Fish Extenders Gifts

Previous - 100 Days
Next - Coming Soon


Yikes! It’s been a while since my last update. Rest assured that I haven’t fallen off the Disney wagon and given up my Disboard-loving ways. With the server change, I managed to get myself locked out of the system. I forgot my password and the “send me my password” link wasn’t working. Good news, I’m back (and have my password conveniently stored).

Back to the countdown. The past few weeks I’ve been spending my free time working on my FE gifts. If you are in my exchange, I highly recommend that you stop reading now so that you don’t spoil the surprise.












I mean it…
















Stop reading…














Okay, I warned you…












A while back I said that I was considering making some kind of mini scrapbook. Since then, I have been checking Google and youtube for ideas. After narrowing it down to a few different styles, I decided to try my hand at a paper bag scrapbook. They seemed to be the most versatile scrapbooks and leave plenty of room for personalization. I also liked the idea of being able to create pockets to hold little odds and ends that are collected over the course of the trip.

Satisfied with my research, I took a trip to the store and picked up a couple packs of paper bags and dug out my scrapbook supplies.



Progress on these books has been coming along nicely. Once I figure out how I want to layout the pages, it only takes about 10 minutes to assemble the rest of the pages for the other books.



Those are the spreads that I've created for my books! I'm super excited with the way that they are coming out. So far there have only been a few people who signed up to be part of the FE exchange, so I'm done with the major parts of my books. I'm now adding the little touches that will make the books extra fun, such as the Polaroid page. This spread has a "Polaroid" flap that doubles as a "Key to the World" holder. There is also a set of "Polaroids" that pulls out of one of the side pockets.



I also created some Dreams for the cover of the books.


Let me know if you want tutorial for how I made these books and I'll throw something together.

Thank you! I'll probably post a video or something along those lines that flips through all the pages.

Thanks Clint says he'll never really understand it, but he gets a kick out of how excited these things make me.

What a wonderful gift and Happy Anniversary in advance. You will love the Dream!

I am not a craft person at all yet I might be able to do that scrapbook idea for our FE next year! Can't wait to see a how-to video.
