Each month we create a mega kit based on a common color palette and theme. We have a focus element each month, and often there is a tutorial on how to create it. Digital Scrapbook Place has generously given us a forum to ask questions and share information, and a gallery to post previews of our kits and layouts made with them. We also have a chat there every Saturday night at 10pm EST where we discuss the upcoming month, and answer any questions that participants may have.
SNL Chats are every Saturday Night from 10-11 PM EST. Theme and color palettes are often decided at the second or third chat of the month. The 3rd Saturday of the month there will be a tutorial when available (volunteers always appreciated!). Attendance is not required but it's fun and informative so come if you can!
Choosing color schemes: Each month there will be a poll and we vote on a new color scheme for the following month. Everyone is welcome to send a color swatch for the poll which will be used as required.
Please send your color swatches to Kathy Ricker. She posts the color poll.

SNL and DSP:
At the SNL Scrappers blog and 4shared account, please use the same respect for DSP. It is important not to use SNL as an advertising venue. Do not post images on the SNL blog, on our 4shared account or in your kit, that use a professional designer's name. Do not add links to a commercial site in your SNL kit or TOU (or to your blog, facebook or twitter, if you are advertising or promoting sales at a commercial site).
Feel free to ask how to do ANYTHING! We are happy to share our knowledge with you and if you learn something interesting, you can reciprocate and share it with us.
