The simple answer is that its all about prevention and patterning. ALWAYS have a soft toy to shove in her mouth when you are engaging with her. Keep your hands, feet, voice quiet and don't get her all wound up. Make the toy the more enticing stimulus. If you have to, smear a bit of peanut butter on the toy. Never use your hands as playthings, so don't ruffle her up with your hands such that she wants to play with your hands as she would another puppy.
If she gets wild and starts biting your pants, sleeves, etc. calmly disengage from her, walk away, leave her in a "time out" for a minute or two.
The good news is puppies grow up and don't need to bite everything all the time.
If you check out some of the "puppy biting" threads (do a site search) you'll find some video links on how to train a la Kikopup methods. Or go to kikopup's channel and do a site search there.
