This past Saturday, Sage turned 11.
To celebrate, we invited a few of her friends over for an art party.
Now, we'd already been thinking of an art party for her next birthday last year.
So, when Betsy Veldman's Masterpiece kit came out,
we had to get it -- it was exactly what we needed!
We used the stamps/dies to create the invitations
(which I forgot to photograph before we delivered-- oops!)
and the treat bags.
We had the dining room table set up with butcher paper
and canvases before the girls arrived:
Their first activity was painting canvases with acrylic paint.
Sage and I had created place cards for the guests using the Masterpiece kit
-- and those sweet easel dies!
I printed the names on the computer, trimmed the cardstock to 2" square
and stamped a butterfly from the Masterpiece kit on each one.
This is the canvas Sage painted -- it will go perfectly in her room!
The girls got to hang out for a bit -- I think they created Miis for themselves on our Wii U.
Our next activity was painting on watercolour paper with watercolours.
After we cleaned up from that, it was time for our snack, which I set up on our piano.
I added a couple of the watercolour pictures Sage & Clara had painted.
Using the same idea as the placecards, we created frames on easels for the food.
For the cupcake toppers, Sage and I diecut the printed easels from the Masterpiece kit.
I think the girls would be super disappointed if I didn't serve Butter Crunch at
Sage's party -- it's definitely a favourite!
Thanks for looking!
