My project features a sneak peek at a new 2015 Holiday Release set, coming August 4th!  I did a shaker card for the hop, as I love shaker cards, and I especially adore the ones Laura has featured in her videos because they are delightfully easy and, well, I just can’t resist anything that includes fun, colorful Washi Tape!
