Using this style isn’t about being arty, although many arty people may find themselves within this style.
The plan+do styles are a combination of your personality + planning + productivity styles that shows you what kind of planner pages work best + how to get things done in the most productive way for YOU!
Creatives love exploring ideas and coming up with new + innovative solutions.
you enjoy exploring new ideas
and coming up with innovative solutions
challenge the status quo, just because
You’re a big picture thinker. You enjoy exploring new ideas + coming up with innovative solutions.
Creatives love nothing better than turning an old idea into something new. You like to tweak tradition.
Often times you find yourself challenging the status quo just to see what happens. You find it difficult to accept something … just because.
Questions for you often start with “What if …?” or “Why …?”
As a Creative, give yourself the gift of flexibility + the space to create a day that works with you. You’ll focus better.
large chunks of time for projects
plenty of time to dive into the details
avoid distractions and get things done
A tightly scheduled day doesn’t bring you peace or joy like it does for others.
Ideally you like to work with large chunks of time for your projects. This allows you to work from with the big picture in focus, and have time to get into the details + do what needs to be done.
Having a theme for your week or days works great.
Knowing that you have plenty of time set aside to dive into projects or tasks helps to keep you from getting bored or distracted.
Within these weekly or daily themes you can batch smaller + less exciting tasks together to keep you from getting distracted.
When working on a big project, you may like to divide your days into different parts of the project.
And just like your schedule, you love lots of white space in your planner.
lots of space
double page spreads with plenty of room
lots of notes pages
capture ideas any time and where
big picture view for focus and delegation
Use double page spreads to have that big picture view of what’s happening for both the year and month pages.
Make sure you have plenty of grid or note pages throughout your planner to capture those ideas when they come. You may even like to add some to the reverse side of your week + month pages.
With a weekly page + a master todo list you’ll have the flexibility you crave while being able to focus on what matters.
If you are coordinating a larger family or mixing personal + business together you may prefer a double week spread with your master todo list.
Be sure to clear your mind with a weekly meeting. They are great for families and work teams too.
Write down everything that needs your attention for the coming week. A side yet beneficial bonus is that now everyone else knows what they are responsible for 😉
Your mind can be used for other creative things instead of trying to remember things for yourself + others.
When things pop into your mind simply write it on the master todo list.
Stickers, washi tape + coloured pens are often essentials as you get things done.
There isn’t a crafting product that’s off limits for you. Add some photos + your planner becomes a keepsake too!
Expressive page recipe
Each Planner Kit comes with a Tip Guide with recipes for all the plan+do styles using that kit.
These examples are from the ColourMe Kit.
Year C gives you space to plot the big picture details of the year.
#tip : Using some thin washi tape is a fun + creative way of blocking in holidays, trips + other events.
Month B makes it easy to map out what’s happening, combining personal, business + family, If you don’t need as much space Month A is a great single page option.
You can also use Month F and create a hanging wall calendar.
#tip : Write family member’s name or life categories on the lines for easy planning. Different coloured pens for each let’s you quickly see what’s on for everyone.
Week B is perfect for noting your most important tasks for the day + to see the whole week at once.
Maybe you prefer some writing space instead of columns, then Week C is for you.
Like a day to a page use Today B’s two column design for managing your tasks with plenty of space for your creativity.

I absolutely LOVE my planner and the fact that it fits into my life, rather than I fit into it. I'd be lost without my planner now. It's the best!
I've actually been using the Burst since 2017 and I absolutely love it. I've tried countless productivity and to do list and planning apps over the years, I gave up and went back to a paper planner!
Thanks sooo much, Jacqui!! I really love the planner. I've used it for the third year now 🙂 And now I can use it for the fourth time also.
I know what it feels like to spend more time organising what needs to be done, than actually getting things done and feeling frustrated at the lack of progress.
Here at WhiteSpace Design Studio we know you are the kind of person who wants to plan your day with confidence, be more productive + have a better work-life balance.
To do that you need a planner designed just for you.
The problem is ...
most planners only come with one specific page style and layout that you have to adapt to which makes you feel like something’s wrong with you.
The reason you’re stuck in the planning loop, that is spending more time organising what needs to be done, instead of actually getting things done, is that there’s no one size fits all solution. And I understand that you need a planner that’s versatile to work the way you do + flexible to change with your needs.
That’s why I created FUSElife Planners so you could mix + match to create a personal planner that’s designed just for YOU!
So don't waste any more time or money, buy a FUSElife Planner Kit and create a planner that's designed just for you so you can be more productive and enjoy getting things done.

My daughter and I both love your style! We plan to put a spiral binding on it as opposed to putting it into a binder. She is headed off to college in the fall and was looking for the perfect planner.
I love all the options and choices! It certainly will be a planner designed just for me! I couldn’t find one in any store that I liked enough to buy. So excited to get started printing and planning! Thanks for making this so easy!
