I know the cameo mats hold up well & last quite a while. What about the cutting blades?

It depends on what you cut. If I am cutting something delicate I will use a new blade. I also have a blade I use just for vinyl.

I've been able to go quite a while without changing the blade.

I am not the Pea you are looking for

I'm still using my original blade and I opened my Cameo for Christmas in 2011. I use it very frequently.

I've only had mine since November but I'm trying to cut something fairly delicate and it keeps tearing up the paper. I checked the blade to make sure nothing is stuck or gumbled up in it and double checked the setting. I do use it quite a bit. I think I'll try a new blade for it since it's so small and keep using the current blade for other things.

The blades also last a long long time. I am still using my original blade.

I've had my Cameo since October of 2011 and am only on the second blade. I've cut vinyl, cardstock, regular patterned paper and even tons of glitter over Christmas. However, I did notice with my last few cuts that I will need to change the blade for more intricate designs.

I was wondering this too. I'm on my original blade, at just under a year. I don't use it that much though (trying to change that this year!).
