Here is a layout I did using Crate Paper's - DIY Shop as a Design Team project for The Scrapbooking Studio. This line has a very vintage feel and the colors are great. I used a handful of the patterned papers, the ephemera pack and the chipboard as well, all from the collection. I cut all my pieces down as needed, then I shaded around all edges with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam. After shading, I distressed my edges with a bone folder, you could also use a distressing tool.
I also used a few of my wood veneers from Studio Calico.
I encourage you to give it a try! You can find this collection at The Scrapbooking Studio.
