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 […]
In the spirit of giving, I have a couple of new cut files for all you freebie fiends! There are two unique snowflakes in the Let it Snow cut file, and a little bunch of Holly in the Joy to the World file. Both are made with fonts I embellished to create the right feel […]
Merry Christmas, Freebie Lovers! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving, even if you’re not American. I had the typical giant meal with family and worked on this post : ) I quite enjoyed designing and drawing this set up in Illustrator. I envisioned it as a painting, so I used them to […]
I do not happen to be a person who is against preparing for holidays in advance. When you take them seriously, hand make things or are just busy, if you want things to go the way you want them to go, you have to be ready! I created this file with the vision of using […]
One of the primary reasons I bought my Silhouette machine was so that I could personalize drinkware. I love mugs, cups, bottles, tumblers, shot glasses etc. I can’t get enough! Combining that with my love of pink and my huge ego I personalized my first water bottle. Personalizing Starbucks cups is a big […]
It’s January 3rd, reserve your judgments! I get to have six glorious weeks of red and pink everything and I am going to take full advantage. Full advantage meaning that I picked up all of this stuff before Christmas but exercised enough self control to simply put it away until after the new year. The […]
Well! Fall is in full swing and Halloween is on its way. Recently I showed you guys how to make a simple pumpkin vector in Adobe Illustrator CS4 using an ellipse tool, the appearance panel and a few hand-drawn paths. Today, we’re going to turn that guy into a Jack-O-Lantern and wrap him up in […]
When I lived in the South, I didn’t ‘get’ the Fall thing. The perfect weather, the waiting-for-the-snow-while-also-enjoying-the-last-bit-of-sun (thank you, inversion!) thing. The not-going-to-leave-the-house-from-November-to-March-so-you-might-as-well-decorate thing. But I’ve grown since. Now I enjoy every season of the year for everything it’s worth, and with Autumn coming on us soon I’m more than ready and excited. Decorating projects […]
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.
