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 […]
Some know I’ve been on an official break, but it’s time to get rolling with new Silhouette Cameo Freebies and what better to get started than with DOUGHNUTS? I’m tellin’ you, all I did while I drew these up was salivate over the idea of a 40 minute drive to the nearest Krispy Kreme factory. […]
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 […]
Some of my favorite things to make with my Silhouette Cameo are different types of wall art. I’ve shared a few of them here with walk-throughs, tutorials and downloads. Since the beginning of September marks the start of Meteorological Fall I could no longer control my desires to indulge in orange, red and brown. I […]
A few weeks back we made a Whirly Pop in Illustrator. Thanks to the never-ending heat, summer imagery is rarely far from my mind. While that tutorial was born from fantasies about midways and carnival rides, this week’s tutorial is born of beach memories. In this quickie but goody we’ll explore some shortcuts and incredibly useful […]
Who’s up for another Ten Minute Tutorial? You can’t go wrong with these guys, they’re just so easy, fast and will teach you something useful! Last week we learned to make Whirly Pops in Illustrator (though that took a bit longer than 10 minutes, I’d guess). This week we’re going to make a wood texture […]
Did you know that those awesome giant lollipops that Cosmo Kramer was eating in the backwards episode of Seinfeld are real? And that they’re called whirly pops? I was pretty young when I first saw that episode and I had no recollection of ever seeing those before. I called them The Kramer Lollipop. I’ve since […]
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 […]
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.
