So any ideas on how to get her to stop?

Then again, she is just two. Even for an advanced two year old, she is probably just repeating what she has heard a lot. If the people she is around say shut up, she will say it. The easiest way to get her to stop is probably to stop saying it around her and intentionally use alternative phrases around her, like, "Shh, please be a little quieter."

follow the format of giving a warning (or using the counting method) and then a time out with no emotional response to the behavior.
This must be tried a few times before giving up on this method...and the child should stay in time out (about 1 min per age, although for a 2 year old 1 minute is still a good punishment) and if not then she is to go back to time out and the time starts again. if she likes to challenge this may take a few times.
Its only when she knows you will not back down that the behavior will stop.
also make sure to take time to give a big emotional response when she does things well...i.e. tries a new skills, plays quietly or uses good words.
