Contest #2 - Bye Bye Blog

It's time to say "goodbye" to this blog! We are going to transition to the website, which also acts as a blog. It will streamline all of the Flossy information to one place, so you won't have to jump from site to site. is now the #1 spot for everything Flossy. Any new contests, photos, ideas, information, etc. will be posted on the website.

Now for the contest info...

I want to know your favorite paper idea from the past few weddings. Please vote under the contest post on the new website. The items you are voting on:

Sarah and Jason's Seating Chart board

Melanie and Kirk's Program Fans

Melissa and Bryan's Candy Tins (which also acted as seating escort cards)

Leah and Ryan's Personalized M&M Shot Glasses (which also acted as seating escort cards)

Aimee and Matthew's little Booklet Programs

Jenna and Michael's Menus

Julia and Mike's round escort cards hanging in the tree

I will randomly draw the winner from the voters of the winning paper item. The winner will receive 25 personalized notecards or 15% off of a future order. The bride and groom with the winning paper product will also receive a 15% discount off of a future order. This discount would be great to use for Christmas cards as well!

Don't Forget!

Some paper items that clients often overlook for their weddings:

  • Thank You Notes
  • Favor Cards
  • Menus
  • Reserved Signs for ceremony aisles
  • Programs
  • Escort Cards/ Place Cards
  • Reserved Family Table Signs
  • Bridal Party Gifts
  • Information cards/booklets for welcome gifts for out of town guests

These items have the ability to add to the decor and ambiance of the event. They can make your family and friends feel welcome, and they help with the organization and flow of the event. It's important for people to know where to sit :) If anyone thinks of anything else, feel free to comment!

Arizona Bride Best of 2009

I was informed that Flossy Stylish Design is a finalist in the Arizona Bride Magazine Best of 2009 readers' choice awards in the "Best Invitations" category! They announced the top three finalists for each category after the voting closed, and the winner will be announced in June at an awards reception.

I am honored to be nominated in the top three! Thanks to everyone who voted. I am SO very appreciative. My mom, Sandy Walker of In Awe Weddings, was also nominated in the Best Wedding Planner category. If you know her, you know that she is probably the hardest working person on earth!

Thanks again! I will let you know the results, but again, it's an honor simply to be nominated.

Maeghan's Baby Shower

My mom (Sandy Walker of In Awe Weddings) had the pleasure of planning Maeghan and Nick's wedding, and I was able to assist her. We had so much fun with them and were able to get to know Maeghan's family. I was thrilled when my mom told me that Maeghan was expecting a little one and that we had been asked to help plan a baby shower.

Sandy, along with Maeghan's parents, decided on a vintage baby shower theme. It was held at The Boulders in Scottsdale. Thanks to Robyn at the Boulders for all of her help! The Flower Studio did the BEAUTIFUL flowers and AZ Cakes created the cake, which was a work of art...

For the invitations, I used an Envelopments cocoa polka dots z-card. The mom-to-be and her family and friends flew down from back east, so we had an itinerary of all the fun events they had planned for the weekend. I created the baby carriage artwork, which was inspired by the vintage theme.

We had so much fun at the shower... the food was amazing, I laughed a lot, and it was so much fun to be able to spend time with Maeghan and her family and friends.

Blog Slacker

I've been seriously slacking on my blogging responsibilities. Unexpectedly, my February turned into a crazy month for wedding invitations. I am very excited about the new invitation creations. I've been able to design invites to beach weddings in Maui (wish I was going) and fun, colorful, yet elegant invitations to a wedding at the Botanical Gardens. I can feel Spring coming when I design baby and wedding shower invitations. I will post photos as soon as I have them.

Don't forget to visit the new website at and feel free to leave comments on either this blog or the website. Also, remember to vote for your favorite Arizona vendors for the annual "Best of" awards for Arizona Bride Magazine. You need to vote for at least six vendors at Look for “Best of Bride” on the tab. You can vote one time. I would appreciate your vote for invitations (Kelsey Murrietta of Flossy Stylish Design) and a vote for Sandy Walker of In Awe Weddings for best Wedding Planner. Voting closes March 1st, 2009. If you need help choosing other vendors, just e-mail me and let me know!

The Shopping Mama

One of my favorite new clients has an absolutely adorable blog called The Shopping Mama. She finds great deals and cute stuff and blogs about it. You should definitely check it out! Yesterday she featured some thank-you notes we designed for her son and said some very nice things about Flossy :). I know it will be a blog that you look at often!

Jenna Catherine Photography

I love to work with people who are just starting a new business. I remember the difficulties I faced, and I appreciate all of the people who helped me along the way.

Jenna Campos is passionate about photography. She loves taking photos of families and babies, as well as doing maternity shoots and weddings. She commissioned me to help her with a logo and business card design, and together we created something that reflects her personality and vision for her business.

***On a side note, I update my new website often... so make sure you check out There are some cute Valentines! Let me know what you think.
