Blurb Book-GIVEAWAY!

The last few weeks I have had the opportunity to work with a number of great companies. Their products are perfect for gift giving. Over the next week or so, I want to introduce you to a few of these companies, in hopes that their products make your holidays easier. 

Continuing our ode to gift giving, today I want to share with you another great gift to give that special someone. You can find my first suggestion here. Be sure to enter the giveaway at the end of this post.



Have you heard of Blurb
Blurb is a creative publishing platform that allows anyone to create, share and sell a professional quality book. 
  • create a baby book of baby's first year
  • an archive of your blog 
  • a cook book of your favorite recipes 
  • a photo book of your family pictures 
  • a quick book of your instagram or facebook photos. 
The possibilities are limitless. It’s easy and quick to do. 

A few weeks ago our family took a trip to a family wedding. I put together my first Blurb book on my laptop in our hotel room. It was so fun and simple. 

In about an hour, I created a facebook album full of my hubby's favorite photos. I am going to give it to him for Christmas. 


I simply went to the Blurb website and clicked on "Make A Book." I then choose a template and that is when the fun began. 

With a very easy to use template, I was able to access all the facebook photos that I have posted, as well as any photos friends and family have posted that included me. With a simple click of the mouse I added all the photos I wanted included in the book. When you add the photos, you can also choose to add the captions that were on facebook, AND the comments if you want. You can leave the facebook captions off and add your own if you prefer. 

I was very impressed by how easy it was to organize and arrange the pictures. I finished things up by choosing and designing the cover. A few days later our Blurb book arrived in the mail. 










What a great gift a Blurb book would make. A book full of pictures of the grandkids for grandma and grandpa. A book full of favorite family recipes to share with siblings. Blurb books would also be the perfect way to "scrapbook" your families life. 

Once your book is completed, you can also share it with others on your facebook/twitter or website, blog- you can even sell it for profit.

Want to win a $50 dollar gift card to Blurb? Of course you do. You can use it for yourself, or for that special someone this holiday season.

  1. I love blurb books. I make one every year with the content from my personal blog. I've been doing this since 2008. These books are among my most prized possessions. I tell my husband if we ever have a fire,one of us gets the kids out, the other needs to grab the blog books.

  3. My brother and his wife welcomed their first baby this year. They live in Washington. The rest of the family live here in Utah. I would make a blurb book with photos of all of my baby nephew's family members so that he can look at our smiling faces everyday even though we are far apart. ♥

  32. 2011 Family photo book. I finished 2010 a while ago through blurb, but still need to make 2011. It would probably be nice to get that done before 2012 is over too.
