Check your glue. Make sure you don't have too much and that it has dried completely. Also, adjust the blade. Did you register to get the new basic 1 with the cutting adjustment. Keep it plugged in when you cut. You don't need to hold it down with too much pressure, but you need to know the machine. You have to hold it steady. I just bought it and haven't lost any paper at all. Mine cuts perfectly with barely no pressure. Also, contact Making Memories. they are a wonderful company and will help you out.
