Im getting married in April 09 and would love to win the minicards! I think they would make the cutest key chains. I would add an eyelet to them and then a keychain loop. Im doing a DIY photo booth- key chains and crazy pics go perfect together!

I love the notecards! I’ve been looking for a card that would stand up. We want to use them as thank you’s for the valets to place in everyone’s car so people can see a thank you from us as soon as they leave the party. I love how they stand up, so they can be placed on the dashboard! Fantastic.

would love to use these as LOVE NOTES for my honey…to tuck into his lunch, leave notes around the house.

Ok, first time I’ve entered a contest such as this (I’m a perpetual loser even in raffles – no dice my whole life!). Alas, who would be a better recipient than an anal person with creativity … that’s me! Check it: my wedding invites are 100% designed from scratch, and since the wedding’s in Madrid, and everything has to be bilingual (and printed twice or double sided – including maps, RSVP cards, cards with a web address, etc etc.), well, my poor government salary is stretched so thin … enter the MOO card: Cool, versatile, affordable, and PERSONALIZABLE. It’s the card of choice for displaying all the info we need to get to the guests.
If I win, I shall be a walking advertisement for MOO. Oh, and did I mention my future husband owns a dairy farm? How fitting!
PS – he will gladly name a cow after you, Brooklyn Bride!

My sister just bought a house last week so she is neck deep in paper work, inspections, etc. and has no time at all to think about planning her wedding. I wanted to do as much research/planning as possible to make things less stressful for her. I showed the Minicards to her and she fell in love with them! She would love to use them as either Save the Dates or the final touch to her wedding favours.

Moo contest!




All of you know I’m a big fan of the Moo cards, especially their little mini ones…I use them as my business cards and even used them in my wedding with my favors. They’re printed on really good stock paper, and you can use a different photo for every card!! Well, this London based company is so nice that they’re letting me give away sets of either Minicards or Notecards to 5 lucky winners with free shipping! Leave a comment below with what you’d like to win and how you’d use them, and I’ll announce the winners on Tuesday after Labor Day!

I’m taking this week off as my last little vacation for the summer, so I will see you back here after Labor Day. Have a great week and holiday weekend!

Blurb winners

I’ve been so amazed at what cool images you guys have sent me for the Blurb contest! I feel like I’ve gotten a sneak peak into your lives! Here are the winners, in no particular order. I’ll be emailing your discount codes this evening so you can start working on your books [i hope you'll send me pics of the final result]….congrats!

Vane,
I was so excited when I read your post this morning about this contest. I plan to use Blurb to do a couple of books for my wedding as gifts to various people.
The main book I am trying to create is one for my mother and uncle (who is walking me down the aisle). I am the family genealogist and I have spent the past two years (on and off again) researching my family history. I have traveled across the country to various relatives collecting family photos and stories. And my gift to my mother and uncle would be a book highlighting all of the research, photos, and stories I have collected. The cover I would choose is a montage of photos of various relatives. This is so important to all of our family especially since my grandparents, the two most special people to all of us, will not be able to attend. My grandfather passed from cancer 17 years ago and my grandmother though still alive will not be able to attend my wedding since she is in a nursing home and is not able to walk or sit up in a wheelchair. They were our main link to the past and I want to make sure our story is captured and documented.
By doing this I feel like it ties us together and is a great way for us to have a memorial to all of our ancestors .

Hi BB
I wish i could enter in 2 pictures, but i think i narrowed it down
to one! We had a “photo booth” at our wedding, which wasn’t the typical kind. We had some awesome photographers set up an area at our reception with a backdrop and props and * poof * instant fun!
I def. want to make a Blurb book of just our photo booth pictures. :) they captured sooo much fun on our day!
This one attached would be our cover.  Photo by Gabriel Ryan Photographers

Hi Vane,
We recently took an engagement session in NYC and this specific picture was taken in Greenwich. This picture reflects our personality the most and we’ll put this as our cover, the engagement pictures photobook will be displayed at the reception of the wedding, coming up in December.
Thanks!
Elaine

Hey Vane,
I have wanted to make a Blurb book for so long! Here is the image we would use for the cover our Polaroid guest book, inspired by none other than – your blog!
Thanks!
Emily
