This frame cost roughly $2 in materials. Well, it’s made of $2 worth of materials! The frame was $1 at Michaels. I designed all of the flourishes and adornments specifically for it in Illustrator, cut them out of shiny black Oracal 651 and applied after painting the frame white and sealing it with dishwasher safe mod podge. Which is weird because I have regular mod podge! Out of sight out of mind, I guess.

This was my first completed project with my cameo. I sent it to my grandmother as a surprise!

This flower is hanging on my wall above my desk. It cost about 20 cents or so to make (I had the shadowbox, but that was about $4).  If you’d like to cut it yourself there is a .DXF file you can download and use in Silhouette Studio in the blog post I wrote about it here: Design a Flower Cutout in Adobe Illustrator to Use With Your Silhouette Machine

My second project : ) Inspired by a group of amazing crafters I was excited to learn something new. This project was incredibly smooth, if somewhat time consuming. One of those things that makes you feel like you can totally -do- this!

I recently shared a walkthrough featuring this guy. Something I’m very proud of, made for that beautiful boy I started this post with! See my method here: I made a Spider-Man Light Box with Adobe Illustrator && my Silhouette Cameo!

And a set of birthday invites. The first birthday invites I’ve digitally designed, print and cut! Another confidence-booster : )

About EchoStenger.com

EchoStenger.com began in early 2013 as a side project of Echoia.com. Namely, Echoia Photography. Wanting to expand to include more varied content, it seemed only appropriate to change the site's title.

It currently is an outlet for many of my interests and passions. I share my work in and write tutorials for Adobe Illustrator, review products (mostly purchased by me), experiment with my Silhouette Cameo machine (hashtag vector in flesh!), share my day-to-day and still post photographs on a regular basis.

Thank you for visiting and coming along with me as I grow and seek out beauty in everything.

I am a Christian mom, girlfriend, dog-mom, cat-mom and pseudo step-mom. I take up hobbies faster than I can put them back down. I am from Texas, but currently reside in Utah.

I. Love. Air conditioning.

Fiona Apple.

Angel : My seraph son. I’ll likely speak of nothing and no one so much. Born October 2009. He likes the color orange blue and almost anything Marvel.

Veda : Black. Lab-like. Born Summer 2008. A life changer. Full name and title: Princess Darth Veda Jane Sultanfuss Stenger. Usually just Veda/Veda Jane when she’s bad. Also ‘Monster’. In your way? Just say, 'Scoot, Veda.'

Trinity : Rescued from the pound about 9 weeks of age, Summer 2009. I call her ‘Wiggle Bottoms’, 'Dummy' (lovingly, of course) or ‘Little Bit’. Big time cuddler.

Li : Dog cat. Scarier than both the dogs put together.
