yes the "cracking" "popping" sound is normal. If the sandwich feels to tight when you are rolling it through try using the dies on tab 1 and see if that works better for you. You may need to add some shim to your sandwich that way but each machine is different so just play until you find what works.
You could also try the sandwich for users that don't have the MPP. I'll look it up and link it here in a sec...here ya go:
If you do not have platform with two tabs, a shim will be needed. Approx. 1/16" thick should do the trick. Spellbinder Spacer plate is perfect for the job or just buy a Sizzix Big Shot tabbed platform. (Thanks Jane!)
Remember your plates are consumables and they are going to get cut marks in them after each use. Just rotate each time you cut to get the most milage out of them.
