I've had my cameo since before Christmas. I bought 4 mats since I like to cut multiples out. I can put the paper on several sheets and feed them through one after another. All four mats are still sticky and fine. The blade is still cutting fine. I've cut out several projects.
I had an original silhouette before the Cameo. I changed the blade once in 4 years and bought new mats maybe a couple of times.
