    What machine are use using ?
    Positioning your material so the rollers roll over can lead to the material sticking down. 

    The stickiness required varies depending on the material you're cutting. 
    It takes a little practice to be able to judge.

    It's also important the adhesive is applied evenly. If it is uneven it can lead to cutting issues.

    A method of reducing the stickiness of your mat is to lay a old t-shirt on it and roll it down with a brayer or a rolling pin then peel off the shirt.
    The idea is to transfer lint off the shirt which makes the mat less sticky. 

    When a mat begins to become not sticky enough rinsing under tap water can rejuvenate the sticky.
