If you aren't that good with computers. Maybe look into what the two ladies above said. A Cricut or a Slice machine. Or maybe think about getting a cuttle bug. I think some dies like Tim Holtz can fit in them.
I would even suggest the eBosser - which can handle the sizzix original size dies AND doe 8.5x12 sheets of paper.
Another option if you are looking to spend the money is a Sizzix Big Shot Pro, which can take 12x12 dies............ Dies are always a nice place to start because you get options and it's a cheaper investment sometimes than getting a machine you won't use.....
I'm going to go in a different direction and say the Silhouette.
Yes, it is computer based but it is not in the least hard to use.
Click on an image, it drops to your screen, you pull the arrow to make it the size you want and you cut. Easy as can be. Now of coarse a does so much more- but you don't have to know how to do all that to use it.
It is the cheapest machine to own in the long run.
I have invested thousands in my Cricut family,
Had I known about the silhouette I would have never started the Cricut collection. The cart collecting gets expensive after a while!
The other machines like the Cuttlebug and BigKick/shot are nice, there too, the dies are expensive and always limit your size, but they do give great cuts!
The Slice, I don't have. I don't even know if they are still being made. But I do remember reading a lot where many had troubles with theirs.
My favorite right now is (well, after my Silhouette) is the Cricut mini- you can get one for just under $100 and use it with the free CCR program. Computer based program but very easy to use and they give freebies all the time (to use).
I saw the ebosser demonstrated. If I buy another machine - that is it! WOW! Very impressive machine but I'm not sure how much I would use it for scrapbooking. If I could justify it by saying I would use it a lot, I would buy it immediately!
If I remember correctly, there should be some scrapbook stores down in your neck of the woods. You may want to try them and see if they have any of the die cutting options to try - see which one you like. Because you would want to make titles and simple shapes, I would suggest the Cricut. However, be warned that you will have the urge to learn what you can do with whatever machine you get - meaning even if you won't use all the capabilities when you get it, you will want to. So you need to decide if you will be okay with sticking with "cart content" only, or if you will want to be able to purchase files from the internet.
Another option would be to see if you can find a used cricut that works for cheap.
