- Read time: 4 minutes

Welcome back to another exciting, Thanksgiving edition of our weekly Watch Along Wednesday series! As this month is all about gratitude, we thought that it was only right to chat about our Precious Memories Collection - it's the perfect set of dies to help you create a project to show someone how much they truly mean to you.
This whole collection has been designed around the idea of bringing beautiful and interactive memory books to life. There's a whole host of sets to collect and experiment with, and David covers most of them in today's video. If you've been tempted by any of the die sets, make sure you take a look and get a bit of inspiration!
By capturing the moments that are worth remembering in a homemade memory book, you'll be able to give your finished project as a gift and show a loved one you care. Hit play on the video below!
You might notice that this video is a little bit longer than the usual videos from David, and that's because he takes us through each of the sets to show how the pages are put together. This is great if you've been eyeing up individual sets or even the whole range, because you can take a look at them in action!
Included in this collection is:
Album Spine - contains three dies to create the edge that holds all of your pages together. With three dies included, you will be able to cut out and form the spine, as well as create sentiments for the front. Once you have created the spine, the pages that have been cut and formed from the other sets can be easily attached to produce a pretty book of happy memories!
Waterfall Card - contains 23 dies to create a flipbook inside of your memory book. Using a pull tab, you can quickly flick between your favourite photos, notes or tickets in a compact, folded design.
Mini Card and Envelope - contains 14 dies to create openings and envelopes in your memory books to help you slot cards inside. With extra key and flourish embellishments, you'll be able to decorate your envelopes as much as you like.
Tabbed Page and Purse - contains 11 dies to create scalloped edges on pages that include cute, purse-style pockets. Inside, you can store little photos or meaningful trinkets for readers of your memory book to discover.
Twist and Pop Card - contains 17 dies to create a page that twists open and pops out at the turning of the page. This will add extra movement and fun into your completed memory book.
Mini Pocket and Accessories - contains 15 dies to create little pockets for storing photos, note or trinkets inside. With a decorative edge, a key-shaped die and so much more, this is a must have from the collection.
Frames and Accessories - contains 22 dies to help you cut ornate frames, labels and words to help you embellish your memory books with ease.
Each of these die sets have been carefully designed to provide you with all the elements needed to create interactive pages to spice up your memory books. Sure, looking at photos in an album is lovely, but having them pop out of the page is just that little bit more exciting!
If you didn't fancy using these dies for memory books, they're also perfect for creating cards and scrapbook pages that have a bit of personality. They're just so versatile and fun, and the perfect tools to help you say a little thank you to someone special.
