BOOOO ... I Need More Memory on my Computer!

I've shot the same video three times now and can't download it to my computer because I don't have enough memory! Since downloading MDS I don't have much memory left. Guess I'm going to have to purchase some more memory. Wouldn't that be nice if you could purchase more memory for your brain???

So ... here's some pictures of the Make & Takes that we did at Saturday's workshop. I'll also walk you through a neat technique that Cindy Custers shared with me.

I don't know what the heck is wrong here ... but my photos are all turned the right way in my file and when I upload them to blogger, they're turned sideways. I guess it's just not my day today! Oh well ... crook your neck and look at them sideways. They're cute, huh?

Here is a neat glitzy technique shared with us at Caroline LeBel's Stampin' Palooza event in Toronto by Cindy Custer. In an empty fine mist spray bottle place some rubbing alcohol and about 1/2 teaspoon of Shimmery Paint. This is the same method we used with Pearl Ex to give your card stock a shimmery effect. The Champagne Mist is beautiful. I have the Frosted White and it gives the darker cardstock a silvery glimmer. Very pretty! Shake well and apply a fine spritz to your cardstock. The cardstock will curl immediately, so place a book or something heavy on it while drying. You can use your heat tool to speed up the drying process. The glitter doesn't rub off after drying, like the Pearl Ex does.

This is the card that Cindy shared with us. Isn't it elegant? Wish you could see the sparkle on it. It's spectacular!

Here's some cute birthday cards using the Sweet Treat Cups. There's a secret hidden compartment where the recipient can get into the treats without ruining the card.

Can you see the clouds at the top of this balloon card? When you open the card, pull the clouds and the trap door is revealed to get the treats.

Just make sure that you only secure the three sides to the piece of cardstock inside the card. Leave the top open so you can insert your pull tab which will cover the hole to the treat cup.

Well ... off to see where I can buy more memory!! Have a great day!!

Mom, you need an external hard drive, and store some data on that as you go along.

Can you back up your hard drive on an external hard drive?? I would do that and then defragment your hard drive to clean out the sludge and it will open more memory. Maybe see if you know someone that has done this before to help you out if you haven't done it before. Good luck!

Darling cards. I want to learn how to do that compartments with the balloons. Help me. :) Sound like things are going well.

External hard drives are fairly inexpensive. We've gotten some from Costco. Good luck. :)

“Wouldn't that be nice if you could purchase more memory for your brain?” – If that is the case, then we don’t have to worry about forget a thing in our life! Good move on upgrading your memory. A big memory can make room for all your videos and photos. But I would advise that you get yourself an external drive for backups.[Benita Bolland]

Well, there are applications that really consume a lot of space in your memory. This is why people go for a memory upgrade. With this, you can even install more applications. No matter how many applications you run, with more than enough RAM, you’ll still be able to browse the internet across multiple tabs without a hitch!

Well, it’s really frustrating if things don’t’ go according to your plan or to what you’re expecting. But, what else could you do? Rather than being upset, it’s better that you go with the flow and deal it with. By then, you’ll find that the situation isn’t that bad. ;) Anyhow, I think it’s really good to increase your computer’s memory, so you wouldn’t have a problem in storing all your card designs!
