My Digital Studio Design Team—Part 5

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

Name: Cori Kozak

Location: Acworth, Georgia (United States)


About me:  I’m a nutritionist by degree, a stay-at-home mom by day, and an avid crafter and digi-designer anytime in between. I have been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator since October 2010 and have loved every minute of it! I have an extremely supportive husband and two boys that are the main subjects of my scrapbook pages. 


How I got started with My Digital Studio: My upline (hi, Mandy!) was always creating in MDS and it rubbed off on me!  I wanted a way to get all of the photos off of my computer and into my scrapbooks—quickly. I made my first page in MDS years ago, uploaded it to, and haven’t stopped since!


Five fun facts about me:

  1. I was anti-digital scrapbooking for many, many years.
  2. I was voted "Most Likely to Succeed" in high school.
  3. I attended the University of Georgia. (Go DAWGS!)
  4. I surround myself with people that make me laugh.
  5. I’m a dog lover. Love my two 85 pound labs.

Five of my favorite My Digital Studio downloads:

Bach to School Ensemble

Natural Composition Overlays

The Best Year Photobook Template

Here's a sample that most conveys my personality:

And our next and final design team member…


Name: Teneale Williams

Location: Sydney, Austrailia



About me:  I’m a passionate, creative, always stamping, paper-hoarding, ribbon-collecting, button fanatic, stationery geek. Sometimes funny, sometimes just boring!


How I got started with My Digital Studio: I come from a professional background of product and graphic design, so I was naturally interested when it was released in the North America market, I was not completely sure if I would love My Digital Studio because when I craft I like layers with pretty ribbons and bows, also I was more of a card maker then a scrapbooker and I largely saw My Digital Studio used for scrapbooking, and not so much for cards or other projects.


I met Heather Summer in 2011 at convention in Salt Lake City and her excitement for MDS was infectious and this laid the fountain for my love of MDS, I was overjoyed when it was released in Australia earlier this year. I started playing with it straight away and people were shocked when commented that no longer need stamps anymore, I would use only MDS, well I have at least found a middle ground and I use them together. I love that My Digital Studio coordinates with the rest of the Stampin’ Up! Range to create hybrid projects and cards.


Five fun facts about me:

  1. I was child roller skating champion—well, at least in my memories I was a champion as the reality is I only won 2 trophies.
  2. My worst habit is my finger tapping on a table with I am thinking or creatively blocked. However, people around me find it distracting or sometimes rude.
  3. When I am crafting I am often found with my iTunes flowing and me singing along but sadly off key.
  4. I could carry the nickname big foot as I take a ladies 14 shoe.
  5. I love stationery and in particular, sticky notes. I put them on everything and anything.

Five of my favorite My Digital Studio downloads:

Bunch of Backgrounds
(NA, EU, SP)

Back to School Ensemble
(NA, EU, SP)

First Edition Designer Series Paper
(NA, EU, SP)

Decorative Overlays
(NA, EU, SP)

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

Here's a sample that most conveys my personality:

I love the first edition ds paper that Teneale choose as one of her favorites.

Comment by Susan Mac Donald on November 10, 2013 at 9:45am

this is beautiful, as it doesn't look like an mds card, but looks stamped & layered; glad you're on board w/the mds crew; I had the pleasure of meeting you in 2011 at the SU convention

Woo Hoo Cori!  Congrats!  She is one of the first people I met on MDS and so helpful and friendly and talented!  Woo Hoo!  I love the Bunch of Backgrounds...I've never heard of it before!

What a hard decision to just select one - Cori's downloads are a little easier, i love the Natural Composition Overlays. Teneale and I obviously have similar taste - I have always loved the First Edition DSP, but I am really forming a string bond with the digital overlay's - love the Decorative Overlays. PS The Bunch of Backgrounds a pretty addictive too cheers Linda

Great samples - it's amazing what you can make with Mds. The one I love the most would be "game day " as I have two boys that love sports so it would be a fantastic way to get those photos scrapbooked

Teneale fellow Aussie congrats! My fav first edition Dsp
Comment by Marlo DeVouge on October 31, 2013 at 3:32pm

Great samples - especially the cards!  from Cori's picks I like the Best Year Photobook, and from Teneale's, the Back to School Ensemble
