This is the last Saturday of February and overall I’m pretty pleased with my efforts during Frugal February! I wasn’t perfect, but I did break out of some bad habits that were developing. There are still a few days of February left, and I expect to be fine on the no-shopping front until they go […]
Like so many other posts around here, this one starts off with, ‘So I was walking around Target and… .” I can’t help it. I love design, I love shopping, I don’t think I bought anything I shouldn’t have considering it’s Frugal February (welllll, I did buy a mug I’ve wanted for a while? I […]
Hey, guys! Sunday (yesterday) was Valentine’s Day, so I was a little torn on the idea of putting up a new freebie. I had this one in mind, but it felt a little odd to put one up that wasn’t a Valentine’s Day-themed design, but also a bit late to share a Valentine’s Day freebie! […]
One of my first Silhouette projects, way back in Spring or Summer of 2015, was a roses shadowbox. This is a common use for Silhouette machines- rolled flowers, that is. They’re easy enough and lovely enough that the work vs reward comes out heavily on the side of reward. I designed those roses myself, because […]
It’s been a while since I updated on my general cameo projects. There have been lots of freebies making the rounds, but not much about my personal projects. I made several Christmas gifts. Every year, Angel receives an ornament for our tree. This year, I wanted something to reflect that he had started school but […]
Inspired by hearts and love and Valentine’s day on the horizon, I have a brand new Silhouette freebie for you! This adorable .studio3 file is a fully scalable vector graphic you can print, or cut, or print AND cut! Yay! This freebie is for personal use only, but it is available for purchase commercially in […]
Do you know what today is? Are you excited? You should be. I know I am. You still don’t know? It’s Silhouette Sunday! This week I’m sharing a free cut file of one of my favorite projects to date. I wanted to do something special for my sweet son’s adorable Kindergarten class. I wanted something […]
It’s almost time for another Project Ten Can. Or a project 20 can. Or a project ‘Don’t Buy Any More Candles You Freaking Psycho!’ Yep. If I publicly admit what I’ve done I’ll be able to move on. So we can all look forward to that. Anyway, here’s a little video DIY for these decorative stacking […]
Christmas is one week away, and it’s high time to start getting those gifts buttoned and bowed. It’s been high on my to-do list to create my own gift tags for years, and this year I was finally able to design them and bring them to life with my Silhouette machine. And being that I […]
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.
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.
