An admission and a share and a few Q&A’s…

I have something to admit.

I am a geek.

Yes.  A big geek.  I stood in line for 6 hours this morning to get the new iPhone.  And, yes, I already had the old one.  But it is my baby and gets A LOT of use, so I did it.  My brother and I actually had a good time waiting and waiting and waiting.  And when we left, the line was just as long as when we started.  So… there are a lot of geeks out there just like me! πŸ™‚  Hee.  Isn’t she a beauty?

On to scrapbooking…

This is just a page I did a long time ago as a sample for CHA.  And since CHA is around the corner, I thought I would share it.  It just uses LOTS of Autumn Leaves buttons and LOTS of patience. πŸ™‚  Their buttons rock since you get so many in so many great colors.  Those buttons fill my jars shown HERE.

Amazing Buttons

Autumn Leaves Rub-ons
And More Autumn Leaves Buttons

ETA: Funny thing – Robyn and I both posted AL button layouts today!  HERE is hers.  It is so fabulous… you mush see it!

A few Q&A’s…

Q: Is it necessary to use a fixative if I stamp my image with a glue pad, like Tsukineko’s? (with Perfect Pearls)

A: Well, you don’t have to.  But if you want to be sure that it stays nice and clear and doesn’t rub off, I recommend doing it.  It is inexpensive and easy to find.  I use THIS.

Q: Where did you get that wonderful fine string?

A: Ah… I love this stuff.  It is just the inexpensive stuff from Hobby Lobby in the knitting section.  $1.99 for a million yards or something. πŸ™‚  Lots of basic colors. Here is a photo of it (with a gem smiley face that Colin did a few months back).


That’s all for now.  Have to catch up on work after 6 wasted hours this morning!  Have a good Friday. πŸ™‚

  1. oooh! Jeniffer, may I scraplift this page? I have lots of buttons too and a picture of my son when he was a baby that screams “cute as a button”.

  2. i loved that layout when i first saw it! i love buttons and have more than i know what to do with. but i don’t think i’d have the patience to actually thread all of those … i can see myself glue-dotting them on though. lol!

    have fun with your new toy!

  3. Too funny – I posted an AL button layout today too! LOL! I just added a link to your’s as well – I’ve always loved that layout! Enjoy your new toy – what are you doing with your old one? πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  4. I’m too techno-illiterate to be a geek but appreciate those of you who are (have too, I’m married to one). πŸ˜‰
    LOVE that layout!! I know I don’t have the patience to do it myself but it’s just beautiful!!!

  5. congratulations on your new phone!!! πŸ™‚
    i am jealous… i need to wait until my verizon contract expires and then i’m headed straight for the apple store.

    love that button layout. you always amaze me, jennifer!

  6. I just love this layout…
    I walked up to the Apple store this morning at 11:00 am to get my first iphone….the line was estimated to be 4 hours long….I walked away very disappointed…I’ll pick one up in a few weeks when the madness subsides! Enjoy yours!

  7. Hi and thank you for replying my question! πŸ™‚ I don’t think I’ll find the same fixative here, but I’ll look! If I get the perfect pearls, but since I love everything you post in your blog, I will sooner or later (I just got some Colorbox cat’s eye inkpads today, fun!).

  8. Congrats on your gorgeous new baby! πŸ™‚ If you ever feel like doing a big ol’ enabling post on the iPhone I’m all ears. πŸ˜‰ Your button page is beyond amazing girl…oh my goodness!! I am inspired now to do something like this for my wall.

  9. an iphone is definately at the top of my WANT list! πŸ˜‰
    LOVE the layout…the buttons look amazing like this and I love that you sewed them all on (even if it was time consuming!)

  10. Very cute layout, but more importantly – YAY for the new iPhone! LOL! Hoenstly, though, I would love to hear your comparison of the new vs. the old. Dh has th old one and he is wanting to buy me the new one, but I am concerned that some quality corners were cut, so I’d love to hear the opinion of one who has both! We love his old one, and we are wicked Mac junkies, so I feel bad doubting the new one! LOL!

  11. Um, Jennifer, was my sister Jana in the ‘new phone’ line with you? She’s been talking about that phone for a month!

    Plus she said I can have her old one πŸ™‚
