In July of 2011, we did a week of layouts, sketches and prizes here on my blog and on YouTube. It was A TON of fun, so I decided we should do it again!
Starting on Monday, June 17th, I'll be kicking off Layout Week 2013 here on my blog with a sponsored giveaway from Hip 2b Square's Hip Kit Club!
They have sent me one of their June Main Kits to give away. Here's a picture of what's on the way:

Look at all those pretty papers! Yum!
In addition to sending one kit for me to give away, I'll be creating the first layout of Layout Week 2013 with their kits, so there will be plenty of inspiration for using yours once you get it.
But that's just what happens on Monday! I have FIVE step-by-step YouTube tutorials coming, with a new one posted each day of the week. That's five new layout process videos! The first one - featuring the June Hip Kit - will go up on Monday, June 17th at 5:00 a.m. Eastern USA time.

Here are some sneak peeks of the finished layout:
 Not only do I have five new layouts AND five new videos coming, but I have also created a sketch for each layout that will be available for you on my blog as part of each day's post - how fun is that!? I drew all my own sketches for this week's video series. Not only was it a lot of fun, but it made the creative process go so quickly!
Here's another taste of what's coming: Layout Week 2013!

So mark your calendars, because next week is going to be A BLAST!
