Cartridge Showcase: Locker Talk



Today's Cartridge Showcase is featuring another oldie, but goodie -- Locker Talk!  Please give a warm Cooking With Cricut welcome to one of our new Design Team members, Debbie of Workin' Scrappin' Mom of 4 blog!

Our Design Team members will be featuring their favorite cartridges on Mondays and Thursdays each week.  It is our hope that you'll be inspired to drag out an old cartridge and find a new way to use it -- or be compelled to purchase a new cartridge 'cause you just gotta have it!  (Disclaimer:  Cooking With Cricut accepts no responsibility nor is liable for any "unauthorized" or "compulsive" purchases.  So don't sic your significant other on us when the bank statement or credit card bill comes in!!!!)


There are just so many versatile images on this cartridge!  Great school images, school sayings, you can make small books for a mini scrapbook or an autograph books for a teacher, and more.  I have used this cartridge for teachers’ gifts, cards, bookmarks and even to accent my crayon wreath!  Here are some of the projects I have created using Locker Talk.

Crayon Wreath:




I used Locker Talk to cut the apple, glue and the ruler.  I had a small chalkboard ornament that I wrote on with my white gelly roll pen for the chalkboard and since my children go to Catholic school I added small Bible that I had from some previous projects.


"Soda"lighted Teacher's Gift:



I found this SUPER cute idea on Pinterest and had to make it for my boy's teachers. I also made one for the Principal and one for the Administrative Assistant who does EVERYTHING at the school (they go to a small, 1 class per grade, Catholic school). They loved them and I enjoyed making them. I covered  an empty pop tart box to make the basket. I used paper and ribbon to cover and make the handle with brads to hold on the handle. I used Locker Talk for the pencil, ruler and scissors. I filled the box with red tissue paper before I put in the treats. I put a soda, a pack of light microwave popcorn and at my son's request a highlighter (since the card says "Soda" lighted (so delighted) to have you as...so he wanted a highlighter to go with the "lighted" portion of the card).

Third Grade Teacher Survival Kit:




I used Locker Talk for the pencil, scissors and the third grade sign for this Teacher's Survival Kit.


Birthday Card:






I used Locker Talk for this card, using the card feature, then I cut the layers, just hand cut some squares and added a stamp and some glossy accents.  I “topped” it off with a 5 guys gift card on the inside.
Reading Reminder Bookmarks:

These cute little apple bookmarks are also from Locker Talk.  A perfect reminder to read, read, read!
Super cute projects, Debbie!  Thanks so much for sharing them with us -- I bet you're the parent every teacher wants for "Room Mom!"

We hope you gathered some inspiration for your own school days projects.  Click over to Debbie's blog and show her some "love!"  Make sure you mark your calendar and join us this Saturday, October 22 beginning at 8:00 AM (Eastern Standard Time) for our "Adopt A Shelter Pet" Blog Hop.  Eighteen of our Design Team members are participating and there will be some amazing projects and blog candy up for grabs!
