Is anyone else having this problem, if so how did you correct it?

Miss Cricut, she is a little stubborn.

I hope all this is going to take is practice, practice, practice! The pro's make it look so easy. All you have to do is lay out some crisco, slap down some gum paste, feed the mat into the machine, bring the blade in a bit and 'BAM' you have a beautiful butterfly! RIGHT???

My first attempt!

My name is Nadia, and I'm a 32-yr-old business owner in Ontario, Canada. I've just finished Course #1 (intro) of the Wilton Cake Decorating 4-course series, which was held at my local Michael's store. I decided to join the course because I was itching to do something artsy (my business is education-related) and have been watching way too much Cake Boss and Ultimate Cake Off! Since I'm one of those people who looks at stuff and immediately thinks that "I can do that!", I thought I'd put…
