ArcMap: Labeling showing everywhere, even on top of other shapefiles

ArcMap is showing labeling on top of every shapefile.  How do I limit the areas where labeling is occurring?  For example, I do not want the labeling to appear where there are other shapefiles on top of it.  How do I limit labeling where I drew polygons or other shapes?  I don't want to have to create a new smaller shapefile and I don't want to have to convert all of the labels into annotation.
