Hello hello, I am Beshka Kueser (bckueser). I live in Germany with my hubs and two kiddos. We moved to Europe in 2013 and like to spend most of our free time traveling. When we aren't busy traveling we are homeschooling, grilling some good eats, going to soccer games, watching movies, playing games, and trying to learn German. We also like to do our own things and mine is Project Life. This will be my fourth year doing project life and I love it as much as the day I started. You can find me at bckueser.com and designing for Digital Design Essentials, Gossamer Blue, and Jot Magazine.
Guest Design Q&A
1. How long have you been doing Project Life and why did you start?
Since 2012. Once upon a time I had done traditional scrapbooking but I left it all behind in 2007. During the spring of 2012 I was scrolling through Pinterest and came upon a PL spread, I was instantly curious about scrapping in pockets! A look here + a look there and before you know it I was anxiously awaiting my first box of PL supplies to arrive on my doorstep. I have been loving it ever since!
2. How would you describe your scrapbooking style?
Clean + colorful.
3. What scrapbookers have influenced you most?
I think the two that stand out the most for me would be Ali Edwards and Marcy Penner, they each have a unique perspective on a clean style that I really admire. I always love seeing what these ladies create.
4.What is your favorite thing about kit clubs?
I love kit clubs because I enjoy happy mail + I love that it is all coordinated. They are time savers and take the guess work out so I can just play!
5. What are your 5 favorite scrapbooking items?
Five things I am loving right now – the WRMK Instagram Albums, it's PL mini style; Becky Higgins journal & filler cards, love the fun colors in the 'My Life” themed card set; stamps..always stamps and I love the CT 'Live Inspired' set, those coffee stamps would get lots of use; paints + watercolors are another fave, and thickers, like the Kal Barteski Black Foam Twins Word Thickers, you can never go wrong with thickers!
6. How would you describe the Citrus Twist March Pocket Life kit and what do you enjoy most about it?
Warm + playful. I enjoyed that it wasn't my usual style, normally I go for bolder colors + a clean design, I had fun playing with the warmer colors + mixing all the playful patterns.
Here is a peek at her work with the March PL Kit.
My Studio: In 2013 we moved to Germany and the hubs found us an apartment in the city. I figured we would be cramped for space but it turns out the apartment spanned the entire 4th floor and there were 5 bedrooms. So the kiddos picked theirs, we set up our room + a guest room, and that left one room. I quickly claimed it and it does triple duty for our family as a studio + homeschool + office. It is the biggest space I have ever had with the best lighting, I love it! Oh, and please excuse the mess. :)
