Decorating the cover of this scrapbook for my nephew this morning got me wondering do you all add design to yours? I haven't seen too many scrapbook covers posted here on sb.com. I have only done it to a few of my scrapbooks but when I see how nice they can turn out I'm thinking I should add a little something to all of them and make the outside look as nice as the inside.

I never decorate the covers although I have intended too. Mostly I use the leather albums though so I am not sure how that would look.

My dd gave my one of the barenaked AC albums and it is still 'unclothed' after 4 years.

Thanks for the inspiration to get that done at least.

This is why I slightly prefer albums with windows in the cover, though I loved the album for my Hawaii album (it had a little bookplate in the corner of the cover that coordinated with the rest of the cover's design, so I could slip a title in), but I've done special covers, gluing stuff directly to the album, for my recipe album and one of the baby books I've made.

I do, because I have albums like yours with the little window in front, but I rarely take pictures of the covers I do and upload them. My covers tend not to have pictures, but to instead have some pretty embellishments and include the date range of the layouts in the album (I do them chronologically).

By the way, your album cover is really cute!
