News from Needs A Ribbon
Stampin’ Up!
With Sandy McManus

Wow! Was that the shortest summer in Minnesota ever. Or at least it felt like it. Maybe it was all the rains in June. Anyway, we got to the State Fair this year on a perfect summer day. Always a fun day. And we moved my son to college in Winona, where his sister attends. Guess it’s all in the family. Go Warrior pride! 


The Holiday (Fall/Winter) catalog went live September 5, 2018! If you have purchased from me in the last year (ish) you received a hard copy of the catalog. If you would like a copy of the catalog or know someone that would, email me today

And with a new catalog means an upcoming Extravaganza showcasing the fantastic products in the catalog. See below for more information and more event information.

Stampin’ Up!s 30thanniversary celebration is happening all year. Their big huge fun celebration is happening in November in Orlando. There is still time to join my teamand attend the big celebration. 

If you have been on the fence about making the decision to join the company I have been part of for 13thyears, just do it! It’s $99 plus local tax and you get $125 worth of products and all the business things you need to get going. Stay with us a while and change your life (it certainly changed mine), or try it for a few months and see if you like it. 

I am really really close to reaching my next level. If I do by September 30th, I get to attend a special party on November 7that Convention. And I have a special gift for you for joining. Consider it today. I love what I do and love sharing what I love. Every day. 


I have my recurring monthly Stamp-A-Stack of 6 cards (2 each 3 cards). Payment due by the 15thof the month to participate. Make them in person or make at home. Learn more!
