I'm new to scraping and would like to know what machine to purchase for lettering, I don't want sticker letters, I want to be able to use a script and have different choices for using quotes and poems, etc.

Sounds like you're looking for a die-cutting machine! Machines such as the Big Shot or Vagabond require the use of dies, which can be purchased separately, to cut out letters and shapes. A Cricut or eclips uses cartridges that come pre-loaded with fonts and shapes and allow you to manipulate the sizes of the image you're cutting out. A similar machine is the Silhouette and this machine can connect to your computer, allowing you to use fonts and images you have already or that you download. Stop by your local Archiver's anytime and they'll be more than happy to give you a demonstration of a machine and help you find the best one for you. Hope this helps!
