, with my wonderful Stampin’ Up! friends.
  3. I love texture and sponging on EVERY project, I even found a way to sponge in MDS!
  4. I met one of my dearest friends, who lives across the country, at a Stampin' Up! event.
  5. I am a DIY girl at heart, from home projects to handmade items. I believe the more one creates the more one becomes!


Five of my favorite My Digital Studio downloads:

Downtown Grunge Photobook
(NA, EU, SP)

Fan Fair Photobook
(NA, EU, SP)

Be Awesome Today Easel Calendar
(NA, EU, SP)

Chevron Punch Kit
(NA, EU, SP)

Burlap Ribbon
(NA, EU, SP)

Here's a sample that most conveys my personality: I’m a vintage, grunge, DIY kind of girl!

Ladies, thanks for all your encouragement! Cindy Beach asked me about sponging in MDS, which I mentioned in my post. I shared a video of it (on this site) in Feb of 2011. Here's the link- http://www.mydigitalstudio.net/video/sponging-a-punch-in-mds
