nickesons, i am sorry you are having some troubles. the Slice can be a bit tempermental at times!
Julie gave some great advice , and i agree that maybe your adhesive isnt quite holding your paper well enough to keep the tiny items still while cutting.
the message boards are still active at whyslice, the link is under "support" now. i did have some troubles signing in when i first registered, so i sent an email and they helped me get in.
if you still are having troubles, go to whyslice, click on "support" then "submit an issue". explain to them just like you did here, and they are quick to answer. they also have a ph # too, which i have heard is even faster help.
i hope they can get you fixed up and you can have fun slicing away the day soon
