I'm techno challenged:

Here is the list of what I included in our FE bag:

2 clothes pins (for keeping the divider closed)
3 different colored mini highliters
3 freezer qt zip lock bags
3 freezer gallon zip lock bags
1 regular size post it pad
2 safety pins
2 paper clips
3 band aids
2 carabiners (for holding a H20 bottle or pal mickey in the parks)
1 zip tie to keep your Fish Extender from swimming away
1 finger nail file

Maybe someone on the EDC 1 Nov Magic cruise has a pix to share of all the FE gifts that were given out.

The waterbottles were great BruceChase and I loved the post it holder too Smiley22.

For our FE gift I had candy wrappers made with the date of our cruise on them,and then we could just glue them on. It was a pain to keep the chocolate bars from melting though. I wish we would have made more of them too. We put bags together, but I think the candy wrappers were the only personalized part of our gifts.

I wish we would have gotten the CD someone made. But our cabin must have been missed or the person giving them out ran out. But someone mentioned they got a CD in their FE.

You really outdid yourself, and I'm glad I didn't have to fall over or even kill to get one!



This is what Jen gave us 2 weeks ago, and indeed it is amazing! It may or may not be similar to what you saw before, but it serves the same function!

There are inserts that are pulled out by the ribbon that slide down the inside of the scrapbook. So you can put pics on the main accordian piece and journal or add more photos to the inserts! I have seen something similiar to this done at a Stampin' Up! party, but this goes above what I've seen! A LOT of labor of love went into these!





I recognize that CTMH paper! Love it! Jen, are you a consultant? I've been one for 8 years now. It's always fun to see what other people do with our Disney stuff!

These FE gifts are awesome- I hope to do this on our upcoming cruise. I love the paperbag album or frame ideas. I scrapbook- so it's not like I don't have the supplies!!

I was thinking the same thing last night when I was on the boards...I'm anxious to hear how everyone did...I think I have narrowed done what I am doing, for the adults and teens at least! Now the kids...that's a different story all together!

Wow, the talent here is amazing! I was snooping for inspiration and am so impressed. I figure I have 10 months but better get started soon if I want to produce anything nearly as crafty as you guys put out! Question, where do you get the Disney Font from? I made door magnets for my folks when they sailed last January and searched high and low for the font with no luck. Thanks, Jen

Ellen, cute idea! Do you mind sharing who your supplier was for the customized ribbon? I can think of a few applications for that!

Just Wondering...

Do most people put in some kind of note or something with their GE gifts? So that you know who it's from? Or do you just put it in the FE's and go on your merry way? I am making a luggage tag for each cabin, but do not want to put my DIS name or anything on it, because, why would someone want that?

I will probably end up getting something else, small, as well, as now that I see the posts here my giftie seems kind of small. Wow what NICE gifts you guys came up with! Since I cruise in a month I am NOT going to drive myself insane trying the more advanced projects.

If you put your (the giver's) name on it, how exactly did you do it??? Sorry...detail person here.
