Blurb $75 Gift Card Review & Giveaway!
I have an exciting giveaway for you today. A few weeks ago, I was contacted by Blurb and asked to try out their photobook software and host a giveaway for one lucky reader!
I chose to create an 80-page 8x10 photobook of The Bambina's first six months of life. I hadn't ever gotten around to starting her scrapbook, so this gave me the push I needed to jump in there and get it done. (And it feels so good to be on my way!)
Blurb has two methods of creating a photobook for basic users. One is a software that you download onto your computer, called Blurb BookSmart, and the other is an online tool called Bookify Online. While the BookSmart software is fully customizable, I chose to use the online tool in order to streamline the process.
I was able to create an 80-page scrapbook for The Bambina is about 4 days, working only during her naptimes. I was amazed! If I had tried to actually scrapbook her pictures in a binder, it would have taken me months to complete. (Hence, why I hadn't started yet...)
I chose a hardcover imagewrap cover, which turned out beautiful and very professional looking. I loved all of the font choices for the text.
The online tool has a wide variety of styles and layouts to choose from, and it's very simple and user friendly. There were one or two times when I wished I had a layout that wasn't available, but I was able to make everything work and ended up very happy with the result.
If you haven't tried Blurb yet - I highly recommend giving it a go! I think you'll love it as much as I did.
One lucky winner will win a $75 gift card to make a Blurb photobook of their very own!
