What is Splitcoast Stampers?
Splitcoast Stampers is the largest online paper craft community in the world! Started in 2002 by Daven and Tracy Nolta as a support forum for Tracy’s Stampin’ Up! downline, this now-public community has grown into a thriving international hive of paper craft activity. Although stamping and cardmaking is still a central focus at Splitcoast Stampers, all paper crafts are represented and supported.
At Splitcoast Stampers you’ll find:
- Member and company-specific project galleries
- Paper craft tutorials galore
- Daily paper craft challenges, even when Falliday Fest isn’t happening

Important Note About Photo Uploading at Splitcoast Stampers
One important thing to note about Splitcoast Stampers is that there are certain restrictions on photo uploading. Free members may only upload their project photos Monday thru Saturday, and all uploads must be approved by a moderator.
Normally this means that your projects won’t show up in their photo galleries until they have been looked at and approved. However, Splitcoast Stampers often turns off photo moderation requirements during special events like Falliday Fest. I can’t guarantee that’s the case this time around, so if your photos don’t show up right away after you upload them, please be patient. The moderators are all volunteers, and work as quickly as they can to get to each and every photo.
If you don’t want to have to hassle with the photo uploading restrictions during Falliday Fest or any other time, you can sign up for a paid Fan Club membership at Splitcoast Stampers. For just $24.95 per year or $14.95 for 6 months, paid members get:
- Access to a monthly members-only themed project galleries. Each monthly gallery includes over 100 projects samples made by the Splitcoast ‘Dirty Dozen’ design team.
- Additional members-only templates and tutorials
- Access to all Fan Club galleries dating back to 2004
- Sneak peeks at and a head start on upcoming special event challenges
- The ability to upload 7 days a week, with no moderator approval necessary
I’m a paid member at Splitcoast Stampers, and really feel it’s worth it. The monthly Fan Club galleries are so rich in inspiration, and I love being able to upload my photos whenever I want to.
