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
Bazzill is a tough one to cut on the Cameo...it's more fibrous and snags quite a bit on tight turns. I usually don't use it because of this, but when I do I turn the speed all the way down to 1 with a blade setting of 5 or 6. From there, you can probably play with the thickness setting a little to find something that works for you.

I had a tough time moving my rollers at first, but they seem to be easier to move now. The hardest part really is getting a good grip. Silhouette has a video on Youtube that may help you:
