Today's the day!!!  The secrets out!!!  Announcing the Simply Charmed Blog Hop!!!!!  Isn't Valentines Day great!!!  A day focused on telling those we love just how much they mean to us.  Fabulous!!!   And what better way to show someone you care than to give them something special made by you just for them!!



So that is why I asked some of my amazing friends from blog land to join me in bringing you the Simply Charmed Blog Hop.  10 days of Valentine tutorials and giveaways kicking off on February 1st.  So here are the amazingly talanted ladies that will be joining me!!!

February 2 - Heather from Quilt Story with the Heart Garland Tutorial
February 3 - Melissa from Lilac Lane with the Be Mine Tote Tutorial

February 13 - Corey from Little Miss Shabby with the Shabby Heart Pillow

February 14 - Happy Valentines Day and the Grand Prize Winner Announcement!!!!

Thank you so much to each of these ladies.  I have had so much fun working with each of them on this Blog Hop.   They are all so very talented and the projects they have created are just amazing!!!  Trust me when I say, you are all in for a treat!!!

The Simply Charmed title came about because each of us created our project using 1 Charm Pack and  added yardage if necessary but only for backing, lining ect.  The bulk of each project is made using just the 1 Charm Pack of Always and Forever by Deb Strain.   And trust me,  you are going to be amazed with what you can create using a single charm pack!!! 



And what fun would a Blog Hop be without Giveaways???

Thanks to the generosity of our amazing sponsors, there will be a giveaway along with each of the 10 tutorials.    So when the time comes, make sure to enter at each of the contributors tutorial post for your chance to win some major fabric cash.

     
Fat Quarter Shop has graciously sponsored the fabric used in making the tutorials.
They will also be sponsoring the Grand Prize of  a $200.00 Gift Certificate to 1 lucky reader.

Burgundy Buttons has graciously sponsored three $25.00 Gift Certificates for 3 lucky readers.

 The Intrepid Thread has graciously sponsored three $25.00 Gift Certificates for 3 lucky readers.

       The Green Fairy has graciously sponsored three $25.00 Gift Certificates for 3 lucky readers.

A huge thank you goes out to each of our sponsors!!!  They are a huge part of making this Blog Hop.  So pop on over to their shops (their icon's are links) and find the special Charm Pack or 2 for you.  (And whatever else might tickle your fancy :)  

And last but not least, we would love it if you joined the Simply Charmed Blog Hop Flickr Group.  This will be a place to show us your amazing projects made using the Simply Charmed tutorials!!!  We can't wait to see your own personal take on these special gifts :)

  13. What happened to the DNP tutorial? I tried to bookmark it and save it and print it, but it wouldn't let me, and now it's gone. I really like the pattern for NICU quilts. I can get two quilts out of your instructions for one.

    What gives?

  17. I cannot wait I just made a baby quit using Connecting Threads Hope Chest, charm packs (2) working on the binding now. I love charm packs because it gives you at least one piece of each fabric in the line. Suggest if you really like something buy 2 before they are go forever. It has happened to me to many times. Thank you for setting it up. I will be back. www.intheboondocks.blogspot.com
