Chicago is full of truly talented people. While the Merchandise Mart is swarmed today with people visiting the One of a Kind Show other local businesses are right around the corner providing us with their amazing craft.
One such company is called Fixin it Up. The owner, Michelle, provides pre-made cards and custom projects. She has made a variety of projects such as specialty cards, banners, and she just created a memory book for me as a gift to someone. I told her the memories I wanted to illustrate and sent her a photograph of one. She used multiple pages to bring the memories to life and even made a small section on each page for me to write personal notes.
Below are some more examples of various cards.
