Got my cricut today, tried a couple cuts, but the paper is pretty much glued to the mat - it's ridiculous! I have all the spatula tools, but this sticky problem is way more than what a spatula could handle. I literally spent almost 30 min scraping all the paper off, then trying to wash the teeny tiny little pieces off. In the process,I've added a bunch of dust and cat hair to the mat.

So frustrated - spent almost 4 hours on the new machine today and not getting much of anywhere :(

Why are the mats so sticky that you can't even get your paper off without bending / peeling / tearing / ripping it?

After a few cuts you will be more upset that is not sticky BigGrin That said take your hands and pat over the mat, it will take away some of the sticky, and make sure you are using a thick cardstock for the first few cuts.
