New Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker collection - It's Raining

I LOVE CHA time. I love the excitement of new collections and supplies. I love working with a manufacturer and getting to work with some of those new supplies.  In this post, I want to share a few goodies.  Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker introduced a few new collections at this winter CHA and one of my favorite is the It's Raining collection. 

Some of the patterns in this collection are directly related to a "raining" theme and then there are a few prints that will go with any theme. If this little turtle just the cutest accent?

I did little accents to the dots on the umbrella with Aleene's Paper Glaze.  The prints on this card are from the sheets of the mini patterns. Instead of little pads of papers for this release, she created pages that are a mixture of the prints, just smaller. I love the smaller prints for cards. 
This is a 12" x 12" layout using this same collection.

The little turtle is part of the scallop paper piece so it was easy to make him part of my layout.

I used Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker self adhesive buttons to accent the little flowers that are in each corner of this piece of patterned paper.  The buttons look like they have thread already in them and the adhesive back makes them a breeze to use. 

I'll be sharing more of her new releases in another post.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
