I use Photoshop Elements 9 and a really old version of Ulead. I had someone on the Creative DISign Forum make me the magnets with the ship and the sail date. Some of the other graphics I found on there as well and then personalized them. The bookmarks and the calendars I made using Ulead with some of their preset guides and images.

The Creative DISign Forum is awesome and the DISigners will personal graphics for you and then you can print them in whatever program you have.

Using a rotary blade, I cut the length to 11" and stitched the two sides together 1/4" from the ends. The key fob hardware then clamps to the stitched end covering that stitching. For ease of handling, I worked on sections of 44" at a time.
I love the key fobs.

I also found a bunch of High School Musical things for one young man who I'd heard loved it. We had so much fun participating in this!
Those Minnie and Mickey ears are great.

Highlighters for the navigator are nice. And you can get some at the dollar store. We did the same thing and my husband had me put two bottles of rum in each one but I know some people frown on that. He did have a good time with the extras.

Here are some pictures of the things we got from our Alaskan cruise on the Wonder this August 2011:





What we had made for our FE gifts in Alaska:


Pages from the Journal book we made for everyone: included tips for your cruise, an "Alaska Cruise Alphabet" of things to find and take pictures of from A to Z, and Disney themed cartoons from the newspaper.







Already started on some items for our NYC Magical Cruise
