By using the Close To My Heart My Reflections Crusin' paper, even postcards from a vacation 10yrs ago look great! I used the Filling Spaces layout pattern from Cherish, one of our great How-To Books.  Then I added a little sewing and a few CTMH embellishments; Number Plates Z1712, Bottle Caps Z1691 and Foundry Metal Accessories *Binder Clips Z1711. Ink up all your edges with Black CTMH ink; direct ink to paper technique and you have a great way to show off your or photos (or even postcards). 
*Binder clips may be attached directly to your layout with a brad or used as I did as a pull up on the envelope journal pocket hidden on the back of the layout.
