I decided to do a layout about my daughter's love of counting, she really likes learning numbers, which I don't think she inherited from me!
I wanted the 1,2,3 to be a real feature of my layout, so I created a large cut-out of the numbers, to look a bit like it had been cut on a Silhouette die-cutting machine. I've been loving the look of these cut titles but can't afford the machine right now, so though this way of doing it is more time consuming, and less neat, it works for me right now!
The 1,2,3 template was made in Microsoft Publisher. I just made 3 seperate text boxes, typed a number into each (using Baskerville Old Face type, size 350), and moved them about until the numbers overlapped. I then printed it out and checked it was about the right size to fit onto a 12x12 layout:
I cut the numbers out and used pencil to draw around them onto the back of my patterned paper - making sure to flip the template so it would come out the right way around:
Then I cut it out with a craft knife, and mounted it onto my layout with 3D foam dots. It's nice and eye catching having such a large cut-out title! If you want to use my 1,2,3 template to make something for this challenge (or for anything else), then I've saved it as a word document for you to download here.

I'll be back tomorrow to show you something exciting! (Well, exciting for me!) Ta ta for now, x
