For Spring Break it was my pleasure to entertain Angel each day, as well as his brothers for the morning and afternoon. Angel had been asking for a trip to the aquarium in Draper, Utah for quite a bit so that’s what we did day 1. I really enjoy it, and it isn’t hard to […]
Hey guys! Today’s post is quick and dirty. I have a new, untested freebie for ya. If you have any problems with it, please let me know. I plan to make a couple of muscle shirts for a couple of little boys this week, and when I get them made and modeled I will be […]
Hey! With Easter around the corner I’ve been working on quite a few things. Today, I’m sharing two new FREE cut files for Silhouette Studio! One is an easy print-and-cut for stand-up Easter eggs and the second is a little treat box with egg cut-outs. I’ve been very into box design lately, it’s challenging but […]
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 […]
In this video I’ll show you how to work with .dxf files in Silhouette Studio basic or free edition. The file I am working with is my original design and it is available for purchase at Echoia Design on Etsy and can be accessed directly through this link: Lord Knows We Need More Bows . […]
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 […]
Hey, guys! I wanted to share a quick, fun freebie. This design is free for you to use personally or commercially. If you have a blog, web site, facebook, twitter etc. I’d appreciate a mention! I thought those of us who don’t drink could still use a cheeky saying for our mugs, so I created […]
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 […]
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.
