{Review} Blurb’s new Designer Collection photo books (+ 20% off promo code)

by Melody on March 25, 2013


Today through March 31st, Blurb is offering 20% off all of their new Designer Collection photo books with promo code DESIGNMYBOOK.

The Designer Collection consists of six pre-made templates that you can choose from to create a 7″x7″ custom photo book.  The pre-designed templates make it super easy to create a quick (but amazing) photo book.  You don’t have quite as many editing features, but the interface is extremely user-friendly and the books are really quick to make.

I was recently given the chance to try out Blurb’s new Designer Collection and was really impressed with the ease of the interface.  I LOVE the finished product when I make a photo book, but struggle with the amount of time they can take.  I have also been lamenting the fact that, while I have approximately one gazillion pictures saved on my computer, I barely have any printed and I sure as heck don’t have any kind of scrapbook.  These books are the perfect solution.


Since I tend to share my favorite pictures of the boys on Facebook with family and friends, I used Blurb’s Facebook tool to upload pictures.  Once you connect with Facebook or Instagram through Blurb, it automatically pulls up all of your photo albums and all I had to do was select the pictures I wanted to include.  While there was no rhyme or reason to what I chose, I just picked those that had always resonated with me.  Once my pictures were chosen, I had them automatically uploaded into my book and sorted by date.  I swear the whole process took me less than half an hour.

With Blurb, you can make not only photo books, but custom cookbooks, planners and so much more.  Their products are amazing!  These books are a great way to make thoughtful gifts for friends and family while letting you unleash your creativity.

*While I was given the opportunity to try out these photo books for free, the opinions are all my own.  I have had this site recommended to me by several friends and have passed it on to you, but wanted to personally give it a try so I knew exactly what I was recommending.  Enjoy!
