All Things Technical

As the proud new owner of a Cricut Expressions machine I just had to have a play with it, and thankfully an order for an anniversary card came in from a friend who likes all things colourful.

The bride's outfits on the day were teal and purple so I thought I'd tie these in with a bit of pink for romance. Now the husband isn't the overly gushy type and so for wording we went with something practical and to the point.

I loved making this card, the Cricut makes things so much easier.


Righto, now off to make a 30th birthday card for a man - why are men so difficult to craft and shop for?

LTC Gone Mobile

Well Little Tiger Creations has gone mobile. I'm now the proud owner of a shiny Blackberry Curve meaning that I can receive and reply to your emails wherever I am. I'm hoping that this will help us maintain the high levels of customer service that we offer by dealing with your queries as fast as possible.

I've been busy the last few days with wine charm designs and I'm not-so-patiently awaiting the arrival of new charms and beads so that I can create some new designs for you to choose from.

I hope you are all enjoying this glorious sunshine whilst it lasts.

Feel free to drop us an email with any questions to mail@littletigercreations.com and I can reply from my shiny new toy :)

That Oriental Feeling & Updates

We have added another online store to Little Tiger Creations! This shop will be for samples that we have designed and created that will not be used as standard designs for whatever reason and one off cards that we have made, well simply because we like making cards. This is a great opportunity to grab a little bargain, the best part - for a small additional cost we will personalise the chosen card to the occasion you require it for.



Oriental Feelings - This range is my favourite so far (do I say that every time?). I love the contrasting ribbons and patterns next to the black. We have a small stock supply of these cards left and they are available from our Bargain Store. The papers used to create the cards have been discontinued so get them whilst you can.


Getting Fluttery! - Little Tiger Creations have received an order for all things purple and fluttery. With a purple and butterflies theme for a wedding, the bride requires a variety of thank you cards, so watch this space for the designs that we come up with.

'Our Designs' Updated

I have updated the 'Our Designs' section of the website and I thought I would share my favourites.

This is an invitation to a rather classy Christmas night out that will be taking place this year, but I think it would be a fabulous design for a winter wedding!


This next design has to be one of my all time favourites. I just love the contrast of the gold on the black and the simplicity of it all. It can easily be adapted to suit, well any purpose really. Anniversary cards, Valentines day or a stunning wedding invitation.



Our 10% discount will be ending tonight at midnight so if you are requiring any personalised greeting cards please do get your order in today.

Fathers Day

Well it's too late now to be out buying Fathers' Day cards and presents (well it's not for those of you who don't work at the weekend!) so I thought I'd share the last minute designs of this week for the big day.

For a stepfather who hates the term stepfather... I've used little DoCrafts stamps for this one and coloured them in with trusty colouring pencils. A fan of all things blue it was obvious what the backing colour should be.



For a dad who loves all things shiny and simple... My fingers hurt from this one, I should really invest in a die cutter than doing it the old fashioned way of printing out templates and cutting them out using a craft knife!

Revamp!

After reviewing the website I have completely revamped the pages. It should be much easier to find what you are looking for now and simpler to place an order.

On a wee side note, here's the latest from LTC. The specifications were for an elegant 21st birthday card with no mention of cocktails or other alcohol forms as the lass is pregnant. I really enjoyed making this card.


On another tangent - our associate Scottish Wedding Planning is due to be featured in Wedding Ideas! Watch this space for more details.

Robots & Birthdays

I've had this robot paper lying about the house for ages and I did that thing where you tell yourself you'll hold onto it because you will get around to doing something with it. Well I finally got around to using it. I absolutely love the colours and simplicity of it, and I think it matches my nephews bright personality perfectly. I know I'm a bit keen since his birthday isn't until September, but you can never be too prepared!



Do you have birthdays coming up? Little Tiger Creations is offering 10% off all cards until the 21st June 2009.

LTC & Scottish Wedding Planning

We have teamed up with Scottish Wedding Planning to offer helpful tips and guides to brides to be. Kate, as a bride to be in the run up to her own wedding blogs about the important lessons she has learned during the planning process. Particularly helpful for Scottish brides to be, but there is something for everyone, it details more about the legal side (which is surprisingly different to that of the rest of the UK) and what you have to do to get the ball rolling.

This blog is a great start if you are feeling a little daunted by your to do list and all that comes with being a bride (or indeed a groom) to be.

You can find Kate’s blog here. There is also a link to her blog on our Associates & Links page on the main Little Tiger Creations website.

On a more personal note, Kate is a close friend of mine and as someone who has watched her wedding grow from the announcement to the little touches she is so proud of, I cannot be anything other than impressed. I thought I was organised as a bride to be, but Kate puts me to shame. With ten months to go there is not much she has left to do allowing her to relax, deal with any issues that may arise without the added pressure of timescales and deadlines but really just to let her enjoy the excitement that is such a big part of the experience.

Kate has asked Little Tiger Creations to design her table names and her place names. Photo's will be appearing shortly. We have also designed and made little name plaques for her flower girl and page boy, a fantastic way to thank them for their role in her big day.

The Beginning!

The beginning is always a good place to start I suppose. Little Tiger Creations was born after serious pressure from my friends and families to take my arty plutterings a bit more serious. I've made handmade cards for years and whenever someone needs a poster or an invite, they seem to get sent my way. After making all our wedding stationery and having such a phenomenal response I started LTC.

Offering handmade and digitally designed cards allows for maximum personalisation of our items. I love incorporating photo's into everything.

The website address is www.littletigercreations.com and should you wish any further information please do not hesitate to contact me on jac@littletigercreations.com
