There are many complaints on scrapbooking boards about these cutters.  I use a classic guillotine cutter I bought about 12 years ago from an office supply store for about $40, and it’s never let me down.  I actually bought it to cut vinyl tile for a floor redo (worked great).

make sure the blade is very clean for each cut, dust builds up quick.  Or if you can, return it.  Sorry I’m not much help.

you probably need a new blade. fiskars blades get dull really quickly.

I bought one and took it back about 10 minutes after opening it.  It never worked for me.  We ended up cutting everything by hand.  Much happier with the results.  A tip for cutting shapes with scissors is to move the paper, not the scissors.

@TattooedChick23:  I’ve been using my exacto knife and ruler for the past few years. I found that my craft cutter really hasn’t worked too well.
