Hi lovely crafty friends, it appears that crafting is a great way to meet interesting and amazing like-minded creatives. And I have met a new friend, after a few months of keeping her to myself, I am ready to share her with you
She shines with a sparkling personality and she’s incredibly colourful. she’s also great at bonding and even though she wasn’t into it that much I introduced her to papercrafts.
And she loves it, come meet her.
A complete introduction to Angelina, all techniques and ideas are shown in the video tutorial. Make sure to watch it to get all the best tips and tricks.

Meet the lovely Angelina it is a sparkling iridescent colourful super fine synthetic fibre.
The firbres are heat bondable, all colours except for four out of 21 colours. Lemoncello, Evening Sky, Magnetic Storm Green-Blue and Magnetic Storm Gold that are semi heat bondable.
Fused together the fibres are still very well visible but are now bonded into a thin film. In the video, I show you two ways to fuse Angelina without the need of using an iron.
And of course, I had to test Angelina with dies and that works perfect, with outline shape dies. Intricate dies can work as well but need more effort and only if they are not too detailed, is what I’ve found.
After making a pattern with the circles I ran them through the laminator again. This fused them together and it worked well bonding them the second time.
Depending on the angle you look at it the colours change, For this card I made a frame with a circle cut out of the middle.
Cutting the fused fibers with the Tim Holtz Comfort Trimmer ( SBC ) worked perfectly as well.
Mixing different colours can give you very interesting patterns with a stunning result. It has a bit of a wool-ish feel to it but then in a flat film. Perfect for using on cards and in paper crafting or Art Journals to add a bit of sparkle.
I hope you are as intrigued by the lovely Angelina as much as I am. There are lots more ways on how you can use these gorgeous fibres, let me know if you would like to see more ideas in the comments below.
Thanks for stopping by and make sure to keep on crafting!
