Short bio: Hello, hello! I am Beshka and so excited to be guest designing today for AC! I currently live in Wiesbaden, Germany with my hubs & two kiddos. We are originally from Texas and have been living abroad for a year and a half now, we feel pretty lucky to have this opportunity! We travel a lot and when we are not traveling I am busy planning where we will travel to next! We have to see all we can while we are here right?! I am a stay at home momma, homeschooler, a maker, a blogger, and a baker. I love to hang out with my little fam, document the daily, drink coffee, go to the movies, and take long Sunday drives.

How did you get started scrapbooking? It all started with a gift. I was gifted a Creative Memories album + accessories after the birth of one of my kiddos. I had two thoughts: 1. “Oh this looks cool.” & 2. “Can more be done with this?”. Obviously sticking to the basics was never going to work for me and I started seeking out other supplies & things I could use to create my albums, I love the artistic & design aspects of memory keeping! An obsession was born… along with what I consider to be one of the cutest little babies ever!

What is your favorite American Crafts product? Honestly, I cannot give you just one answer! I have two favorites that throughout the years have always been 'go to' AC products for me, patterned paper & Thickers! You can always find these in my stash.

LOVE THIS by Beshka Kueser
 
Go big with a photo! I love creating 8 ½ x 11” spreads with large photos and I never worry about losing space because I can easily add titles + embellishments onto my photo as well as the rest of my page.

PROJECT LIFE SPREAD by Beshka Kueser
 
Go big in your pockets! You may not want to go so big as to fill your entire 12×12 pocket page but you can still go big without filling all of your pockets. Try printing a large photo or other insert to fill up 3 or more pockets, depending on your page style.

HELLO FRIEND CARD by Beshka Kueser
 
Not much of a card maker like myself? Go big with a main element/sentiment! I wanted to create a card I could send to a friend so I hand-cut “friend” so it would fill most of the card and I wouldn't have to stress over embellishing a lot to make it feel complete.

52 SUNDAYS: AN ART JOURNAL by Beshka Kueser
 
Tackle a big project you have been wanting to do in a small way. I wanted to join a 365 art journal project but I know that right now isn't the best time for me to tackle a project that big. So, I made myself a small journal and I am doing my own thing, instead of 365 I will do 52 Sundays!
