Most of my cardstock is Bazzil. This machine should be so useful but right now I feel like it's a piece of cr*p!
On top of that, try as I might, I have been unable to figure out how to move the rollers so that at least if I'm going to keep ruining paper, it can be 8 1/2 x 11. There is no explanation in the user manual or on the Silhouette website - does anyone know the trick to moving the rollers?
Thanks in advance
My rollers were very hard to move. I took a rubber glove to turn it with and it did not budge for me. My husband finally got it to move. I cannot move the roller myself. I was hoping it would get easier to move, but it hasn't.

I have had a lot of the same problems you are experiencing. I cut at a lower speed which helps some. I have found the smaller the image is, the harder it is to get a good cut.
