Hey, guys! This week I have an easy peasy freebie for Silhouette Sunday. It’s a four-leaf clover 4 ways! Yay! There are four clovers on the mat in this file. Two have no lettering, and two of them are duplicates of the second clover with the words ‘KISS’ and ‘CUTE’ in the leaves (petals?). These […]
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 […]
With my new equipment and applications mostly sorted out, I’m finally able to start doing screencast tutorials! I’m very excited to bring this new type of content to my site. I am open to tutorial suggestions and requests. I have a few on my list right now, but I’m not opposed to seeing it grow […]
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 […]
I love art, and decorations, and doing things myself! This spring I talked Kevin into talking me into spending way too much money on some new equipment to bring my art to life, and I’ve been quite obsessed with this machine ever since. This little cutie is a Silhouette Cameo and I’ve fallen quite in […]
Kevin bought me a beautiful new computer back in October (for my birthday). It has taken me seven months to finally get Adobe Camera Raw sorted out and functional. With it finally working, Kevin invited us to the Tulip Festival taking place at Thanksgiving Point. I’d turned him down all week but it was hard […]
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.
