Destination Sexy Can

Saving up for a future trip can be
hard work, but as long as you have
some where as beautiful as this to
deposit your savings it makes it easier.
Mom's can give you the urge to to travel
all over the world and taken in the sights.

The vintage style of the can is so beautiful!

About Vintage Scrapping
(Click here for more information)

Vintage scrapbookers try to make their projects resemble family albums from the late 1800s and early 1900s. Trademarks of the vintage style include:

~Pages that make liberal use of brown, tan, cream, black, grey, and other neutral colors
~Embellishments such as buttons, keys, old postcards, and pressed flowers
~Use of newspapers, handwritten letters, or maps as background elements
~A collage-inspired design, as opposed to the clean and simple look favored by contemporary scrapbook artists
~Handwritten journaling
~Use of script or typewriter fonts for title treatments
~An emphasis on projects that include genealogical research

While the vintage style doesn't appeal to everyone, it can be fun to try this look even if you normally take a more modern approach to your projects. Part of the appeal of scrapbooking is experimenting with different creative approaches!
