"Everything that's old is new again" -- PattyB
Originally designed for SU! demos to keep in contact and inspire each other, Splitcoast became the #1 site for stamping. As time went on and Splitcoast evolved, the papercrafting industry became more and more prominent. Splitcoast Stampers, the community that was built upon Stampin' Up!, spread its wings to include companies offering different papercrafting products.
Soon it began to seem like there was less and less SU! product visible within the community so the idea of developing challenges and "Wicked Wow" just for SU! demo's was born. Unfortunately, while this continued to populate the demo areas it was doing nothing to help the overall image of SU! throughout the entire Splitcoast community. SCS community members that were not SU! demo's continued to be tantalized by the smorgasbord of delights offered by other companies.
Thus the evolution of this revolution! There is a phrase "Everything that's old becomes new again" so this revolution went back to the beginning! A crew of SU demo's -- the Creative Crew! -- were picked to develop projects each month that are primarily Stampin' Up! Projects that we want to WOW people, to INSPIRE people, to show the whole SCS community that Stampin' Up! also has a smorgasbord of ideas and products available to them.
Every month, there will be four challenges that can be done either Stampin' Up! only (SUO) or with 95% SU! products (SUM) in four focus categories:
Scrapbook Inspiration Focus
All of the Crew design team members are Stampin' Up! demo's, but the creations inspired by the challenges each month are for the entire SCS community. We encourage demo's and non-demo's alike to play along, be inspired, and "TO SHARE WHAT YOU LOVE!"
