    Create a Simple Album Cover

    Design by Erin Clarkson

    Keep the cover of your mini album simple with a large title printed on white cardstock, a few strips of different color cardstock, and minimal accents. The fewer accents on the cover, the fewer elements that may fall off as people look through the mini album.
