You can use the frame shapes as a basic design to create an abstract artwork using blending modes
Have to say that the vector artworks (though they look great) can be a little less than colorful if you are just using them in black and white but you can always color them using Photoshop gradients and patterns and solid colors but you can add more than that by using styles as well (and if you convert the artwork into a smart object) you can also add additional styles and also smart filters and smart adjustments to re-color the artwork in 1000s of ways. How to add styles to the edges ??? You can re-color them in numerous ways by using them with the above effects.
A basic curved frame shape from pack 195
You can use a single item and just add to an image using paths / selections etc but you can always modify the vector artwork in 1000s of ways by using a number of approaches. The key thing is to add the item as a layer and as a layer, it is a vector made up of a number of points and you can simply select the points for that and drag them from their existing position by using the direct selection tool. You can create 1000s of variants using that approach. You can also use the same vector layer by combining it with the current layer using the set operations - the key thing is to stop the 'new layer' option (on the top bar) and select the combine command (or subtract etc) and then add the same artwork or other layers to the work - you can then finish off and use the merge command to blend them all into one vector which can be saved to the CSH panel via the define command in the edit menu. You can also use much the same approach with the freeform pen tool as all the paths created there can be combined with the original vector layer. That too can also be modified further using the direct selection tool found in the toolbox Tutorial showing creating of variant vectors in PS [Youtube]
Additional paths can be added to the frame shapes in seconds like the spots above via the CSH tool
A quick video showing the use of some of the presets from the pack 195. The video shows the use of the quick mask feature combined with the assets and how you can 1) use the frame as a layer 2) use the frame as a selection for the pasting of paths into 3) applying special effects to the mask. The video shows the use in Adobe ® Photoshop ® CC CS6 but the same basic approach can be used in other versions. In PS Elements, you can also use the frame curved custom shapes with the powerful cookie cutter tool to create instant frames (would love to see Photoshop to add a basic border creation feature but I can't see that happening any time soon but we can always hope) [Youtube] Video showing the use of the curved artworks and how to create them
They can be used as a great source for pattern presets via the define pattern. Above, one of the curved designs has been defined as a tile
The frame shapes can be used as a great source for masks to use with all kinds of images, just use the layer menu and layer mask
You can combine multiple frame shapes over and over to create far more complex designs.
They can also be used to create abstract designs especially when combined with effects such as the filters found in the filter gallery. Above, three frame shapes have been combined and turned into a halftone design
You can combine the artworks with type in numerous ways
You can use the presets multiple times as a layer. The artwork was then re-colored using the black and white adjustment layer
You can use the 3D features to create all kinds of abstract designs and models from the frame shapes. The above was combined also with a number of oil paint filters in Photoshop
