****THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED****
We hope everyone enjoyed making their Blurb book!
I’ve been super excited about this giveaway for over a month, and I’m so excited to finally be able to post it! But before we get to the giveaway part, let me show off one of my new favorite things sitting on our coffee table…
I’m sure I’ve mentioned this a few times, but I love Instagram. If you haven’t joined in on the Instagram bandwagon yet, it’s kind of like Twitter, but with photos. If you’re already on Instagram, you can find us at 7thHouseBlog. Sometimes I find myself taking photos of the most random things just to post them on Instagram. Recently, Greg has taken to asking, “Instagram?” whenever I take out my phone. Now, pair this obsession with my love for pretty coffee table books, and bam! you have Blurb. One of Blurb’s latest and greatest features is the ability to design fully custom, beautifully printed books using your Instagram photos. Needless to say, I had to try it out.
Importing all of my Instagram photos only took a few minutes. It was a lot of fun to arrange all of them and choose which ones made the cut (I used the Bookify option). About a week later, I got my finished product in the mail. The anticipation was killing me, and I could hardly open the package fast enough. I chose the black hardback cover (which came with a spiffy dust jacket) but decided to personalize the cover in a different way…
I used one of my favorite stamps with some gold ink and stamped front cover. I love the metallic gold ink against the black cover and the design of the stamp gives the book a modern rustic look which will eventually tie in with our living room. My cup of tea.
I’m super impressed with the quality of the book – and I’m one of those super-picky paper people. It’s just like an expensive coffee table book you’d buy from a bookstore, but with my Instagram photos. Being 7×7, it’s the perfect size to sit out on the coffee table. It’s fun to show it off to our non-Istagramming friends and family.
Now that I’ve tasted a bit of the Blurb awesomeness, I’m thinking this would be a really cool way to preserve our photos every year. Or, how fun would it be to create a vacation book with just our Disney World photos?! Yep, that’s happening.
