Fantabulous Friday -- Locker Talk

Hi everyone! Another Fantabulous Friday here again. Lots of Blogger problems today but finally working again :) It looks like Blogger erased yesterdays post. Hopefully they can recover them for us!

This week, I decided to talk a look at the Locker Talk cartridge. It fits so well will our Challenge Me Monday to make something for a teacher and use red on there. Plus, it's the end of the school year and there are memories to scrap as well. So let's take a look!

Locker Talk has 6 creative feature buttons: Layers, Phrase/Layers, Card, Book Cover, Shadow and Blackout.

Here's a quick, easy gift I put together last night using the apple from the 1st cut on the cartridge. It's one of those clear paint cans. I lined the inside with red cardstock, added the apple to the front with pop dots and put ribbon at the top and bottom on the outside and on the handle.
This was a super quick scrapbook page with the Phrase/Layers button for the word graduation. The cap also came from the same button as well.
The card feature makes simple cards. And the Book Cover Button I didn't get to explore too much. It looks like you can really cover a book! I think this would be great to make a cover for a personalized book and use a Your Story to bind it or some other binding system. Please share if you try this!
Look at this adorable card I found on Julie's of Julie's Crafty Spot Blog! That cute 'bug' car is from Locker Talk. This is to show you that you don't have to use it just for school related things :) Make sure to stop by and give her some love!

Thanks for stopping by Fantabulous Friday, and don't forget there's still time to participate in this week's Challenge Me Monday. Just make a teacher themed project and the color red!
