Giveaway – £30 Voucher with Blurb Books

| September 18, 2012 | 115 Comments

Well, I don’t know about you, but I love Blurb and the concept behind them – create your own books or photo books easily and quickly. Recently, I contributed to a charity bedtime story book and this was created and printed through Blurb, and the result was wonderful. The children were SO impressed to see a story “about them” in a BOOK.

Similarly they have a great range of Photo Books to choose from now too – which also fits into my annual plans – I create a photo book for each of the kids every year, which we love to browse through regularly. Love it. They make great gifts to grandparents too.

And those are just two ideas – Blurb have even more Book Ideas for you to browse (love the recipe book one)…

They are giving away a £30 voucher to one lucky reader of Red Ted Art.

If you would like to win it, all you have to do, is visit the Book Ideas have a look around and then let us know below which book you would make and who you would like to give it to! If you win, you could make it in time for Christmas!


  1. Open to the UK only
  2. One entry per person
  3. Winner will be selected at random
  4. Competition closes on 1st October 2012 at 11pm
  5. Delivery of the prize is sole responsibility of Blurb and not Red Ted Art

    Thanks for the great giveaway, I have heard good things about Blurb, but not yet got round to trying them out. I like the look of the Lush Lights photo book, I’d use that format to make a really cool photo album of the year for my little boys for Christmas.

  5. Emma in Bromley says:

    What a fab idea!
    I’d make the notebook version for my hubby – he uses lots of notebooks at work and I know how much he misses the kids – I would fill it full of funny photos to break a smile in all those meetings!

  13. Michelle Best says:

    Love to make the photobook – its my In-Laws golden wedding in a couple of months and I am collecting pictures/photos of them through the years – to display it like this, with captions/writing etc would make a great present for them.

  22. Oh it has to be the photo book for me
    Tis you see, for my poetry
    Words of wit, whimsy and woe
    Complemented with a glossy photo

    Yes indeed it’s the photo book I need
    With crisp white pages that do not bleed
    Fonts gallantly galloping across the pages
    A treasure to share and keep for ages

    Radiant, rapturous colours abound
    And my words will heopfully keep you spellbound
    Oh book of the strong and noble spine
    Please please say the voucher & book is mine?

  24. LInda Hobbis says:

    I’d make a book for my parents featuring their very naughty (but loveable) grandchildren so the family highlights book would be fab.

  25. Joanne Baldwin says:

    The Oliver 365 book is such a lovely idea and would be a fantastic end-of-year present for our family. It’s great having all our photos on the computer, but our 4 year old just LOVES flicking through photo albums and photobooks.

    I would create a photo book for my mum of my son Sebastian, whom she has not met yet. He will be one in December and I would love to create a book of his first year for his Gran, who lives in Australia. I am sad that the two of them have not yet had the chance to meet but hopefully a photo book would help make my mum feel closer to her grandson.

  52. Vanessa says:

    I’d love to do the 365 book for my little lady. Have heard great things about blurb but never actually made a book.

  53. Instagram book: for all those4 ‘spur of the moment’ pictures I take of the girls!

  54. I love the Exif Et Cetera book, though I’m not sure my photography is up to that standard! I’d give it to my hubby for Christmas with memories of the places we’ve been. I made a book for my gran a few years ago through another company, and it was such fun.

  55. Mark Palmer says:

    A photobook of how our house has been renovated.

    I’ll be honest, I’ve never heard of Blurb, came across it by accident, but I’m very glad I have :)
    Thanks x

  57. Alison says:

    I went on a round the world trip last year and I have been thinking about doing a book with all my photos and some little stories on the left hand side, kind of like a coffee table book so my friends can look at it when visiting me!

    It’s a bit cheeky but I would ask my dad to help me make a ‘memories from the kitchen’ book for our family. He is a fantastic chef and the kids love going to grandads house for dinner or to do some cooking or baking. I have some lovely pics of the kids cooking with him and it would be great to put our favourite recipes in a book (instead of the drawerful of scribbled notes I have just now!).

    Next year will be our 5th wedding anniversary and I would love to finally put together a photobook of all the photos that we took on our honeymoon round the world trip.

  95. I’d choose the Oliver 365 and give it to my father. He is partially blind, has recently lost most of his mobility and sees no point to the future. A book of family memories might help him realise how indispensible he’s always been and always will be.

  101. Mark Palmer says:

    The photobook.

  102. DawnLouise says:

    Oh what a difficult choice – it would be nice to make one with my favourite recipes, however I think I would have to go with Olivers 365 for when bump arrives as everyone keeps telling me how time will fly once they are here and how we should treasure every minute together so this seems like a good way to capture some of that!

  103. Gary says:

    I like the facebook photo book.Great idea.Id do it for my family
