Discount- Alumni got an email with a code for Finish Line Scrapbooking.
Supplies- It's totally up to you. I love doing 8.5 by 11 for projects- I didn't do all the prompts this year (which I'm totally fine with) and still have the page protectors from last year (plus I ordered extras) but I went ahead an ordered a pack of the 9 pockets for the class. I'm also taking Move More Eat Well which will also be 8.5 by 11 and I'll keep the projects in the same binder for now.
I've already picked my word for 2012 and am super excited about it. It kinda came to me where as I feel like I chose my word for 2011. This year was the first year I really settled on a word and went with it. It's been amazing to see how that one word has impacted the year.
