She enlisted the help of car manufacturer Hyundai to make the earth drawing, that has now broken a world record for its size.
The car company used eleven sedans to draw the message on the land in Nevada’s Delamar Dry Lake, that read ‘Steph [hearts] you!’ using coordinates and a helicopter.
Her father took a picture of the image from space to show his daughter that her plan had worked.
Measuring 5,556,411.86 square metres or 59,808,480.26 square feet, the Guinness World Record has now declared it the largest tire track image ever.
The scheme has been made into a video for Hyundai’s New Thinking Campaign.

11 Hyundai Genesis vehicles were used to create the incredible image, carefully planned to resemble a replica of a handwritten message from 12-year-old Stephanie to her astronaut father watching from space.
Delamar Dry Lake in Nevada was chosen as the optimal destination for the Guinness World Records attempt. The image, of the words 'Steph ♥'s You', was designed to be visible from a distance of 300 kms - with the 11 Hyundai Genesis cars creating lines 30 metres wide on the desert floor.
With the pair separated for seven months as Stephanie's father undergoes a lengthy mission, the project brought an emotional connection and an impressive new world record, confirmed by Guinness World Records adjudicators on January 18th, 2015.
Experts from Korea, Europe, and the United States worked together to create the 5.55km image - similar in size to New York City's Central Park.
The resulting video, titled 'A Message To Space' has been viewed millions of times on YouTube.

The earlier articles on the Internet might as well have included the girl's last name and name of her father.  After all, there are only a few people at the Space Center.
  
ABC
reporters say that "Astronaut Terry Virts, who is currently the  Commander of Expedition 43 has a teenage daughter named Stephanie".
